I was pretty excited to stay in this hotel based on the photos I saw online, and I must say I wasn't disappointed. Taormina is a difficult city to drive in and it was definitely an adventure trying to find our way to this place and up a pedestrian street, but we finally made it. This is definitely a pricey...

We stayed at this hotel at least 4 times and no doubt it's one of our favourite places. We always feel like home there. End of September-October is probably the best time to visit as not many tourists around and weather is not baking hot. Location, views, service, people, atmosphere, food are great there. Very cosy and welcoming, we will...

Stayed for 4 nights with family in two suites towards the end of last year, was particularly lucky with the weather. Hotel is exceptional and breakfast an absolute delight ! Drinks ie can be slightly on the expensive side, however this hotel for beauty and location makes it well worthy. Would definitely recommend.

We spent 4 nights here , just before the hotel closed for the season. It is magnificent. We had a gallery room in the villa flora, a few minutes walk from the main hotel. Beautiful room, very quiet, might not be suitable for disabled visitors as its an uphill walk. The view from the room is spectacular, as is the...

The views, the rooms, the location and the service make Hotel Timeo a perfect choice when visiting Taormina. We absolutely loved our stay and I cannot say enough about the service. Every single person we came into contact with went above and beyond to help us enjoy our stay. The hotel should be very very proud of their staff.

The town is beautiful (maybe a bit touristy), the hotel is beautiful, the grounds are beautiful...what more can I say? Oh...the staff is stellar. And, this deserves a special note; Stupid me left over $1000 US in the room safe when we departed. Before I even realized my my mistake, they emailed me about the money. I applaud their honesty...

Spectacular views, delightful staff, perfect position next to the Roman Amphitheatre Ruins and atop Taormina village, easy access to restaurants and shopping, free shuttle to sister hotel Santa Andrea on the beach - divine. However, the Old Girl looks tied at the end of the season. At over $1,000.00 a night one doesn't expect mould in bathroom shower, dripping cisterns...

This place is simply the best. Even the most spoilt travelers will find it hard to find something to complain. Clearly not cheap but that is to be expected. Take the in room breakfast that's amazing!!
