“doesn't worth to spend money”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 30, 2011

Hi,
we stayed for 5 night at Hotel Tavolesse, which is recorded for 4 stars when you book and pay but there you see that the hotel has only 3 stars. this is not very important aspect if you do not consider the dust from the rooms and the "hospitality" of the people.
when we arrived there and complain about the rooms (the curtains and carpets were not cleaned for years) we were invited to look or another hotel, if we do not like. "nobody forces you to stay here if you do not like" were the words of the owner (!!!!) of the pace.
even if the view is nice, and the place is very quiet, our friend alergic to dust has problems with it.
the towels were ok, they were clean and changed every day, but it is too less in comaprison with the rest.
the rooms are very big, but in some rooms the floor has some greasy spots.
the smell of the rooms are in the same line with the cleaning.
the breakfast consists of only things packed and again the personnel is very unfriendly,
for example your're not allowed to keep your plate on the buffet when you put something on it, (I never saw something like this in my entire life), so they take it and put it on another table, and you need to make a lot of ways to fill it with what you need.
the value price-quality for sure does not worth!
I wouldn't do it again!

4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2010

We came from Israel for 9 days in Italy, spent half of it in Tuscany, all 4 nights in this hotel. Lovely Villa, spectacular view from rooms in upper floor. nice staff, speak good english, gay friendly. The price for one night is a bit high but if you stay 4 nights you get the last night for free which makes it a good deal. Breakfast included but it is not a catch. good location between San Gimingano and Firenze.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2010

Villa Tavolese is in a lovely setting, high in the Tuscan hills with fantastic views.We had a very spacious room that overlooked the surrounding area for miles. Large bathroom with a seperate shower cubicle. The hotel has 16 bedrooms, but during our 5 day stay, there were not many other clients, hence we had the pool to ourselves. It is centrally located and Siena, Volterra, San Gimignano, and Florence are all within easy reach. There are 2 restarants in the village but we drove to Barberino val d'elsa, ten minutes away and ate in a couple of restaurants there which were good. Whilst the hotel has a restaurant, it was not open for dinner during our stay. We were never given a reason. Breakfast is basically Continental and self service.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 7, 2006

it is a 3* hotel but in fact rather 4*. the room was airy, nice deco, incl. jacuzzi and shower. nice, remote location in a village but the best place to reach florence, san gimignano, sienna with 45 mins. breakfast was average, service was below average.
nice swimming pool, stunning view in the tuscan landscape.
good deal. the english of the family run hotel stuff is above the italian average

  • Liked — view, room quality, not an int' hotel
  • Disliked — other facilities
