Montalcino is one of the most picturesque countryside cities in Tuscany and the Rifugio was a perfect place to stay. Located in the center of the city, you can walk to local restaurants and shops- or even eat the restaurant thats part of the hotel - order the pici pasta!!! The rooms are large! They all have small kitchens if... More

a lovely location, but the restaurant for breakfast is too far away and make sure you get an up to date phone to ring if there is a problem, as there are no staff on duty at the B & B and the phone numbers on the business card are out of date!

I went to Montalcino and chose this B&B because of it's location. Right in front of the fortress, close to restaurants and to some wineries. The owner, Claudia, is very friendly and invites you to enjoy her restaurant and to take a tour thru her family's winery. Exceptional wines, great food and brethtaking views.

The location was perfect and we took advantage of the free tour of the Padaletti wine cellars (within the town walls) and 10% off dinner at their local restaurant. Room was small, door didn't fit the frame, bed was squeaky, bathroom small and shower stall very small. But, considering the location, the price was right. Slight inconvenience going to another...

The position is the best: just in front of the Fortezza, 50 meters from it! The building is old, well restructured, with small rooms and functioning services, cool during a hot August, with no mosquitos (probably for the high and windy site). In addition, it is relatively cheap: 60 € per night for one person. Unfortunately the owners are a... More

The location of this hotel is very good right opposite to the fortezza and the main shopping streets and restaurants. We had a nice and cosy double room with a tiled ceiling, wooden furniture, a french balconette and a big and clean bathroom. The hostess was welcoming and she helped us book a wine tour. There was no hair dryier... More

Although we made our reservations 6 months in advance, we were unable to book several choices ahead of this hotel. The location is good - right across the street from La Fortezza and in walking distance to many restaurants and enotecas. The room, a triple, was nice and the bed was very comfortable. Before we arrived, the hotel staff arranged... More
