Wonderful find in Almalfi, will be back !Posted Jun 4, 2015
Pros: Everything ! But if you like plastic, cold, shiny corporate hotels then this is not the one for you. It is personal, friendly, authentic italian !
Cons: VERY difficult to come up with anything to fault ! But being really picky, I'd say bring your own travel hairdryer (if hair is important to you).
Location: The hotel is situated in the best position ever with stunning views of Almalfi ! Close to the town with easy access to local transport.
The Hotel Aurora was a great find. The BEST location possible in Almalfi ! right on the sea front with fantastic views of the marina and town. Really quiet and peaceful, but within a couple of min's walk to the busy main centre. Spotless rooms and very helpful and friendly staff. The location made it so easy to hop on buses or boats to all the other wonderful places to visit in the area such as Positano and Ravello. There were so many lovely restaurants serving beautiful fresh pasta or fish. The hotel made recommendations and offered discounts in many of the local restaurants. The Aurora offers breakfast, which was popular with other guests. We are not really breakfast people so never used it, but the smell every morning was delicious. Prior to our arrival we contacted Andrea at the hotel to arrange a private taxi transfer. The service offered was seamless, our driver was excellent and waiting for us on arrival and departure to Naples Airport.

Great HotelPosted Apr 28, 2015
Pros: the owners treated you with award winning class and you definately feel like their guests...thank you thank you thank you
What a great experience the hotel is very conveniently located to the buses, and the ferries to take you on your other journeys ( capri, sorrento, positano) Upon arriving John took care of all our needs we got our room upgraded and he gave the best advice to our daily excursions ( he recommended Ravello) and he was right.Great outdoor porch for a great nite with a great bottle of wine.

Great place for a few nightsPosted Apr 7, 2015
Pros: View was fantastic. Free wifi was just introduced which is a real plus.
Cons: Kettle and coffee making in the room. More power outlets for the numerous Internet devices we all now use daily.
Location: Parking nearby. Many restaurants close by and reasonably priced.
Very helpful staff who will go out their way to assist. Hotel at beach level ie no walking up endless steps and close to town centre. A bit expensive overall but to be expected so close in. Amalfi is a much better location than Positano we feel. Will return and recommend to friends.

Perfect place to relax and unwindPosted Mar 20, 2015
We stayed here in September 2014, it was the last stop on a tour of Italy and the perfect place to unwind. The hotel is ideally located, about a 5 minute walk from the center of town which is great, puts you far enough outside town to avoid all the people but close enough to walk into town for a quick lunch or nice dinner. We got a room with a balcony, I highly recommend it, lots of space with great views of the ocean. The breakfast in the morning was delish, lots of options on a beautiful terrace. The beach at the hotel was often closed because of rough water so you had to pay at the public beach next door, I think it was 15 euros for the day with a towel. The beach was also all rocks, so be prepared with water shoes. Staff at the hotel was awesome, very helpful and friendly. The beds were hard but clean. All in all we loved our time at Hotel Aurora .

Plain and simple, no frills, or stylePosted Oct 4, 2014
Pros: The shower head (even with the superfluous lighting)
Cons: The price point, and some individuality, and help with the bags. The porter walked me to my room but did not offer to help carry even 1 of my 5 bags!
Location: Ravello, Villa Cimbrone, Amalfi Paper Mill Museum
Coming to Amalfi after Positano wase a tough act to follow, and similarly the hotel I stayed in here did not compared to the hotel in Positano - The Miramare, which was cheaper and better in all areas. The surrounding area of this hotel is run down and shabby, and certainly not inviting. The hotel itself is clean, and simply furnished, but there is very little attempt to add any warmth or individuality to the corridors or rooms. The room itself was a good size, with a large bathroom and the large terrace. Sadly the terrace was not really private from the other terraces, which did not make it feel inviting to relax on. The mini bar is so well hidden I only found it as I was leaving the room ( hidden behind a grill panel without any markings). The bed (2 humped singles pushed together) tended to make you roll onto the join. All in all, a basic hotel being charged at a higher than basic price, so not value for money with breakfast, wifi, and parking all charged as extra's (to be paid in CASH ONLY) I would not want to stay here again. In fact Amalfi as a town, is more of a gritty cruise ship shopping outlet. The restaurants I was recommended were all closed, so the ones I tried were forgettable. You might get a better experience by spending time in the day here in Amalfi (venture through the town to the paper mill museum, which was the highlight for me), then head up to Ravello for a memorable overnight base, with stunning views and culture, and food.

Sounds of waves & picturesque viewsPosted Sep 9, 2014 on Hotels
Fantastic location, steps from the beach and marina and a 4 minute walk to town makes this hotel one to return to again. The comfortable lobby along with the kind and helpful staff was welcoming. Hearing the waves coming to shore lulls one to sleep peacefully after a day of sailing and shopping. The shower was small but effective. Sadly breakfast was not included but the stunning views of Amalfi were worth the extra cost. Truly a gem shining bright in Amalfi.
