This religious guesthouse was an absolute find! I really enjoyed my stay and would definitely return there again. I highly recommend it.

This inexpensive religious guesthouse was an absolute find! Orvieto is always fun to visit, but sadly, I was just overnighting on the way south. It is literally thirty meters from the Duomo, to the right and across the road.

There are three floors of rooms and there is a lift. There is a breakfast room if you want to use it and breakfast is extra. The grounds are extensive and I recommend that you request a room overlooking the back with a view which you can see from the photograph, taken in the late afternoon, with the tennis courts and the beautiful countyside.

The rooms are large and very comfortable with pristine, new bathrooms. The single rate is 35 euros a night.

When you arrive, drive in through the Via Soliana entrance and the car parking is directly behind the building. Use the steps on the left to enter the building with your luggage.

The main office is on the first floor. Adolfo is not always in the building so you may have to contact him on his cell phone. His number is 3475793062. It helps if you speak some Italian.

This religious guesthouse hotel is centrally located, very clean, well kept up and Adolfo is very personable. I really enjoyed my stay and would definitely return there again hopefully for much longer.
