Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • The apartment is very clean and cosy, brightly and comfortably furnished with thoughtful touches which were appreciated - such as ironing facilities. The little kitchen was clever and compact, and though we didn't use it, except to store some things in the refrigerator, it seemed to be well equipped with utensils. The air-conditioner was necessary and welcome! The washing- machine and wi-fi a positive addition.
    Very well located and over-all good value..

    Elena seemed a lovely person and was pleased to receive our feedback of some areas for improvement (see following) and has promised to remedy them.

    The sofa bed seemed quite comfortable but the fitted sheet did not fit.
    We had to use the fitted sheet as a top sheet and this was not comfortable for our daughter - who did not sleep well. Our suggestion was s to provide 2 flat sheets.
    There is too much light in the main room from the street light entering the room through the uncovered glass above the front door. This also makes sleeping difficult. We suggested putting up some kind of curtain/ cover if possible.
    Also, the refrigerator was very noisy.
    The shower head was broken and there was a problem with the shower draining.

  • The "elegant Loft in Ortigia" was really great! a very nice and modern furnished apartement in the middle of the center, with a fully equipement kitchen. We had a great time there.
    Elena was extremly helpful and nice. She gave us many good tipps for our stay and was always available when we needed her.

  • Very nice quiet apartment in the center of the old city. There is everything you need: kitchen utensils, washing machine, air conditioning, wi-fi. for up to 4 people. Ideally, for a couple or a family with one child, as we have.Near promenade, restaurants, walk to the town beach 10 minutes. Were in Syracuse 3days, liked it. Thank you, Elena.

  • Great location in Ortigia close to the castle and restaurants. The trattoria Sveva on the piazza on the right is great-not to miss. We had a couple of dinner there and were never disappointed with the food. Prices are honest and staff helpful and friendly.

    The apartment itself is well furnished (kitchen, sofa, tv, washing-machine, wifi...). However, the shower wasn't the greatest, water wasn't coming down and hot water was quasi non-existent. Sunlight is also quasi non existent too as the apartment is located in a very narrow street.

    We've never met Elena but she was very quick to respond our questions and Nick the guy that gave us the keys was very welcoming and friendly.

  • The central apartment is perfectly located and has everything you need. For four persons it is a little small but still charming!

  • We had a great time here. Elena met us at the parking garage and personally showed us the way to the apartment. It was clean, smart, efficient design...exactly what we were looking for. There was even coffee and wine in the fridge for us. It is a bit of a walk from the parking garage, but in a great location close to great sites of old Syracusa.

  • Could not say enough good things about this apartment!!
    Stayed here with a friend for a few days.
    Elena got back to us immediately when we requested availability and we were able to book right away fairly last min. (booked less than a month before).

    Elena was away when we arrived but Nick took care of everything from even before we arrived. He gave us a call a few days before just to check in and set us up in the apartment upon arrival- he even offered us a ride to the apartment since he was coming into town at the same time! His English is perfect so that was a nice break in our Sicilian vaca.

    The apartment is perfect. Tiny yet spacious- it felt very homey. It's newly renovated and extremely efficient. It also has a lot of comforts that, as an American, we miss while abroad in Italy (such as incredibly fast wi-fi and a shower that doesn't spill all over the floor)! It's located steps away from everything on Ortigia. We will absolutely be renting the apartment again in the future!!

  • Elana was a lovely Host, and was there to meet us on arrival.
    The apartment is in a lovely quiet area, with easy access to the water on each side, and all the local bars and Restaurants. We really enjoyed Ortigia, and we will be back, and we would book again with Elena.
