There is a lot about this hotel that makes it stand out. The building is an old Monastery, very interesting and the public areas are lovely, with a beautiful outside courtyard where breakfast is served in summer, and lovely for sitting in the sunshine during the day. Very peaceful. Now the not so goods. Choice of room is important. We had friends with us and whilst they had a lovely room with a great view across to the Tuscan hills from the second floor, we were disappointingly allocated a room on the ground floor, which had a high window with bars on, which gave it a ' cell like ' feeling, and was very basic. Dark and dismal. The breakfast was also quite basic with a very limited choice of continental breakfast, and could be so improved with a better choice of prepared fruit, and wider options. It isn't licensed, which isn't a huge issue as there are bars close by. The final thing that for me impacts the rating is that whilst it is in a lovely quiet setting, it is also not that close to the centre and there are hotels that are much closer to the centre of everything. It's not too far, and takes around 10 minutes to walk to Ill Campo, but I would prefer to be closer, even accepting hotels in the centre are much noisier. So overall, nice hotel, but try and avoid ground floor rooms for the best experience
