“Memories in Montepulciano”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 3, 2012

When planning our stay in Italy we knew we were going to spend at least 5 days in Tuscany. After making a list of the hill towns that we wanted to visit, reading countless reviews, and watching some Rick Steves, we made the right choice and booked 5 days at iL Riccio.
The hospitality was the best. The rustic charm and most amazing views from the roof top patio were memories we will keep for a lifetime.

If you read nothing else in this review, just know that you'd be making a huge mistake not staying here...First of all, Montepulciano and the surrounding area are amazing. I'm hesitant to even write this review because I don't want a million people to ruin this perfect town and hotel. When we arrived at the hotel, which was originally built in 1218 and has been immaculately restored, my wife and I were in awe. When Gio said, "Welcome to my home" as we walked in the door, my wife was almost choking up because she was so taken aback with it all. I was about to cry as well because I began to think I missed an extra zero in the price. The breakfasts were great, especially the cappuccini. The view from our balcony was unbelievable and hearing the cacophony of churchbells ring through the windows throughout the day was very cool. I would not change a thing about this hotel. The price, the location, the hosts, the food, views, the history, and the room were absolutely perfect. Off all the places we stayed on our trip throughout Switzerland and Italy, this was our favorite.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a balcony, it's worth it.

A great place to stay with good breakfast, convenient car park, comfortable rooms, wonderful roof top terrace and GREAT HOST! The freshly made muffins and tarts in the morning are worth getting up for. It is a family run hotel with great service. You can not find a better hotel in Montepulciano.

All the wonderful reviews are true, this place has old world charm and is located right next to Piazza Grande. Why would you stay anywhere else?

My husband and I were on our honeymoon and made several stops throughout Italy. Montepulciano as a town, and il Riccio were our absolute favorites from the trip and we are already talking about when we can go back. We did not rent a car since we stayed 4 nights and found a driver for 2 days when we wanted to travel out of the town to wineries in Montepulcian and Florence. The only con is the expensive taxi ride from the Chiusi train station (40-50 euros), it is cheaper from Montepulciano train station if you're going in that direction (~25 euros).

Gio and Ivanna greeted us and even gave us some leftovers of breakfast (she makes all the tarts herself and they are DELICIOUS) and coffee since we had been traveling since early in the morning and hadn't eaten. They are so helpful and made us dinner reservations everynight and directions (make reservations to all the restaurants early, they fill up fast!!)

We stayed in the Superior Room on the 1st floor with GORGEOUS views over the valley. It is definitely worth it to get a room with a view here, it is absolutely breathtaking. I read that rooms on the 1st floor are renovated, I can't speak for the upstairs rooms but ours was definitely updated very recently. It was spacious and clean, with a fairly large sized bathroom for European standards. There is also wifi in every room. We had originally wanted a balcony, but they weren't available (and we booked months in advance), but lucikly the hotel has a rooftop with tables that were lovely to sit at and drink wine and eat cheese, while getting to meet some of the other hotel guests. While we loved walking around the town and visiting wineries, we really enjoyed just sitting in our room overlooking the views or drinking wine on the roof. It was such a peaceful and beautiful place to stay.

Definitely recommend staying here, its a relaxing and charming place that's worth all of the good reviews it's gotten.

Room Tip: Superior room with a view of the valley or balcony if you're splurging

We recently stayed at Meuble il Riccio for our honeymoon. Simona, one of the owners, was amazingly helpful and kind throughout our stay. When we were shown to our room, we were amazed at the view. They have under 10 rooms in the entire property, but you are close to many of the restaurants and attractions Montepulciano has to offer.

Driving around the town can be tough, but they offer you a parking permit a couple hundred feet away from the hotel. Try to pack light if you drive in, wheeling your luggage down cobblestone streets is tough!

I cannot speak highly enough of the il Riccio. The charm, the cleanliness, the hospitality was all exceptional! Montepuluciano is the most beautiful of all the hill towns and the il Riccio sits atop the hill. The view from our window was lovely but it was breathtaking from the roof top terrace. Room size was what to be expected in Italy and very comfortable. They Gio and Ivanah go out of their way to make your experience a great one., very warm people; One morning I asked about music and he cranked up the old phonograph with a record that belonged to his grandfather - I loved it! Another evening we returned with wine we purchased and they gave us an opener and wine glasses so we could enjoy it on the rooftop. Whiile they do charge for breakfast, it is worth it. Very tasty not to mention convenient. Italy is not cheap and you wouldn't be able to purchase a breakfast for that amount at the restaurant (coffee alone!). Given the reasonable price of the rooms - breakfast is a real deal. Yes, the bigger ones give it for free but it is not nearly as good or cozy. They have the rooftop as well as an atrium and sitting area in the main room. Rustic and authentic furnishings. We had difficulty finding the hotel at first but that was our fault for not having a good map and a gps does not work in any hill town.

Love il Riccio and cannot see how anyone could not! Gracia to our host and hostess!!

Room Tip: request a room with a view but keep in mind there will be a series of steps.

Right off the main piazza at the very top of this hilltop wine-town, the Mueble il Riccio is definitely a "find". Our Superior Room had a balcony with a stunning view over the tile rooftops of Montepulciano and the Tuscan countryside. Very comfortable, well-appointed room. Quiet. The common-room where breakfast is served feels like the main room of an old villa. It is a very open, airy room, with natural lighting. Homemade breakfast pastries baked by hostess Ivana are delicious! The host couple live on-site, and this is very apparent from the care and professionalism with which they run their small inn. Gio welcomes guests to "my home" on arrival. He and Ivana obviously take great pride in their establishment and making their guests feel comfortable and "at-home".
A highlight of our stay was a picnic lunch on our balcony, complete with the famous local Vino Nobile wine.

Room Tip: spring for a "Superior". View is worth it.
