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

It’s a lovely quiet historic hotel with very simple decor and a fantastic modern bathroom. Not huge, but it had a nice rain shower and it appeared to be very new remodeled. Just steps away from the funicolor, it was very easy to get to. I also loved the piano bar below as the music drifted up to our room.... More

Certaldo is an amazing hill town to experience. From friend's recommendations, we stayed 5 nights at Albergo Il Castello. I am trying to find the best words to describe this beautiful hotel. It is what we dream of when we are back home. The views from the room at sunset are mythical across the valley. In the distance you can... More

I love staying here at Il Castello! The staff was extremely helpful and friendly. The owner can speak English, Italian, German, french, Swiss,and even Portuguese. The location and scenery is truly indescribable. The castle has a very cozy and intimate feel, i highly recommend staying here if you come to Italy.
