Sorano is surely not one of the best known and crowded locations in Tuscany. In contrary. From the outside, Hotel della Fortezza does not show its true beauty. It is located in a medieval fortress and you really have to know where to go if you go there. After first visit you will love it and become returning guest. The...

The place in general is fabulous, Sorano is fabulous, the Fortezza is fabulous. The hotel itself is really just the rooms, no reception area to speak of and no proper restaurant. The people in reception are nice, but since it's just a small room off a small corridor, you will wait for ages if there's someone in front of you...

We only had one night here and it really wasn't enough. I wish I could bottle the experience and drink it all year. That view.... The feeling of peace and space. Incredible. And the beds were comfortable, the room was quiet, breakfast was great and everything fresh and clean. And the view....

We stayed in the Hotel della Fortezza in March, just a few days after it had reopened following some renovation. The lady at check in was very pleasant and spoke very good English. We were given a room (no 11) facing roughly West over the old town, which had the most stunning view of Soran's rooftops and the sunset in...

This 11th century fort has been turned into a charming boutique hotel. Amazing views! Great staff. Christiano and Zoe work hard to make sure all your needs are well taken care of. Great recommendations for food and wine. The city of Sorano below the Fort is like stepping back 100 years . Was amazing to just see the town folk...

It's difficult to describe the entire experience of approaching this castle, staying the night and exploring the spectacular hilltop town of Sorano. We went their on the recommendation of a lady we met in a store in Grosseto where we went to purchase an adapter plug to charge our phones. To get there, we drove through Pitigliano and left via...

What a treat to stay in an honest-to-goodness castle! I wish we could have stayed longer. Our room was very comfortable and we happened to have a lovely view of the countryside. There was a nice terrace to bask in the sun and enjoy the ambience. Good breakfast, charming nooks and crannies and very friendly, helpful owner / staff. Wifi...

Located at the top of the mountain village of Sorano this property has magnificent views and the new owner Cristiano is very helpful with tips on what to do. The hotel is located in the old Fort of Sorano.

This place is tucked away in a remote town. We drove down Etruscan roads (read up on that history item) and were amazed when we showed up at the entrance to a castle. The small staff was very nice and helpful, plus the room was way more comfy than what we expected from an 800 year old building. Breakfast was...

La Fortezza Orsini di Sorano è uno dei più imponenti esempi di Architettura militare dell’intera Toscana,e fu una delle più importanti piazzeforti.La leggenda della “Fortezza Inespugnabile”,si tramanda tuttora e se ne può leggere nelle cronache dell’epoca ( Niccolò dell’Antella nel 1608 Scriveva a proposito della Fortezza : ……..Gli sta sopra come un falcone……e quando si è per terra…..per cosa di stupore a rimirare una fabbrica a altezza tale che quasi pare che l’occhio vi si smarrisca….) ,per tanto tempo la Fortezza di Sorano ha difeso i confini della Toscana meridionale e il Paese sottostante,a renderlo imprendibile erano: La sua posizione rafforzata dalle antiche mura e la chiusura dell’unica via di accesso dai bastioni della Fortezza Orsini.All’interno della Cittadella della Fortezza nella parte più vecchia (precedente alla ristrutturazione dell’architetto Sangallo ) dopo aver oltrepassato il ponte levatoio sul fossato nella piccola piazza si trova L’Hotel della Fortezza,dotato di 16 Camere arredate con raffinata eleganza e mobili d’epoca , dalle cui finestre si può godere di una vista mozzafiato a picco sull’antico borgo di Sorano,inoltre l’altra particolarità dell’Hotel della Fortezza è quella di avere tutte le camere diverse,per potervi regalare un soggiorno unico……………………………….. ... more   less
