Beautiful hotel with great location..

The Palazzo Cavalieri is a beautiful modern hotel with soaring ceilings and impressive decor. The rooms apparently vary in size and our room was a good size with a large, well equipped bathroom. The party we were traveling with were given a much smaller room with smaller bath but charged the same(not sure why that was). The staff was attentive but not particularly warm and friendly with the exception of the bellmen who were always smiling and incredibly eager to help with luggage. When one evening we asked for a set of wine glasses or plastic cups we were told that they could not provide them. We were told that we could not congregate in the beautiful common living room to drink our special wine because it could only be used if we were purchasing their beverages and only if their staff member was present (that staff member was apparently ill that evening). So instead, that big beautiful room sat empty while we had to retreat to our room for a glass of wine. The breakfast offerings were both adequate and tasty. The location of this hotel is excellent for exploring the many great sites on Ortygia. Overall, our stay was pleasant but would have been exceptional if the staff had been more accommodating and friendly.

Pros: Location and decor.

Cons: For a two room reservation, rooms should be similar in size. Staff should endeavor to be more friendly.

Location: The highlight of our tour was the Archealogical Museum. The Greek Theater was amazing too. Walking through the Jewish Quarter at night was great.
