Very helpful staff, large room with comfy bed and fair sized bathroom. Beautiful view from the window. the evening meal was expensive and poor. It was the end of the season so it would appear that they were not expecting many guests but my sirloin steak was chewy and tough. In fairness the cook did try to give me something else to compensate. I couldn't understand her and she didn't speak English but she seemed genuinely upset that I had not been satisfied.
As previous comments have said the room was noisy but if you are looking for a hotel close but not in Orvieto and you have a car it is good for one night.
Good situation, near to Orvieto, large rooms, plenty of space in bathroom. Staff helpful. Big car park. Hotel used to be a seminary and is still used for regular conferences of local priests. When they descend on the place, the paying guests have to fight for parking space! This happened on two of the four nights we stayed. Hotel has a restaurant, but this was closed in mid October.
This hotel was very reasonably priced for the accommodations, it just happened to be in a rundown area of town.
The rooms were spacious. Hotel staff were very helpful and friendly. The restaurant was closed when we were there, and we didn't have a vehicle. The rooms were noisy.
Very pleasant room at a low price. The public areas were very spacious with extensive use of marble. It's quite a long walk, uphill, to Orvieto. There is a bus, but it does not run often. But if you have a car, the location is no problem. When we were there, in October, the restaurant and bar were not open but one evening they made us dinner anyway..
Very comfortable and very inexpensive Directions to the hotel were a bit obscure
very good hotel, in fact I am booking it for a large party next summer the walls of the rooms are extremely thin and you can hear everything! Because of the time of year, later September there were not many in the hotel consequently, there was no restaurant
Breakfast Very difficult to find. The directions are poor.
Staff was friendly and accommodating. Ants and beetles in our room. The restaurant was closed both evenings.
Big rooms, big bathrooms; very clean; very quiet (6 cars and 2 pedestrians passed by in between 21h and 23h; there's a fridge in the room. It is a bit up a hilly street, so 100m going up with suitcases. Not a problem for us tough.
Extremely friendly staff, a modern and immaculately clean room with spacious bathroom in a beautiful, quiet setting with the additional extra of a balcony. Very conveniently located - the funicular railway is a 2-minute walk away with a regular service. Excellent value for money.
Nice and clean hotel with serviceminded and friendly staff. Recently refurbished rooms. The hotel was situated just below Orvieto but it was very easy to take the closely situated funicular to the city.
the room was large and renewed. plenty parking in the street.very freindly manager. i persanly prefer not continental breakfast.
Location in quiet residential area , outside space with good views and secure parking in basement. room could have been slightly larger for 4 people
The staff were very helpful.
very good value price; confortable; cleaning; professional staff; excellent breakfast nothing
A small family run hotel where the hosts took great pride in their establishment. Friendly staff, good breakfast and located close to the station.
Very clean. No elevator. . Breakfast was an extra 5 Euros. Was farther away from centre of town than we expected. Missed the last funiculaire at night . Would have appreciated a timetable of its schedule.
Nice place. In walking distance from the teleferic. Clean.
A classy boutique-type hotel with a very contemporary feel to it, which was not out of place with traditional building. Excellent position. Helpful staff. Not easy to find by car; follow the signs to the Duomo HOTEL (not Duomo) and forget the Sat Nav.
we enjoyed our stay and would go back. the staff was very friendly and attentive.
This hotel was outstanding. It is family owned and operated. Breakfast was great, restaurant recommendations were outstanding and it has secure parking nearby. We highly recommend this hotel. No.
awesome hotel in unbelievable location right next to the most beautiful cathedral in Europe - we could see it from the room !
Location, pleasant staff. Having to leave your keys at the front desk when you leave was a little bit strange, but Orvieto is a small town and it would be unrealistic to expect the hotel to upgrade to modern keycards that can be reprogrammed etc such that there is no security concern.
very nice location
Excellent location very near the Duomo. The hotel seems to have been recently renovated. My room was comfortable, everything worked, and the staff very pleasant. Even the breakfast was good. I would stay there again. At breakfast, what they called orange juice was red and tasted a fruit bunch from a powder mix. Get the grapefruit juice instead.
