“Lovely stay at this small family hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 April 2014

I stayed at this hotel for a conference about a year ago and never got around to leaving that good review for this lovely place, great value for money. This is a fairly small family hotel with lots of character, the rooms are classic and very clean. They don't have a restaurant but one of the best in Spoleto is just outside (next to the Roman amphitheatre). Breakfast is the typical Italian selection of pastries, etc and was served in a nice vaulted room. The staff is very nice and helpful, I really enjoyed my stay even though it was business rather than leisure. The old town Spoleto is very nice and worth a visit if you are in the area.

A lovely hotel on a secluded courtyard in the center of Spoleto. The breakfast, with hot croissants, was excellent. The rooms are a bit small, but perfectly nice. The only criticism would be the lack of bed-side lights/tables in our room: I don't know whether the problem is generalized.

This small hotel is just off Piazza della Libertà in the old part of Spoleto. We arrived by train and took the local minibus (Route D) that climbs the mountain through ancient narrow streets and stops in the Piazza. Arriving by car is more difficult because of traffic restrictions, the terrain and lack of parking spaces.

The staff were friendly and helpful. They don't speak a great deal of English so you'll need either some basic Italian or a lot of patience. The room was clean and functional although the decoration was tired, especially in the bathroom. It was a reasonable size by European standards although Americans might find it rather small. A buffet breakfast of coffee with bread and pastries was included. There's a pizzeria/bar directly across the road for anyone requiring a more substantial breakfast.

The hotel is set back from the road with a courtyard so that the rooms at the front are the quietest. Those at the back overlook the outside tables of the restaurant next door and tend to be noisy before midnight.

Room Tip: Rooms at the front are quieter.

I enjoyed staying at this small hotel in the historical center. The rooms are tiny, but clean and modern.
Pros: location, friendly staff, no free wifi, minibar, nice soap
Cons: parking (we parked quite far away because the area is ZTL), breakfast, shower (no water power)

We have stayed at this charming hotel many times, the staff are wonderful and the food in their restaurant is stunning.
The views from the upper rooms are stunning.
I hope we return soon

Don't expect luxury but enjoy a clean, spacious room. Some have balconies. My 2nd stay here. Great place and would stay here again. Nicely located in the upper town. Friendly service but don't expect a lot of English. I enjoyed using my limited Italian. Breakfast was basic but well done in the Italian way. Drive to the hotel, back into the alley, park, drop your luggage, get the parking pass, and go to the parking lot. My only issue this time was that the parking pass never worked. It was graciously replaced by the hotel but even after replacement, it did not work at the big parking lot. When I left, it even stumped the parking staff.

Room Tip: There is no elevator.

3* hotels in Italy are hit or miss. The Aurora is a very good one. The hotel is clean, bright, and obviously well-cared for. I found the rooms to be nice, clean and quiet. The included breakfast is pretty standard...rolls, cold cereal, ham and cheese. Cable TV, but no channels in any language other than Italian. Don't expect much from the bar...we were told they only had red or white wine to offer when we asked for a drink, even though all the other bottles of alcohol were plainly visible! You can't beat the location in the center of town.

Room Tip: Room 56 has a double bed and a separate twin bed in its own alcove.
