Loved the location of this 2 room guest house just a 5 minute walk from the heart of Taormina. Away from the noise of the center, but with a spectacular view of the sea from your room and from the breakfast terrace outside your door. Room was exceptionally large with private bath....not fancy, but clean and comfy. Nelly is a... More

My hubby and I stayed here for 3 nights and extended for a further night because we loved it so much. Taormina is a beautiful place (driving can be a little hair raising...) Giuseppe kindly parked our car in the car spot for us the first night & he gave us invaluable information including a wonderful restaurant at the beginning... More

The place has a great view of the sea and you can have breakfast in the balcony. It is a very short walk to the center of Taormina and there is free parking nearby. But the highlight of the place is Nelly herself! She is a sweet, funny, friendly old lady that made us feel at home immediately. Definitely recommended!

We stayed at Nelly's Guest House for 3 nights this August, and thought it was a very convenient and nice place in Taormina. Location- very convenient. 1 minute walk to the main street, 3 minute walk to the funiculeur to the beach, 5 minute walk to the bus staton. The house is on a quiet street, near a supermarket (a...

I had the good fortune of staying at Nelly's one night (wish i could have stayed longer!). Not only was the location perfect, but the room was spacious and clean, with air conditioning and wifi. Nelly is a great hostess - very sincere, warm and caring who served up a wonderful breakfast on the balcony overlooking the sea. I enjoyed... More

Nelly's Guest House is a very nice B&B, possibly with the greatest view of Taormina. The owner is the sweetest lady ever, who will do anything to make you feel at home - like an italian grandma. It is very affordable, even at the hight of summer, great bed with clean and perfumed sheets, great shower, flowers in the bathroom,... More

Nelly and her son Giuseppe provide a very comfortable room with a gorgeous view. The B&B is so conveniently located in the town, close to all the attractions. Lovely breakfast and great conversations with Nelly (using our very very limited Italian) where we learned about the town, who has lived and visited there and its history. Giuseppe, whose English is... More

My friend and I arrived in Taormina on the very off season (after some tiring travel experiences) only to find that most hostels and B&Bs in the town were closed for the winter. We were pointed towards Nelly's Guest House by a shop owner and could not have been happier. We were given a beautiful room with a double bed... More

Very friendly host and excellent views to the sea from the terrasse, which every room has direct access to and where you can have breakfast with fresh juice and coffee. Free parking for one car is also available inside the property. Otherwise parking at the Lumbi park house is close but somewhat expensive. This B&B is very close to the... More

We had a wonderful 2 night stay at Nelly's and would have liked to stay longer. The room was big, the guesthouse is only a few minutes walk to the main attractions and city centre in Taormina, and the view from the balcony (where we ate breakfast) is beautiful. Giuseppe is a great host who was very accomodating for our... More
