The desk did not make it clear that there is parking at the top. This fortress is absolutely from another place! Our pictures are numerous and reflect the uniqueness of this stay! Two nights--two beds, large bathroom, fresh air, a view, a breakfast to last half the day, and all in a small town as quaint as you can imagine! The price of the hotel on Orbitz was 158 Euros for all. Unbelievable place to stay the first nights of our visit to Italy! Caution: the ground is uneven, the interior stairs are uneven. Use the handrails. Ask for meat and cheese in addition to what is laid out for the breakfast buffet. The drinks in the cooler are for sale for your day of hiking or for visiting Saturnia. My only complaint is that the bed was too hard--and I like firm beds and the "pillows" (cushions?) leave a bit to be desired. Another caution: be very careful driving down the switchback! Or...simply park across the street and haul....

Room Tip: It wouldn't surprise me if all the rooms have a view.

Our stay at the Hotel della Fortezza was exceptional, a wonderful and peaceful experience thanks to proprietor Cristiano his staff of Arianna, Eleonora, Zoe and many more not mentioned. We just spent one night due to our travels, and staff was too kind in changing my dates as well as upgrading us since it was my birthday and we were also on our wedding anniversary trip through Tuscany. Highly recommend this stop in your travels, you may stay and never leave.

The beautiful setting of Sorana is enough for any couple looking for a retreat where you can choose romance, adventure or the Celestial local food.
The staff are focused on you and give everything to making your stay 6 star.
We stayed for four nights in the fort tower, we walked to our room across the fortress wall "THE FORTRESS WALL"

When I started planning my trip to Tuscany, and wanted to visit this region, of Sorano, Pitigliano and Sovana, this hotel struck my fascination and it was the best choice at a very reasonable price and great place.

Cristiano and his staff are each one a sales person for the region, an area of Tuscany, that very little is heard of, and what an amazing surprise is to visit it.
We stayed only two nights, the area deserves at least three nights, at least!!!, so if you want to discover the Secret Tuscany, the one that very few foreigners know, come to this part of Italy, you will not be disappointed and the hotel rooms are enough, no need for a lobby to stay in....it is a medieval fortress and spectacular views....

And there is a museum right in the entrance area, and a tour as well nearby, well worth it...as for car parking is about 200 yds from the very entrance but all is safe....do not travel very heavy.

Room Tip: any room all is quiet and nice, even if they may seem small.

This off the beaten path gem did not disappoint. Such a unique experience to stay in a castle in a quiet historical town. Hotel was clean and staff great. Surrounded by lots of great hikes and ruins, which all in the family enjoyed.

Stayed: August 2017, travelled with family
