We travelled to Fiesole as a large group for a friend's wedding, we picked this hotel based on it's location and having a pool for our hot late May 5 day stay. The only positive thing to say about this hotel is the location, right in the middle of the square with plenty of restaurants to choose from, right next... More

We had lunch few days ago in this Fiesole "old lady". Great view and that is all about! A really shame! The waiter tried to do his best but still the aperol spritzer took 1/2 hour to arrive at our table! The place was quite almost asleep for lunch time! Only another table occupiedThe starter with a caper se salad... More

First of all, the price and star rating is ridiculous for what you actually get. Yes, the view is gorgeous (not from the hotel itself since trees are in the way) but other than that there's nothing else to offer. They offer free breakfast, but the breakfast is literally one small table laid out in the dining room with tables... More

I really love the location of this hotel. Fiesole is like a separate little village with a great view above Florence, and just a short distance away. This hotel is perched right above, with great views and some Old World charm. It faces a piazza with several restaurants and bars where you can get a nice meal. if you want... More

We went with my friend to the restaurant on a tuesday in october. The place was full and the waiter was apparently alone and it seemed we were going to have to wait a bit (we learned the other waiter was sick) but as it looked marvelous we decided to stay. The service was very good and the food excellent!... More

Let me start by saying that there is no way that this is a 4 star hotel. We spent one night at the Aurora and are happy to be gone. It's a perfect location for a good hotel, but it is not a good hotel. We were lucky to have a beautiful room looking over Florence but everything about the... More

My wife and I took the bus from Firenze up to Fiesole and grabbed a quick lunch on the terrace at Villa Aurora. Quick and pleasant service, excellent food and reasonably priced with excellent views overlooking Firenze (Florence). Recommended!

We were in Fiesole for a wedding and the Villa Aurora was the wedding block hotel that had been set up for out of town guests. Having come from 4 nights in Florence at a gorgeous hotel, the Villa Aurora was definitely a let down. I will say that the location was great for us as it is across the... More

I am usually reluctant to make disingenuous comments on a hotel as there is normally something positive to say about most of those we have stayed in around the world. So let's start with the positive, the staff were very friendly and the location in the hills above Florence delightful with the most magnificent views and a convenient bus ride... More

We visited Florence recently and we were on a big bus tour which took us to the attractive village of Fiesole. We decided to stop for our lunch here and went to the Aurora. The views from this restaurant were stunning. We arrived at 12:10. We were offered water. We waited 10 minutes for a menu but we had to... More
