Right in the old town just inside north entrance where public parking is available. Comfortable room with decent A/C, nice person at desk. Good value if staying in town.Walk to all that is Volterra, our new favorite hill town.

The Hotel was dated but was very comfortable and the staff were very friendly. The breakfast was very good. Be aware that you need to call the Hotel beforehand and give them your licence plate number or stop right outside the Hotel and give it to them if you drive into the main town. Otherwise you get a fine. There... More

We had one of the smallest rooms but it was large enough though dated. The bed was comfortable and the bathroom was luxurious. The transient public sewer smell was off-putting. We enjoyed the hotel's outdoor patio which was quaint. The included Italian style breakfast was very good. The free parking advertised is a public lot a few blocks and 250... More

Dear Veliger1, Thank you so much for staying with us and for letting us know your opinion. We are really sorry for the smell of public sewer, but Volterra is an old city, and sometimes, in particular conditions of air and season, has this problem. For the parking, you're right, we are into the centre, in a good position to... More

From the moment we arrived on Thursday to leaving today, everything was perfect. Wonderful, helpful and friendly people, excellent breakfast and incredibly efficient service, and a large, spotlessly clean and comfortable room. This is a hotel I would love to revisit. Thank you everyone.

We were really impressed, from check-in, the room, breakfast and check-out was first rate. The room we had was very large, very quiet, magnificent bathroom, although the shower was a little on the small size, a large person could find it tight.
