Negative Reviews

Not very close to the town centre

The hotel’s location at the base of the hill outside Cortona presents a problem. Guests report that it is a considerable walk up a slope to the town centre and parts of the road don’t have a pavement. Relying on taxis can be quite expensive and there is a feeling that having use of a car is certainly recommended.

Wi-Fi service not always reliable

The free Wi-Fi service can be a little frustrating to use, guests mention. It seems that some parts of the hotel are worse than others in terms of connectivity, leaving guests without Internet access at various points during their stay.

Entrance a little hard to locate

Guests mention that the entrance to the hotel isn’t very easy to find, particularly when it is dark.
