An ItaloCanadian family of 4 adults: we spent 3 days at the Santa Croce Hotel. The place, the location and the people were amazing. I know Sulmona well as I go to Italy often. This was my first stay at this hotel and it will not be the last. The rooms were large and clean. Ample parking. Great breakfast and... More

The staff are really really friendly and nice, especially the lady at the front desk. They provided a bottle of champaign with a very nice note in our room since it was my birthday. The spa is very nice and clean. We enjoyed our stay very much and are planning to go back again. The breakfast was good too. The... More

Just returned from the last-minute-planned getaway stay with Hotel Ovidius. We took a discounted package for a double room plus free entrance to the spa facilities for 2. As we took the room at the end of the holiday when most of the people were already heading back to big cities, we were able to enjoy the tranquility and all... More

We chose this Hotel at the end of the day after having to move out of another previously booked 4 Star Hotel in Sulmona which did not come up to our expectation. This Hotel is just outside the ZTL zone with a great restaurant & secure free car parking on site with a lift from the car park to your... More

Not one negative comment regarding this hotel, room cleanness, staff and location. Staff is very friendly and helpful. Walking distance to local restaurants, shopping, churches and local park across the street for relaxation.

We stayed for only one night and had a nice quiet room. Location in the center of the city with a big park nearby. We had both lunch and dinner at the hotel. Not expensive but also very average food. Restaurant was almost empty on both occassions. Pity as the Place is real nice. Parking was free and secure.

I have had the pleasure of staying at both the Santacroce Ovidius and Santacroce Meeting and will always choose them whenever I am in Sulmona. The hotels are impeccably clean, beautifully appointed, and the staff is supremely professional. The owners are always on sight and are extremely helpful in planning day trips. The food is superb at both restaurants. Save... More
