We booked this hotel for one night to break up the drive from Rome to Calabria. We arrived around 3:30PM well past check in time and we were informed that our room wouldnt be ready for another hour. Based on their website they stated they had parking. First off to get to the hotel is a nightmare. One small road packed with cars. My car was nicked in a few areas. Apparently the hotel parking is very limited and only for small cars (basically 2 doors) so they arrange for someone to pick it up and take it to a garage just ten minutes away. When we checked out we had to wait 45 minutes to get the car back. When the room was ready they told us they gave us an upgrade to a bigger room for the same price. This was a lie because the room we got was the one we had reserved in the beginning. The beach was very small and cramped with umbrellas on top of each other. The room was a decent size but it could have been cleaner. There were ants in the bathroom. Breakfast was nothing special. Would not go back here.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Aurora Hotel is the perfect spot to spend an unforgettable holiday in Amalfi.Located nearby the Amalfi Marina, the hotel is only 500 meters from the hustle and bustle of Piazza Duomo. It is the ideal accommodation for visiting the Amalfi Coast and its picturesque villages, such as Ravello, Positano, Capri and even the Pompeii Excavation, which are all within easy reach. The bus station and the wharf are only 5 minutes’ walk from the hotel. After a long day-trip, Aurora Hotel is just a short walk to downtown and the beach, and it is accessible without climbing stairs. One final recommendation from the hotel management: if you want to spend a few relaxing days in Amalfi, please check Aurora Hotel location on Google Maps and compare it with other hotels. Most of Amalfi hotels are located in the noisy old Town, accessible by climbing long stairs; some others are located on the highway to Positano, so you will need to take the bus, a taxi or your car in order to reach the city, driving down one of the busiest roads in Italy! ... more less
