“A very enjoyable stay”
Reviewed August 18, 2014

A very good hotel set in a fascinating town. We arrived quite late in the evening and the staff were immediately very welcoming and helpful in explaining the layout and facilities of the hotel. We were straightaway shown a map which identified the hotel's location in the town. It is very well situated. We were also shown the positions of interesting sites in the town. Our room was quite small but very well designed. The pool looked excellent but it was still a little cool to take the plunge. We thoroughly enjoyed going beyond the pool to a little terrace that is quite a sun trap with excellent views over the countryside. Breakfast was very good with lots of choice. It is buffet style and staff were constantly replenishing where necessary.

Being one of the few places to stay within the towns walls, it was a great location. Paid the extra to park the car in the nearby car park, and left it there for the few days we stayed. Was able to walk everyhere we needed in Volterra. Shops, restaurants and sites were not far away at all.
Hotel was clean, it wasn't hot, but we did manage to do a spot of sunbathing by the pool which was lovely. The terrace at the end on the city wall was an amazing location for a drink and take in the views.
Staff were incredibly friendly, we arrived slightly early and were pleased our room was ready. We were also allowed and early breakfast on our day of departure to accomodate the time we needed to get to the airport.
Would definately recommend and would stay again. Would also recommend a meal in Volterra at 'Del Duca' an amazing meal with amazing wines.

Room Tip: We had a room overlooking the pool/courtyard wiht a little terrace. Nice and quiet.

The hotel is fine for a night or two if touring volterra but I wouldn't want to make a weeks holiday of it. Unfortunately the weather was wet and cold when we were there so were unable to utilise the pool, which infact could have made a difference. The staff on the front desk were lovely, welcoming and very helpful. I wouldn't recommend eating there as there are some fabulous little places in town with a lot more atmosphere. But a nice clean hotel in a great location

Lovely little hotel with very friendly staff. My husband used the pool which is very clean and on a lovely terrace. Our family stayed in the quadruple room which was very spacious. Excellent location as it is just inside the walled town so easily walkable to lots of restaurants. (Hotel has its own restaurant too). Very professional staff who are extremely helpful.

A lovely hotel set in an excellent location. We arrived in the early afternoon on bicycles and were made to feel very welcome, spending an hour by the pool with some cool drinks! There was secure parking inside the hotel for our bikes, even a pump was provided. Rooms were very comfortable and spacious, the pool was super and the breakfast was very good.
Would certainly recommend this hotel.

We had a nice break staying at the San Lino Hotel in Volterra during June 2014. We booked 3 rooms and they were all good. The shower was very small in my room & the bathroom smelt of gas for some reason so we just left the window open. The pool area was nice, but unfortunately we did not get a chance to swim. The breakfast was excellent & they served the best lemon cake I ate during our entire holiday in Italy. It was great to have a carpark nearby that went with the hotel as we had a rental car. We walked up to the main square at night & up across the square to the left corner was a restaurant with tables outside. I cannot remember the name, but we ate here twice & it was excellent food, wine & service. Probably one of the friendliest places we ate at. I would stay here again to explore nearby villages if I was lucky enough.
