We recently stayed at this hotel and while we arrived extremely late a night, the hotel manager met us with no issue and made sure we re got settled. Having arrived late we didn't fully realize how lovely the area was and had a great view when we woke the next morning. The suite was excellent value, the food was... More

We spent two nights in this small hotel in the Maremma. The view from the room was wonderful. The breakfast was nice, with homemade cakes. The piazza outside seemed like a private space even though iti is public. The staff were friendly and helpful. Sorano does not have as much to offer as some other towns but it is a... More

We loved this hotel its so unique, you sleep in a fortress of medieval era. Well if you like this type of history, like I do. You should also tour the fortress and the museum right next to it. The town has antique stores, cheese store, restaurants, great monuments, and a wine tasting canteen with local wines! All just steps... More

This was a special place for myself, husband and daughter. We arrived to find out that a reservations for one room with 3 beds had been replaced with 2 rooms. My grown daughter was excited to get away from her parent for the night. We were in awl over this old hotel. The views from the rooms were fanatic, and... More

I spent a night here with my parents, husband and children (10 and 8). I found it to be a perfectly delightful, one-of-a-kind experience -- the views are TRULY specular as indeed is the fortress itself. I've never had to cross a moat to reach my bedroom before... The staff was courteous and helpful and there were a variety of... More

I decided to spend a night in Sorano after I noticed this hotel online. The town, while lovely, is tiny and won't constitute even a single day of sightseeing. However, for the price, the view, the charm, and the excellent restaurants down the street, this is a special place to stay for a night before exploring Tuscany (I stayed the... More

We were really amazed by the location of this hotel. Spectacular views over the town of Sorano. i've never stayed anywhere like this before. It is an old fort, so it makes complete sense that it would overlook the rooftops. Friendly staff, nice breakfast. A bat did sneak in the window, which was a bit of a surprise, but my... More

It was great to stay in a real castle. You have to cross a moat to get to it. They gave me, as a single traveler, a great room with a million dollar view over the entire city and countryside. It was extraordinary. Being a castle keep in mind a number of things. There is no air conditioning, but a... More

Very friendly welcome, comfortable rooms with the most amazing views down onto the old town. We dined at the local restaurant associated with the castle (turn left & 250yrds on left) which buzzed, served wonderful food & was really frequented by locals. For those touring in the area, thoroughly recommended in every way

I am flabergasted to read the review prior to mine, but all I can say is "to each his own". My opinion of this hotel couldn't be more opposed to the one previous. We were just blown away at how lovely this hotel was. It is charming and you feel like your living a fairy tale. The views from the... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
La Fortezza Orsini di Sorano è uno dei più imponenti esempi di Architettura militare dell’intera Toscana,e fu una delle più importanti piazzeforti.La leggenda della “Fortezza Inespugnabile”,si tramanda tuttora e se ne può leggere nelle cronache dell’epoca ( Niccolò dell’Antella nel 1608 Scriveva a proposito della Fortezza : ……..Gli sta sopra come un falcone……e quando si è per terra…..per cosa di stupore a rimirare una fabbrica a altezza tale che quasi pare che l’occhio vi si smarrisca….) ,per tanto tempo la Fortezza di Sorano ha difeso i confini della Toscana meridionale e il Paese sottostante,a renderlo imprendibile erano: La sua posizione rafforzata dalle antiche mura e la chiusura dell’unica via di accesso dai bastioni della Fortezza Orsini.All’interno della Cittadella della Fortezza nella parte più vecchia (precedente alla ristrutturazione dell’architetto Sangallo ) dopo aver oltrepassato il ponte levatoio sul fossato nella piccola piazza si trova L’Hotel della Fortezza,dotato di 16 Camere arredate con raffinata eleganza e mobili d’epoca , dalle cui finestre si può godere di una vista mozzafiato a picco sull’antico borgo di Sorano,inoltre l’altra particolarità dell’Hotel della Fortezza è quella di avere tutte le camere diverse,per potervi regalare un soggiorno unico……………………………….. ... more   less
