The B&B Dolce Maria is the perfect place to stay in Cortona. Paola is a sweetheart and is very helpful. The B&B is just beautiful. The website pictures do not do it justice. I traveled to Cortona with my sister, and Paola gave us adjoining rooms which would be perfect for a family. My room had a spiral staircase that...

We throughly enjoyed our stay at the Dolce Maria in Cortona. Our room was on the top floor with a steep staircase leading to the patio on the roof, which offered a spectacular view beyond the walls for miles. The room was large with a very comfortable king bed, and a bathroom that was very clean, newly tiled, and with...

The innkeeper Paola, was extremely accommodating, good english skills. The B&B room I stayed in was roomy by Italian hotel standards and the food was simple but good. The location was close to the main Piazza but far enough away so there was no noise. Highly recommend it.

If having a sparkling clean room is as important to you as it is to me, this is your place. Amenities abound-crisply ironed white sheets, fluffy bath sheets, along with bedspreads you are not afraid to lie on, they are so clean. Add to this the gracious welcome awaiting you from Paola and her family, the fabulous Tuscan food served...

We chose to stay at Dolce Maria because of its Trip Advisor reviews and also because we wanted to stay in Cortona itself instead of in the surrounding countryside. We weren't quite certain we had the right place at first, as the sign for the restaurant (which has a different name, Locanda al Pozzo Antico), is more prominent than the...

My wife and I stayed at B&B Dolce Maria in early June 2011 and found it delightful and memorable. It is located in a restored medieval palazzo in a quiet street within easy walking distance of the Piazza Repubblica, Piazza Signorelli and the Via Nazionale pedestrian mall in Cortona. It has only six rooms. Ours was spacious, clean and tastefully...

My partner and I, travelling with a larger group staying in Umbria, ventured to Cortona for the day. We were looking for someplace to have a little lunch, off the beaten path. Somehow we stumbled across this amazing little restaurant. We could not beleive the smells coming from the kitchen, where they were in the process of taking homemade choclate...

We stayed in Cortona for a week and visited this restaurant at least 3 times. The food was amazing. I would have never thought the best steak I ever had would be at this restaurant in Cortona, but it definitely was. Highly recommend the truffle pasta as well! Paula, who I believe owns the restaurant with her husband, was EXTREMELY...

A few years ago I found the B&B Dolce Maria. The old palace was just restored to be a B&B. Since then I have stayed there with my friends many times. The hotel's owner family is very friendly and helpful. Mrs Paola is a true powerhouse. She and her husband try to fulfill the client's smallest wish. Dolce Maria is...

I stay in this hotel during my Christmas short break and it turns out a fabulous trip coz of the hotel owner Auntie Paola's welcoming and friendliness.
