This is a charming, lovely hotel, perfectly situated in the heart of the old town and within walking distance of everything. The rooms are comfortable, with beautiful views, overlooking the Tuscan hillsides. The hotel offers an adequate breakfast with tasty cappuccino and easy, onsite parking. The manger at the front desk was super helpful with recommendations for restaurants. We would... More

Perfectly located, hotel Vecchio Oliviera was welcoming and extremely convenient. The owner was so welcoming and easy going. Rooms are a little sparse, but clean and airy, with good air conditioning. Views from the back overlooking the valleys of Montalcino are nothing short of spectacular, particularly first thing in the morning when the mists are still settled. Beds are a... More

Views from the rooms, pool and balcony are stunning, picture postcard typical and really breath taking. The position, literally at the gates of the town is fantastic, so lovely to stroll in for a drink or dinner. The free parking at the hotel is a great bonus, but drop your bags off at the hotel first! The staff are helpful... More

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
