Booked through Crystal holidays and it was located in Malcesine approx 100 metres from the lakeside in a small square and very central. The Aurora is a small family run hotel and classed as 2 star in the brochure. This review is based on the 2 stars as signs in the area rate it as a 1 star. I think some work has been carried out since the 1 star rating was given.
The rooms are a reasonable size (We expected them to be small but were pleasantly surprised) with a dressing table / mirror. Two chairs, one double wardrobe with two drawers, plenty of hangers, two bedside units with 2 drawers each and one luggage stand. The double bed was 2 singles put together and very comfortable. The TV (14”) had satellite with 4 English speaking news channels. Also German, French and Italian channels. Air con unit in the room was quite quiet, controlled from reception and on at the time of our visit. The bedroom floor was laminate wooden.
Bathroom – Long and narrow, shower at one end, then large sink, bidet and toilet. Fully tiled and very clean. Shower cubicle was a touch small but water pressure was very strong and plenty of hot water when needed. The bathroom area lacked an extraction fan. Towels supplied were changed regularly but were very rough. The quality of all fitments suggested that the rooms had been renovated recently and the whole room was very clean and cleaned daily. I think the bed sheets were changed once during our 7 day stay. The room had a view over the Piazza which was nice but did present some noise issues. There were 4 bars / restaurants in the square and plenty more nearby at night. Windows when closed did keep most of the noise out and the room walls were quite soundproofed as we hardly heard anything from the rest of the guests.
The Hotel only provided bed and breakfast. The breakfast was excellent and the staff could not do enough to help. Bread, Ham & Cheese, Eggs (scrambled or boiled), Croissants, jam, butter, nutella, yoghurt, orange juice and any type of hot drink.
The Hotel does not have a lift and the door keys for the rooms appeared to fit all rooms as some late arrivals found their way into our room whilst we were in bed!!
