We had not booked anywhere to stay in Syracuse, and usually would check trip advisor for reviews beforehand. This time we had parked our rental car and decided to walk into a few hotels to see what the price and availability was. Hotel Aurora was the first place we walked into and the owner was really helpful showing us around the available rooms which were on the top floor (all rooms on the floor below had been taken). The rooms were beautiful with sea views and were very spacious with high ceilings. We thought the price offered for the last minute booking was very reasonable, infact the same price as what we had paid for a B&B outside of Syracuse in the middle of nowhere.
We loved having breakfast in great cafe down the street with a nice view of the fountain, and we enjoyed our stay so much we extended it to another night.
To be fair there were little things that could improve this place, such as minor fixes to ensure the shower head had a holder, and the bathroom door handle could have been fixed, however for the price and location we could not have been happier. Plus free parking so close by.
Ortigia was our favourite place in Sicily, so beautiful in the evening and so many great restuarants, a perfect place to swim so close to the hotel, and great running routes in the evening, just wished we could have stayed longer, we will be back and we would definitely choose to stay at hotel Aurora again.
