The hotel is located inside the Fortezza Orsini in Sorano, overlooking the medieval town, the Fortezza. Both the countryside and the town centre are reachable in 3 minutes on foot, following the ancient access routes from the fortress. There are several restaurants, bars and pubs in Sorano. There is a bus station roughly 500 m away and a train station in Orvieto, which is about 45 km from the hotel.
The fortress is one of the most impressive examples of military architecture in Tuscany and was one of the most important strongholds. The hotel is inside the citadel of the fortress, in its oldest part (reconstruction works were carried out on the citadel by the architect Sangallo), and can be found in the small square after crossing the bridge over the moat. This charming historical hotel has 16 rooms furnished with refined elegance and period furniture, from whose windows guests can enjoy a breathtaking view of a cliff over the village of Sorano. Guests are welcomed into a lobby with a 24-hour check-out service and a cloakroom. There is also a TV lounge, café and breakfast room on site. Conference facilities are available for business guests. Room service is also available (fees apply), and guests may make use of the hotel's car park.
The guest rooms are all different because they have been drawn from existing rooms and designed with respect for the old architecture which has not been altered. Each room has an en suite bathroom with shower and hairdryer. Rooms are fitted with double or king-size beds and all come equipped with direct dial telephone, satellite TV, minibar and courtesy set. Individually regulated heating is standard in all rooms.
