Somewhat disappointing

  • 2 of 5

Stayed 4 weeks. Some things not as advertised: bedroom #2 locked, washing machine on another floor, Wi-Fi very unreliable, oven broken, no bicycles (request in advance?), terrace up one floor & not furnished, coffee maker is stove-top moka (only for espresso).

Missing starter items: bottle of water (since tap water is announced as undrinkable), plastic bags lining trash bins, starter amounts dish detergent & toilet bowl cleaner.

Repairs/upgrades needed: leaky kitchen faucet leaves puddle on countertop, dining area lighting very dark, light bulbs missing/burnt out in interior hallway, bathroom sink cracked, bathtub so tiny that shower curtain hugs you, stoppers/plugs don’t fit any of 3 bathroom drains, water heater too small if more than 2 people, cookware flimsy, 1 coffee mug, no coffee cups (only espresso), no teapot, TV in dining area difficult & few channels (TV in bedroom easy, many channels), if returning at night beware since timed stairwell light shuts off before you reach your floor.

Must like to walk: 73 steps up to apartment, 20-30 min. to dining district (Ortigia), 6-7 min. to supermarket.

Reasonably clean, good sunlight, double bed comfortable, lots of storage in main bedroom, large fridge.

Très agréable séjour à Syracuse

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons séjourné 2 semaines dans l'appartement de Salvatore. Nous étions accompagnés de nos deux enfants âgés de 20 et 23 ans. L'appartement était tout à fait conforme au descriptif et surtout idéalement placé. L'appartement est très propre, très rationnel, avec des chambres spacieuses et bien climatisées (ce que nous avons bien apprécié en période de canicule!) Il y a également beaucoup de rangements. Des balcons, nous avions une vue imprenable sur la Place Sainte-Lucie, sur Ortygia et sur la mer. La terrasse privative située au dernier étage permet d'avoir une vue à 360°, magnifique au coucher du soleil, comme au lever.

Nous n'avons eu aucun problème pour nous garer en bas de l'immeuble ou dans la rue perpendiculaire (selon l'ensoleillement). Il y a toujours beaucoup de place. Le quartier est très agréable et l'ambiance familiale.

Quant à Salvatore, nous ne le remercierons jamais assez pour la gentillesse dont il a fait preuve à notre égard, allant même jusqu'à nous aider alors que nous avions un problème avec le véhicule de location. Il a passé beaucoup de temps à nous aider. Il a fait tout son possible pour nous rendre le séjour agréable. Et c'est avec une certaine tristesse que nous avons dû quitter cet endroit. Les Siciliens sont des gens adorables. Nous conseillons vivement cette location... et nous y retournerions volontiers!

Helle, geräumige Ferienwohnung mit schöner Aussicht

  • 3 of 5

Die Wohnung ist hell, geräumig, liegt im 3. Stock, die Lage ist gut, alles leicht zu Fuß erreichbar. Das Auto kann man stehen lassen und man findet problemlos einen Parkplatz. WLAN war sehr gut.

Das Bad ist renovierungsbedürftig und das Geschirr in der Küche war nicht besonders sauber. Für Urlauber im Winter nicht empfehlenswert, weil die ganze Wohnung sehr kalt ist. Es gibt eine Klimaanlage im Schlafzimmer die nur „lauwarm“ heizt.

Très bon séjour!

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé 5 jours dans l'appartement de Salvatore et avons beaucoup apprécié sa situation assez centrale ainsi que la vue sur Ortigia et la mer bien sûr! Salavatore est serviable et disponible et nous a confié un appartement bien équipé et très propre. Un petit bémol au niveau de l'eau chaude car le cumulus est petit : au delà de 2 personnes, c'est problématique, surtout à cette saison! Nous recommanderons cette location.

Recommended place

  • 4 of 5

We were very happy to spend 9 nights with our 3 children in this nice appartement. It is well located in the city near everything (post, bank, Ortegia, ..) and safe. The parking is free and easy to find. The flat is also well equiped and comes with air conditionning in each rooms - enjoyable.

There is no lift but the panoramic view worth it for your holidays - Santa Lucia, Ortegia and sea view.

Salvatore is nice and serious. He was always available for anything needed.

We definitely recommend it !!

Tolle Wohnung mit Blick auf das Meer

  • 5 of 5

Wir hatten einen super tollen Urlaub.Die Wohnung ist super zentral gelegen,jede Sehenswürdigkeit ist schnell zu Fuß erreichbar.Das schönste jedoch ist wenn man morgens die Fenster öffnet und direkt auf das Meer schauen kann!!!

Der Vermieter selbst ist sehr freundlich und hilfsbereit.

Im nächsten Jahr werden wir wieder her kommen
