Residenza Antica Canonica
Ranked #5 of 10 Hotels in Citta di Castello
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 17 December 2014 via mobile

I stayed there with my wife and a couple of friends for one night only, very independent and spacious accommodation (residence more than hotel), not luxurious but clean. The place however makes you feel history, and the location is more than central, it is absolutely worth the price. Elisa is undoubtedly one of a kind, but remember to ask her for the hairdryer!!!

We wanted to spend 2 weeks in Umbria, staying in an ancient walled town but easily accessible to the E45 and places like Perugia, Gubbio, Arezzo and Urbino. We also wanted to see Umbria in autumn and experience the food and wine of that season. We found all this in Citta di Castello and, particularly, in the Residenza Antica Canonica. Elisa, the directrise, is delightful, and knowledgeable (she is an art historian). The apartment was very good value for money and we enjoyed our stay. The building is old, even ancient, so the windows are small and few, the rooms are large (which made them a tad chilly this autumn and the heating had not yet come on). The kitchen area is quite spartan but the essential equipment was there...as well as some coffee, salt, sugar etc in the cupboards. There is a supermarket in the neighbourhood as well as really excellent trattorias, the market twice a week, a very cosy bar/caffe across from the Duomo (of which this resideza is part). Free parking is available. Our only 'complaint' was the lack of decent lighting to read by but then this is a problem we have found all over Italy! All in all, we can recommend this establishment for experiencing Umbria.

Room Tip: Because of its position in the town, this is a quiet establishment so any of the apartments would be...

Citta di Castello is a little out of the way, but it is well worth a visit, and Residenza Antica Canonica is the perfect setting for your stay. Located right next to the cathedral, in a building that features a fresco from the 15th century, this place is just pervaded by the medieval charm that makes Citta di Castello so exceptional. Elisa is an excellent hostess: she went out of her way to make sure we got our key even though we arrived very late at night. The apartment we stayed in was perfect, with lofted ceilings (the pictures don't do the space justice) and great windows that let the breeze and sunshine in. The kitchen and bath worked perfectly, and the room was well decorated with appropriately antique-looking furniture. From the Residenza, it is an easy walk to the main Piazza and all of the restaurants along the Corsi. Oh, and you absolutely cannot beat the value. In short, if you're looking to stay in Citta, this is the place.

Room Tip: Wifi works best if your room is close to the main office. No screens on the windows, but enough of a...

This enchanting residence is situated in the old "Canonica" of the Cathedral of Citta' di Castello, next to the famous round bell-tower, one of only two existing in Italy.
The entrance is through a small shared hall, leading to the inside, through a lift : when you get out of the lift, you are inside the passage of the ancient residence of the priests, with a very high vaulted ceiling, with small doors opening to the various apartments.

Our apartment was very large, with a well fitted kitchen with solid timber doors and real granite counters, a bedroom with a sumptuous double bed with posters, an enormous bathroom (at least 20 mq) and with high vaulted ceilings throughout with wooden beams across.

The view from the windows : a beautiful scenary of the red roofs of this old city all around us. The apartment was spotlessly clean, and the owner was very helpful and kind to us.

We will definitely return to Residenza Antica Canonica soon !

Room Tip: try to get room 2 or 3

Città di Castello is itself charming enough, but this hotel beats everything. The room was in fact a suite; all the basic facilities (good shower, plenty of hot water) were there, the service could not have been more friendly. Definitely THE place to stay in Città di Castello.
