“This is a great place from which to enjoy everything Syracuse offers!”
Reviewed October 15, 2015 for a stay in October 2015

person found this review helpful

The apartment is located in the best piazza in Syracuse. The entrance is a stone's throw from the Duomo, so that means you can enjoy it and its beautiful piazza before, or after, all the tour groups fill it up with noise and clamour. The apartment itself is part facing a quiet, leafy courtyard and partly looking out over the beautiful bay. You need to be able to climb steps to access it, and the apartment itself also has a number of steps within it, so if that does not pose a problem for you, everything else will delight you.
It is owned and has been renovated by Sig. Gentile, who lives in the next door flat. He is friendly and welcoming and is a mine of information about Syracuse. The apartment retains lots of atmosphere and character. It is comfortable and is surprisingly large. The main draw is the terrace, which is fantastic! We enjoyed beautiful sunsets, sheltered and sunny lunches and leisurely glasses of wine, sitting outside for hours ( a real bonus after a cool and disappointing English summer).
The apartment is a short walk from numerous restaurants, supermarkets and the unmissable market. Overall I would rate this apartment as excellent for people who do not want to spend hours in the kitchen, but who want to easily reach all that Ortigia has to offer, with the added bonus of a beautiful place to come back to.

“Good and bad points about this apartment”
Reviewed October 1, 2015 for a stay in September 2015
3
people found this review helpful

Good Points:
Terrace
Living & Dining Area

Bad Points
Bedroom - dark and stuffy with a toilet (for use for urine only) as said the sign above the toilet bowl written in black marker pen. The smell emanating from this toilet made the bedroom un-useable. It was also along a corridor off the kitchen which is not made clear from the website/photographs. We slept on the fold down bed in the living area.
Kitchen
Dark and dingy, old tiled counters which maybe were authentic but must have been a haven for germs.

For what we paid for this accommodation we were most disappointed with the bedroom in particular. On our arrival Mr Gentile asked if we could leave on our day of departure at 9:30am as he had other guests arriving, to which we agreed. On the morning of our departure we had gone out for breakfast and returned to the apartment at 8:50am to do a final check on our packing and have a last seat on the terrace, as we were entering the courtyard Mr Gentile was on his way up to the apartment, came in with us and proceeded to usher us out as fast as possible, which was quite rude. One other thing was the sun loungers on the terrace (there were none), I called the owner who told me the last tourist had broken them and then came up with 1 lounger which had seen better days. Two days before our departure he brought up a brand new lounger (we had booked for 10 nights) so this was a little late in the day.

The location was great.

“great location”
Reviewed October 9, 2014 for a stay in September 2014

Couldn't have wished for a better location in Ortigia. Very spacious and comfortable apartment. There are a number of outside steps to get to the apartment but nothing too strenuous. Wonderful, relaxing view of the harbour and boats from the terrace. Signor Gentile couldn't have been more welcoming and helpful - a delightful gentleman. Apartment is very close to restaurants (check out l'avante and Perbacco) numerous good bars and so on. Thank you Signor Gentile and also thanks to Lilla and Maximo who helped with the booking and taxis to and from Catania airport (well worth the cost)

“Great apartment with stunning terrace views”
Reviewed September 13, 2014 for a stay in September 2014

A very spacious and elegant apartment, sympathetically restored historic building just off the beautiful Duomo square. You gain access through a small private courtyard,very secure and up two flights of outside stairs. The apartment has lovely high ceilings, marble floors, it hasn't been restored to within an inch of its life, lots of character and nice pieces of art around the place.
The terrace and the stunning views are probably the highlight of staying here, there is even an outside shower, which I used everyday, great experience. (Not overlooked) there is also an inside shower. There is a large table where you can eat on the terrace or if it's too hot another large dining table just inside. When you leave the apartment you go back onto the main square, which just takes your breath away every time.
There are many restaurants and bars within 5 mins walk, the bar / restaurant just outside has a front row seat for people watching, a beer with nibbles is only 3.50 euros.
Great food market about 10 minutes walk away, which I used on a few days, fresh seabass for 4 euros and delicious large prawns, lots of quality fruit and veg.
I found the owner helpful and reliable as was the agent Lila, the owner lives next door.
The only negatives for some people might be the stairs, the bedroom has a good fan but was a little warm on a couple of nights.
A very enjoyable stay.
