Hotel is ok so stay in. Nothing special, strange key system imposed whereby the key is held at reception when you leave the hotel, and returned when you get back. Breakfast is in a small room, no options, no extras. We were asked to pay extra for soy milk. We were asked to pay 1euro administration charge for reception to... More

Hotel is very well situated just 2 blocks from the pedestrian bridge to Ortigia. Hotel Cavalleri staff are very helpful in every way. Luca was terrific in recommending great restaurants, getting us reservations, and a taxi when needed. Our room was spotless, with a very comfortable bed, and super quiet. Problem was that I slipped in the tub.... Nothing to... More

My husband and I stayed here for 3 nights at the beginning of July. We were greeted by the lady owner who allocated us room 20. This was a very small room with one small window giving minim natural light and now view. Unfortunately when we turned the light on and the air conditioning the electrics kept tripping out. The...

Sophisticated choice for a visit to Syracuse. It felt a bit like staying in a wealthy friends palazzo! Staff were efficient, discreet and smartly turned out, better than some of the 5 star hotels we stayed in on the island - reception guys in elegant grey suits, bit Soho House! Made a dinner reservation for us too when we arrived.... More

Helpful staff. Well-located hotel for access both to Ortygia and Siracusa proper. Pleasant hotel that had a sense of place. Great breakfast with local touches such as eucalyptus honey and Sicilian cakes.

We booked this as it appeared good value and was only 5 minutes walk from Ortega Island. The location proved perfect. It s a hotel with cool clean décor and friendly service.

This could easily have been a 3* rated review because of a couple of minor maintenance issues highlighted below, however, the friendliness and assistance provided by most staff has encouraged me to rate a 4. Location ideal - quite and an opportunity to avoid the madness of the crowds in Ortigia especially at weekends - but providing very easy 5-10... More

We spent two lovely nights in Siracusa. We stayed at Hotel Cavalieri, the best we found in quality at a reasonable price. Fine and clean rooms, really good service that hits the target with their reccommendations. Don't miss the croissants at breakfast!

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
