What an amazing view of Tuscan hill country from our room (#1). The outdoor dining area is spectacular. The service is good, rooms are large enough, our bathroom was typical, however most of the other rooms have remodeled spacious bathrooms.

Back again at Albergo Il Castello one year later.... The place is just as pleasant as before and a treat to stay at. The music, the morning cappuccino, Alfred, the clean rooms, the garden, the location and views, etc all continue to make this a great play to stay. Staying at Il Castello is like the icing on the Tuscan... More

We stayed at Il Castello for ten days, seven of them with my husband’s art instructor and fellow art students. We thoroughly enjoyed our quiet, whistle-clean, well-appointed room, which overlooked the town and rolling green hills beyond, and in the afternoons we loved to drift from the patio (with its ten free-range tortoises) to the street-side bistro tables with their...

This friendly, comfortable & unpretentious hotel is right beside the top of the funiculare overlooking the town. It's position is perfect; on one side the view over the town of Certaldo and the Tuscan hills to the West, on the other a view straight up the main street of this tiny medieval town of Certaldo Alto to the fortified 'vicarage'....

When my daughter got married in Certaldo Alto my sister, parents of the groom and I stayed at this wonderful little hotel. Alfred, the manager/owner and his staff were charming, friendly and completely at our service, nothing was too much trouble for them. Alfred plays the piano in the bar and charms everyone. I cannot recommend the hotel highly enough... More

This venue provided far and above the most pleasant experience one could ever expect. Hats off to Alfred and his staff for making us feel ever so relaxed and comfortable during our 4 night stay. We stayed in room #2 with the wonderful view of the lower city. The sounds, the charm and the atmosphere will always be in my... More

I had my wedding reception here in 2006. The hotel and grounds were our's "privately for the day. The food is amazing - simply wonderful. We didn't actually stay in the hotel, but my parents, sister, grannie and a few friends did.

This is the kind of place you want to tell everyone about...and keep it a secret, like some other Italian spots I have visited! My first stay in Il Castello was for two nights in July, 2013, during the Mercantia festival (www.mercantiacertaldo.it) which in itself is a great experience! For both stays, I was lucky to get a room facing... More

This is a local hotel to enjoy. The location of Certaldo Alto is something special and this hotel is right in the middle of it ! We stayed a week and within a day or two felt extremely local ! Friendly locals, nice staff and good jazz music made for a great stay. The place is an old protected building... More

We had been to Certaldo Alto many years ago and enjoyed lunch at Albergo Il Castello. Decided if we were to return we would stay. The hotel was lovely and quaint, just steps from the funiculare. The room was clean and well appointed, the bathroom decent and the view was lovely, overlooking Certaldo and the Tuscan countryside. The only downside... More
