Reviewed 4 weeks ago via mobile

Stayed here for one night recently. Parking is free outside the walls, close to the petrol station. I don’t think it’s possible to park inside the city walls. Walk in through the city gate adjacent to the petrol station and continue up the fairly steep slope, approx 200m maximum. Breathtaking views down the hill. I towed my suitcase and found it not too difficult - if you take your time. I had a short breather couple of times along the way. I don’t mind slopes, but I can’t bear steps. Thankfully no steps at all. Hotel Italia is just to the left at the top of the slope. The receptionist was warm and friendly, the room spacious and the hotel charming and clean. There is a lift to the rooms.Once up high, Cortona the town itself is quite flat. I really enjoyed our visit and will come again and stay at Hotel Italia. Loved the fact there was a kettle in the room to make a cup of coffee when I felt like it. Thank you Hotel Italia.

My 2 girlfriends and I stayed here. Wonderful! Ramona was exceptional! She was very friendly and helpful, the perfect hostess! She even booked us a cooking class! The hotel was very clean and elegant looking. Our room was big for a European hotel room. I do say though with 3 girls getting ready it needed another mirror and trash can in the room. Other than that it was perfect. Great location. Easy access to everything. We will most definitely be back!

Three women who fell in love with Cortona and it started with Hotel Italia..a perfect place in the perfect spot. Ramona and Diego were so sweet and helpful with whatever we needed and suggestions. My only regret is that we couldn't stay longer.

My girl friend and I stayed here from 8th September till the 10th September 2017. We arrived in a hired car and got lost among the narrow streets. Finally locating the hotel Diego & Ramona at reception explained the "forbidden route " through the town. They assured us that they would sort it with the local police. Now it's October and we didn't get a fine so it must have been "taken care of " . There is a fine for driving down local roads in a lot of towns in Italy . Something we were aware of but the sat nav took us to on a magical mystery tour !
Now to talk about the hotel.
From the very first in counter we had with Diego & Ramona they were so helpful and welcoming. Every time we entered the lobby one or the other would appear to help us or just chat. Nothing was too much hassle . We choose the bigger room which had a Hugh toilet / shower room overlooking the police office. The bedroom was clean and very well finished with a very comfortable bed. Three great nights sleep was had by us. The breakfast was included in our room rate and wow. The view alone from the restaurant was breath taking. Breakfast was nice but coffee making machine was dodgy ,kept on tripping out. But we read the trip advisers reviews and seen that if you caught one of the staff and asked for a coffee they would bring you a freshly ground coffee or tea. If you choose to stay here you won't be disappointed,just park outside the town walls and you will be ok. We would live to come back ,all we need is an excuse
