First of all a warning for those planning to reach the hotel by public transport: this is IMPOSSIBLE. Even though the hotel website claims you can reach it by taking bus 2 and bus 6, the closest busstop is approximately 5 kilometres away, of which 4 km are across an unlit highway where cars drive 70 to 100 km/h. Certainly not a safe or recommended walk.
Since we had to venture this road when it was already very dark and there were no taxis nearby, we reached the hotel by hitchhiking. Adventurous, but not exactly recommended.
When you do get to the hotel in one piece, it is pretty nice. The rooms look amazing, very modern decor (with a really cool TV-in-mirror-thing!) and well equipped. The bathroom is nice, but water appears imited; on one night all the water outlets in the room stopped supplying water. Don't know if that's a regular occurence though.
Breakfast is pretty poor for a hotel claiming high standards, not that much choice and everything tastes somewhat cheap.
The pool is amazing, located on the 4rd floor with amazing views of the Tuscan countryside. Very cold though.
Overall, for some reason we both left with some mixed feelings about this hotel. Even though it has great rooms and a wonderful pool, it just misses some sort of soul. In the end, this place feels more like a fancy building where you can sleep than like a warm and welcoming hotel.
