Hotel San Luca
Ranked #14 of 23 Hotels in Cortona
Reviewed 16 September 2017

Hotel San Luca was a great pick in terms of its location just a few minutes walk from Piazza della Repubblica. Breakfast with panoramic views was another good thing. The hotel is quite dated, but well-kept. Our guest room was nothing special, but comfortable enough for one night stay. Free public parking is available one street down the hill; you can use escalators to go up and down.

The view from our deluxe room was spectacular. The room was nice and air conditioned but it was not good air conditioning. The breakfast was nice and would be 100% better if we were given glasses instead of plastic cups.

We had a drink at the hotel before going out for dinner and the waiter was rude when we said we weren't ordering dinner.

Great location and the parking was free and not too difficult considering the part of town it's in.

Myself and my partner stayed at The Hotel San Luca at the beginning of August and were not disappointed. The area itself is of an untouched and rustic Italian village and really is very, very beautiful.

The hotel is situated right on the piazza. The second you arrive outside the hotel you will be greeted by what I can honestly call ' the most spectacular and breath-taking view of Cortona'.

The reception staff were very nice. Our room was lovely and clean. We were very lucky to have been blessed with a room that had yet another spectacular view of Cortona. We were very much delighted. The air conditioning is great. It saved us massively as we stayed during the 'Lucifer Heatwave'.

Facilities all very contemporary with aspects of historical art hanging on the walls.

The elevators were very, very small. We found them quite old fashioned and almost claustrophobic. So if you don't like small spaces, avoid them or ask to be roomed on a lower floor. They were very rickety and we didn't feel like they were the safest! We had no problems with them though.

Unfortunately the only bad thing I would have to say about the hotel is the breakfast provided. The pastries and juices feel very much supermarket bought. There are so many glorious restaurants and cafes owned by local owners though, that I would recommend not having breakfast at the hotel and exploring the village and trying the various cappuccinos, and 'caffe;. The pastries are a whole lot better in other cafes no more than 2-5 min walks from the hotel.

Overall we had a lovely stay at this hotel and would definitely stay here again. It's affordable, clean and the staff are lovely. But the view is by far the selling point.

Room Tip: Don't have breakfast here, go and explore and eat at the cafes in the area. Local and authentic!

Very good place to stay for 1-2 nights. The hotel is elegant and simple. The view from terrace on the valley is astonishing. Breakfast is average. Standard rooms are very small. Interior of the lobby is very nice.

Actually had a very nice lunch meal. Sat outside by the circle, overlooking the city of Cortona and the view of the Tuscan countryside.

The menu was quite broad, we had a mixture of appetizers, bruschetta with several spreads, quite tasty. The main courses were also good, I had some excellent lamb chops, but the other dishes the family had also looked great. Chicken on a skewer, ravioli pasta, steak and burgers. Enjoyed some decent prosecco.

Decent place to eat.
