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

First the strong points.... 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. On the other hand, I've given the average rating based on some issues with the room. The decor... More

We checked into the hotel for seven days in May. On the first day we noticed that there was no remote control for our air conditioner. We asked for one every day and it took the hotel five days to get one for us. Each day there was a different excuse from the front desk. When we did receive the... More

The rooms vary from miniscule to adequate but are clean. The beds are narrow and hard. The food is bland, bland, bland. Although all our meals were pre paid we choose to go to the local pizza cafe for a wonderful tasty fresh pizza instead of dry meat, more bones than meat and cold wilted vegies And ordinary desserts lacking...

Dear Madam , I am Vincenzo Bianconi one of the owners of the Hotel Grotta Azzurra. I'm sorry that it was not satisfied with her stay. I need to make some clarifications and explanations to his observations that respect but do not agree. The rooms are as you say between small and medium , I would add that we have... More

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
