We stayed here in July 2013. We had a wonderful room, great reception and all around relaxing and lovely experience. We would definitely stay here again if we return to this city! Cinzia is a great hostess! All rooms are top of the line in quality, amenities and cleanliness.

This beautiful, small, welcoming 4 room inn in Montepulciano was the perfect home for exploring Tuscany. Cinzia is a wonderful, warm welcoming hostess. She welcomed us with a glass of wine and snacks. It was like going to someone's home and not an inn. She gave us spot on recommendations for restaurants, shops, and day trips and was always there asking us about each experience. The suite had incredible views over both sides of town and the best sunset view imaginable. We left the windows open at night and had a beautiful, cool Tuscan cross breeze all night. Breakfast is included and is excellent. The attached wine bar was a great place to relax after a long day or grab a glass of wine before or after dinner. We loved all the people working there. We also loved Montepulciano - what a fantastic town to call home for a few days. Can't imagine a better place to stay in Tuscany. Thank you Cinzia!

Room Tip: The suite is worth the extra money - great views on both sides of the valley, beautiful sunsets, gre...

Perfect top-of-the-hill sanctuary in Montepulciano with the most comfortable bed. We happen to stay in 2 different rooms-the king and their 3-room suite. The king room has expansive views of the Valdichiana Valley- simple accommodations with a rustic charm. The 3 -room suite has great views of both valleys including the Val D'Orcia. Loaded with amenities including own computer, satellite/ cable systems, luxurious bath, historic church bell tower room (aka club room), sumptuous robes, etc. Breakfast of fruits, cheese, cold cuts, hard-boiled eggs, fresh juice, cappuccino and the heavenly farm-fresh yogurt. Lovely hosts, what else can I say? Can't wait to return.

Dear Ebbtide123,

Thanks for the detailed review you wrote about our property!

There is a not a lot to add to all the reviews as this is surely one of the finest places we have ever stayed at...The owners, staff, hotel, winebar and town are all AAA...the views are sometimes indescribable, as they must be experienced...ours was outstanding every minute of the day...the town itself is incredible and the joy of parking the car in front of the hotel for 2 days and enjoying the town was a bonus....thank you all for an amazing journey to montepulciano..we will never forget it and hope to return someday

We stayed here in August 2013.The welcome was so friendly and of course involved chilled prosecco and nibbles! Our room was immaculate and tastefully decorated with a large comfy bed, it over looked the small piazza and had amazing views. In the night you could hear the flags in the square flapping in the breeze. I would return here in a heartbeat. The central location meant that we could easily walk in to town for drinks and food with several great recommendations and a useful map in our hand. We tasted, and purchased, some good wines from the hotel wine bar too.

Room Tip: worth upgrading for the breeze and the amazing views

Dear Qsilver,
Thank you for your time in writing a so kind review about our Locanda San Francesco.
Also, thank you for mentioning that the Locanda is in the heart of the historic center of the Montepulciano, so that all the restaurants, shops, monuments, like all the events in town are within an easy reach on foot.
I'm very glad you had the opportunity to enjoy the beauty of Montepulciano during the month of the Barrel Race "Bravio delle Botti", with all the colours of the flags of the Contradas giving a new life to all the streets of the old town.
Hoping we will have the opportunity to welcome you again at Locanda San Francesco,
Warmest regards

A proper honeymoon type hotel in a Beautiful location. Gorgeous wine bar beneath with a lovely atmosphere. Worth going to the owners Wine Tasting vineyards. Great bathrooms, very clean and comfortable. Lovely breakfast with delicious food. This is a stunning hotel. If you're thinking of any other in this area then don't you won't find better than this. We loved our stay and will be returning again next year for sure.

Looking for the very best – look no further. Locanda San Francesco is the best! An amazing property located at the top of Montepulciano with incredible views. We had views of the Val D'Orcia and Valdichiana valleys from our room - incredible sunsets from one window and a full moon out of the other window. Cinzia, an incredible hostess, who speaks English very well, greeted us with a glass of wine and took the time to tell us all about the property, Montepulciano, and the area. She is amazing – she made our 3-night stay very special. The staff and service was excellent, the food incredible (breakfast included), and the attached wine bar had a jazz band playing our first night. We cannot wait to go back!
