“Picture Perfect Room with a View”
Reviewed October 5, 2013

We love Orvieto wine, and were looking for a quintessential hill town to visit. Orvieto was perfect for a two night stay and B&B La Soffita was the perfect place to stay. Wonderful accommodations overlooking the Piazza Del Popolo in Orvieto. The most welcoming innkeeper met in our travels! Maria is truly concerned for your well being! Spotlessly clean, and the ability to make coffee or tea in the room was excellent. Our room under the ancient wooden beams was spacious, the bathroom was spotless and the bed was heavenly. Our fourth floor room looked out over the Plazza del Popolo - completely out of a movie set!

We stayed two nights - time enough to visit the amazing Duomo, do a bit of walking/shopping (lots of cobblestone streets and delightful shops) and visit nearby Montepulciano for wine tasting. A delightful place to spend time exploring this hill town and environs in outstanding company.

Of note: The rooms are at the top of the building - tough climb if you're traveling with lots of luggage up the four flights of stairs! Parking in the Piazza was free overnight but required payment for the blue lined parking spaces. It's always excellent if you can score a white outlined, free parking spot!

Room Tip: The room adjacent to the breakfast room stairs was reputed to have the best wifi reception.

Speaking a little Italian can be dangerous thing but with Maria, in the beautiful city of Orvieto, all's well that ends well. I phoned Maria, as she requested, when we arrived in Orvieto. I tried to tell her that we were at the bottom of the funiculare but she thought we were at the top. A few phone calls later and a rather slow ascent we finally emerged, Maria greeting us with a happy and understanding smile, all the frustrations forgotten. In my broken Italian and her broken English we chatted all the way in her car to here lovely B@B, an old building in the Piazza di Popolo. The renovated rooms are very nice, comfortable and nicely appointed. The location is convenient to all the major attractions. And, of course, Maria is just simply a wonderful innkeeper. A great experience.

Room Tip: We thought the interior rooms were better, and quieter

This B&B was the highlight of our trip to Italy. Lovely Maria and her daughter were so genuinely helpful and kind to us. We appreciated their hospitality and the B&B room was delightful. Their breakfast in the morning was wonderful! We fell in love with the city of Orvieto and most definitely want to come back stay here again .

stayed here as part of a photography course and it's in prime location and the lady who runs it is delightful. We came and went as we pleased and even got a brilliant view of the folk festival in the Piazza below. Would definitely recommend!

We loved B&B La Soffitta! The very sweet innkeeper who greeted us was so kind and helpful and the room was divine. It was really an apartment (with kitchen, separate bedroom/living area and gorgeous newly remodeled bath). This place was an oasis right in the heart of Orvieto. We only wished we could have stayed longer!

I had the immense pleasure to stay at La Soffita october 5 and 6, while I attended the Orvieto con gusto festival. Beatrice (daughter) and Mrs Silvana were incredible hosts. Travelling alone, I felt very secure in this environment, well decorated, quiet, warm and tasteful. The room was spacious, with all the modern fittings. Breakfast was generous and fresh. What a great surprise to find the weekly market at the door step on saturday morning! An incredible experience. Thank you for you honesty! I had booked via net, and most probably booked for 2 by error. Mrs Silvana corrected the price and ajusted it to single occupancy. Orvieto is a very interesting city to visit and discover. The Orvieto con gusto festival is a life time experience. I hope to relive every moment of my stay in Orvieto .Grazie mille per tutto! I hope to return soon!!
