A La Casa dei Potenti
Reviewed 3 November 2010

We booked a double room with a shared bathroom for 50 Euro a night. The accommodation with a shared bathroom is in a separate building to the rooms with bathrooms. My boyfriend and I both loved this place and decided to stay for another night. The place was inside the hotel walls, just off the La Cisterna square. The room and shared bathroom were both pretty basic and there was no breakfast included, but the bed was comfy and the view was great. The shuttered window opened up over a lovely little street and the Tuscan countryside. It felt to us like we were staying in someone's spare bedroom. The check-in process for this hotel was pretty difficult, as the 'office' is in a separate building altogether, in a small shop in La Cisterna square. We couldn't find this easily as there is only a sign printed up on an A4 piece of paper in the window to indicate it is there. We were carrying heavy bags and were both a bit cranky by the time we found it. This seems to be a bit of a common issue, as the people we asked for directions knew exactly where to send us. Aside from that, the room was great - excellent location and price.

Want a room that looks out onto a piazza with an ancient church and towers? Casa de' Potenti can do that.

Friendly host Maurizio's family has had this place for generations and it's a delight.

Shower was very tiny and the room could have used some drawers, but those are small complaints for what is a surprisingly quaint place in what otherwise is a tourist trap of a town.

Great location, good price. The room was clean and had a cute little view into the plaza. A definite recommendation!

We arrived in SG at the spur of the moment decision and were told at the information office that all rooms were booked. Luckily, a man walked in at that time and told us he had a room at Casa de Potenti for $70 a night with bath overlooking the piazza. Nice rooms and bathrooms, geat view and handy to everything. The only complaint I had was the first night when the neighbors, Italian, came in late and immediately turned the t.v. and also began talking very loudly which was disturbing. The room was very clean, a good size, great views, nicely appointed and had a heated towel rack...a first for us.
