We love the San Michele for its location. Cortona is a town to walk in and to watch the local folks walk in the early evening. San Michele is a block off the main square and within 3 or 4 blocks of most restaurants, bars, etc. We stayed 2 nights there for the 3rd time. Have had rooms in various... More

We made Cortona our destination during the middle of our trip to Italy. We knew it wouldn't be as hectic as Rome or Florence, and welcomed the downtime. Hotel San Michele was recommended to us, and we are ever so glad! It was a wonderful stay. We upgraded our room to a spacious suite that had a wonderful view from... More

We booked this Hotel based online reviews. It is a nice location in the old town, with ( very expensive!) parking. The hotel did not reply to our request for a parking space, so we did not find out until we got there whether we had one or not. Our room was very, very basic, even though we paid extra... More

It is a good hotel for a little old town. But the rooms is not too fresh, and the bathroom are outdated. Location excellent. Helpful hotel personnel, especially Dragazh? (yugoslav, who parked our car and brought heavy luggage and generally helped us in every possible way and advise). Magnificent view from the terrace of our suite.

The Hotel San Michele was one of the best choices we made during our July vacation in Italy. The hotel is very charming, the rooms are clean, spacious and comfortable, the breakfast is very good and very friendly staff! Another point of emphasis is the location: perfect for exploring the city on foot and return to the hotel to rest... More

Very fine and stylish hotel in a converted medieval mansion. But everything is modern, top-notch and very satisfactory. Had a fine, though not very large room with good beds, very quiet, excellent bathroom. Spotlessly clean. Good A/C. Excellent buffet breakfast which could be had in an interior garden, - very nice, indeed. But as a traveller from northern Europe I'll... More

We stayed at San Michele for four nights. The hotel staff was outstanding and went out of their way to accommodate us. The rooms are typically small but very clean and comfortable. The breakfast was excellent and included scrambled eggs, meats, pastries and cappuccino. The location is outstanding for both exploring Cortona and the surrounding areas of Tuscany. It is... More

We travelled to France and Italy on our recent trip and while we were in Venice decided to take the train to Cortona and stay for 3 nights. So we booked San Michele at an internet cafe, hoping it would be great. It fit our price range of 100 euro a night so that was the main thing. We were... More

This hotel is situated half way up one of the narrow cobbled streets leading up to the main centre of the town. It is set within the walls of the old town. We arrived after cycling 52 miles & were greated by a very welcoming receptionist. The reception area is very impressive as was the size of our room, it... More
