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.

... sun for tbe most part. The mountain road was predominantly downhill but there were a few 'bonus' climbs before the big drop down to Fornovo di Tara. Our breakfast was pretty marginal at the overnight place so we had a food stop at Fornovo. After that it was onto more ordinary busy roads for most of the day. From Fornovo the route has been fairly flat so it has been reasonably easy ...
... Milan in the 19th century. It is now home to a series of museums and art collections. We passed through the central courtyard to and wandered through the extensive Parco Sempione, stopping to get up close to some local wildlife. Afterwards we headed back into the retail district for a spot of shopping before mixing it with the rush hour traffic on the trip back past Lago di Como to Morbegno.
... girls and we all head down again. After walking about 50 metres down he looks up and can see the castle walls about 50 metres away. We are so close and all,that extra uphill was not needed. We continue down looking for the turnoff to the castle. We reach the main road without finding any road that goes that way. Seems odd. Then we read the sign again to discover to our horror that the sign says the castle is not open to the public ( in Italian ). So ...
... in passion and history. Our seats overlook the old banked circuit and across the track there is a camping ground where fans get the best view by climbing onto the roofs of their caravans and camper vans. Best of all, they don't have to do the daily battle to get into and out of the track! There is no doubt the Tisfosi are the most passionate of all race fans - the Collingwood or Man U of motor sport fans. ...
... to finish and you can really see why. This church was massive and the detail was overwhelming. It has made it to my second favourite church in europe (second to the segrada familiar). After the church we walked about the main square through this massive archway to the mall and eventually to a restaurant for lunch, prosecco and a chat. Fed again, we headed to the snowboard shop to get Yulia some boots. Unfortunately this branch of ...
