I think we would have enjoyed this hotel if we had been more careful in choosing our room. We had a relatively small window looking out onto a small dark courtyard. The room itself was pleasant enough, very clean with a spacious bathroom. The hotel is in a perfect location to explore Cortona. Close enough to walk everywhere. I guess the reason I am giving it less than a perfect rating is, for me, without a nice view and lots of natural light the room did not measure up to my expectations.
