This charming hotel is perfectly located to visit Cortona by foot. The atmosphere is wonderful as the staff makes you feel at home. The rooms are very cosy and well equipped. If the staff and rooms are excellent, the breakfast is even better! This place really worth it! I'll recommend it 300%

We loved our 4 nights at Villa Marsili. The front desk staff was exceptional at our daily trip/walk planning. Buffet breakfast over the top and lovely little appetizers at happy hour too. A few minor drawbacks. The hotel sits at the corner of a main road into Cortona and a road that goes around Cortona which makes for a rather...

Cortona is a very pretty city and this hotel is a lovely place to stay. The hotel is lovely, with a wonderful breakfast. The rooms are very comfortable. The staff is very nice and very helpful. The hotel is withing the historic centre. However, one still needs to walk uphill to get to the old centre.

Hotel Villa Marsili, located some 3 minutes walking from the main square of Cortona, was an exceptional experience for me and my wife during our trip in Tuscany. Immediately after our late arrival we were offered a welcome drink and because the hotel was not fully booked up our room was upgraded to a higher standard. The room was big...

We have come back to this beautiful little hotel in Cortona many times as each time our stay here is simply perfect. We use this hotel as a convenient place from which to explore the countryside and the many small villages in Tuscany. The hotel is impeccably decorated with unique and striking furniture pieces, beautiful fabrics and lush carpets. Staying...

Friendly staff and excellent accomodation in town in Cortona. Cortona is blessedly free of big name hotels. We thoroughly enjoyed staying at the beautiful Villa Marsili, just a short walk from the center of town (Piazza Republica). We happened to stay during a road rallye of antique cars doing a hill climb. The dated BMWs, Ferraris, and assorted other race...

Great location with easy walking distance to the "hub" of Cortona. The staff were friendly, courteous and always smiling. Breakfast was included and had something for everyone. Wonderful assortment of pastries, fruit, tomatoes, cheeses and meats as well as warm options. Happy hour was always packed and after a long day of sightseeing provided a nice light supper coupled with...

A delightful, clean, well-maintained, well-appointed hotel. The staff is helpful and cheery. They've taken care of all the details, both large and small, from little room gifts, car valet service, sanitary sleeves on phone and remote control to boxed meals when we had to check out before breakfast time. Also, very helpful advice re good restaurants and sites of interest....

This is my second stay here. Beautiful hotel located at the bottom of Cortona. Short walk to town. Nice room, excellent service. I'd definitely stay here again especially because it's an easy access with a car and easy for transporting luggage to and from.
