Hotel Metropole Taormina – Maison d’Hotes

Location: Taormina
Sleeps: 46
Bedrooms: 23
Features: the only 5* hotel right along the main street in Taormina
Surroundings: Mt. Etna, Catania, Syracuse


Located on a peak overhanging the sea the Metropole Maison d’Hôtes rises in the ancient heart of Taormina, the only 5* hotel along Corso Umberto, the main street.
Originally a historical hotel, the building was built in the XVII century and it has marked the gold age of the Sicilian belle époque. At the beginning of the XX century the hotel took the name Metropole and kept it until the 1971, year in which it closed down.
After more than 40 years of silence the historical Metropole opens again his doors to its guests in its new magnificent flavour, the right balance between contemporary design and classical elegance.
The wise renovations have be able to show up the original architectural elements and to dig up not only some pieces of priceless value – like the ancient marble of the main stairs, the original plasters and the noble heights of the ceilings – but also the legendary and mythological atmosphere of which this place is drenched.  The sophisticated atmosphere and the amazing view on the bay of Giardini Naxos you enjoy entering the lobby will enchant you at first sight.

The Property

The  Metropole Maison d'Hôtes offers 23 rooms divided into: Comfort rooms, Deluxe rooms, SPA & Deluxe Junior Suite rooms, Deluxe & Design Suite rooms

The hotel Bellevue Restaurant is the home of the The menu of the  Michelin Star famous Chef Andreas Zangerl who looks for selected products and for typical recipes and thanks to his creativity he creates new unforgettable haute cuisine flavours with a strong attention for quality and innovation.

The wine list includes the best Italian and international etiquettes hosted in the wine cellars of the hotel while the most rare spirits can be enjoyed also at Metropole Lounge which reaches the top of his allure during the sunset when the terrace becomes magical and everybody is carried in a timeless dimension.

The SPA is located in the most ancient part of the hotel, dating back to the XV century.
Hammam, Jacuzzi, emotional shower, posarium and heated couchs done in molten rock mesh together and develop following the centuries-old stone which opens the sight to the blue of the sea through beautiful geometries.
Two ancient and invaluable columns dating back to the Greek period, placed here by Biagio De Spuches the famous archeologist who lived at Metropole and used the hotel and the home also for his private collection, are the modern frame of the Turkish bath.

The panoramic pool is the perfect place to relax and sunbathe drinking a cocktail prepared in the pool-bar.

The Area

Guy The Maupassant wrote in 1885: "If somebody would spend only one day in Sicily and ask what it is worthy to see, I would surely say with no hesitation: Taormina".
So, Taormina is definitely still the star of the area joined by Mt Etna, set in the background, with its fiery beauty and its contrasts: green woods with a lunar landscape, red hot lava when erupting and white snow in winter. Mt Etna offers several nice villages to visit on the way to the Rifugio Sapienza (Nicolosi area) and Piano Provenzana (Linguaglossa area) from where you can get a cable car or an off-road bus to reach 3000 mt, close to the main crater! The coast of eastern Sicily washed by the blue of the Ionian Sea is just a few kilometers away, with Catania, Syracuse, Noto and Messina easy to be reached for a one day trip from the Metropole Maison d'Hôtes.
