Excellent location in historic surroundings
Posted Sep 14, 2014 on Hotels
My wife and I are taking a slow journey from Ravenna to Rome, stopping along the way. We stayed overnight in Gubbio, which really merits a longer stay. The Hotel Gattapone proved an outstanding choice, with friendly attentive staff, a great location, very good breakfast and a discount off dinner at their sister restaurant Taverna di Lupo (where we had one of the finest meals of our lives and we've been to many restaurants with awards and stars). The feel of the hotel is one of a private chateau or house, with spectacular views and historic furnishings (historic in design, not worn out!). Two pointers: if you cannot sleep through bells, find a place outside town - we had no difficulty sleeping after the excellent food :-) Second pointer: the room is clean, but the carpet is now perhaps ready for replacement - a small opportunity for improvement, not a big deal. We will definitely be staying again when we continue our exploration of Umbria.
