The Hotel Barolo is in a perfect spot to explore the vineyards. It is a very short walk to the village of Barolo and it has lovely views over the vineyards to the Castle of Barolo. The pool is great.
We stayed in the new wing. The rooms are very clean and comfortable. Breakfast is typical of Italian small hotels. Continental with things such as salami, cheese, breads and boiled eggs on offer. Excellent was the orange juice - pink in colour and squeezed from blood oranges. My only gripe was that trying to get a decent cup of coffee each morning was like pulling teeth. We wanted a decent espresso and they kept referring us to the pre-made urn of coffee and saying "American". My Italian was not good enough to tell them I wasn't American, but I would also be surprised if American tourists settled for pre-made coffee. Sorry but I'm not travelling all the way to Italy to drink crap coffee.
Food in the restaurant was good, and the view from the terrace delightful. The restaurant was closed on one of the nights we stayed. The Brezza wines are excellent, although many on the wine list were not available - a shame because we were prepared to spend the money on some older vintages.
I would stay here again and I would recommend it as a great base to travel round the Barolo region. Also I would try to learn a little more Italian next time - in this part of Italy (unlike the more common tourist areas) English is not very common and the language barrier posed a few issues. (Like trying to get a decent cup of coffee)
