“A hotel to return to”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2013

We have travelled extensively since our retirement and 5 years ago we stayed at the Aurora and were delighted with everything: since that time it has been at the very top of our list. Earlier this year our friends suggested a joint holiday and we in turn proposed the Aurora - the only time that we have returned to a 'holiday' hotel. None of us were at all disappointed; rather the contrary. In a beautiful small city (yes - there is a Cathedral) midway along a breathtaking coast and with excellent road and sea ferry transport links (and rail from nearby Salerno), the hotel is in an outstanding situation with sea-view rooms barely 50yds from the sea the hotel benefits, in our opinion, with being possibly in the best location in the area. And the Staff could not be more attentative. A return is definately part of our future plans.

Room Tip: Talk direct with the hotel and ask for a top-floor sea-view room with a patio. DON'T BE TEMPTE...

It was our first visit to Amalfi and we spent some time pondering which hotel to stay in. Overall our choice of the Aurora was a good one. The staff were very good and the management excellant. Andreas and Andrew outstanding. The hotel would have been even better with it's own restaurant as it is a long walk( for us!) into the centre. However there is a mini bus service into Amalfi on weekday mornings and also a good restaurant across the road from the hotel, the " delle Sirene" so that helps. Not too far from buses and boat trips.The hotel arranged taxi transfers from and back to Naples Airport at a very reasonable 95 euros e/w.

Room Tip: 29 a corner room with good views and large terrace

First things first, for the little bit extra you pay, it is worth it to get a room view and a terrace. The prices are reasonable anyway but if you pay in advance you get a further discount. The terraces are large, clean, well provided with 2 chairs, 2 loungers and a sturdy, prettily tiled table. The room is spacious, with a large bed,(albeit two large singles together) mirrors, a large wardrobe and plenty of other furniture. Air con was a little noisy but worked superbly. Tastefully tiled and very clean. Bathroom was nice enough with a sunflower head style shower,(a little on the snug side, no bath and could be a touch temperamental but these are very minor complaints) and a hairdryer.
The safe is small,(2 passports and a wallet and purse at the most) but free. Besides, you also get a large lockable drawer, so laptops and such can be secured. Seriously good Wifi free after obtaining a password.
The staff are wonderful and on arrival suggested a few restaurants to us and gave us cards to get 10% off a few of them. The Silver moon was one of these and was fabulous and unbeatable value even without the discount. The other was a restaurant near the hotel called Lo Smeraldino and i would urge everyone to go. No discount but a truly wonderful suggestion and we had the best meals there of any on the coast.
Breakfast was on a beautiful, flower drenched courtyard terrace overlooking the sea and was always delicious. Meats, cheeses, bread, rolls, cereals, yoghurts, juices and fresh fruit were always available and waited by professional, friendly staff.
Speaking of the staff, the difference they offer is that as well as being professional they also come across as personable, smiley and genuinely interested in your welfare. You could see some of my fellow holiday makers clearly adored them. Yep, they are a definite plus. At any time of day or night they will make you a drink to enjoy al fresco or in the lounge area. Good prices too.
Yes it's away form the centre but this is good. Peaceful and calm. Anyway, it's only a few minutes flat stroll away from the centre, so there really is not a problem.
Great value, great staff, great hotel! Love it, love it, love it!

Room Tip: Balcony room with terrace a must.

We stayed at the Hotel Aurora 7 years ago and came back because of that experience. Once again, we were delighted with our accommodations and the location. The hotel is located at the end of the waterfront area, away from the crowds and noise but still very close to town, transportation and great restaurants. Be sure to reserve a room with a terrace, it is a great spot to sit and relax and stare at the sea while you recover from the days activities, or make plans for the next day. Breakfast is served in the lovely garden terrace area and is fairly typical European breakfast fare. The rooms are spotless, and the staff is very helpful and friendly. They spoke English, helped us with tours and transportation suggestions, and knew us by name throughout our week. I highly recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: Order a superior room with Terrace

This is a beatiful hotel in an ideal location for easy access to the beaches, restaurants and transport to rest of the Amalfi coast. The service is excellent with friendly staff and the rooms very clean. You have wonderful sea views enhanced by breakfast mainly being served in the pretty terraced garden. I would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: choose non smoking sea view with balcony

We stayed at the hotel Aurora for 7 days from 20 to 27 September, to celebrate a special Birthday. The hotel is in a quiet and good location, with a lovely lido in front which supplied beach towels for a set price, although you do get a discount as you are a guest staying in the hotel and there was also a nice restaurant, and the staff are so friendly. We upgraded to a sea view, which did not disappoint, our room was lovely, bright and clean. The staff were excellent and very friendly. The breakfast was continental and served on the terrace, which was lovely as the weather was beautiful. There was a short stroll along the sea front to the main square and town. There were plenty of wonderful restaurants in the town and also on the sea front.
We booked 2 trips with Thomson prior to our visit, which was lucky as the trip to Pompeii and Herculaneum was full, we also went to Capri, both are good value for money and amazing, must sees.
The Amalfi Coast is so beautiful, and the people are really friendly, we will return in a year or two and will be re-booking the Aurora hotel as it was a lovely retreat.

Room Tip: We chose to upgrade for a sea view and was not disappointed

We spent 2 nights at the Hotel Aurora and loved the location of this hotel. It is just at the end of the beach area with its own private beach access, close to shopping and all the wonderful local restaurants. This hotel is clean and has lovely balconies with sea views and chaise lounges to soak up the sun. An older hotel that certainly makes the most of what they have. Staff are attentive and helpful with excellent recommendations for dining out.

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
