We stayed at the Bambini suite. It's an old house, very cozy, medieval style. Not fancy old charm, but rustic one. The entrance has wood rustic furniture and the room is on the first floor. The stairs are hard, so you need to be careful and not having any problems climbing, otherwise book regular rooms. On the room you have... More

We stayed here 5 nights under a Voyage Prive deal. First of let me start by saying that the deal we had wasn't bad which is why we thought it was a good idea of stay for 5 nights. It is unlike anywhere you will ever stay. It is preserved perfectly in Medieval style. The rooms, the village, everything is... More

I booked a superior room in this hotel. In my confirmation email they promised a spacious king size room with a bathtub and a fireplace in the room. At the arrival they told me that the room is not available. They said that i will get another room the next day. I asked if in this one will be the... More

We stayed in nine different accommodations during our recent trip to Italy. Because the following experiences were fairly consistent from place to place, I offer them not as criticisms but as observations on cultural differences. We found that beds were VERY firm, showers small, that toiletries always included shower caps but never conditioner, that bedrooms and baths contained highly scented... More

We stayed only one night in this sweet village for a quick weekend away from Rome. The scenery is beautiful and Abruzzo, in early November, has her fall colours on beautiful display. The hotel is well organized and managed and the amount of care and concern is very apparent. We stayed in one of the tower rooms with a split... More

It's like stepping back in time but with modern comforts! The hotel is part of a restored medieval village in a beautiful landscape with hills and mountains. The staff were very friendly and helpful. We stayed one night in the most atmospheric and beautiful room/apartment with a downstairs 'lounge' area and up to a warm en suite bedroom complete with... More

I first became aware of this truly amazing place when I noticed it in a Design Hotels Book whilst staying at the QT in Sydney. Oh how I wanted to go there, but never in a million years did I think I actually would. When it came time to planning our first trip overseas I was searching for unique places... More

So happy to have stayed at the Albergo as my first night of the http://www.italiasweetitalia.com 10 day tour. The most beautiful place that takes you back in time while offering modern conveniences. Romantic, atmospheric and fabulous. The beautiful bedroom, wonderful food and pretty little boutiques of local produce all nestled into the hillsides of Abruzzo. Yes, yes and yes!

A Brillant concept to recreate a medieval experience (with modern concessions). The accommodation was unique (do not expect a modern hotel) and the food and staff at the restaurant were excellent. We easily filled 2 days exploring the local attractions and enjoyed returning to the village.

Unique place to stay. We chose to stay here because we had stayed at the sister hotel in Matera last year and were very impressed. The rooms are atmospheric and very clean. We would echo others comments regarding the fact that the beds and pillows are very hard. There is nowhere to sit in the rooms nor is there a... More
