If you are a fan of Tuscany and dream about those beautiful rolling hills, this is your place. The hotel transpires charm and you won't even pay too much attention to the old rooms.
The bathroom is OK and like most of Italy, the towels smell vinegar. Like I said, the room needs update: the bed head board MUST go NOW. But if you were looking for a great hotel room for low cost you could have stayed in the interior of Wisconsin, right? You came here for the magic, and this hotel delivers that and more. :-)
Breakfast is good and the staff is really friendly, but not in a rush (nothing wrong with that).
We had certain difficulty finding the hotel as the GPS was outdated and showed it at a different place. Even if the address says "Poggibonsi", this hotel is not technically in Poggibonsi, but in Localita San Lucchese. it is located right beside the Church of San Lucchese, more on the country side, off a park.
The hotel is gay friendly but we haven't seen any other gays there when we were there.
If you are looking to see the sunflowers, you need to go between May and August only.
