Piazza Del Comune 19, Montefalco, Umbria, Italy
"First, a word about Montefalco. A gem, a small village perched on a mountain, a center for gastronomy and wine. A half dozen wonderful sophisticated restaurants. Not packed with tourists as many other Umbrian towns and villages, perfect for wandering aimlessly on the maze of little streets and stopping in the stores of local food specialities. The Palazzo Bontadosi sits on the lovely town square and is and was the palazzo of the town. The ceilings in many of the bedrooms have museum level decorations. Most of the rooms are very spacious. There is a spa, only partially open when we were there, that got rave reviews from family members who tried it.There are, to be honest, a number of quirks that should be acknowledged. The rooms were apparently furnished so that they were ready to be photographed (there is a book available showing the Palazzo in all its glory). Unfortunately, those spectacular rooms have no drawers for clothes, almost no closet space. We used a lovely fireplace to lay out clothes. Bathrooms also a bit quirky from constraints of old buildings- but reasonably functional. Wifi only sporadically available in a variable spot in the breakfast room. But the staff were all wonderful, breakfasts good and responsive to special needs. Management obviously has its eyes on making this a real destination. Now they need to modify the rooms for people really staying there e.g. with drawers for clothes. Even with these caveats , next time we are in this area, this is the hotel, this is the town where we will come."
"I strongly recommend Pazzazzo Bontadosi for a special weekend! The town itself is incredible. In a very beautiful building at the Central Square of the town, the Palazzo is elegant but with a modern interior. I have found there a remarkable treatment. The all team working here is attentive and beautiful to look at and never made me miss something. The Spa was an experience as much as the food/service at the restaurant, where I have tryed the best wine and trouffeles combination. Don't miss a lunch on the terrace where the view is amazing. Coming back next year! Thank you for the beautiful weekend!"
"What a beautiful hotel. Beautiful modern design, sparkling clean. The room was fantastic with an amazing view to the town square , classical music playing from one of the restaurants - a real experience in Montefalco. The Spa is a must.... clean, modern and relaxing. It’s. Family run business and it’s so well kept. Thanks Maria and family you were a great!!!
