“A real palace on the way ”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 20, 2013 via mobile

We stay one night in this hotel on the way to Spello, not far away from there. Its a real palace with huge modern rooms well equipped. The breakfast is typical to italian hotels, not more. A very good swimming pool. The staff needs a bit of energy...But a good place to stay.

Stayed September 2013

Stayed here for one night on a recent road trip through Italy. First impressions were good with a lovely tree lined drive up to the main building. The Hotel is situated in large, well maintained grounds. So far so good. However the reception and bar area are bland and boring. Our bedroom though was modern and well appointed so no problems there. The restaurant was away from the main building in what appeared to be some barn like structure and on first impressions seem to share the same blandness as the public areas of the main building. However once seated it started to grow on us. Now for the good bit. We enjoyed one of the best meals of our whole trip here. We were served excellent food by a very attentive young lady who made the whole dining experience memorable even recommending some very reasonably priced local wine. Unfortunately breakfast does not get the same praise. In fact I would go so far as to say it was the worse breakfast we had. It had cereal and umpteen variety's of cake and buns. When we asked for eggs the answer was "we don't serve them". Also the one member of staff who occasionally appeared was totally disinterested as to the satisfaction of the guests. So in summary If it is just a stop over and you're not fussed about taking breakfast then I would recommend it but come on Delfina Palace you're letting yourself down by fuelling negative comments.

My husband and I stayed here for 2 nights in Sept. and really enjoyed it. Our room had a huge balcony overlooking the gardens/courtyard/pool area. It was spacious with a very comfortable (and truly queen size) bed. The bathroom was top notch and there was a nice wardrobe. Coming from Rome, the size of the room & bathroom was a nice surprise. Breakfast (included) was fine with an assortment of yogurts, cereal, bread, cheese, meat, etc. We ate at the restaurant both nights and it was great. Good wine and food, very nice setting, and well-priced. We were using this as our base so it was convenient to eat at the hotel. We tried driving into Foligno for dinner once and ended up driving through the middle of town by accident, and gave up when we couldn't find any parking, etc.The pool is very nice and in a beautiful setting. It's plenty big enough. Overall, this hotel is a great value and I highly recommend it.

Room Tip: Get a room with a balcony facing the garden

OK, the building is new and nice, the rooms are large and clean, and the staff is very friendly. What we did not like is that the pool was described as 15mx25m, which was probably the size of the pool area but definitely not of the pool itself. There was no pool bar even though it had been advertised (in the Jetair brochure). The food was far below average, both breakfast and dinner (it looked and tasted like microwaved food). The bar in the reception area was never open, it probably only 'exists' to get four stars. This hotel lacks a vacation atmosphere and character. The gym was hard to find, and the equipment did not function properly. Finally, the hotel is located very close to a highway (very well hidden on the hotel pictures). Even though this hotel has great potential, we were somewhat disappointed. Personal comment: we only see older positive reviews on TripAdvisor and nothing recent or negative. I cannot help wondering why?

My husband and I spent 3 weeks traveling around Italy. During this entire time, we had use of a rental car which allowed us to visit many places and to stay at different B&B's and hotels. This hotel has the "wow" factor. It is situated on a huge property, beautifully landscaped with olive trees, fruit trees,and flowers and all this with the mountains in the background. It has an air of sophistication and class that one doesn't usually see in such a small town. We were truly amazed with the impressive grounds and large chic reception area.

Pros: Clean, Bright & modern rooms(although a bit austere looking), Nice sized hotel room with large bathroom, quick internet service, small fridge included, free and large parking area, nice breakfast area with sufficient choices, extremely helpful & courteous staff especially at the reception area, Great restaurant on their property(expensive for such a small area but comparable to prices in Venice & Rome) serves delicious food, and the best thing of all only a 20 minute car ride from amazing Assisi...

Cons: Shower stall door in room 330 did not close properly....reception offered to switch us to another room but we had already unpacked....door was promptly fixed the next day but still gaped open about 1/2 an inch. Smell of sewage was pretty strong in the mornings especially in the stairwell. Beds were not firm but unbearably hard....had to ask for 2 blankets which I had to fold in 4's each, to provide extra cushioning. Hotel's restaurant is on their property but not attached or accessible from within the hotel itself...you had to go outside & walk to another building to get to their restaurant which we thought was poor planning on their part.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a balcony!

I can't give high enough praise to this property. It was immaculate, Biggest room and shower/bathroom on my 4 week trip to UK/Europe. Room was cleaned to spotless standard each day. Pool was huge. Clients were mainly family groups with children so no loud music and noise at nights. Breakfast was the best provided during my stay in Italy. Receptionists were the best - they could all speak a little English and were so hospitable and helpful to me as i was travelling on my own and could not speak Italian. The receptionist managed to hire me a bike and each morning gave enough directions for me to get from a to b (had a very limited english road map). Alot of Belgiums were repeat clients as the place is so cheap and nice compared to alot of properties. Highly recommend it.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with an outside balcony (chairs outside of ground floor room).
