When approaching the city center of Siracusa at night and coming a route that appeared quite industrial... I was very concerned & almost ready to find another hotel! You step in the doors of Hotel Cavalieri and your worries go away immediately. Beautiful hotel, wonderful staff and lovely breakfasts daily.

Excellent location, walking distance to old town, but still relatively easy to find a free parking space in the vicinity.

The hotel is well located, close to the old town. The hotel and the rooms are very nice, clean and beautifully furnished. The breakfast buffet is, while not very big, very well done. Staff is friendly.

Upon check in we were given a set of rules of the hotel which made for an uninviting experience. Some were reasonable such as a non smoking establishment. But we were also told that no outside food or drink could be brought into the hotel. Food is understandable but drink, such as water is a bit unreasonable, particularly since water...

Dear Guest, thank you for your visit at feedback.

Hotel Cavalieri has a great location, close to the lovely island of Ortigia. There is convenient parking across the road in the public carpark, the staff are pleasant, the rooms are very clean, and the wifi works well. However, we were surprised to note that there was a charge for tea/coffee, which could be consumed at reception only. Additionally, there...

Dear Malone, thank you for your nice words pointing out the convenient location and Cavalieris' sense of hospitality.

This is a nice place to stay. Our room was comfortable and I liked the decor throughout the hotel. There is a focus on quality, and we really enjoyed our breakfast. Cavalieri is well located, easy to walk to Ortigia or the train station.

Opening the door from the hot, busy street outside, stepping inside is like entering an oasis, with the cool reception area like an indoor courtyard.

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
