“Great central location in Montalcino”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 27, 2013

This is not a destination hotel, but it is a great location for visiting the Brunello di Montalcino vineyards. The staff are very friendly and helpful. There is free parking nearby. The breakfasts are very good and if the weather is fine breakfast can be taken on the terrace. The pool is small but in a lovely position. Wifi slow but free. After reading other reviews we booked a superior room with a small balcony and the views really are to die for. Incredible. Worth the extra 20 euros!

Room Tip: Pay the extra and get a superior room with a view.

The hotel itself is ok. Rooms are spacious but nothing special: service is fine. Air con is working very slowly. The best thing about the hotel is however the amazig view, especially from the pool! Free parking is provided closeby.

We "always" stay here when we visit Montalcino. It is the view, the pool and the location that brings us back. The staff is friendly, particularly in the breakfast cafe. This time, the man on the night watch was very helpful when we wanted to enjoy a glass of wine on the terrace before going to bed. He made a difference this time.

An advice to the hotel management is to have the reception staff being a bit more attentive to the guests instead of "hiding" behind the desk. They are friendly but not very accommodating unless approached.

Had a great visit here. Wonderful location and we were given great restaurant tips. Montalcino is such a quaint town Gorgeous view and decent air conditioning. Breakfast was a nice Italian buffet. Would stay here again.

We have just returned from a four night stay at Dei Capitani. If you're looking for five star opulence and expensive prices then this isn't the place for you. If you want one of the best views from your balcony and matching view from the pool then you can't beat this hotel.
Friendly staff, good buffet breakfast, breathtaking views and great value for money. Oh and its located in the fantastic hilltop town of Montalcino. Loved every minute and wish I was still there.

Lovely small hotel overlooking amazing vistas of the Tuscan hills. Gorgeous swimming pool and delightful breakfast buffet which is served under umbrellas on the veranda/ patio overlooking the hills. The room itself opened to a small french style balcony( meaning, one person can stand on it!) but the view is breathtaking. The furnishings are simple, room was clean and bathroom small. Shower in the bathroom was an interesting size and entry but adequate.

Parking is at a premium in this hilly village but the front desk staff were terrific directing us exactly where to park. The value for this room and breakfast was excellent!

Staff was kind and accommodating and made excellent recommendations for dining. Stay here if you want an amazing view and don't worry about big city hotel creature comforts...not needed here ....with the amazing Tuscan countryside, fields of sunflowers, olive trees, grapevines and delicious food and wines around every corner!

We will definitely be back.

Room Tip: Ask for a room overlooking the pool/ Tuscan hills.

This hotel is in a wonderful town - Montalcino. The atmosphere is pure Tuscan Hill town mixed with Brunello wine and the views from the terrace of the hotel take some beating.
Our room wasn't the best hotel room being on two levels and quite spartan but as we only stayed for one night it wasn't really a problem, if we had wanted to stay longer I think I would have asked for a room in the hotel proper. The breakfast on the terrace overlooking the Val D'Orcia was a delight.
There is free parking but after unloading our cases in front of the hotel we then had to hunt around a couple of car parks in Montalcino before we found a place.
Small quibbles because I would happily return to the Hotel dei Capitani
