    the views were great and the staff were friendly and helpful.

    i booked a double room early and my room was a standard hotel room with a small balcony facing a rock wall. my friend who booked a single room last minute was given a superior double room with a reception area, great views and courtyard.

    Everything, especially welcome fruits and champagne :) Breakfasts are very good. And location is just perfect, too.

  • Group of friends

    the dinner for 12 eur per person was just perfect

    parking places are limited to only 6, but the receptionist gave us a tourist pass to park on the public parking just next to the hotel for 50EUR refundable deposit which was quite ok :) the jakuzzi was not working, the water was too cold; we were in a room not in the main building of the hotel and the sea view which costed 60eur more was not actually sea view, but at least it was very calm and peaceful

    The reception staff was brilliant, very helpful. The room had a complimentary fruit basket.

    No parking space near the hotel. The hotel only had 5 parking spaces so we had to go to a multi storey parking garage.

  • Older travelers
    7.8

    The view from the rooms at the front of the Hotel, the private grounds and swimming pool, availability of parking 5 minutes walk to the center of Taormina

    The view of a wall from the rooms at the back of the hotel, 80 steps from the parking lot to the lobby if the elevator is out of order the tour groups at breakfast

  • Older travelers
    8.8

    Hotel staff were friendly and the location was perfect. The scenery was wonderful as was the hotel grounds. The room was clean.

    Room decor was dated and some of the furniture was stained (Carpet and soft furniture chairs). The walls were very thin - you could hear showers in orther rooms and voices.

  • Group of friends
    9.2

    Extremely helpful and friendly staff. Stunning location and great food available at every meal.

    Bedroom carpet needed a little attention.

    The Ariston does not meet the four star status it purports to be. The location is extremely difficult to reach by car, Once there we found many physical challenges of stairs and distances within this rambling, aging structure. The bidet in the room did not function and the advertised air conditioning was not yet available. These were extremely important considerations for my traveling companion whose health requires both. The off site parking was not convenient, the WiFi access was limited, the food was mediocre- a travesty in Italy. The engaging and charming young man at the reception desk did try to be helpful, but generally the staff was ineffective. We checked out after the first night .I would not recommend this hotel to anyone.

    See above The Ariston was our lowest point and greatest dissappointment in an otherwise extraordinary two week experience in Sicily.

    Buffet breakfast was excellent and staff knowledgeable of the local area.

    Need to advertise the steps and steep incline to the hotel.

    the staff ,the gentleman who played the piano each night,( he was very good),and the hotel it self

    Lovely pool though and a five minute walk from the centre of the town. Hotel located right beside bus stop and near cable car. Room cleaned everyday. Fabulous views. Had a small baby with us. Delighted that there was tea/coffee facilities for making bottles.

    Had ants in room first day but changed room next morning. Not a good location if you have a buggy or if you have difficulty walking as there are lots of steps up to get to the reception of the hotel.
