If you're visiting Tuscany, or Montepulciano more specifically, you should stay here! From the moment my wife and I arrived, Ivana was a great host. She was friendly, made us breakfast the following morning, and made us feel welcome. Giorgio offered us directions when we were about to leave. Our room was one of the best I've ever stayed at -- large, bright, loft with sitting area, and balcony with a stunning view of the town on one side and the country on another. Even in our short stay, we spent a lot of time on the balcony, enjoying the sun and the evening breeze and taking in the views. The building overall is also nice, historic and charming. Make sure to check out the rooftop deck also.
Two things to keep in mind: breakfast is not included, but was reasonably priced. There are no elevators, so be prepared to carry your luggage up the stairs.
This is a great hotel on all fronts: the hosts, the building, location, rooms, and atmosphere. Definitely stay here.
