“6 night stay in Hotel Auroras Apartment nr 3”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 24, 2014

We booked this 45 sqm apartment with 2 bedrooms and large livingroom
with kitchenette already half on year ago as the hotel is closed during winterperiod but these apartments are available all the time. We were travelling as two couples and it turned out to be a perfect select to stay
in this big apartment. All necessary included like dishwasher, washing machine, heating, ironing etc. what ever you needed. We made breakfast
every morning and used local and other restaurants during excursions.
There is also a coffeebar just at the same piazza and parking garage Lunna Rosso only two-three hundres meter connected with walking tunnel direct fm Piazza Muncipal. Andrea negotiated good price for us but think that during high season you must be aware of higher prices,
From the first beginning reception manager Andrea was very helpful and by arrival he supplied us with different brochures about local restaurants,
maps, bus and ferries timetables. Also nice welcoming basket was delivered to apartment for easy start of holiday.
Location of the apartment at the Piazza Muncipal is ideal for short distance to busterminal, beach and ferries. You could reach in a couple of minutes also Piazza Duomo through the narrow corridores leading beside Duomo to the centre of Amalfi. There are no seaviews fm apartments but that's no problem as all amazing views you can see
daily in live when moving around.
We enjoyed our stay in this spotless and peacefull apartment not to talk about any visitingplaces with very short distance like Capri, Sorrento,
Positano, Ravello, Pompeij, Vesuvius etc.
We can highly recommend for accomodation this apartment for families and couples.

Room Tip: Fitness center located in the first floor but daily they closed very early.

Good afternoon Hannu H

Thank you very much for taking the time to complete your comments on www.tripadvisor.com; it helps us enormously to maintain our standards. I have passed your comments to Andrea who was very happy. Accommodation in apartments is for very independent guests but we never leave them alone during the stay, we like to offer our best support.
We look forward to seeing you soon! In the meantime visit our blog about habits and traditions in Amalfi Coast on www.aurora-amalfi.com

Hands down the best hotel we stayed at along the Amalfi Coast. The manager was incredibly pleasant and so accommodating. We arrived and we're greeted with such warmth and professionalism. We stayed on 3rd floor (I believe) and had a big room with a massive terrace (ocean view at the very East corner-set back a bit from the other rooms for privacy) . It was a beautiful and clean room with a gorgeous view! It was truly paradise. The manager sent up a bottle of preseco and olives that just added to our honeymoon stay that much more. We couldn't have been treated better and we can't wait to go back again. We wished we didn't go to Positano after Amalfi as it was packed with loud and inconsiderate tourists and our hotel stay was twice as expensive as Hotel Aurora with a small room and rude staff (do not stay at Palazzo Talamo!). The town of Amalfi is way better and filled with wonderful locals and great food.

A fantastic little hotel in a fabulous location close to the water in Amalfi. Most rooms have a sea view and we requested one with a terrace which was fabulous to sit out on early morning or late at night gazing out to sea. Rooms are spacious. Breakfast is served on the terrace and that is a real highlight. Hotel is only a 5 minute walk to the town square of Amalfi and has a private beach with lounges.
All the staff were really friendly and we would not hesitate to recommend this hotel.

We stayed mid June which was just perfect weather lovely and warm and before the real crowds of summer had arrived.

Room Tip: Request a room with a terrace

We stayed 3 nights in October.
The hotel is facing to sea side. Our room had a terrace and the terrace had great view ! Only 5 minutes to get to the main street by foot. Both great view & good access to the city center, the location is very good.
The hotel staffs were very kind and helpful.
The hotel doesn't have a restaurant, but it isn't a problem. There are many restaurants near there. For breakfast, the hotel is providing a small breakfast at the outside terrace. There wasn't variety of food, but the terrace and its view was really great. If a weather is nice, I recommend to take a breakfast at the hotel once.

If you have a small child, you might need to consider about a baby wagon. Because the elevator is too small to carry a baby wagon.

Room Tip: Of course, higher floor has better view.

We enjoyed a lovely 3 days at the Aurora Apartments in Amalfi, Andreas at reception was fabulously helpful and always an absolute pleasure to communicate with about anything.
The apartments are away from the hotel in a quiet plaza at the other end of the main waterfront, no views but a very clean, practical apartment in a quiet & safe area.
We tried the restaurants Andreas recommended and were very satisfied with the quality of the food and service.
We recommend this apartment #2, the 3 of us were very comfortable.
Ciao !

My husband and I stayed here for 1 week at the end of May into June. We loved the hotel, we had a standard room with sea view and we found it perfect for us.Large bed, very clean. There are other superior rooms with large balconies which look fabulous, but I suppose it depends on what you prefer to spend your money on. We dont spend much time in our rooms, prefering to be out sightseeing or on the beach. The garden terrace is gorgeous with wonderful views of the coast where we enjoyed the breakfast and the coffee in particular.Unfurtunately there was unusually terrible weather at the start of our week, we arrived to cold, pouring rain and thunder storms, just pure bad luck as the first day was our joint birthdays, we were hoping for a day on the beach! Ah well. The weather improved and was red hot towards the end of the week.
We found all the staff were very welcoming and feel a special mention needed to Andreas on reception and Andrew at breakfast. Would return if had the opportunity.

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...

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
