Hotel Ghibellino
Ranked #3 of 4 Hotels in Buonconvento
Reviewed May 13, 2013

We only stayed there one night during our walking tour of Tuscany, but were pleased with the large and comfortable room and the excellent service. The hotel is fairly new, so the room and bathroom were decorated in modern style, which was a surprise in Italy. Breakfast was good. The staff were friendly and very helpful. I would recommend this hotel.

Stayed: April 2013, traveled as a couple

Our room was comfortable and well appointed and the staff friendly and welcoming. The hotel is modern and rather bland but comfortable and well situated in Buonconvento. It is let down by un underwhelming breakfast served in an underground room. However, they do serve proper coffee on request!

was visiting for a wedding over the weekend. staff were friendly and very happy to make the many changes i unfortunately had to make. the hotel is in the very centre of the town which is great if you don't want to have to drive also in the evening for dinner!

This is a very convenient hotel to stay in while touring Tuscany. The rooms, though sparse, are very clean and comfortable. The staff is wonderful and very accommodating. I would definitely stay at this hotel again.

Room Tip: Stay on the first floor, if possible.

At least the location of this hotel is good - right in the center of the cozy little village of Buonconvento. That's about it though. Rooms are clean but horribly unpersonal - there's nothing on the walls, nothing to make the place a little bit cozier. Kind of felt like a hospital room. The hospital feeling continued down in the breakfast room, where a waitress (that must hate her job very much) was basically throwing cups and cutlery on the tables, making the whole place so noisy that you had to have breakfast as quick as possible in order to get away from the noise.

Warm welcome from Fredericka the receptionist who spoke excellent English. Nice large bedroom with an equally large bathroom. The sheets were wonderfully clean and crisp, comfortable bed with extra blankets available which we did need to make use of, could have done with some extra pillows, none available in the room but I'm sure Fredericka would have arranged some if we'd asked as she was very helpful.

There is a sun terrace on the top floor, unfortunately we weren't able to make use of this during our stay due to bad weather but I'm sure it would be a nice bonus to relax on the sun loungers and read a book in the sunshine.

Buonconvento is a beautiful mediaeval town with one main street and the hotel was a new addtion at the end of this street so very convienently situated for bars and restaurants.

Breakfast sadly was a bit of a let down, the usual continental style but rolls were brought out a few at a time and were gone as soon as they were on the table as were the ham and cheese slices. No fruit available at all which was unusual and a shame.

Saying that we enjoyed our stay and wouldn't hesitate to go back there.
