About This Listing
The house is great, in good location and with an amazing terrase looking at the sea where you have breakfast.
Staying at Nelly's Guest House is a real pleasure, not only for its exquisite location, in the very heart of Taormina, just 200 meters from the Portal Messina, but also because you can reach it by strolling through the most historical, cultural and commercial area of our city. A familiar hospitality that a hotel cannot offer to you, together with the other wonderful City's ancients, make your stay in Taormina an unforgettable holiday. A Comfortable accommodation type bed and breakfast with a large 30 square meters terrace overlooking the Ionian sea.
From January 1, 2013 Taormina enforced a new tourist tax for visitors staying overnight.
€ 1 will be levied on the first five consecutive nights of any overnight stay paid from each guest.
Getting here is easy! By train: From the station you have to take the bus or taxi to the center. By car: coming from Messina to reach the A 18 motorway, Messina - Catania and exit at Taormina. Continue uphill to Taormina (3 km) until you reach the entrance of Porta Messina. Keep right and after the climb, turn immediately left and continue for a few hundred meters you will come to your destination. From Catania you always take the motorway A18 (Messina), and it always comes out in Taormina.
A few meters from the house there is the public parking "Lumbi" where you leave your car. The ticket price includes the shuttle service to and from the town. It is open 24 hours, even on holidays.
My boyfriend and I absolutely loved staying at Nelly & Guiseppe's. Nelly is the most wonderful person and she completed our Sicilian trip! We loved staying in a room in her home, having breakfast on the gorgeous terrace over looking Taormina and Italy on the horizon. It was great to chat to her and get a feel of authentic Taormina through her. We give her 5 stars plus more! Guiseppe was also extremely helpful, he sat us down on day 1 and talked us through all the best spots in the town. Along with Nelly, he provided a delicious breakfast for us every morning, it was the most wonderful way to start the day. We recommend Nelly's Guest House whole heartedly!
Giuseppe Alfonso was a wonderful host. His place was hard to find, and he insisted on driving my husband (on his motorbike) back to where we had parked the car and parking the car for us in his gated driveway. The ensuite bedroom was roomy and quiet with a lovely view of the ocean from the balcony. The breakfast was simple, but adequate, and our request for yogurt was accomodated. The B&B is within a 3 minute walk of the old city, but in a neighborhood. Giuseppe Alfonso is a real foodie. His recommendations for dinner resulted in 2 of our best meals in Sicily. His mother, Nelly, is charming.
Guiseppe en zijn moeder zijn zeer gastvrij. Wij kregen een mooie, schone, grote kamer met uitzicht op zee. Het perfecte ontbijt werd geserveerd op het balkon voor de kamer. De foto laat precies zien hoe het is. Guiseppe kent alle bezienwaardigheden in de buurt en geeft goede tips over wat je kunt bezoeken en wat de goede volgorde is. Perfecte plek om Taormina te ontdekken!
Unfortunately due to bad weather on Stromboli island I could not join Giuseppe House. Giuseppe showed a good understanding of our situation and did his best to help.
Guiseppe kindly picked us up at the train station and gave us a good introduction to Taormina which was very helpful.
Our room was as described and had a lovely terrace where we ate breakfast each morning and where we had a view of the ocean.
Guiseppe speaks good English. His mother, Nelly does not but she is charming and hospitable and manages to get her ideas across most of the time.
Nelly's is centrally located to the old town and its attractions and quiet and we would stay there again.
Nelly's Guest House was exactly what myself and my family needed. It was a quaint getaway from our usual busy life. It is in a great location and everything is within a 4-5 minute walk (restaurants, main sightseeing locations, and anything else you will want to see in Taormina). The room itself was clean, spacious, and in great condition. The view off the balcony was fantastic and it is where breakfast is served each morning. I brought my 4 month old baby, and they had a pack-and-play set up in the room for when I got there. They are also pet friendly, and parking can either be in front of the house or down the road in a parking lot if you have a bigger car like I have. All in all, a very good weekend and I could not have asked for anything more.
