5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2012

The hotel staff - Giorgio and wife, are absolutely fantastic. They are very friendly persons. Apartments and rooms are comfortable and rustical - in Tuscan style, with bathrooms. They were clean. The beds are comfy. The breakfast was good. The location is excellent for touring - specialy for bikers, its very near center of Firence.

Georgio was a wonderful host: welcoming, helpful, and always ready to crack a joke. His German is better than his English, but both are better than my Italian! Even so, the essentials of communication were not a problem. Breakfasts surpassed our expectations: not just the usual coffee and pastries, but freshly cooked scrambled eggs (often with ham), a choice of fruit, cereals, yoghurt, cold meats and cheese, juices. We gratefully fuelled up for the touring day ahead.

For evening meals or lunch, the osteria next door is very handy, with helpful service and decent food. Another restaurant is a five minute walk down the road (but without a footpath, so be careful). The hotel has a couple of barbecues, which we used one evening, and Georgio kindly supplied the necessary utensils, plates, glasses, etc.

Our family room was very comfortable for four, although the air conditioning was a bit under-powered for the July heat; a ceiling fan would have been nicer and more effective. Although the wi-fi didn’t quite stretch to our apartment, it was much more pleasant to step out into the cool shade of the patio for relaxing, reading and catching up online. The fridge was a useful feature in the small kitchen area of our room, although if you want to cook on the two hot plates, you would need to source your own cookware.

The kids really enjoyed the above-ground pool, which was a great place to cool off after a hard day’s sight-seeing. There is a public sports centre next door, with a larger pool and opportunities for tennis, etc. if you’re feeling more energetic.

If you have a car, the hotel serves as an excellent base for trips to Florence, Siena, San Gimingnano, etc., all reachable in under an hour. Even if you’re without wheels, there is a bus stop right outside on the main road to Florence (about 45 minutes away for 2.8 Euros). There are also two train stations within a fifteen minute taxi ride. The town of Montespertoli itself is five minutes away by car or bus, with several eating establishments, shops and supermarket.

We really enjoyed our stay here, made special by Georgio’s friendly attention to his guests’ needs.

Room Tip: The AC in our room struggled with the July heat, making sleep uncomfortable at times. Leaving window...

The hotel staff and rooms were absolutely fantastic. I was in charge of a high school group of 45. Keep in mind, the group is told not to expect gourmet food. However, there should be at least normal portions. For our only diner meal (a one night stay), we were served a typical Italian pasta as a starter. The mail course consisted of perhaps a large tablespoon size portion of eggplant and a chicken nugget size piece of pork, that is if the nugget wasn't actually a piece of bone with a couple strands of meat. There were some assorted pastries for dessert. In 15 years of traveling with students this was the Number 1 worst meal I've seen. To be fair to the hotel, if you were a regular guest, ordering from the hotel menu, I'm sure you would have adequate portions of average quality.

Received exactly what we were promised. A comfortable apartment for a family of 4 with kitchenette and private bathroom. Both kitchen and bath quite small but fine for us. Beds firm and comfy. Room rustic in the Tuscan style and spotlessly clean. Kids tried to have a swim in the full size, above-ground pool but, uncharacteristically, the weather didn't cooperate. Typical breakfast as is generally included at budget places in in Italy (ie, good caffe, packaged pastries & jams) but with a nice touch: dry cereal and some fruit also offered, which my children especially appreciated. Free parking on site, nice grounds, excellent location for touring Tuscany and its many attractions and festivals. Staff cordial and efficient. Super value.

  • Liked — value, comfort, setting
  • Disliked — minor complaint: pool wans't fully open yet (mostly a weather related issue)
