“Solid Choice, clean, quiet, convenient, nothing fancy.”
Reviewed September 27, 2010

Arrived in Orvieto without a reservation...having researched the trip advisor along with other travel resources..we happened upon Valentino's sign on the Corso...I said, hey, there it is...let's try it...it had decent reviews..
We stopped in, asked the owners if we could see a room...they showed us a 3rd floor, end room..High ceilings, large bathroom w/bidet, and a large shuttered window with a view of the gardens and trees across the street.
We were also pleased to have Wi-Fi @ no charge.
Quiet place, because it is just a block off of the Corso.
Close to everything.
Breakfast was buffet style..Yogurt, croissants, cereal, cheese, jam & most importantly, cappuccino! Not bad. Acceptable for 85 Euro's/night

My partner and I sayed here for 2 nights after reading other recommendations on Trip Advisor. It was in a great location, was spotlessly clean and had a lift! We had a little difficulty trying to find out where to get the bus back down to the finicular (and how often they run), but it was only a 10 minute walk downhill, so it really wasn't a problem after all. Would definitely stay there again. It's a beautiful town!

Hotel Valentino was the perfect hotel for our three night stay in Orvieto! The hotel is located just off the towns main street and is close to all of the major sites and not too far from the funicular railway down to the train station.
The staff were helpful and friendly. The breakfast was good with several choices of ceral, bread roles, pastry and cake. The coffee was made to order as you arrived at breadfast and was teriffic.
A great hotel at a great price!

We had booked this hotel in advance without realizing that the time of our visit coincided with the local festival. The hotel was just off the main thoroughfare, providing easy access to the festivities and the beautiful Duomo. The area around the hotel is interesting with many shops and small cafes.

We had 1 night in Orvieto and had not booked. We stumbled upon Hotel Valentino. What a find! Thestaff were so friendly and helpful. The room was clean and bright with airconditioning.. We paid 70 Euro which was great value.

The street on which the hotel is situate runs into the main thoroughfare -Via Cavour. It is a marvellous hotel and breakfast was included. I would highly recommend not only for value but for position and comfort.

Orvieto is a compact hillside town and anywhere you stay is a good location. We chose Valentino Hotel because it was an easy 15 minute walk from the top of the funicular and as it turned out, on a relatively quiet street away from the crowds and traffic. The rooms are simple, and yes, the shower is tiny, but the breakfast is ample and the staff is attentive but with very limited English. WIFI internet is available for 2 euro/hr.

My husband and I stayed in the Valentino for 1 night whilst touring in the area. I booked Hotel Valentino for its good location, just off one of the main shopping streets and close to the main attractions (approx 5-7 minutes walk from the Duomo) The rooms themselves are clean but functional and very plain - the photos on the web site are a good reflection of what to expect. The hotel suited our needs as we simply wanted a centrally located hotel, with garage, to use as a base for one night whilst we explored Orvieto. If these are your needs, I can recommend the hotel. However, if you are looking for a more traditional "Umbrian experience" then the Valentino is not for you. I should also add that the breakfast was very average but the communal areas were pleasant.

In short, it is ideal if you just want a clean centrally located base for a short stay. If you are looking for romance and charm, look elsewhere.

Regarding Orvieto itself, I can heartily recommend a visit. The Duomo and the Underground were highlights of our visit, but the town in general is great, with a relaxing atmosphere.
