Outstanding value in Taormina!

Since Sicily was a new region for us, we wanted to be able to have the same type of vacation rental feel of an apartment, but with the resources we might need should we want to ask questions. The Hotel Condor did not disappoint.

We stayed in the "dependence" apartment which is separate from the hotel but still has all of the amenities including the lovely breakfast on the rooftop terrace each morning overlooking the sea. Free wi-fi also! The Hotel Condor is rated a 2* hotel, but felt much better than that!

The apartment was small and haphazardly furnished, but sufficient, with two bedrooms, one bath (shower only and if you are a "big and tall" it will be a tight squeeze) and a small L/R D/R kitchen combo with small fridge.

The location is within walking distance to the Corso Umberto.

I didn't see any of the other rooms in the hotel. The beds were extremely comfortable, I fell fast asleep each night. The twin room has more noise than the full as it seemed to be adjacent to a courtyard or walkway to another apartment.

This is a family run hotel, and they helped us arrange a rental car, arranged transport to and from the airport and as well provided some excellent restaurant recommendations. We also got fresh towels every day, even though in the apartment it was only supposed to be every three days, which was nice. It was thoroughly cleaned each day. The TV did not have English channels.

For 5 nights we paid E89 per night for the apartment! Since we were two couples I still cannot believe how inexpensive it was for such a nice place, and including breakfast, and free wi-fi! It was E445 in total.

If you require a lot of room this may not be a good place, (our apt. in Rome was absolutely huge in comparison), but as a value hotel it really could not be beat. I highly recommend it as a clean, charming, comfortable budget option.
