We recently spent two nights at Hotel Cavalieri. We thought our room was elegant, with a wonderful bathroom with tub and comfortable bed. The room had an atrium view, which helped ensure it was blissfully quiet at night. The staff was very friendly and helpful as well. The breakfast buffet was good and we enjoyed their baked goods. While this... More

We booked this hotel for our honeymoon trip to Sicily, after careful consideration of other options, on the basis that the Cavalieri appeared more up to date and stylish whilst also benefiting from a great location. I booked direct with the hotel and they arranged a personal pick up from the airport for an additional charge. The driver was waiting... More

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

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.

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
