I had just 2 days in Syracusa so I didn't have time to wander around. the hotel location was perfectly suited for my very filled itinerary. The desk clerk Victor gratuitously upgraded my room which was a pleasant surprise. I had been warned about small hotel rooms but found mine adequate and on the qiet side of the hotel with just the hotel courtyard below. There were many restaurants, of all spending levels, nearby. The staff was polite and helpful especially the concierges who were charming; his name was Victor and he was especially cute and knowledgeable with providing directions and making tour suggestions. Hotel didn't require prepayment, a definite plus.

We stayed here for 4 nights in August 2012. It was my first trip to Syracuse and my first Sicilian hotel and I could not have wished a better welcome to Sicily: it is a charming hotel that truly deserves its label 'boutique hotel'. We had a spacious and comfortable bedroom (with a excellent and large kingsize bed), with an immaculate bathroom. The lobby (a converted courtyard) was filled with light, everything was cosy and elegant in this renovated palazzo offering a combination of modern Italian design and traditional antique pieces. Breakfasts were scrumptious with homemade cakes, fresh fruit and juices, delicious cheeses, tomatoes, ham, cereals, crispy fresh bread, jams, honey (a wonderful tasty honey) … served in a lovely white modern crockery. The staff and the owner were very friendly and helpful, we were given excellent information about the restaurants around and the town, we parked your hired car for free on the street without any problem. Hotel Cavalieri is only a short walk from Ortigia island, perfectly located for visiting Ortigia without being in the tourist crowd. We enjoyed every moment of our stay, wandering in magical Ortigia small streets, then having a nap in Cavalieri (it was hot and our air conditionned bedroom was a bliss!) then exploring again Siracusa. We had enough time to go to Palazollo Acreide/Akrai: do not miss this lovely small town with its amazing Greek theatre.We highly recommend the Cavalieri and thank the charming staff for their care and attention.

We foud the concierge and room service to be exemplary. Our accomodation was comfortable and quiet. The shuttle service to the airport was very convenient and highly reliable. Very close to the island Ortygia. We would definitely book here again on another visit to Syracuse in Sicily.

We can´t imagine a better place to stay in Syracuse. Excellent staff, very good facilities, parking nearby and beyond that great breakfast. The hosts take care personally, and carefully, of their property so everything works perfectly well.

Room Tip: Get in touch, through e-mail, with the hotel management.

Very nice and quiet hotel, very clean, staff very friendly and helpful, very good breakfast. The location is also quite convenient if you are not shy of walking a bit to reach the old part of the city (10-15 minutes).
Syracuse itselft is very nice.
Overall, great place for a few romantic days.

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
