Nice three star hotel in one of the best locations in Taormina. Our room was a nice size, bearing in mind the price and that you only use it to sleep in, the a/c worked quietly and well, the bathroom facilities are bit basic and the shower small - don't drop the soap - but the balcony with a proper...

My review starts hours after we arrive in Taormina, with Alitalia loosing our luggage for 4 days. The hotel in centered in the middle of town between the Messina and Catania property lines The staff did every thing they could do to help us, I can never thank them enough. Gave me advice on where to buy personal things, clothes,... More

I might be a bit harsh but this hotel really isn't nice, the rooms was dark and dingy but if all you want is a place to sleep it's perfect, great location right in the middle of everything and next to the bus stop and cable cart, the rooms are kind of dirty, the bathroom was really old, they need...

This boutique hotel has a great location within Taormina without having to negotiate steps each time you arrive/leave hotel. Also has a nice ambiance and very courteous staff. Our room was spacious with a balcony overlooking Taormina and with a view to the sea. The room however could use some updating/renovation and the shower was very small. Wifi only available... More

This charming hotel is located right on the main drag of Taormina. Perfect. And no steps to be negotiated to get to the street. The room was spacious and clean with a lovely view of the sea. Our balcony made it very charming. We had brought a bottle of Prosecco from Sorrento to enjoy at this hotel. When I asked... More

We stayed in Hotel Isabella for four nights. The room was comfortable and clean but the bathroom was tiny. The shower was quite a struggle to get in and out of but once in there was plenty of hot water. We had a balcony which was lovely, a great place to sit and get some sun. The breakfast was the...

As a couple, stayed here two nights in a standard room. The room was small, scuff marks on the walls and in great need of a re-paint. The corridor walls on our floor were similarly scuffed and grubby. The lampshades in our room were specked with black insect marks. Such a shame. The place is in a good central location.... More

Nice location. Room (number 46) facing to street, reconstruction work, starting 7.00 am! Room has balcony but the view is no good. Bed is ok, but hard&thin pillows. There is air-con, but not very effective. Small fridge in room is useful; tv channels: Only CNBC (just business news) in english. Breakfast ok, no warm stuff at all. Only cherry tomatoes... More

Our group arrived late afternoon and were greeted by a broken elevator. All of our rooms were on the 4th floor and as this was a 2 week trip we all had very large suitcases. Lugging everything up was not fun. We had also all paid an extra fee for "balconies". Upon arrival we found that these balconies were not... More

Hotel Isabella is a lovely small hotel. We had a Concert Tour of Sicily with 33 students and 10 adults. The staff was professional and helpful in every aspect of our stay. Yes, the rooms and bathrooms are small but clean and neat. The Hotel is in the middle of the Main thoroughfare and convenient to shopping and restaurants. Thank... More
