This weekend we stayed a night in this hotel, which we found through TripAdvisor. We received a warm welcome, got a good price and were offered coffee. When we talked about how we got there, we told the owner that we fell in love with Abruzzo after seeing the film The American with George Clooney. Then the owner told us... More

We stayed at Hotel Ovidius for one night this August, and returned for two nights this weekend. We very much enjoyed our stay on both occasions. The hotel is really well placed and is very pleasant inside. We had a lovely view of the mountains from our room, which was spacious and even had a kettle. The spa is new... More

On business trip, hotel ideally located. The room and bathroom are good. The air conditionned is working fine. Unfortunately I didn't have my swimming short, otherwise I would have tried the Spa. The parking is not easy to see, but you can get good explanations at the reception. Breakfast was Ok. At thereception, they speak a good english.

This is an ideal hotel for enjoying the beauties of Sulmona is perfect. It is on the edge of the central city. As an ancient walled city, the wall starts at the hotel. Amazing place. Very quiet and the townspeople are very happy to try to serve you. Not much english is spoken but everyone we met was very willing... More

Situated beside the large central square/gardens in the old town. The hotel was excellent with free secure parking, free wifi, a drinks patio, and simple good food in the restaurant. Rooms were modern and spacious. Liked Sulmona as much as the hotel. Paid €100 with breakfast - not the cheapest but worth it.

The room sizes were fine and at last, a king-sized bed. The air conditioning worked very well. We were lucky to get a view over the valley surrounded by... More
