Super friendly staff from the young gentleman at reception, wish we remembered his name as he was great with our heavy suitcases. Nice clean hotel. Could do with a little updating bathroom wise but overall, very good and decent value for money. Super convenient location

Loved this hotel. Stayed 3 nights and they could not be more accommodating. Don't stay anywhere else. One of the few if not only hotels inside the walls. Great hotel and one of my favorite towns in Tuscany.

Breakfast was included in the room and it was served in an outdoor courtyard. Valet parking was included, and they walked me to the garage to... More

My sister, brother and I were traveling through Italy with no defined itinerary. A stop in Cortona was a last minute decision when we decided we wanted to come to Tuscany and see the hilltop towns. The hotel is located inside the walls of Cortona town. The staff were great - check in was easy and Sajid was efficient in... More

Good breakfast which includes eggs. Our room this time was large, one of the nicer ones we have had there over 12 years. Nice large... More

My husband and I have been traveling extensively in Italy for the last 25 years. For the last 15 years we've been using the same travel agent.
