We booked into this hotel after reading the reviews on Trip advisor. We were certainly not disappointed. The room we stayed in was large, clean and was beautiful. The historical features of the hotel were superb. There was a library available with books about the history of the hotel for historians out there. Looking disheveled, (We are bikers!) The welcome...

We recently had a one night stay at the Palazzo Seneca in Norcia. My only disappointment was that we weren't able to stay longer than we did. The welcome was fantastic but it doesn't compare to the fab feeling when our room was presented to us. Utterly wonderful! Spacious, bright and fantastic bathroom facilities. Great value for money. I couldn't... More

Very pleasant overnight stay. Beautiful rooms, lots of little salons and libraries...The Breakfast is a masterpiece! Lots of attention to details. Very informative staff. If we go back to Norcia and the Sibillini mountains, we will definitely go back.

Perhaps I am being a little harsh in my rating of this hotel but when I compare it to other places we stayed at during our 3 weeks tour of Italy and when I consider the cost it was disappointing. The old property is beautifully appointed but so lacking in atmosphere, for the most part it looks 'staged' and one... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our week long stay at the Palazzo Seneca. The room was modern, very clean and nicely decorated. The ambience and elegance of this hotel are lovely. All staff are always working hard to provide the best of service. I would highly recommend it.

This is a first rate hotel and the staff are most accommodating and friendly....everything is possible! The rooms are beautiful with small veranda to enjoy morning coffee. We were treated to the spa and rejuvenating tea from David.....just what we needed after a week of trekking in the Sibillini Mountains. Many thanks to Stefano and Serena for a memorable stay.

So many positive reviews, that I don't really know what else can be said about this very nice property and about the very attentive staff. The family Bianconi made very great efforts to refurbish the building keeping some of the main points of the original style, like the floor probaly dated back XVI century. The sofa room and library room... More

We spent 2 nights in the Palazzo Seneca over the black truffle festival (Nero Norcia, 28 Feb - 2 March 2014). We were efficiently transported to the hotel from the Best Western Hotel as the old town was closed off because of the festival.
