THIS WAS THE WORST EXPERIENCE IN A HOTEL IN MY ENTIRE LIFE Despite we had agreed with the owner on the phone a late check in at a precise time, we did not find anyone when we arrived and she was extremely unpolite at the phone Her justification was "I was hungry so I left and I am not coming...

During our trip we have decided to stay in Ortigia for 2 nights. The hotel we chose for its suitable place turned out to be awful. When booking online we were told that there would be a bathroom in each room. In the hotel we were told that there was a bathroom on the floor not in th room. The... More

Aurora Hotel is a lovely hotel with great location in the center & beautiful view. The hotel staff was friendly and helpful. Our room was spacious and very clean with great sea view. The breakfast need to improve!

Written free parking exists about hour of walking. After arrival we have been to, there is no room for booked price but higher. No more words. But location nice... It's the center of old town. Don't take your car with you.

It is true this palazzo has seen better times. We spent 4 happy nights in room 12 ans are back in room 21. Sea view, great location, good prices, clean. I am sure there are better places in ortigia. It is true that when Rosa is not here, nobody is in charge. I still recommend the place

perfect view, close to the centre, the front desk lady manager very nice and helpful BUT one problem related to breakfast: it is not provided on the hotel premises but you get a ticket from the reception and must go to Bar Centrale in Piazza Archimede!

Please read previous reviews-they are all true! Apart from being in a good location, there is absolutely nothing else to say that is good about the B & B. They don't even serve breakfast. The place is dilapidated and filthy. You have been warned!

I chose this hotel for its location near the swimming place in Syracuse. I walked in with no reservation and negotiated a fair price, so on that front I have no complaints. But the hotel itself badly needs maintenance. Broken shower cubicle, rusty dirty balcony, missing light bulbs (the whole hotel needs more light), old mattress, scuff marks on the... More

We spent 4 nights here which were prepaid otherwise we would have left after 1. On arrival the receptionist tried to persuade us to share a room despite having booked and paid for two and only complied when we insisted. My room had not been properly cleaned - the floor was dusty and waste bin not emptied. The bathroom had... More
