눉The little balconies and terraces shown in the photos belong to particular rooms: they are NOT available to all guests.
The bathroom in the apartment badly needs to be remodeled. The floor is wood and has been damaged by water from the shower. There is mold growing on the wall where a repair was done and not properly sealed.
The Wi-Fi never worked from within the apartment: I had to sit in the hallway to get a signal.
Our taxi driver was not from Orvieto, so we called La Magnolia to get directions. The receptionist gave poor directions, causing the driver to leave us 2 blocks away. We were left to find La Magnolia on foot with our luggage in the pouring rain. Had to call again. No one came to the doorway to look for us.
The next morning the owner Serena appeared at the bar/cafe where breakfast is served, but she was occupied the whole time by another guest who seemed to have some complaints about her reception. Serena's phone kept ringing so it was hard to converse with her. She was cheerful, but essentially absent for us the entire time. I'm willing to cut her some slack since she upgraded us to the apartment, but it would have helped if she had explained her inability to receive us. This is a B&B: the expectation is for somewhat more interaction with the owner/manager.
눇On a tiny square shaded by a magnolia, only a block from the cathedral. Many restaurants to choose from nearby. We requested two double rooms as we were traveling with another couple. Magnolia upgraded one room to an apartment on the same floor, which was much appreciated as there are no common sitting areas, and it gave us a comfortable place to meet. We took advantage of the kitchen and large dining table both days to prepare and eat a picnic lunch. Both rooms had huge windows on the square. The windows were double-glazed so we could block out the noise from the busy street. The beds were comfortable. A large open bookcase as well as a wardrobe gave us plenty of room to spread out our things. There were many charming decorative touches. The breakfast was good. Excellent coffee beverages made to order. The lady serving was not an experienced server, always forgetting to bring spoons, etc., but always happy to provide them when asked.
