This B&B is located in the heart of the small town of Montalcino. It was great for walking around and exploring the whole town. The B&B itself is all stairs like most places in Italy with no elevator so travel light. The room was rustic Tuscano style with basic amenities and great toiletries. Breakfast was also generous and quite tasty. The free valet parking was a pleasant surprise. The location of this little B&B is really the best part about it and the price is pretty reasonable for Europe.
We had mixed feelings about the service which is why I gave it 4/5 rating. If I had written this review during the stay I might have considered a 3/5 rating. The odd couple that runs the place can be unpleasant by customer service standards. We had dinner here one night and the food was ok. We had maybe one glass of wine left in our bottle from our day trip and was told rather rudely we cannot drink it in the restaurant. Honestly, we would not have been offended if told nicely that they do not allow you to bring your own wines. Part of the mixed feelings comes from this dining experience. FYI The pizza place down the street is fabulous and we were able to enjoy a whole bottle of wine there. To be balanced in my criticism, we were rather happy that they were able to let us come a day earlier than planned.
Overall, we enjoyed our stay in the city and the location of this B&B was great. We would stay here again.
