B&B Albornoz
Ranked #4 of 35 Urbino B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 27 January 2017

The owner and the property are very good. Bathroom, bedding, etc. all very good. As with all of Urbino, note you will have steps and stairs. My room had a mini kitchen which came in handy. It has a lovely location within a few steps of Raffaele's statue, the Resistance Park. I would certainly stay there again.

Room Tip: Best room is top floor. This is a B&B and there are only 3 rooms.

Excellent location, right next the Albornoz Fort and the ancient walls of the city, but definitely too expensive - 78€ per night - so we decided to spend only one night there.

The owner was nice with us and quickly explained how to get to the city center and some basic rules of the house. Inside the room there was also a little kitchen, but only a few cups and almost no cutlery were provided.

Breakfast was served at a bar a few steps from the B&B and was actually pretty good.

The interior design could be considered modern or fashionable and I did not like it.

One out of two reading lights not working, which kinda sucked 'cause I'm a night reader. Normally I wouldn't care, but having paid so much made me a bit fussy...

Gentile cliente la ringraziamo per aver lasciato il suo prezioso pensiero su di Noi.
Ci fa piacere che la location le sia piaciuta, siamo veramente in una buona posizione, e che la colazione servita è stata di suo gradimento.
Ritengo sia utile chiarire che i nostri prezzi sono chiari su tutti i siti in cui siamo presenti e non vi sono alterazioni, come i nostri arredi corrispondono alle foto pubblicate Nostro sito. Lei al momento della prenotazione era consapevole dei Nostri costi. Inoltre dei € 78 che Lei ha pagato per due persone è compresa la tassa di soggiorno di € 3 che richiede Urbino di cui ha ricevuto regolare ricevuta. Non butti la ricevuta se tornerà in Urbino le potrà essere utile a prescindere in quale struttura soggiornerà.
i Nostri mono locali sono forniti per quanto riguarda la cucina, di tutto quello che serve per quattro persone, Voi eravate in due…, per l’ intensità della luce che non era di suo gradimento, avremmo potuto far qualcosa solo lo avesse fatto presente durante il suo soggiorno, avrebbe potuto constatare che la Nostra ospitalità va oltre al fornirle, tutte le indicazioni utili per visitare al meglio la meravigliosa Urbino.
Grazie ancora per aver soggiornato presso di Noi.

B&B ALBORNOZ is a family business run with passion, attention to detail and a big smile. The three studios are modern and comfortable, inside the historic centre of Urbino and very close to a free parking and the fortress with a magnificent view over one of the most beautiful cities of Renaissance. Nadia and her husband are always available to help and make their guests' stay a special one. I would definitely come back!

We spent six nights in this lovely B&B and highly recommend it. The location is perfect, very central to restaurants and the main piazzas etc and you can get good exercise walking up the steep Via Raphael to get home every day. The Mysteries of Italy room on the top floor was perfect for us, it is spacious and clean, the bathroom is modern and there is a little kitchen with a fridge and stove if you want to cook although why would you when you are in Italy! Nadia is an excellent hostess, very welcoming & speaks good English, she was able to provide us with recommendations for restaurants and places to visit. Breakfast at the cafe across the road was a great place to eat and watch the locals enjoy their morning ritual of coffee & pastries. Make sure you include a Sunday in your stay as the cafe is closed so Nadia makes you a selection of cakes that were divine!

I highly recommend B&B Albornoz.

The physical property is very nice. It has recently been completely restored and very tastefully redecorated. It has a delightful private courtyard that is especially nice when lite up at night.

I stayed in the Mysteries of Italy room. In addition to a bedroom, there is a recently renovated private bathroom and a full-function kitchenette. The décor is tasteful and comforting. The room was exceptionally large and had everything a traveler wants. It is a great room.

The B&B’s proximity to free public parking is a huge plus. It is a very short walking distance away. During my stay, I took four day trips to locations outside of Urbino. Upon my return each day, I readily found convenient parking. (This is significant in a town like Urbino.)

Another plus is that there is a new, modern, self-service laundromat within one block of the B&B.

B&B Albornoz is a family-run operation, and it feels that way. The operators are very nice people, very helpful and accommodating. They will make you feel comfortable immediately. I could not have asked for more.

Some should be aware of-----Urbino is built on, and between, two hills. The B&B is on the crest on one of those hills. It is a short walk to the center of town. Downhill is easy. Uphill will be an issue for those who have trouble with stairs. I am in above average physical condition for a 67 year old male. At two-thirds up the hill, I found myself stopping for a couple of minutes to regroup. It was not a significant thing for me. However, I think it might be different when I am 77. Also, I have two friends with severe knee problems. The uphill return would not be good for them.
