The position of the hotel is very good, just close to the station, walking distance from the Florence downtown. Readings the other comments I have the feelings that the hotel has some renewed rooms together with some old ones. Unfortunately I was in a room that totally needed to be maintained/renewed. It was very small, with a sense of old/dirty,... More

Booked this hotel because of its proximity to the train station. Location is perfect, just across the station, up a flight of stairs. Hotel staff are all very nice and helpful. Breakfast is adequate with cereals, brioche, cakes, ham, cheese, juices, fruits...and omelettes which unfortunately are not kept in warm trays, so they are served ice cold. Our room, which... More

This hotel was perfect for us the location was right across the train station, and central to most major sites in Florence. We were lucky enough to have our room upgraded for an additional 10euros a night from a double room in the Annex to a double room in the main hotel, which from what I read in other reviews... More

We stayed here for two nights and can highly recommend this hotel. We had a twin room that looked out onto a pleasant garden area with a gazebo with tables where one could eat breakfast. It is directly opposite SMN train station but you'd never know it - it was so peaceful, no traffic noise. The room was spacious and... More

Because of an computer error on my part we had no reservation waiting for us when we arrived at the hotel. It was the last day of the World Cycling Race in Firenze. The hotel offered us their last room at 250 Euros! We took it knowing very little else would be free. The room itself was lovely and spacious... More

Aurora Hotel is really just a few steps away from Santa Maria Novella. We stayed in a room in the annex with a wonderful rooftop terrace that looks out over the entire city! The room was simple but very clean. The staff was really friendly and helpful, I will definitely book my next overnight stay in Florence at Aurora Hotel.

We had booked a De Luxe Room. The first one we were given, where we spent just one uncomfortable night, was in the main building. The room was so small that there was room only to walk sideways between the end of the bed and the window - which overlooked a wall with windows in it through which the lights... More
