“The Perfect Tuscan Town”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 2, 2012

We were absolutely delighted with a last minute change in our plans; instead of crowded, dark Sienna, we found our way to the most welcoming, lovely home staffed by genuinely happy, friendly folks in the perfect small Tuscan hill town. We had visited Montepulciano and Pienza before but somehow missed San Quirico; now it would be our first choice - for the town itself, as well as the location. The town is immaculate - amazing really considering the history here. The residents are truly friendly -- it is not too large, the streets are not too steep - we said to one shop owner, Wow, it is perfect here! She smilingly said, not too perfect though, people actually Really live here -- there are services within the town for the residents, who stroll up and down the charming main (almost car free) street in the evening, the kids hang out in the quite impressive garden, it is just what you would hope to stumble upon in a Tuscan town.
The hotel itself is beautiful -- our room was authentic, yet updated, with a terrific bathroom, great shower - not always the case! Very comfortable bed, pillows, etc. Wifi in the rooms, and really terrific food -- tea and cake in the afternoon, I think the wonderful pastries were from the cute shop in town. Really great breakfast, oh my. And for dinner -- head around the little lane behind the hotel and find the restaurant with torches lining the street -- perfect beef, beans, all of the Tuscan specialties you would expect; very nice wine and again, friendly friendly people.
I can't forget to thank Coco, the bellman at the hotel -- once you meet this kind soul, you'll understand -- as amazing as the scenery, history, food and oh my the wine are here, it is the people who remain in your heart and the people who call you back to this beautiful special part of the world.

I spent a night is this lovely hotel. The room was so romantic and all done in yellow. There was a big jacuzzi tub in the room. Each room is different. The hotel offers tea and cookies at 4 pm. Breakfast is included in the morning and mainly pastries.
The town is a fun little town to explore and enjoy dinner. The gardens with this hotel are beautiful and a great place to go with your cup of tea and enjoy a relaxing moment. I purchased some skin care products in their shop that are made in Italy and loved the face cream.
If you are looking for a romantic stop this is your place.

My husband an I stayed at Palazzo del Capitano for our 20th Wedding Anniversary - as first timers to Italy. We had discovered the hotel very fortunately on the internet and we were not disappointed. This is the place to come to completely relax and enjoy a special getaway. The whole environment is geared toward relaxation. We thoroughly enjoyed our in-suite jaccuzzi tub, as well as our special spa treatments - excellent! Thank you Katushka. The suite was not large but very comfortable and had everything we needed. The olive oil soap and special toiletries are so nice (fabulous lotion and eye creme) - we made sure to purchase some special things to bring home from their spa store. The garden - was so lovely and a perfect place to sit and enjoy a glass of wine (and cake). We enjoyed tea time, the breakfast room, which was so comfortable and the pastries, breakfast foods and cappuccino were delicious. The restaurant is exceptional - Trattoria al Vecchio Forno - a lovely romantic evening stroll from your room. Our only disappointment was that the restaurant was closed on Wednesday and we had to dine elsewhere. A special grazie to Lara and the front desk team, the Breakfast room team,the helpful and patient servers at the Vecchio Forno and Coco! We are already dreaming of returning.

My wife booked this place on our travels through Tuscany. What a surprise to find this hidden gem. Everything about this place, the hotel, the town, the food, the staff you name it was fantastic! After spending all day everyday for 2 weeks on my feet walking from one tourist attraction to another this was a welcome break to put my feet up out in the garden, indulge in a massage and eat some great meals! Thanks to all involved in making our short stay so enjoyable.

This hotel is situated in a lovely small town in Italy
Very quaint
They welcome you and are very attentive, afternoon tea/ snacks brilliant
Rooms are basic and the sheets and blankets perhaps not the best , a bit tired perhaps
The friendliness is the best part
Breakfast is excellent
I would stay here again because there is so much to do and they are nice folk but would like a bit better room with nice sheets and blankets and pillow

Excellent hotel, the service was oustanding, the staff is amazing and extremely supportive. We were there with my two and half months old son and we felt that all our needs were met. The room was excellent. The breackfast was very good with all selected local produces and an amazing home made jam tart. We will definitively return!

We had the opportunity to visit San Quirico again and stayed a second time at Palazzo del Capitano. This s a great hotel in a sleepy hill town and we love it. The rooms, gardens, hotel restaurant, staff and atmosphere are the best, in our opinion. My wife and I stayed in their large Tuscany style suite the first time and it was fabulous. My daughter and I each had a single room this visit and the rooms are obviously smaller but very comfortable with AC. The hotels restaurant , a short walk from the hotel, is the best on our trip and we would have eaten there a second time but they are closed on Wednesdays. The village is quite but charming and easily taken in on a cool morning stroll. I especially like the town's winery at the bottom of the main street where you can buy a bottle of good wine for 5-10 Euros. Being there on Market day is fun. No crowds in this place and a relaxing hotel to enjoy. Short day trips to Montalcino, Pienza, Montepulciano, and especially Monticchiello (a hidden gem) are great. The hotel's gardens behind the building are a place to sit back and enjoy the flowers, hot tub, birds, vine shaded seating areas. It doesn't get much better than this!

Room Tip: This is our favorite hotel in Tuscany!
