Hotel Gattapone - central and lovely

Good (3.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on February 23, 2009

When I arrived in Gubbio in April 2008, I was a bit exhausted from the road traffic. It was late afternoon (around 7 p.m.) and I only wanted a bed without much searching. I found Piazza Quaranta Martiri, parked the car and set out to look what was nearby. Luckily, Hotel Gattapone was near and also looked nice. Obviously April is not a very popular month for travellers – during the 3 nights I stayed here I was twice the only guest and had many nice and interesting chats with the night porter.
The room was big and faced the lovely terrace (photo 5), but due to the cloudy and cold weather I didn’t sit outside. I especially liked the bathroom; it had heated floor tiles, which came handy after my daily walks in the crisp weather. I also didn’t freeze, the room heating was excellent and I could also use spare thick blankets. TV and minibar are available. No coffee/tea making facility though.
Breakfast was more than the typical Italian croissants – selections of cheese and cold cuts were available, as well as cereals, orange juice and yoghurt. Coffee was freshly made (but “American coffee”).
The hotel has 16 rooms and two suites on 3 floors (elevator available). It is prepared for handicapped (see bathroom photo), but then I tried to imagine how people in wheelchairs would be able to manage the steep town streets which often even have tiny stairs.

Unique Quality: I liked my stay here, because the staff was very friendly and helpful and I got so many interesting tips for sightseeing and background information from “my” night porter. And the whole ambience was cosy as well.
Although the hotel is located in a dead end side street and is quiet, Gubbio’s bells have their rhythm – see local customs section. If you are not used to this, bring earplugs.

I paid 70 Euro per night for my double room with single occupancy (April 2008). But I will not stay there anymore. Not because of the hotel, but because I will stay in Residenza di Via Piccardi (see previous tip) anytime I come back to Gubbio because that’s exactly my kind of place.
