B&B Sant'Angelo 42
Ranked #30 of 54 Orvieto B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 27 June 2014

Booked months ahead this B&B to one night family trip. B&B was clean and in good place, situated middle if lovely Orvieto.

But.. Price if suite was not what booking system said, we paid more, only cash was ok.. There was no beds to whole family. 8 year old had to sleep in baby cot.. Owner said that she try to contact me, but no emails or calls come from her on my mind.
She booked us in and then we never saw her again, another person took care of out breakfast and check out.

Very nice rooms and place, but service attitude could be better. It is not clients fault, if booking system sells room in certain price, which is not ok for owner..

We stayed at this location on a whim and were completely blown away. The entire building is extremely well cared for and has gorgeous rooms. Our balcony was very small but AMAZING and had really lovely views. We will definitely be returning and bringing family with us to fill the whole place up and enjoy together.

Two things to note:
If you plan to take a siesta close the balcony so when the school down the street lets out the kids don't bother your rest.

Breakfast isn't amazing, but offers toast/croissants which certainly are fresh. Coffee was too light for our liking.

Room Tip: We peeked in a few other vacant rooms and are pretty sure you can't go wrong.

We were met at the square before entering Orvieto by a lovely, intelligent young lady named Alessia who spoke excellent English. Apparently Guilia (lady who runs the B&B) had sent me a text message informing me that Alessia would meet us but we didn’t get it until we had access to w-fi so we were taken quite by surprise when Alessia poked her head in the car window and asked us whether “we were going to the B&B”. We told her we were going to Sant Angelo 42 and she then literally hopped in the car and informed us she was helping a family friend who ran the B&B and would direct us to the private parking and then walk with us to the B&B. How wonderful as I have absolutely no doubt that we would not have found the parking without her. The streets to the parking were extremely narrow and packed as it was a public holiday in Orvieto. My husband did a fabulous job maneuvering our rather large vehicle. Alessia’s mother (Nadia) greeted us at the B&B and assisted us (along with Alessia) to carry our bags up the stairs to our rooms. Nadia was lovely, just like her beautiful daughter. Both rooms were very nice but one was almost twice the size of the other so if you really want the bigger room you should ask for it. The beds were very comfortable and the B&B was very clean. A bit of maintenance work needs to take place but it is very minor – for example, the side tables in our friends’ room were wobbly. It has a lot of charm especially the kitchen area and entrance. The B&B is within a ZTL zone and Guilia assured us she would advise the authorities of our visit so we would not receive a heafty fine. The B&B is in an excellent position, right in the heart of Orvieto. Guilia met us the next morning (she was in Rome the day we arrived) with a very filling breakfast of eggs (cold and hard boiled), croissants, coffee, tea, fresh cake (delicious), yoghurt, juice, cereal and fruit before sending us on our way. We arrived at the private car park which was opposite Nadia’s own B&B. She invited us in to show us her B&B and it was lovely. I would be happy to stay at either B&B if we were to return to Orvieto in the future.

Room Tip: Of our two rooms, one room was bigger than the other. I suggest asking for the bigger room.

We were welcomed by Giuila, after a harrowing rail experience from Rome. It is a bit hard to find, but the good directions on the website were helpful. We arrived around 11am, our room wasn't ready, but we sat in the reception area for 10 minutes until the cleaning was completed. We were then allowed to have the room, which was very welcome. The b&b has a wonderful feel about it. Very recently refurbished and looks & feels very homely. We had the blue room overlooking the very narrow front street. No noise once the doors were shut, but there is a small balcony which allows you to view over the rooftops to the surrounding countryside. The room is of ample proportions with a large bathroom with shower. The shower was large with a rainhead, very nice after a days walking the amazing town itself. Breakfast was delightful also with plenty of options, including freshly cooked eggs. We have nothing but praise for the way Giuila ran the B&B.

Room Tip: Any of the rooms would be a delight to stay in. They all have some sort of view and look very comfor...

We initially booked B&B Michelangeli and were recommended here as the owner found herself double booked. The front desk is not constantly manned, so we had to inform our arrival time. Someone is usually there in the morning though. Francesca welcomed us and was a great help in giving recommended places to eat and where to get bus tickets to Civita di Bagnoregio.
The B&B is a fairly long walk from the funicular station, around 15 min with slight uphill, maybe 20 min with luggage. It is not as far as the Duomo. Good thing that it is actually walkable is because the bus from the funicular which takes you to places nearer the Duomo is always crowded and fills up fast. Seemed quite challenging to carry bags and squeeze in.
We had a double room which was quite spacious. The shower door leaks so once we bathe, the toilet floor is wet. Other than that, the place is quaint, typical of buildings in Orvieto with its underground cellar.

Room Tip: Generally the rooms seem to be quite spacious. We stayed in the one facing the street/alley and it i...

This B&B has shady pricing practices. We booked a few months ahead of our visit. We reserved the "Suite with One King and One Single Bed" for my family of three. 2 weeks before arrival, I emailed to confirm. The response back was that the listing was wrong and they don't have a King with Single room for price reserved. It took 4 days to get the reply, which gave me just 2 days left on the "free cancellation" period. We were told that to have the advertised room, it would be an additional 30 Euro, which we could have at a discount of 25 Euro. This bait & switch practice was not agreeable, so I found another hotel and cancelled. Now, a month later, the B&B stlll has exact same room description. Be prepared for a bait & switch at this B&B.

We arrived on Easter weekend in the rain after a long drive, and encountered some communication issues with finding the hotel and a time when the hostess was available after our original timetable slipped by a couple of hours. Giulia was very nice, but other than the eventual check-in and breakfast, she was nowhere to be found. The B&B itself has a very grand feel with plenty of interesting art and decor. The rooms were clean, but we did find it challenging to keep all of the water inside the shower. There was a nice view from the balcony. The city and the fascinating well museum each were only a short walk away. I will give the service issues the benefit of the doubt under the circumstances, but this was still only a good-but-not-great B&B experience.
