We booked 4 nights at Hotel Italia for our honeymoon after family members had raved about Cortona. The location is great, just off of Piazza Republicca (about a 30 second walk). Our room was nice, with high ceilings and a huge bathroom (almost the same size as the room itself). We had large windows that opened up onto Via Ghibellina.
Breakfast was basic (coffee, juice, ham, cheese, bread, yogurt, etc) but the view from the breakfast room was incredible. We did not try the wine bar in the evening just because it was a little pricey and the room was dreary (who wants to sit inside when you can sit on the piazza and people watch). The service was friendly and they had no problems arranging for a taxi to take us to the train station when we left.
I would highly recommend Hotel Italia.
Tip: Before arriving, contact the hotel to arrange a taxi to meet you at the train station. Due to flight delays, our train did not arrive until 7:30 PM and there was NO ONE at the train station. Luckily, a German couple took pity on us and offered us a ride to the walls of the old town which was a far as they could go. We still had a long, very steep walk to the hotel.
