“great value hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 3, 2012

The Alcide hotel is clean and comfortable and is great value for money. The staff are helpful and friendly. Poggibonsi is ideal to get to San Giminano, Siena and other hill towns. The town has good facilities, nice shops and good restaurants. We would definitely stay at the Alcide again

Dear Katy,
I thank you for your words of appreciation we have been working very hard to rise the standard of our quality of the service trying not to rise the price of the rooms with simple things that have great conversion feedbacks!

I wish you a great beginning of the year!
My best,
Marco Rossi

Average hotel. Very close to San Gimignano which is the main advntage. Fair price. Nice rooms but small bathroom. Very nice breakfast with wide assortment. Free parking. 15 min. walk from the pedestrian area with restaurants. Good base for Tuscany trip.

Good position near main interesting places in Tuscany: Siena and Florence and San Gimignano or Volterra. Room quite comfortable, not extremely clean. Great breakfast in the morning. Free parking, but attention to the road cleaning works. Good value for money

This is a good hotel perfectly located if you wish to explore the main sights of Tuscany. The town of Poggibonsi itself offers some cafes and restaurants and the restaurant in the hotel is also very good. The amenities are average, the rooms are very clean while breakfast is below average. It is excellent value for money.

Room Tip: Avoid rooms facing the street.

We've been at this hotel in september and everything was perfect:
- The price of € 30,00 for a room with a bathroom, Tv, Air condition and free wi-fi (it was a Booking Flash Deal);
- The room very clean;
- The excellent breakfast;
- The helpfully staff who help us to visit Tuscany and made of this hotel the best place to stay to visit San Gimignano, Volterra, Siena and Florence

we stayed at hotel alcide during a recent trip through italy. mind that this review was written by a person in their 20s, some impressions ive had might be perceived differently by people of different age.

anyhow, the first impression was rather disappointing. the outside of the hotel building looked as if somehow, while we were driving there we hit a wormhole and got shot back into the seventies. not even the good ones. what i want to say is, the hotel looked like a gigantic concrete block with wrinkles (although symmetric ones) from the outside. rather disappointing.

anyway, the seventies flair didnt change after we got inside, although it felt different. the lobby of the hotel was (obviously) designed during the same age, but it looked rather fancy and had something like passed grandeur about it.

the other people staying at the place were rather 70s as well, what i wanna say is that they were in their seventies and rather old.

anyway, when we got to our room we discovered that it looked really nice and was big enough plus the bathroom looked really good. the service left nothing to worry about which is the most important thing after all. oh yeah, and it was really cheap, each one of us paid around 22€/night.

altogether i have to say, nice rooms, good service, great price, the looks of the hotel are a matter of taste and in this aspect my view is very subjective but i can imagine that most (younger) people are a bit put off by the first impression. not a bad place though.

My husband and I stayed here for one night while passing through the Tuscany area. Our room and bathroom were very clean and cool. True, the room is smallish but for the price you can't beat it. The man at the reception desk was very nice and directed us to visit San Giminiano, a nearby medieval city which was well worth the short, 11 km trip. It is also possible to visit Greve in Chianti during the day, do a wine tasting, etc. then drive over to Alcide for the night and visit San Gim in the morning. The breakfast was amazing; a buffet style with pastries, vegetables, eggs, yogurt, etc. I would say this hotel was the best value of our trip!
