I stayed at this hotel in July 2011 having booked a coach trip through Leger Holidays. It was one of the worst experiences I have had in travelling abroad. The Hotel Ariston is old fashioned and drab and run more lilke a B & B than a hotel. They are short-staffed which does not help. We had paid extra for a double room when we saw the room it was a sinlge room with a double bed in it. It was dark, gloomy and old fashioned and did not look very clean. We complained and was given a room on an upper floor which was larger. This room was also old fashioned with two single beds pushed together. The water in the bath did not drain properly and the bathroom was very old fashioned and in need of decoration, as did the whole hotel for that matter. The food was awful and very small portions served. We had to eat out in restaurants because of this. If you did not get down for breakfast by 7.45 am at least, there was not much food left. The food trays of scambled eggs was not refilled. The bread was stale and any left over was put on the table for the evening meal which was mainly pasta every evening. If you asked for more food, you did not get it. There was no water on the table and if you wanted any you had to buy bottled water. Serving staff consisted of 3 people serving nearly 80 people.
Most of our coach party complained. Many said the air conditioning in their room did not work. Fortunately, ours did work, considering it was about 90 degrees farenheit outside.
I would not recommend this hotel to anyone.
