The apartment is well located just on Ortigia Island, especially convenient if you are returning an Avis hire car. The apartment itself is up two flights of narrow stairs and difficult if you have heavy suitcases. The terrace is accessed by another flight of stairs outside of the apartment and doesn't really have a sea view.
Although the owner was very helpful, he spoke no English and this did create some problems in understanding many of the quirks of the apartment. There were no instructions in any language in the apartment.
It is only suitable for a maximum of four people and even this would be tight in a very small living area
