Not our first stay here--we love it and we'd come back again. The staff is incredibly friendly and go out of their way to be helpful. The location is superb, near many of the places you'll want to visit, including the funicular taking you up to San Umberto if you're adventurous. There's no onsite parking, but free parking areas are... More

Another wonderful stay at Relais Ducale with great hospitality and assistance from the staff. The rooms are comfortable and the breakfast very generous. The central location is perfect for wandering the ancient city.

Its location overlooking the main square is wonderful - people make their way up to the Piazza Grande for the view alone, so to be staying right there is a treat. The hotel building has great charm, with two lovely gardens in which to enjoy a rest or a drink. We had a nice big room, with good natural light... More

This hotel on the main square in Gubbio will be recognised by Don Matteo fans as this is where many scenes in this TV series were filmed.

I'm not sure what the expectations were for some guests who posted less than stellar reviews. We found the hotel to be very charming and comfortable, the staff exceedingly friendly and eager to help, and the location simply cannot be surpassed. As for the church bells ringing, that's what churches do. They ring their bells. Which only adds the the... More

Staff were without exception charming. Very helpful on check in ref parking, happy to oblige with requests for ice etc. We didn't expect the two super terrace areas.

This hotel has a great location at the top of the hill on the main square, and is a rather meandering set of spaces joined by stairways and the occasional lift. While the staff are friendly and helpful, the place itself has a rather tired air, and furnishings and the rooms are a little worn at the edges. While it's... More

One of the best locations you could ask for. Gubbio is an incredible place to visit. It's not one I knew too much about before visiting, but it's the one I remember most.

This hotel with no restaurant initially appears rather higgledee piggledee but its location in the centre of an old roman walled city is perfect and the stunning views across the valley are worth a detour.
