Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Aurora Verona
Third trip in six months - love it!
This is our third trip to Verona and staying at the Hotel Aurora in six months. I wrote a review on tripadvisor on 15 Jan 06 (see below) and I said we would go back and we have! This time round we booked in advance to see Aida in the Roman Arena - word of advice, if you want to see an Opera, book your accommodation first as rooms are hard to get. And, of course, I would highly recommend the Aurora.
This time we stayed in a room on the top floor without a view over Piazza Erbe but with a rooftop view. It was exceptionally quiet, light and did have AC (a must in a Veronese summer). It also had a little room off the bed area which could be used for children if necessary (we just used it to dump our luggage). Then we moved to a room with a view over the piazza (Room 9) which has that magical view. Also, a brand new reverse cycle AC unit which is very effiicient.
Very friendly and helpful staff (though no porter service so if you have problems with stairs be aware that you will have to climb one floor before you can take the elevator).
The breakfasts which are available most of the year round are very generous. Continental style buffet with prosciutto, cheese, fresh fruits, breads, yoghurt, cereal, cakes, etc. Even a glass of proscecco for each guest!
This hotel is a very good 3 star. Nothing fancy, but everything is very clean, good sized rooms and the beds are kingsize (which is fantastic in a small hotel). Little things need attention - a wonky tap in the bathroom, a shower hose that is coming loose, but these are very minor when you get such a good room in a fantastic location for a very reasonable price. Highly recommended!
Having read the reviews and the suggestion about the rooms over looking Piazza Erbe. We booked and asked for a room with the view, and we got it. A very plesent room with aircon. The booking process was a bit funny. When booking for two nights they advised me they didn't take credit cards. I paid the deposit throught the post (€130 per night) and when we checked out, guess what? They take mastecard????? Still a nice hotel in a great location. Don't miss the bar. This also has the view of the piazza. Breakfast room is a bit small.
One final thing. I've never seen a combined toilet and bidet. Only in Italy.
Italy is so much nicer now they have banned smoking in bars.
Hotel Aurora is a very nice little hotel. It has a great location overlooking the piazza. You can walk to eat and have nightlife right at your fingertips if you want it. We (party of 3) stayed here in July for 150 Euros. We called the day before and made a reservation over the phone but then had to get on the internet and send them our credit card number to secure the reservation. We got to the hotel about 6 PM and parking was hard to find. We had to park pretty far away in a lot due to the amount of people in the piazza for the evening. The room was very clean and had the best shower of our two week trip. The air conditioning was excellent and the room was quiet. The buffet breakfast offers a little of everything and was a nice way to get started for a day of travel. Unfortunately, this was just an overnight stop for us and we didn't get to explore the town. It looked like a pretty fun little town and we wished we had more time to spend here. The hotel was more pricey than others we stayed in during our travels in Italy but I would definitely stay here again.
Great Value, Excellent Location
Must surely have the best location of any hotel in Verona - right on the Piazza Erbe (some early morning street noise, but nothing that would stop us staying there again). Simple but good quality breakfast, with cereals, juices, yoghurts and a range of meats and cheeses (and make sure you ask to have breakfast on the terrace overlooking the Piazza). Staff were friendly. Rooms were good - simple and clean, though not huge or luxurious. Would definitely stay there again.
I stayed at the Aurora with my daughter a few years ago. We had walked from the station and very late at night discovered this little gem. It was lovely. The room was small but with the most incredible view ( the church bells did wake me up though). We are going back again this year if we can.
This was a great little hotel - perfect for exploring this wonderful city. We had a room on the 4th floor with a perfect view overlooking the market of Piazza della Erbe, and one of the towers. The room was small and clean, with fresh flowers - which was a nice touch. The bathroom again was small and clean with a good shower. You certainly couldn't beat the location. Breakfast was good with the opportunity (in good weather) of eating out on a balcony overlooking the piazza.
Best Hotel on the trip
We stayed here in May 2001. This was the highlight of our hotel experience in Northern Italy. It would be hard to find a better located hotel, and the double glazing on the windows kept out any hint of noise from the Piazza and markets below. The airconditioning worked well. The beds were nice and firm and the only criticism could be that the room was a bit small. The staff were very helpful and the buffet breakfast was extravaagent. No need for lunch after this !!! The price was reasonable and the only drawback we had was having to sign a pre-booking agreement and send it by fax from the previous hotel we were staying. They had a little terrace where we could congregate with other guests and drink our bottles of wine into the night.
Best hotel in verona
I have been staying at the hotel on business now for the last 12 years, and would recommend it to anyone wanting central place to stay whilst visiting Verona.
Lovely small hotel
We visit Verona often on business and we always stay here. The people are warm and helpful (and English-speaking), the rooms are clean and pleasant, and the breakfast is great. It's not a luxury hotel, but it's well located on the Piazza Erbe, right next to an ATM machine, shopping, and plenty of restaurants. I love it.
Fabulous and Inexpensive
My wife and I spent 4 or 5 days in this lovely little hotel in February of 2001. We stayed in one of the rooms at the very top of the building, and while we didn't have an en suite bathroom, it was only 10 feet away and since no one else was on the top floor, it might as well have been out own private bath. The room was small, but perfectly reasonable, with a sink in one corner, a TV with cable or satellite, and the bed was quite comfy. While the room was fine and quiet, the most wonderful thing about this hotel (besides the very friendly staff) was the breakfast. Sliced meats, cheeses, breads, coffee, juice, and some of the best fruit I have ever eaten--all was free and abundant! It's an inexpensive and great place to stay in the great little city of Verona.

The more Mary and I explored Verona the more surprises we found. As I mentioned last time we had both been craving sushi for several days so we decided to try a restaurant called "Ikai", which after a lot of research seemed to garner nothing but really good reviews. All of the research we did said that reservations were recommended so we made ours at 7:30, early by Italian standards but we didn’t know if sushi ran on a different timetable. Ikai was outside the ...
... looking the lake and back down, and down and round and down!!!!! Taking in stunning views, a walk to a hermitage retreat and monestery and a beautiful Romanesque church. Spent the afternoon in the garden, Al Lago before our final dinner in the hotel. Tomorrow, we head off after breakfast , quick stop off in the town of Salo at the bottom of the lake before returning our trusty Italian stallion hire car ( or similar ) and flight home. Now seems as good a time as any to reveal that ...
... digs that unearthed what are termed early Palaeo-Christian artifacts, many dating back to the mid 4th Century, between the years 362-380. The current churches, which in the case of St. Fermo itself goes back to between 1065 and 1143, were actually built on top of these much earlier churches when they were destroyed by fire or earthquake. The new builders were careful to bury the ...
... after shop selling everything from small jewelry items to giant meat slicers that looked like they must have been made by Ferrari, and of course more beautiful churches.
We found a small out of the way place for lunch and I knew immediately why many people say the food in this area may be the finest in Italy. Mortadella with pistachio for an appetizer, Risotto Amarone, said to be invented here, for lunch and a Valpolicella Classico ...
We said goodbye to the baby sitters, Uncle Anthony (Jungle Gym) and Aunty Tracy (Just a Girl). They went to Florence for 4 days, Tuscany region. Thanks again to them for popping round to baby sit. We did some washing and then went to the pool for a dip, managed to get an early afternoon nap in with the boys. It is extremely hot in Italy Cheryl. ...
