Very nice location, nice host

  • 4 of 5

Max is a very friendly and accommodating host, no problems with meeting times, good communication. Theapartment has a very convenient location, just a block away from the ocean and a main square where the electric buses and hop on hop off buses come, and is in a safe area.

It was lovely to have a kitchen and the patio area outside was very pleasant. Having an upstairs neighbour whose living area was above our bedroom was slightly annoying, not because of any deliberate noisemaking, but just that older buildings are not very well insulated for high heel shoes walking about early in the morning. Internet did not seem to work , but Max had warned us about that, and nearby cafes and restaurants had wifi, so we had an excuse to stop for coffee every day. Nice restaurants near by, plus the daily market was fabulous. We enjoyed very much our time in Ortigia.

Wonderful location, but problems with wifi and electricity

  • 3 of 5

The apartment we rented in many ways was delightful. A roomy place with two bedrooms, a kitchen, a bathroom, and a private courtyard--and located near everything on Ortigia Island. The landlord was friendly and provided many useful tips on what to do, where to eat, and how to get around on public transportation. Yet the place had two serious drawbacks. The advertised wifi system didn't work (which was no surprise to the landlord), and the electricity repeatedly failed. Flipping a circuit breaker back up was not enough if you were going to continue to use several lights and the coffee maker at the same time. This became more than a nuisance.

Owner's Response: Dear guest, thank you for your feedback and - again - sorry for the problems during your stay. We have finally found the reason for electricity-problem and solved. We have also bought a new Wifi-Router. So both problems are solved.
