We travelled to this hotel in the middle of our winter road trip around central Europe. We stayed one night.
The hotel is not as close to Montepulciano as we expected, (maybe about 5km or so) though this wasn't a major problem for us as we had a car. Others that are thinking they could walk to town, will have a long trek ahead of them.
The hotel is rated three star, but it's really a 2.5 star at best. Everything is maintained to an adequate level, but things are just old, and in reality the whole complex is due for an update. Decor, bathrooms, beds and public areas all look like they have come out of the seventies. (1970's)
We actually paid as much at this hotel as our 4 star hotel in Rome which I rated quite highly on TA. I guess considering that it is a much sort after location, they can get away with a lower level of amenities etc. at a higher cost than could have been achieved in other parts of the country.
However, knowing this, you could have a fairly enjoyable stay. The hosts are a very nice Italian family, so the whole place has a bit of a homely (and slightly retro)(I wish I had taken some photo's) feel about it. They are more than welcoming, and are happy to answer questions, and have plenty of suggestions of what to see and do around the area.
The breakfast was a typical Italian fare, and the thing I really like about almost all Italian accommodation, is the easy access to great expresso. Defiantly a good way to start the day.
Internet was free of charge, and easy to access with a login code supplied at reception.
One little note to drivers approaching the property from the Montepulciano direction. The hotel is on a fairly tight corner, and the entrance can be easily missed, especially in the dark. Like wise, care should be taken when leaving the property as vehicles can appear around the blind corner quite quickly.
If we where to stay in the area again, we would possibly look for something closer or even in town, but if that wasn't available, we would have no problem staying here again. I would even take some photo's of the decor next time.
