“Stay October 2011”
Reviewed October 17, 2011

We only stayed here for one night and that really was enough. If you are looking to book somewhere near Urbino there must be better places, take heed of the previous reviews on trip advisor.

The positives are that the location is perfect, with free parking right outside.

The negatives are, whilst on first looking it seems like a 4 star hotel, but it definitely is not. The rooms are quite shabby really with hard pillows, mould in the shower, very strange shower set up with changing water temperatures, hair dryer that has no power so takes an age to dry your hair, for 2 people one bath towel and what seemed to be a thin bed cover to use after your shower!! Four star hotels dont charge for wifi either but this one does. Breakfast is 11 euro each, but if you just walk to the piazza you can pay around 6 euro for 2 people.

Urbino was lovely but the hotel was a dissappointment.

Room Tip: Dont stay in any of them you can do better

This hotel is just inside the city walls. Great location. Has a good restaurant. Parking is free which was a pleasant change. Easy access to all the tourist spots.

This hotel saved our bacon when we showed up late afternoon without a reservation. They gave us an excellent, quiet double, overlooking the shaded patio, and threw in a complimentary breakfast. And what a breakfast it was; among the best on our two weeks in Italy. The young front desk receptionists were extremely helpful and understanding.
The bed was comfortable, the a.c. worked well, the bathroom was spotless and large, all very nice. Especially nice was the location - just inside the city walls with free parking just outside the hotel door (really important in Urbino). It was a stiff, but short, 2-3 block walk up to the main level of the city.
Don't miss walking around Urbino. We made a special trip up from our Umbria vacation just to the the Palazzo Ducale museum and it would have been worth it at twice the distance. And the rest of the small city is delightful.

Comfortable bed, good breakfast, excellent position but our room furnishings and towels were rather worn - didn't feel 4-star.

We booked this hotel witout first checking the reviews and, when we did, wondered whether we'd made the wrong choice. We needn't have worried though as it was excellent. Our room was down one floor from reception and was neatly finished in exposed brick, well equiped and had a door leading to a private, sheltered terrace with table, chairs and sun recliners.. The glass walled bathroom was a bit quirky but has clearly been chosen to allow excellent facilities without decreasing the apparent size of the room.
Hotel staff were all friendly and helpful and the breakfasts, although apparently fairly expensive, were pretty much in line with those that we found everywhere else in Italy - perfectly adequate and well presented.
The walk from the bus stop does involve a steep climb followed by an equvalent descent but, we didn't find this to be a problem - anyone who is not particularly fit or has a large amount of luggage would need to take a taxi to cover the fairly short distance.
All in all, we loved the hotel and thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this beautiful town.

Bonconte is a nice hotel with all the modern amenities, but beware - the rooms are pretty small! We had a Double Executive Room and there was very little walking space. The bathroom is also small, but was well setup. Our biggest complaint was probably that we were on the street level and cars parked right under/at our window. When we tried to open up the shudders and the two windows in your room, people getting out of their car would literally be looking right into your room (this happened to us a couple of times). We ended up just keeping our two windows and shudders shut, which was a shame because it has a breathtaking view of the countryside. We would stay in this hotel again, however, we would book a room on the 2nd floor where you have more privacy.
Urbino is an amazing city. We've been to Italy 3 times and this is, by far, one of the best places to visit.

Located at the edge of Urbino, Hotel Bonconte is a gracious, comfortable place to stay for your visit. The staff is attentive and accomodating. While you can't avoid the steep streets, the hotel is located near the center of the town, where all the action is. Evenings are lively in the central piazza and students are everywhere. Of the hotels we stayed at on our tour of Italy, this was the only one that charged for breakfast.
