The hotel is very close to the main square, and you can enjoy the peaceful atmosphere of this charming town. The building is a historical grain store and it has a very good restaurant, with local specialities, very recomendable. The attendants of the hotel were very gentle. The only default we felt was that we couldn't connect the wifi. And... More

Staying here is all about location - centre of town, but more significantly ready access to a great restaurant serving some amazing local delights. There's tartufo with just about everything. This area is a foodie's delight and this hotel is a great base to explore from. Just be sure not to skimp on the rooms, book one of the better... More

This is an old quirky hotel right in the centre of town, a minute or two from the Main Square very and I really enjoyed the local food. Many of the rooms are very small - in fact the first Room that they gave us was so small that one of us would've had to sit on the bed if... More

Having read many good reviews and wanting to stay in the center of Norcia, we were looking forward to our stay here. Unfortunately, we were disappointed. Before saying why, I do want to give accolades to the desk staff as they were welcoming, helpful and very nice. They went out of their way to serve and be pleasant. Our displeasure... More

We stayed with HF Holidays after a recommendation from our last year's guide. The hotel is old and like a rabbit warren. If you like character this is for you. If you like all mod cons and light and airy characterless rooms it isn't. The hotel staff went out of their way to be helpful and the owners are very... More

Stayed there for four nights in early June. The staff could not have been more friendly and accommodating. There was almost always someone around who could speak English. Rooms were OK, bathrooms nice and modern. Biggest complaint was the lack of light, in the halls and rooms. But the helpfulness of the staff more than made up for that. One... More

We stayed at this hotel for a week as part of a package with Holiday Fellowship. It is situated just off the main square in Norcia. The hotel has lots of character. It is not luxurious but it is charming. We had a reasonable sized room which had a balcony overlooking the street. The staff were very friendly and helpful.... More

This was our second stay in the Grotta Azzurra, and this time we brought a party of 12 friends. The best rooms are comfortable (do not go for the cheapest ones) and it is right in the heart of town. Despite this, it is quiet, as the town is largely traffic free. Staff are friendly and helpful. The restaurant is... More

There are a few much better hotels in town not the least of which is owned by the same family but its good value for money. The bedroom is somewhat old fashioned but functional. Best of all the wifi works all the time which I can't say for many hotels I've stayed in in Italy. Food and service is more... More

It was half the price of the wonderful hotel we had just stayed at on Lake Garda so I am probably being unreasonable to expect the same standards. But I did not expect to have to ask my wife to hold the shower spray for me because the fixing clip was defective, nor did I expect there would only be... More
