We stayed at Isoco Guesthouse for 4 night mid july and it was wonderful. The rooms were great, the balconies lovely and the breakfast perfect......I had the best omelet in all my life. All the terraces around the house and on the rooftop give you the most astonishing views of the sea and the mountains. I can highly recommend it... More

Set among three levels of gorgeous gardens, Michele is a warm, welcoming and informative host and our room was gorgeous, with everything we needed including a view of the sea. Wonderful base from which to explore and Michele can arrange transfers for you to visit a private beach, which I highly recommend. We loved Isoco.

I stayed at Isoco Guest House for 6 nights and it was one of the most memorable and comfortable places I've stayed while travelling. The host of this place is a very warm and good-hearted man who only wishes to make the experience the best it can be for all of his guests. I loved the open-air beds (on two... More

The guest house is nicely situated up the steps from a quiet street, not far from the Old Town. A lush and nice garden, yard, beautiful terrace with sun beds, Jacuzzi outdoors...yes...... The rooms were a bit small, they were in a very artistic style decorated, all very unique. The furnitures were a bit dated and their material was just... More

After all the glowing reviews and beautiful pictures we decided to stay six nights at the Isoco Guesthouse in early July, and while our expectations where very high, this amazing place exceeded them all. First of all, the location and view are amazing. You are only 5 walking minutes away from the pedestrian area and main sites of Taormina, and... More

Michele the owner was very friendly and helpful throught out, nothing was too much trouble... More

From the moment we arrived I was so glad to be in 'good hands' at the Isoco Guesthouse. Michele was so accommodating and helpful. The room perfectly suited our needs and was tastefully decorated. (Boticelli room) The bathroom door took a little getting used to from a logistical standpoint. We finally figured out that you only really need to 'lock'... More

What a fabulous place. A charming room in a stunning location with amazing views. An attentive but not overbearing owner. Everything has been thought of, from the free beach towel hire to the delicious snacks left on the pillows after the daily clean. Beautiful balconies with the surprise of a hot tub! Would definitely recommend.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
In Taormina the Isoco offers a better accomodation alternative to lodging compared to the usual overnight stay or long stay in a hotel or pensione. In fact each room is dedicated to a different artist, which makes them specially personalized and distinguishes them from the anonymous rooms of a Pensione or Hotel. Having just a few rooms, The Isoco also offers a friendly, familiar and welcoming atmosphere. ... more   less
