My wife and I were there early July, a music festival was underway in Merano and our room had a balcony right above the restaurant. It was great, we drank wine and listed to the music. No cars to bother you, just a cobblestone street not open to cars and then the river, also right across from the thermals. The... More

Very accomodating, right into the center and with an excellent restaurant. Rooms are spacious and modern. Wifi is for free and works well! Beds are very comfy and bathrooms are super clean. Room in the front with balcony is a must to have a little break in the sun. Breakfast buffet is very generous. I travel on average every 3... More

Very pleasant staff. Excellent food and a nice location. The hotel was close to shops and restaurants. I enjoy walking, so I found walking along the river relaxing. I would definitely go back if I visit Merano again.

Fabulous location, right on the river walkway, gorgeous views. Stayed in the suite with a lovely, river facing terrace. The room was recently redecorated in super modern white. Bidet, great shower and fun tv on the ceiling! Breakfast was great in a well appointed restaurant. Yes, we did here some noise from the bar downstairs, but we knew that when... More

If you want to be in the middle of Merano, the Aurora has the best location, at the entrance to the pedestrian area and right on the bank of the river. The hotel itself is fine and my room (a so-called designer room) was modern and well furnished. The public areas were fine too. The open plan bar area and... More

We stayed in a design room - in itself the room was ok, spacious enough and clean. But the rest of the hotel is so poor, it doesn't work at all. The tatty red carpet in the dark hallway, the reception stuffed full of grotty old furniture, the faint smell of cigarette smoke throughout all combine to make this an... More

I've read many opinions about this hotel, some so happy and some so unhappy...I feel in the middle. Let's start from the "lights": - the position couldn't be better, right on the promenade, Christmas Markets just over the door and Therms across the bridge - breakfast rich, some local tastes (spek and cheeses) and oranges for "self-service" juice (great) plus...

I came to Merano a couple of days ahead of my husband, so stayed in a smaller back-facing room the first two nights. For one person it was fine. The view still included the high mountains that are so breathtaking in that direction. However, I sensed this room would be uncomfortably small for the two of us, and the bathroom... More

The hotel is being advertised as a design hotel.Our room had nothing in common with the rooms one could see on the hotel site - a small room furnished in the style of the 60s - indeed a very original idea how to turn a partially refurbished hotebll into a design hotel. On which basis was the 4 star rating... More
