This hotel is very close to the station and a short stroll to the Duomo. There are many restaurants very close by. The hotel although in the bustle of a busy part of Florence is quiet once inside. There is a most charming and tranquil garden courtyard for breakfast, (which is included in the tariff) and there is free wifi.... More

We missed the last train to Lucca and had to book a hotel last minute in Florence at 11:00 pm. The Wifi in the McDonalds at Santa Maria Novella train station worked very well and we found Aurora Hotel. It is right across the street from the train station, around the corner from the cathedral Santa Maria Novella and five... More

But what I really needed to update was the gluten free breakfast option. My niece is very allergic and the hotel has an arrangement with... More

We stayed at this hotel because it was located close to the Santa Maria Novella train station and we were going to be using the train to arrive from Milan as well as to go to Siena and back to Milan. This was so convenient for this kind of travel. The hotel is very quaint but our triple room was... More

After a good trip last year my wife and myself decided to return to Florence but this time we stayed at the Aurora. The hotel is situated just of the train station and is handy for all the sights. It is very clean and the breakfast in the garden is highly recommended. It is also tremendous value for money. What... More
