“Great hotel & helpful staff.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2013

Just back from this hotel and was pleased with our stay.
It's situated right at the end of Amalfi so just a few minutes walk from loads of resturants and shops. It's a shame it doesn't have a pool or its own beach but then neither do most of the hotels. All along the Amalfi coast its almost impossible to enjoy the simple pleasure of a stroll on the beach. Everywhere it costs to even walk down to the sea. Have the breakfast at the Aurora as its as good as you'll get anywhere and works out a lot cheaper. Nice sized, clean rooms with towels changed every day. We had a lovely balcony with a great view. A special mention for Andrew, who was extremely helpful and made our stay very enjoyable. He was a real nice guy who went out of his way to make our stay special. The rest of the staff were also great and went the extra mile to make sure we were looked after.

Stayed July 2013, traveled with friends

We stayed here on our recent trip. The rooms were clean and tidy, the reception staff were extremely helpful and the view was simply stunning. The balcony faced directly to the ocean with full ocean views. This location was in short walking distance to the main town but far enough away to feel secluded. Fantastic hotel, would highly recommend..

This small hotel is a gem of a hotel, beautifully situated overlooking the harbour with a magnificent flower filled terrace to eat breakfast on. I have never met nicer, more helpful staff, they couldn't do enough for us. Amalfi is the perfect location for trips to Sorrento, Capri & Ravello & of course Amalfi town & cathedral. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would heartily recommend the Aurora.

It is hard to say whether we were blinded by the beauty of Amalfi, but I'm PRETTY sure that this hotel is great. We booked a standard room and were surprised by how great it was. The room was very clean, with a comfortable bed. I'm sure that the shower in the bathroom was the smallest I've ever seen, and made showering a chore. The staff was the best we had during our 2 week stay in Italy. They immediately made us feel at home, with their kindness; I'm sure that they would have given us a kidney if they could. They recommended restaurants and showed us on the map where they were, as well as giving us the restaurant business cards and telling us about the discounts for hotel guests. Lo Smeraldino is the closest restaurant and was a great experience. The location of the hotel was perfect; it was a couple minute walk from town, with minimal noise. Breakfast was served in a lovely garden terrace, with a typical Continental Italian Breakfast.The yachting pier is right in front of the hotel, and is a great spot to have lunch, take pictures and relax. If I went back Amalfi I would stay at Aurora again; no need to take a risk when I already know there is a great place waiting for me.

Room Tip: Room 37 is a standard room with a Balcony and a little bit of a view.

We are back home from our holiday in Amalfi, where we had a 6 nights stay at hotel Aurora. This hotel I will not hesitate to recommend. Friendly service available 24 hours. Any question or enquiry we came up with, the staff was always there to do the best for any guest. Breakfast served on the outside terrace was a lovely Italian experience (although we could wish some warm dishes and wholemeal bread). Unfortunately a couple of mornings the weather was not allowing us to eat outside, but the hotel is not to blame for that. We had a superior room located at the top floor. Highly recommended, lot of space with sun beds available. Sitting on the terrace in the morning sun or in the evening with a glass of wine listening to the waves crashing against the rocks below us, just one word to describe that - lovely.
The location of the hotel - great - just a few minutes stroll away from Amalfi center, quiet, the only sound we could hear was just the waves.
Perhaps the hotel is in need of a small refurbish outside, some places the walls seems a bit shabby, and also the yard in front of the hotel.
But, this is Italy, when we look around, buildings and surroundings are not in the same condition as we perhaps are used to in Norway - but still charming - and one of the reasons that we love Italy.
If anyone is planning a trip to Amalfi and ask for a recommended hotel, I will undoubtedly point out Hotel Aurora as my first choice in this town.

Room Tip: Superior rooms located at the top floor with large terraces, table, chairs and sun beds.

Part of our train trip to Sicily. We spent 3 nights here. Wanted a sea view room with terrace near the town and this fitted the bill exactly. Hotel arranged transfers to and from Salerno railway station for €135 which was reasonable and very efficient. The staff were very friendly and welcoming. The breakfast in the garden was beautiful. The superior room on the 3rd floor was exactly what we wanted with fantastic views and 2 sun beds. Some noise from the small marina but we chose to sleep with the doors open to appreciate the sound of the sea. Great location if you want to be in Walking distance from Amalfi centre

Room Tip: Room 29 has own terrace not overlooked by others with lovely views

Good morning Rhoosecatlover
Thank you for your review, please know that I will be passing on your positive comments to the rest of my team. I apologize for the small noise came from Marina but consider that sea view on the wharf is very romantic as well as to lay down on sunbeds on the terrace to relax.
I hope that on your next visit to Amalfi we will be your first choice and very much look forward to welcoming you back.

We stayed at this lovely gem of a hotel at the end of the pier in Amalfi in November of 2012 after deciding to change from a hotel in Ravello. Not expecting anything like what we arrived at, we were greeted by the most courteous of staff and ushered into a spotlessly clean room with a balcony overlooking the sea, having been upgraded because it was the quiet end of the season (without additional cost!). We couldn't have been more delighted with our last minute choice. The location is fantastic. We (I should say "they") parked our car after a harrowing drive down the Amalfi coast road and we didn't see it again for a week. We walked everywhere, took the bus to Ravello for a cooking class (an entirely different fantastic adventure!), and took a boat trip to Capri from the dock, a mere five minute walk away. Amalfi square itself is only a few minutes walk away. We were two women, old friends who hadn't seen each other in ten years and we felt perfectly safe and rottenly spoiled by the staff every single day. They bent over backwards to provide us with every amenity, answered questions and spoke flawless English, and hardly laughed at our attempted Italian. If I ever had the chance to choose a honeymoon spot again, this lovely little hotel would definitely be on my short list, and I would call Andreas my favourite hotel manager of all time! (The waiters were wonderful too!)
Thank you to everyone at the Hotel Amalfi for helping to make my last week in Italy with a dear friend so very special!

Room Tip: Rooms overlooking the sea at the front with balconies are preferred but may cost more in high season...

Dear silversuitecase140

I was delighted you had an enjoyable stay with us and how much making the arrangements with Andrea it was a pleasure. We try to offer to our clients our best service, but women travelling alone deserve a preferential treatment!
Please know that I will be passing on your feedback to him as well as the housekeepers with regards to the very clean standard of rooms.
I am glad that the recent weather enabled you to enjoy our garden terrace, perfect for having breakfast in the morning!
Superior room are a bit expensive compared with standard ones but they are offered with reduction in off season or in free upgrade when booked in advance.
Thanks again and we look forward to welcoming you back to the hotel soon.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Aurora Hotel is the perfect spot to spend an unforgettable holiday in Amalfi.Located nearby the Amalfi Marina, the hotel is only 500 meters from the hustle and bustle of Piazza Duomo. It is the ideal accommodation for visiting the Amalfi Coast and its picturesque villages, such as Ravello, Positano, Capri and even the Pompeii Excavation, which are all within easy reach. The bus station and the wharf are only 5 minutes’ walk from the hotel. After a long day-trip, Aurora Hotel is just a short walk to downtown and the beach, and it is accessible without climbing stairs. One final recommendation from the hotel management: if you want to spend a few relaxing days in Amalfi, please check Aurora Hotel location on Google Maps and compare it with other hotels. Most of Amalfi hotels are located in the noisy old Town, accessible by climbing long stairs; some others are located on the highway to Positano, so you will need to take the bus, a taxi or your car in order to reach the city, driving down one of the busiest roads in Italy! ... more   less
