We had such great expectations of this hotel, particularly given its member status as one of the leading hotels of the world, which has in the past served as helpful benchmark in choosing a property. However in this instance, this proved an entirely wrong decision as our stay here was disappointing and underwhelming. Our first impression certainly wasn't helped by... More

The hotel and spa are situated on a lovely property in buildings that once house and 11th century monastery. Those buildings have been converted into multiple hotel rooms scattered throughout the various buildings, two Gordon Ramsay restaurants, a bar/lounge, the hotel offices, and a beautiful wellness spa. The original chapel remains and is in use. The buildings are centered around... More

Just had a stay at the Castel Monastero , this place is situated in the Tuscan countryside alongside some of the best Chianti wine yards in Italy and just outside of Siena. If you want a quiet exclusive stay in an old monastery then this is the place to stay. They have two restaurants , one in an old cavern... More

It has the ingredients but it doesn't deliver. We had an unfortunate experience with lackluster service and our very badly appointed room. We couldn't wait to leave. There are many beautiful warm welcoming places in Tuscany. This is not one of them.

Graziella A, Direttore at Castel Monastero, responded to this review

Dear leka, I am very sorry you had this impression of Castelmonastero . That none of the three suites you were shown met with your approval leads me to believe Castelmonastero wasn't what you were looking for. I am sorry our Hotel did not meet with your expectations, but I would be happy to have the opportunity to welcome you... More

Excellent resort, very accommodating and always wanting to make your stay excellent. Choice of 2 restaurants both very nice with very knowledgable staff to compliment their food with local wines. Great location for trips to Florence (1hour by car) or Sienna (20 mins by car) or even to visit local vineyards.

Set in a picturesque part of Tuscany, this hotel contributed to a large part of my vacation. I would mention two things that stood out for me. The first was the quality of our rooms.

A fantastic time at the hotel. Food is excellent, the majority of the staff are welcoming and very accommodating. The hotel and grounds are beautiful. We will most definitely stay there again.

Excellent hotel generally ; staff were very friendly and helpful in all areas . Only a couple of areas to improve on if I was to be picky - wifi is not good and the food for the pool area was very limited and unimaginative . Aside from that I would highly recommend and stay again .....

La Cantina was overpriced, impersonal and poor value. I would say average, at best. We were in fact, a little irritated when we went for dinner subsequently (in other local restaurants) because this became even more apparent. The spa, on the other hand was a pleasant, welcoming experience. The staff made us feel comfortable and the therapists were above average.... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
While painters are born, travellers are made and no land has aroused the curiosity, the enthusiasm and the culture of entire generations more than Tuscany. Certainly, not all of them have had the luck to begin their journey in the enchantment of Castel Monastero. In fact a few kilometres from our village, along roads of pure delight, can be found masterpieces of art and of the highest culinary tradition.Every day, a discovery. Every day a different itinerary passing through unspoiled scenery. Every day, on your return, a massage and a candle-lit dinner. And together, over a romantic meal for two or with your friends, you will recall the frescoes of Piero della Francesca and the perfect walls of Monteriggioni, the Renaissance utopia of Pienza and the gastronomic glory of Castellina in Chianti. And again, to surprise you, there’ll be a sunset over Pitigliano and a stroll around the Etruscan necropolises of Sovana. ... more   less
