This is the second time we have stayed in this hotel. The first was as a couple and now as a couple with a child. Both times were excellent and both times in room 214.

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

This hotel understands hospitality. I was given an extra large room with a magnificent view of the countryside. As a solo traveler I really appreciate this. The bathroom was marvelous with a large tub on a pedestal. I took a relaxing bath with soothing bath salts and olive oil soap, all products plus cozy slippers, provided by the hotel. It... More

The parlor rooms and balconies in this hotel are large and full of grandeur. We have stayed at this hotel four times (four different years). Apparently it is an old convent. The rooms are unique (each one is different) and have windows that open to incredible views of the Tuscan hills. The air-conditioning works well. Our room had a huge... More

We stayed at this hotel for 3 nights the beginning of July, in the lovely walled town of Cortona. Upon arrival we were greeted and checked in quickly, the car parked in the garage and shown to our room. The room itself was very rustic, comfortable bed and lovely bathroom. We were surprised how quiet it was. There was no... More

We stayed here for two nights in June arriving after a very long flight and a drive from Rome. Approaching the hotel on the narrow Cortona streets was really exciting, and we couldn't believe that the hotel was able to park our car, just across the street. What an introduction to Italy. Our room, on the top floor, with the... More

This hotel, which was close to the centre of Catona, was a delight. The staff couldn't have been more helpful. The room was extremely comfortable and elegant with a lovely view over the roofs of the town. Breakfast was great and set one up for the rigours of walking the streets of this outstanding walled town.
