This hotel has been well refurbished with nice rooms. The location is convienient to Ortigia, the station and a pleasant walk to the archeological park. However, this is a hotel not a private residence and like the two previous reviewers, I was taken aback by the "NO FOOD" instruction immediately after check in! I am aware that it is good manners not to take food into hotel rooms, but in many years of international travel, I have never been issued with a verbal message like this one. The bar prices are expensive so it is worth going out if you want something to eat or drink!
Some of the hotel staff, particularly the Austrian lady and the porter were wonderful - helpful and friendly, but others seemed quite obsessed with keeping the place in order.
A great place if you are OCD but the ambience didn't make me feel very comfortable!
Finally, the response that was given to a previous reviewer made me anxious about writing this review.

- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Hotel Cavalieri, just on the other side of the evocative island Ortigia, is an ancient noble palace of the eighteenth century, has been completely restored in 2012 by the hosts-architects-owners, creating a new boutique hotel with an elegant, modern and fresh style, combining atmosphere and scents of Sicily and offering a precise, contemporary comfort. Particular attention was paid to the recovery of the ancient arches and columns and the use of local materials. The hall, for example, is paved in Modica stone of warm yellow colour, and Pece stone, both typical stone's of the Baroque of the Val di Noto. The two opposing colours, the clear and dark, form together a particular geometry, inspired by the ancient paving of monasteries and churches of the seventeenth Sicilian century. Stopping a moment in the lobby, you will feel that the place is unique: the noise of the city goes out, you will be aware of the presence-absence of Siracusa and of a quiet and homely atmosphere. The Sicilian sun, rain and clear, becomes the protagonist. ... more less
