We had booked a large double room and got one looking out to the Duomo, a breathtaking view. We were later told that the workmen who built the Duomo had actually been accomodated in what later became the Hotel Virgilio. Rooms very clean, receptionist friendly and a very good buffet breakfast, including eggs, ham and salami and different cakes. Only... More

Our group of 5 adults stayed at this well appointed Hotel, we were delighted with the atmosphere, cleanness and service. The breakfast selection was among the best I have seen. The inclusion of a toaster is often a welcome sight for those guests craving a piece of toast. I have no hesitation in recommending this hotel to anyone visiting Orvieto.... More

Hotel Virgilio is a modern looking hotel in the center of the beautiful city of Orvieto There was a lovely breakfast with fresh Italian cakes included. Every morning I awoke to the baking of croissants and the smell was irresistible. My room contained 2 single beds and was a nice size for 2 people. I peaked into other rooms which... More

Very nice location right on the duomo square. (About a 20 minute walk from the top of the funicular, if you are coming by train.) Very friendly and helpful staff. The room was, however, quite small, even for Italy.

Perfecto location. It's not the bedding or accommodation so don't expect too much. Love the location and Duomo view. Email the hotel direct for best rates. Ask for a driver to pick you up at the airport.

Clean, modern and standard rooms which are somewhat larger than normal. Fully manned desk. We wanted to get in early so we took a rear room. The front rooms look out at the square and cathedral. I would ask for these. The hotel is 100 yards from where the funicular shuttle bus (Bus A) stops so extremely convenient if arriving... More

I will preface this review by saying, we take full responsibility for the room booking. We booked economy. When seeing the room it was very tiny for two adults. We couldn't walk by each other without the other getting out of the way. Tried to upgrade, but superiors were sold out. The female receptionist was very nice and offered to... More

Thank you for your review. the council the next time to stay away from the Hotel Virgilio.

This is a tiny (only 13 rooms altogether) hotel, right on the main square, looking straight at the cathedral. It has recently been remodeled, and it makes great use of every inch of space. In what would normally just be the lobby, they have also included a tiny bar area, an elevator, and winding stairs. The rooms are well-laid out... More

If you are in Orvieto to see the old town, you could not find a better location. 50-100m from the cathedral, with restaurants and other must-sees in walking distance. At least in the very end of June, it was easy to find parking just opposite the duomo, if not you could park downhill and take the furnicular and a shuttle... More
