An impromptu visit to Siracusa, in tandem with reservations at the Hotel Cavalieri made for a delicious duo. This was our first time in Sicily and having a very limited time we decided to focus just on Siracusa - & doing our homework [reading previous trip advisor reviews] made our hotel choice a no-brainer.
Emblematic of the rich cultural history of Ortigia, the Cavalieri captures a sophisticated charm of its own. The owners were very gracious and extremely helpful sorting out some special requests we had. The staff were all very courteous and attentive.
Boutique hotels, that are privately owned and managed, provide a fantastic "home base" from which to experience a new city. The aesthetics of such establishments. as a rule, reflect the passion and commitment of the ownership & the Hotel Cavalieri exemplifies this standard at its best.
It is definitely on our favorites list and we look forward to another "bello" visit soon!
- 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
