“Stunning views, functional room and a little warm....”
Reviewed 2 June 2014 via mobile

Hotel Aurora had ample car parking behind it up a short ramp. The room was oppressively hot when we arrived but the window opens. Shower took ages to warm up. Clean, basic & cheap! Sadly a bit shabby but there is a great pizzeria opposite which is beautiful.

Reviewed 27 August 2013

We stayed here for a night during a road trip through the alps and were very dissapointed given its 3 star rating. The lady who seems to run the place took our passports off us as soon as we got there and refused to give them back till the we left the following day! This did not give us a good feeling about the hotel from the start. Most of the corriders were dark, presumably to save on electricity. The room reminded us of a hostel with very old furniture that didn't match. The photos show a nice looking pool but it was not next to the hotel it was across a busy road and we were not even told we could use it! The breakfast was basic did not taste very nice. Its not even close to the centre of chiavenna. Overall very tired and needs either a major refurbishment or to close down!

Allow me to start this review talking about the city: Chiavenna is adorable and this is already a good reason for you to stay in this hotel. You have lots of choices in this part of Italy. We were coming back from Switzerland and wanted a place not too far from the lakes. We were so happy with our choice. The rooms are very clean. Ours had a private sauna and wasn't tight at all. The breakfast was very good and the staff was OK. Even if your destination is just Lake Como, consider this not so expensive option.

Reviewed 30 July 2007

We stayed at the Hotel Aurora for just one night following our hike over the Splugen pass (Via Spluga). It was certainly clean, and that's the most positive thing we could find about it. The hotel's website suggests the whole complex be situated in a garden - but it well hides the very busy road that separates the main building from the pool and pizzeria that belong to the hotel. Being two female friends we had asked for a room with separate beds and were given one in an annex building somewhere in the back, window opening directly onto a parking lot, and on the same level, too, so anyone could easily climb in through the window. We slept with closed blinds in the baking July heat (no a/c). The beds were basic, the whole room had 'children' written all over it. It certainly bore no resemblance whatsoever to the stylish rooms shown on the website. We never checked out the pool as a note in the elevator informed us that a very stiff added charge of 4 Euros would apply. The staff were a bit brusque but helpful enough, I must say. They did provide a shuttle service to and from the train station, although that took an e-mail, a phone call made by the Splugen tourist office and finally one from us when we had arrived in Chiavenna by the only bus and at the only time we could have arrived anyway. To sum it up - just don't go there.

  • Liked — Cleanliness met our expectations.
  • Disliked — Everything else.
