We enjoyed our stay at the guesthouse very much. We were warmly reserved even though we arrived at 23.30. The breakfast was creative and lovely, as was the staff. The rooms was clean and had everything we needed. Unfortunately we had to leave after a couple of days, because of a family emergency, and the staff was very helpfully with... More

My niece and I loved the Isoco Guesthouse. We could only stay one night and we were so disappointed to leave. We were charmed by all the little touches in our room and the common area that it took some initiative to get out and explore Taormina. The service was personal and mindful. We loved that the town was easily... More

The place is in a fantastic location. The atmosphere is very homy, every corner has a little thing to discover., the breakfast is memorable . Michele and Mina were so helpful with everything from places to visit to helping book tours. We wished we were still there. Thank you to both of you.

At Isoco Guesthouse, every room has been individually designed by an artist and has a private bathroom (though this is not ensuite and you need to cross the corridor to get there); we had a small balcony with beautiful views of the town and sea; the room was equipped with a small fridge and kettle; we found a small gift...

Our wonderful stay in beautiful Taormina was made even more memorable by Isoco Guesthouse. We were dazzled by the views, decor, service, and breakfasts. Michel & the staff graciously looked after us as tourists and made our entire stay as enjoyable as possible. We enthusiastically recommend this magical guesthouse and hope to return there someday soon.

helpful friendly owners. quite a steep climb with luggage, but being on the edge of town had its advantages - quiet, reduced the climb into castelmolo, good view, good value!

The room, decorated according Pierre and Gilles' artworks, is a breathe of fresh air regarding other equivalent hotels in Toarmina. The view with the sea and the hills is relaxing, yet urging you to discover the country and enjoy the beaches. Location is not far from the city center. For the beaches, you have to walk, but you can always... More

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
