“excellent view, good rooms, poor food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2012

The room was comfortable and had a balcony with great view (not all the rooms hav a balcony and view). Nice swimmingpool, but you have to wear a bathing cap (which you can buy at the reception desk). We were friendly received by the receptionstaff and had diner at the hotel. They served just the day-menu (so no choice), and we were disappointed by the quality of the food. In Italy absolutely the worst culinary experience. The seat of my husband cracked during diner (he is not a heavy weight), which can happen, but we were surprised to find out they put back the same seat for breakfast (when he again fell down, because it wasn't repaired properly). Weird kind of humour? In short: If you just sleep here and manage to get a room with a view, it is worth a stay, but eat somewhere else.

We spent a week in San Quirico d'Orcia, renting an apartment in town. It was very hot and our home had no air conditioning. However, the Hotel Palazzuolo lets you use their beautiful pool at a daily rate. We would return from sightseeing in the afternoons and head over to the hotel for a few hours of cooling off from the 90 degree heat. They were very friendly, and there is wi-fi in the lobby.

We stayed for a week , on a walking tour with HF holidays, the hotel could not have been better, We are vegetarian and gluten intolerant and the cook made special meals for us and accomodated us at breakfast with gluten free bread etc. The staff are english speaking and very pleasant and helpful. The rooms were clean and comfortable, and the holiday was the best I have had for a while. The pool is not heated, but was very refreshing after a day of walking

Room Tip: main floor overlooking the pool and a wonderful view.

We booked for 4 nights in spite of some negative reviews on Trip Advisor. After a few hours in the hotel we decided to extend our stay, and never regretted the decision. As a two star hotel, Palazzuolo offers terrific value; we had a newly refurbished room with a private balcony and use of the open air swimming pool (still warm enough in late September!). The buffet breakfast was ample and varied, and the restaurant also provided an optional evening meal. Service was friendly, helpful and very competent, both at the desk and in the restaurant. Although bus tours came and went, we were never aware of any reduction in the quality of service, whether the hotel was quiet or filled with enthusiastic groups of walkers or cyclists. We found the area around San Quirico full of interest, and the town itself offered a range of excellent restaurants. Above all, the setting offers a marvellous location for exploring southern Tuscany.

Room Tip: Ask for a balcony. All have good views.

A small but friendly hotel, with a swimming pool, in southern Tuscany. very good value. It is just outside the village walls but has lovely gardens and you can walk to the countryside from it. The hotel will make you a packed lunch if required too.A very central location for visiting several hilltop towns.

Room Tip: The bedrooms facing poolside have wonderful views across the garden and Tuscan landscape.

Conveniently located Palazzuolo is a great place to unwind during a busy tour of Tuscany. The friendly, efficient staff immediately made us feel welcome and the property is full of family-style charm. We cooled off at the large, attractive pool that had many comfortable lounge chairs. Later our room's balcony provided a great vista of the countryside at dusk. Dinner on the restaurant's patio was a romantic delight and we enjoyed the local specialties -- especially stuffed eggplant. Also we appreciated our friendly server, Dolores. Breakfast in the morning provided a delicious start to get us back on the road to more marvels of Tuscany. Great value for price. Bottom line: a top recommendation.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with balcony overlooking the pool (and countryside).

Our stay in this hotel in May / June 2012 was very enjoyable. The new cook was on fine form with imaginative choices of Tuscan fare on offer at dinner - very well cooked and nicely presented. Breakfasts were also good: fresh fruit, yogurt, bread, preserves and cakes were all sampled and enjoyed. Cold meats, cheese and eggs were also on offer.
The staff were helpful and friendly at all times. Our bedroom was clean and comfortable (although in need of redecoration) with a new modern bathroom. No shortage of hot water, clean towels and other bathroom provisions.
We would happily stay here again.
