    Excellent location

    The location was excellent, the staff great. The hotel itself was nice enough but the price was too high overall. Stains (rust?) in the bathroom floor was a check minus for a 5 star hotel. The view from our room was of surrounding buildings roof tops at eye level. The breakfast was good,

    What a beautiful hotel. Small and quaint. They kindly upgraded our rooms (just because) and the views were amazing as well as the rooms. Right in the thick of the action but very quiet. Would highly recommend this very special hotel!

    Very Good Choice for Taormina.

    Excellent property in this very small town with few choices. Located not too far from the Porta Catania parking structure where one must park since you can’t drive into town. Nice hotel, great service. The breakfast could be a bit better, but no big deal.

    So close...

    My wife and I visited Taormina for the first time and stayed at El Jebel for 5 nights. It is well worth considering as a centre for your stay, with many positives - that said, there are some areas that require attention that should be mentioned. So, the good things 1. The staff - meeting us at the Parking was really helpful, and indicative of the attention of the staff. They were universally kind, welcoming and attentive. 2. The location - just perfect for a stay in the Old Town. Just off the bustling Corsa Umberto, close to shops and a huge variety of restaurants and bars, yet quiet. Great views from the (underused) Roof Terrace 3. The room - light, airy, clean and regularly serviced. Perfect. Areas that need attention 1. breakfast. Honestly, really poor for a 5 star property of this standing. Poor choice, low quality (eg, juices) - this shouldn’t be difficult to get right but previous reviews we have seen have not been acted on 2. Facilities - whatever the reviews say, there is no gym, and although the hotel says they have an arrangement with a gym, some of the reception staff didn’t even know where there was a gym. - the hotel advertises a beach club, which is nice if a reasonable trip. However, this is NOT included in the price, and you pay a day rate per person of €20 - which I don’t think is clear.
