Rustic hotel in pretty location near lakePosted Jul 11, 2013 on Hotels.com
Peaceful rustic hotel in pretty location near the lake. Friendly staff, nice atmosphere, good outside dinning under cover. Rooms are quite basic but clean.

VicchioPosted Sep 27, 2011 on Hotels.com
The hotel itself was overall satisfactory with the plusses being the staff and the cleanliness of the hotel. However the walls of the hotel are paper thin and any noise or movement is immediately an annoyance to others. Don't know why anyone would want to stay in this area as there are no walking/cycling trails, no nightlife, no internet cafe and twice trains to fFirenze were cancelled with no explanation. we were also fined 40 euro because we did not validate our train ticket. We had the ticket and on platform 18 where we departed there is no validation machine.

Nice surroundings and satisfactory hotel for business tripPosted Apr 7, 2011
I only spent one night at the hotel. It was a business trip. The surroundings were pleasant and the hotel satisfactory.

Comfortable, butPosted Nov 16, 2008
Nice clean hotel, ideal for overnight stays. With good restaurant right next door. However the walls are thin and the sound travels through - not ideal if the neighbours are even a bit noisy. Tea and coffee facilities in the room would also be welcome. But nice and clean, and friendly people.

too noisyPosted Nov 12, 2008
The rooms were so sparsely furnished (and very small), no carpeting in the hallways, no noise absorbing surfaces. We could hear every step taken in the hallway, doors being unlocked. We felt like we had to creep around and be quiet. Also the staff spoke very little English and could barely direct us to the train station.

Dont recommendPosted Sep 28, 2008
The rooms are very small. You had to walk sideways past everything in your room. The food however in the restaurant is nice. Breakfast was very disappointing. I would not stay here again.

Hidden little gem at very resonable pricePosted Aug 12, 2008 on Hotels.com
Very nice, quaint simple yet delightful hotel & restaurant in a lovely village/town with beautiful setting of a nearby lake.

Great ValuePosted May 12, 2008
Really a typical European small hotel room; small shower and very firm beds. This a perfect vacation location however, not that well suited for tourism. Takes a long time to get places, but that's the Tuscan country side. We loved it, lake is three hundred yards away, with a nice little coffee/beer shack on its shores. Overall, was a super value...this is not a five star hotel, but you don't pay five star prices. Staff are very, very friendly, and very helpful.

Stay Away from The MontellieriPosted Jan 9, 2008
Awful location - dirt road to reach it on top of a hill. To skimp on costs, they don't allow you to pick your breakfast from a buffet - despite free breakfast being included. Only place in Italy where I suffered this situation. Room was for 3 people, yet in reality, there's no way 3 could have stayed there. TV didn't work initially. Heat is turned off during the day in winter. Bathrooms awfully small, inadequate towels supplied. STAY AWAY !

The Heart of TuscanyPosted Oct 3, 2007
The hotel is in the middle of valleys, trees, and a lake. The view from my window could have been a post card. Everyone was extremely nice and helpful going out of their way to speak English. The food was out of this world!
