The hotel is an easy walk from the bus stop and rooms have free wifi, fridges, aircon and kingsized beds. It was over priced at 104 euros a night , by far the dearest hotel in our 6 week European trip. Some of the staff were rather offhand and had difficulty with English which is not what you expect in a hotel of this class. The breakfast was only average, again not the standard you would expect.Great location for exploring this beautiful hill top town. ou MUST visit Volterra but do your homework on accommodation. Some great little restaurants close by. We travelled around Italy by bus and when we were leaving there were only two buses heading for Siena, the 1st at 8 am and the next at 1.30.
