“Great, Friendly Hotel in Urbino”
Reviewed July 18, 2013 via mobile

Hotel Albergo is in the center of Urbino near the Piazzo. It has a wonderful friendly staff who speaks English well. As most hotels in Italy, it is located on a no through traffic zone, so make sure to give the front desk your license plate number, so you don't get a dreaded Italian parking ticket.

The rooms are comfortable and spacious. Wi-Fi is extra at 1 Euro per day per device. If you have two devices and will not be using the Wi-Fi at the same time, you are golden.

Parking is extra but there are spaces in the city for free which we did.

Plenty of restaurants around the hotel. The room was adequate and clean. Bathroom was spotless.

Breakfast was included on an outdoor veranda. Coffee, Danish, yogurt, fruit, and tea. I would return in a New York second! Thank you to Madeline and her staff for a job well done.

I had preferred to stay at a different hotel, but that one was a bit pricey and the rates at Albergo Italia were more moderate. For our one night there, it was a very satisfactory choice. The front desk staff was helpful in every respect. And as everyone else has noted, the location cannot be beat. It was no problem negotiating the parking lot and the lift from the parking lot to Urbino left us down the block from the hotel, a short, convenient walk. The rooms were comfortable and adequately furnished, rather generic but functional. I enjoyed the fact that the bathroom was equipped with a real bathtub (welcome after all those tiny showers in many of our other hotels during our trip!).

As other reviewers have noted, this hotel is well located in the centre of Urbino. We had no problem finding the hotel, though even just parking briefly to drop off luggage was impossible. The main car park outside the city walls is not far, and there is an elevator from the car park (not hotel run) up to street level (50c charge pp) so OK if you have a trolley bag. Car parking is discounted with a chitty from the hotel (€11 overnight). The hotel is clean and the rooms modern and adequately furnished, nice balcony with a view over the rooftops. The rooms lacked atmosphere in what is clearly an historic building, but they serve the purpose, as does the basic breakfast. Staff were friendly and helpful. I think the night we were there the students must have finished their exams as there was a fair amount of noise until the early hours (it was midweek), more noticeable as we had the window open because the AC was too noisy to keep running. Overall, I would say this hotel is adequate, good value and well located - just a shame it lacks the atmosphere to match the building and the city.

I stayed in Albergo Italia in Urbino for 5 nights. I had some contact by email about parking my car days before arrival. The reply was practically instant and very helpful. Also during my stay the staff was very friendly and spoke perfect English, for those of us who aren't fluent in Italian always good to know.

The breakfast buffet is abundant but please don't have the readymade coffee, ask the nice lady that is overseeing breakfast for a cappuccino; your stomach and tastebuds will be ever so grateful :)

The hotel is right in the middle of Urbino, across from the palazzo Ducale. The hotelbuilding itself is also historic, but very tastefully modernised. The room is small but everything you need is there, also in the bathroom. My room was at the back of the hotel, so there was hardly any noise at all during the night.

FYI:
Per device that you want to use wifi on you have to pay 1 euro/stay.
The parking garage below the busstation will cost you 11 euro's a day and you can get a card for entering and leaving if you pay the duration that you will use it up front. (There is also a 20 EUR guarantee for the card, that is given back upon returning the card.)

Eating out is easy, restaurants are everywhere, the quality is not everywhere the same.

Room Tip: A room at the back of the hotel will be quieter.

My wife and I stayed two nights at this hotel a couple of weeks ago. It was easy to find, had convenient parking (city lot very close by) and was but a short walk to the main piazza and the Palazzo Ducale.

The room was quite adequate...clean, comfortable and with windows overlooking tiled roofs and the mountains behind. The bath was fine, towels etc. well supplied and plenty of hot water for the small but manageable shower.

The breakfast bar was somewhat limited but really adequate. I guess the caffe was the weak point, no pun intended.

Would we stay there again...the answer is yes.

We stayed for only one night at the Albergo Italia in Urbino. It enjoys a nice location, not distant from the huge parking lots located at the entrance of the town. At the same time, it is very easy to get on foot to the main attractions in beautiful Urbino if you stay at the "Italia". We were given a very nice room, downstairs from the reception area, with several large windows facing beautiful tiled roofs of ancient houses and, beyond, a nice view of the countryside. As the hotel is built on a kind of cliff, some rooms are below the entrance level. The room was clean, large and had tight windows, so we were not bothered neither by the cold weather or outside noises. Towels were in sufficient numbers, and also hangers (a rarity in many hotels). Breakfast was very good (given the more than reasonable price/quality ratio). The personnel were kind and courteous. An ideal place to stay if you visit this part of Italy.

The location of the hotel is great (not too many streets to climb to get to it!), the staff were efficient, our room was comfortable if a bit crowded and the bathroom fine. Breakfast was excellent except for terrible Café Americano (ask for a double espresso instead). Our first night was great but our second night was a Tuesday. On Tuesdays in warm weather the bar across the road holds a rave which goes on until 2 am. Even with closed shutters and windows, sleep was impossible. We asked to be moved to another room and the staff were pleasant and willing. The new room was at the back, much quieter and had more pleasant views over the town. We had to pay 1 euro for wifi.

Room Tip: If you're going to be there on a Tuesday, ask for a room at the back.
