Luv Italy
Our 5 day stay in Cortona was amazing. We loved the Bifore. Laura was amazing. She bakes her heart out in the morning to make the best breakfast in Italy!!!! The location of the Bifore was central. It is close to the bus stop, restaurants etc.

Le Bifore is unique, I have stayed here twice now and in 2 different suites. The view of the lake from our last stay was amazing. The people here are wonderful. Coming back from a day out is like coming home not back to a hotel. Laura, Margarita and Daniella all have the same focus that nothing is too much trouble. Mariana the owner so welcming and all interested in you. Highly recommended!

8/10 Very Good

Le Bifore Cortona
Idyllic Tuscan hilltop location used in many film sets . Excellent service and local expertise and advice especially from Laura. Le Bifore is little challenging to locate within the old city walls because of one way system. Use free car park on the South side of Cortona and outside escalators to locate the property. Excellent venue we were only disappointed not to have a room with the spectacular views. First class choice of restaurants in easy walking distance at a complete range of prices from great value to Michelin star. Wifi was variable.

10/10 Exceptional

The hotel is splendid, the breakfast plentiful and the helpful staff provided impeccable service. I would recommend the hotel unreservedly. Our only regret was the enforced early checkout time (10:00). Location advice: to reach the hotel directly by car, you must drive around the outer city wall of Cortona (SP34), enter the old district by the Porta Colonia, proceed on via Dardano, go pass the stazione Carabinieri to turn left on via Maffei proceed until you reach via Santa Margherita where you must make a very sharp right turn to go down the hill. The hotel is located less than 50 M down the hill and you can park on via Santa Margherita within the white lines.

Beautiful hotel with great view. Breakfast was excellent and staff we very friendly. So close to main part of town. Parking with the car was an adventure. However, hotel meet us at piazza Garibaldi and guided us literally through the town.
