We drove into Certaldo and found a funicular railway to save us the climb up to the Alto township perched on the hill overlooking beautiful Tuscany scenery and vineyards. We fell in love with the place and decided to see if we could find an hotel. The Tourist Information bureau directed us to Alebergo 11Castello and what a recommendation. The... More

Huge thank you to Alfred and staff at this beautiful little Tuscan hotel for making our wedding perfect. We, along with family and friends took over the hotel for our wedding in Certaldo Alto. It is a simple, authentic Tuscan hotel with very reasonable prices and beautiful views. We loved it.

We were on a bike trip in Tuscany and this hotel was on our itinerary. Alfred, the owner, was very hospitable and we had great discussions about jazz and the local area. The hotel striking with creeping ivy and a tranquil ambience. Occasionally, Alfred will play jazz piano in the evenings adding to ease of the place. The breakfast was... More

We stopped here for a drink and a rest but I was a bit disappointed with the attitude of the staff. We went back another day and waited a long time for someone to come and take our order. The tortoises roaming in the garden were charming however.

Certaldo is a tiny fortified hilltop village in Tuscany. This hotel is just as ancient with simple but comfortable rooms and lots of open terraces for dining and relaxing. Rooms are €90 with breakfast. The owner is Alfred who is a laid back character with stories to tell. We would stay here again.

Three years in a row in Certaldo Alto , all three times I stayed at Alfred's place. No reason to go elsewhere. Nice place, excellent staff, great coffee, music.... I'll be back next year again for sure. Ciao Belle

We recently visited Certaldo for our wedding, we booked out the entire hotel and what an excellent choice. Alfred was outstanding, his communication was superb before we even arrived and offered assistance on all sorts of odd queries from us. We loved it at il Castello and hope to return one day.

What an amazing view of Tuscan hill country from our room (#1). The outdoor dining area is spectacular. The service is good, rooms are large enough, our bathroom was typical, however most of the other rooms have remodeled spacious bathrooms.
