I highly recommend staying at Hortigia, it is as described. The location is perfect on a quiet side street In Ortigia. We were three couples, we had plenty of space, the beds were comfortable, the kitchen was equipped with everything we needed. The owner and his mother were very helpful, anytime we texted with a question Fiorenzo answered immediately. As well his mother met us at the house when we arrived and provided us with a welcome “basket”. We had a wonderful time in Hortigia and if we return would rebook Hortigia. It is a third floor walk up but it wasn’t a problem for our family who range in age from 28 to 77 years. Thank you Fiorenzo and Sra Diana for being such good hosts.
We stayed for a week in this flat. The flat is lovely and in a great location. But what really wowed us was the friendly and incredibly helpful hosts. Fiorenzo was in touch from the moment of our booking and organised things for us to ensure we had what we needed given we were arriving late with a toddler. But he and Diana also looked after us through our stay including helping us get home when we were lost and couldn't find a taxi. Really fabulous place and lovely hosts. Thanks again Fiorenzo and Diana!
The apartment is centrally located on a quiet street in the historic Ortigia district and a short walk from all the sights, shops and restaurants. The apartment is nicely decorated with what we called "contemporary IKEA".. The rooms are nice and the beds comfortable. The bathrooms are small but adequate. Kitchen is well stocked. We had no problem cooking breakfasts every morning, and one group pasta dinner for the 5 of us. We had very good communication with the owner who seems to assign all the on-site tasks to his mother Diana. She is simply wonderful! She met us when we arrived and immediately got in our car to help guide us to find the best parking. Not easy to find free parking, but the 10 Euro a day lot is only a 4 min walk away. She also happily came by anytime we needed help - extra set of keys, WiFi, check-out, etc. I would absolutely recommend this apartment.
FANTASTIC Place !!!
Everything was great. The location is perfect, in one of the best areas in Ortigia, and within walking distance of all the main attractions. The apartment is extremely cute, very quiet, large, with a gorgeous little terrace. It has everything that anyone could need. I would DEFINITELY stay there again when back in Ortigia. Thanks !!!
