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.
We stayed two nights in Room 212 which had been recommended on Expedia. The room is up a small circular stairway. Room 212 is huge -- and is actually a suite with a separate sitting room. The bedroom is enormous, with a very high frescoes ceiling. There are large windows in both rooms that look downhill over the town of Gubbio. This was a lovely place. The staff were gracious and very helpful. I would highly recommend it.
In the old town of Gubbio, there are only narrow, one-way streets. Finding the hotel was a bit of an adventure, but not unpleasantly so. There were a few places where signage could have been improved, so we looped once or twice until we found the next correct turn. The hotel is 100 yards or so past the Piazza Grande, so the location is ideal.
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.

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.
