    this hotel was a disaster,we booked 4 nights and left after 1 night. Only postive is location (near town centre) and free parking BUT... Arrival: no warm welcoming, no info about breakfast (when? where?), just handing over key and that's it. Room: not maintained, dirty, bed almost falling apart and very squeeky, broken furniture, no airco(!). Bathroom: tiny, not maintained, no towels, but napkins. Swimming pool : dirty, not maintained, broken longchairs, only 3 parasols available, 2 broken. Hotel says to have own restaurant but even the owner ate take away pizza. Breakfast: very poor (prepacked stuff + just some fresh cheese and ham), no orange juice (machine broken => then put a bottle or something !) We know Italians don't have breakfast, but foreign guests do! And I don't suppose you run a hotel for yourself

    We stayed here this year in mid September. The room was a good size although the shower was quite small. We stayed for a Friday and Saturday night and although there was a reception on Saturday we were not bothered by any noise. The grounds were very pretty and the views were fantastic. We did eat dinner at their restaurant the first evening and although their sauces were very good my venison was way overcooked and the desserts were a disappointment. The tiramisu was a pudding with no cake in it at all.
    I would recommend this hotel as the staff very helpful, the rooms were clean and a good size and the view was wonderful.

    We stayed at this hotel for two nights as part of a Rick Steves' tour group. The rooms are large and comfortable, once you figure out how to lock and unlock the double French doors. The bath is tiny and has limited shelf space for toiletries for two women, but adequate. Breakfast is quite good and the staff were helpful. Some of our group imposed on the manager by bringing their own bottle of wine and asking him to supply a bottle opener and glasses for friends. You could tell he would have preferred they used a bottle from his cellar , but he was a good sport and supplied the requested materials at no charge and with no complaints. I considered him to be quite a good sport and the flexibility he demonstrated reflected positively on the establishment. There is a beautiful swimming pool and grounds at the hotel that really add to the ambiance of the place.

    The biggest negative of the hotel--it lies outside the walls of Volterra and quite a ways down a hill. The exercise was good for everyone as we went in and out of town, but initially our bus could not reach the hotel; although we were able to roll our bags down the hill on check-in, we were quite worried about how to get everything back up the hill to the bus. Again, the hotel management were flexible and supplied a van to bring everyone's bags to a site several blocks over where the bus could meet the group and no one was required to climb a steep hill. There was no WiFi available and only a single PC for internet access that was relatively expensive.

    Hotel is down a steep hill from town but not as difficult as I had anticipated from other reviewers. Buy wireless access when you arrive since you get a 3 hour card for a couple of Euro which you can use at different sessions. All the balcony rooms were taken but we still had a great view over the countryside from our large windows. The breakfast is terrific and the area is down in an old wine cellar with a warm, hunting lodge feel. They have a bar near the reception desk from which they'll pour you a nightcap (very cheaply charged to your room) at most any hour. We had a car, so free parking was a plus

    We stayed at the Villa Nencini for 3 nights in early September 2008 and thoroughly enjoyed the experience.
    On entering Volterra from the south by road you are suddenly confronted by a large number of signposts pointing in various directions to individual hotels, and unless you spot your particular hotel immediately you will miss the turn off. Luckily we managed to spot the sign for Villa Nencini which is slightly downhill from the walls surrounding Volterra.
    There is a large free public carpark just outside the hotel, but as Volterra is a popular town for daytrippers if you arrive in the middle of the day there is a possibility you will find it hard to park in the vicinity of the hotel. We were extremely lucky and managed to find the last space.
    As mentioned in previous reviews the owners and staff manning the reception do not speak a lot of English, but were so friendly and welcoming I cannot understand how people can be upset by this. Our room was huge and on the first floor overlooking the pool under the eaves with a sloping roof. A large window with shutters looked out onto a breathtaking view over the distant, misty hills, and a rocking chair was perfectly placed to enjoy this. The weather was scorching at the time of our visit and the room was extremely hot as it did not have air-conditioning, however by closing the window and shutters during the day this kept the temperature to a bearable level.
    There was not a lot of choice at breakfast, which was the only negative point to mention about our stay.
    The pool looked inviting, but there was too much to see in the area to waste valuable sightseeing time sitting around a pool.
    The centre of Volterra is a ten minute walk uphill and has a good selection of restaurants. Our favourite restaurant was Il Sacco Fiorentino. but I had an unfortunate experience of being locked in the toilet for half an hour as the door would not open and no one in the restaurant could hear me banging on the door. Amusing now, but scary at the time.
    Would return to the Villa Nencini without a doubt.
