We stayed here for 4 nights on our way from Fontane Bianche to Taormina.
We had a wonderful duplex room (almost an apartment) that just sang to us.
The staff were superb (especially our breakfast server - give her a payrise please!). Helpful, accommodating, and very knowledgable.
The breakfast was extremely good for Italy (if you've been before you know what I mean) - locally sourced products and very fresh fruit etc. (Although, as per everywhere in Italy, the fruit juice was from a carton - why does everyone do this when there is such an abundance of fresh fruit everywhere?!!!).
They also had (for Italy) a very good WiFi policy - no need to log on/off - no expiring cryptic passwords - brilliant and respect for this - it's very rare for some reason in this country.
Would definitely stay there again - it's not the cheapest, and you're not in the centre of Ortigia, but we actually saw this as a bonus. Nice 10 min walk to the end of the island, and nice walk back at night after a ridiculously large meal :)
- 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
