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.
We loved staying at Nelly's Guesthouse.The room is large and clean with a balcony that overlooks the coastline ... just like in the Amalfi. The location is very close to the main street and Giuseppe even helped us park our car in his driveway. Parking can be difficult so it was great to be able to park on the property....though we didn't need the car during our stay. Guiseppe was a wonderful host, lots of local information and recommendations. His mum Nelly was always wanting to fuss over us. While she doesn't speak English we managed to communicate on most issues, like what we would like for breakfast. Breakfast on the balcony is amazing...even in Winter!
We had a wonderful time at Nelly's Guest house, 3 nights. Giuseppe was very responsive to our e-mails, we got a map of the town major sites and recommendations about the area. During our stay we had more contact with Nelly, Giuseppe's mother who lives at the apartment. Nelly,took care of our breakfast every morning and encouraged us to feel as at home. The room, was very clean, there is direct access to the balcony with a wonderful view. Breakfast was very good, and plenty. Nelly is very attentive and wanted us to enjoy as much as possible her home.
The house is great, in good location and with an amazing terrase looking at the sea where you have breakfast. Giuseppes mother is a lovely person that made us feel at home every second and with such wonderful smile that we were sad to leave.
Taormina was even at the end of september,that is when we went, full of tourists, but i have to admit that the town is beautiful and full of charm (apart from the fancy shops that are excessive).
Nelly's Guest house was perfect for my ten night stay in Taormina. The room is large and very clean with a great view of the sea. A small refrigerator and Wi-Fi are two great conveniences. The location is quiet, yet very close to the main street of Taormina and a short walk to the cable car to the beach. Giuseppe was an excellent host, going out of his way to make sure I enjoyed my stay in this lovely town. His mother, Nelly, is very sweet and although she only speaks Italian, we were able to communicate and I became fond of her over my ten day stay.
I would not hesitate to recommend this guest house or this town to anyone.
Nelly's Guest House has a great location, just steps away from the city gate and the main street in Taormina which has tons of restaurants and shopping. Giuseppe met us at the bus station and graciously showed us some of the sites of Taormina by car, which was much appreciated because we would have never have gotten there by foot or even known to go to those lookout points, which included a historic church. The house itself has a great ocean view and Giuseppe's mom is super cute. We would definitely recommend this place for anyone visiting Taormina!
Giuseppe and his mother were lovely hosts. They welcomed us with open arms and were extremely hospitable. We got great advice on what to do and what restaurants to go to. The room was clean with a beautiful sea view from the patio. Thank you so much for a pleasant stay in Taormina. Ciao!!
Nelly's Guesthouse was fantastic. The room is extremely clean and the views are superb. Giuseppe and Nelly really took great care of us and were incredibly helpful with recommending restaurants and places to visit. It's also quite conveniently located in walking distance to the center of town. I highly recommend staying at Nelly's on your next visit.
We had a wonderful stay at Nelly's Guest House! Firstly, Giuseppe is extremely friendly and an excellent host - he made us feel truly at home. Secondly, the location is perfect. The main road in Taormina can be quite busy and crowded with tourists (especially in the summer), and with this guest house being just a 5 min walk away from the main street, it makes it a bit quieter and more chilled out - which is good! Finally, the view from our balcony was superb, especially with breakfast served, overlooking the mountains and the clear blue sky. Thank you so much to Giuseppe (and Nelly!) - we would certainly recommend staying here.
Really enjoyed out stay. Giuseppe was very welcoming and gave lots of great advice. We came by car and managed to park really easily in Giuseppe drive. Too short a stay
Da Giuseppe e Nelly ci siamo sentiti a casa nostra !
Una camera pulita, una terrazza con un punto di vista incredibile.
La loro casa è proprio vicino al centro. Nelly è una donna che ci da consigli, che ci porta la colazione la mattina. E stato un piacere essere al suo contatto.
Giuseppe, suo filgio è stato una persona accogliante, che ci aiuta e da consigli per andare nella città. Prendono cura dei loro invitati.
Non siamo stati delusi. E un posto che raccomandiamo !
