charming country style hotel at the gate of the beautiful old Montalcino. very nice views of the valley. had a swimming pool but was out of season. basically decorated rooms which were fine for short stay. has its own parking lot which is a great asset in small towns of Toscana.

Simple place with great service and superb elevated views from the room as the property sits on an edge of a hill. The room itself was clean and comfortable with a sizeable bathroom. Hotel is also well located close to few landmarks, restaurants and bars plus some great wine shops for purchases and wine tasting. Montalcino is a small quaint... More

we visited the Montacino area and stayed here. from booking the room 6 months prior to leaving it was suc a wonderful experience. the breakfast was personally prepared by the owners. Our Elegant view out our window was so romantic and incredible. It was what i exactly expected in a Italian small hotel.

This hotel is located on a hillside, offering breathtaking views from both the room AND the bath room. Lovely country feeling all over. We were there off season, so there was peace all around. Nice service.

This hotel was booked by our walking tour company as part of a week-long package so we didn't have direct visibility to the price. No matter, we would go back again regardless of the price; it was our favorite hotel on the trip. We were very happy to spend two nights there. The proprietor, Sandro, was very pleasant and accommodating.... More

Our trip was planned by Eva at Eviactive. The hotel was chosen for its location and indeed the position is a winner. The rooms need a bit of upgrade, though the breakfast buffet is still a delight. It was exactly what was promised. Great location, friendly staff, clean, and functional. If you want luxury, this isn't if. If you want... More

The hotel is centrally located; the first house on the right side when you enter the city. Free parking down a steep hill. Both the interior and the exterior are great. To have a coffee on the patio is something that is recommended. What a view!! We stayed in room 7. Excellent view and huge rooms. It was a bit... More

We had asked for a room with a view--after all it is a hill top walled city -- and our room did not disappoint. We had an excellent view to the north over vineyards and hills and distant chiesa's. The location is excellent with easy walking access to the central piazza, the fortezza and Duomo. Sandro, the owner, was present... More

I stayed here a couple weeks ago. Great location but for the E 150+ price they need to invest in beds and service. If you visit keep expectations low but location is prime. I urge the owner to invest in quality beds in their rooms - the one reason i wont come back.

I stayed here with six friends when we were on a walking trip organized by Girosole. The owner, Alessandro, was delightful and very helpful recommending restaurants and making reservations for us - his choices were excellent. The hotel itself was lovely - we all had large rooms with WiFi (no charge), nice bathrooms, and many had sofas as well. The... More
