“Living the Tuscan Dream”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2012

If you want to sample the idyllic dream of life in a medieval Tuscan village, a few days here are about as close as you can get without splashing out on a villa. You feel pretty special when you drive through the narrow gate into the town..just a little different to the tourists traipsing up the hill from the parking down below

The location is perfect for touring Sienna and the villages nearby.Try dinner in Scorgiana in the tiny cafe that spans the road at night. The hosts at the hotel are a local family with deep connections to the local wine industry.Take their advice on places to eat as they are well worth the drive.

Rooms are well equipped but would try to avoid the ones on the ground floor next to the road as passing walkers disturb your inevitable summer siesta!

Room Tip: Go for a room facing garden rather than street. Check that the medieval festival isn't on ( typi...

The hotel is in an historic building which dictates the size of the rooms. However, they are well appointed and the bathrooms were adequate - though the shower was a bit of a squeeze. Added bonus - there is a small pool which was a treat, set in a small but pretty garden where breakfast is served. Our room overlooked the street which was busy, but interesting as everyone was preparing for the Mediaeval festival that began the next day. Belongs now to a German chain - Romantik.

This hotel is in an amazing location in the center of Monteriggioni a tiny medieval town on the top of a small hill.

it is full of charme and it is worth to spend few days there. breakfast is good.

The swimmingpool is really small and the rooms are not generous in terms of sqm.

This is not a fancy hotel, but it is lovely and serene. The owner (Gigi) is a great host. It's a perfect spot from which to explore the Tuscan countryside.

This hotel sits right inside the walled citadel of Monteriggioni with its own parking and charming outdoor area with small pool and breakfast space which was always beautifully set. The entry area is very nicely decorated.The garden was also a good place to catch the late afternoon sun and have a glass of wine.
It is a lovely place to stay a couple of days and use as a base to explore the local area. The village gets very busy during the day but is peaceful to return to for an evening meal in the nearby piazza.
Our room was small but attractive and had a lovely view to the west but sounds from adjoining rooms intruded. The owners daughter is particularly helpful with good English.
Make sure you have clear directions after leaving the motorway as there are no signs due to local rules. Drive up and through the main gateway and across the piazza to the hotel.

My wife and I spend 5 nights at this lovely little hotel withing the walls of Monteriggioni.
The ancient building has been beatifully updated. Our bedroom was spacious and had a great view of the chianti hills. The breakfast was excellent each morning with fresh fruit and a beautiful presenation. No evening meal is served but excellent wine and light snacks are.
The staff was quite gracious with the owners very active and helpful.
Monteriggioni is a short drive from Sienna and less than 2 hours from Florence. We used it as a entral point for day trips throughout Tuscany.

We stayed for 4 nights at the Hotel Monteriggioni in mid-September. The hotel was very comfortable and nicely decorated. We particularly enjoyed the garden with a view of the medieval walls where breakfast is served each day. Owner Michael and everyone there were incredibly helpful and welcoming. We chose the hotel because it is located within the ancient hill town of Monteriggioni, and by staying at the hotel one is allowed to drive into the town and to experience its quiet and mystery after the day visitors are all gone. We dined all 4 nights within the town walls and enjoyed all the restaurants, but the best place there is Il Pozzo. Although many maps don't show it, there is a good and very direct road from Monteriggioni to Castellina in Chianti, making Monteriggioni an excellent base for exploring the Chianti region. We highly recommend this hotel.
