I am familiar with fiesole but had never stayed in a hotel there. I had read the reviews and depsite the comments of "seen better days" I was drawn to a place with a history and a beautiful view. We arrived in the early evening and we weren't disappointed. We had a lovely view on florence from our spacious room... More

Beautiful property that has seen better days. Good location but not well cared for. Water damage everywhere, threadbare carpets. Mattress needs replacement. Front desk clerk helpful but so brisk that comes off as almost rude.

From the exterior, it seems that the building is crumbling. Queen Victoria stayed here and although the bathroom in our room had been renovated, one felt that there was an understandable reluctance to alter the delicate hand-painted decorations in the room. (We had room 31 - with a four poster bed, balcony and the most memorable views over Florence and... More

After travelling 15 hours from the US. We are greeted by an older woman with dark brown hair at the front desk(forgot her name). She quietly checks us in the hotel without asking us if there is anything that we need and points to the stairs to tell us our room is on the 2nd floor as her English is... More

Hotel in center of Fiesole. Faded glory - nice, charming (must have been fantastic 100 years ago)but worne out and in general up for renovation, although the bathrooms in our rooms had been renovated. Noisy arico. Basic breakfast. Uninspiring, awkwardly located swimming pool with 5 (!) loungers but no towels for swimming. Free parking.

A beautiful Hotel with very friendly staff who will cater for your every need, a quite basic room but the Hotel feels very comfortable and relaxed, family orientated. The food in the restaurant was excellent and reasonably priced with a free fresh breakfast every morning. A complimentary bar in the room plus shampoo's and soaps to go with it. Large... More

When I must host a guest or myself I prefer the fresh air above the trees over the hills below Fiesole and a view over and above the cesspool of polluted and overpopulated Florence and its mundane tourism way below. In keeping with historical customs of elite European Nobility, Villa Aurora offers a 19th century terrace and swimming pool, greenery,... More

We stayed for five nights recently at the Villa Aurora Hotel in Fiesole. Our room was very lovely with a terrace overlooking the city of Florence. We have stayed here before but the first time the room was very ordinary, this time we were not disappointed. There is a convenient bus that stops in front of the hotel on a... More
