“Great place to stay”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 October 2008

A friend and I stumbled (and I do mean stumbled) upon this lovely hotel when we decided last minute to jump on a train and visit Orvieto. This hotel is well located, on the hill, just a couple of blocks away from the Cathedral and was less expensive than we anticipated. Great find!!

  • Liked — Location, and price
  • Disliked — trash collectors at 7:00 a.m. (but not within the hotel's control)

This hotel was a lovely experience, we had planned on only one nights accomodation in Orvieto but ended up extending our visit to 3 days! The hotel has a great location with only a minute to the Cathedral and surronded by many restaurants, galleries and art studios. The staff at Hotel Posta were very friendly, helpful and spoke english well. There is a lift in the hotel, which proved a luxury after 3 weeks in Italy without lifts. Our room was clean & large, the bed was comforatable and the bathroom has been recently renovated, so suprisingly modern! The shower was excellent with good water pressure and lasting hot water. This was the cheapest hotel we stayed in during our enture holiday and in many ways it was one of the best! Hotel Posta is rated 2 stars, though we have also seen a 3 star hotel in Orvieto and chose to stay at Posta for the same rate. Car parking was free for our whole stay (just need to reset the parking clock every few hours) located 50 metres from the hotel it is public parking, but extremely safe and no problem finding a spot. We would definately revisit Orvieto and stay at Hotel Posta again. Great experience!

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 December 2007

The Hotel Posta is a simple 2-star hotel near the centre of Orvieto in a nice old building, handily located for the main attractions. It is excellent value for money - at €56 for a double with bath, this was our cheapest accommodation in our whole Italy trip, and it was far from the worst place we stayed.

The room wasn't huge, but had plenty of character with its old furniture and big bed. The bathroom was surprisingly spacious with decorated tiles. The lobby looks recently renovated and work was going on in the garden as well. The location is quiet but there was a little noise from the corridors and the plumbing.

Reception was friendly but the service was a bit lacking in some regards - they only take cash, room keys aren't well secured at the front desk, and it was one of the few places that insisted on keeping our passports overnight. Having said that, I would stay here again.
