  • 10.0.Exceptional

    Hotel was great, nice large rooms and free champagne was a nice touch. The piano player in the bar, Giovanni, was excellent and fun to listen to. Huge breakfast. Very helpful with luggage. The only thing off was that the glass cups in our rooms were dirty, and not replaced from the previous guests. But otherwise very clean. We would love to come back.

    A nice hotel in a good location

    Ariston is a good hotel overall - my highlight is the very cool pool and pretty complete breakfast buffet. Location is good - 5-10 min from Taormina’s Main Street and conveniently access to beach cablecar. It’s worth the stay if you get a good deal like I did. Recommended!

    Dont eat there!

    Not a 4 stars hotel. I am ok with all these outdated staf in the room. Mostly i had issues with their restaurant dinner! I do expect better service for 4 star restaurant. Worst dinner I had in Sicily. I had to pour myself my wine . People around me , who came after me, left and I was still waiting for secondary. Ignorance. I had to talk to few people before I finally for some service there. Food wasnt good as well. Totally screwed up my evening. Eat in town!

    Nice hotel, but it is a hike up the hill to get there. Not n issue for us, but would have been tough on grandma and grandpa.

    Former greatness, now just worn down

    You can tell this hotel at one point we're a very nice and high end hotel. But now... The hotel is very worn down, and the interior is from the early 90s. Our room had clear signs of a water damage in the ceiling. The check in experience was flawless, however the check out was not. It took almost 30 minutes in queue for us to leave the key and pay the city tax... Not good enough. Breakfast was... Meh. A lot of stuff but breads were stale. Would not stay again.
