Large spacious apartment,...clean and comfortable,...50 feet from the Piazza Archimedes and very close to the Piazza Duomo on the beautiful Island of Ortigia. For anyone familiar with the city of Siracusa, this is a most desirable location. Our host Gianluca was extremely helpful and accommodating and provided for all of our needs. Parking is a manageable distance away (like most of the hotels on Ortigia) and he came and got us to lead us to the apartment. He provided a map and several recommendations for eating, sightseeing, super market, laundry and browsing. The kitchen and bathroom were modern and well equipped for any need. Beds were comfortable, furnishings tasteful, air conditioners in each room and there was high definition TV. In addition, the cost was a tremendous value. Unfortunately, we received a parking ticket on the last night there (our negligence) and Gianluca even paid it for us since our flight left too early for us to do it. Without a doubt on our next visit to Siracusa we would seek out Gianluca's apartment and will highly recommend it to our friends and family.

We spent a week in this wondeful place, right in the center of ancient Siracusa, two steps from Dome, tasting excellent Sicily flavours. The wheather was very good even If it was september. The house is the top: there was every thing we need and all was perfectly clean. The parking was not far and we will repeat the experience to visit the rest of Sicily
Fully furnished apartament in the best Siracusa' place (Ortigia). The house is nice, comfortable and very spacious.
The owner is a very kind guy. We had a great stay there for two weeks.
The price is cheap compared to the services you jave.
No laundry, but air conditioning, good kitchen and huge shower.
A spacious, clean and attractive flat in the heart of Ortigia from where we made day trips to Noto and Catania by bus. We found the flat comfortable and with adequate heating in one of the coldest festive periods for some years. We shopped in the fantastic local market and prepared dishes in the reasonably well equipped kitchen (includes microwave). The beds and bedding were good, the bathroom was fine (includes hairdryer) and the sitting/dining room comfortable (with Wi-Fi). Gianluca was very friendly, welcoming and gave good local advice. Overall, v.good value.
We ate in Sicilia in Tavola, Cavour 28; Sicily Pizzeria, Cavour 67; the Osteria in via Mirabella; and Apollonion Osteria da Carlo, via Carmelo Campisi 18; all good but avoid Café Minerva, in via Roma.
