    Everything was perfect, the hotel is very close to the bus station (~5 min by walk) and to some monuments. The room was clean with air conditional. A rich breakfast is served in the morning. The staff is very friendly helping to solve your requests.

    Very Noisy airconfition, small shower cambin in a huge bright but not comfortable bathroom Vary basic breakfast Upon our arrival we asked the receptionist for directions to the most known Restsurant of the city (1st in trip advisor review) to realize after getting there that it was closed for restoration. Especially in a city like LAquila I think such things receptionist may be aware off and advise their customers accordingly.

    Big room, kind staff, very clean Excellent espresso for breakfast

    The beds were very old, the mattress could use replacing, and well as the comforter. The whole inside could definitely use a make over.

    The staff is very nice and professional. The hotel looks new on the outside but the inside is outdated.

    Great little place. Not fancy but very comfortable and well run. It is in a great location to step out and see the sights. The bar is cosy in the evenings with great value drinks. Breakfast is very good and there are always enough staff around to make fresh coffees etc. We looked around town and would definitely choose the San Michele for our next visit.

    Not really the fault of the hotel but parking was a problem. City is still being rebuilt following the 2007 earthquake (and looks like it will take at least 10 more years to complete) and the nearby roadworks meant we couldn't park close to the hotel or use the hotel garage.

    Very friendly and helpful staff. Great restaurant recommendations. Hotel centrally located very close to main street and an easy walk to the heart of town. Hotel was clean and comfortable.

    L'Aquila is at this moment not the right city to go and visit. The centre is under construction, because of the earth quake from 2009. No people living in the old centre of the city. Only the workers. A am sorry to tell this, but it is the truth.

    Impossible to get to, due to construction blocked streets. No parking anywhere due to festival in town. Finally told me they could park car for us for 10 euro. Should have told us that first. Traffic police and big trucks left and we were able to slip in.

    Breakfast great. Room quiet. Staff spoke good English. Lots of restaurants around. Area felt safe.

    The staff is extremely friendly and professional. Rooms are spotless, wifi is reliable (not that usual for Italy), everything is well-organized and reasonable. I requested a tea kettle and a tea cup in my room, and got it! The location is also great. The only thing I could think about that perhaps makes sense to improve is to make breakfast more italian (whatever it means :).

    I have family just outside of L'Aquila and we have not been back since the earthquake. This hotel is a perfect place to stay when in town. So easy to get to from the bus station and in a great location in town. Staff was amazing and so helpful. I can speak some Italian but the staff knows plenty of English for those who do not know the language. I hope this hotel thrives and the city returns to the gem it once was. If in Rome, I highly suggest a night or two venture to L'Aquila.

    Oddly difficult street address to locate by Navi. Confused with another street in village 10 km distant! Had to call hotel for cross street, which worked perfectly well.

    Lovely staff, who made us feel welcome all the time. No question was too silly for them to answer with a smile and useful information. Nice mountain view from 4th floor balconey rooms.
