The Isola Bella Hotel is located in an amazing place, right in front the Isola Bella. My room was airy and comfortable. The hotel has a big swimming pool, with views to the sea. The breakfast is delicious. There was even freshly squeezed orange juice. Yummy pies and fresh bread. The staff was very friendly. Vera, Marilena and the guy... More

I stayed in this hotel at the end of April 2015. Before booking I did not have a clear idea of the local area apart from knowing that it was a popular tourist destination in Sicily. On arrival we realised that the main area of Taormina is situated high above sea level and not really visible from sea level. However... More

Very basic hotel room. Stayed there end of June bed and breakfast basis. Buffet breakfast is quite good for italian standards. The view from our balcony was unique, much worth the little extra we paid instead of an inside room. Room cleaned daily. We did not encounter any particular problems.

This is a 3 star hotel which is spotlessly clean and just happens to be in one of the best locations of Taormina. The view from the balconies at the front is amazing - definitely worth upgrading if you can. There are restaurants and shops within walking distance and there is a shuttle van to the beach every morning. The... More

If you're arriving by train, you can take the bus to the hotel for about 2 Euros. It's a 10 minute bus ride. The buses run relatively frequent. You can access bus schedule on-line or thru the hotel. If you can't wait, you can cab it for about 10 Euros. It's a 5 minute cab ride. The views from the... 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