The staff was very accomodating. I had faided to sak for twin beds, but they managed to give me a room that had twin beds, even thought they were fully booked.
Hotel was in great location for seeing the entire city. Staff was very nice and helpful. Clean and nice The room was very noisy. You could hear people walking and talking in the halls as though they were in your room.
It's location is very good for a visit to Orvieto. Just 1/2 block from cathedral and in sight of it, but on a quieter street. Nothing.
Location, polite staff who were helpful as time allowed. . good breakfast quality and variety. Sri Lankan desk staff and others very helpful with left luggage problem, and other information.. Understaffed. Very plain. very , very small rooms without character. The world's smallest shower. Recommended grotto restaurant so rude and unwelcoming that we left without being seated.
Excellent staff, great location, beautiful rooms and free internet. no
The rooms that we had were dark and dismal. I would not recommend it.The staff however are very nice.
The staff was great very accommodating, very clean, had a pleasant charm, good variety for breakfast, I would stay agin! The only thing the road traffic was a little load.
Once I found it, I liked the location of the hotel. The staff was excellent. The breakfast delicious. The room was rather small, noisey, and dark. Would have preferred more of a view. But was generally pleased.
The staff bent over backwards to be helpful to us. No restaurant in hotel, though a nice one right down the street.
Great building Impersonal staff; poor sound insulation;
The location is great, and the staff were extremely helpful, giving us telephone directions to find the hotel, helping us obtain parking while avoiding tickets, and accommodating our five-year-old daughter with no notice, since kayak doesn't allow you to easily clarify that ones party is comprised of two adults with a child. The room was clean and quiet, and the breakfast was very nice. Would definitely stay again. The only quibble is the air conditioner was a little noisy.
The staff at Hotel Palazzo Piccolomini were incredibly welcoming and helpful, and the room was beautiful and comfortable. I had a wonderful stay!
I loved that it was small, comfortable and the staff were consistently friendly and helpful. The breakfasts were fantastic, and the location was perfect!
Lovely space, clean and pleasant, esp the common areas -- beautiful historic rehab. It was supposed to have internet; I had no luch with it. Also, chemmicals sed to clean the room were pretty harsh. I had to open the window.
Location Room was very small, portable air conditioning leaked a lot of water on the floor, which made it dangerous on a tile floor. bathroom drain dripped all night long, shower stall was so small you couldn't bend over with out opeinng the door with your tush whne you did bend over
view from our clean airy room overlooking duomo fantastic warm welcome great restaurant recommendation la pergola
Considering this hotel had very few reviews on the web, we went in with really no expectations (good nor bad). Much to our surprise the hotel was located in the main piazza, almost touching the impressive Duomo. The hotel staff were wonderful, the breakfast was fantastic, location was perfect, price was excellent and the cleanliness of the hotel was outstanding. I would highy recommend this hotel to anyone staying in Orvieto.
Clean, quiet, low key, in an excellent location, and with friendly and helpful staff The bed was a European size single, and looked laughably small when I first saw it, but was very comfortable and adequate. The shower was tiny, but again, very adequate and functional.
the location - near the arena not really
Family run. Caring, delightful staff. Beautiful location looking out at the Duomo. Lovely. Having to leave.
convenience to everything
great location, nice room and staff
We both loved the wonderful view, the balcony and the pittoresque surroundings in the heart of Orvieto old city. The room was clean, all facillities in order and the atmosphere very relaxing. We stayed one night but wished we had planned for moore. I greatly recommend Hotel Corso to anyone seeking a romantic or peaceful stay in Umbria. The breakfast is okey for a small Hotel, but do not expect the full warm "American" breakfast you get in larger or more expensive alternatives. This however gives you the opportunity to enjoy the Etruscan cucina for an early lunch.
Hotel Building had good character. Outside terrace would have been good if it wasn't raining... Staff levels were inadequate - when I checked out, there was no one at reception and a group of people waiting.
