Friends suggested we stay here on our first trip to Tuscany and are we ever happy we did. We had a lovely room over looking Tuscan scenery You dream about in a beautiful Inn complete with pool. Sandro and the staff were wonderful,even setting up breakfast early for us as we had an early morning departure for Pisa. Charming and... More

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

Nicely located, a short walk to the centre of Montalcino. Rooms are comfortable and some have a good view over the countryside.The breakfast was quite good and you can ask for as many cappuccinos as you like. Front desk staff were very helpful and provided some good restaurant suggestions. They have a couple of nice patios on which you can... More

This charming hotel is just outside the city entrance of Montalcino . The views are to die for and the hotel owner was gracious and helpful. The rooms were decorated beautifully, the bath was large and they even had Kleenex - which we had not found in any of the other places we had stayed in Italy! The morning breakfast... More

We booked this online having read all of the reviews on Tripadvisor. €190 per night seemed high to me and I regularly stay in London for £130-140 in 4 star hotels. That said it is a good location and we did book a grand deluxe room. Parking is handy down a steep drive at the side of the hotel behind... More
