A very enjoyable stay with only a couple of negatives

  • 4 of 5

On the positive side, this apartment is very comfortable with nice modern furniture. It is well located within an easy walk to Ortigia. Importantly, there are cafes, restaurants and a good supermarket very close by.

On the negative side, parking is not as easy as it might seem from the other reviews. There is no parking associated with the apartment so you are taking pot luck on getting a spot on the street. Sometimes that meant parking a couple of blocks away. Also, the ceiling in the apartment is very low with some beams leaving a clearance of just over 1.8 metres. If you are much taller than 1.8 metres, this apartment is not for you. I am 1.8 metres so it was OK for me most of the time. The laundry has a very low ceiling though.

The major negative for me was that the apartment was directly above a restaurant that operates on both sides of the lane in which the apartment is located. Last night (Saturday), they were making noise until 1:30 am. This causes a problem in the bedroom that fronts the lane. There is another bedroom which faces the courtyard in which the problem might not be so severe. Also despite what the website says, Salvatore does not speak English. It is possible to communicate by was of text, using Google Translate.

Other than the above issues, and especially at the price, this apartment provides very good value for money.

Smart apartment close to Ortiga

  • 4 of 5

This is a very comfortable modern two bedroom two bathroom apartment. It has been well designed and furnished and would comfortably accomodate 2 couples. It is within walking distance to bus and train station. There is a great restaurant downstairs who even lent us some wine glasses. Would be better with both wine glasses and ironing facilities

A great apartment in a good location.

  • 4 of 5

Central location with a well equipped property. There is some building work going on around, and the apartment would benefit from an outside area to sit and have a drink after sightseeing. Overall though, Siracusa is fabulous and a wonderful place to visit. I would definitely come back

Perfect apartment in the perfect spot!

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is in perfect condition and offer so much more than you would expect for a place at this price. There is a place to park the car right in front of the door. There is a supermarket close by and some good restaurants. And you're only 5 minutes walking from ortigia island. Salvatore is a very kind and responsible host. I will definitely go back there next time.

i wish all apartments were like this :)

  • 5 of 5

It was the best accommodation we’ve ever had in Sicilia!

Apartment is smart maintened and comfortable. Everything is new, ideally clean.

Spacious and comfortable shower, that is rarity for Sicilia. There is a private shower in each room, so you don’t have to cross common space than returning from shower!

Good noise-proofing.

Location is perfect. Ortigia, railway and bus station are near at hand.

The owner Salvatore was very kind and attentive to us. Responsible and punctual :)

At first day he kept free parking place for us from the morning till our arrival in the evening.

Thank you, Salvatore! It was a pleasure to stay here.

Это были лучшие аппартаменты, какие мы только встречали на Сицилии. Квартира новая, идеально чистая. Все так продумано и комфортно - как будто делалось для себя. Все есть, и даже чайник (кто был в Италии - поймет))). Удобный просторный душ, что для Сицилии редкость. Вкаждой спальне свой душ, вход прямо из спальни.

Звукоизоляция хорошая, что мы смогли оценить по сравнению с другими местами проживания на Сицилии. Аппартаменты идеальны для двух семейных пар.

Расположение квартиры - просто супер. Центр всего! Лучше, чем Ортиджия, особенно для тех, кто планирует пользоваться вокзалом / автовокзалом. Бесплатная и платная парковка рядом. Для тех, кто на машине - Ортиджия вообще не вариант.

Хозяин Сальваторе - ответственный, пунктуальный, тактичный. В день заезда занял для нас место на бесплатной парковке и держал до вечера. Наше пребывание в Сиракузах было праздником, и уезжать отсюда не хотелось!
