A generous-sized flat well-equipped and modern, including the quietest air-con we've ever experienced. Yes, not much to look at from outside, yes lots of steps and yes a small balcony overlooking a busy junction- but accept these and everything else is positive. Just round the block from the bus and rail station, good bakery opposite, restaurants close by and a pleasant walk straight into the old town of Ortigia. We loved sitting on the (narrow) balcony with a glass of wine in the sun looking out over the water and watching the busy Marconi square below. Plus at the square you can get a hop-on hop-off bus for €5 a day that goes round some of the main sights (useful when the weather is hot!).
Maurizio very helpful and met us in the square. Google maps have the address totally wrong - it literally is round the block from the station - 2 minutes walk. We loved our stay there and would highly recommend.
Very good location, apartment itself is newly refurbished, well kitted out and secure, everything works,air-con is very quiet decent wifi signal,very clean ,good views from balcony and windows,parking is easy Monday evening is the only night you can't park in the square, spoilt for choice if you're a foodie ,if you're a keep fit fanatic there's a nice gym round the corner,but you won't need it, 87 steps to the apartment will keep your cardio up(if you have mobility issues probably not suitable), ok for 2 people for a short period,smaller than some ,but I loved it and would stay there again,didn't see much of maurizio but when called(very small issue) he was round in minutes to address it ,I would happily recommend this apartment to friends or family
Great value for money apartment in a really convenient location. Do not look at the map on trip advisor as it is incorrect. Look at the photographs which show the true location. The apartment is well equipped, with a comfortable bed, great shower with plenty of hot water and a very good wi-fi connection. It has a small balcony but enough room to sit out and enjoy a drink while watching the world go by. Opposite is a bakery where you can purchase fresh bread every morning including Sundays. Excellent restaurants nearby especially '8 O'clock'. The apartment is near a fairly busy road but it did not cause us any problems and we slept well.
It is only a very short walk from the bus station so you can easily get the bus to and from the airport. The owner and his wife were very friendly and helpful providing us with information on the town. The booking process worked well.
We had a really good holiday in a beautiful town.

Excellent apartment, two small downsides the 70 plus stairs to climb and my wife said not having proper coat hangers.
The apartment is clean lots of restaurants near by and supermarkets and around 800-900 metres to the old town. The lad Lord is a very nice man very helpful, give restaurant 8' o clock a try 3-5 min walk beautiful fish dishes.
Another questions just ask, bus station to airport 5 minute walk
Syracuse is a lovely place and though you have to climb 78 steps to get to the apartment it's worth it and good for your cardio vascular exercise and helps with calories. The apartment is well equipped, has a great bed, good shower, is in great condition, the kitchen is well equipped and the air conditioning is a boon. Meets our needs comfortably and has a great view.
