good rental with a few caveats

  • 3 of 5

This was the first apartment my husband and I rented in our weeklong trip through Sicily. Salvatore, the owner who was always so responsive prior to our arrival, showed up 30 minutes late than our agreed upon entry time into the apartment. Additionally, at the time of our arrival, there was a couple cleaning the apartment. We were asked to come back later so they could finish cleaning the apartment. It was quite odd and not the reception we were expecting. Other issues concerned the the lack of parking in the area. We spent quite a bit of time trying to locate a legal spot to park our car on our 2nd night there. And then there is the issue of the noise. There is a restaurant at the end of the street, which I now see mentioned in a different traveler review, that had a large and very loud private party on our first night there. Needless to say, we weren't able to sleep until the revelry ended, probably around 2AM. While this isn't the owner's fault, future travelers should be warned that you may not be able to sleep here due to the noise.

Regarding the apartment itself, it is quite nice. It was very clean and well maintained. We really wanted to give this rental a better review.

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.
