My husband and I just spent a lovely relaxing week staying in this apartment. It's located very centrally in Ortygia, but is set back from the road (entry to the block is through a courtyard) so you don't hear any traffic noise. It's only 5 minutes walk to the main square, 5 minutes in the other direction to the bathing platform, and there are lots of restaurants, cafes and bars nearby to choose from. If you're taking public transport to Syracusa, it's an easy 15 or 20 minute walk from the bus station to the apartment, or you can take the little tourist bus (50 cents a trip) which stops at the end of the road and does a circuit every 30 minutes or so.
The apartment itself was well-stocked with useful items (tea, oil, toilet rolls etc), and we even had a bottle of wine to welcome us. There's a washing machine and clothes line on a small balcony at the front of the apartment (usefully in full sun at all times), and a great little balcony at the back, perfect for relaxing and drinking the welcome wine!
All in all, it was perfect for our week stay and we would recommend it.
