“Fabulous location but the studio needs a little upgrading”
Reviewed 2 September 2017 for a stay in August 2017

The studio is located on three levels above a fairly posh restaurant on the pedestrian only path towards the tip of Ortygia and looking west over the huge bay. The location is perfect and convenient for all of Ortygia and with easy access to Syracusa. The views from the balcony are fantastic and from the roof terrace (fourth storey) they are stunning.
The studio is fairly well equipped if a little tired. However the kitchen in a cupboard and the bathroom really let it down and need a refresh.
The bedroom is up a very steep flight of metal stairs and the roof terrace is accessed via a retracting heavy metal stair and a heavy metal trapdoor - so you need to be nimble! The top but one step of the roof ladder is loose (another maintenance job required).
There is no sign on the door of the apartment and as we collected the key from the restaurant we didn't know which was ours.
If you can live with these little problems then we would recommend as good value for the area - and the location really is fantastic.

What a beautiful place ! The location is perfect. The views take your breath away and the hosts are brilliant. So central to everything you need, beautiful architecture, sea, shops, restaurants, historic places of interest. The apartment is beautiful, waking up to the sea every morning is such an experience. Clean and very comfortable, caters for all your needs and has an amazing roof top terrace where the view is magical.
Perfect apartment in a wonderful place!

“Wonderfull place, wonderfull host”
Reviewed 13 September 2014 for a stay in September 2014

person found this review helpful

We stayed here beginning of September 2014. The location is wonderful, when you open the doors this is the view you get! Nanni picked us up and showed us around and gave us good tips. The place itself is cosy and functional. At night not too much noise. Downstairs you will find an excellent restaurant.
-Unfortunately- this area is limited for cars from out of town, the nearest place to find parking is a 24h paid parking garage at 15 minute walk. For loading and unloading the car we just drove very close to the house.
All in all a place to come back one day!
