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

This hotel was beautiful. Lovely decor, nice and clean, quiet, great location - everything you could hope for. The staff were wonderful, very friendly and welcoming, and so helpful with travel arrangements, directions and recommendations for places to eat. Breakfast was lovely too, lots of different things to choose from and lovely friendly service.

I stayed in this very nice hotel just a couple of weeks ago. With my husband. Hotel Cavalieri is a really very comfortable small family run hotel with all amenities you need for a marvoullous holiday. Fortunately no kids allowed, hence the atmosphere in the whole hotel is just relaxing and very calm. Breakfast was excellent with wonderful cakes and... More

This interesting hotel had very friendly staff and is well located just off Ortigia Island. Street parking could be a minor problem but was never impossible. The room was well equipped and comfortable. The breakfast arrangements were annoyingly inflexible when we needed to leave for the airport - nothing available before 8.00 am.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Hotel Cavalieri, at the edge of the ancient city center, is a case in point; this old aristocratic residence belongs to a family of architects and designers, who've turned its 19th-century halls and rooms into a charmingly eclectic, thoroughly contemporary boutique hotel. The location, on Via Malta, is just to the mainland side of the bridge to Ortygia, which is the original ancient Greek settlement. This means easy access by day and a measure of peace by night. As does the hotel itself - these old walls shut out the noise, sealing guests in to a fantasy of noble life. It's not a period piece, though; along with the well-preserved original architecture you'll find all manner of contemporary touches, rooms featuring brand-new bath fixtures, beds and electronics and furnished with mid-century design classics. With few rooms it's perhaps a bit bigger than it feels - from within the rooms you'd be hard pressed not to imagine you're the old house's sole resident. ... more   less
