About This Listing
Be Home is a design apartment, recently renovated, in the historic center of Syracuse. It is made up of an living room/ kitchen with a comfortable sofa bed, a bedroom, a bathroom with shower with chromotherapy and a splendid terrace is ideal for couples and young families who want to explore the city and enjoy a nice apartment in complete privacy.
A few meters from the house in fact, are the main monuments that have made Ortigia famous worldwide as Piazza Duomo, Piazza Archimede or the Arethusa's Spring.
We stayed in this lovely flat for four days during our time in Siracusa and have to say both the flat and Davis were perfect for us.
We were met at the piazza Archimedes and walked, via a very cute square with a nice cafe, to the flat and given information on everything we needed; food, bars, attractions, buses etc.
The flat was perfectly placed for Siracusa. No more than a five minute walk for all the restaurants and ten minutes to the piazza duomo and many attractions such as the local market with its excellent food.
We also found that from the flat we could walk to both the buses to Catania - and beyond - and the archeological site, though these were further, about 20mins and 40mins respectively.
The flat itself was modern, clean and comfortable, with an attractive terrace that we took both wine and food on and enjoyed the afternoon sun from.
It was also nicely quite for sleep and felt like we'd "come home" after a hard days walking and travelling.
All in all a great place with a helpful and friendly host, in a perfect area. A home from home in a beautiful part of the world I couldn't recommend it more.
Ottima posizione, la casa è come appare nelle foto: moderna,luminosa e accessoriata di tutto il necessario. Davis è stato molto disponibile e gentile.
L'appartamento veramente carino, moderno con terrazza, ben organizzato con tutti i confort.Accoglienza ottima. Sistemazione ideale nel centro di Ortigia a due passi dal duomo. Molti locali e ristoranti nelle vicinanze. Lo consiglio.
Nous avons séjourné 3 nuits en février dans cet appartement et gardons une bonne impression générale. Très bien situé au centre d'Ortigia, tout est accessible à pied sans aucun problème. Environnement calme. L'appartement est confortable heureusement la climatisation sert aussi de chauffage, l'appartement était très froid à notre arrivée (il aurait été agréable qu'il soit chauffé avant) .
L'accueil était très correct.
Juste une remarque, la connection internet via le WIFI est très faible voir impossible en soirée, mieux le matin. Le "Wifi pocket" qui dessert l'appartement mériterait d'être remplacé.
C'est un endroit que nous n'hésiterons pas à recommander.
Host is very nice, very welcoming and informative. The place is very central, clean and modern. Parking is very close. Highly recommended.
We rented Davis' place for three nights in late October. There was good communication prior to, and during, our stay. Now for some info.
It is clean. The apartment is in a great location -- away from all of the tourist stuff but close enough so that walking to sites and restaurants is not a burden at all. The apartment has a nice balcony that overlooks a courtyard/parking lot. The bed is comfortable and the kitchen has pretty much everything you'll need for a stay. It is much smaller than I expected, but fine for two people. The wi-fi worked well while we were there. It's a cool little place. Davis gave us some good restaurant suggestions and they were good.
The Not So Good:
The apartment lacks some things that I think Davis overlooked. For example, there are hangers, but nowhere to hang them in the closet. There is no mirror except the one over the bathroom sink. The towels are small. The lighting in the bathroom is limited to a small set over the toilet/bidet - nothing over the sink - and one bulb was out. The lighting over the kitchen counter was missing a bulb and another one didn't work until I screwed it in -- Davis, you need to pay attention. The lighted shower looked nice but the water pressure isn't the greatest. We turned on the heat and oven at the same time and blew a circuit. Davis responded well but told us that we should not try that again because the circuitry is limited. The apartment entry door squeaked BADLY. Davis, please fix that. Also, one A/C-heater remote control didn't have batteries so we had to use one for both units and the TV remote didn't work, but that wasn't an issue for us as we didn't use it.
We had a very nice time in Siracusa and it was nice to come back to an apartment instead of a hotel. If you can overlook some of the things that affected us you'll like it here.
