Small family run hotel providing friendly and efficient service. Choice at breakfast is plentyful and fresh. Request a room with viewes across to the coast. Location is convenient for the old town. Free parking.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 21, 2012

We stayed at the Duca del Mare with a group of 21 people from the US, UK, Australia and Greece, touring Tuscany by Vespa. Excellent hotel, great location, friendly, courteous and helpful staff. The hotel has all the necessary amenities for individuals or groups. We were pleasantly surprised to find breakfast tables (nice breakfast, by the way) prominantly marked as "Reserved" for our group. The owner is a member of the local vespa Club, and members of that club surprised us and met us 20 km outside of town to lead us to the hotel. Massa Marittima is a lovely town, and we were treated to a riding tour of it by the local vespa Club. Yes, we Vespa owners are a unique breed, but we reserved accommodations and got so very much more. All our group members have stated that the Duca del Mare is to be included again on our next Tuscany tour!

A relaxing place for a stay and with air conditioning thank goodness although in the rooms it goes off in the middle of the night for a couple of hours and after 10am until 3pm. Very friendly and helpful staff, free wi-fi (log in password from reception) a plus, as is the small pool. I did not see a lift and we had two sets of stairs to climb to our room, plus the breakfast is served in the basement. The breakfast has a lot of choice, although more geared to the sweet tooth than the savoury, and much of it prepackaged. Coffee and tea came from a machine, not very nice, but a good selection of fruit juices and fresh fruit aplenty more than made up for this. There is a bar by reception and the pool, but it did not appear to offer food so be prepared to go up the steep hill to the cathedral square to eat in the evening.
Finally the room was fine - no fridge sadly in ours (although there was a cupboard which looks like it could have had one inside at one time). TV largely Italian (100 channels), for English speakers the rather tedious BBC World. However the view from the doors which opened onto a small balcony where you could sit outside was awesome, sweeping down to the Mediterranean at Follonica and beyond to the Isle of Elba.
We stayed here for three nights, and I would have no qualms about booking here again.

We have visited this hotel several times. The family who run the hotel are very friendly. The pool area is lovely, with an adjoining bar.There is a large selection for breakfast. The centre of Massa Marittima is only a few minutes away and there are lots of restaurants,shops, bars and a lovely gelateria.

Room Tip: Rooms facing the garden/pool area are the best

Great location - just a 10 minute walk from the historic town centre. Comfortable, clean with a great view from the room. Friendly staff and good breakfast.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a view.
