This is one of the best small hotels in Italy I have stayed in. The other comments are correct in their views of the place, the location and the staff. We stayed in one of the "economy" stable rooms (401). This was spacious with plenty of storage and a generous shower room. There was a large walk-in shower, toilet, bidet and large sink unit with a well-lit mirror. The air conditioning worked a treat.
The staff were always friendly and helpful - most unlike Italian hotels!! A little bit of patience was required at breakfast but the food was excellent with lots of cakes, fruit, bread, cornetti and freshly made proper strong coffee.
The hotel is right in the middle of the small quiet town just a couple of hundred metres from the piazza. It was directly opposite the main spa complex where we enjoyed a couple of well priced treatments. The park beside the spa had events on each of the 5 evenings we were there.
There are only a few restaurants but more than enough for a short stay. Our favourite was a spaghetteria called Il Cipo - great simple and very cheap pasta dishes for just a few euros.
The surrounding countryside is full of rolling hills and hairpin bends and delightful to witness. Be bold and go for a drive and explore the small local towns and hamlets. Volterra is well worth seeing but be careful not to park in a resident's only car park which cost us a 41 euro fine! We visited Sienna on the way there and it is excellent.
I would highly recommend this hotel and would love to return.
