From photographs online, you would think that you are checking in to a lovely first class resort hotel. It's July in Italy, but this hotel has turned off the air conditioning to save money. The area has plenty of mosquitoes. The windows lack screens. The pool is ok, but is distant from the rooms. That could be a plus since... More

Stayed here one night the end of June . The property is remote and with a closed restaurant was difficult to get back and forth for dinner in town. The staff speaks not one word of English so directions are non existant. The room was small and the breakfast meager. The only thing going for the hotel is the fabulous... More

Arrived one ovening at about 6.30 pm on spec (but it was only June). The outside looked extremely tired. As for the inside I have no idea, as the door to reception was locked and no-one answered the bell. We had a good look around the outside of the building and could find no sign of life. We assumed the... More

The hotel Il is located in a beautiful building overlooking the city of Pistoia. The rooms are clean but very small. The staff is getting tired of the endless stream of visitors that arrive every day and especailly those who donot speak any Italian.

We stayed here for one night and because we enjoyed it so much and found is so restful we booked to stay at Il Convento again on our last night in Italy. Viewing it on the internet did not do the place enough justice. As we approched the front exterior after the short drive up the hill, it looked a... More

After a 13 hour drive we arrived at 10 in the morning. I wanted to rest at the pool but it was closed because of a marriage. Apparently there was a marriage planned in the hotel but we were not warned. When we back at the hotel at eleven the parking lot was full so we had to park on... More

A former monastery, the hotel is located on top of a hill overseeing the city of Pistoia, with very nice view, and temperature is cool also during hot august. Very nice the swiming pool, and excellent the food. The owner produces his own olive oil, which I recommend to taste with bread and salt. The hotel if far from the... More

Finding our choice Florence hotels fully booked, we came by chance upon this delightful former convent, converted with love and no money spared into a classy 30-room hotel filled with antiques, yet providing modern amenities and comfort. Located beautifully on a hill side outside of Pistoia, up a country lane through vineyards and olive groves, the hotel has a commanding... More

We stayed here two nights recently on a tour. The hotel is beautiful, the location is beautiful and it has a very serene feel to it. We had a special dinner the 2nd night and it was absolutely delicious. The owner, however did put a bit of a damper on things. He was pretty grumpy in the morning and I... More

Stayed here on buisness trip to the area. I was really looking forward to the stay, it looks so good on its website and thought it would be welcome change from the usual big chains I stay in. The hotel is nicely furnished, well maintained and generally very comfortable. The standard room I got was small, comfortable, but furnished rather... More
