This hotel is right on Corso Umberto, i.e. right in the middle of everything. We had a room looking onto the street, which we enjoyed. The room was of a good size and the bed was comfortable. The bath room was however on the small side, it was difficult to turn around in the shower. The hotel has a roof... More

Wardrobe hinge loose, safe didn't open and wasn't put right after asking on the first day. Bathroom also very dark, unable to see to shave in. Bath mat... More

The Isabella is a nice & very clean hotel right in the centre of Taormina with easy access to all the resort amenities, restaurants, bars, shops etc. The room was a bit small, but adequate for two people, with a fridge, air conditioning & a safe. The power sockets in this hotel were unfamiliar to me with (3 pins vertical... More

Such a shame for a hotel so well positioned on the Corso Umberto with wonderful views to the back over the rooftops. Shabby entrance, tired looking corridors and stairways, poky rooms and bathrooms so small an average person cannot towel dry themselves, - nothing like the website which makes the hotel seems far more polished than in reality. Mixed staff,... More

The hotel is on the main street of Taormina, which is obviously has some benefits and drawbacks like people, who were talking loud late at night on the street, etc. The hotel itself was good, but nothing special. The room was pretty small, but clean. The breakfast was good too. The stuff was nice but not too much. Everything is... More

After reading the reviews again, after I stayed here I wondered what some people expect. The Hotel Isabella is an old hotel suitated in a perfect position. The room was clean, the queen bed was comfortable & I enjoyed my view looking over the rooftop to the sea.Yes the clean bathroom is small but how long do you spend there... More

The staff were generally helpful and friendly. However, the breakfast was appalling. On one day, there was no bread; there was rarely any local fruit. The room was adequate and clean, but being stuck in what felt like the most expensive street in Italy with no useful shops, etc., was a disappointment.

Hotel Isabella has always been my first choice when visiting the charming city of Taormina. The location is simlpy perfect, right on Corso Umberto. You walk out of the front door and you are smack in the centre of everything. They have just refurbished the entrance which has further enhanced the standard. Service is very good and the facilities are... More

We visited this Hotel for a week in January 2014. There were 5 of us in two rooms. Rooms were comfortable and clean. Free Wi-Fi in the reception area kept the teenagers happy. Very central location on the Corso close to shops and lots of restaurants. Great breakfast. Staff were very helpful.

My husband and I were in Taormina for 3 days in December to attend some friends' wedding. We stayed at Hotel Isabella. Our luggage was lost, so we spent the next day running around to find some clothes to wear for the wedding. I was surprised that we couldn't get internet in our room and had to pay for it.... More
