Staff really helpful, and thank goodness spoke english! Ate at the restaurant one of the nights and couldn't fault it and the portions are very generous. Rooms are fine, comfortable, clean, with wifi and Sky TV if wanted! On the edge of town with lovely views of the mountains and walkable to the centre within 10 minutes. Large gated car... More

Loved it !! - Not like the usual basic Italian Hotels but not clinical like a chain hotel. Right in the heart of Sulmona a town larger than you might think and next to the church and football ground. Food was very good and the rooms not less than excellent. Staff worked hard to make the stay most enjoyable and... More

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.

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.

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.
