“hotel ok, dinner terrible!”
Reviewed August 7, 2007

We stayed in the hotel for one week, and besides dinner we have no remarks. The room was big and beautiful, every day well cleaned. We even had a jacuzzi without asking and with no extra cost! Personnel is friendly, swimming pool is big and there are enough seats at the pool or in the garden. There is indeed a motorway just in front of the hotel, but it did not bother us (only some background noise). The main problem is dinner... Our travel agent (Jetair) only offered half board, so we were obliged to have dinner in the hotel's restaurant every evening, but I would definitely advise tourists against doing that!!!!! Unfriendly service and really bad food! The first course was every evening the same, pasta with tomato sauce (no spices, no vegetables).... The main dish was every evening meat (3 times beef), very greasy and salty! The so called mixed vegetables were some leafs of lettuce and a minuscule piece of tomato... When you wanted chips or potatoes, you had to pay 3.5€ extra for a very small amount (which was cold most of the times). One evening there was schnitzel which was still frozen!! Dessert was a very very small piece of cake, which was 3 of the 7 times still frozen... Wines are expensive for such a poor quality restaurant (14€ is the cheapest) and white wines were most of the times not cooled... So to conclude, I can say that the hotel is ok but please just book B&B and go eating elsewhere in the evening!

Reviewed May 3, 2006

I have spent three days at the hotel, with the intent to explore Siena countryside. The room was spacious and clean, well furnished and warm. but I was deeply disappointed by the location of the hotel, that is just on the side of a motorway! When you are escaping from a crowded city, you ask for a place of silence and peace! Breakfast was disappointingly inadequate indeed, and please avoid the on site restaurant, that is quite expensive and offers food of extremly meagre quality. We have found excellent restaurant in Siena (e.g. Ristorante Il Sasso) and in the countryside. To sum up the building and the room are nice, beautifully decorated and characteristic, but the location and the restaurant aren't worth the money you pay for. I would recommend the hotel only if you are on the way to Siena or to Florence and you can't drive a mile more.

What a wonderful respite in the middle of the countryside near Siena! We came upon this as we were driving around lost, and were welcomed in the middle of the night (literally) by the wonderful host, Ignazio (I believe, was his name). Not only were we shown to a beautiful bedroom, larger than any I've ever stayed in Italy, but he prepared plates of meats and bread for us, since we were famished, and at 3 am had long missed dinner. At that time they were building a pool to make it more resort-like. You would need a car to get around, or even reach the property, likely, but it is such a beautiful place that it's worth going out of the way. The room we stayed in was completely clean, with a nice bathroom and shower, furnished nicely in a country Italian style; very classic, but not at all shabby. What a lovely experience! I would highly recommend this!
