Isabella's place is very conveniently located, pittoresque and good deal. Isabella is very easy to communicate with and a great introduction to Syracuse life. Very recommended!

My friend and I didn't enjoy our stay at Isabella's. We arrived at 12.15 and should be able to check-in at 10.00, (even though it says that check-out is at 11.00 - it doesn't make sense) but the cleaning lady arrived at 3pm, so we had to walk around the city in the warmest hours for 3 hours and were finally able to access the apartment at 3.30pm. We had a lot of laundry and partly booked the place because of the laundry machine, but it was out of order.. Then Isabella's friend came by and said that we could pay 7€ per person and the cleaning lady could wash our clothes. After protesting, he called Isabella and we got it for free. Still after these problems, Isabella didn't contact us at any time to check up on us. The heating machine is also leaking from time to time.

A good place to be. In Ortigia, the old centre of Syracuse! What could you wish for more? The appartment is fine enough. It is on the ground floor of an old house. Well restored and furnished. There is a tendency to get a little moist. The people are very friendly and helpful.

I had a wonderful two weeks in Isabella’s apartment. The location is just right. The fresh food market 150 metres away is fun and friendly with all the fresh produce you need. Easy walking distance to everything. Just the right pots and pans for cooking diverse meals and the grater was a big plus for the fresh pecorino and grana padano from the market. I didn’t think I’d use the juicer until I discovered the cheap blood oranges. Everything was clean and tidy. The hot water worked fine. The thick walls meant it was a wonderful haven from the heat and humidity. Isabella made every effort to make sure everything was satisfactory. The photos of the apartment are appealing but it is much nicer in reality. I felt very much at home and leaving was a bit sad. I intend to return to Syracuse again next year and hope it will be possible to stay again.

Isa's apartment was perfect for our stay - right in the centre of Ortigia and really authentic. Isa was a lovely host and arranged for her mother, who lives upstairs, to show us the apartment. I'd recommend this highly!
