Nice location but the hotel was disappointingPosted Jun 4, 2014
Pros: The location,the historic building and the garden.
Cons: The cleaness,the bathroom and the furniture
Location: The location is perfect in the heart of Gubbio and you can visit a lot of churches and historic places
The Hotel is in need of better cleaness,the shower was clogged and the water flow was very low not only in the shower but also in the w.c. tank. Cheap furniture and the quality of the breakfast was not as expected.

STAY HERE!!!Posted Oct 14, 2013
Hotel Relais Ducale helped make our stay in Italy unforgettable! I have stayed in great places all over the world and Relais Ducale is on top. The staff was unbelievably courteous and took care of our every need. They even made all of the connections so that we were able to go paragliding and on a cave tour which we were unable to do ourselves. The accommodations are superb with a beautiful courtyard garden and spectacular food. Gubbio is a magnificent town that proved to be a fantastic location to explore the many attractions in the region. I can't say enough good about Relais Ducale. Great people! Great place! Great value! Go see for yourself...

You cannot get more central than thisPosted Aug 6, 2013 on Hotels.com
First, Gubbio itself - one of the great gems of Italy, but seemly little known in the U.S. I should insult the town to try to keep it for myself, but that would be dishonest. The main entrance for the hotel is through a coffee bar adjacent to the medieval central piazza (both the town and the bar are used as a setting for a long running Italian television show Don Matteo which is available on Netflix). A bit of labor is involved to get luggage to a reception area several flights up - we walked up a flight of stairs (though it had a disability escalator had we chosen to use it) and then were able to take an elevator the rest of the way. The reception staff is cordial and helpful. The Duomo is nearby in one direction (steeply uphill - everything in the medieval part of Gubbio seems to be either steeply uphill or steeply downhill) with the Palazzo dei Consoli across the piazza in the opposite direction. Bells mark the quarter hour day and night, but that is part of the charm of a medieval town. Sunday morning church bells were ringing in every direction. Our room overlooked a nice courtyard, and on an earlier stay in a room higher up in a different section of the hotel we had a truly magnificent view. Breakfast was adequate, but nothing out of the ordinary for Italian hotels. There are some spectacular caverns at Frasassi about 30 mi / 50 km to the east.

The inside and outside dinning room and the swimming pool over look the picturesque hills of Umbria with the historic hill top town of Todi on the sky line.The food was interesting a little expensive fish is not the way to go.

Stay in a Palace in GubbioPosted Jun 18, 2013 on Hotels.com
This was a terrific experience. We found the bar/restaurant of the hotel facing the main plaza and were whisked in to the hotel proper. Sean lead us to the parking lot (outside of town) and drove us back. The room was large and comfortable and the bathroom was immense. All the hotel staff speak English fluently, and even the servers at breakfast understood our requests for coffee, etc. The main entrance to the hotel is off a pedestrian/moped alley that we didn't notice at first, so it was a bit confusing when we returned from dinner and found the bar/restaurant entrance closed. There were instructions in English on the door, which we followed up a set of stairs and then along an alley to the main entrance. All of the restaurants seem to be downhill from the hotel and it is a lot harder to walk up the hill after a large meal than to walk down in the first place. That said, the hotel offered us a discount at their sister restaurant and we had the best meal of our trip there (a truffle-based tasting menu).

Delightful hotel in the mountains of GubbioPosted Jul 23, 2012 on Hotels.com
First impressions of the hotel were 'strange' but once we were inside and having climbed all the steps, the hotel and staff were very accommodating!

Location, location, location!Posted Jul 12, 2012 on Hotels.com
My partner and I spent five nights in this lovely hotel this July. The location was fabulous, just off the quiet main square, where one breakfasts in the sunshine each morning. Our room was generous, nicely furnished and more importantly - a cool haven from the blistering summer heat. Gubbio is a little known gem, and made an excellent base from which to visit its larger, noisier, Umbrian neighbours.

Very good stay. Warm welcome - helpful, pleasant staff. so close to all the sights of Gubbio.
