Stayed 3 nights and used the hotel as a base to not only explore Orvieto but also Assisi and Spoleto. The hotel and the room was perfectly located on the square adjacent to Il Duomo and had, as per the request on the booking form, given us a room overlooking the square and cathedral. The hotel was clean, bright and simply decorated although the marble floors did mean the sound from other rooms carried a bit. The breakfast was the usual continental fayre with plenty of choice and served 8 until 10. Ideally suited to couples as a one or few night stop to explore Umbria.

Location can't be beat on the main plaza across from the gorgeous Duomo. The outside of the building blends in with plaza but inside is designed very modern. Room was small with little storage space but was well designed and comfortable. No description of services or amenities at check in, so had to know what was available. Limited staff and they were often busy on the phone. Excellent place to stay though. The minibus drops you off right across from it, so no need to wait in line at Informazione or carry luggage far.

The location on the Duomo Piazza was superb. The hotel was a very pleasant place to spend one night (unfortunately only one night). If we return to Orvieto we will definitely stay at this hotel. We booked only a few days before we travelled and our room was rather small but it was not a problem.

The location is ideal. Davide, the owner/manager, is a really sweet guy. The young woman who works the desk in the afternoon is lovely and movie-star gorgeous. Our very clean room was on the small side but perfectly ok and reasonably priced. If you get a room here you will be lucky, and happy.

We had a lovely time staying at Hotel Virgilio. The rooms were clean and quiet, and waking up to a view of the Duomo each morning was breathtaking. The staff are friendly and excited to greet you. Overall, a quaint and lovely place to stay. We'd surely stay again upon return to Orvieto. It's a wonderful town!

The Hotel Virgilio looks out over Orvieto cathedral- this has to be one of the most striking locations in Italy. The building is old and totally in keeping with the surroundings outside; inside it is not spacious but well modernised and comfortable. You would have to be very gloomy not to enjoy this place.
