This hotel is absolutely stunning and we had a fantastic room. The pools are great too they are nice and cool to dip into after a bit of sun. The setting is so gorgeous and typically Tuscan, really breathtaking. The staff at reception we found quite hostile, the prestige of the hotel is obviously important to them but they came... More

This lovely hotel is in a peaceful and beautiful Tuscan setting. We had a wonderful time, though slightly disappointed with some aspects. Our room, which faced the main courtyard, was small and dark. However, you have to expect this from what is an old converted monastery. Overlooking the courtyard did have its draw backs as we were woken early most... More

The hotel is an old castle in a very pleasant region near Castelnuovo Berardegna. Siena is just a few miles away, so access to the Chianti region is very straightforward. The Contrada restaurant has the best Rum Baba I have ever had and Alessandra (responsible for the restaurant) provides great quality service. The swimming pool and the SPA ara amazing... More

This hotel is perfect for those looking for a relaxing vacation surrounded by beautiful scenery. I stayed for 4 nights in April with my sister and we enjoyed every moment of our stay. The rooms strike the right balance between modern and historic. Beautiful Tuscan landscapes can be seen from pretty much any part of the hotel and the staff... More

We arrived at Castel Monastero to spend three nights there and were overwhelmed by the beauty of it. Our rooms were spacious and lovely, the staff was welcoming and the day was sunny and beautiful. We used the spa on Saturday for massages for the four of us and took advantage of the salt water pool and the whirlpool -... More

Pros: - Amazing views - Beautifully furnished rooms - Exceptional pool & spa - Delicious restaurant (in an old wine cellar) - Hotel manager was amazing Cons: - some of... More

What can be said about driving thru the mountain side in Tuscany but to come upon and stay here. What a magnificent Castel/hotel. From the room the spa the surrounding are just breath taking. My fondest memory was the sky that was so blue, a blue I never had seen. The Castel added to the mystic which is Tuscany. The... More
