Dolce Maria is in an excellent location, just off a main road that connects to one of Cortona's main piazzas. It is sign posted from two directions off of via Roma so you can find it on foot. This is especially helpful because Cortona is a walking town... cars generally park outside the walls, and when you first arrive it is easy to get turned around wandering the streets and vicolos.
Dolce Maria has six large, nicely renovated rooms and baths...beamed ceilings, nice decor and firm beds. Foe us, WiFi connection was an issue. Also be aware that there are many stairs to traverse including to the breakfast room.
And speaking of breakfast....simply outstanding with the almond breakfast pound cake, fig and apricot jams, and cornetti all made by the owner's mama. Do not plan an early exit before 08:30...this you do not want to miss.
Paola, the nice owner, speaks English and is helpful when making reservations. She also owns Ristorante Locanda al Pozzo Antico next door with good food.
