Hotel has a very nice location / great starting point to visit Siena, Florence, ... Casole d'Elsa is a nice town to visit / have dinner.
The accommodation is correct (clean, nice outdoor pool, parking, ...), but old / cheap (plastic chairs, uncomfortable, rusty, ...). The service was very basic (hard to call the staff friendly, not sharing lot of info, do not really see work, have to wait long, ...) and the breakfast was a real disgrace (limited offer, canned fruits, horrible bread, cold eggs/bacon, tasteless, full of flies, ...). I used to backpack a lot & in many hostels the food / service was actually better!
So, okay to stay there, but manage your expectations & use it mainly as a starting point to do daytrips...
