convenient central Ortigia apartment

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this apartment for one month and it was great. It's a very spacious apartment. The rooftop terrace was nice for a morning coffee before it got too hot outside. There were also 3 tiny balconies (big enough for a couple of chairs) to sit and watch the people go by. The location made it easy to walk around to all we wanted to see. There are tourist busses that you can catch a block away that will take to into Siracusa if you don't want to walk and don't have a car. We did not have a car and would probably not have been able to park close by if we did. The train station is about a 20 minute walk if you want to take day trips to some of the other towns in the area.

Overall, we had a great time here. The apartment was perfect for what we wanted and would highly recommend it.

Giuseppina was a great host and she was easy to communicate with. Our deposit was refunded promptly after we left. We appreciated the drive in from the bus station on the day we arrived!

Very good appartment and charming landlady

  • 4 of 5

I stayed at Giusi"s appartment for 3 weeks and thouroughly enjoyed it. The location is perfect, the rooms are big and the terrace has a beautiful view, although you have to climb two floors to get there. Giuseppina is charming and took me on a tour of the little beaches near Siracusa, she's aterrific lady and a great source of information. My only complaint is that the master bedroom's mattress was very soft and gave me a back ache. I would definitely go back and can recommend the appartment.

Owner's Response: Dear Marie Beatrice, I have to give a good report on you, you were a perfect guest! It' s not often tune in to a guest as it was instead for you, a lady with whom to have pleasant conversation and that I feel an old friend. I hope to see you soon, Giusi

Beautiful Ortigia

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week in Siracusa and found this apartment made a wonderful base for exploring the city. It is basic, but air conditioned, functions well and is clean, comfortable and excellently located. The owner is very responsive, though we really had no problems. Excellent value!

location au centre d'ortigia a syracuse

  • 3 of 5

nous voulions un appartement en ville , pour cela , c'était super.

Sauf que là , pour le coup , c'était vraiment trop agité et dès 7h !

le voisin du bas est livreur de bouteilles de gaz , qu'il fait roulé sur le sol !

Les murs tremblaient !

les fenêtres ne sont pas en double vitrage hèlas.....

la salle de bain : pour faire la douche , il faut beaucoup de patiente ! pas de pression ! pas pratique avec des cheveux longs.

sinon l'appart est plutot agréable avec 3 ados , nous avons apprécié la grande cuisine et les balcons.

logement bien situé si vous n'avez pas de voiture : Restaurants , supermarché, pharmacie , la mer......etc.....

Appartement vaste, agréable et bien situé.

  • 4 of 5

Appartement clair et bien réparti pour un groupe. Terrasse privée mais il faut aimer monter des escaliers. Au coeur d'Ortigia donc idéal pour découvrir mais, en contrepartie, un peu bruyant. Une petite épicerie au pied de la maison. Depuis la gare de train / bus, on y parvient par le petit bus municipal n°1, très pratique. Accueil sympathique de Giuseppina. Nous le recommandons.

Super appartement

  • 5 of 5

L'appartement est parfait ! J'y ai séjourné avec 3 amies la semaine du 4 juillet au 11 juillet . Ce fut pour moi mon troisième séjour à ortigia et cette location est de loin la meilleure !

Il y a dans chaque ( grandes )pièces un balcon , la clim ...

La cuisine est sur équipée : four,presse orange , grille pain ... Et même une machine à laver !

Le plus appréciable : une terrasse au dernier étage pour profiter de la fraîcheur très tôt le matin ou tard le soir !

Guisepinna est super gentille et très disponible !

Bref ... Un super séjour !
