Excellent location in the centre of Cortona. Room at the top with skylights was bright and spacious with large bathroom. Staff were friendly and courteous. Breakfast was good.

The room was just beautiful! Such a quaint and lovely room - we just loved it. Clean and very, very nice. We didn't want to drive into the Etruscan city so we parked outside and it was quite a hike up the street but well worth it. One way to work off dinner!! My husband says you have to be...

We stayed at the San Michelle for one night to recover from our journey from London on our way to Monte San Savino the following morning. Lovely hotel - we had ordered a taxi to collect us from the station but it wasn't there. However a quick phone call, in English, and they sent one straightaway. The hotel is right...

This was our third visit to Cortona, but the first time we stayed in town (two nights). At the top of the steep Via Guelfa, it has such an elegant ambience. The public rooms are lovely, and our room was charming with its canopied bed. Breakfast buffet was ample and varied. You step out the door, walk a dozen steps...

We stayed at the Hotel San Michele for 3 nights in October 2011. Considering its location; only 50 yards from the main piaza and the quality of the rooms I thought it was excellent value. The rooms are large by Italian standards and because the hotel is old it had an fantastic atmosphere. All the hotel staff where extremely helpfull...

My wife and I and other friends stayed here for 3 nights in August. We thought it was good value and it's very centrally located just off the main square in the old hill town of Cortona. The room was large and well appointed, with a large bathroom. The breakfast was adequate - not amazing. The staff were all very...

So where would you want to stay in a city older than the USA ? This converted palazzo has a friendly staff, a location that means you almost avoid the necessity - as in most Tuscan hilltop towns - to walk uphill, quiet spacious rooms and a staff that speak English - so the breakfast is mediocre - it's an...
