Hotel Vecchia Oliviera is a fine hotel with an excellent and attentive staff. The room was clean and comfortable - exactly what you need. The breakfast was fine and perfect for our needs. The location at the edge of the town allowed us to easily explore the area and get lost in a pleasant manner. The views of the Tuscan... More

Staff were excelelnt, breakfast was very good, the cappuccino was perfect each morning, our room was very large with huge ensuite by European standards, view of the valley, no.7 i believe. Beds need better mattresses

We are overwhelmed with our stay. The extra euros for the top rooms are well worth it. Great view and charming interior. The staff is very helpful and Sandro (the owner) made our stay memorable with great recommendations for restaurants and nightlife. Jonathan & Tone

Located right at the entrance to Montalcino basically. Easy walking to everything in the town. Very close to the self-service laundry which was extremely handy. Having their own parking lot is another plus. Only issue we had is that we drove right by it initially and trying to get back to the hotel was a chore as trying to navigate... More

We stayed at the Hotel Vecchia Oliviera for three nights and found it enchanting --- warm, welcoming staff, quiet rooms, good breakfast and a gorgeous view. It's right at the top of the hill, steps from the main street through town.

A great hotel at the entrance of this very hilly town of Montalcino. Rooms range from simple to deluxe. Simple rooms are small while the deluxe face the valley of the Val D'Orica and are of ample size. Breakfasts are wholesome and plentiful. This is a great base and good value for the money.

This is my first time in Montalcino and Hotel Vecchia Oliviera. I'm only here one night but so far it's charming and a very authentic Tuscan hotel. The staff have been warm and inviting and although there is no elevator, at least none I could see, my luggage was carried to my room. I have a larger corner rooms with... More

This is a lovely place, with a great breakfast and a pool! Sandro was a fantastic host, he was extremely charming and helpful. The hotel is very clean with good sized rooms and is in a perfect location - nice and quiet at night but close enough to walk everywhere you want to go. We definitely want to stay here... More

I spent five nights at VO and had a great time. Something about this little hotel blends well into the fabric of Montalcino and the surrounding valleys - it isn't super fancy but it has a great sense of authenticity. Sandro and Elisa were both gracious and welcoming, even through the booking process, and were willing to answer all of... More
