Good Place to Stay a NightPosted 26/11/2013
Location: Can walk to the Duomo in 5 to 10 mins
In terms of convenience, Ariston is a bit far from the nearest subway station. It's better to take the tram which has a stop right out of the hotel entrance. Location-wise, it is fairly accessible to the Duomo and St Ambrogio Basilica.

Perfect position, everything we could wantPosted 29/09/2013
Pros: Modern, spotless, furniture and fittings, in bedroom, bathroom and public rooms; helpful staff; central position; apparently safe walk to hotel.
Cons: Freshly-made coffee, freshly-squeezed orange juice, and tastier, warm croissants - but if all these were done the price would have to increase!
Location: Really good location - walkable to Duomo, Last Supper, Art Galleries, Castle, La Scala, shops... and trams right outside if feet ache!
This hotel was recommended in the Rough Guide so when there was just one room available for our dates, at short notice. I snapped it up - and we were glad we did. Yes, it lacks a bit of character but the upside of that is that the facilities and furnishings are very modern, and spotless. And yes, it's on a main road and is a bit noisy from the trams - but the obvious upside of that is that the trams are very close. However, the best thing is the position, and it isn't necessary to use public transport at all for the main sights. The rooms are a bit small, but the price is very reasonable for a city-centre hotel. The staff are very helpful and the breakfast buffet is varied and served in a very pleasant room, though our only slight quibble is that the coffee, orange juice and croissants are are usually better in Italian restaurants (but again, it's reasonably priced). The hotel doesn't do evening meals, but there is a superb restaurant next door that does - we went there for each of our five evenings! There is also, unusually for a city-centre 3-star hotel we think, a very pleasant bar. There is a charge for wifi but at least one nearby café has free wifi.

Very good hotelPosted 05/08/2013
Pros: location, clean and price
Location: In centre - excellent
The hotel is modern and though it does not have much character, its location near the Duomo and central facilities (eg subway) makes it a very useful base. The rooms are air-conditioned and spotless. Breakfast was provided and was very reasonable. A good pl;ace to stay. Good value for money.

Excellent location, good amenities.Posted 22/06/2013 on Hotels.com
Hotel Ariston is a ten-to-fifteen minute walk from Piazza del Duomo, and not much further from the Navigli. We were pleased to find a good hotel at a reasonable price this close to the places we wanted to go. Our room was big enough to be comfortable for a four-day stay. Bed was comfortable and everything worked - including the air conditioning which was important in very warm weather. The breakfast buffet was ok, pretty standard for hotels we visited on this trip. Staff at the desk were friendly and helpful, and gave us a restaurant recommendation that was useful. Housekeeping was fine and we had no complaints about cleanliness, There's a computer in the lobby but a charge of 5 Euros to use it - we decilned. That seemed excessive. I would stay there again.

A good city centre hotelPosted 03/06/2013
Pros: Central location. Well maintained and clean hotel.
Location: It is five minutes walk from the Duomo.
The Hotel Ariston is conveniently located in the centre of Milan, only a few minutes walk from the Duomo. The bedroom was well decorated and clean. The buffet breakfast was good, with plenty of choice. The staff were pleasant and very helpful.

Good find, value for moneyPosted 28/05/2013
Location was good, 5 minutes from Duomo, trams right iutside. Reception staff were professional, staff at breakfast were very friendly. Room on the front was a little noisy if you are a light sleeper ask for a room at the back of the hotel.

Great Location!Posted 27/05/2013
Pros: breakfast! Nice spread and cheerful waiter who brightens up your morning
Cons: The decor. The hotel is little old, somewhat in need for a refurbishment
Location: Superb! Not too near to City Center which is good. away from the noise. Definitely a comfortable walking distrance though.
Wifi isn't free but available at a minimal cost, 5 Euro for unlimited usuage. That was not made known to us at the first instance though. It was only the second time when we asked for wifi, then were we given the option. Very accessible to central but dinner in the evening could be a problem. Most eateries in the vicinity close by 8pm. A little old, rooms a bit small. Overall adequate.

Friendly hotel with nice staff and good breakfast for beeing in Italy. The rooms are clean but not very modern. The best of everything is the location. Close to Navigli witjh all the restaurant and coffeshops and just a 5 min walk to the Doume.
