Hotel Mamiani & Ki-Spa ****
Located just outside the centre of Urbino, which the hotel is linked to via a minibus line that stops very close to the hotel, Hotel Mamiani offers its guests a relaxing place to stay surrounded by the green hills of Montefeltro. Modern and welcoming, this hotel is ideal from bike lovers and offers them various services including a garage that can carry out repairs and expert guides who take guests on tours of the main cultural and natural attractions in Urbino and the surrounding area. The hotel also boasts an onsite restaurant which serves up specialities from the Marche cuisine and light dishes for guests who are staying at the hotel for well-being programmes and purposes. In fact, well-being is truly taken care of here thanks to the ‘Ki Spa’, where various naturopathy treatments and relaxing psycho-physical programmes are available as well as consultations for individuals or groups about healthy eating. Furthermore, the hotel has a well-equipped hall that can be used for business meetings and training courses.
The ‘Ki Spa’ at Hotel Mamiani offers guests an exclusive well-being circuit that involves making use of the multi-sensory shower with essential Indian rose wood oil, the vapour room that is enriched with essential amber oil, the hydrotherapy pool with Dead Sea salts and the relaxation area that features a tea corner. The spa also has an ‘energy rebalancing bed’ in an area where guests can undergo massages and perform a ritual that involves using the Himalayan rooms, relaxing on the warm sensory bed and taking a bath in a juniper wood Japanese tub filled with essential oils and flowers. Other exclusive offers include Meiso Shiatsu and the Stone Massage.
The 62 rooms at Hotel Mamiani, in Urbino are divided into the following: Comfort, Deluxe and Junior Suite and are equipped with all services, from Satellite TV and safe to a minibar. The Deluxe rooms, in particular, offer a view of the Montefeltro hills.
Hotel Mamiani serves up breakfast as an American buffet, featuring homemade cakes, and for lunch and dinner guests can enjoy specialities from the Marche cuisine at the ‘Il Giardino della Galla’ restaurant, which is also open to the public and looks out over Montefeltro. Bread and pizza are made fresh at the restaurant in the wood-burning oven and dishes prepared using special produce from the area, including porcini mushrooms and truffles, are also available.
Some of the hotel’s services and facilities:
Considered the ‘ideal Renaissance city’, Urbino is an architectural gem and is home to numerous master pieces: next to the Palazzo Ducale is the National Gallery of the Marche which hosts paintings by Raffaello (and you can even visit the house where he was born), Piero della Francesca and Tiziano. There are also numerous gothic style churches and a neoclassic cathedral here, including the St Domenico, St Agostino and St Giovanni Battista di Gerolamo Genga churches, as well as the Palazzo Ducale and nearby Novilara and Candelora castles. A visit to Pesaro is a must, the home town of Gioacchino Rossini who the ‘Rossini Opera Festival’ is dedicated to (the most important event here during the artistic, cultural and folk season). Lastly, San Marino is certainly worth a visit with its ancient squares, museums, churches and medieval houses all built out of stone, which preserves the style of the period in which they were built.
