There’s nothing separating the balconies, so if your neighbors are on theirs, it’s basically no privacy. They should probably put up some tall plants or something. The furniture choice in the sitting room was strange and the couches were... More

It is a nice hotel. The room is decorated with beautiful curtain and the tone of colour is the same through the room. The room has a small little balcony which can have tea or coffee. Uunfortunately, it was a rainy day. The breakfast is good especially the bread and cheese. Dinner is fantastic...An unforgettable day in Tuscany.
