We have been to this hotel twice. This was the first since new management. The setting is spectacular in the midst of wine vineyards. Hiking is a must and the hotel does provide a small amount of paths for even the most novice walker. For advanced walkers there are more paths close by but you have to cross a busy road but well worth it. The room is large and very modern with an nespresso machine. The shower and tub are beautiful. Spa is amazing. And treatments are very well done and one should go early to enjoy the many facilities. Restaurant is a Michelin Star and it was one of the best restaurants in Italy. Breakfast is also very good. Staff is very nice and accommodating to your every néed without being pretentious at all. My only two complaints are that they hotel should make it clear that it is completely tip free. I ordered room service and I could tell that server wanted a tip although there was a gratuity included on the bill. Lastly, aLthough the renovations were very nice and more modern, the hotel lost a little of its Tuscan charm. But we definitely plan on returning.

Dear Guests thank you for your feedback and for taking the time to leave such a detailed review. We are delighted to know you had a most enjoyable time with Como Castello del Nero and we are grateful on your comments on the property and the quality of service. I am sorry for the bad impression you had from the room service waiter and his expectation for a tip. I would like to confirm that, to my knowledge, there are no hotels in continental Europe where tipping is compulsory. I do confirm that service charge is always included, at least in Italy, and tipping is always to the discretion of the Guest, but absolutely no obligation what so ever!! We look forward to seeing you again next season and wish you a beautiful winter season. Warmest regards Giuseppe Artolli

This was the first hotel of my 16 day/ 7 hotels Italian journey, and was my favorite of all. It is located in beautiful Tuscan hills, but very accessible from the highway. It is best of both world: a beautiful Tuscan villa, redone top to bottom, with modern amenities. For me, it was just perfect choice. Communication before the arrival with the hotel was very prompt and efficient. I emailed requesting couple of restaurant reservations and they took care of it easily. I woke up to a postcard-perfect view of Tuscan country side. I loved the breakfast spread, however, they might have to increase the number of tables in the breakfast room, in case the hotel is fully booked. The food and service at the casual restaurant was impeccable. I highly recommend this hotel for someone who would like a Tuscan villa experience in modern setting.

We had a lovely stay here overall! We stayed in one of the least expensive base rooms and it was absolutely dreamy! View of the gorgeous grounds out of the bedroom window. It was one of the most gorgeous designs of a room/hotel I’ve ever seen. The bed was amazingly comfortable and they had American movies on the tv included which was a nice touch. The staff was attentive and friendly. The grounds are gorgeous and the location is great. Not too far off the beaten path and restaurants and shopping within 5 minutes. Make sure you get a menu for the free included breakfast as the Buffett spread is very unimpressive. No one gave us a menu the first day and we were super disappointed in breakfast. The next day, we were given a menu and ordered the French toast and bacon, DELICIOUS! Last, I loved the turndown service and olive oil parting gift, such a nice touch! One one and only complaint is that EVERYTHING is crazy expensive here. We were fine with paying the $550 a night for the room; however the drinks are outrageously priced in the bar, the spa is insanely priced and we asked reception how much it would be to get a ride to a restaurant 5 mins away (2 miles) and they were going to charge us 80 Euros!!! We opted out and drove ourself the 5 minutes. I would definitely recommend a car if you stay at this hotel since their car service is ridiculously expensive and there is no taxi service in the area. I’d like to say I’d stay here again, but wouldn’t use any of their onsite amenities which kinda defeats the purpose of spending that much money on the room.

Dear Guests thank you for your kind review and positive comments about the property, the style, the rooms, the facilities and the professionalism of the Team. I must apologize for not being provided with a hot breakfast menu on your first morning. Normally menus at set on the table so that everyone can make his own choice. I do not agree on your consideration on our breakfast buffet, which provide Guests with every possible breakfast delicatessen starting from cold cuts (4 types) cheese (3 types) fresh salads and smokes salmon. Fresh orange and grapefruit juice, cereals, yogurts, seeds, nuts, homemade marmalade and our own produced honey. A selection of cut fresh fruit (4) and fresh fruit bowl. Croissant (4 types) 3 fresh fruit tarts, selection of fresh bread, butter, peanuts butter, olive oil…..I would not call it unimpressive!! As for the cost of drinks, prices go from 12 € for a glass of white wine to 16 € for a Negroni/Martini cocktail, 10 € for an after dinner drink and 20 € for a cocktail. I agree with you that transportation in the evening to local restaurants it's expensive as we are a country side resort and there is no taxi or Uber around here. As you wisely indicated, if you have a car it’s wiser to drive to an addresses nearby rather than pay money towards a chauffeur driven car. Luxury is 80% a matter of service and service is provided by human beings who work for a living. if we were an "all-inclusive resort" as you can find easily in the Caribbean, the cost of the room would need to be double if offering the same standards and level of service as we do. Thank you for your visit and hopefully your stay at Como Castello del Nero will remain as avery positive holiday and a beautiful memory. Warmest regards Giuseppe Artolli

We stayed here for 4 nights in late September of this year (2019) during our honeymoon and me and my husband were both so so happy with this place! The hotel is beautiful, the views are stunning, the grounds are so magical and there are some really nice walks/hikes you can go on (bring some bug spray there is the occasional mosquito in the early evening). The staff is extremely accommodating and friendly. But I think the thing that stood out was the attention to detail; turn down service left you a bottle of water on your nightstand every night, housekeeping was like ninjas waiting until the minute you left the room to tidy in the morning, everyone bent The only let down was the restaurant by the pool it’s overpriced and the food wasn’t anything special but, but Le Torre was great definitely go there if you can. Really can’t say enough great things about this place.

A beautiful hotel with stunning Tuscan views. Picture postcard perfect. The whole hotel has been tastefully done. The rooms were spacious and comfortable. The staff are without exception welcoming, super helpful and friendly. Particular mention to the Concierge who is a fount of knowledge and ideas. Overall service is hard to beat. The food is varied, interesting and tasty. Great wine list with an excellent Sommelier. Very good breakfast. Nice tennis courts and a really good long pool for those that like to do their lengths. The spa and the gym are top notch. My wife loved her massage. The location could not be better equidistant between Florence and Sienna and near to gems like Passignano, Radda in Chianti and Greve in Chianti. Our best day was exploring the local area on electric bikes, really fun and so so beautiful. I wish we could have stayed longer. We will definitely be back.
