B&B La Casa di Tufo, run by a friendly and efficient proprietor, is tucked away on a quiet side street in Orvieto. We were able to find the street no problem, as it is only a few minutes walk from the Piazza della Reppublica. However, the B&B is not well marked, so keep an eye out for the street number - we walked right past it!
From the entry, you walk up the stairs to the second floor common room. We didn't spend time in this space so I cannot comment on it too much; however, I did notice lots of guidebooks and local information. It is furnished with modern IKEA-type items and is well kept.
Our room, Camera Stella, was on the third floor. This room is large for two guests by Italian standards. It had a large bed, sofa, small table with two chairs, and large mirrored wardrobe. Very quiet, with a nice window overlooking Orvieto rooftops. Again, all modern IKEA furnishings. The bathroom was very large and updated. The shower was interesting and had spa-type jets, an overhead light (burnt out), and a radio. Make sure the doors close tight, ours leaked a bit. There were only a few towels (no washcloths, but I do not think they are normally included) and they were not soft at all.
All in all, a simple and pleasant place to stay in Orvieto at a great value (75 Euro for two). The owner was very accommodating, provided GREAT dinner advice, and was flexible when we needed to depart early. She provided breakfast vouchers for a nearby bar, as we were up and gone before breakfast. The only downside was that the B&B was a bit of a hike from the Duomo and funicular for a one night stay.
