This is a gem! Giuseppe was the most kind host and gave us great tips, while the location of the guest house is perfect for a visit in Taormina. Giuseppe even helped us with the parking of the car. The room was simple but clean, we loved it here.

We were thrilled when we found Nelly's Guest House, in a brilliant location just walking distance from the main pedestrian area. Incredible views over to Italy from the balcony where you have tea/breakfast. Giuseppe could not have been kinder and more welcoming. Why would you stay in an expensive hotel when this little gem is available.

You feel you are in an eagle's nest high above the bay,but tucked away from the maddening crowds.It is nice to feel part of a neighbourhood,to be greeted by shop keepers, the fruit & vege van & the couple of very local restaurants yet to be so close to Portal Messina. Fresh rolls for breakfast & the chance to chat... More

Loved the location of this 2 room guest house just a 5 minute walk from the heart of Taormina. Away from the noise of the center, but with a spectacular view of the sea from your room and from the breakfast terrace outside your door. Room was exceptionally large with private bath....not fancy, but clean and comfy. Nelly is a... More

My hubby and I stayed here for 3 nights and extended for a further night because we loved it so much. Taormina is a beautiful place (driving can be a little hair raising...)

The place has a great view of the sea and you can have breakfast in the balcony. It is a very short walk to the center of Taormina and there is free parking nearby. But the highlight of the place is Nelly herself! She is a sweet, funny, friendly old lady that made us feel at home immediately. Definitely recommended!

We stayed at Nelly's Guest House for 3 nights this August, and thought it was a very convenient and nice place in Taormina. Location- very convenient. 1 minute walk to the main street, 3 minute walk to the funiculeur to the beach, 5 minute walk to the bus staton. The house is on a quiet street, near a supermarket (a...

Nelly's Guest House is a very nice B&B, possibly with the greatest view of Taormina. The owner is the sweetest lady ever, who will do anything to make you feel at home - like an italian grandma.

Nelly and her son Giuseppe provide a very comfortable room with a gorgeous view. The B&B is so conveniently located in the town, close to all the attractions. Lovely breakfast and great conversations with Nelly (using our very very limited Italian) where we learned about the town, who has lived and visited there and its history. Giuseppe, whose English is... More
