“Bak as soon as we can! Paradise!!”
Reviewed 31 July 2011

What a magical place...the rooms were small be very adequate...the view from our balcony was out of a romance novel! Breathtaking view of the valley, flocks of really "cute" birds...the beautiful cathedral on the hill side...oh my...just perfect! The service was excellent...very attentive and friendly throughout. the breakfast room was sunny, bright, the same beautiful view and the food was wonderful! Our entire stay of 6 days was wonderful. Did take a little getting used to that the floor our room was o n was 4 and it was down!! Added to the flavor! Highly recommended!!

The view from our room of the valley below was awesome. There are small birds in Cortona---I think Swifts---that fly overhead constantly making a nice sound. Looking out our balcony at this view with the birds flitting about was wonderful. The rooms are small but fine. The location of the hotel is perfect---walking distance to the main street. We visited all the hill towns but Cortona was my favorite.

This hotel is perfect; the managerial staff is so friendly and helpful.
I loved staying here - the breathtaking views, the cleanliness, the delicious breakfast, the convenience to town, all beneath a bella luna sky! Thank you for a wonderful stay in Cortona!

Great location where you can drop off and pick up in your car then park (huge perk). This hotel has great views from soom rooms and the eating area. Clean and basic with a friendly staff. The attached restaurant is operated by another organization and is considered very good. Would repeat.

Hotel San Luca
Let me start by saying the people in this hotel are really good, friendly, warm, helpful, great English. The location is spot on, the view from the rooms spectacular. The place is clean, bathroom new. But, there's a few buts...it's a bit tired. By that I mean it has little box TVs stuck up on the wall, no in-room explanation of anything, you have to pay for wi-fi ... Our double bed was two singles pushed together, try sleeping on that without falling into the gap. The breakfast buffet I call the random breakfast - things that get eaten don't get replaced...I only got eggs one day out of 3, seems one lady is trying to run the whole thing and it's all too much for her. Came for a wedding but no iron could be borrowed. 
Overall I'd say it's a good place ... if you expect a nice clean friendly place to stay and are happy with a simple environment, then it's good. The view/location is so spectacular this place is a developers dream spot waiting to be made over.

I would live here if I could - I stayed five nights and it was the perfect "home base" for travels around Tuscany. I fell in love with Cortona, and the San Luca made a wonderful haven at the end of busy travel days. It's the best location in town - steps away from the main street as well as the bus stop to the train station and other towns. Their balcony is the best view you'll find of Tuscany, and you can sit there all day if you want to without ordering any food. The staff makes you feel like family and helps with anything you need - train and bus schedules, restaurants, etc. All the rooms have nice views of either the garden or the hillsides, but be sure to request a view of the Tuscan landscape when you reserve your room - the garden is beautiful but there's nothing like waking up to see Tuscany at the beginning of every day!

If you rely heavily on Internet access it would be helpful to bring your own computer - the charge is minimal. They do have free, unlimited access to Internet in the business center but the computer is very old and slow. Nevertheless, it allowed me to keep up with work and an online class at no cost.
