“Good and bad points about this apartment”
Reviewed 1 October 2015 for a stay in September 2015

people found this review helpful

Good Points:
Terrace
Living & Dining Area

Bad Points
Bedroom - dark and stuffy with a toilet (for use for urine only) as said the sign above the toilet bowl written in black marker pen. The smell emanating from this toilet made the bedroom un-useable. It was also along a corridor off the kitchen which is not made clear from the website/photographs. We slept on the fold down bed in the living area.
Kitchen
Dark and dingy, old tiled counters which maybe were authentic but must have been a haven for germs.

For what we paid for this accommodation we were most disappointed with the bedroom in particular. On our arrival Mr Gentile asked if we could leave on our day of departure at 9:30am as he had other guests arriving, to which we agreed. On the morning of our departure we had gone out for breakfast and returned to the apartment at 8:50am to do a final check on our packing and have a last seat on the terrace, as we were entering the courtyard Mr Gentile was on his way up to the apartment, came in with us and proceeded to usher us out as fast as possible, which was quite rude. One other thing was the sun loungers on the terrace (there were none), I called the owner who told me the last tourist had broken them and then came up with 1 lounger which had seen better days. Two days before our departure he brought up a brand new lounger (we had booked for 10 nights) so this was a little late in the day.

The location was great.

“great location”
Reviewed 9 October 2014 for a stay in September 2014

Couldn't have wished for a better location in Ortigia. Very spacious and comfortable apartment. There are a number of outside steps to get to the apartment but nothing too strenuous. Wonderful, relaxing view of the harbour and boats from the terrace. Signor Gentile couldn't have been more welcoming and helpful - a delightful gentleman. Apartment is very close to restaurants (check out l'avante and Perbacco) numerous good bars and so on. Thank you Signor Gentile and also thanks to Lilla and Maximo who helped with the booking and taxis to and from Catania airport (well worth the cost)

“Great apartment with stunning terrace views”
Reviewed 14 September 2014 for a stay in September 2014

A very spacious and elegant apartment, sympathetically restored historic building just off the beautiful Duomo square. You gain access through a small private courtyard,very secure and up two flights of outside stairs. The apartment has lovely high ceilings, marble floors, it hasn't been restored to within an inch of its life, lots of character and nice pieces of art around the place.
The terrace and the stunning views are probably the highlight of staying here, there is even an outside shower, which I used everyday, great experience. (Not overlooked) there is also an inside shower. There is a large table where you can eat on the terrace or if it's too hot another large dining table just inside. When you leave the apartment you go back onto the main square, which just takes your breath away every time.
There are many restaurants and bars within 5 mins walk, the bar / restaurant just outside has a front row seat for people watching, a beer with nibbles is only 3.50 euros.
Great food market about 10 minutes walk away, which I used on a few days, fresh seabass for 4 euros and delicious large prawns, lots of quality fruit and veg.
I found the owner helpful and reliable as was the agent Lila, the owner lives next door.
The only negatives for some people might be the stairs, the bedroom has a good fan but was a little warm on a couple of nights.
A very enjoyable stay.

Liked best: The terrace and location.
Liked least: Although very airy could be warm in the afternoon, it does have AC but it's a very large apartment. Not a huge proble.
