This hotel is perfectly located in the heart of Cortona, with the added bonus that they can take care of your car for you. We were very pleased with Daniele who greeted us at the reception and made an excellent restaurant recommendation for La Loggietta, it was a fantastic dinner overlooking the piazza in front of the church a few...

We found San Michele after having some problems with our previous hotel, also in Cortona. The front Desk (Nicolo) were superb! Very nice indeed, and so was the bell man that helped us that day. The room was nice and big. I would like to leave my personal appreciation to this hotel staff.

We were delighted at our choice of hotel, and being able to drive right up to the front entrance. Hotel provides garage parking @ 20 euros per night. Probably worth while if you do a lot of walking around Cortona. The alternative is free parking outside the town walls - if you are fortunate to find a space! Be aware... More

Very romantic hotel right in the middle of the old town – wonderful room with a view over the valley and beyond – totally spectacular. The hotel is grand with big living rooms on each floor; our room and bathroom were beautifully furnished and clean. Breakfast was served in the court yard or breakfast room and was very good. The...

Staying in the ancient town of Cortona Tuscany was a dream come true. Having that dream completed by staying at the amazing Hotel San Michele in what is known as the honeymoon suite up the steep steep stairs, was truly an experience I will remember for a lifetime. Romantic, fantastic service, glorious food. A must do when in Italy. We... More

Really a worthwhile and agreeable hotel to stay at. Had adjoining rooms looking out to the street. Pleasant staff breakfast good. Recommendable. Parking can be a problem, outside city walls is a possibility however, be patient!

It's a great room with a spacious terrace overlooking the roofs of corona and across to the mountains and lake trasimeno. A wonderful place to... More

The staff of this hotel were excellent. We were initially given a room next to the elevator, which we realized very quickly was going to be very noisy, as you could hear other guests rolling luggage and talking. I went downstairs and talked to Matteo, who immediately and without a second of hesitation, contacted the bellman, Sajid, and we switched... More
