“Basic Hotel Centrally Located”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 19, 2007

Hotel was undergoing repairs. Rooms were basic, airconditioned and spacious bathroom attached. All in all, you get what you paid for. Lifts were a bit dodgy, you need to switch lifts just to get to the 3rd floor! Breakfast was basic. Staff was helpful, even though some could not really communicate in English.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 15, 2006

If you have the misfortune to have to spend a night in Livorno, then you could do a lot worse than this hotel. If you're driving, as we were, then it's easy to find and they offer secure garage parking (which we would strongly recommend). The staff were helpful, the room was clean and adequate. We had to catch an early ferry the next day, but would say that unless you have a similar reason to be there you'd be much better off staying in another town eg Lucca - it's basically a port town with not a lot else going for it, and not very pleasant either apart from the canals and the old fort which are pretty. We had a nice meal in a nearby trattoria, Galileo, but elsewhere we got hassled a lot and most of the town felt pretty dodgy at night - if I'd been on my own I wouldn't have felt at all safe.

  • Liked — Clean, functional, good value for money, proximity to the port
  • Disliked — The town itself
  • Tips/Secrets — Avoid staying in Livorno unless you have to, in which case this is a good choice of hotel
  • Stayed November 2006, traveled as a couple

Ariston is a super little hotel in the centre of Livorno. ILivorno is 15 minutes by train from Pisa, and a much more exciting place to visit than Pisa, for a real taste of Italy.

The hotel is in an old building with a lot of real character and nice comfortable rooms. Air conditioned too.
