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

We were welcomed by friendly Meena who showed us to our room and around the guest house and also offered a complimentary drink which was welcomed after our long journey from Palermo. 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.

We loved our stay in Isoco guest house. We are three friends and we each had one room. Each of them was unique, but they were all fantastic. Michele was a great host, and pointed out many things to see and places to eat in Taormina - all of his suggestions were spot on. The breakfast was magnificent. I would... More

My partner and I booked this on a whim, and it really was serendipity to find this amazingly charming B&B in Taormina. Michele's charm and graciousness was outmatched only by his amazing breakfast! Fresh fruit, cereals, pastries, homemade cakes, eggs to order, cheese and meat plates...what a selection! Great fuel for a wonderful day of seeing Taormina. I cannot stress... More

Michele's warm welcome and his genuine concern for the wellbeing of his guests is refreshing. We stayed two nights in this guesthouse and were very impressed with its amenities, the view from our room and the multiple garden terraces. Michele makes fresh cakes for every breakfast, which is supplemented with a wide variety of goodies. You can't go wrong with... More

We had a wonderful three day stay. Michele is a great host and gave us several outstanding restaurant and sightseeing suggestions. His pistachio breakfast cake is to die for. The Guest House has wonderful views and is only a ten minute walk into the heart of Taormina.

Great location and stylish designer rooms. The owner is very knowledgeable and helpful. Nice to have the hot tub too. Some of the rooms are rather gay in decor but don't let that put you off. Handy parking in a public car park 5 mins walk away but he might be able to lend you a permit.

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
