As many others have point out, this hotel it right in the center square, mere meters from the Duomo. Which during the day gives you a wonderful view and during the evening a fantastic backdrop which is truly a sight to be seen. The hotel itself is beautiful, the rooms are small but quaint and well decorated and the service... More

We stayed here for one night. It is right there on the square near the Duomo. It was late when we checked in so they recommended a tasty restaurant and called to let them know we were coming to dine. We're glad they did because it got busy and we were seated immediately. Our room was very small but we... More

Nice room with clean lines and good amenities. Perfect location right across plaza of Duomo. Windows double glazed kept out sound. Bed was comfortable with good smooth sheets. (A bunch of hotels in italy have scratchy sheets) Shower was tiny. Air conditioning and wifi worked great. Breakfast buffet was good, Staff turned me on to a fantastic restaurant. Loved Orvieto...

We spent one night in Orvieto in May at the Hotel Virgilio. Was very pleased by what we found. Our room was on the back side so, although we did not have a view of the Duomo, we had a very quiet nite. The beds were great and the room was very large and comfortable. We would highly recommend this... More

Lovely hotel in Orvieto's best spot. We reserved a room, but the owner, very nicely, showed us a bigger one so we could choose which one would fit better our needs. The room had a nice and clean decoration, and was very quiet. Highly recommended.

This hotel is directly across from the Duomo. We had an excellent view from our room. The staff was very helpful, the hotel was kept clean and the rooms were small but nice. The breakfast was a typical Italian breakfast that was served by the receiption staff on duty in the mornings. The air conditioning was not turned on yet... More

Boutique style hotel, right in the heart of everything. The walls appear to be very thin and could easily hear our neighbor. Also the mattress was hard with no box spring mattress. Not sure if it was just our room....comfort wise we did not sleep well. However, we did enjoy the breakfast.
