“HOW MUCH BETTER DOES IT GET?”
Reviewed 23 October 2010

I must heartily agree w/ all the superlatives that have been written about Villa Marsili! I can't imagine a more wonderful stay. Every aspect was superb. Please totally disregard the review from J'burg woman-if walking a FEW steps to center was too much to ask, there was an exterior escalator AND a bus stop across the street. I also know of no hotel anywhere that can control the terrain, the weather, or the ubiquitous sounds of motorbikes. When hotels offer special perks, NO ONE IS FORCED TO PARTICIPATE. The front staff, especially Iulia and Luana, could not have been kinder, more helpful, or friendlier, even under stress or time constraints. Utter professionalism!

This hotel was the BEST!!! We loved our well appointed room, with a view of the valley and lake. The bedding was very comfortable. Our room had everything that we needed, and we love staying in this hotel.
The staff is beyond excellent. We felt "at home" instantly, and we given wonderful service by all of the staff.
The location was ideal for us....and we enjoyed all of our time in lovely Cortona. The village is large enough to offer plenty to do...yet small enough to not feel lost.
The breakfasts were wonderful...with tons of choices...all fresh.
This hotel/ Villa loves to provide excellent service...and you feel it the moment you enter the doors!!!
We enjoyed our stay here very much and would put Villa Marsili on the top of any list when visiting Tuscany!!!

We couldn't have been more pleased with our stay. Besides a magnificent view over the Tuscan hills, there were several situations where we needed assistance and found the staff to be willing to jump right in. From a spill from the movable bathtub faucet which was cleaned up right away with no fuss, to an early morning departure with breakfast served well in advance of the advertised time, we felt welcomed and valued. Not only would I want to stay here again, but I might go out of my way to revisit Cortona because of this beautiful lodging.

Having been a Flight Attendant for nearly 20 years, you could say I'm an expert in travel. So when I say the service was excellent, you can believe me. It was the staff of the front desk went out of their way to make my friends arrival from Australia as welcoming and accomodating as possible after her 30 hour journey. For me, they indroduced me to other guests during happy hour to ensure I was enjoying myself while my friend crashed in the room with jet lag.

The hotel room was comfortable and well decorated with a modern bathroom with tub and separate shower. The only thing I wish the higher end hotels would provide is larger beds in twin rooms. I nearly fell off the bed one night. But these small beds are everywhere in Italy. The room had a minibar as well.

The breakfast the hotel provided was excellent. They also were very willing to provide you with eggs if you requested it. The selection of meets, local cheeses, fruit etc was always fresh and the selection great.

What made this hotel unique out of the 9 hotels I stayed in on this trip, was the happy hour before diner hour, apertifs late evening and the deication to service this hotel provides to their guests. The view from most of the rooms as well were just amazing. I would say if you are travelling to Italy, make Hotel Villa Marcili a must on your itinerary, and enjoy your stay "Under The Tuscan Sun". (the stars stayed here while filming the movie).

We loved this classy elegant gem of a hotel and its extremely kind and warm-hearted staff. We enjoyed the asthetics of the hotel -- from the painting ceilngs to the furnishings in the lobby and eating areas. The staff (from the bell boy to the morning breakfast staff to the front desk) are terrific and helpful. Contrary to dawnjohannesberg, we felt that the staff was in no way intrusvive...and were respectful of privacy at all times. We agree that there is a little bit of an uphill walk to town but it is not strenuous or inconvenient....we stayed for four nights and found it easy and routine. We also did not experience any noise problems. Our room was on the next to top floor facing the road with a wonderful view of the valley and, in the distance, the lake (near Perugia). The room includes a mini-fridge and safe. The shower and bathroom were nice and sufficient spacious. We were in Italy for 16 days and of all the places we stayed, felt that Marsilli had the most vaired and freshest breakfast (included in the rate). Everything was fresh and well made....and the wait staff friendly and attentive. This is a classy place with great ambience...and we felt well taken care of. When we return, we hope to stay here again!
