As other have said, Uberto has a fine situation. However, for this reviewer the impression left by a hotel/guesthouse is an amalgam of its location/interior/facilities and the attitude of the people who run it. This couple - not it would seem the owners, they refused to give contact details for them - do not have the first idea of how to treat their guests. Any hotel which does not take well-meant, polite complaints seriously should not be in business. In this case, the coffee was the problem - quite an achievement to produce lousy coffee day after day in Italy. The 4 chairs in the room were completely shot - just springs barely covered by upholstery. Drawing this to the receptionist's attention brought forth a torrent of vacuous nonsense - he had only put the chairs in the room 3 days ago etc. At no point did he accept that the chairs were unacceptable, in any circumstances or that the coffee might be substandard.
My advice is if you like aggressive unpleasant service, stay here; if not, go to one of the many local alternatives where the welcome, as is most of Italy, is warm and generous.
Wherever you stay, make sure to eat at the restaurant Nono in Castellina-in-Chianti; fine regional cooking - only 6 tables so book!
