If you stay in the town of Montepulciano, we recommend this place! The owners are very friendly (the husband, Gio, speaks English). We stayed in room #6 (I think there are only 6 rooms), which was huge! It had two large windows, one overlooking the street, and one the courtyard. It also had a desk, large closet, small table with two chairs, large bathroom, etc. A great value, it includes AC, wireless internet, and computer access, as well as parking in the town not far from the hotel (which if you know how hilly the town is, their parking is a great asset!). There is a small patio on the roof...where we had a bottle of wine and a pizza one night. Breakfast is not included in the rates, but we enjoyed going to a local patisserie called Caffe Poliziano. This cafe had an excellent view from their balcony of the wine country.
We found this hotel via Rick Steve's 2009 guide for Italy. Very pleased with his recommendations for this town, as well as other areas. If you go, the wine tasting he recommends at Contucci Cantina is very good, and very close by. Also, his recommendations for Ai Quattro Venti and Osteria del Conte are great!
A wonderful hotel for a memorable trip to Montepulciano!
