Our traditionally furnished in the old building was clean, comfortable, and quiet. We ate in the Hotel restaurant where the food was delicious and the menu offered us something different every night. The staff there and at reception were efficient, helpful and charming. The hotel was very busy especially at the weekends but the staff smiled as they flew around.... More

This hotel is conveniently located in the charming town of Norcia and we will certainly return to the town again. But we probably will not stay at this accommodation. We need a steady and reliable internet service when we travel and we did not have it here, though the management was gracious and steered us to another hotel they own,... More

Dear Samba, We would like to thank you for choosing our hotel during your visit in Norcia. Unfortunately during your stay there were a few problems, about the wi-fi, in our area due to the operator of the system, which they spent a few days to solve the trouble. We are pleased to know that the solution found to solve... More

Our room was clean and spacious and comfortable, and right in the old town, which was kind of fun. We were able to park short-term next to the hotel to load and unload, and then park just outside the town at the Best Western. My only complaint about the room was that it was very dark, added to by dark... More

My 79 year old father and I spent several days in Norcia and the wonderful Bianconis took great care of us at the Grotta Azzurra (excellent meals!), the Best Western Salicone (where we slept, an easy walk to the city gate), and the spa at Palazzo Seneca (highly recommended).

this nice hotel is located in the middle of Norcia's old center. It is as convenient as it gets for a public transport traveler. however, this is not a big city so almost every location is equally as good. My room (153) was huge - a bath room, a shower room, a large room with a sofa and big TV... More

This hotel is in the very centre of Norcia. It is converted from an old granary and as a result has character and quirkiness. The hotel is owned and run by the same family as the Best Western on the outskirt of town and also its immediate neighbour, a luxury 5 star hotel. So there are rooms to suit all... More

We had a great time at this hotel with HF Holidays on a walking week. Staff were great and all very friendly. Excellent food - 5 course meals. Great location just off the main square in a town filled with history - museum well worth visiting plus all the local shops with pork products and cheeses. Also wonderful little bakeries... More

This was our 2nd stay here, and we had not booked. Hadn't realised it was a holiday long weekend so were disappointed when we were told there were no rooms available in the main hotel. However, Carlos on reception was fantastic. He took us to an annexe of the hotel and showed us a huge room which was perfectly fine.... More

The location in the town center is great, staff were very friendly and professional, the bed was very comfortable, the air conditioning worked well, the room was a nice size and the continental breakfast had a decent selection.
