“A perfect base for exploring and a lovely hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 5, 2012 via mobile

We spent a long weekend here and loved it. We didn't spend a great deal of time in the hotel but the room was great, clean and quite luxurious. The hotel looks lovely and interesting and the staff were super helpful in giving us advice on where to go etc. we only ate breakfast at the hotel and it was very tasty. The only slight disappointment was the pool was not open. It was early season but happened to be very warm and a dip would have been nice. It looked beautiful though.

The surrounding areas is amazing and a car is an absolute must to get around. We we to lots of places, including Florence, monteriggione, San gimignano, castella in chianti, radda in chianti, Siena. All well worth a visit.

We absolutely loved this hotel which not only had a beautiful pool (with bar service), great rooms and fantastic service but it is located in a tiny town on a hill overlooking Tuscan surroundings. Everything in this hotel is perfect, the staff is welcoming and extremely helpful, the area is peaceful and gorgeous, what else could you ask for. For those of you who do choose to stay there, when you decide to leave poolside to break for lunch, simply walk down the street to the "convenience store" to enjoy some of the best pizza ever, homemade, simple, delicious. One tip though, if you are looking for an area with alot of action or nighttime attractions, i'd choose elsewhere, this is for relaxation and beauty. Enjoy!

We will most definitely be making a trip back to Tuscany JUST to stay at this hotel. The staff were outstanding ... so VERY warm and welcome. We were put in the new section of the hotel (still being built in fact as we were the only ones on our floor and there was drywall dust around in the hallways, but it truly didn't matter!) The accommodations were absolutely LOVELY. The pool was immaculately clean. The meals fantastic. Again, the staff ... just can't say enough about them. It was difficult to leave. The countryside is beautiful. Loved walking around the very OLD town... so very quaint and picturesque. We'll definitely be back!

Room Tip: Ask to stay in the new section.

Last Christmas I received a coffee table book on beautiful Tuscan towns. I selected Mannaioni as one of the towns I would visit during my recent two week stay. I searched Trip Advisor to see if anyone had stayed in the town. One of the contributors wrote a great review of the Mannaioni. I gave the name of the hotel to my travel agent, Approved Travel in Colonia, NJ and they made all the arrangements through a company in Boston, Bella Vista Tours.

I can't even begin to describe what a wonderful experience we had. The hotel sits within the walls of a very small town. We were greeted by the Manager, who speaks excellent English, with a very warm and welcoming demeanor. He upgraded our room to a suite, which had a balcony with a beautiful view of the Tuscan hills. The restaurant was outstanding, both for dinner and breakfast (breakfast was included with the room). The property itself is clean and beautifully decorated. They've anticipated every traveller's needs and your safety and comfort is guaranteed. The bar is comfortable and relaxing and they provide "munchies" to go along with your drinks.

The location of the town is also excellent. From there, it's less than a 30 minute very well marked ride to San Gimignano, one of the most outstanding tourist sites in Italy. I highly recommened this hotel.

Room Tip: Get the two floor suite. Comfortable reading and relaxation area with a gorgeous view

We recently stayed for a weekend in the Palazzo Mannaioni which we booked through Voyage Prive.
Firstly I should state that Montaione is a small 16th Century town on a hill which overlooks the amazing Tuscan surroundings. The views really are amazing but car hire is highly advisable for a stay here. I noticed that there are bus routes although from our experience, any places of local interest were a good 30 mins drive away.

Upon checking in to the hotel the front desk staff were very welcoming and friendly. The parking advice was a little sketchy as they don't have a dedicated car park. We basically had to park up just a short walk down the road in a free public parking space (although you can not park there on the 2nd and 4th friday of the month due to street cleaning?). This is common for most parking around the area so beware or incur a fine.

I'm not sure if our room was located on the old or new side, but it was spacious enough with a lovely view of the surrounding hills. The room also had air con and although the bed was quite firm it was still comfortable enough for just a few days. Everything was always kept clean with a daily turn down service. I think my only gripe would be the room socket locations and lack of iron/ironing board.
A safe was provided to us although to obtain a key, a 50 euro deposit is required. This is obviously worth it for peace of mind for your valuables.

The breakfast buffet was really good with plenty of choice to suit all and the staff were always very friendly. We also tried out dinner on two occasions which was equally as good.
As stated before, Montaione is a small town and we only managed to find the hotel restaurant, another hotel restaurant called Carp Diem and a really good local Pizzeria for places to eat so it's quite limited. The local Pizzeria L'Erasmus (based on Piazza G Gramsci) makes really good pizzas for a bargain at around 5-7 euro's each. Highly recommended!

Stayed 5 nights, surrounding town small and friendly, incredible views, a few good restaurants. We used train and bus services which are limited and taxi are expensive and must be prebooked. Enjoyed/ local hikes. Good location for driving tours. A few wineries nearby. Hotel pool nice, breakfast very good, diner quality and service varies, sometimes crowded due to bus tours. Front staff friendly and helpful when planning daily activities.

Room Tip: Recommend you stay in older part of hotel (Italian side), no air conditioning but ambiance good. If...

All English speaking persons and young couples - despite your language will be put in the new/modern part of the hotel separated across the road. Referred to as the "Americans". The main hotel is reserved for the Germans predominately and Euro travelers.
Rooms are clean, comfortable beds, safe for valuables , air conditioned, and small fridge. STILL having some problems with the new build. IE: non-locking doors, loose tiles etc. Lovely semi private ground level patios. Nice and helpful staffing at reception. GREAT TOWN!!! Disappointed we had booked a classic room in main hotel, but as English speaking persons, once there found out that we had no choice but to be put in the section across the road. Menu heavily caters to German tourists. Dinner/supper Menu did not change during our entire stay . As a hotel guest you will have to have a reservation and dress up to receive good service. Service quality is totally different for young couples and English speaking..........Our euro friends found their meals bland while we found ours over salted. We would strongly recommend making a reservation outside the hotel for dinner/supper and more personable service. MEAN WHILE breakfast is fabulous ( one of the best we had in Italy) and morning service is very personable and charming!!!!!!!

Room Tip: new beds comfortable/new bathrooms very nice in "American" part of hotel. ground level wil...
