It looks like this hotel has been in the family for years (we didn't ask). You find a warm welcome and a nice pool in this hotel with different garden terraces and it's private free parking area. The hotelroom we stayed in was quite small, but with a splendid (though small) bathroom. Perfect shower. The balcony however was huge compared to the room and had a nice sea/mountain view. The hotelroom looks like you step into a late 70ies movie, but everything is available. The interior design of the whole hotel is a bit of a mixture of styles, but it has it's charm. Breakfast was nice as well with a good selection of (fresh) fruit, cheese, yoghurt, etc. It's a 10/15 min walk to the beach. Imperia is very nice to go to with a nice harbor&cafes. There is no air conditioning, but the fan on the ceiling makes up for that. We stayed here for two nights and that was quite ok, a little bit longer would do also, but two weeks wouldn't be convenient because of the size of the room. Even tough you don't spend to much time there.
The hotel was clean. The staff friendly and helpful and the breakfast was good. The rooms could benefit from air conditioning
The staff was kind and polite and very helpful. We liked the pool and the vicinity to the beach and the pomenade. Food was excellent and the room was clean. Under an health and safety aspect the room and the hotel in general could benefit with some small changes. In room 345 there is a metal panel in the bathroom that is not fully secured to the wall and so dangerous to small children. There is also a plug behind the wardrobe that is not fully secured and very dusty. The staircase in the hotel has a carpet that in places is not fully secured to the steps.
Relaxed, swam, sightseeing
the amability of the staff
cozy atmosphere. excellent location and easy to find. near the beach and other amenities. dinner was very good.
All of the staff were extremely helpful, polite and friendly, even though we did not speak italian.
this is a nice hotel which is clean and comfortable but would benefit from air conditioning in the bedrooms, the guests were mainly more mature and this meant it was very quiet and relaxing. the staff are helpful and very friendly and the evening meal was good, especially on the "special liguiran night". it is close to the beach and a few shops, cafes etc but not much to do in the immediate area.
Friendly and helpful staff Discribed as central quiet location. It was anything but that. Central yes, but quiet no. Hotel is on main road through town and across from train track. Not quite at all. Should have stayed 3 nights, left after one.

The breakfast Room too small
private beach facility, buffet breakfast, pool area, balcony
Good room if a little small - excellent view of sea/private beach. Good facilities - lovely dining room/breakfast terrace and private beach facilities. Good food - would have liked the option to book half board. Too far from centre of Diano Marina - long walk on a busy road to get into the town centre.
the pool area really set this hotel apart from others on the beach. Hotel was ok, expected a little more but was comfortable. Breakfast provided in cost of room was excellent. We arrived at 7pm and the pool and beach area was closed. We expected to be able to have a quick swim after travelling all day so that was disappointing. Also, this hotel is not inexpensive, but they still charge 3.5 euro per pool towel/day/person which I think is not right if you're a guest, as well they charge to lay on a chair on the beach. Felt like we were always being asked for additional money.
Great staff! Very friendly & nice people! Great location! Hotel parking included!
Private car park, right next to the beach, reasonable access Hotel is at the sad end of Diano Marina. Our deluxe room with ful sea view was very small
The seaview from our bedroom (we booked a superior with full seaview) was superb. The hotel had a good swimming pool and garden beside the pool. The breakfast was very nice and there was a good choice of quality products. The a la carte restaurant was good. The bedrooms themselves were disappointing. Our superior room was very small and we spent one night in Suite 504 which had a very very limited seaview over the rooftops! Also you have to pay €3.50 per person per day if you wish to hire towels for around the pool/beach.
Very nice Hotel with excellent service
The hotel was well positioned next to the beach and just far enough out of town to be quiet. The staff were very helpful and the room we had was just right. Breakfast was very good and the pool area nice and relaxing. The only real gripe is that when staying in a 4 star hotel and paying a fairly high price you do not expect to have to pay extra for sunbeds and beach towels on the hotels own private beach. At €3.50 for a towel and €19.00 for a sunbed per day this can soon add up. A beach chair and parasol is included in the hotel rate and the sunbeds around the pool are free.
Really helpful staff, very clean, fantastic stay.
Friendliness of the staff, terrace on the 5th floor Location: it was in the city centre, whilst the photos on the web made me think it was in a green area with a big park. I would have expected a car parking free of charge.
Service, continental breakfast Perfectible sound-proofing
The staff is nice and able to speak english or french.
You need a clock in the room.
Very nice placement, good price, wonderful confort. Average breakfast.
Comfortable room Lack of restaurant
I have stayed at this hotel quite a many times and it is the best hotel in Imperia.
