What a lovely hotel. The reception staff were fabulous, so helpful and thoughtful with trip recommendations. The rooms were brilliant and views over the pool stunning. Breakfast was typically Italian and delicious. Would definitely go back and visit again. Just lovely :)

We have just returned from this charming hotel just within the walled city of Volterra. The reception and dining staff were friendly and efficient. The rooms though small were very comfortable particularly those with balconies. Breakfast was excellent! My wife left an expensive pair of walking boots in the very large indoor car park on leaving! These were returned free... More

Volterra is a great place to visit, but I would not recommend this hotel. Whilst the front desk staff were very polite, the room we had was complete rubbish and tiny besides. This is supposed to be a 4 star hotel (I think the ratings in Italy tend to be on the generous side, buyer beware!). I am 5' 3"... More

We stayed here for 3 nights. The hotel is inside the town gate, a 5 minute walk uphill through the historical streets into the main square, shops and restaurants. The hotel was nicely decorated with communal seating areas, small bar and a dining room which served continental buffet breakfast, good range of cereals, pastries, eggs, cheese, cold meat, etc. They...

This hotel is ideally placed to explore Volterra, in my opinion one of the best hill town's of Tuscany if not the best- big enough to be interesting with munch to see and do but also still a working town, not a tourist honey-pot. The hotel has good sized rooms and is spotlessly clean. The reception was endlessly helpful, finding... More

We chose this hotel based on the location and four star rating. From the moment we checked in I knew it was going to be a nice place to stay. The lady at the front desk was warm, welcoming, and informative. She suggested we unpack and go to the garden for a view from the hotel walls....spectacular. The staff gave... More

The staff was extremely kind and welcoming. The hotel is beautiful, the rooms are very comfortable and clean and the breakfast was gorgeous. Our room on the third floor had a little terrace wtith a great view over the pool and the valley. Everything, including the value, was perfect.
