Palazzo Leopoldo Dimora Storica & Spa
Ranked #1 of 15 Hotels in Radda in Chianti
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 24 October 2012

This was my favorite hotel that I stayed at in Italy. The experience was perfect. There was ample parking available, the management and front desk staff could not have been more pleasant and helpful and it was in an excellent location. The hotel itself was spotless, Wi-Fi was available, there was a nice patio to enjoy wine on in the evenings and the pool located in the property's old wine cellar was stellar. The breakfast that they offered in the morning was superb. There was just about everything that you could have wanted available (be sure to try the juice with the lemon and carrots - yum!). The lady that helped prepare breakfast would get you any kind of coffee that you wanted in the morning so you could have cappucino's until your heart was content. We upgraded to a room with a view which was worth the additional expense. The room had a nice efficiency kitchen and dining table. We even got meat, cheese, breadsticks and wine from the local market and ate in our room one night. The front desk staff had great suggestions for our day in Chianti. Be sure to go to Volpai for lunch (their truffle pasta is amazing), try the wineries that make the Chianti Classico, and visit Castello di Brolio (the tour is worth it). The front desk will be able to give you a map of the area and highlight some "must visit" places. One of our favorite meals was at La Botte di Bacco and try the Tuscan soup at the local wine bar. I heard that the hotel restaurant was also one of the best. The area right around the hotel is very cute and charming and it's a great location to visit other areas of Tuscany. We drove to both Siena and San Gimagnano. There are a lot of hairpin turns on the way there and back but worth the trek. Be sure to take a bottle of wine to the pool at night before you turn in. But definitely stay at Palazzo Leopoldo if you plan to visit Tuscany - you won't be disappointed!

We stayed here for 5 nights and had a wonderful experience. The staff are excellent, the rooms large, and the public areas comfortable. The hotel is located mid way between Florence and Sienna making it very easy to tour Tuscany using Radda as a base. The breakfasts were the best we had on our Italian trip. Our stay was highlighted by cooking classes with Lorenzo and Lorena. They were very informative, helping us understand the Tuscan way of cooking and we got to eat the results. Fantastic! I would certainly stay here again.

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.
