Great hotel in the center of Cortona. Staff is very friendly and helpful. Room was big enough (website wrote 16m2 for superior but in fact it was much bigger). Bathroom and shower were neat and clean and breakfast was fine. They did not offer a choice for breakfast but later found out this was possible at no extra charge. Valet parking which is easy for €20 per day.

Charming hotel. We stayed a week in a lovely room on the third floor that had a small balcony, two bathrooms, lovely Tuscan decor and very comfortable. Breakfast was served at your table as the help yourself buffet is not allowed In the current regulations and it was very acceptable. Scrambled eggs particularly delicious and the best croissants, or should I say cornettos, we have ever had. Nicolo and his team were brilliant, very welcoming and could not have been more helpful, nothing was too much trouble and always done with cheer and a smile. They made our stay even more enjoyable. We would certainly return should we be in the area in the future.
