We stayed at the Aurora between 17-21 April 2009. It's a great little budget hotel just a stones throw away from the main square in Amafi and is a perfect base for exploring the beautiful towns on the Amalfi Coast. The hotel was clean, airy and nothing was too much trouble for the extremely friendly staff. Our room at the front of the hotel (no. 21) had a sea view which was a little obscured by the trees outside but on the whole it was bright and pleasant. My only complaint was the bed! I got very little sleep on the first night as the mattress was much too hard and the pillows felt like rock. We informed the management who said that most of beds had been replaced and that all of the new mattresses were very firm. They did offer us a room move (to one with an older, slightly softer mattress) but to be honest there was little difference between the two so we stuck with our original room and had the mattress covered with blankets to soften it slightly. This helped as I managed to get to sleep the second night but even so a lie-in the following morning was out of the question! At the end of the stay the manager was kind enough to deduct some money from the bill for the inconvenience.
- 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
