Very nice hotel in a perfect location. However, the bed is quite uncomfortable but this was made up for by the amazing service. Lucca is wonderful and very accommodating. If visiting the area again I would only stay in this hotel if Lucca was still an employee at the hotel.

My wife and I stayed here in October for a few nights. We parked in the public carp park across the way with no hassle whatsoever. The hotel was quite odd because the bed was not comfortable and the pillows where very hard. The Aircon made the room very cold. We were also told not to bring food into the...

Dear Sir or Madam, I'm really sorry that your experience at Palazzo Cavalieri was not to your full satisfaction. I would like to answer to some of your complaints: the mattresses, as well as the pillows, are produced by a well known high-end Italian company, and furthermore, fullfil orthopedic requirements. The fact, that you are not used to this kind...

The rooms are large and freshly decorated. The Wi-Fi DOES NOT WORK in the Rooms. The Staff tries very hard to make it work but we have been here Two days and it only works in the great room next to the breakfast room. This must corrected or it will cost them many customers in the future !

When you enter Siracusa by taxi from Catania, you wonder why you ever decided to come here. In a few hours after you settle down, you realize how beautiful the city is and that the main attraction is the Ortigia Island area. The hotel is not on the island but a mere 5 minutes walk across a bridge, extremely well...

The Hotel Cavalieri has high ceilings and is a great modern space in a historic building. White with clean Italian lines and neat decor. The suite was large, with a separate sitting area, that also has a table and chair set. The marble bathroom had a great shower and good toiletries. I highly recommend staying in one of their suites....

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
