This hotel located in Cortona in Eastern Tuscany is located in a superb historic building. It is full of character. It seems to have been a private residence at one stage. Our room had a TV and a minibar. Room was large and had a very comfortable bed. Unusually for a 4 star hotel there was no stationery in the... More

Stayed here for 3 nights during a band tour through Italy, and had a wonderful time. The building is beautiful and conveniently located to restaurants and shops. The hallways and floors seem to be different sizes and angles, which really reminds you that you're staying in a historic building. Bathroom amenities were great, and I appreciated the toiletry kits provided... More

Hotel San Michele is a spectacularly romantic hotel! My husband and I spent 3 nights during our wedding here. It is located near many restaurants that offer amazing food. The staff went above and beyond and was even able to arrange shipping my wedding dress back to the states ahead of us. Our suite was spacious and offered a view... More

I would definitely stay here in a heartbeat. It was a beautiful historic building that you can drive up to (and leave car near hotel in paid parking or down at the bottom of the hill for free). When you walk into the hotel, in front of you there is a little open area in the middle where the sun... More

Stayed here 3 nights in July and discovered on the third morning that someone had taken money (several hundred euros), a book and shoe cover from a suitcase. No safes available in individual rooms. We told the front desk staff ( a lady) who just listened and asked us who we thought did it. No apology was given or an... More

Had a great visit, the hotel arranged our cabs to and from the train station so we didn't have to worry. They gave us a map of the area & suggested various local restaurants. Staff were very friendly! Only downfall was the key card had to be inserted into an area on the wall just inside the door, this allowed... More

We are staying tonight here and are very pleased with the size of the room, a suite, and it has a large bathroom with wonderful bath products along with robes. There is a terrace that is for our private use only and the views are unrivaled. The air conditioning works supremely which is nice here with ninety degree temperatures in... More

We loved our three-night stay in Cortona. Our family of six was able to fit into two rooms (mom and dad into one room, the four 18+ kids in a two-room, four bed suite). Great views from our room out to the Tuscan countryside. Perfect location in the heart of Cortona. You step our the front door and you are... More

We enjoyed our stay in Cortona, thanks in part to the terrific staff at the Hotel San Michele, who took good care of us and our rental car with courtesy, friendliness, and helpfulness. We stayed there for seven nights in April, using it as a base for exploring many of the wonderful hill towns in Tuscany and in nearby Umbria.... More
