“Decent hotel in central location”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 10, 2012 via mobile

Nice hotel, decent standard but not very luxurious, very centrally located in Volterra. Friendly staff in the reception. Two big plusses: parking garage and swimming pool available. However, ridiculously thin walls and very soft beds (unusual in Italia). Great views from "Belvedere" terrace. A complimentary welcome dinner at a local restaurant was a disappointment. Would recommend the hotel, but don't expect too much.

Stayed July 2012, traveled as a couple

Booked here for one night to attend a friends wedding.
Hotel was clean, although the beds had really sharp edges sticking out which I knocked my legs on many times.
Didnt really stay in hotel that much as was at wedding, but bed was comfy and slept very well in it!
Breakfast was simple but tasty

You cannot find a better location for visiting Volterra than The Hotel San Lino. While it's staff were professional and attentive (not the bubbly B&B kind) but we were very happy with our accommodations.

This hotel is a wonderful venue for your Volterra stay: it is central and easily accessible (enter the NO ENTRY! Medieval gate and within metres you are there). The rooms were fine (basic to high quality) with a great swimming pool, lookout (that can easily double as a work-out / yoga area), and a great breakfast setting. Super friendly staff and handy parking.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the pool side.

Oct 29 and Oct 30, 2011 we stayed at Hotel San Lino in Volterra. We loved the hotel. It is a convent converted into a hotel which made it even more interesting. We had superior rooms which were very nice and comfortable. The only negative was that the shower was a little hard to get into because of the door size. So overweight folks would have a problem here. But the big plus with this hotel is that they have covered parking available at 11 euros/night right next door.The hotel is located inside the city walls and a very short walk to all that is going on in this wonderful town. Breakfast was typical for Europe but again very nice. The girls at the front desk were very helpful and recommended some wonderful restaurants to us. Internet in the rooms was not available but a computer is available downstairs in the hotel free of charge. The hotel has a nice pool area which I am sure is lovely to use in the summer. And if you feel like going to mass, heck there is a church right next door for that purpose. I would recommend this hotel to anyone who needs a place to stay in Volterra.

We were there for 1 night and was because of its location. Good for families and walking distance everywhere. Its right smack in the middle of the ancient and very old town. Service was good, breakfast was enough. The only thing was that, according to the hotel website, it said that it has wi-fi but it didn't say in the rooms. So, beware, if your traveling depends on internet connection sometimes then make sure ask for a room that is nearer to the reception because only then you are able to be connected. We had a corner room right at the end of the building, so we are not connected to the world.
If internet connection is not needed then the hotel is perfect.
