Recent guest reviews

Hotel San Michele was the perfect choice during our visit to Cortona. Everyone we encountered at this wonderful hotel was incredible. The location made it easy to get anywhere you wanted to go. We will definitely be back.

Our 45th wedding anniversary was spent in Italy. We went straight to the Hotel San Michele not knowing what to expect. It was fantastic. It was the perfect place for us. Our room was great, but the people they made it special. Every person we talked to were very friendly and caring. They made us feel as if we were a part of their family. I cannot wait to go there again!

Hotel San Michele has some of the nicest people we met on our honeymoon! The entire staff made us feel so welcome. The nice women at the front desk made sure our honeymoon was celebrated in the sweetest way. We will definitely return to Hotel San Michele if we get the chance to. Breakfast every day was wonderful, be sure to stop in at the bar any night of the week but certainly for happy hour and enjoy all the shops just around the corner from the hotel! Thank you for a wonderful stay!

This is our second visit to Cortona and to the Hotel San Michele. The hotel is well situated close to the main square and walking distance to everywhere. The rooms are spacious and beautifully decorated. We recommend this hotel highly.

Two couples recently had the pleasure of staying at Hotel San Michele for 5 nights! What a treat! The front desk staff was incredible, especially Lou Anna, who went out of her way to make our stay perfect. She recommended restaurants, shopping, things to do. The entire staff was always there willing to help in any way. This hotel is in a perfect location for walking the town's streets as it is in enter of town. They offer parking and park the car for you and bring it to you when needed. The rooms were lovely. We had a room on 5th floor which overlooked the valley. The breakfast was very good. I called before going on our trip to order a bottle of Prosecco for anniversary of the couple we were traveling with. Lou Anna at front desk had taken care of this upon our arrival. I cannot say enough about this hotel. We will certainly stay here again. Thanks for the perfect stay.

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.

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.

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.
