“Sweet little hotel in quiet town”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 28, 2012 via mobile

Our room was sweet. It was also air-conditioned, which was unusual in Tuscany, but given the 80 degree days in October, it was much appreciated. We stayed at a number of accommodations during our stay and this was probably our favorite. If you can ignore the church bells every 20 minutes (they cool it overnight) Monte San Savino is very quite after dark. The rooms in this hotel are very comfortable and nicely furnished. Our bed was very comfortable and the bathroom was larger and better layed out than the other we stayed at.

Stayed October 2012, traveled as a couple

A nice little hotel situated right in the middle of the walled hamlet of Monte San Savino in the Arezzo area of Tuscany. The town is a jewel and we were fortunate enough to be there during their annual festival held in June.

Our room was nice and very clean with a huge terrace (second floor - can’t recall the room number) that overlooked the town garden and red tiled rooftops.

Monte San Savino was a great home place for visiting other lovely close towns such as Castiglione Fiorentino, Cortona, & Lucignano to name a few.

If you’re looking for a hotel in town so that you can walk to restaurants and shops, yet travel the area during the day, I recommend Logge dei Mercanti.

Room Tip: Ask for the room with the very large terrace that overlooks the garden.

While driving from Florence to Rome we simply decided to turn off and experience a bit of Tuscany. And that's how we ended up in Monte San Savino. A quaint little village hidden behind a 20 meter high wall. It was so beautiful that we half expected it to have not have any power yet.

After a stimulating conversation with the locals, using our hands and feet, we were sent to see Gian Carlo at the Hotel Logge Dei Mercanti. Gian who spoke just enough to check us in for the night and he even walked us down to the local restaurant for an authentic Italian meal.

This was the kind of experience that made you feel like the world was a better place.

Room Tip: pick a high one for the best views

Stayed by chance in this lovely hotel in June 2011 in a 3 persons room. The hotel is in an old pharmacy in the center of the town.The room was standard of a 3 stars hotel with all the necessities, including flat screen TV. The bathroom was excellent as well. The doors of the rooms are painted with floral decorations, which give the hotel a very special charm. The furnishing of the room was simple, but comfortable and the decor classic. Had a room facing the street with a interesting view over the tiled roofs and the old buildings of the town.

The nice atmosphere of the hotel was enhanced by the very pleasant young lady receptionist and the wonderful breakfast, served in the carefully and tastefully restored basement/cave of the building.

The town itself is a small Italian town with plenty of impressive old buildings and a town wall with towers and gates, from where you enter to the center. Very atmospheric with daily life and little tourism. Car traffic is not allowed in the center of the town, but you may bring your car for off- and onloading your luggage at the hotel. Parking - with time limits - on the town square just inside the city wall. Unlimited parking outside the walls.

There is a good number of restaurants in the town in walking distance from the hotel. We chose Trattoria del Forno, and were very pleased with our choice. An authentic Italian restaurant where we were the only non-Italians, with all the life you expect from a popular, local restaurant. The food was excellent and so were the wines, aperitivi and digestivi.

We will definitely go back to the hotel, the restaurant and the town, if we should be in the neighbourhood.

We stayed at Hotel Logge Dei Mercanti for just one night. The man on the front desk was friendly, and as previous reviews stated his english wasn't great but we also got by. Rooms were OK and comfortable, but pretty basic and a bit shabby in places. Personally we weren't too keen on whoever it was smoking downstairs, as this made the whole hotel smell of smoke.

There wasn't much to do in the town itself at this time of year, and we struggled to find anywhere to eat dinner, but there was a good little take-away pizzeria down near the carpark we stopped in.

We booked a few days in advance, and although it was fine and we got a good night's sleep, the brochure for another hotel just down the street next to our TV made us think we picked the wrong place as it looked much nicer. Not sure why they put it there.

The Logge is a gem. Gian Carlo, a permanent fixture at the front desk, was friendly and helpful (though he didn't speak a lick of English, but who cares! We figured it out) and twice walked us to beautiful sites and restaurants. The rooms are charming, though, in true Italian tradition, a little chilly. The place has a B&B feel with an amazing breakfast room in the cheery cellar. The beauty of the town itself is not to be denied and, give its size, it's difficult to get lost, so go explore!!!
