Spent week at Hotel Certaldo in August 2013 as a couple. Staff are very well trained and understand importance or smiling and being helpful - they have lots of information available. Certaldo makes great touring base for one of the prettiest areas of Tuscany, well within reach of San Gimignano, Volterra, Siena, Florence and Pisa. But you really need transport, we had hire car. Hotel is a converted mill and main building is very high quality with many original features. There are 2 other buildings which are work in progress, one houses a small but new gym. The rooms are very nicely appointed with tall ceilings (floor 2), windows to 2 sides, fridge, large shower room, where everything works, we were VERY comfortable. Despite being adjacent to the bypass the rooms were quiet, with controllable aircon. We had a few mossies in the room, but hunted them down, The breakfast is buffet style but all fresh and good selection plus waitress service for hot drinks (with smiles too). You can eat inside or out. At night you can wander through the "new" part of Certaldo which has little to inspire until you take the frequent Fenicular (€1.50 return) to Certaldo Alto (or 10 min uphill walk) which is another world. Historic buildings mostly used as restaurants, some with superb views over miles of Tuscan countryside. We sat and watched the moon rise while eating - very romantic. While Certaldo as a tourist destination is somewhat B list compared to San Gimignano and Volterra, the Hotel is certainly very A list and ideal if you want to come back to a quality oasis after a long day sight seeing. Parking is free - which shouldn't be taken for granted in Tuscany, the pool is not for swimmers - too short, but is pleasant to sit around sunbathing and to have the occasional cooling dip.

Room Tip: Room 203 had high ceilings and windows to 2 sides

Hotel Certaldo is a classy hotel in an ideal location to explore Tuscany, rooms are cool, clean and spacious, the breakfast is hearty and the swimming pool is a welcome relief after a days sight-seeing. The staff are extremely friendly, most helpful and knowledgeable, not just about the local area but the whole of Italy. A short 10 minute walk brings you to the centre of Certaldo, whether you go up the Funicular to Certaldo Alto or try one of the restaurants around the main square you really cannot go wrong. All serve quality food at reasonable prices.
Downsides to the hotel are the little extras that you have to pay should you want them; i.e. towels for the pool and charge for Wi-Fi but you can survive without the internet and the charges are small.

From the moment we arrived the hotel exceeded our expectations. The helpful and courteous staff, complementary glass of prosecco and spotless and well appointed rooms were all excellent. It is well located to explore the Tuscan countryside and the ease of catching the train to Florence and Sienna was an added bonus. Certaldo Alto, the medieval town about 10 minutes walk from the hotel, is a gem and undiscovered by the majority of tourists to the area which makes it a pleasure to visit. I do not hesitate to recommend Hotel Certaldo for really good value accommodation.

We have just returned from our second trip to Hotel Certaldo and will return. The hotel is excellently situated to explore Tuscany, by car and by train. Certaldo itself has a lovely local feel and we loved Certaldo Alto. The hotel is very comfortable, the rooms are very spacious and the pool and gardens are really nice. The outstanding point about the hotel are the staff, who are all very pleasant and very helpful. A great trip.

Room Tip: We were in the standard room, which suited us well.
