We stayed at Hotel Isola Bella for three nights, Reception staff were very friendly and helpful, breakfast was included and one of the nicest so far in Italy. 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

we stayed here after wanting a cheap getaway, and though the room is basic, we did pay extra for a sea view, and you do get one, and its amazing. we had a small balcony which was fine, but what makes this hotel amazing is the pool and view out back. the restaurant next door run by santino and wife...

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

The view from the hotel is spectacular. It's vital to get a room with a sea view in this hotel. The location is really good as it is close to the beach. This is great if you like to alternate between your swimming pool and the beach. The downside is that there isn't a great choice of restaurants nearby without... More

I don't think you could pick a hotel with a better view in this area. It's really beautiful. Over looking Isola Bella and minutes away from the beach. You couldn't get a better location for a relaxing holiday. As other reviewers mentioned, the hotel could do with an update, however it's extremely clean and the staff are very friendly and... More