We have stayed for 1 night just to be near Marina De San Lorenzio. Rooms was modern enough, clean and spacious. Breakfast was so sad - limited amout to choose. No omlet or eggs. No fresh juces. In other words - just basic breacfast without any hot dishes at all.
Comfortable clean room, tv and internet Breakfast a little disappointing
New hotel, excellent value for money. Staff were helpful but not very cheerful. Room quite small for a 4 star hotel. Fair walk into town and to restaurants.
Good location overpriced, air conditioning in room is not turned on until June
Owners are kind and the place is very well mantained and nice and peaceful. Heater not adequate during the night, it will be probably better from April onward
Good for summer but we whent on winter First of all the double bed was a matrimonial bed placed toghether. It was very poor the fact that the personal turned of the heat at night after 12. The shower was very small and it flooded everithing even the room. A disaster for a 3 star hotel
Nice outside area by the pool Bad breakfast and poor service from the staff. Extrimely small showerbox, just for children and skinny people. Not wifi internet
Nice small cosy hotel with swimming pool.
Hotel was perfectly nice but we were on the third floor with no hot water evening or morning.This obviously affected how we felt about our stay in this this very charming hotel. We had a good-sized balcony overlooking the pool area.
I liked how nice the rooms was.Staff was friendly and the service was good. The matress could have been a little softer. Anything else great.
Swimming and position breakfast poor
Swimming pool, bar for drinks and coffee at reasonable prices. Bikes for rent Breakfast was poor. Old or not tasty bread (hard to come by in Italy), lousy coffee, hardly any choice in jams, or meat, or cheese. We can't believe it is because of the budget, while it is so easy to get a decent breakfast using local alternatives. We were even willing to pay for it. Now we've taken breakfast a few times in town. Furthermore was the hotel visited by a group of elderly English people. All very nice and lovely. But their evening programm with quizes and bingo was scaring the other non-English guests away from the hotelbar. The diner menu was not attractive. We didn't eat once in the hotel, although we would have liked to. The other thing we didn't like that there wasn't enough information available for sseing things locally and in the surrounding area.
We spend here only one night on our way to France. Everything was fair. No wireless internet
the bed was uncomfortable
the hotel is in a great position. It is modern, clean and comfortable. The staff were polite and helpful. Very good. nothing
We liked the international flavor, the polite helpfulness of the staff, the good food.We liked it all and intend to go there as soon as they open after their well earned holidays in January. We cannot think of anything we did not like during our 3 day stay.
very helpful personel,wonderful place,private beach and perfect restaurant!!!!realy lovely hotel:))))
Close to bars and restaurants. Close to station but not too close to be noisy No direct view of sea or beach. balcony views of the back streets of the town, noisy road outside hotel. Pigeons were allowed to run around the indoor breakfast area fowling floors.
Convenient. Secure parking. Helpfull, friendly staff. Excellant breakfast. Quiet, peacefull (inside).
Overall new refurbished structure with several facilities and free wifi. Nice room decorations. Breakfast: a lot of variety of food offered but overall poor quality.Poor soundproofing of the room. No sea view.
The location and the meals were good They forgot to return our passports upon checking out, and it took us 5 days of pleading (and then threatening) to get them in the mail
We liked all the thing listed above, also the meals were something to look forward to,also the location.
It was good location and good hospitality.
One of the best hotels in the area. Perfect location.
Courteous and friendly staff, good food in the hotel dining room, pleasant and clean room, close access to restaurants and beach. It was difficult to reach the hotel because of its location on a narrow crowded street.
Simple but clean hotel, with nice location close to the see, not far from the highway. Although available - wifi was not possible to connect at the room.
Vary comfterble and friendly could not asked for better Nothing
The location and all the facilities available. The manager was very accommodating and worked as part of the hotel. No Lift.
Nice staf some speak english. In the restaurant englisch was a problem. Parking in garagebox five minute walk from the hotel
The staff were extremely helpful and friendly. Apparently a nice family business. Room well appointed, well serviced and good air con. Beach clean and well maintained and the swimming pool was large, clean and well appointed. Hotel close to restaurants and a wide variety of shops. A pleasant little community
Excellent situation, good room, pleasant balcony overlooking the sea, quiet and interesting village.
