very clean basic hotel old world charm. booked a standard room big mistake as it looked onto a wall at the back and not the pool ! so upgraded to sea view and wow what a difference so go for sea view well worth the extra expense. Although the hotel could do with some TLC the staff are so helpful... More

This is a really lovely hotel to stay in. The rooms are comfortable, with good beds and a reasonable sized bathroom. The whole room area was clean and large enough for our needs. Public areas in the hotel were all pleasant, clean and airy. The breakfasts were really very good indeed, leaning heavily towards sweet items as is usual in... More

My partner and I stayed here in April 2015. We were part of a group from our hometown wine shop. Of all the places we stayed in Sicily this had the best view. Overlooking the sea and the Grotto. The good. Great location for our day trips and walking around. Easy to get up to the main part of town... More

If you haven't booked a sea view room - upgrade immediately, the view across to Isola Bella and the grotto is absolutely stunning, you can sit on your balcony for hours just enjoying the scenery. The staff are terrific, especially Francesco. The rooms are spacious but the bathrooms could do with re-vamping, the shower is very small. The location is... More

The hotel overlooks the ocean and is opposite the Isola Bella, which contains the famous Blue Grotto. Many restaurants and pubs within walking distance and close to the cable way that lifts you to Taormina town. Also on the SAT bus-route for many stunning day tours. Lovely swimming pool at the rear of the premises. Free WiFi vouchers available at... More

I just came home from a few days of vacation in Taormina. Hotel Isola Bella has two strong points: the receptionists who are very helpful, they all speak English and they are very kind and the fantastic view to Isola Bella (you must book a room with sea view- I had room 89). The room has a reasonable size and... More

This was my first stay at Hotel Isola Bella , Sicily. Hotel is very nice,good breakfast, rooms are good size and very clean and welcoming, but the absolute main reason to stay is Isola Bella sitting just off shore right in front of the hotel.I stayed in room 65 with stunning views of the sea and coastline and of course...

I could view Isola Bella forfeit directly outside my girl room. Transportationrtation was not as easy I thought it would be. To go barely two miles from birth to train station the taxi was 10 euros. Very touristy. My single room was very small, especially the shower. However the staff person, Francesco was very nice and knowledgeable, speaking English as... More
