Historical Traveler Reviews Ariston Hotel Milan
Good value in great location
Hotel Ariston doesn't offer much in the way of luxury, but it's a solid *** in the heart of Milan. Pros: GREAT location, clean rooms, comfortable beds, helpful & pleasant staff, cheap (we paid EUR70/night). Cons: lots of street noise (we're used to it, but folks not used to sleeping with city sounds may find it distracting); breakfast is not "Italian" and is kind of pedestrian, but there was a lot of it; I didn't find the hotel to be any more eco-friendly than any other hotel, so no extra points here. Would consider staying here again on next visit to Milano.
Excellent value for money
I can only think the hotel has had a make-over since some of these reviews were written. The rooms were excellent, very clean, the bathroom and the bedroom were spotless, the bathroom was very modern and looked new. Once we'd worked out how to use the heating/air con the room can be whatever temperature you wanted.
For a 3-star hotel it is very good value for money probably one of the best 3-star hotels I've stayed in (& I've travelled a lot).
I would also add that the staff are very helpful and knowledgable, the breakfast is plentiful and tasty (& you can sit for ages!), and its in a good location. Definately book.
No tea / coffee facility in room
This hotel was clean but quite small, certainly not luxurious but staff very friendly and food very good. Mini Bar in room but no tea/coffee making facilities in room. Short walk or tram ride from centre. Would stay again.
A small but very friendly hotel. Its what you would expect from a 3 star. Set in a quiet location but only 5 minutes walk from the centre which comes alives a night. The piano bar is a great way to round off the day. We are going back again just for the food!
Excellent staff help and atentions
I booked it by expedia and found it over my expectations. Really good.
Not as bad as these reviews make out!
I booked this hotel without checking trip advisor - when I did I was disappointed to discover the hotel was not as great as the hotel web-site makes out. So when I arrived at the hotel I was pleasantly surprised - yes it wasn't the height of luxury, but it was clean, very central and the buffet breakfast was on par with other small European hotels. The hotel advertises itself as being 'environmentally friendly' but we didn't see much evidence of this. If this is the main reason for choosing this hotel you will be disappointed, otherwise if you want somewhere that is well priced and central, it's a good choice.
Not as adverstised
Hotel Ariston is simply a below-average hotel in good location. It's ecologically friendly/organic advertisements are more marketing than reality. They may have air purifiers, but lobby doors and many room window are open and smoking and pets are allowed. Their breakfast selection was vast but the only clearly organic products were a few pre-packaged cakes and possibly some fresh fruit. The sincere, helpful and friendly front desk and waitstaff would have made up for these shortcomings if the rooms would have actually been comfortable. Unfortunately, the beds had thin futon mattresses and even thinner pillows. This along with the high temperate and dry air made sleeping very uncomfortable.
Find another hotel!
Don't believe their website, its not what you are going to get. The air vents has got visable white dust stuck to it, the wooden floor with stains, bathroom cramped and old, taps/ fixtures and shower head stuck with scum. The shower so small that you couldn't turn. The sides of the closet doors doesn't match, ie. one is higher and one is lower. I wouldn't expect that to be called a european 3 star, I mean especially from how they present themselves on their site, I think its a total scam.

Sunday was our first cooking school in a beautiful palazzo which overlooked the Grand Canal. Our two chefs guided us through the making of Shrimp Gratin, Tagliolini Seafood, Sea Bass Potatoes and Black Olives and Coffee Chocolate Mousse. We then sat in the beautiful dining ...
Our final morning the bags were outside our room by 7:00 AM and down to breakfast at 7:15. The waiters were wearing white tuxedos this morning, but I left the camera in the room so no picture of them. We boarded the bus at 8:00 for one hour ride to the Milan airport, Malpensa Arpt-Milan. We arrived around 9:15 and proceeded to the passport check. Then ...

now being quite skilled on the Milan Metro we headed to the Brera area and the Art Gallery where many famous artists are exhibited. Caravaggio,Rubens, Van Dyck, Rembrandt, Raphael and Bellini to name a few.
A wander around this very flash area followed by lunch at a recommended restaurant, Obika. Great ...
... might as well get it here, and can use for maps if we need it.
On the bus again, and beginning to get a feeling for the place. Ron suggested getting off at Buenos Aires St, which Graham had recommended for shopping, and walking back to the hotel. That was a great suggestion, and I hope I took lots of nice photos. Unfortunately, haven't found any of the pairs of shoes I promised ...
... off with light and bubbly prosecco and then moved through the courses being impressed each step of the way. An impressive cured meat board and tomato mozzarella dish was our appetizer. This was followed up by tagliolini truffle pasta cooked to perfection and pomodora, a Tuscan favorite. Moving on with limited space left for anything else we shared Sea Bass over light salad. It was a priceless first dinner and a great start to our stay. We look forward to our days ...
