Le Gelosie Bed and Breakfast and Apartments
Ranked #25 of 43 Cortona B&B and Inns
Reviewed 12 August 2011

We found this accommodation on tripadvisor and were very happy with it. We are a young couple in our early thirties, without children, and travel around Italy every summer, taking in one hill-top town on the way each year. This year it was Cortona's turn and it is probably the town to which we would be most likely to return. Le Gelosie is the perfect choice if you want spotless and central accommodation without any intrusion from the owners. It has only four rooms so there is very little noise from other guests. There is some noise from the street outside but we did not find it excessive and it is part of life in a small town. We love Italian food and Andrea gave us some names of restaurants which were spot-on and which we might not have found by ourselves. The breakfast bar staff are friendly and the breakfast is simple but fresh. Andrea was only a phone call away if we needed anything and so we felt this accommodation struck the perfect balance between being looked after and feeling independent.

Room Tip: We stayed on the third floor and found the room lovely. It is small but perfectly formed. We were ve...

Last time we visited Cortona we stayed at the bottom of the hill in a villa so this time we decided to stay on the hill. Le Gelosie is a very nice hotel in the centre of Cortona - the guy that runs it is very friendly. It is located just off one of the main squares. Breakfast is at a cafe on the sqare which is a selection of pastries and coffee. Would definately recommend the hotel.

Our three days at Le Gelosie surpassed our expectations. It was a superb accommodation. Our room was well set up, warm, and lovely overall. Staff were very friendly, available, and helpful, giving us tips to travel around Tuscany and Italy in general. The bed was great, and we are very picky about where we sleep. Thumbs up all around!

Room Tip: We loved the top room-it was very quiet.

We've visited Cortona many times but never stayed in its center. We chose this b & b because it is just of Cortona's celebrated Piazza Republica. Our room was pristine, well air conditioned and quiet. Typical Italian breakfast is served at a bar just around the corner. The hosts, a young couple, are super helpful offer great advice. Highly recommended.

If like us you love the buzz of Cortona then this a great place to stay. The rooms are clean, with a modern Italian feel and the bed's are large and comfy which means you get a good night's sleep. The location is great as you are at the heart of Cortona and you can experience everything this town has to offer. Breakfast is provided at a cafe located 2 minutes down the street and is simple but adequate, usually comprising of a pastry, tea/coffee and fruit juice. The service is good both at the B&B and at the cafe with our hosts being very helpful and friendly. We asked to view their apartments on our last day, as had they been unoccupied earlier on our visit, Andreas would have let us stay in them for the remainder of our trip as they are ideal for longer visits. Again, they are nicely decorated and provide ample facilities for a longer stay. I am looking forward to staying in the apartments on our next visit.
I should mention that there is no parking within the town for visitors but the car parking is free and plentiful. We used the car park at the top of Via Dardano, outside the walls. There is a public outdoor swimming pool located at the other end of the park, along with a tennis club and football pitches. The facilities at the pool are great and it is very clean and friendly. Pick a hot day though for your visit as it is not heated.
The only minor problem being located in the centre of Cortona and with the rooms facing a main thoroughfare is that life starts early in the morning.....you may be woken a little too early. However, we still loved this B&B and we are planning to return soon.

We stayed in the larger apartment on one of the main squares in Cortona. The apartment was spacious and the kitchen well stocked with pans, dishes, etc. The 2 bedrooms on the 2nd level were small but adequate and the main bedroom on the top floor was great. There are lots of steps so take that into consideration. We stayed for a week and did not want to leave! Cortona is beautiful and there are several restaurants with reasonable prices. We had fun shopping in the market across the street for staples or around the corner for fresh fuits and veggies so we could cook for ourselves as well. Andrea was helpful. We will certainly return soon. There is no parking inside the city but you can bring your things in and then park the car.
