“great view!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2013

The hotel itself is ok. Rooms are spacious but nothing special: service is fine. Air con is working very slowly. The best thing about the hotel is however the amazig view, especially from the pool! Free parking is provided closeby.

We "always" stay here when we visit Montalcino. It is the view, the pool and the location that brings us back. The staff is friendly, particularly in the breakfast cafe. This time, the man on the night watch was very helpful when we wanted to enjoy a glass of wine on the terrace before going to bed. He made a difference this time.

An advice to the hotel management is to have the reception staff being a bit more attentive to the guests instead of "hiding" behind the desk. They are friendly but not very accommodating unless approached.

We have just returned from a four night stay at Dei Capitani. If you're looking for five star opulence and expensive prices then this isn't the place for you. If you want one of the best views from your balcony and matching view from the pool then you can't beat this hotel.
Friendly staff, good buffet breakfast, breathtaking views and great value for money. Oh and its located in the fantastic hilltop town of Montalcino. Loved every minute and wish I was still there.

Lovely small hotel overlooking amazing vistas of the Tuscan hills. Gorgeous swimming pool and delightful breakfast buffet which is served under umbrellas on the veranda/ patio overlooking the hills. The room itself opened to a small french style balcony( meaning, one person can stand on it!) but the view is breathtaking. The furnishings are simple, room was clean and bathroom small. Shower in the bathroom was an interesting size and entry but adequate.

Parking is at a premium in this hilly village but the front desk staff were terrific directing us exactly where to park. The value for this room and breakfast was excellent!

Staff was kind and accommodating and made excellent recommendations for dining. Stay here if you want an amazing view and don't worry about big city hotel creature comforts...not needed here ....with the amazing Tuscan countryside, fields of sunflowers, olive trees, grapevines and delicious food and wines around every corner!

We will definitely be back.

Room Tip: Ask for a room overlooking the pool/ Tuscan hills.

This hotel is in a wonderful town - Montalcino. The atmosphere is pure Tuscan Hill town mixed with Brunello wine and the views from the terrace of the hotel take some beating.
Our room wasn't the best hotel room being on two levels and quite spartan but as we only stayed for one night it wasn't really a problem, if we had wanted to stay longer I think I would have asked for a room in the hotel proper. The breakfast on the terrace overlooking the Val D'Orcia was a delight.
There is free parking but after unloading our cases in front of the hotel we then had to hunt around a couple of car parks in Montalcino before we found a place.
Small quibbles because I would happily return to the Hotel dei Capitani

Driving from Rome towards Florence we spent only 1 night in Montalcino - the area is Beautiful and I wish we had stay another day. The town of Montalcino is up high so the views are picturesque. Hotel Capitani has a wonderful terrace and pool that take in the view. They accommodated us with a "family room" 2 twins downstairs and a loft w/ a kingsize bed, so it was very convenient and a good price. furnishings were simple.
Breakfast was a good buffet out on the atrium/terrace. We enjoyed the pool. It was wonderful to walk thru the town at night, restaurants were good. Hotel parking was not a problem.
