Have to pay for coffee even if breakfast included
The hotel is very high on the hill. The rooms are very old fashioned style. Shower very bad. Ran out of hot water and had no pressure. Pool closes at 7 pm. They Charged for coffee for included breakfast, which is weird in Italian culture.

AMAZING hotel with amazing service!
Everything about our stay at Hotel Sole Costello was great! I can't say enough about how friendly the staff was - from check-in, to breakfast every morning, and especially to the poolside bartender in the afternoon! Some of the negative reviews we had read prior to our trip mentioned that the rooms didn't have air conditioning in June, but that was absolutely not the case! Our room had central air that kept the room feeling great and was constantly operating (as long as the balcony door was closed). From our experience, the negative reviews saying that the rooms were hot or full of mosquitos were absolutely unfounded. Quick note about traveling into downtown Taormina - there are two staircases that lead from the hotel directly down into the city center, and the front desk staff gave us very clear directions when we checked in about how to access each staircase and which one to use at night, etc. It was an easy walk down (taking about 15 - 20 minutes by the time we stopped to admire the amazing views), but it could definitely be a challenge to walk up the stairs at the end of a long day of sight-seeing! Luckily the city bus (stops are labelled "Fermata") stopped right at the front door of the hotel! The name of the stop is Madonna della Rocca and there is a bus schedule posted right in the lobby for easy reference. All in all - a truly amazing hotel and great way to experience everything that Taormina has to offer!!!

Good 6.0
Friendly staff - basic room
Hotel reception areas were in good condition with friendly and helpful staff. My room however, was very basic and outdated with cracked plaster and cracked tiles in the bathroom. That bathroom was small with a small shower. The doors are also paper-thin so could hear everything in the hallway. Was fine for a few nights (shorter stay) though.

Good enough at a affordable price level
We went to Taormina for a nice getaway. The hotel has a price level that you can afford and it does show in certain areas. + The view is amazing + Friendly and service-oriented staff with good english + Very calm - The hotel is located almost at the very top of the mountain. I would not recommend the hotel if you do not have a car. It will either cost you around 15 euro to get up the hill, or you will have a tough exercise - We had the dinner/buffet one night for 20 euro and it is a rip-off - Breakfast is the same every morning and not a very good. Decent at its best Regardless of the cons, I would recommend it if you are looking at something affordable at a pricey destination. Manage your expectations and do not expect to check-in at a high-end hotel.

Great staff, great pool, great views dated room.
Last minute booking due to flight being cancelled and found the cheapest one with a pool. Located right at the top of the hill which gives the most stunning views. Internally it requires a full refurbishment which is a shame as the staff so friendly and helpful. The pool area was stunning and perfect to sunbath and swim. It’s cheap and the reason is it’s dated inside. If they could invest it would be well worth more. If you’re on a budget and happy to walk for 15 mins (it’s a lot of steps) and want a pool then this place is perfect. Great breakfast.
