A lovely guest house. Very nice, spacious rooms, with balconies. The most stunning view over the bay from just about everywhere in the hotel. Fantastically helpful owner who is not too intrusive. Great location. Beautiful terraces with sunbeds by day and blankets by night. An unexpected hot tub! Wonderful little unexpected extras like the snack left on our pillow after the daily room clean. Free beach towel hire. Would 100% recommend.

General public with particular welcome to male gays. As mature travelers with some mobility issues we did not realize beforehand that there were no elevators. We were able to manage but it may have impacted our decision to book. We loved the owner and his staff as well as making great friends with other guests there due to the round table for breakfast in the morning. The breakfasts were superb!

Staying at Isoco Guest House was a wonderful experience. Michele caters for your every need with great attention to detail.A kettle to make a hot drink, a fridge to keep you wine cool, sitting out on the balcony or in the garden enjoying views over the sea.It's all delightful. If your feeling stressed and you need to chill this is the perfect place to stay.The bathroom is opposite the room but for your use only and not a problem. Lovely Sebastian makes a wonderful breakfast.

Six night stay in Taormina was made more enjoyable by the location of the hotel and the friendliness of the staff. We had space to do our own thing and sometimes exclusive use of the public areas. The view from the terrace was amazing and the attention to detail was impressive. The four larger rooms shared two bathrooms, the smaller Herb Ritts Room had its own ensuite. Our gracious host, Michele, went out of his way to explain the merits of Isoco and Taormina and made our stay memorable. The daily breakfast/brunch served on the terrace was another highlight.

It was unforgetable.Thanks to the owner, Michele,we found the hotel in first try.He waited for us and welcomed us even at 11hours pm (traffic jams on the way) and not just that - he provide us with so many useful inforamtion about Taormina and Sicily that aou trip was unforgetable. The hotel is very very good and clean and we felt very welcomed.Though maybe Michele should work something on sound-isolation (probably just a few things on the door), since I heard almost everybody going from his room and talking to his roommate :-))

Der Aufenthalt war sehr angenehm. Die Toiletten /Duschen waren in einem "einfachen", das Zimmer in einem guten Zustand. Schön wäre es gewesen, wenn man schon im Vorfeld über die Parksituation in Taormina und anfallende Kosten aufgeklärt worden wäre.

This was our best night stay in Italy! Micheale was wonderful. He helped with places to go, would make any food you wanted to order. Each room was deacorated to a artists theme. The view overlooking the coast and sea from our room was spectatular. I believe he speaks at least five languages. It was a little walk from the bus stop to the Isoco but well worth the walk!

Great place - and particularly nice host, Michele who was helpful and warm. Had free internet, which was a plus. Incredible view, and close to everything. Lovely garden as well/ A bit hard to find - took us 2 hours - the map on the site is not very helpful. Had to follow some kind gentleman in his car - else we would have never found it. As in most small Italian tourist towns, parking and driving in town is not easy. Park somewhere and walk/climb. Everything is accessible on foot.

The biggest surprise was that the guest house excels in catering for the 'gay' market. The first time we realised this was when we arrived and were shown our clean, tidy and well decorated rooms and saw that the walls were adorned with male nude art. Not really a family venue - at least not for the average family. The location is good and the owner friendly and helpful. Ideal spot if your penchant leans that way - but I and my family will not be returning.

The guesthouse is a very warm and welcoming place - mainly due to its owner Michele. He was a perfect host for our time at his guesthouse. He speaks a lot of different languages and has a lot of tips to offer (restaurants, bars, shopping, beaches ...). The rooms may be a little the small but the garden is a wonderful resort of piece during the hot time of the day

Excellent guest house, very clean. Being a guest house don't expect too many extras - e.g. breakfast is an additional cost and late in the morning should you want it. The house is close enough to town anyway, so it really isn't a problem. You should also note that even though the information on this site states that credit cards are welcome, they aren't so you need to pay cash. Also there is no bar as stated (but this wasn't expected anyway). A final point... if you have heavy bags be prepared - the entrance to the house is up a good few stairs so travel as light as possible! Overall, I would recommend this guest house as we had an excellent time there - the location and views are superb and the house offers good value for money! Will we go back? Almost certainly!!

The guest house is almost in the very town center within a walkable distance from every touristic spot AND it's in a quiet street overlooking the beautifull coast. The owner has lived for more than 10 years in Germany and speaks an excellant German. He was extremely attentive and helped us making the best of our stay in Taormina. Breakfast is served in a beautifull garden and parking is no problem.

Price could be discounted outside high season. Price high compared to other cities visited in Sicily but seems to be a good price for Taormina. The owner Michele is really great and will help you with anything.
