This property is lovely, but the service is just not there. Firstly we couldn't get the air conditioning to work, why instructions aren't in the room? Apparently all windows & doors must be shut! There were bedside light switches but the plugs had been moved to the non linked sockets, we realised on the last night after having to unplug... More

Dear David thanks for putting this review in which we respond in two parts: 1) we want to thank you for appreciating the Borgo, the pool area and the reception staff. 2) We apologize for the unforgivable attitude of the restaurant boy, we paid attention to what you said, and we are confident to have solved the problem. In conclusion:... More

A beautiful, quite and well appointed hotel near Cortona. Friendly staff, comfortable room, lovely swimming pool and excellent restaurant. If travelling without a car, taxis are needed to/from Cortona. Also a private taxi can be arranged for a tour of Tuscan countryside and historic towns, plus vineyards. The train station is also accessible by taxi and there are fast trains... More

We've spent one night here, when visiting Cortona in July. The site is located at the foot of Cortona's hill, close to some Etruscan escavations (which we found absolutely exciting). The accomodation is quite good, a sort of luxury shelter in the warmth of early July this year. Borgo il Melone offers cozy rooms, excellent architecture (mix of buildings and... More

Stayed in suite (last minute deal)and had a lot of space for 2 people. Hotel and grounds kept very well and with a nice pools. Plentiful breakfast. Located at the foot of Cortonas hill town,...

We were a group of eight friends on a trip around Tuscany. We traveled around with a car and wanted to stay at a good, affordable hotel in or close to Cortona. Borgo il-Melone appeared to be a great choice – the pictures looked nice, the location was good, and the price seemed right. What a find!! The hotel turned... More

You should choose this hotel for it's architecture, location and the restaurant the re-opened on site (different business from the hotel itself). It has it's distinct personality on a superb setting - this is NOT the place you'll be referring to as "some hotel I've slept in". Important - it comes with a friendly, helping well trained staff.

From the moment you pull into the beautiful drive way you feel and know that you are in Tuscany. One little warning make sure you have the email instructions from the hotel on how to find the place.
