I would stay again.
The room was adequate for my needs, the bathroom was small but clean. The service at the hotel was excellent, from arrival to checkout. The daily set thee course menu in the evening was exceptional value at €22.00. The buffet breakfast is the best I’ve seen so far on my trip to Italy. The main town is around ten minutes away and the cable car to the beach is only five minutes. The pool area was always clean with a lifeguard in attendance. A nice relaxing hotel with good wifi.

Fair 4.0
Mixed bag, not that great!
Not really a 4 star, more like a 3 star. Walls are very thin so you hear absolutely everything next door and above you. This means sleep is not great. Room is very dark so you need the lights on all the time. Service at reception and dining area ok, not brilliant. Pool is lovely and there are plenty of sun loungers. The person working at the pool/pool bar is not always there which is annoying and means sometimes you can’t get a towel or a drink. Location is good for the Main Street, lots of restaurants. There are a lot of hills and steps so something to think about when booking.

Poor 2.0
Dated hotel
Good pool but that’s about it. You have to pay for parking which doesn’t seem right. The room was tragic, no working air con and it did not seem safe. Very much a Brit hotel and would look elsewhere next time.

Exceptional 10.0
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!
