This roomy apartment is located right in the heart of Ortigia which makes it a terrific location. There is a food market, bakery, and many restaurants very close by. There is lots of natural sunlight and a small balcony. There were only two of us so we did not use the Murphy bed. We rented during the winter and the central heat worked well and was much appreciated. There is a bar/restaurant with an entrance off the courtyard. On one night of our stay, we heard loud talking in the courtyard for several hours. On other nights, it was closed and quiet. The owners were easy to work with. Overall, our stay in Ortigia was very enjoyable and we would recommend this apartment.
