Reviewed October 30, 2012

Good price, great room, breakfast something else and amazing view. Second trip to Cortona and can't wait for the next time. October a great month, still warm but quiet. Cooking class at Ristorante Ambrosia highlight. Walking the Stations of the Cross close second. Gelati late evening out walking a new experience. Everyone so friendly.

Room Tip: First floor was good, lift. Very quiet

Our third stop in Italy and couldn't have been more pleased. Hotel has all the Italian charm we expected. A typical Italian breakfast every morning on the top floor over looking a beautiful view of the valley. You have to pinch yourself to make sure you are there. The staff is friendly and so helpful. They suggested eating at LaBucaccia and we were not disappointed. Reasonable prices and food like we have never tasted!!! The center of town is only a few feet away with the Piazza busy during the day and entertaining with people watching at night. Love the location, cost and the friendly staff. Rooms are not fancy but are clean and comfortable beds. View from our room was Amazing!! Would stay there again!

Hotel Italia is just steps away from the piazza in the center of town. We arrived by taxi and were given a very warm welcome. Our family room had a living room with two twin beds (not much other furniture though, and a bedroom with a large, comfortable bed. We shared a bathroom that was pretty small but very clean. The room was no frills but was perfect for my husband and me and our daughter. The breakfast (served on the 4th floor) didn't have a lot to choose from but the food they did serve was great and the view from our table overlooked the spendor of Tuscany. Came back to the hotel in the morning from our morning walk to a wonderful park and found checkout was 10:30 and it was 10:45! The desk clerk happily stored our luggage until we left to take the train to Montepulciano. Don't miss eating at La Bucaccia just down the hill from the hotel - it's superb. We would stay here again if we return to Cortona - the price was right and the hotel is very clean and the staff are extremely friendly and helpful.

The hotel has got such a charm about it, from the minute I opened the door. The hotel reception were the friendliest and most helpful that I've come accross in a long time. The rooms are fantastic and the breakfast room on the top floor was much better then you're average hotel breakfast with a spectacular view! I love Cortona, I'll definately go back and stay at the same hotel!

Stayed here with 2 girlfriends a few years ago. It's very central in the town within walking distance to all major restaurants bars and events. The town of cortona hosts lots of festivals with some amazing personalities hosting same such as Sofia Loren, Robert Redford, and sir Antony Hopkins to name but a few. It was the town featured in the movie/book under the Tuscan sun featuring Diane lane. A visit is a must!

I stayed at the Hotel Italia for a few days in September of 2011. The location of the hotel is great- just steps from the main street and within walking distance of everything in town. My single room was very small, but very clean. Having a/c was such a treat after long days exploring the town and its many hills. The staff was charming and I look forward to staying here on my next trip to Cortona!

Too often Tuscany these days is known for poor value and grudging service. Not at the Italia. We stayed four nights and were brilliantly looked after. Great advice on nearby restaurants, help with travel arrangements, great warmth and friendliness. Fabulous old Palazzo, great breakfast, ideal central location. OK, so the room was a bit dark and could use an armchair, but the Italia was our base for a memorable wedding and we will always remember it as "doing it's bit" to make everything as perfect as one could imagine. We'll be back.
