We have stayed in several hotels in Italy and this was one of the best. If you have traveled in Italy you will know how small the showers are, well you will enjoy this one with enough room for two. The internal decor of the hallway is mediocre, but the rooms are very pretty. The price was very reasonable and... More

Our room was large, clean and had a beautiful view of the old town. Breakfast included a variety of pastries, cold cuts, cheese, yogurt, cereal and fruit. It was more than adequate. A personal cup of cappuccino was prepared each morning upon request. A lovely touch. The hotel's location, makes day trips to the surrounding areas very convenient. Siena, Greve... More

Stayed here one night during a walking tour. Nice staff, basic room, good breakfast. Only complaint would be the room had a strong scent of an air freshener which was a little strong. Quiet, nice location.

We arrived at the side of the hotel as the directions dictated. When we got round the front it looked closed, some of the paving slabs were loose but it was very central. The bike lock up was then all the way round the other side, down a steep ramp, into the dark garage to locate the garage door. Careful... More

In Colle Val d'Elsa in Tuscani they have one of the best hotel. It's cheap and very clean. The town is very local without "tourist". Location of the hotel is perfect for Florence, Siena and Pisa. Don't forget to go to the local Ristorante Pizzeria La Venezia. Go down to Piazza Arnolfo di Cambio and have some italien ice. There... More

Our one night stay was very good. A modern hotel in the lower town, well situated for shopping etc. And a short walk from the lift to the upper ( old ) part of town, if one is disinclined to walk up there. Comfortable room, good breakfast buffet and very pleasant staff.

Very friendly and helpful staff here. Room very basic but ok for one night/short visit. Decent enough breakfast. Hotel is in lower town, the upper town (alto) is accessible via an elevator and is worth a visit.
