Reviewed 2 September 2017

One member of our family stayed a few days at this hotel trying to sort out some issues with our car. Daniele was extremely helpful assisting the three other members of our family in getting rides to the train/bus station and purchasing trains tickets, two leg overnight tickets, for three people to Germany. Daniele greeted us with a big smile, sense of humour and fantastic English! Above and beyond service, thanks Daniele!

Room Tip: The rooms on the ground floor at the back have patios.

It's a cheap hotel. Which is no issue but the beds were horrific. Bare springs and paper thin.
Compared to the Agriturismo for the same prices this place was a massive downgrade.
Give it a miss. It's not even worth 20 euro per night.

This is a supercute little hotel in a kicky area of town near the duomo and the David museum and that awesome gelato place. The elevator is really small but the rooms are roomy and fun. The people is nice too.

To stay in hotel you need to travel by car, coz hotel is located far away from Florenze and Siena too. I reccomend the restaurant and quality of rooms. Also staff was nice and helpful. Everything was perfect.

We are staying here at this moment and for anyone who is thinking of staying here in the next few days, don't. Yesterday, a coach full of very, very, noisy, excitable children arrived. They were running up and down the corridor outside our room and in and out of each other's. We had an hours reprieve while they had dinner, then it went on again after dinner until 10.15pm. I thought we were staying in a hostel. Imagine our dismay, when tonight, not one, but TWO coach loads arrived. Twice the noise, twice the banging. We went, very respectfully to ask to be moved, as we are surrounded on all sides by children, and all we got was a shrug of the shoulders from the duty manager and shaking of heads from two teachers.
We are parents ourselves and have grandchildren, so are not children haters. This is our first time in Tuscany, and this is really ruining our holiday. We will be looking for alternate accommodation tomorrow. This is totally unacceptable. DO NOT BOOK !

Found this hotel on line as it was close to the company we were visiting. Stayed 2 nights as we arrived around 7pm we decided to eat in the hotel restaurant.

The service, food and drink were good enough for us to eat at the restaurant the second night.

The rooms were very comfortable mini bar etc.

Breakfast which was included had a good selection continental. Great coffee.

All the staff were excellent.

November is off season the charges for the rooms, drinks, dinner, breakfast was very reasonable. Will definitely stay here again on my next visit.

The hotel had a pool and is central to the Chianti region so would make a good touring base.
