Spoleto is a lovely old city full of cobbled narrow streets, old buildings, a huge fortress, interesting castles, and lots of palazzi. Palazzo Leti was rescued by its current owners from derelict status about ten years ago in a massive two-year renovation. It sits with a wonderful view out over the valley with the fortress to the right and one of the best churches out to the left. A better view it is hard to imagine, especially from the formal garden which looks just as good as the website photos. Our room was a standard one (ie, small) on the fourth floor which had views as from the garden. Do ask for a fourth floor room if you stay here as on the floor below the view disappears. The lights in the room were not good for bedtime reading. The bathroom had little room to move in. The hand basin was one of those huge white jobs Europeans seem to love but which take up far too much room in a small bathroom already cluttered with a bidet. Weight-challenged guests might find it hard to get in and out of the shower, without a close encounter with the toilet! Breakfast is included in the rates and was adequate without being exciting, and each day there was a tasty fresh cake or tart. Espresso coffee was good. The owners were helpful but one of them smoked outside and so there was often a smell of cigarette smoke drifting in which we did not like. Their restaurant recommendations were vey good. And clearly they carry some clout around town as one we tried to book into said they were full that night and when I said that is a pity as the owners of Palazzo Leti said we should come here, a table was immediately found!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The beautiful residence of the noble Leti family is located in the historic center of Spoleto. According to various sources, it seems that this was the first residence of the Leti family who arrived in Spoleto in 1500 but the family name became extinct at the beginning of the XIX century. due to a lack of male heirs. The Residence was built shortly after the medieval city walls were constructed (1292) using, in part, a pre existent Roman structure which you can still see walking along Via delle Felici. Recent restoration has revealed an important architectural, environmental and historic heritage not to mention a garden that has been restored in classic "Italian garden" style. From the garden one can admire the beautiful view of Monteluco and some of Spoleto's most important monuments including the Rocca Albornoziana, and St. Peter's Church. Rooms: The Historical Residence consists of 12 rooms, all of which are decorated with warm lightly coloured fabrics and organza. Each room, with its unique architecture, colour and decor is reminiscent of a noble room of the past. All rooms have a view of the sacred mountain of the Spoleto valley "Monteluco", which evokes the peace and the harmony of the hermits that once lived there. Facility: Soundproof, safe, mini bar, air conditioning, TV sat, internet access free. ... more less
