“Very nice hotel!”
Reviewed June 18, 2011

We stayed at the Aurora for our son's graduation at UWC last May, in fact, it was him who recommended to us because he said it's the best hotel in Duino, and he was right! Andrea makes you feel at home from the moment you walk in and he makes a great breakfast too!! I recommend this hotel without any doubt. Thanks Andrea for a lovely time, if you are ever coming to Venezuela please let us know.

Albergo Garni Aurora is undoubtedly one of the true gems of the enchanting port village of Duino. The rooms are clean, well-sized and light - and furnished with televisions for those of you who want to indulge yourself in the very entertaining exercise of watching Italian game shows. It is well placed for walks along Rilke Path, to the castle and down to the sea, and I seriously doubt that you could find anything in the area with greater value for money. Andrea, the multilingual host, is extremely welcoming and helpful, creating a warm atmosphere which is replicated in all the other elements of the hotel. I have come back to stay here on numerous occasions, and every time I return I am invited back in with open arms. It really is, to quote the tagline of the hotel, "a home away from home" - I would strongly recommend it over anywhere else in the area.

If you like somewhere quiet and friendly then this is an ideal place. Fantastic host, who was welcoming, friendly and helpful. On the bus route from the airport to Trieste with cheap ans regular public transport. The local castle well worth a visit and there is a pleasant walk to the nearby harbour in Sistiana. We would stay there again.

Tip: Don't follow the street signs posted by the castle. Follow the road out of the village as though heading for Trieste and it's about 100m on the right.

Room Tip: Don't follow the street signs to the hotel.

Loved it !!! Not so much for the rooms (although the beds are really comfy) which have really small bathrooms but, who cares when the owners welcomes you like if you were members of the family! Really! We'll definitely go back!

Room Tip: The owners will really help you with that!

The hotel is very nice and clean and Andrea and the staff are so friendly and helpful!
The area is great! Central location in Duino (close to castle and Rilke path)
The bus station to Triëst and Gorizio is 100 meters from the hotel.
Good bus service to the airport Ronchi Dei Legionari
The beach is a few hundred meters from the hotel and there is also a very good restaurant and a little supermarket.
You can walk to Slovenië in 3,5 hours ;)
We will everybody heartily recommend this hotel!!
