“Great Food”
Reviewed September 24, 2013

We were on a walking holiday and stayed in the Hotel for a week. The location is just on the edge of the village and an easy walk to the shops and local supermarket. The grounds are pretty with a good sized pool (unheated) The rooms are basic, good for sleeping and showering but not for a honeymoon ! Everywhere is very clean. The breakfast is fine, no eggs and bacon but a good wholesome selection of everything else. The fruit juice and coffee are just about acceptable.

However the evening meal made up for any shortcomings. 4 courses of straightforward very good Italian dishes. Well prepared, tasty and nicely served. And the house wine is excellent and only 5 euros a half carafe.

Room Tip: As for a balcony overlooking the pool. Be very nice to the staff. Their English os OK but if you smi...

Perfect, beautiful location. the view from the pool amazing. great location to be in if you want to be able to travel in Tuscany without changing hotels. Staff had a bit of a difficulty understanding English (maybe the accents) but were still able to help and guide us. Good selection for breakfast.
There were too many bugs in the room but I cant blame the hotel it was summer. but they should have insect killer in the rooms.

TIP:- Take a swimming cap with you because you cant swim without it. (apparently its a norm there but we didn't know)

We came from Positano that day, had driven some 500 km and were late for lunch. However, the nice gentleman offered us light lunch immediately, salad, cheeses, ham and a nice bottle of wine. After that we relaxed by the pool that is big enough to have a proper swim. Dinner was great, service was excellent and the rooms were quite large, everything was clean and nice.

We experienced one of the most beautiful sunsets one could imagine in Toscana.

I would recommend this place for families with children.

Room Tip: Our rooms were on the first floor that is on the ground level. However, we had to walk up to the re...

Very good location in Tuscany between Montepulciano and Montalchino and adjacent to the beautiful Pienza.
Food was quite good. Not gourmet but good.
Rooms are spacious and efficient.
Very good hot water stream in all rooms.
Dining room not so romantic to my taste.

Room No. 47 was dark with closed shutters. Floor needed cleaning. Very good supply of towels and toilet paper. Restaurant serving staff was excellent. Dinner food selections, by Italian standards, were uninspiring, but the continental breakfasts were generous and varied with large pots of coffee on each table!

Each guest had to carry her own luggage to and from the room, up/down stairs. Nice library area for reading and large patio overlooking large pool. Weather was too cool for swimming during my stay.

Room Tip: Avoid rooms over the kitchen as they are noisy early in A.M. when kitchen staff arrives. Was kept a...

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.
