“beautiful little hotel in Radda”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 October 2007

This was a delightful, beautiful little hotel in the heart [on top of the hill] in Radda in Chianti. We were there for three days. The room was clean, the bed comfortable, and the breakfasts were good. The town and hotel were fairly central to the rest of the Chianti region. The staff were very helpful, albeit, they spoke very little english, they were still able to help with directions and making reservations for us. We would stay they again if we were ever to return.

  • Liked — location, staff, accommodations, views
  • Disliked — you had to park down the hill about 300 yards away

Stayed for 3 nights and really enjoyed our stay. Reception staff very pleasant and welcoming.
Our room was on the top floor under the roof tiles, no view but there was a remote controlled roof window. An air conditioning unit and flatscreen TV is provided. Very clean and spacious area but the wardrobe was a little short on clothes hangars. The bathroom had a shower cubicle and a spa bath!
The mini bar was fully stocked but was not refrigerating and was not fixed during our stay.
Good buffet breakfast.
Only found out about the indoor pool as we were checking out!
Would be very happy to stay here again.

  • Liked — Location, rooms, friendly staff
  • Disliked — The non-refrigerating mini bar!

This hotel and staff so greatly exceeded our expectations that we extended our initial three-day stay to a full week. We had intended to investigate other areas and hotels in Tuscany, but the absolute charm of the hotel and the village of Radda made it hard to move anywhere else.

The only note to first-time travelers in this region is to be aware that the towns are often very remote from each other, separated by twisting and confusing roads and directions. We brought a portable GPS nav system with Europe maps for our rental car. It was a life saver. We easily navigated from Milan to Radda. The hotel is located down the only obvious street within the small medieval walled town. Parking is in dirt lot down the hill... near Michele's Pizza, in a dirt lot.

  • Liked — Location in beautiful medieval town; accomodations and overall value
  • Disliked — Breakfast was a bit spartan and unchanging during our stay

We stayed at Palazzo San Niccolo for 3 nights in July. It was by far the best hotel of our trip to Italy (we stayed in a total of 6 hotels on this trip - all 3 or 4 star). This was the only one that was truly a 4-star hotel).

Starting with a wonderful front desk staff who showed us to our room and brought our bags, and even parked our car (the hotel parking is outside the city wall), this was a great stay.

The hotel is in a refurbished medieval palace next door to the City Hall and the city church, and has gorgeous frescoes painted all over the sitting room on the first floor, and a very nice terrace off the second floor where the breakfast is served (or you can opt to stay inside if it's hot).

We booked one of their deluxe rooms - ours was on the top floor with 12-foot domed ceiling, a remote-controlled A/C, flat-screen TV, and a large jacuzzi tub in the bathroom, overlooking the terrace.

The breakfast was absolutely the best one in Italy - with green and black olives, a variety of cold cuts, aged Romano cheeses, fritatta, fruit salad, and wild berry fruit tart in addition to the standard continental fare other hotels serve. Also - their capuccinoes were the ABSOLUTE BEST - huge and very tasty.

San Niccolo is one of two hotels belonging to the same chain in Radda, and some of the amenities are located at the other hotel (100 feet down the street) - they have a restaurant, gym, and the coolest swimming pool ever! The pool is located in the "dungeon" with domed stone ceilings and is almost completely private.

The hotel also offers a multitude of tours, and we booked a Chianti wine tasting tour - a half-day private tour with a driver-guide to three local wineries - wonderful and not expensive.

We would return to Palazzo San Niccolo in a heartbeat!

I'm writing down a couple of lines just to reccomend this hotel to who loves Tuscany and its tipical hills. Besides the landscape and the lovely atmosphere, the hotel has to be visited for its reliable staff: nice excursions on the hills, perfect suggestions for typical restaurants where my girlfriend and I enjoyed food and wine of the area (glasses always filled to the top....of that amazing "Chianti Riserva"...).
I friend of mine suggested this brand new hotel and, since my stay has been brilliant, I would like to share this tip with who loves Tuscany and its landscape.
I wish I could write down their website address, but unfortunately, I've lost it....but give it a try, I was told that they constantly update their page with special offers!!!!
