We spent four nights at this hotel. It is in a great location for going to Florence, Siena, Cortona and other close locations. You can park in free parking outside the little town and walk to the shops and restaurants from the hotel. This would be a great location for a family with children because you can tuck in for the night and walk to everything. Our room was HUGE and overlooked the beautiful countryside. The only negative is that we were right above the patio and people were out there talking until after midnight all of the nights. We had to wear earplugs every night in order to sleep. Although the room was big, the shower was so small that when my husband dropped his razor he had to exit the shower in order to pick it up. I have stayed in many European hotels and realize the bathrooms are small, but the shower is so small that I really believe some claustrophobic people wouldn't be able to use it. You can get a glass of wine in the lobby with a little effort, but it would have been nice to have a little more food and/or drinks available in the lobby. The breakfast was very good, but the female who works the breakfast seemed to have a real chip on her shoulder. There was still an hour left of breakfast service and there were no eggs and several other food items were low. We asked if she was going to be replenishing the items and she rolled her eyes and huffed off. She barely made enough scrambled eggs for one person. She also made several comments and acted annoyed with some of the other breakfast patrons. Most all of the guests are American or English. The front staff is very nice and helpful. The rooms are very clean.

Room Tip: Do not get the room over the patio (our was number 205).

We had the pleasure of staying at the hotel for 3 days. It was great you could relax, walk or drive to various parts of chianti. Our room had amazing views and the whole little village was so very friendly. They made us so welcome. I didn't know about the cooking classes before we went but this would be worth enquiring about as it is nice to try local. Wi if available but only in public areas which is a little bit of a shame but still very manageable. Can't wait to go back. Would definitely stay here again.

Excellant hotel, the staff, especially Sylvia, were extremely helpful. The room was very comfortable with a tremendous view. The location is perfect for visiting Siena and Florence and the village itself has many restaurants including some for fine dining. I would thoroughly recommend it. Martin Bott

We stayed here on our honeymoon. The location is right in the heart of Radda. The facilities are nice; our room was quite large. The staff was excellent, as was the buffet breakfast.

But the highlight of our stay was a private cooking class in the hotel kitchen with Lorenzo and his aunt, Larena (arranged through the hotel). They were both charming, and enthusiastically shared their passion for food, cooking, and Italian culture. Highly recommend it.

Hotels don't get any better than this. Spacious, clean, comfortable and quiet rooms in an historic building. Friendly advice on restaurants and everything else.
Try to catch the hotel meal on Wed nights. This was one of the best meals on our 5 week trip (and we ate well). Offered by Paola and her son Jimmi who also offer a cooking class. Fellow travellers who did this course commented that they were well pleased.
