The best thing about this hotel is the location. The hotel is right opposite the train station and is walking distance to / from some great restaurants and shops. Although the rooms are comfortable and very spacious our room looked a bit tired and a in need of a coat of paint. The lighting is very low in the rooms... More

Travelling with my daughter at the end of October, 2014, on a budget, this hotel was a brilliant choice for us in 'Firenze'. It was extremely close to the Termini and we were able to walk everywhere from here. The service was very friendly and helpful throughout our stay. We had a lovely, comfortable room with a spacious bathroom on... More

This hotel is affordable and right in the heart of the city of Florence. Look for Marco Muratore who is a very professional face at this hotel. Always helpful, nothing was too much trouble. He made you feel welcome and he understands the importance of respectful service. The breakfasts were great value and the other staff were happy to serve.... More

We spent two nights here last October and enjoyed it so much we returned for six nights. The hotel is clean, comfortable and perfectly located for the station and all the sights.

The best thing about this hotel is its location. It's literally across the road from Firenze SMN. It was the main reason we selected the hotel (besides cost of course), as we were travelling out of Florence half of the days we were there. The check-in was simple enough but our room was average at best. It was decently sized... More

We chose this hotel for its location being so close to the train station which meant we did not have to drag our luggage through the streets of Florence. Our train arrived and we walked out and across the road to Hotel Aurora, it was that simple. We were greeted by a friendly staff member whom also provided us with... More
