As it was our first trip to Italy, we were unprepared for the sheer majesty of the landscape! And Hotel Aurora was a delightful surprise - about five minutes walking along the shoreline from the City Centre of Amalfi - the sea to our right, the terraced mountains to our left. It was not even necessary to go all the way into town, as restaurants and bars are located along the seaside walk. From the Aurora, you can walk directly up the mountain to other villas, restaurants, towns, and hotels - with breathtaking vistas every step of the way.
The hotel itself was immaculate. Service at all levels was impeccable. The extra euro cost for the terrace rooms is well spent - provides a huge amount of extra living space, outdoors, overlooking the sea - and we met some wonderful fellow-travellers in adjacent suites. Your terrace can be as private or open as you feel you want to be.
Access to all the surrounding towns and sites is easily available from Aurora - five to ten minute walk to buses and ferries! Also, the staff are highly qualified to help you when you just can't decide which towns you just can't miss! Amalfi itself was our favourite of the towns we visited, and we are ever so pleased we had some extra time to discover it at our leisure. Ciao Amalfi, and our dear friends at the Hotel Aurora - till next time!
- 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
