“Excellent location”
Reviewed 7 September 2013

The Hotel is in a very good location especially if you have a car. The rooms are lovely, quiet and comfortable. The staff are very friendly and helpful. We found the swimming pool a wonderful place to relax after a busy day sightseeing and have a lovely cup of tea!

Everything was excellent: hotel is very well located wtih easy access and very convenient parking.
Rooms are very comfortable (we had a triple room).The swimming-pool was great for a nice rest after visiting, especially in august. Breakfast was perfect and complete. We had a very warm welcome by a very nice staff and I highly recommend this hotel.

A very nice hotel, great location, easy access by car, with private parking, rooms are comfortable and spacious, but it is better to take a shower before eating, because the entry in the shower is so narrow that you must have the body of flyweight boxer.The reception is very nice, the advices are good, the breakfast is fine . We did not use the pool, but it is also nice.

We had an excellent stay in the San Lino hotel in Volterra. We had stayed in this hotel 3 years ago when visiting the region, which speaks for itself. The hotel had a relaxed and friendly atmosphere even though it appeared to be full. The availability of secure, private car parking was also an advantage. The hotels location inside the ancient town walls was excellent and meant that we were within easy walking distance of shops, restaurants and many of the historical sites. The San Lino typifies the character and ambiance of the town itself, which is full of charm and history. The pool and outside courtyard area provided ample facility to relax and enabled the children to cool off in the afternoons. The hotel also organised various evening activities like food and wine tasting. The breakfast, while not gourmet, was more than adequate to satisfy us all. All in all an excellent stay.

Room Tip: We stayed in rooms facing onto the street previously which gave us views out onto the beautiful stre...

We spent about one week in July in Volterra wich is a very nice town and very well located to explore tuscany. Hotel San Lino was a good choice because it is situated right in the centre of the town, which means you don't have to climb a lot of stairs or half of the hill which you have to do if you stay at most of the other hotels in Volterra.
The hotel itself is situated in an old convent. We booked a standard room with pool view and the room was ok and comfortable. The installation in the bathroom were very old and getting into the shower could mean a problem for bigger people. Anyway, it was all kept very clean and we were quite happy. The staff is very friendly and we felt very much like home. The pool area is nice although the pool is much smaller as it seems on the fotos of the hotel. The only really bad thing was the breakfast. We did not expect to get a great one in Italy, but one week with a thin Nescafe, completely tasteless bread, ham and cheese (each of those only one kind) was really enough. Anyway, two times we convinced the waiter to prepare us a proper coffee at least. We had dinner once there but this was an experience I cannot recommend although it was very cheap.
So, the hotel is nice, very well situated and with very friendly staff, if they could do something about their breakfast and their old showers I would have given them 5 point.

We had a very nice time in this hotel during our stay in Volterra. We enjoyed the pool and the view over the valley from the higher terrace. The service was excellent, they were very helpfull and extremely nice. Only the airco was quite loud at night.

The location was very good, central but not in the midst of the buzz. We also enjoyed the pool and the terrace, and the view from the viewpoint was great, but they should have made it more inviting to sit there.
The interior and furniture could have done with a remake, but it was clean and comfortable eneough. The wireless internet was good, and breakfast was ok. A better selection of bread would be nice.
