    Awesome view (patio) of valley and location just 200 meters down hill from town; ideal room with 5 beds for family of 5; bath was big with 2 toilets and 1 working shower

    LACK OF CLEANLINESS in bedding and the staff did NOT seem to care after my wife complained. They even confessed they did not always change the bedding! The sheets and pillows were dirty. The staff put clean pillow cases over yellow, stained, nasty pillows; sheets had stains and looked dingy.

    Private parking in Cortona and great distance to the historical city center. Nice looking building from outside. Great terrace.

    From outside it looks much more attractive than from inside. From inside you can feel yourself like in an old hospital or psichiatry... The bed was nice but the floor, bathroom and walls were really old and didn't see any renovation for decades.

    Always our favourite spot - in fact the only affordable option we know of in Cortona! Just outside the city walls, so it's perfectly located - nice and peaceful (with great views down to Lake Trasimeno), and yet just a short walk from the town.

    Don't rely on the Wi-Fi as it's very patchy. It wasn't a problem in the end, as we found a fast (and free) connection just up the road at Enoteca Enotria (first bar on the right as you enter the town) - a good and inexpensive place to go anyway, to enjoy the local food!

    Location is good, near city center. The convent was big, institutional and oddly staffed. The guy didn't shiw up until later to get breakfast ready. We went to town instead.

    The view were spectacular but the place overall needed TLC.

    Location

    Creepy atmosphere, dark, staff not around much, overgrown gardens, wouldn't let you eat your own food in terrace and they had no good food. Didn't know there was bad coffee in Italy. Nescafé and bad microwaved croissants.

    Cheap, nice staff

    They closed the desk at 8pm and left a phone number, which isn't great for people without a cell. They might want to give directions to a pay phone or put a phone outside their door or something. Having to figure this out certainly made for an adventure.

    The room had a lovely view.

    Lots of mis-representations on the booking.com listing, which Nicoletta (?) flat out lied about upon arrival. Wifi is only available within about 10 feet of the single router in the building, that is in the office downstairs. She claims that it reaches the entire building, but this is very incorrect. Then blames it on Cortona's bad internet, also false. Another mis-representation: "private external bath", means dirty shared bath with no toilet paper. We had an additional 2 nights booked, and were told when we tried to cancel that we would have to pay anyway because of a one-week cancellation policy. It was a real fight to get them cancelled, and only because they were a separate reservation. I would not recommend this property to anyone that expects integrity.

    Fantastic view of the valley and Lake Trasimeno from a very authentic terrace. We booked a room with private bathroom outside but given the fact of availability of bathroom inside room we were upgraded at no cost, which is very thoughtful. Breakfast was really nice. Parking availability at no extra cost. Beautiful walking distance to the center of Cortona. Helpful and very kind staff.

    Amazing view from outside looking over the valley. It was nice that they had parking for our car, too.

    They charge 4 euros for breakfast, which i asked what they served and they mentioned ham, cheeses, and other items. I figured it would be worth getting. When we showed up there was just cereal and pastries and not very good coffee. The kind of 'continental' breakfast you expect at super 8. I was disappointed mainly because I don't believe any place should charge for the kind of breakfast they were serving. If I could do it again I would pass on it. The rooms were simple, felt like you sleeping in a school.

    The vieuw from the window

    The very poor breakfast on disposible tablewear. We had to make our own tea at breakfast. There was an electric cattle, but the water did not get warm enough. There was no fruit or yoghurt or something extra. Only very small croissants. The packaged toast was stale. On the double bed there were two old small single blankets. The bathroom was very old. The host was not very helpfull and we waited 20 minutes till she came to welcome us at the arrival. We had to pay immediately and did not get a receipt.

    While I was there, two choral groups sang in the small theater on the first floor of Betania, absolutely magical. Afterward we shared a buffet dinner on a wide, leafy patio that overlooks the valley far below. Every few minutes one or the other group would sing another song. Convenient to town, good parking, quiet, comfortable bed, friendly staff. The owner took me for an extended tour of the facility, which until recently was a nunnery. Some of the walls could be Roman.

    The terrace, the view. Fair value for money.

    The bathroom needs renovation.

    Room was large and clean, no hand soap however. nice location, quiet and pretty

    Staff were friendly when we saw them, which was once, when we checked in. No one was there when we went to check out, and whole building was ghostlike. door to terrace was locked - terrace was the reason we chose the accommodation in the first place

    The location was so close to town and it was a beautiful view from the room! I loved that there was a private bathroom in the room! Really friendly staff and such a cozy room! I fell in love with Cortona!

    On arrival we were met by the lovely Driss who was very kind and attentive - even giving us a lift to the bus stop on the last day. We arrived to a very clean, spacious and simple room. It was cold but on the 2nd night we were given an extra heater without having to ask. Due to being out of season (I think) the dining room was very cold, we were the inky ones having breakfast! Perhaps out of season it would be better to have a portable heater or offer breakfast in bed?

    That it was cold and no staff around in the evenings which felt a bit spooky in such a big house.

    Rooms are clean. The hotel is good, considering the price we paid, and would have a good review if wasn't for so many staff faults.

    It wasn't a good experience for us. The staff wasn't there when needed. As non Italian speakers we just needed someone to call a taxi for us and provide us some information, but the staff wasn't anywhere in the building. We waited for about 1 hour, go out and came back, and they didn't appear. So it was very frustrating, considering there was an "opening ours" sign on the door and they suppose to be there on a Saturday afternoon. Also, heaters weren't working properly, so the staff provided one mobile heater for us, which wasn't enough for December cold. You can only have wifi access if you pay for 1 hour or a full day, but you have to ask the staff for a temporary password and to pay - so, you have to be lucky to find them in the building when you need it.

    Good location with easy, direct walk into Cortona. Plenty of parking as we were the only guests there. Great views from large balcony in good weather

    Spartan rooms, uncomfortable mattress (I put mine on the floor for firmness), external bathroom needed a makeover.

    Great location, in the middle of garden, nice view from windows, parking place for cars for free.

    Dirty and old-looking rooms, dirty bathroom, hard to find - it is better to put GPS coordinates to your GPS, unless you want to wander through the narrow streets of the town and risk crashing your car.

    Price was reasonable for a single room, even with shared bathroom. Location was great in Cortona

    Bed was uncomfortable. I used my air mattress the second night for a better night's rest.
