We originally wanted to stay here only one night, but we spontaniously decided to extend our stay to two nights.
The hotel is very nice, when we arrived the man from the reception met us outside at our car with two umbrellas, which was a much nicer welcome than what we had recieved the last days.
The rooms are alright, they do have a bit of a hostel-feeling to them, but it's very clean and the bed was very comfortable. The bathroom had shampoo, soap and other toiletries that we needed.
However, the best thing about the hotel is the younger man at the reception desk. He gave us spot on information regarding where to eat and drink in Volterra, stearing us clear of all tourist traps and recommending a great wine bar!
Walking to Volterra takes about 10 Minutes, though the walk is quite a steep uphill climb. The breakfast was great and the selection was very large, though it too was an Italian breakfast.
We would recommend this place to anyone looking for an inexpensive and comfortable hotel.
