Stayed here in June 2015 with my family. We had three rooms, all were exceptionally clean. From the outside the hotel looks quaint and old world, inside it is very modern, lots of white marble, and clean, a/c worked well. It is very well run. Breakfast was very good. We arrived early but they allowed us to leave our luggage... More

This was certainly a very charming and quaint hotel centrally located to top sights in the town. Hotel was very clean, rooms were spacious, bed comfortable and AC was nice and cold. I was skeptical because of previous reviews, and almost cancelled but David and Alexander assured me this was not true. Breakfast was good and provided many foods from... More

Dear all, If you are reading my review you found it very interesting. I don't know all the other guests, but I suppose they want to find something wrong in this hotel that really doesn't exsist. First of all the little hotel is the new one on the hill, directly on the main square and the view is amazing (you... More

I wish I had of read the previous TripAdvisor reviews prior to staying at Hotel Vigilio. I am however grateful that we only ended up staying for one night, as even that was one night too many in this substandard dwelling. My girlfriend, her baby and I stayed at hotel Vigilio, Orvieto for 1 night in rooms 22 & 23.... More

1 day ago my 2 friends and I, with a 1 year old, walked in to book 2 rooms. We needed 1 room for 1 person and 1 room for 1 person and an infant. This was confirmed and a deposit paid. We booked a single with space for a cot and a economy double. We went back to check... More

Rude staff, tiny rooms (you can barely move!), not soundproofed. Breakfast was the worst of our trip. Location nice but recommend staying elsewhere, there are many other hotels closeby. Would advise family and friends against staying.

Stay away from us, we have to tell to you. These words are defamatory and they do not correspond to the reality. The reality is that we have given to you a cleaned room, included the wall under the television and the blanket. The cleaning lady and the staff have found at the check out a room with the wall...

The only positive here is the view. Tiny, cramped room and very noisy and the worst staff we have ever encountered! Rude at breakfast (we were not offered coffee unlike the italian tourists who arrived after us - we had to find the waiter to ask) and then on our departure, accused us of having damaged the paint on the...

We were on a small group tour and our guide was thrilled we could stay at Hotel Virgilio. She was absolutely right. Our room opened on the square facing the Orvieto Duomo which was a wonderful site, especially in the evening light. The rooms were clean and comfortable. There was an elevator for those of us with heavy luggage. The... More

The downside of staying here first: the breakfast was definitely disappointing, with no fresh bread, and poor coffee. However, the location of this little hotel is superb, right on the cathedral piazza. Staff were welcoming and the bed comfortable and the décor - obviously recently refurbished - clean and comfortable. It provided a nice one-night stay before heading up the... More
