My wife and I stayed here as part of a Page & Moy holiday touring Central Italy. After the rigours of our first hotel (it was OK but in need of lots of TLC) it was a joy to arrive here and be allocated a Junior Suite on the 4th floor overlooking a sports ground and distant hills. No balcony though as other of our guests had but that didnt matter at all. The bed was huge and comfortable, the decorations modern and sophisticated, the bathroom great with a power shower and plenty of toiletries to indulge you. The only downside perhaps was the large modern TV had no BBC Channels and but one English speaking news channel the ghastly US Fox News which reveals why America is so unloved outside the USA !! We had been looking forward to eating in the restaurant which had apparently received rave reviews in the past ('popular with locals etc'). But I was disappointed. We had one included meal (Friday) outside in the pleasant garden but there were only two choices for each course, the service was slow, the meat was a bit dry and nothing was piping hot. But the sweet was delicious - fresh fruit and ice cream. The second night we were out in Arezzo for an amazing medieval jousting tournament, and the third (Sunday) night the chef has off so we had to make do with a basic meal, OK in itself, but not what one would call four star, costing 30 Euros. The ambience of the modern hotel is very good. Yes, stay here for touring but for exploring San Sepulcro it is a good traipse of 20 minutes into town which ONLY HAS TWO TAXIS and they are often on holiday (!!!!) so you have to rely on a very unreliable bus service to get you to and fro or use shanks pony. There is a supermarket nearby but nowhere to buy stamps for overseas postcards -65c for Europe 85c for USA . Would we stay here again. Yes but at midweek when the Chef is in situ to try out his cooking for real and not second hand. The staff were OK and the rooms kept spotless whilst the glass outside lift was fun ! It lives up to its 4 star rating - just. But they need to get a BBC TV service to please us Brits...
