Three cheers for the Hotel San Lino. I have visited the Tuscan hilltop town of Volterra for the past 11 years with student groups on sightseeing tours of Italy. We have always used the San Lino as our hotel of choice. Over the course of these 11 years, the hotel's management has changed 3 times. The most recent team is, by far, the best. Recently, our group of 48 people arrived without our luggage, an unfortunate situation due to weather-related and airline issues. Carina and Michele (not to mention several other people at the hotel) worked with me and the airline to make sure that our bags were eventually delivered. We received some of the pieces of luggage while in Volterra while the rest of them were sent to our next destination for us.
Without the help of the staff at the Hotel San Lino I'm not sure we'd have ever gotten our luggage. They went above and beyond my expectations of "hotel service". They were sincerely concerned for us and made every effort to help us during a time in which 48 people had to endure the summer heat of Italy without having sufficient clothing and personal items.
I would advise anyone considering travel to this Tuscan jewel-of-a-town to make their hotel of choice the Hotel San Lino. The rooms are exceptionally clean, the meals at the restaurant are incredibly prepared with fresh, local ingredients and are delicious. The breakfast buffet even impressed forty one 18 year olds, not to mention the adults who particularly were impressed with the soft boiled egg maker! Add the terrace and the pool to the experience and you'll have memories to last a lifetime.
Did I mention the hotel staff and the service they provide? Three cheers and 5+ stars for the Hotel San Lino in Volterra.
