“Great place in the heart of Umbria”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2011

We are a couple that stayed for 5 nights at this hotel and we have only good things to say about it. First of all the hotel is well-located making it a good base for touring Umbria, especially the central part of it including Assisi, Perugia, Spello and Spoleto. The hotel itself is set right outside the walls of Bevagna which is in itself a nice spot to come back to after a day of sightseeing.
The property is immaculate. The gardens and pool are well maintained and the rooms are large, beautifully furnished and spotless. The owner, Michael, was very helpful and this is part of what made our stay memorable.

The Residenza Porto Guelfa is a fantastic small hotel providing an excellent central base for touring the Umbrian towns, vinyards and countrside. The suites are superbly appointed with top class furnishings and equipment. This place is genuinely a real 'home from 'home. The immaculately kept gardens and pool are a great place to return to cool off after a days sightseeing. The 'hands-on' owner Micheal is very curteous and helpful and is very proud of his hotel and rightly so! He and his staff go the extra mile to ensure your stay is exactly how you would like it to be.
Due to the extensive gardens, the Porta Guelfa has a lovely 'countryside' feel to it, but you are only 2 minutes walk from the ancient walled town of Bavagne where there are numerous shops and restaurants as well as historic churches and buildings, some dating back to the 12th century. We would definately stay here again, and would have no hesitation in recommending the Porta Guelfa to anyone.

I have traveled to Italy many times (and to Bevagna as well); Residenza Porta Guelfa was a very impressive retreat after two demanding weeks traveling throughout Northern Italy. It was modern with comfortable beds, marble bathrooms, breathtaking views of the Umbrian hillside, impecably maintained grounds. The airconditioning was comfortable yet gentle (I could actually sleep with it on; something I can't even do at home!) . The pool was perfect after a hot day touring; not overly chlorinated and a perfect temperature OK: the breakfast was a little lacking, but it was nice to have the fruit and breads to munch on throughout the day; The photos don't do it justice, making it look a bit bare, but this is a very high end property at a reasonable rate. There is a comfortable sofa, tv's, kitchen in a cupboard with toaster oven and burners..what more could you ask for?
Bevagna is a lovely town, with easy access to neighboring towns. Yes, you need to be able to drive (and drive well; those neighboring hills are a challenge for the inexperienxed driver)and enjoy the simplicity of small town Italy; not for the American who vacations in Disney or Orlando. Thank goodness. Michael was a fabulous host.

Brilliant place, friendly owners, free parking. Bevagna doesn't really have anything but is an excellent base to explore. Find Col Santo winery about 5 mins drive away. They workers showed us round and then free win tasting so as a courtsey budget to buy a bottle or 2 of wine. Very good wine and great prices.
Rooms excellent, clean and roomy with Balcony.

Gret value for the money - we had a suite of rooms including large living room/kitchen, bedroom, marble bathroom, all beautifully clean and in perfect condition. Also had a private patio attached to our ground floor rooms. Breakfast deliverd to the room at time of your choosing. Excellent location at the edge of town, feeling of the countryside but easy walking distance to town. Pool and spa available. Excellent host Michael was very helpful and he keeps everything running perfectly.

We had a great stay here. We had a 2nd floor room overlooking the pool and I believe all rooms come with a very well laid out small kitchenette. The rooms are simple, but very clean and very nice - only issue is that the bed is on the harder side, wired internet connection is free but slow and bedroom is a bit small but sufficient to comfortably fit a couple. Breakfast each morning is brought to your room - croissants, cornflakes & cocoa puffs, packaged breads, etc. We supplemented by making eggs in the kitchenette. Michael (the innkeeper) is incredibly warm and congenial. Plus, the town of Bevagna is terrific and centrally located to seeing the rest of Umbria.
