A well established guest house near the Piazza della Repubblica. Whilst a little tired in places it was comfortable and clean. The breakfast was functional, and Paula's homemade cakes were a real treat. We were in a good sized family room at the top of the house (lots of stairs) which was fine.
The only negatives were the noise from the kitchen and courtyard which went on until midnight both nights, even with the windows closed and ear plugs you could still hear the music; and the hotel wifi didnt reach our room. Overall nice place, great location, clean and comfortable.
Fantastic location easy walking distance to the central piazza once you arrive. There is an incredible sweeping west view of the surrounding countryside. You take a secret spiral staircase to the rooftop and watch the sunset!
The property is great; however the town of Cortona has infamously steep climbs with your bags up from parking just outside the walled town. As long as you are reasonably fit it is doable but may take some effort.
All was fantastic!
The room was well appointed and very large and had a wonderful surprise of having a roof terrace to ourselves with a spectacular view!
We loved it but had low expectations so we had no complaints!
Paula and Franco were like family. Note there is no elevator and rooms are up 2 flights
Just 100 metres from Piazza della Repubblica, the Dolce Maria is located in the mediaeval hill town of Cortona. It offers free Wi-Fi, a restaurant, and rustic yet elegant rooms with antique furnishings. Featuring exposed-beam ceilings and terracotta floors, rooms at the Dolce Maria House are decorated with chandeliers and frescoed walls. Each has views of Cortona, the Valdichiana or a courtyard from the large windows. This 15th-century building has a Tuscan restaurant serving local dishes, accompanied by wines from all over Italy. A daily buffet breakfast is provided. The Signorelli Cinema and Theatre is 200 metres from the property. Lake Trasimeno is 13 km away, and Assisi is a 1-hour drive from the Dolce Maria B&B.
