Perfect little place in the center of town. Stayed for two nights with two young children. Yes stairs are a bugger, especially in the ninety degree weather. But Maria is very lovely and helpful. Breakfast was simple but adequate. We arrived on a Thursday and left on a Saturday. These are the two days there are markets on the square... More

Lovely little B&B right in the centre of Orvieto. The owner is very friendly, and the place is nice and clean. The only draw back is probably breakfast: no local food, but supermarket - packaged stuff.

We spent one night in Orvieto. Be prepared to climb some stairs! This was a charming room. Had all the basics, although the shower was the smallest that I have ever seen--about 2ft x 2ft square. Very sparse breakfast compared to all the other B&B's in which we stayed. Also a bit difficult to find. Luckily, we came across a... More

Our recent visit to Orvieto was a memorable and enjoyable one, thanks in part because of (owner/proprietor) Maria's hospitality and friendliness when we arrived at B&B La soffitta. Maria is a world traveler and I enjoyed speaking with her (in Spanish) about her travels to Argentina, the US, New Zealand, etc. She was also very accommodating with our request to... More

This is a very charming B & B that has draw backs. The B & B could be enhanced with a few additions, such as pictures. The first draw back was the 52 spiraling stairs leading to our room. If you dally down the stairs, the light automatically shuts off and leaves you in the dark. The owner's daughter did... More

We drove into Orvieto in a large Ford SUV and the streets were a little hairy at first. We found the Inn and Maria, the owner, was absolutely charming. We looked at the spiral staircase going up and decided to get what we needed from our suitcases and leave them in the car. The room we had was a suite.... More

The train station is just across from the funicular to the upper city making it easy to walk to Orvieto’s city center. It’s just a 15 minute stroll up the main street and then that’s where my directionally impaired mind went wrong. I had difficulty finding the B&B and arrived frustrated. However, the gracious hostess, Maria was very kind and... More

We love Orvieto wine, and were looking for a quintessential hill town to visit. Orvieto was perfect for a two night stay and B&B La Soffita was the perfect place to stay. Wonderful accommodations overlooking the Piazza Del Popolo in Orvieto. The most welcoming innkeeper met in our travels! Maria is truly concerned for your well being! Spotlessly clean, and... More

Speaking a little Italian can be dangerous thing but with Maria, in the beautiful city of Orvieto, all's well that ends well. I phoned Maria, as she requested, when we arrived in Orvieto. I tried to tell her that we were at the bottom of the funiculare but she thought we were at the top. A few phone calls later... More
