Hotel Aurora
Ranked #2 of 14 Hotels in Alba di Canazei
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed October 18, 2009

We stayed three nights at the height of the summer tourist season in the Dolomites. We chose the hotel based on TripAdvisor reviews, and the fact that owners/hosts Terri and Ugo are avid bicyclists, as are we. Aurora surpassed our expectations--despite being very busy, they found time to share their knowledge of the area and the many Dolomite passes we were there to ride. We learned much about the history and culture from them as well. Both speak English (it is Terri's native language).
We found the rooms unpretentious, clean and comfortable. The food is plentiful and excellent, and the service staff is friendly as well.
The location is ideal for cyclists and hikers/climbers. There are a few places in Alba to get a beer at night, but many more in nearby Canazei.

Our visit was in summer when the Dolomites are popular with walkers, cyclists or any holiday-maker seeking incredible scenery. As cyclists, we appreciated the hotel's accessibility and proximity to challenging rides. We welcomed our host's recommendations regarding these rides. Our room was comfortable and clean. It was a pleasure to eat in the restaurant both for the quality of the food and the attention to detail and warmth of the serving staff.

A fantastic value for the price - Terri and Ugo, the owners, were wonderful and treated their guests as if they were part of the family. Rooms are very basic, but clean and cozy with nice bathrooms. It's in Alba, but the walk to the center of Canazei isn't bad, and there's no need to worry about being close to restaurants as the food served at the Aurora is FANTASTIC. Highly recommend doing the half-board if you decide there. Nothing like coming "home" for delicious food after a day of climbing in the beautiful mountains.

The hotel is driven by Terri and Hugo, which is some really fantastic people! The rooms are fine, the food great, and the whole athmosphere at the hotel is very familiar and cozy. I have been there two years now with a group of skiers, and we allways feel very welcome and appreciated.

We will definitely come back next year for more skiing in the fantastic area of Canazei/Marmolada/Val de Fassa, which has some of the most fantastic ski slopes I have ever seen :-)

Look forward to see you next year ;-)

This is the third time we've stayed at Albergo Aurora--this time we brought friends too. Ugo and Teri run a warm and convenient place. We recommend the half board as the dinners are excellent. Visit soon, because we're afraid some big hotel or restaurant will steal the current chef. Oh, and it's a real bargain if you go during the swing seasons (always recommended in the Dolomites).

This is a fairly basic place for a resort, (no swimming pool or tennis, or gym) but everything they do is done well. Rooms are clean and comfortable and we've always had good views. Ugo and Teri speak fluent English and you'll get to know them over the friendly meals. They're very helpful with local information and have excellent outdoor skills themselves.

Don't shortchange your stay here. You want to be sure to have several nights both for the food and to give you time to explore the Dolomites. Weather can be iffy, so the more time you have, the more likely you'll be to have nice days.

Alba de Canazei is a great location in the heart of the Dolomites. Aurora is an easy walk (about 15 minutes) to Canazei and several gondolas to the high country. We've only been to Canazei in the Summer/Fall so can't speak for Winter experiences.
