Superb 9.2 From 19 reviews

Exceptional 10.0
Highly recommended
Great location!! The staff were responsive & helpful. It just turned out that they had not replaced the batteries for the heater/air conditioner so we had one rather chilly night until that was done. Other than that -- excellent place to stay. Cozy, but with everything we needed to make it a comfortable place.

The best location, value, and assistance.
Amazing. The best possible place to stay in Siracusa, down the street from the temple of Apollo, close to parking, and excellent value for money. This was the best place my parents and I stayed, with wonderful, responsive assistance from Ivan and Ruggero who kindly gave us a bottle of local wine to share. Highly recommended.

Very Good 8.0
Good Location and Great Roof Terrace
Enjoyed our stay despite some pretty rainy weather. The roof terrace would have been fantastic for sitting out although the wooden steamers could have done with cushions. To be fair, those might have been available on request. The apartment is very handy for everything and has everything you will need. Extremely small shower compartment made washing a bit of a challenge, but everything else was ideal.

Exceptional 10.0
Great stay in Ortigia
The apartment is well positioned in Ortigia, close to the Temple of Apollo, cafes and shops near the water. We had some very good food and a well-priced boat trip around the island.

Exceptional 10.0
Very helpful owner.
The apartment was very clean and well equipped. The owner was very helpful in letting us store luggage at the apartment and meeting us even though we were later than we had advised him. The location is very good both for Ortiga and for the main town of Syracusa. The outside terrace was good for eating outside.
