I have mixed feelings about leaving a review for someplace that I would like to remain a secret, but here it goes anyway... Sorano is an "out of the way" town. That's part of what makes it wonderful. The place just oozes history and charm. It's what I hoped to find during our recent honeymoon to central Italy. If you... More

We stayed one night at this impressive hotel. the opportunity of staying at a converted fortress won us over. The room was, as with all we stayed at in Italy, quite charming and adequate, but, BE AWARE...this hotel does NOT offer air-conditioning....and in July there is not always a comfortable drop in temperature at night, so open windows are a...

This hotel was a stop in our bike trip from Rome to Livorno. Sorano is a really beautiful place (but not many tourists), and this hotel is situated in a part of the castle on top of it. Thus it really has atmosphere. It was also quite. Internet was only working in the reception area, but it was working. We... More

We stayed one night in the Hotel della Fortezza in July 2012. Had some problem finding parking, as there was some construction underway, and the road sign was misleading. Other than that, the experience was extremely good. The room had a breathtaking view over deep canyon and medieval village. The room was clean and had a nice size for 2... More

A recent change in management at La Fortezza has made a VAST improvement and restored the character, service and beauty that this incredible structure deserves. Brava Patrizia!

Staying at the castle was a highlight of our trip, a break from the average tourist sites and a magical experience I would recommend. The hosts were exceptionally and willing to go out of their way to ensure comfort and satisfaction. English spoken. The room was the normal small size for italy, but clean, with an amazing view and the... More

My wife and I stayed for one night during a recent Tuscan tour and our night at the Hotel Fortezza was one of the highlights of the trip. The room was amazing, giving you a real feel of staying in a old castle but still being clean and with modern bathroom facilities. The owner was very welcoming and helpful and... More

An experience not too be missed staying in a castle dated back to the 1,100 AD. The hotel inside is presented very well. We were situated on the 2nd level. Even though our room was compact it had a good size firm bed with separate bathroom facilities, on a landing above our bedroom. Not much space to put your suitcases... More

Beautiful views from the room, our room was very clean and nice. The village of Sorano is unspoiled and you will find only a few tourists here, and NO souvenir shops! We did find 2 antique shops, and several nice restaurants. The hotel manager was warm and friendly and made us feel at home. Breakfast was served on the fortress... More
