Staff, Enzo, very nice. Hotel on main street but not effected by traffic noise. Inside one sees it was once a Villa but remodelled to contemporary comfort. Nice pedestrian walk way around corner with awesome Amalfi Cathedral with remains of Jesus 1st deciple, St. James. Parking is quite an experience 10 or so walk around a curve in a mountain but as there are 100s of tunnels in Italy, they have a pedestrian one to avoid a street with no sidewalks. Great stay & would do again and recommend to friends. Fantastic breakfast with patio looking at the sea.
The Hotel Aurora was a great find. The BEST location possible in Almalfi ! right on the sea front with fantastic views of the marina and town. Really quiet and peaceful, but within a couple of min's walk to the busy main centre. Spotless rooms and very helpful and friendly staff. The location made it so easy to hop on buses or boats to all the other wonderful places to visit in the area such as Positano and Ravello. There were so many lovely restaurants serving beautiful fresh pasta or fish. The hotel made recommendations and offered discounts in many of the local restaurants. The Aurora offers breakfast, which was popular with other guests. We are not really breakfast people so never used it, but the smell every morning was delicious. Prior to our arrival we contacted Andrea at the hotel to arrange a private taxi transfer. The service offered was seamless, our driver was excellent and waiting for us on arrival and departure to Naples Airport.

Hotel Aurora is situated in one of the most charming parts of Amalfi - right on the sea front and just a few minutes walk …More
This hotel stay was spectacular. While the hotel is about a 10 minute walk from town, the view from the rooms is easily the best on the coast. The hotel staff are very accommodating, the free breakfast is delicious, and the overall stay is wonderful

Great location while if visiting Vatican City. Staff is great, lobby, restaurant and rooms are very clean and functional.
Excellent restaurants next door. There is no parking at the hotel but there is one just three blocks away and hotel has special overnight rate for guests.
Whenever I think of this hotel I remember the beautiful red and purple flowers hanging from its terraces. :-)
Our room was spacious and had a large, nice private terrace with recliners and view towards the sea. Staff was friendly and accommodating, and the breakfast they offered (extra charge) was pretty good.
You can get to downtown Amalfi by following the road for about 1.5 km, but there are good restaurants along the way much closer to the hotel, as well. While the road is pretty narrow (sometimes buses have to wait for opposite traffic ahead of tight switchbacks) and there are several spans without sidewalks, you can navigate reasonably easily with a little extra care.
Within a couple hundred meters along the road (but this time going in the opposite direction of downtown) there is a gated entry from where a few hundred steps down the stairs take you to a beautiful private beach on the sea. Pay attention to the closing hour, though, as the exit at the top of the stairs is locked for the night in early evening and some people were known to have been locked inside along the years. The good news is that there are ways out that don't involve escalating walls and/or crossing barbed wire fences. ;-) Call the hotel if that happens to you!
Parking at the hotel is not cheap, but parking along the street in Italy and especially around tourist attractions -- if you can find a free spot -- is not exactly safe: most cars are dinged or scratched. The fee is worth the peace of mind.
"Nice hotel with a great view and close to Amalfi"
Small hotel within walking distance to Amalfi center and great view of the coast. If you don't want to walk you can take the bus just outside the hotel
The hotel sits right on the edge of a cliff. The room was a studio size but appropriate for us being a couple and taking in consideration the location of being built on a cliff. The view from the room and especially from the dining area was spectacular. Nothing like sitting sipping a glass of wine or a cold beer overlooking the bay.
Breakfast was comparable to other places.
Staff was great especially Carlo who was very gracious in providing answer and suggestions to all our questions.
Parking is at a premium in the area but was able to park at a parking lot very close to the hotel for a fee.
We were given the Maestrale Unit. This was a nice quiet unit on the bottom level. It was a spacious with a comfortable bed, cooking facilities and a clean, usable bathroom. The Amalfi Holiday Resort is paradise away from the business of outside. It is easy to find and get to. When you walk up the stairs and go through the doors to the complex, you arrive in a green garden oasis. I would recommend this place and if I was holidaying on the Amalfi Coast soon. I would definitely book a stay here again.
A charming cluster of pastel houses, shops, cafés and watchtowers, Amalfi seems little more than a village. However it was a great naval power and a wealthy trading republic in medieval times. Its dramatic setting in jagged cliffs cloaked in vineyards is best seen from a boat. Amalfi’s star turn is a gorgeous cathedral with great bronze doors and lacy cloisters. The nearby village of Atrani is quiet and pretty, with a fine Byzantine church.
