“Amazing town”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 25, 2012

The hotels location is amazing andt his town is a must see! In terms of hotel quality - linen, bed, pillows, bathroom extras etc, the hotel was really good. The rooms were very clean and tidy, but really small. The bed was almost not a double bed in size. It seemed to be more between a three quarter and a double. A large couple would struggle. We had a village facing room but we caught a glimps of the view from one of the valley facing rooms - wow! They also looked significantly bigger.
However if it is friendliness that you are after, this you won't get from the owners. They weren't unhelpful they just never smiled very easily (or at all).
The food at the restaurant was really good. We had dinner there and our waitress was great. The breakfast the next day was also comprehensive.

We did not stay here, but the restaurant isn't listed under tripadvisor restaurants in Montalcino and should be, as the food is wonderful. We had an excellent dinner (cinghale and beef), with a bottle of wine, 2 secondos, 2 sides and a shared dessert (pears in Brunello, spectacular!) for 66,00 euro, which was really reasonable for the quality of the food. Our waitress was a sweetheart. We would recommend this place to any one.

Great wine list. Fresh pasta made with local and in season ingredients. Lots of Italians eating there, always a good sign. The owner (I think) has a great knowledge of wine and local wineries. Service was very good. They use a dumb waiter to bring the food to the dining room, very cool. 2 tables have a view but the food is so good you don't necessarily need them.

We stayed as part of an iron donkey cycle tour of Tuscany. We checked in pretty easily and the owner stored our bikes in the garage without any fuss. The room had plenty of character with exposed beams and furniture to compliment. It was spacious enough, well maintained and quiet. The bed was comfortable and good selection at breakfast. Great view over the valley from the window. We would seek this place out if in the area again.

My wife and I stayed here as part of a wine tour. We both have nothing but wonderful things to stay about our experience. The check in was smooth. We have not stayed in Montalcino prior to this trip, but the rooms were larger than many of the rooms that we experienced in other parts of Italy. Lots of great Brunellos to chose from. Breakfast was very good. We would stay here again and recommend this to anyone traveling to Montalcino. We plan to come back next year.

We love this place and will always come back.

The family are true gentile personne. The parents do not speak much English which others confuse with rudeness. This is nonsense! They are very welcoming and simply make you at home and comfortable.

For the last few visits we have had the opportunity to use the family mansard apartment. It is private and very comfortable with full facilities. There is no lift so be prepared to walk up to floors. It is however a home from home.

My wife and I very much enjoyed our stay at this charming hotel. The location and setting could not have been any better in Montalcino. The accomodations were a little tight but adequate, and was consistent with what we would expect from a building and town with this much history. I felt the price for our room was extremely fair. The staff was very responsive, the dinner was very good and the wine list quite impressive if you are into Brunellos.

Room Tip: We requested room 1N which has the patio but it was not available. Instead we stayed in the room di...