The hotel is located in the very centre on the main street Corso. Just 2 minutes to the Cathedral, public parking is very close which is a very important thing in Orvieto. Very close to all the sights and shops.
friendly staff great location
Very friendly staff, attractive room, good location, good breakfast. Provided a crib without confusion. Bathroom a bit run-down, AC didn't seem to work.
Spacious room, two windows and terrace just out the door off the hallway.
Orvieto is a terific venue for a visit Room was small and air conditioning was ineffective
Lovely room with tiny balcony. In convenient location. Nice breakfast. Helpful staff.
I liked the overall ambiance of the hotel. It is quite picturesque. Breakfest is well done. Street noise is unbearable. Matresses are terrible. Hotel is dramatically overpriced.
Efficient, polite staff Improve cleanliness of patio
Location very good for touring Orvieto. Bus stop for Finuacular train 150 metres away. Close by restaurants, shops.
This place was like a little oasis and by far the best place we stayed at on our trip. Gorgeous rooms and facilities, yummy breakfast and staff that went far over and above to help us out. Highly recommended!
Location was great. Room decor was minimal. Had to walk through a class room to get to the wing where our room was located. Breakfast was ok, standard items. Ok but nothing to write home about. A/C was minimal. It would finaly cool the room at about 8am. If you like to sleep naked then it is fine for you.. I live in the south, in a hot muggy climate and felt the hotel was very hot. No A/C in common areas. Ceiling was strange.... 12' to be able to view the frescos but 8' in the bathroom... I think we lost a lot of A/C to the ceiling hight.
helpful staff,lovely historic town location,on site parking rooms facing street are noisy
Located in the center of the old Ovieto, restaurants and all sites are in walking distance. Close to the highway to Rome it is also a good stop-over. The room under the roof was stuffy and apparently "seldom" used; it felt like it was reserved for low price booking.com. Also reserved a parking but they left the car on the street (with all the luggage).
Attractive, centrally located, excellent helpful staff, romantic setting, and gelato across the street. Good decor and wonderful breakfast. No
The staff are really very welcoming (I cannot stress that enough); carrying bags, providing breakfast after hours - really wonderful. Great location - ten yards from Piazza della Repubblica and impossible to miss from the entrance to the old city. Air conditioning could do with a regas (or a lower temperature, at least), and the internet was a bit slow at times. Otherwise, all wonderful.
Nice looking, clean rooms; accommodating personnel; great locaton in a wonderful, picturesque town.
Spacious and well appointed room. Service in restaurant was excellent despite being quite busy with a big group. Very friendly staff. Breakfast buffet adequate but not exciting.
Just enough comfort for the price. Nice swimming pool. Fair breakfast. A lot of small interventions in the hotel are very ugly. The place in itself is ok, but some investments are needed urgently.
very quiet among nature. A nice room
Soggiorno in struttura "d'epoca"
Beautiful setting That the restaurant was not open for dinner due to a wedding. Would have liked to know in advance.
The atmosphere Few personal
Only stayed on night but it is a real find, quiet area, good breakfast comfortable room and a swimming pool in lovely grounds.
good breakfast served in a nice place state of the bathroom, taps were deficient
Lovely historic building, convenient for Orvieto town(so long as you have a car), quiet and peaceful setting, small number of rooms all well furnished with older furniture Bathrooms could be updated, but all worked ok
The unique style and the service were more than wonderful! The receptionists were friendly and lovely, they were talkative and were constatntly smiling! The breakfast was also satisfying, although I missed the vegetables, we could choose from a pretty wide range of foods from cakes to fruits. The garden is breathtaking, I simpl loved it and the accuracy within it as well as the clean swimming pool. The rooms are clean, comfortable, big and have a unique design which reflect the design of the whole building.
Fantastic service and very very spacious modern comfortable room. Need car
the room was spacious and comfortable. the views over orvieto were stunning and the restaurant food was very good and imaginative . all in all a very good hotel. be nice to have some bathrobes and slippers.
