Great place to stay. The room is spacious, tastefully furnished, and in a great location - seconds from a glorious sea view and very near all the main sites and restaurants. Being at street level didn't bother us at all, especially as the room is such good value. Thomas was very welcoming and helpful, giving us lots of recommendations. There's also a friendly little salumeria, just a couple of doors up, that does great and cheap panini. Ortigia itself is simply stunning! Incredible architecture, cool bars and restaurants, and surrounded by beautiful, crystal clear, sea.

Thomas's place was beautifully decorated and right in the heart of Ortiglia. We had so many restaurants and bars on our doorstep and the sea just round the corner. Thomas was very welcoming and gave us some good dining recommendations. We definitely recommend staying here.

Thomas’ place is as advertised and the location is superb but the lack of air conditioning was compounded by only one window, therefore, even though the evening air was cool there was no was to circulate it. An air conditioning upgrade would be nice and make it a stellar value.

Thomas was an amazing host! The apartment is 10 seconds walking to the seaside, near to everything like restaurants, bars( I recommend Le Vin de L'assasin Bistrot, right at the corner). The room is just perfect for a couple, really bohemian and cozy, clean and you feel like in the 18th century. Thomas was as well really friendly, helped us with everything, even invited us on the rooftop together with his Sicilian musician friends that were jamming, it was bliss! Totally recommend this place :)

What a gorgeous room! Thomas' place could not be better located. It's just steps from a sumptuous Siracusa sea view and right in the centre of quaint Ortygia. It's beautifully appointed with lovely decor and bed linen. Thomas was also very communicative and the whole check in / check out process ran smoothly!

This is an absolute gem of a listing. Located right in the heart of the city, just steps away from the best ocean view you can find in Sicily. Thomas was one of the most helpful hosts we've ever had, always responding to questions within minutes and giving us genuinely great recommendations. The place itself is lovely and way unpriced for what it is. Very comfortable bed and clean aesthetic. Although a fan would have been nice for the warmer days, the room did manage to stay cool enough for us. Thanks Thomas and we hope to stay with you again if we're ever in the area.
