“Great price for modern but charming digs in an off-the-beaten-path Tuscan hilltown”
The hotel is charming; on a river, with modern and, for Italy, good-sized rooms. A helpful concierge for restaurant recommendations. Nice buffet breakfasts with excellent cappuccinos, which you can eat in the lovely breakfast room or on the patio. You won't find Hotel Certaldo or the town in the guidebooks, but it's on the outskirts of an old Tuscan hilltown in minature that's worth a little exploring. The town's restaurants are excellent and the location is an easy drive for day trips, save for the lack of clear roadsigns, to the wine areas of Chianti and Montepulciano/Montalciano, San Gimignano, Siena, Florence, etc. Don't let the unfinished road abutting the hotel entrance be a turnoff; the location is quiet and the views from the rooms are nice. Negatives are the small stall shower with an unsteady glass, yes glass, soapdish and the charge for Internet connection, but the room price was so reasonable you still come out ahead.
“Great hotel in central Tuscany”
We had a great time at this hotel. For the price, we couldn't have stayed at a better place. The breakfast buffet had lots to choose from, and the service was great is every aspect. If we come back to Tuscany, we will definitely stay here again.
“Very very very nice Recommended”
Very nice and brand new hotel. Pleasant and helpful staff. Well English speaking. They advise you and give you maps for everything. Delicious breakfast and if you are a coffee educated, they have illy coffee in the breakfast. Weather you want espresso or cappuccino. Spacious room and bathroom.
“Can't wait to go back!! A gem in the Heart of Tuscany!”
Hotel Certaldo is an awesome property about 45 minutes south of Florence, 10 minutes east of San Gimignano and 30 minutes north of Sienna! A perfect location in the heart of Tuscany. The staff are friendly and helpful with directions, & winery and restaurant recommendations! The breakfast is amazing (full breakfast buffet with everything you could want to start your day, including a fabulous cappucino)! We loved EVERY minute of our stay at Hotel Certaldo!!
“A Great Hotel”
The hotel is in a good location - close to the downtown area and train station. Rooms and common areas were immaculate. The breakfast exceeded other European hotels. The only drawback was a gravel parking lot which made check in and check out a little difficult.
Truly outstanding hotel! Spotless, extremely comfortable, and well-furnished rooms at an unbeatable price. Better than average breakfast. Competent and very helpful personnel. My group was delighted. Only drawback is the location, about an hour from Florence and almost a half-hour from downtown Siena. Perfect for visiting San Gimignano. Hotel is not hard to find from north or south if one simply follows signs for San Gimignano.
“Great Hotel (If you are driving)”
Modern accomodations, gracious and helpful staff, excellent breakfast selection. I would definitely recommend the place.
Great hotel. Clean and modern. Very friendly staff. Walking distance to the old city, which is off the typical tourist path but absolutely beautiful at night and a must-see if you stay here.
“Worthwhile to invest the time to get there”
To get to Certaldo and find the hotel is not straightforward especially if you're arriving late but it's excellent when you're there.
Hotel Certaldo is a small boutique hotel in Tuscany. The rooms are spacious and beautiful. Service was that of a 5 star hotel and breaksfast was outstanding. I live in Europe and travel all over and the quality of hotel service and accomodation was well worth the small price.
