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.

Lovely little hotel well situated within walking distance of small bars and a few restaurants. There is free parking a short walk away and you can bring your car up to the hotel to drop bags off but must park in the car park. The car park/hotel are quite difficult to find at first, so it's wise to try to... More

We stayed two nights in Certaldo while attending Guiseppina's Cucina cooking class, and wanted to stay somewhere authentic in the old town. Albergo Il Castello is located just 20metres from the top of the funicular access to the old town. The owner was most helpful and friendly even driving us to the station when we left. The room was very... More

I think this hotel could really be made into a luxurious hotel, but it falls far short... More

A beautiful view across the Tuscan countryside with San Gimignano in the distance. There is a lovely garden to sit and relax or have your meals. The town is... More

Il Castello is a charming hotel in a Tuscan medieval hill town. Alfred pays attention to all the details that go into making this a truly pleasuable experience. There are three settings for dining: the garden, the terrace overlooking Certaldo and surrounding hills, and a beautifully appointed dining room. Breakfast is delightful with warm, just baked bread and other selections... More

We were married in Certaldo five years ago and held the reception in the beautiful courtyard of Il Castello, dancing round the fountain with our forty guests. We've just returned from a few days to celebrate our anniversary, staying in the hotel for the second year in a row. Alfred has been gradually renovating what were very tired and old-fashioned...

We were in Certaldo for a wedding and stayed at the hotel for two nights.We were warmly welcomed by Alfred and looked after during our stay by Francesca, who couldn't do enough to help everyone with their needs. Alfred put me in contact with a reliable local florist and Francesca served champagne to all the wedding guests after the ceremony.... More
