We stayed here three days in September (Room 1). Room 1 is on the first floor (2nd floor if you're North American) and is large and faces the front (very little street noise as it's primarily pedestrian-only). Nice room, very clean, good mattress, very decent bathroom. Everything seemed newly done. Simone was very helpful, as were the others in the... More

Simone was a great host, and was very helpful making reservations and recommendations. The room was simple, great for the price. Location was nice, with a view of the fort and a 5 minute walk to city center. Very European (i.e. small) shower and the bed wasn't overly comfortable, but we would stay there again regardless.

We stayed 6 nights in the apartment on the top floor of Il Barlanzone. What a wonderful way to enjoy all that Montalcino, and the rest of this area of Tuscany, has to offer. Having such an outdoor space such as the terrace this apartment provides adds so much more than a room in any hotel. Having the extra space... More

Simone the owner is a great host. Prior to our arrival to Montalcino we communicated via email and since it was low season we arranged to meet at his hotel by 5pm. He was there on time. Showed us the parking lot which is conveniently located (half a block from the property) and gave us really good suggestions on places... More

We booked a double room and it was only around 80 euros including free parking so that was great. The room was basic, we found the beds too soft but that's just our taste. The room and bathroom were clean but the pressure in the bathroom was quite poor. There isn't a check in as such since the rooms are... More

My wife and I were in Montalcino last week end to attend our dear friends' wedding (in gorgeous Castello Banfi). We stayed two nights at a small apartment part of Il Barlanzone. The main building is right opposite the Fortress in Montalcino. We stayed just outside the city walls in a very charming flat (living room / kitchen, bedroom and... More

This town is like a picture out of a story book and it is the home of great Brunello wines. II Barlanzone is perfectly located, free easy parking and a rustic room that suits the town, no brass and glass here. The room is large, great shower, nice linens and very clean. Loved the antique furnishings. Staff were very helpful... More

Okay, in Tuscany Region, the shower was larger than all others during our trip that were at larger and more expensive locations. The room was clean and comfortable! Great location to walk to many attractions, shopping and food! Oh, yah, wine too! We plan to return to the area next year and will stay here again!

This hotel is perfect in case you need one or just a few nights. If you are staying here longer you may want to opt for the top floor apartment. The rooms are super clean and exactly what you need for a short stay. Be mindful that it is at the very top of the hill in Montalcino so everything... More
