We happened upon this place as we were driving around Tuscany. Perfect hotel in the center of Cortona. They do have parking, but we parked for free outside the city walls. There is a steep hill climb from that parking location of about 500 meters, so be prepared if you do this. One can park immediately next to the hotel also for 20 euros/night. Room was clean, bedspreads and decor a bit old fashioned, but there were interesting features such as a hidden closet and views of rooftops and recessed window seats. On the 2nd floor is a large common room with a gigantic fireplace (walled in), that evidently was one of the sitting rooms of the noble family who built this chateau. Bath was clean. Breakfast was amazing and staff super helpful. Good price point! Cortona is gorgeous and we were able to enjoy it without any tourist crowds, as it was October and Covid time.

Staff was overwhelming friendly and welcoming (even to our dog!), the rooms are beautiful with a great view over the roofs of Cortona. Although the rooms could need a bit of rework, I would recommend Hotel San Michele without any hesitates. The city as well as the nearby hills can be explored by beautiful walks. Breakfast was good and plenty. Thank you very much for the pleasant stay!

Hotel San Michele is beautiful, cozy with a feeling that you go back to medieval times. Very well decorated. Huge bedroom with everything you need. Delicious breakfast and excellent customer service. The location couldn't be better. At the entrance of the medieval city next to good restaurants in the heart of town
