My husband and I stayed here in June 2016. We chose to stay one night in Norcia at the Palazzo Seneca to celebrate our 19th anniversary and the whole experience was so amazing that we decided to stay an extra day+night. From the location, the building, the architecture, the service, the room with a little balcony viewing the plains and...

It was excellent and the restaurant was INCREDIBLE, DELICIOUS and ARTISTIC. Everyone is so nice. The beds are very comfortable and pretty. The ubicación is fantastic- we would like to go back during the month in which the fields are all colorful. It is definitely a Very Special Place!

Hotel, palazzo Seneca is one of the classiest and beautiful places I have ever stayed. From the owners, the staff, the food and the beauty and extremely tasteful decor it was top notch. What a wonderful feeling to feel so well cared for and respected. A hidden jewel in Norcia , Italy .

This a truly beautifully restored 17th C. palazzo, the jewel in the crown of the family who seem to own most of the other hotels in the town. Considering they've been in the business for close to two hundred years it's no surprise they know what they're doing. The hotel is slap bang in the middle of town, just 50...

We stayed 1 night recently with another couple of friends at the wonderful Palazzo Seneca. The rooms were beautiful and the staff so friendly, accommodating and helpful. Only a week had passed since the earthquake at Amatrice but despite their own concerns the staff went out of their way to ensure we were comfortable and had an enjoyable stay. The...

We stayed 3 nights at Palazzo Seneca. Our rooms were upgraded to suites which were spacious and lovely. Really nice to have adjoining rooms with our sons. We thought that breakfast was really gorgeous- fresh orange juice, great coffee, great omelettes, huge range of pastries. We didn't eat in the restaurant but ate instead at the restaurant across the road...

Palazzo Seneca is a Relais & Chateaux property right in the middle of Norcia. Beautiful historical buildings and very attentive staff. They took our car to their guarded parking area. Also were prompt to try to correct an AC malfunction. It took repeated tries by their engineer and at one point they offered to move us to a suite. Important...