The view and location to town. Outdoor parking not gated
We got a very warm welcome on arrival . gracious hostess.A lot of the guests were quite elderely and seem to return annually.maybe not suited to younger travellers It was very comfortable hotel and very clean The breakfast was poor ,I expected plenty of fresf fruit only to get tin peaches and apples. The hot breakfast of eggs and bacon was in limited amounts.and you were waiting for them to be replaced .
the locaton is not too bad because it is right on the beach and in the center of the villate....except if you have a road side room. These are very noisy! Very noisy road side rooms, old fashend hotel, unfriendly staff. They even offerd us a discount for paying in cash! We left the hotel at midnight, because we could not sleep and they were not able to give us a quiet room.
stayed 2 nights, pleasant staff a lovely hotel by the sea
Relaxing A little regimented regarding the poolside and sunbathing facilities
Staff and facilities for the beach and pool. Close to town but not in town
Very nice comfortable appartments with air conditioning set in a large well maintained mediterraen style garden. Friendly and helpful staff. 2 good sized and well maintained swimming pools was a hit with the children and there are several shady lounging areas. 15 minute walk to the main sea promenade and town and very nice clean sandy beaches with lifeguards. Good restaurants in town and can comfortably make day trips to Genova or San Remo, which are on the very scenic coastal road. Small things - fridge door a bit broken and freezer did not work well. TV was too small to watch and was located in a corner with a very short cable - so could not be moved. A difficult place to find first time - so get the local town map from the tourist office first.
i liked the professionalisme and helpful staff. i liked the beautiful scene and sourroundings as well as the facilities in my room. everything was provided for me to have a very enjoyable stay. i will go back there and will recommend Diano Sportings Appartment to everybody. It was fantastic. Thank you everything was perfect
A pleasant stay:very good supermarket near; helpful staff.specialist delicatessen nearby;station 10 mins. walk.good shopping 10-15 mins walk . secure parking.Good cooking facilities. bed cover,but no blankets. marble flooring a little noisy.
Big terrases, swimming pool, silence, supermarket nearby No room cleaning during our 10 days stay
I liked the location of the hotel. Even though it was not close to the sea, it was located in a very quite disctrict of Diano Marino. And what is more - we had a beutiful view from our terrace. The walls and doors seem to be not very thick, we could hear everything which was happening at our neighbours' rooms.
staff was really nice, we enjoy our stay.Room were nice and clean, over all the hotel was really good, and really close to the beach.
Very clean, nice staff, large room with nice design.
It was more or less wheelchair accessible a proper accessible bathroom only outside the room in the hallway
The room, the hotel facilities, the cleanliness. The hotel looks new, the suites are excellent. Very close to the beach - which is great. The breakfast and the staff involved in the process (waiters).
Wonderfull room, Beach at 50m
We liked that it was very close to the beach and we could see the sea from our window. The breakfast buffet was rather simple.
We liked the spacey room (Junior suite) and the overall cleanliness. Also the location of the hotel was excellent. We didn't like the carpet floor in our room. Floor looked dirty and we thought that the carpet floor isn't the best option to room with a jacuzzi. Hotel's breakfast could easily be better. Currently it's quite simple and doesn't include any vegetables or anything else fresh.
Supposed to be a suite but very basic with whirlpoolbath in the bedroom, very tacky! Clean family hotel not like the photos or description. Nice area for family holiday, not really for prof. couples.
very nice and beautifull hotel, environment, very friendly staff, very good breakfast,which took place on the terrace.I can only recommend it, excellent. Nothing.It was very very nice.
I enjoyed the location of the hotel, which is very close to the beach. I also enjoyed the friendly hotel staff. For example, they offered to keep our car in their parking garage on the day of checking out so we did not have to go and look for a parking space on the last day of our vacation. The walls between the rooms were not very soundproof. Our neighbour was snoring most of the night, so that was a little bit annoying.
on the reception know more languages, that mean was easy contact! Free parking, and hotel lacatoin is super!
Comfortable and friendly
Well organized family-owned hotel. Staff speaks several languages. Breakfast ok. Good base for exploring the Italian riviera.
Service and help from the personell. Unbeatable sometimes it was too warm...
The staff, breakfast and location suited our purposes very well. We enjoyed the old city of Imperia and Porto Turistico was very picturesque. Two thumbs up for Hotel Ariston! There were tears when we left.
Location and help given
Very good choice for silent rest.near to the beach, near to departure from the town, many typical Italian restaurants around. Very cleanly, fine attitude of the staff. The closed parking
Hotel Ariston is a Family run Hotel. They were very accomodating to every need. Best part was to find onsite parking at no charge and free wifi. I would definitely return when I am in the area again.
The hotel is in a pleasant environment near the beach and some very pleasant restaurants. The possibility of extending the hotel rooms for air conditioning.
Very nice and helpful staff understanding needs of family with small children.
Very friendly staff, low price, garage availability. Difficult access to the sea, very limited breakfast, some unrepaired things on the ceiling and balcony.
