We arrived at Volterra in the evening, not having a reservation, and tried many hotels in the area, but no one was satisfactory (either bad smell, not worth the high room rate, or faraway location). San Lino was the best choice, with very clean rooms, friendly receptionist and great location. We were the only clients in all the hotel and payed 90 eur for a double and had free parking. Room was very quiet, we woke up in the pleasant birds' song. Covered parking next door, which is a great asset for Volterra, but 11 eur/night normaly.
The only remark is that this should not be rated as a 4 stars hotel, in my opinion. The shower cabine door was broken, the floor was tiled like in cheap hotels, the heating wasn't working (and it was cold, even for April), the TV wasn't working, the bathroom had an outworn general look.
I think if you stay longer in Volterra you should check the agroturism villas, which are many around the town. We saw one and was great, but they only rent for the week (at least not only one night).
