The place si probably a renovated convent or pilgrim rest place; it is conveniently located just a few hundred metres away from the city centre, and offers free guest parking - somewhat rare in old medieval towns where space is a premium. The place is immaculate and has recently been renovated. Rooms are big, and in at least some cases... More

Two friends and I spent three nights at Villa Santa Margherita. It appears to have been recently renovated. The bathrooms are extremely clean as are the bedrooms. It was just what we were looking for. Quiet, with everything we needed to sleep comfortably. Not luxury,and doesn't look like much from the outside but excellent value for money. The breakfast was...

I have enjoyed a lot the hospitality of Suore Servi di Maria Riparatrici sisters. They run a nice villa, at five minutes walk outside the old town, with simple but comfortable rooms. Parking is included, which is hard to find in the old Cortona city. Their breakfast is very basic but hearty; coffee is not available.

You get to the top by Car where you see this huge Holy Place. Its also a good place to park your car and walk down to Cortona. It takes around 30 minutes and you get to know Cortona thoroughly passing the University of Georgia's Faculty of Art. You also have a fantastic view of Lake Trasimeno and surrounding Villages....

when we booked this hotel we didn't know it was ex convent. It is maybe bit old fashion, but room was big, nice and clean. Only minus is that there's no aircondition. the convent atmosphere of the place is strong - at breakfast even our kids were sitting calm and eating! NB. we're not religious, but the place was giving... More

We have stayed here for many years from when the old part of the convent was run by nuns when it was old fashioned, linen & towels were mismatched and old but everything was scrupulously clean and it was an oasis of calm and the nuns so sweet and so helpful. Our good friend Angela started administrating there on our... More

Peaceful and not crowded. Not sure about the saint's relics - strange to see. You can drive up there but the hike is a good one with stations of the cross along the way. Inspiring.

The location is great, and the rooms are big and very clean. The breakfast is OK, but there's not much variation. You have to pay 1 euro per day to use the internet, but it doesn't work in the rooms and in the common areas it's also really weak. If several people try to use it at once, you cannot... More

The location of this hotel is an easy walk up the hill to the main entrance to the old town area. When we arrived the staff was too busy with their computer to pay attention to us. We checked in and when I asked about the free high speed internet listed as an amenity on Trip Advisor, I was told... More
