We stayed here for a wedding in August 2014. The hotel was ideal, in the perfect location of the old town and it was spotless. All the staff were so helpful, there was one staff member in particular who couldn't do enough for us - Jude. We have already recommended this hotel to family and friends.

An overnight stay in Orvieto is highly recommended, and the Hotel Palazzo Piccolomini is an excellent choice for the historic district of town. During certain weeks during the summer, rooms are at half price, making the property a real value. Strong points: Very courteous staff, extremely clean, extremely comfortable mattress and pillows, flat screen satellite TV, high-quality breakfast with scrambled... More

The bed was very comfortable and the room decor was in line with the towns atheistic, my window looked out onto a lantern lit street and was magical. The breakfast was nice, I'm a toast kind of girl but there was cereals and meats and cheese as well as scrambled eggs - they also had blood orange juice which is... More

First time visiting Italy and had a four night stay here as invited to a wedding nearby, The hotel is quiet and cosy in perfect location for exploring Orvieto. It was great value and staff were so friendly. Orvieto itself is like a trip back in time. Little of the town seems to have changed much since the old days... More

For several years we passed Piccolomini going to and from the elevator to the car park and always thought we would love to stay a night because it looked so attractive. This year we got our chance and in every respect it exceeded our expectations. It was way more beautiful inside than we had imagined with excellent service and the... More

I cannot speak highly enough of this hotel - great value for money. My family have stayed here twice a year for the past 12 years on our way to and from the south of Italy and we have always had a good experience. First of all, very convenient for the city centre with a car park ,which it has... More

I've been staying here for more than a dozen years and each time I arrive, reservation or not, I am greeted with warmth, hugs and big smiles. This is a small, family owned hotel, once a palazzo to royal Italians. The rooms are simple, clean, different sizes, good beds and most of all, very responsive staff. The staff rarely changes...

The service was pretty awful. The front desk staff was unfriendly and not very helpful, even going so far as to insist that we didn't need a dinner reservation when we asked them to make one for us, and sending us to a restaurant that was full, and another that was closed. Turns out, a reservation would have been useful!... More

I recently stayed at this hotel for eight nights while I was exploring Umbria by auto. The staff was very accommodating and helpful. The car parking area was a bit of a walk from the hotel and every morning one of the staff (generally the woman who takes care of the breakfast area and who is delightful) would have to... More
