Stayed two nights on business at the San Michele. It is nicely located not far from the city centre. I guess my main disappointment is with the discrepancy between the web site pictures and the actual size of the room (Comfort Double): the room was okay but not as spacious as the web site would suggest. And I always tend... More

Everything worked well, the train to Terontola, the taxi in the rank at the station took us up to Cortona to the San Michele. The room was perfect with a huge bathroom, small bedroom and large bedroom lounge. Many outdoor areas to sit in and the building was an ancient building itself. Cortona was everything the travel books had eluded... More

I sat reading the reviews and the one from september last year made me think about this nightmare. It has gone several years now, but it still rated as our worst experience ever. My husband and I have travelled Italy for 28 years now, from south to north. Once in a while we book at first class hotel, just to... More

Cortona is a wonderful place for both business and leisure and has so much character! May 2010 was my second visit to the town, but my first to hotel San Michele. Together with 2 colleagues I stayed at their triple room, which was clean, spacious and nicely decorated. The bathroom was spacious and clean as well, with a good shower.... More

Wonderful little hotel right by the main piazza. Easy to walk everywhere and inside the walls with valet parking for 20 euro per night (well worth it!). VERY small bathroom.

A great loaction to explore Cortona and Tuscany. Great breakfast. As hotel parking is Euro 20, suggest you park for free just outside the town walls. My only crititism would be the small en suite bathroom but this may not be typical of other rooms. Enjoy your stay.

What a wonderful hotel, I can't say enough good things about it. The hotel has been converted from an old mansion. Our room was apparently part of the kitchen and had some of the old features in it. It also had a jacuzzi bath, what a luxurious treat. The staff were unbelievable and truly went out of their way. I... More

We spent two nights at Hotel San Michele. This is a wonderful oasis and great location to relax after Florence or Rome. We received a free upgrade to a suite - A large bed room a dressing room with a single pull out bed if needed and a very large bath with Jacuzzi. The hotel is luxuriously comfortable. The hotel...

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
