Hotel San Michele in Cortona is just that. Beautifully restored boutique hotel in the heart of the beautiful Tuscan town Cortona. The excellent central location and available parking in the hotel made it a great choice for us. Short scenic ride through theTuscan hills from Il Borro brought us to Cortona. The hotel is on a relatively narrow steep street... More

Hotel San Michele is a beautiful historic building within a very short walk to the main square, the Piazza Della Repubblica. We booked 3 rooms as we were traveling with 2 other couples for a total of 4 days. The rooms were decorated with a true tuscan feel and very spacious. Two of the rooms, #214 + #218 had terraces...

Stayed here two nights. Room was very spacious, comfortable and quiet. Although it was cool outside and there was no heating on at the time, the room was very hot and stuffy. However, keeping all the windows opened, even on a very cool night made the temperature comfortable. The front desk staff were very obliging and helpful, however, the breakfast... More
