Writing my review of Hotel Fortezza whilst still here. A wonderfully historic setting sitting high above the stunning town of Sorano. You enter the hotel through the ancient castle entrance and pass through the old courtyard and we have a beautiful but simple room in the castles tower. I felt compelled to write a review before finishing our stay as... More

We spent 2 nights in this hotel, and can't wait to return. From check-in to check-out, everyone we encountered was friendly, helpful, and authentic. The rooms are comfortable with incredible views of the entire town of Sorano, clock tower, Masso Leopoldino, and surrounding hills. Sorano is a quintessential Tuscan village with enchanting streets, stone homes built on top of each... More

Commanding a magnificent view over the picturesque town of Sorano and the surrounding countryside, this is a gem of a place to stay. Big rooms, a BIG breakfast and charm oozing from its ultra-thick fortress walls. A great place to use as a base for the surrounding towns like Pitigliano. Highly recommend it. Don't miss the tour of the fortress... More

The hotel is situated in the Fortezza degli Orsini, on a 100m high tufo plug, so there is a 100m drop out of the windows, and spectacular views across the valley to troglodyte dwellings. The rooms are well equipped and comfortable, if lacking a bit in space. There is no restaurant in the hotel, but a wonderful breakfast is laid... More

We stayed here for just 1 night as part of our walking holiday and were quite amazed when we arrived there and found we were staying in a castle. In a terrific position overlooking Sorano we enjoyed our short stay here. The place is clean and the staff very helpful. The breakfast was simple but adequate and their restaurant recommendation...

The staff at this place were incredibly warm and could not have done more to make us feel welcomed. They were very attentive and helpful throughout our stay. Breakfast was served with such a smile, it made your day! Part of our holiday package was a picnic pack for the day and the lovely lady prepared it with such care... More

We were disbelieving in a drop-jawed way when having walked from Lake Bolsena we climbed up the cobbled ramp to the very top of this town and saw, across a little bridge, the fortress, and realised that yes, indeed, this was our billet for the night. Wow, and welcoming staff, so helpful. On request we sat outside the front door... More

We hiked from Lago Bolsena to this place and our jaws dropped when we got our first view. IT IS AMAZING, and yes, really magical. A true ancient fortress well converted into a simple hotel. Our room was small, but the view really made up for it! The swallows and other birds flying below us. We arrived at the hotel... More

The hotel was lovely, the staff welcoming and helpful (telling us about a tour of the Fortezza which we really appreciated): an absolutely lovely experience. The room was all view, looking out over Sorano.

La Fortezza Orsini di Sorano è uno dei più imponenti esempi di Architettura militare dell’intera Toscana,e fu una delle più importanti piazzeforti.La leggenda della “Fortezza Inespugnabile”,si tramanda tuttora e se ne può leggere nelle cronache dell’epoca ( Niccolò dell’Antella nel 1608 Scriveva a proposito della Fortezza : ……..Gli sta sopra come un falcone……e quando si è per terra…..per cosa di stupore a rimirare una fabbrica a altezza tale che quasi pare che l’occhio vi si smarrisca….) ,per tanto tempo la Fortezza di Sorano ha difeso i confini della Toscana meridionale e il Paese sottostante,a renderlo imprendibile erano: La sua posizione rafforzata dalle antiche mura e la chiusura dell’unica via di accesso dai bastioni della Fortezza Orsini.All’interno della Cittadella della Fortezza nella parte più vecchia (precedente alla ristrutturazione dell’architetto Sangallo ) dopo aver oltrepassato il ponte levatoio sul fossato nella piccola piazza si trova L’Hotel della Fortezza,dotato di 16 Camere arredate con raffinata eleganza e mobili d’epoca , dalle cui finestre si può godere di una vista mozzafiato a picco sull’antico borgo di Sorano,inoltre l’altra particolarità dell’Hotel della Fortezza è quella di avere tutte le camere diverse,per potervi regalare un soggiorno unico……………………………….. ... more   less
