We arrived in Siracusa late in the afternoon and were delighted to unpack our lagguagge and sit down to a wonderful, refreshing sgriccio. This Sicilian drink was delicious. The same was true the next morning for the breakfast buffet! The folks at Reception were exceptionally helpful and answered all of our questions. We also appreciated the overall comfort and amenities of the room ... a idden gem!

We had an unfortunate stay at Hotel Cavalieri in late September. We were a group of ten adults traveling together. The Hotel is beautiful, nicely designed and the breakfast is very well done.

BUT, they have rules. And they enforce them. And they are unique and petty. When a guest mentions an objection, the reply is that the rules are on the web site and the guest should have reviewed the before arranging for the room.

While there were rules, there was no porter. Curious.

Some of the rules are announced at arrival, before registration. The three we heard were no smoking (not unusual) no beverages in the room (except water) no food in the room (although they will bring their food and beverages to your room, of course).

These rules and many others are in fact on their web site under "Terms". These particular terms are in section II number 5. There are many rules under section II as well as other sections as well.

One never knows which rules will be enforced. But "if you break it, you bought it" is certainly one of them. One of our friends accidentally broke an unstable lamp in the lobby. His was charged 1/2 of the cost of the 6 year old lamp, $100. Surely it had been fully depreciated in six years.

Note the rules on cancellation, note the rules on ironing in the room. We were not in violation of those particular rules but I would suggest you need to be very aware of them as well.

The paid staff was very polite and helpful. The blonde haired woman who worked the front desk was really quite nice. The owner, I assume that is who is was, is a martinet in my opinion.

So, bottom line after 50 some reviews on Tripadvisor, this is the first hotel I would suggest you skip. We certainly won't return.

It operates more as an upscale and attractive dormitory than a member of the Hospitality Industry.

We had a room overlooking the central area of the hotel and it was very quiet. The room and bathroom where both a reasonable size and very clean. Hotel interior is typical modern boutique style, clean and sharp. The staff where very helpfully, giving good advise on where to eat and parking places. Parking could be usually found in the side streets, especially by the large car park. Breakfast was the best of the 3 hotels we stayed in on our trip to Sicily. It is an easy walk to Ortigia 10 min, a bit further to the Archeological Park 20 min plus. If you have a car a visit to the Pantalica is well worth it. Re -the comments on food in rooms, this is quite a common rule in the UK and does not cause a problem. Would certainly recommend this hotel.

Good location, just a few blocks away from the island of Ortigia, where you will find all the touristic sights.
Simple, non-pretentious small hotel, comfortable, clean and quiet. Good size room. Nice bathroom with excellent amenities and very fluffy towels.
The staff was very helpful and pleasant and breakfast was ok.
Wi-fi was free, and parking is on the streets just in front of the hotel.
We surely would recommend this hotel to a friend or stay here again if we happen to come back to Siracusa someday.

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.
