I have stayed in up-market hotels all over Europe and this hotel was among the best. The rooms are delightful - clean, spacious and thoughtfully appointed. We had room 15 with awesome views across the countryside. The staff were all very warm, welcoming, charismatic and truly professional. I could write a whole review on the spectacular breakfast buffet. A cold buffet, but more extensive than I have ever seen. You won't want to leave! A truly first-class hotel and reason enough to return to Cortona.
