Reviewed 7 June 2014

We recently stayed at Hotel Italia in Cortona and had such a fabulous experience. The staff was very accommodating and so friendly. They spoke great english which was super helpful and they made our stay so nice.

The breakfast they have was one of our favorites! The view is to die for and they graciously served us cappucinos with a healthy selection of meats, cheeses, bread, and fruit. We ended up upgrading to a suite that has ample room for us and the view was incredibly romantic.

We highly recommend this hotel and their staff. Made our trip very, very special.

Prime spot in Cortona. Comfy bed make for a great nights sleep. Breakfast lovely, especially the pastries. View from the breakfast room the best! Staff very helpful. A good choice for a stay in Cortona.

Spent two nights here and loved it. Cortona is a really lovely place and well worth spending time exploring. We had a room on the third floor with the most amazing views of the Tuscan countryside. The building Is very old and full of interesting features.

The room was full of charm and period features - wooden beams, shutters, furniture etc.

The young guy who works there was very very helpful and attentive. He gave us lots of info and clearly cared for his customers.

You have to park outside of the city walls in a public carpark (free) so if you have large or heavy luggage be warned.... The hill up to the main square (the hotel is just off the square) is very steep and fairly long. You can drive up in a loop to drop off your luggage but remember to give the hotel your license plate number so you don't get charged for driving into the town.

Breakfast is served on the 4th floor with great views. Items can run low so best get there early (8am).

We were lucky enough to get a room with amazing views over the rooftiles and countryside, and the view from our bathroom was of the church bells. Lovely.

Plenty of restaurants and shops nearby.

Good value for money hotel - I'd happily stay here again

This is an excellent centrally located hotel with wonderful staff who did everything they could to make us feel welcome. Our room was on the third floor and was spotlessly clean. We had an amazing view over the countryside from our bedroom and over rooftops and bell towers from our bathroom. The bed was so comfortable and the room so quiet that it was an effort to actually wake up and get to breakfast on time. The breakfast room was on the fourth floor again with a wonderful view. We were offered freshly made coffee as soon as we arrived each morning and a delicious breakfast which included ham and cheeses, pastries, yoghurts, cereals and fresh fruit.
We hope to return to Cortona again soon and will definitely be staying at the Hotel Italia once more.

Centrally located in the heart of Cortona this lovely establishment is highly recommended. I stayed for 1 week while visiting my daughter in Cortona. The room was impeccably clean and the beds were very comfy. A lovely breakfast available on the fourth floor every morning accompanied by an incredible view. Exceptional staff, always greeted you whether coming or going. Wonderful place to stay.

We stayed in Cortona for one night during our trip to Italy. Cortona was a very sweet little town to visit and we were so glad we made the stop there.

The hotel staff were so friendly and helpful and went the extra mile as it was a special occasion for us. The room was lovely although not one with a view. The hotel was so clean and the décor was lovely. Amazing shower in the bathroom and nice breakfast.

Words cannot express how amazing this hotel is! My boyfriend and I stayed over Christmas. Prior to booking I was a little disappointed because we had to stay in a hotel and not a bed and breakfast. There was a fear that we would not have a personal experience since it was a hotel. Boy was I wrong!

Hotel Italia's staff was incredibly nice and accommodating. We arrived as visitors and left as family! They were happy to arrange a taxi from the train station to the hotel. And also offered to put any purchases that needed refrigeration in the main fridge. We were always greeted with a "Ciao" and a smile. Beds and rooms were VERY clean and VERY comfortable. The breakfast in the morning was a traditional Italian breakfast of ham, cheese, fresh fruit and pastries. Coffees are made to order. We felt right at home at Hotel Italia. Make sure to spend the extra few bucks for a room with a view. We did and it was worth it. The hotel is located within steps of the main piazza.

Cortona is a beautiful town. Again, prior to leaving for our Italy vacation I was concerned that we should have left more time for Florence but once in Cortona I knew we had made the right decision. Florence is a bustling city and Cortona is exactly how you would (as an American) imagine Italy slow paced and beautiful. Most folks speak broken English and if not, are happy to work with you. If you need a place to get away and just slow down and "be Italian" Cortona is it and the Hotel Italia is the place to be!! Do yourself the favor and book here! You won't regret it!

Room Tip: Again, go for the room with a view. Its only like a total of 20 us dollars more (give or take) and i...
