Not easy to get to as it is in the centre of the old town. However, worth the effort. The proprietor has beautifully refurbished the building to a very high standard and the rooms are excellent. Very clean rooms, breakfast was good and the owner was an excellent hostess.

I don't know where to begin singing the praises of Marta, Alessandro, Carmen and Il Marchese del Grillo. This was our 3rd time in Sulmona in 5 years. We have the Abruzzo “bug” since my family came from there. I was taken by the photos of this B&B and it's location in the historic district and decided to try it.... More

I would recommend Il Marchese del Grillo as a base to explore Sulmona and the surrounding area. Plus points: it's location (very central and within easy walking distance of the town's restaurants), friendly helpful owner and fantastic rooftop terrace where a good breakfast (fruit, homemade cakes, ham, cheese, bread and good coffee) is served. The only real negative is that... More

Our experience at Il Marchese was nothing short of spectacular. Everything about the accommodations was top notch. Very comfortable rooms, spectacular breakfasts, enchanting location, and attentive and engaged hostess made our stay extremely enjoyable.

Marta the owner kept saying "just feel as if you are in your own home" and that is the way that it felt to us. With her envoursgement, we helped ourselves to coffee, teas and biscuits whenever we wanted. Anytime we wanted, we could go up to the rooftop terrace to enjoy a picnic lunch or just a coffee and...

A boutique B&B in the old town centre of Sulmona. Just 4 double rooms, but each with its individual character and antique furniture. 360-view of the surrounding mountains from the roof terrace, where you can have breakfast in the warm season. The host is marvelous, super helpful and friendly. She is full of tips and recommendation about the area. Finding... More

This place looked so much better then the sad hotels in town. With style and personality the rooms we saw were all lovely and unique. Sadly in winter the rooftop breakfast is not an option Great restaurant recommendations from the hostess Marta.

Marta the owner of this quaint, boutique B&B does everything within her power to make sure her guests are welcomed, fed and happy. This said, it has modern bathrooms and conveniences. The fabulous breakfast on the rooftop overlooking the town in this picturesque town and valley is pastoral. You are close to the center of town and restaurants. Definitely a... More

Easy walk to everything in the centro, not far from the big parking area outside town, this is a great location and a very nice place to stay. The rooms are large and have old charm, even though the property has been modernized. Bathrooms are bigger than you'll find in many Italian b&bs or boutique hotels. Breakfast is good and... More

This was a great place to stay for an evening in Sulmona. Marta was very thorough and on top of every detail. The building was recently remodeled and very clean. The view from the rooftop deck is amazing. The homemade breakfast of local favorites was the perfect start to our day. I highly recommend and look forward to our next... More
