“very nice b&b”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2012

The owners are very kind and helpful, breakfast is rich and very good and served in a nice location, rooms are simple but nice. No problem at all with the shared bathroom which was always clean and in common just between two rooms. Highly recommended.

We only stayed at the little B&B for one night, but it was a very pleasant experience. The owner is very nice and friendly and he never skips to ask if everything is alright. He helped us to find a nice restaurant for dinner and made us feel very welcome.
The rooms are beautifully decorated - seemingly every room in a different color. The breakfast was really good. Fresh juice, good pastry, jam, fruit, eggs - everything one could wish for.
The room was mostly quiet, even though it was facing the road.
Sadly, in the morning, a family in the next room couldn't keep their noise level down. We were too tired to confront them and also didn't want to bother the receptionist. However - I can't understand that some people think they're the only ones in the world.
As this was the only thing that was not perfect - and the hotel isn't to blame for the way some people behave - our stay was really pleasant, comfortable and I would never hesitate to come back.
Very recommendable! A comfy, cozy place and nice staff!

That's a simple but comfortable small hotel, very quiet and good for a relaxing stay. The owner is very kind and the atmosphere is familiar.

The hotel is itself a little gem hidden in another gem, the Duino town.

This is hands-down one of the most brilliant places to stay in Duino - a real treasure find!. As somebody who returns often to Duino-Aurisina, I would not pick any other place over Garni Aurora. The bed and breakfast is immaculate, breakfast - delicous and location can't be beat - 30 seconds from the piazza. Not to mention free broadband WiFi connection - absolute rarity in Italy. The staff would go out of their way to help you out. Can't wait to be back!

We stayed here one night on our way to France. We spent 20 minutes driving around Duino because we missed the sign for the hotel. If you are in the small piazza you went to far, the hotel its on the main road before the small village center. I would not spend here more than 1-2 days, the hotel is great, very clean, very helpful staff and free wifi! Would stay here again!

Albergo Garni Aurora is a lovely, family-run hotel in Duino, just 15 km from Trieste. The rooms are clean, the beds are very comfortable.The sea ist just 300 meters far from the hotel(it is behind the garden) and in the nights cool breezes are coming from the sea:-) So you can really have a good night's sleep! There's a free car park just opposite the hotel. A nice garden is waiting for you on warm summer evenings. There's free Wi-Fi as well. The bus station is only 200 meters from the hotel. By bus you can reach Trieste within 30 minutes. Because of its central location, you can easily reach places like Grado, Aquileia or Venezia. The staff is very friendly and helpful. If you have any problem or question, just ask the owner, Andrea. He helps you and gives you very precious "insider" tips:-) Anyway, Duino is a very charming place at the sea. Don't forget to visit the Castle of Duino where you can walk into the footsteps of the famous Austrian poet, Rilke.The castle is a hidden gem and a very unique experience. It is overlooking the Gulf of Trieste and has a gorgous park with fountains and flowers. But you can go inside and have a look at the interior as well, and there's even a cave under the castle which you are allowed to visit. No wonder that the castle inspired Rilke who wrote his famous "Duino Elegies" within these walls. Duino is a must have for every literature-fun!
