“Chic and comfortable”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 May 2012

This is a newly renovated property where "old meets new" in the decor. Quality materials throughout give this place a "classy" feel. The rooms are bright, nicely appointed with modern furniture that complements the antique feel of the building and the beautiful old artwork. The bathroom was spanking clean. the doors to a window overlooking the busy street below were effective noise barriers.
In the (very small but nicely redone) breakfast room the hotel staff laid out a delicious assortment of Italian breakfast pastries, rolls, local smoked meats and cheeses, a wide range of fresh fruit, and tasty olives. Services was friendly and attentive.
Parking on the street was a bit of a challenge at first (there is a public parking lot where you can pay for 24 hours) but we managed to move the car on Sunday morning when the streets were deserted. You can walk to all major attractions from this hotel if you are able bodied and wiling to expends a few calories so you can eat those amazing Italian treats they serve you for breakfast and not fear about weight gain.
We definitely would come back to this gem of a little hotel.

Just returned from our grand tour of Sicily. We spent two nights at the Hotel Cavalieri. The property is well-located, just a couple of blocks from the bridge that connects to Ortigia. The hotel has been beautifully updated, with a contemporary feel that has not been overdone. The public rooms in the lobby are filled with natural light from a glass ceiling and the staircase and the hallways also benefit from well-placed windows. The room was spacious and clean, the bed was good-sized and very comfortable. The furnishings are sleek and contemporary which enhanced the sense of cleanliness. The staff is attentive and professional: from the booking process when I received very prompt online replies to my inquiries, to the check-in, to departure. The breakfast is ample and makes a lovely appearance. We would not hesitate to stay here again when we return to beautiful Siracusa!

We have spent two weeks traveling around Sicily and have stayed in many hotels BUT Hotel Cavalieri was by far the best. The owners of this boutique hotel have spared no expense with the re-design of an old building into a lovely boutique hotel. The interiors are finished to a high standard but still retain the charm of the old building with light flooding into the reception area though a glass ceiling. Bedrooms are spacious and very comfortable. Free WIFI which is important to us. The breakfast is amazing with the best museli, cold cuts, pastries etc. One of the most important aspects of our stay was the friendliness of the owners. Nothing was too much trouble and the advice they gave us with regard to where to stay in other parts of Sicily was invaluable. Short walk to the Old Town and we had no problem parking our car around the corner from the hotel. Would strongly recommend this hotel. We stayed for two days but could easily have stayed longer.

quet , clean welcoming, friendly ,good service, excellent breakfast a pleasure to come home to after a hard day of being a tourist in a busy city. Rooms are comfortable and quiet ;the owners and staff are helpful .Parking is a problem in Syracuse -- we suggest that you pay extra for the limited "in front " spots. We would return as guests our stay was most pleasurable and unlike this web site nothing annoyed us at all We rated the Cavalieri as first class.

Room Tip: street rooms can hear street noise . atrium rooms are quiet but our room was on the side and it was...

Coming all the way by train from Venice overnight I was overjoyed to find this beautiful hotel in Syracuse. I was able to walk to and from the train station just a short distance away.I had mixed up by booking date and the staff were so accommodating and helpful I was put at ease immediately and shown to a beautiful room with all the modern conveniences one could ask for. The design of the building and restoration are beautiful and the location to see the historical sites and shop or enjoy fine dining on the island of Ortygia just minutes away by walking couldn't be better.
Breakfast was delicious and I would love to return there soon!

The hotel is located very good place, 3 minutes by walk to Ortygia and easy to find on a main street. The owner and staffs are very kind and friendly, they helped parking our car on the street and recommended to us about good restaurants and sightseeing spots in Syracuse. Our room was large enough for 3 people family and very clean. We got a good memory of Syracuse with staying Hotel Cavalieri.

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
