We stayed four nights at this hotel. The building is an old palazzo that has been renovated with the utmost care. It is furnished with modern furniture by a family with great taste. The hotel is family owned and run. The rooms are nice and bath romms very modern. The rooms are super clean and the sheets are changed every day. The only minimal downside is that the rooms facing the courtyard are relatively dark. However, they are very calm in return. The breakfast is awesome. The breakfast room could be a little bigger.
The Signora is watching the scene very carefuly. Sometimes this feels a little too much. The buidling is located close to the bridge to beautiful Ortigia. There are many restaurants close by.
The car parking is rather expensive and in my view bicicle renting should be free.
Other than that there is really nothing to complain. I stayed with my son of 7 years and my partnes of 75 and the hotel suited all of us. This says it all.
- 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
