Ousmane, Massimo and Jorgen, thank you for one of the most memorable experiences we've ever had in our travels. Visiting Palazzo Brandano was like "coming home" to our own palace in a beautiful Tuscan village - and we can't wait to return! Everything from the rooms, to the grounds, to the glorious food, to the impeccable service - it was... More

The staff and hotel surpassed our expectations. That was actually hard to do after reading all of the glowing trip advisor recommendations. We expected this hotel to be the highlight of our two week Italian vacation, and it was. Upon arriving at the tiny town of Petroio we were warmly and graciously greeted by Ousmane. He moved us to the... More

What can we say? Palazzo Brandano made our honeymoon really very special. From helping us arrange transportation to the area when the Tuscan trains were on strike, to our departure days later, we were well taken care of by Osmonte, Massimo and Jurgen. It was a pleasant surprise when they upgraded us to an in-town apartment upon arrrival. The wine... More

I have traveled all over the world for work and pleasure and this is hands-down the best hotel I have stayed in. They combine all the finer things of the most lux hotels without the need to whisper. Warm, casual, but with style that is true to Tuscany. My favorite line is when I asked when breakfast was served and... More

Imagine finding a place so special that you would consider the staff friends instead of service providers… a place so incredible you find yourself dreaming about it weeks… even months after you returned home (my wife still wakes up in the morning and tells me of her nightly visits to Siena, which always include the Palazzo Brendano)… a place so...

We can only confirm the previous reviews: excellent welcome and a servicestandard full of efficiency and kindness. We reserved a stay of 5 nights but, due to unforeseen illness, had to cutshort our trip after the first night only. In fact, we were prepared to pay a cancellation fee due to the short notice cancellation of the remainder of our... More

It is hard to describe the experience of a stay at Palazzo Brandano as it really is something very special. My husband and I have had the experience of staying in many top class hotels around the world for business and pleasure but the level of personal service and attention here is second to none. The hotel is small and... More

We spent two nights at Palazzo Brandano in early April 2007 during a trip through Italy by train with our 13 year old son and 11 year old daughter. We learned of the hotel by searching the internet. My wife and I have stayed at many hotels for work and leisure over the years, but never before have we been... More

We spent three nights at the lovely Palazzo Brandano in July of 2006. The Palazzo is in the tiny village of Petroio. We were warmly welcomed by Ousmane, the hotel's manager, who looked after us during our entire stay. Our room was spacious, luxurious, immaculate and beautifully decorated. There were frescoes, terracotta floors, travertine tiles and wooden beams throughout the... More

I agree with several points previously mentioned. The hotel is beautiful, the service very personal, Osmone was very helpful and provided us with several extras to make our stay more enjoyable. The food was good and very nicely presented, although we only had breakfast. The things I wish I had known beforehand: the hotel is 1 hour from Siena and... More
