“Promising but disappointing....”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2012

We stayed in this hotel for two nights in July 2012. The external appearance was outstanding because the infrastructure is definetely big, very well finished, well placed within Chianciano (remind that if you like to walk into the town you should be prepared to "climb" back to the hotel because it is at the end of a very steep slope) and full of common space available. The hotel is in a very calm area, ideal for relax and has a nice and clean swimming pool.
Unfortunately the room was not exactly what we were expecting because although it was generally clean had hidden dust in almost every small corner or space, a too small bathroom, a TV set not properly working and the air conditioner broken (of some notice that I was ensured on the phone some days before my arrival that the air conditioner was up and running); the furniture of the room had some clear usury signs, windows were old and with broken locks, it was almost impossible to have a mild shower because it jumped from hot to ice in a sec, the refrigerator was empty and broken.
On the other hand, the bed was perfect with a big and comfortable mattress.
We had only one dinner in the hotel because it was included in the coupon we bought and I have to say that it was very good, good food and outstanding service in a beautiful location. On the other side, breakfast has been horrible and to be honest I have never seen something like that
The location is dirty, a prehistoric coffee machine was available, I have seen spiders on the walls, creased table clothes and tasted dry and unflavoured croissants, discount yougurt and industrial biscuits; Cups for cereals were not clean and cutlery was very old and scratched. No service or waiters were available.

If you have seen any bad reviews then ignore it totally. I had a wonderful stay and thoroughly recommend this delightful hotel. The staff was wonderful and very helpfull.The room wasn't really big, but there was enough room to move around. Towels were changed every day.
The food is excellent and plentiful.
Located in a quiet part of town.The location was perfect if you want to visit Florence or Siena, since this resort town is usually a good start to explore Tuscany.

Posta is a hotel that changed owner lately. Since that moment the structure is falling. If you go there with a pullman full of old people it will be heaven on earth, but if you are younger it will be horror. Masses of old people waking up at 7 o'clock making noise... The stuff cares only about this groups, not about the single travellers. The breakfast will be served as and when they think, you have to stay there together with the groups of the pullman. Lucky if you find a seat. You get a kind of capuccino with "malt"-coffee. the real italian coffee you have to buy in the hotelbar, it is not included in the breakfast. You get only 1 kind of marmelade and a half frozen croissant, but only one! The pool outside is full of sand and dirty.
