Excellent day with beautiful views of the city of Florence. Stopped for lunch and at the Hotel Aurora - had toasted mozzarella on toast covered with mushrooms to share. We both had spaghetti with tomatoes and basil with beers. Very nice. Not too expensive and very pleasant staff.

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

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

“Check that the pool is open. Book the balcony room. Use it as a base but not to spend too much time actually in the hotel.”
