My wife and I spent 6 very pleasant nights at the Palazzo Leti. The owners and staff at this small hotel were all charming and helpful, whilst being totally unobtrusive. The hotel is centrally situated in Spoleto, so ideal for evening strolls around town or for getting back from a restaurant. As others have mentioned, getting in and out of the small parking area with a car can be an interesting experience but once again the staff are very helpful. The panoramic view from the terrace is wonderful and the hotel is set in a peaceful location, there being hardly any traffic noise.
My one issue is with Spoleto itself. The town resembles a construction site in parts, and with not a lot of evidence of builders getting on with the job. Clearly the historic nature of this city requires constant restoration and maintenance-but I wonder if anything is ever finished. Also take care if you are interested in visiting some of the churches in the area. Several are closed owing to lack of staff or for building works, and for one I had to make special arrangements through the tourist office
- 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
