“Delightful Surprise at the Exquisite Art Throughout the Hotel and Especially
in our Bedroom”
We were travelling day to day without advanced reservations. When we checked
out from a hotel we requested them to make a reservation for us at our next destination
(price point 100 euro plus or minus). In this instant the Hermitage Hotel in Florence,
Italy selected the Albornoz Palace Hotel in Spoleto for us. What a pleasant surprise!
It was right off of the autostrada, yet convenient to downtown Spoleto. On first
view this contemporary building was much different from our previous lodgings.
There is art on the grounds and as well as in the reception area where we checked
in. Arriving at our room, we noticed a butterly over the entrance and entering
were struck by the art display throughout the room - - subtle and different than
anything else we had experienced elsewhere. There was much art throughout the
hotel to admire. There was a meeting at the restaurant so dinner was not available
but we had a very pleasant breakfast. We enjoyed Spoleto and a bonus of inside
free parking. Staff were very cordial and most helpful in helping us get a hotel
at our next destination. If we ever get back to Spoleto, the Albornoz Palace Hotel
would be our choice.
“A different hotel, great experience”
We didn't actually stay the night at Albarnoz Palace but ate there and visited
many of the rooms on a special opening where some of the newly decorated rooms
were being inaugurated by the artists themselves. What an amazing hotel! it is
just outside the city walls so very convenient walking distance to all the attractions
of Spoleto. it is a large very modern structure with sculpture filled garden with
pool, incredible hall, spectacular terraces with views of the bridge and rocca
and fantastic rooms each with their own art work and distinctive shape. The furniture
is all leather Frau and the beds looked very comfortable. Many rooms had terraces.
Our meal was also very good. I think this hotel is doing something very important
in promoting the work of young international and Italian artists and they are
doing it very well.
“Unique and Surprising Albornoz Palace Hotel”
Just a positioned between the walled city and beautiful San Pietro church, the
Albornoz Palace Hotel surprised us with its architecture and sweeping views.Our
rooms were individually decorated and signed by the designer. An ultra-modern
hotel, it blended and complimented, rather than intruded. Large windows on two
sides provided us with breathtaking views of the lighted Tower Bridge and city
at night. A rooftop veranda offered lovely vistas of the Umbrian countryside.The
staff was exceptionally courteous; the rooms comfortable and bathrooms extremely
well planned (with built-in magnifying mirror beneath kind lighting). Breakfast
was elegant and completely appealing. The room rate (in May) made this hotel a
“Everyone was very friendly and helpful!”
The staff, especially Hilary, was amazing. Hilary assisted me with getting wifi
to work (it wasn't working on my floor) and not only offered her personal computer,
but permitted me to work on the one in their business office for my needs. Everyone
was very friendly and helpful!
“The staff both friendly and very helpful”
We found the staff both friendly and very helpful. Their local knowledge was
good, and they assisted us in every way possible. It was also invaluable having
a secure car park so close to the town.
