It may be a 3 star hotel but its amenities felt like more. Nothing tiered about this place; modern rooms not big but not cramped either, plenty of hot water in the shower and good selection at breakfast table. Beds confortable.The staff was helpful and friendly. Our only regret was not staying longer as Orvieto has a lot to offer...

We received a generous welcome from the proprietor and shown to a very tidy room that overlooked the piazza that expanded out in front of the very beautiful cathedral. This hotel is a great place to explore this town from. Our room was very pretty and comfortable. The air conditioner was excellent and there was plenty of hot water. Breakfast...

The two best things about Hotel Virgilio are the location, directly facing the duomo, and the staff who went out of their way to be helpful. They organised a taxi to meet me at the station as I was coming in later at night (this was a godsend), they also helped me find somewhere for dinner as it was so...

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...

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....

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...

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...

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...

Thank you for your review. the council the next time to stay away from the Hotel Virgilio. The customer should be informed about what book and if you want to save money, can not have the same comforts of who pays for and spends more. as I read its superficial review my eyes noticed the difference with the other previous...
