Reviewed 20 October 2017 via mobile

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.

Dear Bonniebnj

Thank you for visiting Hotel San Michele.
We’re glad that we could provide you with a comfortable stay close to the main square. We hope you’ll visit us again soon and perhaps have the opportunity to try our Torretta – a wellness area situated in a tower with an amazing view to the valley. Thank you for taking the time to write a review 5/5 and to have focused on our team.

Yours sincerely,

The hotel and staff are really lovely. Breakfast is good with lots of choice. We upgraded to a larger room but unfortunately we did not have views and room looked out on to hotel walls. Bedroom however was lovely. Bathroom with jacuzzi bath but no shower which was a little disappointing. We paid for hotel parking which was really useful.

Room Tip: Make sure you don't have a room without external views.

This by far was a beautiful hotel room/suite and the staff was awesome. The city of Corona is fabulous and if you stay, book here at San Michele. It is located up the hill, and just a few mins by car from the train station.

This hotel is top-notch in every aspect. Our room was big and had even a living area complete with sofa on the side. The staff is very helpful and friendly, immediately took our car out of the way as the access road is very steep and narrow. Bathroom is big and comfortable and WiFi works well. Breakfast is very good.

Spent a week here in Sept. From the moment we were picked up at the train station to the moment we left for our next destination everything was perfect and just seemed to get better with each passing day. The rooms are surprisingly large, very clean, well air conditioned and with good supportive beds.

But that was the easy part ... the staff at this hotel is what made the difference. Warm, friendly, helpful and always with a smile only just begin to tell the story. I apologize when I get these names wrong, but these folks should be recognized and when you stay there look for them - they will make your stay the best. Said, who picked us up at the train station and then carried our bags to our rooms, as we enjoyed a bottle of prosecco in the patio, was great and ever present to offer assistance. Gabriella who worked the front desk during the morning/day was always a smiling face to great us in the morning. Anna (I know I got this name wrong) who was there every morning with a wonderful breakfast, but most importantly a cup of cappuccino to get the day started, was the best. Fabio who did everything it seemed in addition to tending the bar in the evening was the hardest working guy I have ever met. Be careful what you ask him for ... he will have it done before you realize what has happened. And last, but definitely not least LouAnna who worked the front desk in the evenings. She always had a smile to greet us as we came 'home' after roaming around Cortona and gave great advise on where to go and where to eat. And she gives the best hugs when you leave - we will miss her.

If you find yourself in Tuscany this is a great place to use as a base to make day trips and visit all the other incredible places in Tuscany. And the Town of Cortona is a wonderful place in its own right. But Hotel San Michele is a place you must stay - in our opinion the absolute best Hotel and staff in Cortona! Thanks for a wonderful week in Tuscany. We will certainly be back.

Room Tip: The rooms - all of the are great. Our friends stayed in one of the suites and it was incredible.
