“Very good for the price”
Reviewed 20 August 2012

I was at Albergo Aurora for 3 nights two weeks ago (108,00 euros). At first I was very nervous to book a Hotel that is not 3 or 4 stars in Italy but this small and cosy family hotel surprised me. Staff was really friendly, they even let us use the kitchen to prepare something to eat! Rooms are extremely small but everything works and is very clean. Sheets and towels were changed every day. I would say it is the perfect place for students (like me and my friend) or travelers with a low budget. Not ideal for parents with baby's because there is no elevator to carry everything to the room. It's located in Malcesine's heart. You get out of the hotel and there are thousands of bars, restaurants and shops just in front of you. Unfortunately there's no internet but if you drink something at "Cafe Feudo" (just in front of the hotel) you can use the internet (I bought a 2,5 euro beer and had internet for 4 days) and I had WiFi in my room. Breakfast was actually very good, I was hoping we would get a piece of bread and coffee but we had almost everything. You can have a cappuccino, normal coffee, hot chocolate, juices, eggs, salamis and cheeses, bread, sweets, cakes etc etc! The only thing that bothered me a little was the air conditioner that smelled really bad every time we turned it on. DON'T FORGET that you have to find a place yourself on the Garda Lake to get a tan or swim and it's not that simple. Overall I liked it very much and had as usual a really pleasant time in Malcesine.

I emailed the owner and asked if he had a room spare, he replied saying he did, so I asked if I could reserve the room. On arrival he told he he 'had' a room and now he didn't. We were left in Malcesine at 5pm with no hotel. (Note I am 19 and I was with my 16 year old brother). Luckily a lovely woman at the Hotel Firenze gave us a great room with a balcony, for the same price.

We spend 1 week in Malcesine in this nice small family hotel. We booked it over the GardaPass.com portal by credit card and we get it for 42 Euro per person including half-board. Breakfast wasn't buffet style, but you can get whatever you order: white breads, wholeseed bread, toast, jam, honey, butter, nutella, ham, salami, cheese, croisnat, joghurt, orange juice, espresso, capuccino, cafe latte, tea and milk. For dinner we was going to one of the best restaurants in Malcesine - La Pace! we always get 2 courses (first pasta and secon slice of some meet with potatoes and vegetable salad). Staff wasn't changing the blanks during our stay. We had room in second floor with view to the oposite building on the small square. So also during day we have to turn on the lights... At night there was sometime loudy on street so we can't have open windows and the A/C was turned off. To the beach it is about 500 meters under the castle. I would recommend this hotel to everybody who likes night life :-)

Stayed at this hotel for one week. Small family run hotel. Landlady speaks very little English but is extremely accomodating. Her son, Roberto, does speak English and again is very helpful. Rooms quite small but then I don't go on holiday to spend my days in the room. Very clean. Our room overlooked the square at the front which on our first night was really noisy as there was a football match on and people were in the square outside the hotel cheering, etc - closing the window was very effective and dulled the noise considerably. We were offered a room at the back but preferred to have this room for the views. Recommend you eat at the Gondoliere restaurant to the right of the hotel as this was the best we found - quite expensive but worth it for a treat. Also, the cafe/bar on the right as you leave the hotel had the best service and coffee.

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!!

  • Liked — Clean, central, friendly people, breakfast
  • Disliked — OK for 7 days, No sun tarrace, no lounge area for guests.
