We really enjoyed our recent week's stay at this somewhat unusual hotel. The position- half way down the cliffe between Taormina & the coast is fascinating but makes for obvious difficulties if negotiating steps is a problem. The pool (lovely) can only be reached via a rather steep flight & similarly the beach (& little island), though looking so near,is... More

This hotel is located on the coast road. Parking was easy on the street, and there was an elevator up to the lobby. Room rates in April were very cheap and we took back singles as a result. The bathroom was tiny, the smallest shower and toilet space I've ever seen, with the shaving light attached to the mirror. Otherwise... More

This was a beautiful hotel. The view, from my balcony, of Isola Bella (a small island) and the ocean were great. The staff was helpful and polite. The breakfast buffet was great. It was in a big dinning room with an ocean view. Also you could eat on the patio.

Views are great, room needs an upgrade, bathroom small in particular the shower over bath. Lots of noise of a night from the street below and the train which is rather close... More

Stayed for for night during our trip around Sicily in March/April. Ok service, but the hotel is in deep need of a serious upgrade. Lots of noise from outside the room and from the floor downstairs of the reception and breakfast area, like they are rearranging the whole floor or something. Cold, old and shabby furniture, lots of rust in... More

I had my eye on Hotel Villa Schuler and thought it looked absolutely amazing but gutwretchingly expensive and it was with great reluctance that I pulled in my horns and booked the fabulously located but poorly reviewed Hotel Isola Bella. It was one decision that really paid off as we LOVED the Hotel Isola Bella, the wonderful location and the... More

Good stay with a great view of Isola Bella. Only a short walk to the beach and some local restaurants and shops. Thought the hotel was pretty good and staff also. I got a single room so it was compact but found the shower space to be extremely small. The only other thing was going to Taormina City center you... More

I was pleasantly surprised by this Hotel - the single room was very small but all I needed and what a view! stunning! The staff were friendly, polite and ever helpful. There was no parking as such but after a short wait managed to park just up the road...it's all about timing! Breakfast was good for Sicily with a wide... More
