Highly recommend This beautifully restored historical palace turned hotel; a treasure and a joy to stay at for 4 nights this fall in Cortona. Beds were comfortable. If you want a shower, ask when booking as not all rooms have one, ours had a bathtub. It is in a great location in Cortona a half block from the main piazza, shops, and many good restaurants. Much larger than usual rooms for a city hotel, all the rooms are different. Our floor had a spacious ‘drawing room’ and a bar that had a cocktail hour during the week. The free breakfast was fantastic. Be prepared for the extreme hills and have good walking shoes. Parking is difficult but the hotel has a garage ($20 euro night for cars; 30 for vans). The concierge arranged a great winery tour for our group at a much more reasonable cost than anywhere else I checked. We emailed a month in advance for reservations. Wonderful staff, all speak lovely English.
