We booked a standard double room, without balcony or sea view (the cheapest option). We were a bit worried to find that we were downstairs near staff rooms and under the breakfast room. However, it was fairly quiet and the room was large with good air-con and a sea view. The bathroom was a bit mouldy in places and there... More

It was well worth paying a little extra to book an executive room with a sea view. The room was spotless and spacious. On arrival, we were greeted with a bottle of Prosecco and a bowl of fruit. The hotel is hewn high into the cliffs above Taormina and the view from the balcony was breath-taking. The hotel is accessible... More

We stayed a week B&B in The Ariston a couple of weeks ago. B&B is perfect in my view to allow dinning out in the wonderful town and the equally delightful restaurants. Breakfast was adequate but on a couple of occasions we had to ask for tables to be set rather than do it ourselves. The pool area is nice... More

The room was clean and spacious (twin with balcony and sea view) the only problem with the room was the shower head, but you can live with that as most of everthing was excellent,including the views. The reception staff were welcoming and very friendly,nothing was too much trouble and they allways had time to help. The staff at breakfast and... More

Booked almost last minute, and really glad that we did! The hotel is placed in a spectacular position in Taormina, with glorious views in all directions. We had a room in the annex which was a really good size, complete with sofa and chairs, a super balcony with a view through palms and cactus of the sea. The breakfast is... More

Very nice place for holidays in Taormina. Well located, few steps away from the bus hub, 5 minutes walk to the cable car down to Isola Bella beach and the old center. Diverse and good breakfast, fresh orange juice and fruits available, Italian coffee too. Staff running around all the time to re-supply. Very clean. The service is excellent. Staff... More
