This hotel is located essentially in the middle of nowhere: the town of Portavaldera is 15 km north, and even the hamlet of Peccioli is some 2 km away (and uphill). But if you drive and intend to be in a place that distant, this accommodation is a good value. The hotel is attached to a huge sport complex, and hosts athlets doing training. Looking drab from outside, it is very nice and neat inside. Rooms are spacious, business-style (desk, free Wi-Fi, air-conditioning, no fridge). Twin beds possible. Parking is no problem (free, of course).
The friendly and helpful staff speaks good English. There was a kind of emergency when electricity was shut down for about half-an-hour in the evening. The lady at the reception informed us in advance, and did her best to provide candles. Finally, we had a romantic evening with little trouble from the power interruption. The on-site restaurant looks quite good, although we did not have a chance to try it (fully booked because of the New Year Eve). The ample breakfast lacked hot meals that is typical for Italy.
The only problem is a kind of mismatch between the location and price. 70€ for a double in the very distant place is probably too much, at least in Italy. The surrounding area looks pretty, but it is better suited for sports rather than hiking. The hotel sits in the very flat valley, while the picturesque hills are some km away.
