Finding a hotel in Urbino is a nightmare – a series of one way streets, no cars allowed in the old city unless you're a resident and very poor signage. After driving around the walls for some time we came upon a sign for this hotel. We decided to stay since it looked fine and the price was right. The hotel is older than it looks and it does have a feel of benign neglect to it. The disinfectant smell is everywhere in the hotel. Our room was quite large and the windows overlooked the beautiful valleys. The room was clean and bright. We opened the windows to clear out the disinfectant smell and used the air conditioner during the night to bring in fresh air. The bathroom was fine, except for the small shower enclosed with a shower curtain that either could have been cleaned or changed. The towels were cotton waffle weave and not very absorbent. The television was a good size and had BBC. Breakfast was very good with a wide variety of choices, including boiled eggs.
The hotel is about 10 minutes by car from the old city. There is a 24 hour pizzeria near the hotel that serves excellent pizza at a good price.
Overall the hotel was quiet, with nice views of the valley, near the old town by car and restaurants. It has free parking and free WIFI in the lobby. It was a good hotel for us for one night, allowing to visit the beautiful old city of Urbino. The hotel could figure out a way to get rid of the disinfectant smell and give the whole complex a brightening up. The furniture in the lobby and restaurant was beautiful, solid wood antique- looking pieces.
