Hello folks, this year's traditional Christmas Market took us to Merano, a charming town in South Tirol. We booked the Hotel Aurora as they had a great deal on booking.com. The hotel is a 4 star, but I would say it was a good 3 star. The location is the best part of the hotel, being in front of the... More

Perhaps it's because we are American and came into the hotel as part of a bike group (eg looking dirty) but the receptionist was not nice - even down right rude. Rooms weren't ready at 2:45pm and we were told to go get a coffee and wait an hour... Of course we wanted a shower after 6 hours on the... More

Dear guest We are very sorry you experienced such a bad welcome in your eyes. We are also sorry you had to wait a little bit for your room. Usually we double check the room before the guest enters in order everything is wonderful. This is the reason you had to wait 5 minutes. Next time we try even better... More

The staff are very friendly and always helpful. All speak Italian, German, English and probably others. The extra touches such as the unique rooms (ours had a super size bath shower) and... More

Simply the best hotel in all of Merano I should think. A super trendy and friendly family run hotel, it gives everything to everyone, the rooms are all uniquely designed without forsaking comforts, the bed is amazing. It has also it's own signature restaurant and a club for the late nighters, all the graphic designs on the menu etc are... More

Our family of 6 people in 3 rooms, stayed at Hotel Aurora in March 2014. The hotel was very comfortable with fabulous food and wine. We were made very welcome by the competent and friendly staff. Merano itself is very attractive too. Highly recommended

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.
