My wife and i stayed at Armena after visiting Lucerne, Positano and Rome. This was one of the clear highlights of our trip. Owners Edoardo and Elena welcome you to the hotel as if they were welcoming you to their home. The two also go out of their way to make sure your trip is special. The restaurant was fantastic, one of the best of the whole trip and we ended up eating there several nights in a row (the Tuscan steak was enormous and phenominal). We also did the cooking class with the head Chef and learned to make a number of local tuscan dishes. For one of our days, Elena organized a tour of wine country for us which was great. Each room is unique and well designed.
Two areas for improvement from our trip:
1) You definitely need a car here. We ignored the hotels suggestion about renting a car and that limits your options. Taxis here are extremely expensive and destinations are spread around the countryside. We will be less stupid next time and make sure to have wheels to take us around.
2) Would be great if the hotel had a fitness center, even if limited.
We will definitely be back next year. Highly recommended.
