Palace Hotel Bonone is a Clear Winner in Gubbio {4 stars}

Gubbio is one of Umbria's most rewarding tourist destinations, and the Palace Hotel Bosone is a clear winner among a handful of city hotels.

Located just yards aways from the Piazza Grande, and only 300 meters from the bus terminus (to Perugia and Fossato di Vico), the Bosone has provided hospitality for generations, and boasts such distinguished guests as opera superstar Beniamino Gigli and Elena di Savoia (Princess of Montenegro and Queen of Italy from 1900 to 1946).

The Bosone has been modernized over the years, and has a mix of very traditional and modern rooms. Best known are its two frescoed rooms (212 and 214), perhaps the finest in all Gubbio. Service is excellent, the breakfast (served in a delightfully frescoed room off the reception area) is quite good, and the hotel has its own renowned restaurant (as well as the nearby Taverna del Lupo, under the same management).

It is the sister hotel in Gubbio to the Relais Ducale and Gattapone, both closeby. A clear winner in a winner of a town. (Stayed two nights in mid-May, 2012).

This is a very nice hotel. The staff is very accommodating and the rooms are very nice. The breakfast room is gorgeous.

I booked through icastelli.net because I could not find the hotel’s website. The rate was E90 a night and the website had a ‘lowest price guarantee’ but when I found a lower price on hotel.com they just ignored me.

The drive to and from the hotel can be a challenge (there was some construction going on). I would stay here again but book with someone else.
