This is definitely not a five-star hotel, but we had a five-star experience and would gladly return to the Hotel Baia di Talamone. Talamone is a bit off the beaten track - a small, harbor town with a few decent restaurants, some gelato shops (find the one off of the main street, hidden up one of the side streets - YUM!), a few bars and lots of local atmosphere.
We were warmly welcomed at the hotel and were given directions to park, when breakfast was, etc... and then shown to our room. Large, bright, clean and with a wonderful balcony looking over the harbor. The staff was incredibly friendly and very helpful.
Room: The room is not really modern or fancily furnished, but everything was very clean. We had a large bathroom (small shower stall), great ginger shampoo/soaps, mini-bar, flat screen tv, king bed (very comfortable), air conditioning, and, of course, the balcony with chairs, table and drying rack for clothes/swimsuits. NOTE: There is no wi-fi reception (maybe an internet computer, but we didn't ask). We found a little bar (go out to the right and it is just past the bar/gelato shop with the blue umbrellas) that had a wifi hotspot and reasonably priced drinks.
Location: We used the hotel as a base for driving into the surrounding villages (Pitigliano, Saturnia, Sorano, etc) and the Tarot Garden Sculpture Park near Capalbio. Not sure about the beach access. We loved the location!
Breakfast: Typical - bread, meat, cheese, yogurt, cereal, coffee, fruit, etc... Very filling.
Staff: Delightful and very helpful.
Bottom line: Loved Talamone and would stay again if given the chance.
