We did not stay here but ended up being stranded in Cortona without a bus or taxi in sight. The excellent concierge who spoke superb English found us a taxi when most were booked up due to a wedding, and very comfortably rested in lounge until taxi arrived - very grateful ++

This hotel is in the old city within close walking distance to many restaurants and shops. It is an old style boutique hotel that is updated, and absolutely lovely. Luxurious! and the price is right. The service was excellent, the décor fabulous ! Walking the old streets of Cortona takes one to a different age and place. Very romantic and...

Returning to Cortona is always a joy. San Michel has a staff of incredible people who are helpful and kind. The rooms are beautifully appointed and so comfortable. The breakfast is beyond sumptuous and a true value. I wouldn't consider any other hotel in Firenze!

Booked this Hotel via Voyage Prive for a 7 day stay.... Whilst the hotel is listed as 4 star, we would put it at 3 star. Cotona like many Tuscan towns is a medieval town built high on top of a hill!

Lovely communal areas in a gorgeous building. Our room (standard) is of an acceptable size, with all expected features (TV, air conditioning etc) but no complimentary water or coffee/tea 🙁 Staff are friendly and very helpful. Breakfast is standard (with filter coffee only...). Only cooked part are eggs and boiled (rather than fried!) bacon. Overall a nice experience but that...

We had such a great stay here. The room was enormous and the bath was modern. No noise from other rooms. The breakfast is fine and a very friendly attentive lady looked after us each morning. She gave us some helpful tips about touring around. Cortona is a beautiful town.
