My sister and I stayed in Cortona at this wonderful hotel for 3 nights and 4 days. It was the best accomodations we experienced during our 2 weeks sejour in Italy and Tuscany. We were greeted by a friendly lady who gave us all the tourist information we needed, including recommendations on restaurants, which were fantastic!
Our room was the perfect size and the view of the town below (Camucia) was spectacular. The hotel is an old Villa (renovated of course) situated in the town of Cortona, which was built on a hill, so you can imagine what we could see. The room was lovely, clean, complete with bath and shower and bath products, which I love hehe.
Every evening at 7pm until 8 (or a bit later, they are relaxed) aperitifs are spread out on a lovely table in the middle of the main room (juices, cheeses, meats, and cute lil canopes). The staff is dutiful in reminding you of this. They really want your stay to be as pleasant as it can possibly be. I cant get over how down to earth, attentive and friendly they were. You werent just a guest, you were like family. This is so rare these days!
They have a Facebook page if you are interested, under the name of the hotel. It was cool to meet the person who writes the posts and responds to comments. Nicola, I believe. He is so sweet and cute! I write a lot on Facebook and was really pleased to see that they knew who I was after I posted a comment about the hotel during my stay. They thanked me for my comments and the manager personally came to say goodbye to us when we left the hotel. I cant even believe it! I miss them and the hotel.
Ooh I almost forgot about the breakfast each morning. You can find a variety of juices, croissants and pasteries, cheeses, meats, cereal, fruit, etc in a large spread in the dining area. You are always immediately greeted by a server who will offer you coffee, tea or cappucino. The caps are fab btw.
Lastly, the hotel is just down the hill from the main square and the shopping, sights, etc are all nearby :)
La Boccacia (sp?) is a highly recommended restaurant, I suggest you ask about it!
So all in all, I recommend this hotel with a 10 star rating!!
