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

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
