This is my second visit here and it was just as charming as the first. The staff are just great. Denissia organised some snow chains for me to keep me legal. The guys always go out of their way to help. Hoping to return soon for more hill walking and golf.

No bellman service. The restaurant which was supposed to be open was closed and I was told to walk about half a mile to another restaurant in the city late at night if I wanted to have dinner. I waited at the counter for 10-15 minutes for anyone to come out to service it. Mini bar was only a few... More

In Sulmona there are 2 Santacroce hotels: one called Ovidius and one called Meeting. We stayed in Ovidius, which is located conveniently close to the centre of Sulmona. Our room was nice, but rather small, and on the expensive side. The bathroom was (somewhat) outdated and the shower temperature was not constant (sometimes really too hot all of a sudden).... More

During our 3 week trip touring Italy we stayed in many different hotels from Rome to Florence to Amalfi/Sorrento. Ovidius was right at the top for quality, service, welcoming staff and food. Made our trip to Sulmona so nice. It's also located 2 min walk from town where you can get almost anything you need.

Excellent Hotel staff, overall agreeable and cosy ambiance (except for the noisy music in the lift), good restaurant for dinner and flexible cooks and waitress, lovely view from windows, excellent parking, very good SPA. The room was a bit small, however, and the shower booth's doors shaky. The latter can be easily fixed.
