Its true, having just spent three nights in the hotel Francesco, my only real comment is that it was cheap and cheerful, not cheap as in grotty, but simply reasonable, based upon two things location and location, otherwise, to give a recital on the merits of the actual accommodation would be unkind, but if you want to know, the entrance is not inviting, other than its on the main street afew minutes walk from the tower, and good restaurants, enter and you will be met with a smile, by a very attentive receptionist, cramped and a little uncomfortable if others are waiting to be checked in. So the room, travel lodge size, basic with a not so comfortable bed, two beds actually joined together to make a double, great for perfecting the sleep on your back straight method, this bed does not allow much flexibility or rolling around restlessly, the view is the street, and that is not so pretty, the shower well it sprayed, the terrace limited and the facilities again limited. All in all for 80 euros a night what could one expect, so my advice, get up early, get out and enjoy the sites, get in late and drink enough to soften the impact of a rather cramped bed, the sleep and he drink anaesthetises the body to a degree of acceptability, would I return no, I will next time make my booking in advance, and choose more selectively, this was to be a starting point to see Andrea Bocelli in Lajatico, and to be honest that is all it is there are much better hotels this town. Sorry, across the road 15 yards away the hotel duomo is a good example. Enjoy
