Stayed 5 nights earlier this month and thoroughly enjoyed the hotel and would recommend it to any friend or family member.
Good central location, we drove to it with no Satnav and found it easily. If you have a car don't pay to park just drive around until you find a white bay, it's free. The hotel is within walking distance to all the main sights in Siracusa and Ortigia. Staff were polite and helpful making good recommendations for restaurants and excursions. They organised a winery tour and tasting for us via email which worked very nicely.
My only criticism is of the air conditioning which is noisy and leaves you feeling very dry come the morning. We tried turning it off and sleeping with the window open but found it too hot in June.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Hotel Palazzo 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
