Palazzo di Valli is not a modern hotel, but it is a hotel in an old 14th century house. That being said it was great. Great views, nice clean rooms and a very helpful staff. They suggested restaurants and even helped us route out a trip through the Chianti region in our rental car. Lorenzo and his staff were unbelievable. Breakfast was perfect. We asked Lorenzo if he were going out to eat where he would go and he suggested 4 or 5 restaurants. We went to one of them twice it was so good. We were there for 4 nights and he suggested where to park when we took a day trip to Florence which worked out great. We were there for our anniversary and our kids emailed him to arrange a fruit baskent and cake and Proseco for our anniversary. We got back from one of our day trips and we were surprised with a huge fruit basket some of it frome their own fruit trees and an awesome cake. The next afternoon after returning from Chianti we asked if we could have a wine bottle opener and glasses. They opened the bottle of wine and brought it out to us with a couple of wine glasses and a bowl of nuts. Very accomodating and a wealth of information. If your looking for a 5 star hotel accomodation wise, this is probably not the place for you, but the charm of the rooms was irreplaceable. We loved it and when we get back to Tuscany we will stay here again. Well done Lorenzo and pass our thanks on to your staff, everyone was wonderful.