Beatyful place in the countryside, close to and with a nice view towards Orvieto. Good restaurant. Great stay. Will come back!
The localition is absolutely wonderful, you have a full view of Orvieto and the surroundings. There are loads of places to go from there. But the best is the place, it is ideal for a family with children. Big spaces for them to run and play. Two swimming pools and a playground. The staff is very friendly and look after you with loads of care. The place is new and done with style. We spent only 4 days there and we felt very, very sad when we had to leave. Definitely, I place to come back in the future.
Everything.....the room was gorgeous, the views were wonderful and the staff was excellent. We loved the spa facilities and the massage was out of this world. Andrea was so helpful with extras. The breakfasts were delicious. I would stay there again in a flash!! Nothing! Everything was first class.
The breakfast was superb, with wonderful service.
Very friendly and efficient service. Great views of countryside. Very gracious and enthusiastic staff. Excellent spa. Very nice dinner with excellent service. Very nice breakfast. Not very convenient if you do not have a car. Must rely on taxi to get into the city of Orvieto (and back) with a 10-15 minute wait.
The hotel staff was superb. They did everything that they could to ensure a good stay for guests. In addition, the view was breathtaking and our room was extremely clean and had nice ammenities. All food and wine served at the hotel was locally grown.
Views were outstanding... the spa looked exceptional & had a great recommendation from 2 women who had attended..... Staff was very personable & had an enjoyable stay.
The friendliness of the staff, the comfortness of the facility, the dining facility, the size of the facility (it was not large and overwhelming). The proximity to Rome airport. It is a good starting or ending point of an extended vacation in Italy. My only bad experience was that the dining room was closed on two days (Sunday and Monday). We looked forward to enjoying the dining experience at the facility rather than having off premesis.
I though the hotel was very good in a lovely hill top town in Unbria, Italy. The location (with narrow streets) was hard to find on our own, but proved to be ideal for walking tours around the picturest town. The staff was good and helpful.
This is a good hotel very centrally located close to the Corso in Orvieto. The rooms are clean and pleasant and the staff efficient. The view across the rooftops from my room was the nicest thing about the hotel. The sound of church bells every 15 minutes throughout the night is one of the appealing aspects of Orvieto but bring earplugs if you want to sleep! I did not find the staff particularly warm or welcoming compared to other hotels I stayed in on this trip around Tuscany. While billed as 4 star it lacks the feel of a 4 star hotel - the colours and decor are somewhat drab but at the right price it represents reasonable value for money.
This is a lovely hotel and located in the right place in the center of the town. We had a little balcony with a lovely view. The room was beautiful, spacious enough with a good size bathroom. We appreciated the English BBC television channel. The car park was very near. The breakfast was good.
Facilities are lovely and the location in Orvieto is excellent. However, maintenance is lacking (our safe and hairdryer didn't work and there was a layer of dust on the furniture) and front desk service is not customer friendly. They will respond when asked, but offer no proactive help. Front desk staff are "standoffish;" they will respond when asked, but offer no proactive help. In fact, they barely acknowledge a customer's presence when one walks right by them...many times daily.
only the room and view from the room high charges for wifi
Lovely hotel. Staff spoke English and were very helpful. Breakfast was very nice with good variety and the breakfast room was very spacious and comfortable. We were traveling by train and the hotel was in a very easy to access location by funicular and walking. If you have trouble with steps, you should specifically ask for a room on a floor with the lift. This hotel would be pretty much perfect if they got better pillows.
The location in the old Orvieto is excelent.There is so much to see just walking around the town, the narrow streets,the Duomo,the shops and restaurants are all interesting.The caves tour is a must also.
Walking in the town and countryside. Visiting Duomo and other sites of interest Breakfast was unimaginative
This hotel is a spectacular old abbey with terrific photo opportunities. Location was great with a panorama of Orvietto on the top of the cliff. The staff was excellent and very knowledgeable of the history of the abbey. The restaurant was also excellent and we enjoyed watching the chef grill our dinner in the huge open fire place with lots of panache. In spite of the air conditioning, our room was too warm.
