Beautiful, outstanding, a constant favorite
Posted 16 Jun 2019 on Hotels
Hotel San Michele is not only my favorite in Cortona, it’s one of my favorites in the world. The modified 16th-Century Baldelli Palace, it is gloriously picturesque and very comfortable. The staff are generally remarkable and are outstanding at making guests feel both welcome and constantly at home- they deserve lots of credit for how well they do that. You can’t expect the sort of cold but predictable uniformity of a Hilton here though; it is wonderfully quirky from room to room, with some for example having different bath and shower arrangements, layouts, some with grand windows onto via Guelfa and others having huge original hardwood beams running through it. Above all, it is unique. Appreciate the history and comfort of Hotel San Michele, and feel as if you have blended into the rich history of this beautiful comune. It is a remarkable treat.
