Reviewed December 19, 2013

We stayed here for three nights in early November 2013 and were very pleased with the service, room quality, and overall helpfulness of the owners and staff.

Even before we arrived, Gio was a godsend. We had a hard time finding our way around the town. And, literally, it is 'around the town'. Access to this particular hilltown is via a winding road that hugs the hill as it ascends. We made it into the town access road, then continued too far and were descending out of Montepulciano. A phone call to the Mueble il Riccio got us back on track and we were soon in the correct parking lot (as an aside, there are about 8 numbered lots around town for overnight and day visitors).

Next, and this could be my only knock on the inn, we rolled our bags across the plaza and into the inn. Unfortunately, there is no elevator so we lugged them up step by step.

Once situated in our room, we had a chance to take in the fantastic view of the Tuscan countryside as the sun set. It was beautiful, as is the sunrise; the room faces east, so if you like sunrises, you will enjoy watching daybreak over Tuscany. The room itself (one of the suites, possibly #4) was quite large, perfectly clean, featured a modern, beautiful, roomy bathroom, access to a balcony and had a little alcove space, accessible via circular staircase, above the main room.

The room had a nice strong wi-fi signal, which was great, since we needed it to research excursions for our short stay here.

Breakfast was good, but I would not say great. The homemade breakfast cakes and cappuccino were very tasty, but there wasn't any fresh fruit. Cereal and toast were offered, as well as a kind of frozen coffee milkshake/frappe, which I tasted but didn't think was cold enough to have again (it was also sold for an extra charge). I should note regarding breakfasts that I have not developed a taste for European style breakfasts and have never had one to rave about.

Regarding the helpfulness of the innkeepers here, there is no doubt. While we were there, they helped us find the laundromat in Montepulciano, booked us dinner reservations, a winery tour and helped get us on the highway to Florence. Very helpful and friendly at all times.

I would love to return someday and would definitely stay there again, except will pack lighter next time!!

Dear MEB 81, thank you for sharing your opinion about our small hotel and we are very happy that your stay with us was enjoyable even if we can not understand why if everything is "perfectly clean" in the detailed assessment you give a rating of 4 instead of 5.
We hope to see you again.
Arrivederci!

We stayed at the Meuble Il Riccio in October and hope to return one day soon to this elegant
family owned B & B. The rooms are lovely, clean, and good sized. Gio and Ivana are friendly hosts who take pride in their establishment and strive to make you feel at home. It was the best part of our trip to Tuscany.

This beautiful home has been made into a quaint, amazing Inn. The owners are family, well they make you feal like family. The view is beautiful, the breakfast was amazing and the location is perfect. They will respond to your emails and get you with a hug. God bless this wonderful Inn, honestly, the best hotel on a 17 day trip. Make sure you can climb stairs as there is no lift we saw. We will be back.

Stayed in the Mueble il Riccio for three nights, 11/27 - 29. Wonderful base for us to explore that region in Tuscany. I requested the room with the best view, and was not disappointed. Wow. We stayed on the Ricchio suite, and, my only regret is that is was too cold to sit out on the balcony and enjoy a nice bottle of wine, which, of course, won't be too hard to find in that town. I am jealous of those who had and will have the pleasure of that balcony in warmer weather.
The room is updated with most everything new, and tastefully decorated. Wi Fi worked great.
Great breakfast, wonderful hosts, fantastic location. This is your hotel if you are thinking of staying in this area of Tuscany.

Thank you, Giorgio and Ivana.

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.

My husband and I had the pleasure of staying at this lovely property for three nights in mid-October and used Montepulciano as our home base to explore a bit of Tuscany. We chose a view room in the Riccio Suite, a newly renovated space offering beautiful accommodations. The view was utterly magnificent looking out over the town of Montepulciano and the Tuscan countryside. The magic of the light at twilight and in the early morning hours is breathtaking.

What sets this property apart is the fact that you truly feel like you are being welcomed into the home of a wonderful Italian family, which indeed you are. Giorgio and Ivana were wonderful hosts; grazie mille for the fabulous dinner recommendations! The property itself is a home, not a hotel, which comes across in the ambience and service. We also thoroughly recommend enjoying a glass of wine on the tiny roof top terrace which gives you a magnificent perch above the town and countryside.

Our room was very comfortable with an updated, but still traditional feel. The bathroom was wonderful, very large with a nice tub/shower and as wonderful a view as the main bedroom. Free wi-fi worked well and there was ample storage as well as a small mini-bar/fridge. The room was absolutely immaculate as was the entirety of the property.

Montepulciano itself is a wonderful home base for exploring Tuscany. We enjoyed exploring the area during the day and then returning to the lovely small town atmosphere. Walking across the piazza after dinner in the evening was magical; perhaps one or two other people but otherwise just you and centuries of history surrounding you.

Lovely stay from start to finish. Would highly recommend enjoying the hospitality of this wonderful family in this stunning area.

I just can't say enough about this hotel. It was our favorite stay on a 25 days European trip. The town of Montepulciano was our favorite and Mueble IL Ricco was heavenly. Gio and his wife, Ivana, felt like family. We rented the "hedgehog suite" which was spacious, immaculately clean, and had views of the entire valley out our balcony. Ivana's breakfasts were delicious. I wish I could return their hospitality in California.
