눉Just a few things: First, in almost any old stone building like this there seems to be a lot of mildew, so if your sensitive to that, beware. It was more noticeable in the public areas than in the guest rooms. Second, and this is maybe a bit unfair, but our experience has been that when a hotel is only about 1/3 full, they’ll give you a somewhat nicer room than the category you booked, without you even asking. Here, we actually asked, and were just quoted the full rate for any upgrade. Again, we have no right to it, but it would’ve been a nice goodwill gesture. Third and finally, the location. The hotel is in a pretty countryside setting, but finding it is not so easy (be certain to print and bring the little map they have posted on their website) and getting in to central Orvieto is a bit of haul, by car and then elevator and foot.
눇The building is beautiful, it was kind of neat to stay in an old monastery, the rooms were decent sized and reasonably laid out, the internet in the rooms was fast and easy and reliable (but not in the lobby or dining area), and the restaurant was pretty great (small portions, clearly intended for multi-course dining, so potentially a bit pricey but I wouldn’t say over-priced).