The restaurant was amazing as was the setting of the hotel restaurant. Excellent meal. The room did not meet our expectations at all! The bed was nothing more than a mattress on springs, much like a cot. The room was very plain and did not at all suit the rest of the hotel's atmosphere. I was rather disappointed and would not stay there again or recommend it based on the room.
Quiet Hotel was primitve in some respects and could do with a renovation - Head waiter seemed to be reluctant to work. Restuarant expensive for what was on offer.
LaBadia is in a beautiful setting. Added to the fact that you are staying at a very old monastery complete with tower and walls 4 feet thick - I don't see how anyone wouldn't have a relaxing time here. Wonderful gourmet restaurant as an option after a long day traipsing through the countryside. Nice bar/coffee bar to enjoy early morning and later in the day. The staff was very helpful and polite, the linens were very nice. Breakfast buffet was included and was good - there were plenty of options available including cereals, yogurt, fresh fruit, pancetta, cheese and breads. The rooms and bathroom felt a little dated but clean.
The monastery setting was fabulous, even better than the website portrayed. The buildings and grounds were exceptional; very interesting and authentic. In fact, it is the most interesting place I've ever stayed.
Location is convenient - can walk to central piazza quickly. An attractive old-fashioned hotel. Breakfast was very poor - short hours and not much choice - and the restaurant was not open for dinner. However they had an arrangement with anearby restaurant to come and pick you up if you wanted to eat there.
Staff was pleasant and helpful. Nice breakfast. Free Internet.
The hotel was very well located and the staff was helpful and friendly. The view from my room was lovely.
The location inside the city walls of Orvieto Italy Breakfast was minimal - and they served processed American cheese with celophane covering as the only protein. What a very poor selection in an Italian city.
Clean, comfortable room. Staff was very helpful.
Staff gave a brief history of the town and directions to major sites.
close to the 'funicolare' that goes from the town to the train station breakfast could be a little better - would appreciate if they offered yougurts and fruit as well
Quiet, easy walk to all places. Smaller and not as nice as I thought it would be considering the price. The staff was very nice.
Great place to stay. Get of the train in Orvieto, take the tram to the city and then a short walk (300M) to the hotel.
Hotel Valentino is in a convienent location to both the funincular & the town centre.
We stayed for one night on the way to Rome. It was very comfortable to see Orvieto during the day and to leave early in the morning. The stuff was very friendly and the room was very clean and looked like it was renovated recently. A very noisy train that passed from time to time, the railroad is not very far. Breakfast was poor.
we arrived late at night,the man at the desk didnt know a word in english!the room was so cold,it took a long time to heat and we where with a small child.very poor breakfest.very bad value for money
location, price our floor was under renovation and appearance could have been better on walls, etc.
Hotel Orvietto is easy to find, close to the motorway. Our room was clean and comfortable thought the top covers on the beds had seen better days. The hotel is well placed to venture a little further into the medieval town of Orvietto and I would urge everyone to do so as it is a spectactular town with enormous charm and character and only ten mins from the hotel. Good to have air conditioning and the room had a clean fully functioning bathroom ensuite. The breakfast was perfectly acceptable though you have to walk through the office corridor and down some stairs to get to it which is a little odd. It is not in a very beautiful location itself - dual carriageway, the railway and some sort of depot but this hotel is perfect for a stopover.
close to motorway--easy to find
It is between two rainway lines that operate all night. Walls very thin and can here tv all night from one side and snoring form the other
Lcation convenient to Autostrada and Old Town Location let down by busy train line across the road, but otherwise very good
It was easy to arrive to the hotel by car.
We only slept one night, on our way to Venice. For this purpose the hotel was fine.
Very serviceminded staff. Easy to park the car. Near the railwaystation and city of Orvieto. As a hotelguest you have 10 % discount in a very fair restaurant just 150 meters far from the hotel. The breakfast is OK. Situated between 2 railways and one highway in the near, it wasn´t easy to cut off the noice from the traffic during the nights.
