the hotel is well located near the two bridges into ortygia though quite a distance on foot to the main archaeological site. It is worthwhile booking one of the hotel's parking spaces right outside it tho' a charge is made for this we had a suite which was reasonably well soundproofed from the main thoroughfare below from all but the...

What a wonderful staff this hotel has! Knowledgable, friendly and professional. We had a lovely room, and the breakfast was super! Fresh, Sicilian orange juice made my husband very happy! Centrally located, but long walks to the ruins. You must see the Greek and roman theaters! Most of our time was spent just over the bridge in Ortigia, dining, shopping... More

Enter off the busy street and this boutique hotel welcomes you into its light, classic interior. Our room was well designed. Breakfast was fresh and interesting ( tiramisu or creme caramel for breakfast?). Special mention must be made of Victor on reception who was knowledgeable and helpful. The hotel's location close to the bridges to the island is ideal as... More

We enjoyed our stay at Hotel Cavalieri in Siracusa. The reception/lobby area of the hotel is very tranquil and calming. We stayed in a room on the first floor and the negative was that voices echoed up from the high ceiling-ed reception to our room. Our room was spacious with a nice big bathroom and more than adequate for our... More

This hotel is simply beautiful. We stayed there only for one night on a standard room and we loved it. Beautiful classic building with a wonderful terrace over viewing the old centre of Siracusa. Slightly disappointed with the continental breakfast, not very "continental" hence the 4 stars rather than 5

We loved our stay in this hotel. The hotel has been very stylishly decorated and is a calm oasis close to the main attractions. It is a 2 minute walk over the bridge to the island of Ortigia. The service was fantastic and every morning we were served breakfast by the most lovely waiter ( we didn't catch his name... More

This was our first time in Sicily and Hotel Cavalieri helped make it very memorable. This boutique hotel exudes class and attentive service. The personal taste of the family is expressed throughout by original 17th C paintings, clocks and object d'art. Situated less than a minute from Ortigia the hotel provides a perfect base for both the archaeological sites of... More

This hotel is at a very reasonable walking distance, something like 2 blocks, from Ortigia island bridges, the heart of Siracusa. Park your car (if you have any) and forget it during your stay. Don't focus too much on the external aspect of the building, the hotel inside is super clean, nice up to date design with great classic paints,... More

We spent 3 nigths at this location and found it to be a very decent Bed & Breakfast. Originally, we planned to stay 4, but one can easily do the complete visit of Ortigia and surrounding area in 2 or 3 days. Cavalieri B&B is a good location to start your visit of both Ortigia Island and the Archeological Site... More

Once our taxi driver found this hotel (I spotted it first and had to use my best sign language to get us there), we stepped off the hot dusty street straight into the beautiful cool calmness of the atrium. This is a small boutique hotel about 3 mins' stroll from the island of Ortigia. The Cavalieri is family-run and we... More
