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

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.
