We found this hotel through Tripadvisor and were not disappointed. A modernised old building with a quality finish. Breakfasts are dangerous to the waistline as the temptations change each day.

Charming and helpful staff recommended where to eat and what to see in Ortigia - all within 10 minutes walk. There's plenty of local street parking for free at this time of year - though you may have to drive a block or two.

We were travelling as an couple with an adult daughter.

We stayed 2 nights and were very happy here. The staff is great, the hotel is beautifully arranged and the breakfast is excellent. We opted for the smallest room because of our budget but it was just enough for us. Although the location is a couple blocks from Ortigia it is easily within walking distance. Having the bicycles at the guests disposal is a great idea and we took full advantage of them. Free parking on the street was no problem. Tip : do not open the window in the evening as the mosquitos were merciless in May, just stick with the aircon.
Memorable stay and would recommend highly.

room was beautifully designed and furnished, very bright, good lighting, a lot of character with a window overlooking a small square and other neighboring buildings. it was picturesque.

this was the case with the entire hotel which has been fully renovated inside and also beautifully designed. we had the opportunity to meet the owner of this hotel who was kind enough to show us other areas of this hotel and share with us abit about the making of the hotel including the fact that the marble stairs still remained from the original building.

location was great, we were able to park our car outside the hotel (a section of the street roped off and reserved for the hotel). just outside Ortygia and walking distance under 10 mins.

we would definitely return if we visit syracuse again.

Dear Madam,
thank you for your positive feedback (after nearly one year; but it is better late, than never). You had, I suppose, actually a very good and extraordinary experience at Hotel Cavalieri in Siracusa since you remember your stay after quite a long time. It would be wonderful if all our guests remember after one year still Hotel Cavalieri!
Hope to see you one day again in Siracusa.
Kindest regards
Gianluca

We booked Hotel Cavalieri at short notice whilst travelling around Sicily last September.
Arriving in Syracuse by train, the hotel was a 15-minute walk from the railway station and was relatively easy to find, being located on a main road.
We were warmly greeted by staff on arrival and were immediately struck by the calm, stylish interior of the hotel. Our room contained modern furniture and decoration, but was above all a functional, comfortable space. The only thing I would change was a small detail in the (also very stylish) bathroom; the shower head was situated on the side wall of the bath, rather than at the end, and could not be adjusted, resulting in some of the water inevitably escaping the bath area when showering.
The room option we chose was not available for the duration of our stay; as an alternative, the manager thoughtfully upgraded our room at no extra cost, to enable us to stay in the same room throughout.
The buffet breakfast was excellent, with a wide range of pastries, breads, cheese, fruit etc.
The staff were always more than happy to help and offered suggestions about restaurants, sightseeing etc, as well as recommendations for our onward journey throughout Sicily.
This is the first time we have stayed in a "boutique hotel" and it was a very positive experience. I have always wondered if a boutique hotel would offer "style over substance" as it were, but this certainly wasn't the case with Hotel Cavalieri. As well as being well situated for sightseeing, the hotel offered a calm, stylish oasis with excellent customer service. Would definitely recommend it. When checking out, the manager requested to take our photograph, which was subsequently e-mailed to us as a reminder of our stay. A nice touch.
