I stayed here for 5 nights as part of a group walking holiday. The location is fantastic. Near where coaches/buses have to stop, and right in the centre of things. Good for exploring, then taking back shopping, having a quick break and then back out again. There are things to see and do all day and evening in Volterra. The... More

My wife and I stayed here for one night in May 2012. We paid a little more for the view, which was well worth it as it gave the full effect of the town and the valley below. Parking was easy, if you were willing to pay. Hotel staff were available (if inattentive) and fine (high maintenance guests should probably... More

Hotel Nazionale is very conveniently located in an old palace, at the entrance of the city walls of Volterra, two steps away from the bus terminal and the Piazza dei Priori. I was pleasantly surprised by the amiability of the staff: I wrote them to confirm my reservation and asked for a room with balcony (I am a smoker) and... More

The hotel is well situated in this beautiful town. The rooms were clean and well serviced each day. The breakfast was just about adequate but in the five days we were there, there was no fresh fruit or vegetables. The evening meals were inadequate and the climax came when we were presented with cheese on toast and chips for the... More

After visiting Volterra four years ago I was looking forward to rekindling my love for this place but it has gone to a bad start after eating here!!! Having arrived late on we had no reservations made so chose this on a whim - first mistake! We felt the staff really lacked any service as we waited quite a while... More

We regret that You didn't appreciate our food. We accept all criticism in order to improve, even if they are very hard. . It's not easy to meet all tastes, but we really can grant that our staff, which also include young people with a great desire to do very well , is really attentive and qualified in their work. More

The hotel is in a great location and appears quite nice from the hotel lobby. If you receive one of the two front facing rooms they are not bad as you have air flow however the rest have one window facing a back alley that has sewage smell constantly throughout the day. The rooms get very hot and have nothing... More

Stayed on 3rd floor with deck overlooking plaza and had a great stay. Parking garage was close by and made our visit very easy to access. Large older room was dated but clean and comfortable . Very reasonable price for location
