We have been to Cortona more times than I can count but always from a house we rent in a nearby village, so we had never stayed in the town itself. This was a short autumn trip and we stayed in town for four nights. I think it will become a regular fixture! Our suite was one of the nicest...

We arrived here for our anniversary trip on the 20th of October. Welcome was very friendly and they parked our car for us for €20 a day which was invaluable as there is limited parking inCortona and a huge hill to walk up to reach the hotel. We were shown to our room on the third floor. Very spacious and...

We have returned from a few days in Cortona where we stayed at the hotel San Michele. We booked this hotel on the premise that it was the best hotel in Cortona, as the price suggested, but in truth there a quite a few niggles that makes this really not the best hotel. Staff - Very friendly, could not fault...

Our GPS got us lost trying to find the hotel upon our arrival...we called the hotel and an employee walked several blocks and drove us to the hotel...customer service...you bet. The desk clerk, the bellman and the house cleaner were sincere and dedicated to make our stay memorable...the room was fine and the bed was awesome.

We booked this hotel because of its great location in Cortona and because we could park the car there. The car parking was a great help if a bit expensive at 20 euros per day but I guess they don't have any competition and can charge what they want. Our room on the 2nd floor was a reasonable size, well...

We chose to stay within the city walls this time around and it was a good decision. The hotel is located close enough to the main piazza to not miss anything but far enough to be a quiet environment. Numerous restaurants and shops just a stroll away to enjoy and explore. The rooms are spacious and beautifully furnished. The staff...

This is truly a perfect position for staying in Cortona. We had a lovely welcome and a very helpful porter. Our room was classic Tuscan style. Breakfast was good and could be eaten in the courtyard if desired. Our check out (young man, more interested in his phone- couldn't even bring himself to respond to my 'arrividerci) wasn't as friendly...

Hotel in the center of the old city. It is possible to walk to the old town of Cortona from the hotel, very convenient position. The staff is very nice and ready to help with any need. Great place to visit Cortona

We did not stay here but ended up being stranded in Cortona without a bus or taxi in sight. The excellent concierge who spoke superb English found us a taxi when most were booked up due to a wedding, and very comfortably rested in lounge until taxi arrived - very grateful ++
