I am writing this review in the hope that management or the owners are sensitive to our tripadvisor community, and at the same time prepare any future guests for this unique experience. This hotel, or rather collection of scattered rooms, is designed with philosophy of preserving the ancient experience of medieval Italy. The rooms have no TV, no fridge, no... More

Quite shocked by the negative reviews here. This hotel is a completely unique experience. The rooms are stunning and the attention to historical conservation astounding. Wonderful food in the atmospheric restaurant. Walking around this painstakingly preserved hill village is a delight.

I booked and stayed for 1 night, fortunately only one night, at this Hotel. My opinion is that this hotel should be closed like hotel 4stars and converted like a simply B&B with low and right price becouse it lacks the minimum standards of comfort and quality amenities that you expect from this 4**** and furthermore the huge price paid...

The hilltop village is almost fully restored and is one of the most picturesque places I have been to. It's quaint, quiet and beautiful. I wouldn't miss the chance to visit this special place if you want to escape the hustle and bustle.

What a beautiful place, i have never stayed anywhere like this before. A lot of the buildings had bern damaged in the earthquake but are being restored. Robertta on reception was very welcoming and attentive. Our room was beautiful with an egg shape bath and balcony & shutters. Piazza Mediceo bar in the Piazza run by Davido and Patricia was... More

My husband's great grandparents are from Santo Stefano di Sessanio and we wanted to check out the village during our honeymoon. We stayed at Sextantio Albergo Diffuso for one night and it was really unique. If you can deal with simplicity in a beautiful part of Italy then definitely check out this place. We enjoyed the large bathtub after a... More

This place is unique in my experience - a remote village that was sinking into extinction, but is now being restored using authentic materials to resemble the original appearance - a romantic dream. The staff were very friendly, especially in the dining room, which is incredibly atmospheric as you feel you are eating in same room as people from centuries... More

This would actually be 3.5 not a three. But not quite a four. It's a very hard judgement call. I LOVED the location. I LOVED nearly everything involved around the hotel, which is basically intertwined in the ancient town. The room just was the straw. Especially the bed. It was very, very rustic. I've slept out, and camped in all... More

This is an unique spot. The rooms are scattered around the village. They are very minimal with original decor. Brand new and well done bathrooms but be aware: no door in the bathroom, at least in our room, and very little ventilation. An other little problem would be the lack of insulation from one room to the next, so if... More
