“Wonderful views of the Valley”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 August 2013

This is a really super hotel in an unbelievable location.
To locate it basically drive up to the town, when you get to a pedestrian area you are there. The
hotel is in front of you, to the left. There is a small parking area, so that you can unload. Parking is just below the Hotel(free).
Cortona is a great town to explore, if you have the energy walk to the top of the town to visit Santa Margarita, the interior is stunning, and the views from here are great. Otherwise the town is just great to walk around (and up).
Please try to ensure you get a room with a view of the valley, best way is to communicate direct with the hotel, you will then get what you want. We were on the fifth floor, with a balcony, it is a really super place to stay.
Our only regret was only staying for 2 days. Breakfast wasn't stunning(it was ok) but the view from breakfast terrace was.
Enjoy, Pete

Room Tip: Book direct with hotel, you will then improve your chances of getting a wonderful valley view.

Our room has a balcony with a lovely outlook over the surrounding countryside, yet we were close to the town centre and all that was happening . This is a quaint hotel with great staff and very convenient for walking excursions too. the food was good, both breakfasts and dinner.We have stayed here before and would do so again.

Room Tip: Get a room with a balcony.

Returned to San Luca for 6 Nights as married there 10 years ago and celebrated 10th anniversary. Location divine above the valley with views to Perugia and Montepulciano. Good base to visit from. Lobby nicely refurbished but rooms unchanged after all this time....desperate for upgrade. Bathrooms tiny!
Breakfast good. Anniversary dinner fabulous and lovely touch of complimentary Mille Fieulle dessert wonderful!!

Room Tip: Ask for rooms with view!!

We very much enjoyed our night here. We had a great view of the valley. Yes, the room was small, but no smaller than any other non-US chain hotel in our month in Italy. The front desk folks were very helpful.

The room was very clean. The matress on the bed was good, but not great.

The breakfast was a typical Italian continental breakfast.

We would certainly stay here again.

Fantastic location and views, but oh so outdated: service with an attitude, mediocre restaurants, tiny rooms and baths, no style, etc. etc. etc. What a shame; this hotel could be fabulous, but... retro '70's, who needs that?

Room Tip: #61, 4th floor overlooking valley was great view, but uncomfortably small.

First, let me say that we booked this hotel at the last minute and were only able to get a room on the bottom floor. Because the hotel spills down the hillside, our view was limited by a building in front a little lower down the hill. Our room was small and I expect that most of the others are as well. However, it was clean, the staff were very helpful with internet access and restaurant recommendations. The location was great and parking just a short walk away.

The breakfast was minimal. Although I don't see this as a 4 star hotel, we would probably stay here again if we return to Cortona, but I would definitely want a view room.

Room Tip: Book early to get a view room.

Stayed in may for a wedding. Get a room with a view overlooking valley, beautiful. Great position, breakfast was good. Food at the restaurant for wedding reception was superb.We were expecting small rooms in Europe, I found the rooms fine. Always get a beer from the bar, staff were great. Would stay again. Loved cortona and the people.
