Great Room, great view on Gran Sasso Mountains, sweet accomodation and silence everywhere. The hotel is all around the "borgo". Continental Breakfast is very good and around The town you can find lot of typical and cheap places to eat. food is great. And if you want to escape from this peaceful situation, there's a fast Wi-Fi line avaiable. Raccomanded... More

What an incredible experience to stay in a hotel that once housed people hundreds and hundreds of years ago! Sitting at 1250 metres above sea level atop a hill in the Abruzzo Region rooms are scattered in the old fortified medieval village of Santo Stefano. The atmosphere was next to none and the experience of wondering along cobblestoned streets in... More

We were gifted with a voucher to stay in this hotel and I was very much looking forward to spend a couple of days with my husband in Abruzzo and in this hotel, as I was given very good recommendations. The hotel itself was nice, however the management was very poor. The first day we arrived we were provided with... More

Always wanted to stay here and was not disappointed. Imagine a hotel in a rugged village setting, cobblestones, hidden doorways,attention to detail to preserve as it would have been a very long time ago. So romantic, so outside of the box. The clouds were beliw us most nights and mornings. Not for people with mobility issues.

Certainly authentic recreating ambience of 200 years ago but hard trestle beds and gloomy lighting made for an uncomfortable and depressing stay considering this is an expensive "hotel". No staff hospitality or service. Food in restaurant basic and poor - again very gloomy. There was a bath in the middle of our bedroom but no shower facilities at all not... More

It was a dark and stormy day. We were happy to find the hotel reception area snuggled into the hillside village. We were shown to our suite which was not too far from the reception area. The rooms are scattered about this restored work-in-progress. We had to climb a flight of slippery wet steps to a big wooden door opened... More

Staying in this hotel can only be described as incredible and unique. Created in a restored, medieval village the hotel rooms are dispersed throughout a number of village houses so all the rooms are different. Each house seems to have about 5 rooms, though some may beamed up of multiple rooms. All are decorated with handmade bed spreads, wooden furniture... More

About a year ago, I came across this hotel online and fell in love. When we got married in Italy and decided to stay for our honeymoon, there was one place that was a must: the Albergo Diffuso. What can I say, I was not disappointed. Located in the mountains of Abruzzo, the medieval town and scenery are breathtaking. The... More

I saw this hotel written up in a posh guide at another very good hotel I stayed at - the Signum on Salina. Abruzzo villages are not long of comfortable hotels, so we arranged to meet four friends at this one which seemed to be better than most. It's hard not to think that it's a confidence trick!
