This was a wonderful place to stay while in Tuscany. Castellina in Chianti is a very cute town and I loved staying right in the town. It was so convenient to be able to walk to dinner at the cute restaurants in Castellina.
Our room was large and comfortable. We had an amazing view (see photo). The room was quiet and had a sitting area with sofa. There was a shower and bidette the room - no bathtub. My only criticism would be that we had no wifi service in the room, but there was wifi right down the hall, in the breakfast room and lounge.
The breakfast was good. If you want a fancy cup of coffee, ask the person who is taking care of the breakfast - she will go get a cup of cappuccino from the coffee bar on the first floor for you.
The coffee room and bar on the first floor offers the opportunity to have a drink, which you should take out onto the balcony to enjoy the views.
There is a spa on the first floor with jetted tubs, saunas and relaxation beds. It was very nice and relaxing - find an hour or two to treat yourself to some relaxation before dinner.
The check-in was easy. Finding the parking is a little confusing - so just send someone in your group in to get the directions, and then it's pretty clear what you will need to do.
Again, the location of this hotel is the biggest plus. I would highly recommend staying here. This hotel is a little more pricey than I usually pay, but I would probably splurge on it if I travel to this area again - it's worth it.
