This hotel was extremely clean, comfortable and huge compared to the other hotels we stayed in in Italy. The bathroom was very modern and looked like it had just been updated. The bedroom area was spacious and had a lot of room to hang and store clothes.
The location is centrally located to all of the sites, just a few steps from the very "famous" entrance. Everything in Volterra is within walking distance and there are so many quaint little shops and art studios to see.
The staff of the hotel was friendly and accommodating. Its a culture shock to leave your key at the desk when you leave a hotel, but I felt very safe in doing so at this hotel. The complementary breakfast was also, very good.
The view from the window was to the quaint street below. We left the window open at night and it was very quiet.
I would definitely recommend this hotel.
