Not a pleasant place to stay.

  • 2 of 5

Syracuse is not a beautiful city and this was certainly not an attractive part of Syracuse. Antonio, the owner was prompt and friendly but he could use some better help in keeping the apartment clean, less cluttered and useable. The apartment had a stale smell, the toilet seat was off a hinge, the bed and bath linens were old and tired, the kitchen was cluttered with food--some in open packages and the cupboards were not clean. We did not feel comfortable making meals here which was disappointing. The rooftop deck should have been a sanctuary with its beautiful views, but the furniture was covered with filthy, torn coverings and one of the lounge chairs was broken. The photos on the website were clearly taken some time ago when things were newer, cleaner and much less cluttered. There was no street parking close by. We have stayed in many, many VRBOs both homes and apartments with HomeAway, but this one did not live up to the description and photos. We wish we had booked a vacation rental in Ortygia since that is where we spent all our time. Ortygia is definitely worth a visit and was about a half mile walk away.

An excellent apartment!

  • 5 of 5

Antonio's apartment was great! It was very well located, very close to the train station but not affected by the noise, and equidistant to Ortigia Island and the Ruins or the Greek and Roman theaters.

His terrace, in fact, is quite special with lots of space, a covered portion and lovely views of the sea. However, the rest of the apartment is good too! The bedroom is nice and roomy, the bed very comfortable and it also has views. The kitchen is well stocked for cooking and he even has a washing machine.

We really enjoyed our stay. Thanks, Antonio!

Beautiful apartment in a wonderful location

  • 5 of 5

We are a family with a child of 5 y.o. and stayed in the apartment from end July during one week.

The apartment is located in a nice place , just 10 min walking to Ortigia, the ols centre of Siracuse . It was never a problem to find a parking place near the building . The apartment is very cosy and is very well and tastefully equiped by all necessary things and even more . The terrace with a view is great.

Antonio, the owner , is a very helpful person . He welcomes his guests with some first needed shoppings like water, fruits, milk , bread. Communication was perfect .

After our scheduled 1 week stay in Antonio's apartment we left to another place in Taormina , whereafter we missed Siracuse and Antonio's apartment so much , that we wished to return !

We would absolutely recommed this place to each person : with or without kids . And we would like to come back !

Thanks, Antonio !

Ideal location for sightseeing/restaurants/shopping

  • 5 of 5

We stayed 4 nights in Antonio's apartment, which is a very well equipped, well maintained penthouse on the 9th floor - so there were brilliant views from the large terrace and we were not overlooked at all. We walked everywhere as Ortigia, with it's marvelous baroque buildings was 10 to 15 minute walk away, the Greek amphitheatre was just up the road (We thought the entrance fee was excessive at €10 each especially as the Roman theatre was closed - no-one told us this until we were inside the archaeological park!) and designer shops on the doorstep. Antonio was the perfect host. There was a large bowl of fruit awaiting us on arrival and when we foolishly left some things in the apartment when we left, Antonio brought them to the airport in Catania for us before we flew out - incredible service! Thank you so much. He also recommended a restaurant within 5 minute walk which served amazing steaks. In fact there are loads of places to eat and drink in Ortigia and Syracuse, but this restaurant was the best we found. We had a rental car as we were touring Sicily and this was a bit of a liability in Syracuse but we managed to park for free in the street near the apartment for the 4 days we were there. The weather was perfect in early October - 25 to 28 degrees C. We loved Syracuse and the apartment and hope to return sometime - maybe for a long weekend break.
