“Good value Hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 27, 2012

We stayed here in October for three nights. Lovely hotel with large room and large bathroom, both very clean. Very friendly and extremely helpful staff. Good breakfast. Great location for Florence and Siena. Just off autostrada so a car is a must. Close to railway station for Florence.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2012

I stayed in this hotel for 2 nights in the middle of the notorious August summer.

These are things I like about the hotel: Location - It is close to the Prada outlet mall Space and The Mall for shopping. It is close to scenic countryside locations like Radda, Giaole, Greve. It is also next to a petrol kiosk and a few restaurants, so if you are feeling lazy to go far, you can just eat at the restaurants within 5 minutes of walking.

Staff - They are friendly and speak good English. They upgraded our rooms as we were newly weds, which was a really nice gesture. Before my travel, I emailed the owner for some tips on where to travel in the Chianti region, which the owner replied the very next day. This helped me immensely in planning my driving route. In the end, I planned a 1 day driving route from the hotel to Gaiole, Radda and then up to Greve. Coming back, I stopped at The Mall outlet, followed by Prada Space outlet mall, and finally back to the hotel.

Cost - It is value for money.

Comfort - Room and toilet were both quite spacious and clean.

Parking - Free parking for hotel guests.

The main downside of this hotel was that the air-conditioning was not strong enough to cool the room in the intense summer heat, even at night. You have to be prepared for this, probably with a small portable battery operated fan or simply just sleeping without the blankets and sheets. What I did, which hopefully did not cause trouble to the hotel owners, was I moved my bed directly to under the central airconditioning. This really helped a lot on my second night.

We travel at least once a year by car from The Netherlands to my grandparents who live in the south of Italy. Hotel Il Viandante is very well located a couple hundred kilometers south from the middle of the total travel distance. It is very close to a highway exit, so getting there is very easy and time-efficient.
The hotel is clean, with comfortable rooms and helpful staff. The breakfast is decent and the price is pretty well too.

We've stayed here for two consecutive years and if traffic allows us to stop in this area again, we will certainly stay at il Viandante again.

Have stayed in a few hotels in this region and I must say the IL Viandante is definitely the best here! Super clean and big rooms, very polite staff, good breakfast and ample parking. I will remember to bring fridge magnets for the owner when i drop by the next trip as I know she collects them =)

We just arrived around 8PM after 4 hours traveling by car and we found a very pleasant receptionist and a really good basket full of fresh fruits.
The room was clean and comfortable, the bathroom well organized.
It is located close to the main motorway and all the best locations of Tuscany could be reached. In the morning a well sorted breakfast is available.
Very good for business purpose in the area, but not only!

Hi Superescricciolina (nice nik, SuperLittleBabyHamster in Eng)..
You were absolutely right when you have told to the pleasant receptionist because hi was me!
^_^ (i'm joking)..
We remember you very clearly you were really tired when you arrived here and we are happy that you like the fresh basket fruit into the hall..
You have to know that those fruits are coming from our fields, they are sited directly behind the hotel. If you want, next time, we will tell you where the plant are exactly and you will be able to go there taking fruits directly from the fruit garden!

Once thank again, all the best ... Ema.

My Mum, my sis and I stayed in Il Viandante for 1 week and we had lovely time thanks to the staff who are amazing. The location of the hotel is perfect for day trips to Siena, Florence, Pisa and Lucca. Plus famous outlets are just right the corner. Their rate was cheap, the rooms were big and very clean, the breakfast was delicious, but above all the customer service was excellent which made our stay a very pleasant experience. We will definitely be back!

Hi Barbara,
thank you very much for feedback you have written.
You are really nice and we are so satisfied to have been so pleasant for you and you family too.
For Me and our familiar staffs the most important thing is not the money (also if that is important too), it is the guest satisfaction, we really work mainly because of this.
When you came back, because of showing the appreciation for this comment... i promise you a glass of the best wine i have for every one (for children, fruit juice).

I wait for your next time!
Regards from Ema.
