“the true Tuscan experience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 26, 2012

Very nice small size hotel located between Siena and Firenze. Surrounded by medieval wall and towers, it offers the essence of traditional Tuscany. A nice please to get lost from the world and get a good book and enjoying reading with the view of the Tuscan hills. Nice restaurants nearby.

the place is so quite at this time of the year that you can really enjoy the silence

A boutique hotel in the most amazing setting. Views of Tuscany valleys including the town of Chianti. The management are fantastic and very helpful even giving touring recommendations. The managers daughter, Martina, even helped us with train bookings. Great breakfasts with amazing fresh pastries.
They have hundreds of TV channels but we did miss an English Channel. No CNN or BBC.
The showers are as small as you can get but the rooms are spacious.
There are a few restaurants in the Castello and you do not have to drive for dinner.

If you want to sample the idyllic dream of life in a medieval Tuscan village, a few days here are about as close as you can get without splashing out on a villa. You feel pretty special when you drive through the narrow gate into the town..just a little different to the tourists traipsing up the hill from the parking down below

The location is perfect for touring Sienna and the villages nearby.Try dinner in Scorgiana in the tiny cafe that spans the road at night. The hosts at the hotel are a local family with deep connections to the local wine industry.Take their advice on places to eat as they are well worth the drive.

Rooms are well equipped but would try to avoid the ones on the ground floor next to the road as passing walkers disturb your inevitable summer siesta!

Room Tip: Go for a room facing garden rather than street. Check that the medieval festival isn't on ( typi...

The hotel is in an historic building which dictates the size of the rooms. However, they are well appointed and the bathrooms were adequate - though the shower was a bit of a squeeze. Added bonus - there is a small pool which was a treat, set in a small but pretty garden where breakfast is served. Our room overlooked the street which was busy, but interesting as everyone was preparing for the Mediaeval festival that began the next day. Belongs now to a German chain - Romantik.

This hotel is in an amazing location in the center of Monteriggioni a tiny medieval town on the top of a small hill.

it is full of charme and it is worth to spend few days there. breakfast is good.

The swimmingpool is really small and the rooms are not generous in terms of sqm.

This is not a fancy hotel, but it is lovely and serene. The owner (Gigi) is a great host. It's a perfect spot from which to explore the Tuscan countryside.

This hotel sits right inside the walled citadel of Monteriggioni with its own parking and charming outdoor area with small pool and breakfast space which was always beautifully set. The entry area is very nicely decorated.The garden was also a good place to catch the late afternoon sun and have a glass of wine.
It is a lovely place to stay a couple of days and use as a base to explore the local area. The village gets very busy during the day but is peaceful to return to for an evening meal in the nearby piazza.
Our room was small but attractive and had a lovely view to the west but sounds from adjoining rooms intruded. The owners daughter is particularly helpful with good English.
Make sure you have clear directions after leaving the motorway as there are no signs due to local rules. Drive up and through the main gateway and across the piazza to the hotel.
