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.

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

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

The location is very close to the center of Cortona, the staff is very helpful, everything is really clean, quiet place. There are no telephone and TV in the rooms, but for whom is looking for a nice place for sleeping, the institute is perfect. I highly recommend it!

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
La Villa Santa Margherita e un Albergo ad una stella di proprieta delle suore Serve di Maria Riparatrici, una famiglia religiosa che nasce sul finire dell'Ottocento a Vidor (Treviso), per iniziativa della venerabile Serva di Dio M. Elisa Andreoli, e di altre sue compagne. L'ospitalita e uno dei modi con cui le suore realizzano il loro servizio e la loro comunione con i fratelli. I servizi ricettivi erogati, che per confort e dotazioni, posso essere equiparati ad una struttura alberghiera, sono gestiti da personale laico alle dipendenze dell'Istituto Religioso. ... more   less
