A great 3 star hotel and excellent value for money. The room was large, great bathroom, and the entire place was spotless. After travelling around Umbria and Tuscany for 10 days and staying in over 6 hotels, Hotel Sole was by far the best hotel I stayed in.
As other reviews say, it is located outside the 'walls' of Volterra, but is only a 10 minute walk, or a 5 minute drive.
Francesco offered me a coffee (Illy of course) as soon as I arrived, so it had a very homely feel from the time I walked in. The bed was very comfortable, room was warm, shower pressure was good, towels were huge and the room was tastefully decorated. There was free wifi available in the rooms as well as cable television.
The breakfast was excellent - a selection of pastries, doughnuts, fresh fruit, bread, ham cheese, yoghurt, fresh juice,cereal and coffee to order. When I was making the reservation, Francesco also advised me of a cheaper deal if I used booking.com website as opposed to booking direct through him - which I was grateful for.
I would stay here again and definitely recommend to fellow travellers.
