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!

A very stylish, sophisticated hotel in a very convenient position near the old area of Syracuse. Beautiful building, renovated by the architect owner, is stunning and practical as well as aesthetically pleasing. The staff were so helpful with the things to see and restaurants to frequent, understanding our limited time. I couldn't recommend this more as a great place to... More

The hotel was very good located, just a few blocks from Ortigia. Very well decorated with light colours and modern furniture. The terrace was big, with a partial view from the sea, definetely a nice spot to relax ! The room was spacious, well decorated, with a bathroom and bathtube.

This is a beautiful, small, stylish hotel just a few hundred yards from both the historic island of Ortigia and the train and bus stations in Syracuse. The interiors are immaculate, beautifully designed and maintained, and every element, from the Barcelona chairs, through the crockery, to the carefully selected archaeological artefacts and even the mineral water bottles in the fridges,...

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
