Two of us had a very nice stay at La Locanda. Be warned that you will have to trek a ways with your luggage as the parking in Volterra is outide of town. However, it is really nice to be at the center of everything.
As others have said, the WIFI is often down if you care about that. We did not. The breakfast was fine for the very good price and the rooms and showers were very clean, roomy and nice.
Most of all, the front-desk staff could not have been more charming or hospitable. She was very good at giving us pointers about the town and restaurants.
I would go back for sure.
