The people were very helpful for directions and the place was clean and tidy. It was just what I needed on my business trip and would recommend it for the price. only one little thing which if your in a historical place like Gubbio expect lots of bells to be ringing. lovely place
This hotel is in the middle of the historical town of Gubbio. Every Tuesday and Sunday there is a lovely market in the square. If you open your window there is a lovely atmosphere. The hotel is within walking distance of everything. Although the staff don't speak a lot of English they were very kind. The hotel is basic but spotless and in a beautiful town like Gubbio you won't spend too long in your room! Friends spent time in other hotels but they were out of town and spent time on taxis or driving. We had a fabulous holiday and can't wait to return.
This is just outside of the old town on a main street, so the noise and associated gas smell was an issue. Gubbio seems to have a unusual number of low powered motor bikes that make a high pitch squeal. The bedroom window blocked some noise, but the bathroom window was open -- the bathroom was so tight that it would have been challenging to close that window. Clean, but dingy. There were glass tops for the desk and each of the nightstands, but one of the glass tops had cracks and breaks with stains underneath, evidencing that the glass had needed to be replaced for a while. The bed was two saggy cots clamped together and made up with one set of full (matrimoniale) sheets. The extra blanket was almost 1/2 the size of the bed. The elevator was broken. The desk staff was nice. The day person speaks English well (and explained which doors were locked and when and which doors remained open). She also explained where we could park for free. The night person does not speak English, but he figured out our request. Breakfast was pastries, cereal, milk, "juice," and a Nescafe machine's offerings. This was our first 2 star hotel in Italy that wasn't wonderful, so I am not clear how the star ratings work.…
My main problem with this hotel is the lock out (or in). At about 10:00pm the management called our room to say that the front doors were locked until 8:00am. It meant we could leave the hotel but not enter again unless we called the night manager who was not on the premises. The rooms were basic but relatively comfortable.
If you want to be in the middle of all the action, Hotel Oderisi is an affordable 2-star hotel smack dab in the center. My husband and I found the check-in, service, cleanliness and breakfast to be all within par for the 36 euros pp that we paid. The only drawback? The noise level on the weekends when Gubbio becomes a draw for daytrippers and folks visiting from out-of-town. If you're a light sleeper this may pose a problem, otherwise, we found Sunday and Monday nite to be much more quieter. Dining options are a-plenty. I'll be writing detailed posts on the restaurants that we dined at on my website: Rubber Slippers In Italy.
