We revisited the lovely Palazzo Seneca soon after it reopened. The room, service, warm welcome and beautiful ambiance were as perfect as we had experienced in our prior visits. This time, the restaurant had not yet reopened fully so the dining options were somewhat limited. Yet we were served some of the most delicious dished that I've had in Italy....

Thank you so much to all at Palazzo Seneca in Norcia! Norcia is such a beautiful town that was damaged by an earthquake in October 2016. Palazzo Seneca thankfully escaped. My wife and I were the first guests after they reopened and we were looked after amazingly well. The town being rebuilt and the surrounding hills were so beautiful. The...

Guys, the magnficent Palazzo Seneca hotel re-opened three days ago, and I had the joy of being among the very first visitors to make a booking. I and two friends were able to stay over night in Norcia and greet old friends among the staff I feared I would never see again. Their restaurant is set to re-open at the...

I didn't review the hotel originally because we were only there one night. Our trip was interrupted by a 6.6 earthquake on October 30, 2016... but I realized that it may be helpful to mention the service on our one night, go through the experience, and write about how the hotel staff reacted in such an emergency situation. Four friends...

I can't review the hotel as we didn't stay here. There was a huge earthquake on the 31st October. Which is why it closed after contacting guests to cancel bookings. I'm very surprised at the comment from the previous reviewer - did you not realise that Norcia was at the epicentre of the worst earthquake in 36 years? We were...

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...
