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

We stayed here in San Michele last week and it was a fabulous experience. The rooms (we were 3 couples) were beautiful, clean and very comfortable. The front desk helped with every aspect of our stay and we are still talking about the fabulous breakfast!

We spent three nights in this wonderful hotel. The location is on a side straight off the main square, with free parking down the hill outside the city wall. The room was comfortable and well-appointed. The service was excellent, and the hotel staff was welcoming and helpful. Breakfast was a treat - great food, a beautiful room and friendly servers....

Hotel San Michele was our base for visiting Tuscany and we enjoyed it thoroughly. The staff was very friendly and extremely helpful. The hotel itself is formerly a private residence (must have been a huge home) and has lovely old world charm. Our room was spacious, very clean and comfortable and definitely a great, reasonable price. The hotel has a... More
