Gubbio is a wonderful town and the hotel was lovely. Guidance as to parking would be helpful because of traffic restrictions and difficulty of getting near to it. I would advise against this place for less physically able and less active people unless you forewarn the hotel you need assistance. There are two lifts to help with the hill.
There's not enough room in the 'what could be improved' section (!) to say that in 2 weeks travelling around Italy - which has such good coffee - the only bad coffee was at the Palais Ducale. So bizarre when everything else was good! And we drink espresso.
The hotel was perfectly situated just a block from the main square (Piazza Grande) and a short walk to the Funavia, with views over the old town and the countryside beyond. Our room was enormous, with a frescoed ceiling, king bed, sitting room and modern bathroom. The staff was extremely helpful and attentive in every way. The only shortcoming was the breakfast, which offered a limited selection and poor quality.
Great location but there is no parking so you're on your own to figure that out. We found street parking that was not posted as a no parking area and got a parking ticket, so be careful where you park. The room was very nice and had a balcony. The floor was dirty, but everything else seemed clean. The bathroom was absolutely tiny but had everything you would need and was fine for one person.

From the moment we arrived until the day of our departure we were enthralled with the staff and everything about our stay.
Staff is Absolutely Attentive to ones needs. I had taken our suitcases out of the trunk and put them near the front entranceway to the Office Lobby where my wife was greeted by the Owner. I went to park the car and upon my return found that one of the staff had "whisked" our bags to our room!
The property itself is an amazing place to stay and use as a base when visiting Umbria. Besides the Castle Grounds to wander around it is still an actual working farm!
We toured around Umbria for 4 days and put +2,700km on the car and were always looking forward to returning to the Castello di Petroia each evening - whether to have dinner or use the Den for Internet Service - or our room.

Dominating this superbly preserved medieval town on the wooded slopes of Monte Ingino is the castellated Palazzo dei Consoli, containing seven bronze slabs carved with Etruscan script. Many other grey-stone, terracotta-tiled buildings line the twisting streets, some with sinister blocked entrances known as Doors of Death.
