L'aquila is a great looking city. Unfortunately, it is still recovering from the devastating 2009 earthquake. We stopped here on the way to Rome, and didn't realize that there would be so few hotel options. Thankfully the Hotel San Michele was operating and had a room available. The young man at the front desk was incredibly helpful. Our room was... More

A nice, clean hotel, close to the city center. Helpful staff, good breakfast (cold cuts and cheese, plus a vast assortment of traditional Italian breakfast items, from yoghurt to biscuits, cakes, pastries, fruit and cereals), cable TV and wireless internet service in every room. Couldn't ask for more at 60 euro per night. The city is still virtually empty -... More

In a city still hard hit but a 2009 earthquake, the San Michele was an oasis. The staff was extremely helpful with directions. Our rental GPS hadn't been updated and there were many road closures and detours. The staff was great at keeping us on track. Morning breakfast was outstanding. While rooms are small, they're well appointed, and have great... More

I just stayed there overnight while on business to L'Aquila and found this to be very comfortable and reasonably priced. The front desk staff all spoke excellent English and the breakfast staff were very attentive. If you don't want the standard coffee at the breakfast table you are more than welcome to have a more specialized coffee (Cafe lungo, cafe... More

Hotel San Michele in centro L'Aquila is an oasis amongst buildings silenced by the earthquake of 2009. I consider it my own little find and have stayed there many times. It's quiet, sunny, and staffed with caring young people.

We stayed one night on a short trip to see the snow from Rome. The hotel was just what we wanted: welcoming, warm, clean and with a lovely view of snowy peaks over the rooftops. L'Aquila is still sadly devastated by the 2009 quake and it's hard to see whether rebuilding is going on or if a lot of buildings... More

We spent two nights at Hotel San Michele near the end of November as we wanted to see how L'Aquila was faring after the 2009 earthquake. The hotel was very comfortable, the room was warm, spacious and very clean. Very nice bathroom as well. We got a 4th floor room so we'd have some view and it was nice to... More

We visited L'Aquila in September this year. We stayed at San Michele twice as we travelled to the smaller nearby villages and L'Aquila was our connection point to transit. In the center of what is now a ghost town since the earthquake in 2009, this hotel is within walking distance of the historic sites. Reception staff is outstanding, speak very... More

I have been here for work. Staff were very courteous and welcoming. The hotel is renovated and very comfortably placed within reach of most beautiful sites in the centre of L'Aquila. Very clean, good breakfast, helpful staff. Good quality/price ratio.
