There's nothing special about this place- no view, uninspired surroundings in the modern lower town of Orvieto Scalo, dated decor. But it's perfectly functional and convenient to the A1 motorway. There was an elevator and it worked, our room was normal-sized (for Italy) and even had a small flat-screen TV with BBC. The bath was fine - stall shower was slightly larger than the average. We heard the train go by once in the evening, but otherwise it was fairly quiet. The beds are extremely firm, even by Italian standards. Breakfast was actually more varied than expected, with a decent pastry/bread selection, cereal, yogurt, and some delicious fresh fruit. We checked in quite late but were able to eat dinner in their restaurant - again nothing special but a decent meal with pleasant service. Wouldn't recommend it if you're looking for the vacation of a lifetime, but it's fine for a stop-over if you're heading to or from Rome, and hilltop Orvieto is a gorgeous little town that's pleasantly off the (non-Italian) tourist beaten path.
