Let me start by saying that there is no way that this is a 4 star hotel. We spent one night at the Aurora and are happy to be gone. It's a perfect location for a good hotel, but it is not a good hotel. We were lucky to have a beautiful room looking over Florence but everything about the... More

My wife and I took the bus from Firenze up to Fiesole and grabbed a quick lunch on the terrace at Villa Aurora. Quick and pleasant service, excellent food and reasonably priced with excellent views overlooking Firenze (Florence). Recommended!

We were in Fiesole for a wedding and the Villa Aurora was the wedding block hotel that had been set up for out of town guests. Having come from 4 nights in Florence at a gorgeous hotel, the Villa Aurora was definitely a let down. I will say that the location was great for us as it is across the... More

I am usually reluctant to make disingenuous comments on a hotel as there is normally something positive to say about most of those we have stayed in around the world. So let's start with the positive, the staff were very friendly and the location in the hills above Florence delightful with the most magnificent views and a convenient bus ride... More

We visited Florence recently and we were on a big bus tour which took us to the attractive village of Fiesole. We decided to stop for our lunch here and went to the Aurora. The views from this restaurant were stunning. We arrived at 12:10. We were offered water. We waited 10 minutes for a menu but we had to... More

We stayed here for one evening and had a pleasant stay. The only initial issue had nothing to do with the hotel itself, but the challenges in getting there by car--there were some road closures that left us fumbling to find the right route, but we were guided by an ever helpful Italian to get us there. The room was... More

We were bumped from another Florence Hotel ( seems a common scam ) and sent to this Hotel kind of late evening. After a pleasurable drive reached an ancient place right from two centuries away. Quaint, old and funny was the first comments. But we buttoned up and stayed the night. The owners were kind to give my wife a... More

We were a family of sixteen (ranging in age from 9 to 79) and the hotel was very accommodating. One reason we chose it was that the public bus to Florence stopped just outside our door. However, we were not warned about the danger of being served with a costly fine if the ticket is not purchased ahead of time.... More

I had stayed in this place many years ago. let me put this gently, it hasn't aged well. We were greeted by a man who was poorly dressed. The lobby was shabby, was was the rest of the place. When I was shown the room, my instant reaction was I'd seen cells for silent monks that were more welcoming. The... More

This property is not perfect but it is truly lovely. As a New Yorker, I enjoyed the strong beauty of the old and did not expect it to be a W or Hilton. Some rooms have been renovated a bit. The reason you are in this hotel is to enjoy the situation. You can feel Italian, living above a gorgeous... More
