This is a small charming B&B (without the second "B" basically though!!) They have several rooms to rent and ours (2 best friends) was a room with two single beds, and a very nice, updated and modern bathroom. It looked to me that this room was specifically designed for two children (noticing the Disney-type comforter!). It was very clean, had a fabulous view over Cortona, was absolutely quiet and peaceful (we never slept better) and was perfect for our needs.
The B&B is run by a young woman, Sylvia, who could not have been more helpful and sweet. I believe it is her father who is also around and lives in a sectioned-off area of the B&B, while Sylvia and her grandmother seem to live downstairs and off to the side. Someone was usually available when needed, and we were kindly helped with directions we needed to a local shop. There is a communal kitchen for guest's use with coffee/tea making facilities, some crackers and munchies available, a frig for keeping whatever you like. There is a beautiful large deck/balcony right off the kitchen which would have been fabulous for use during the summer months. In November it was too cold for that.
We paid 60 Euros per night for the two of us, in cash and up front as was their request at the time of reservation.
The B&B is located at the beginning of a street that runs up to a square that marks the entrance to the main pedestrian street, and, therefore, very convenient for evening strolls, dinner, etc. Cortona is VERY steep and hilly and the entrance from the street down to this B&B entails many somewhat perilous and steep steps. Parking is available for free at the lower level of the town, and there is an amazing and convenient outdoor escalator that runs almost from the parking lot up to the level of the B&B. A few stairs gets you to the entrance. We dropped off our luggage, drove the short drive down to the lot, left our car and rode the escalator and a few steps back up to our room.
I would surely recommend for clean budget accomodations.
