short stay in Taormina.
This hotel is conveniently located right by the bus terminal, and about 10 mins walk (very hilly!) to Taormina city center, so it was perfect for us. We arrived at Catania airport and took the direct bus from the airport here. The hotel has great view, however, we are not sure if it really is a 4 star hotel. The room we stayed at was quite basic. And we asked for a twin room (with two beds) specifically, turned out it was a king bed plus a sofa bed. We also stayed at the annex of the hotel that is a little further away from the main building of the hotel, which is not as convenient.

Three night stay in May
Lovely stay here for a few nights during our tour of Sicily. Hotel is well placed, an easy walk into the main town with lots of decent restaurants. Staff were friendly and helpful, room was clean and comfortable. Parking was available at a car park nearby the hotel at a cost of €20 per day.

Pleasant stay
Very pleasant hotel with kind staff. Unfortunately the furniture and amenities are getting dated and it is quite a walk uphill to the centre. If you don't mind the ealk then definetly a place to stay.

This was our third visit to the hotel and the service offered by the team was outstanding. The COVID crisis places many challenges on hotels but the team at the Ariston worked very hard to lessen the impact on guests. The service was personal and the staff weRe very friendly. We will be there again next year.

Overall good but beds in the economy room were VERY uncomfortable and the shower was terrible. The pool was good and the views were outstanding

8/10 Very good

The view was beautiful and the breakfast was excellent. Parking is very limited and the A/C in my room blew warm air even when I turned the thermostat down. I realize it may be a seasonal issue since it's November, but I was essentially on a ground floor and therefore couldn't leave my patio door open to cool the room.
