As other reviewers have commented, the hotel can be a bit hard to find. However, our GPS (Magellen) took us right to it. The problem really is that the signage is not easy to spot as you are driving by it. I suspect that this is due to local restrictions and there is not much the hotel can do to make it easier to spot. Having been forewarned by reading Trip Advisor, I pulled over as we were approaching where GPS said the hotel was located in a convenient spot where local buses stop and sent one of our party ahead by foot. He returned in a couple of minutes with specific instructions on how where to stop about a block ahead. The system is to pull over and stop in the road while unloading. The staff then takes your car to their garage for you and delivers it as needed. A well practiced system that they pulled off in very impressive fashion. The interior architecture of the hotel is really beautiful and well maintained. Our room was a good size and the bathroom more than adequate but not sumptuous. We found the breakfast to be very good and the service for coffee, cappuccino, etc. to be fast and friendly. The front desk staff was helpful with restaurant recommendations and walking and driving directions. I'm not sure if others have noted this, but shopping here is very good and prices are reasonable.

Tough to get to - most GPS databases do not know of one-way streets and pedestrian areas - but once you're there, it's simply perfect. It's right around the block from Piazza del Populo, the building itself is fascinating, rooms are very clean, all services were good. Breakfast could be improved, everything else is spot on.

Having spent a long day traveling from Florida, we finally arrived at Palazzo dei Mercanti on a rainy evening. What a welcomed suprise. This former monastery for nuns had been transformed into a very chic and comfortable hotel in the middle of the astounding old city of Ascoli Piceno, Italy. Not only was the whole hotel beautifully done, it had a very helpful receptionist, AND had a wonderful restaurant next door for that evening along with a perfert restaurant suggestion for the next day. All of this with reasonable prices. The picturesque Piazza del Popolo is just minutes away. This is a charming, nontouristy area of Italy.
I can only dream that I'll return.

Hotel Palazzo dei Mercanti is a wonderful experience! Marvellous renovation of an old convent. Excellent hotel in the center of a beautiful Ascoli Piceno, a discovery. Very friendly and warm welcome! Rooms VERY clean and everything you need is there. Wonderful breakfast. Good tips for exploring the surroundings and restaurants in the neighborhood. Warmly recommended! Make reservation for a parking place in advance.

The place is perfect. In a quaint old building but beautifully renovated using very high quality modern amenities that have a classic feel and blend beautifully with the old-world charm. The place absolutely sparkled and is in pristine condition. The spa was an incredible playground, we had it all to ourselves and it seemed brand-new and untouched by others. Very high quality materials went into building it. We had a standard room and it was fairly small but not atypical of europe and not uncomfortable. The place is definitely hard to find even with a GPS but its location is perfect in a charming town. Service was impeccable, breakfast very pleasant as well. We tried to extend our stay but the hotel was full and so we spent out last night at the nearby Albergo Piceno, which was also nice but not as beautiful as this property. If your choice is between the two, go with this one.
