This hotel is an excellent choice for exploring Tuscany. The accommodations were perfect for my family. Spacious rooms, well equipped kitchen, lovely decor, and spectacular views from every window. It has a parking lot in the back, a big plus. The restaurant serves a nice continental breakfast with a beautiful fresh torta . Eat indoors on on the pretty patio. The place has more of a B&B feel and is very comfortable and clean. Massages available, although we didn't take advantage. Laundromat right next door. Service was adequate, no room service or housekeeping but that wasn't important to us. Be sure to check in before the restaurant closes and be sure you have GPS navigation to find Montalcino. We did not, got lost, arrived late (1am) and spent the first night in our car. I called for directions but at the late hour and not being able to provide my exact location, they could not provide help. In the end I was responsible for the charge, which I do understand, just unfortunate. Even though, we give it a two thumbs up and will book again next time we are in Italy.
