In an expensive town like Taormina, it is difficult to find such a great deal. Circe was a bargain and I am so happy that we chose to stay there. Guiseppe (the hotel manager) was extremely friendly and accommodating, and made the stay that much more enjoyable. I would recommend anybody stay here while in Taormina.

Grazie per la recensione, ma Giuseppe non è mai stato il manager del Residence Circe, era solo il receptionist.

Never been to Taormina (or indeed Sicily) before, we did all our booking and research online.... Taorminas' closest airport is CATANIA; you'll need to catch a train / bus or Taxi. The quotes for these came in at around 250 - 300 Euro (It's 1.1 to the GBP at the moment). We used a Taxi firm local to Catania booked...

Excellent location and hotel. Centrally located with many restaurants and shops. Hotel manager (receptionist) was great. He even offered us a free room after checkout to have a shower before leaving Taormina. Highly recommended!

Residence Circe is located on the main pedestrian walk way. We stayed 5 days in room 201, which had a big bed and one single. It also had a kitchenette and a large terrace over looking the city, the greek theatre and the ocean. The breakfast is provided at the hotel restaurant across the way which also offers a 20%...

We loved Residence Circe. It offers very good value in Taormina - which is a very expensive town. The location on Corso Umberto I is very good. We had a room with a small balcony facing Corso Umberto I. The noise did not bother us, but if you are a light sleeper, earplugs might be a good idea. The hotel...

The pros: excellent location on the main walk street; super helpful and friendly owner; fun to have a little balcony looking out on the walk street; enjoyable sister-hotel (Piccolo Jardin) with a lobby, Internet access/computer, and peaceful garden. The cons: noisy at night on the first floor when the bars close or groups walk by; basic room (but the owner...

“Ask for a room with a terrace. Some of the rooms have a locked kitchen area which you pay extra for if you want to use it.”

“The main street is very busy until late at night. Our room was at the back and was very quiet but I imagine that rooms at the front may be noisy. Having said that, if you are out until quite late like most people tend to be in Taormina it wouldn't be a problem.”
