“Great hotel with super view”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 October 2013

We have stayed about a dozen times. Perfect for us for Montalcino. Nice helpful staff. Massimo has been helping us since 1999. Valley view rooms provide great views. Located inside the town. Short walk to center. Free parking. Good basic breakfast. Clean comfortable room and bath. Great value for the view and location. Wifi good in common areas, less reliable in rooms. If looking for this price range in town, we think this is the place to stay.

Room Tip: Valley view room

Nice Hotel with excellent views. I heard one guest complain that a shrub was blocking his view so look into that. Our view was for miles of the Tuscany farmland. Very nice breakfast and reading rooms downstairs off the patio also with valley views. The bed was just OK. we stayed in 3 different hotels in Italy, all in the upper/medium price ranges, all had hard beds.

Room Tip: Our room was on the same floor as the front desk and had a great view. so, the main floor or the s...

I travel to Italy almost every year. Montalcino is my favourite place in all of Italy and this hotel is my favourite place in Montalcino. I have stayed here many times and have never been disappointed. The location and views are stunning. The hotel is charming but the rooms themselves are admittedly not as spacious as one might like, but charm of the place more than makes up for this. The staff is friendly and helpful. Wonderful breakfast. I have referred many people to dei Capitani who feel the same as I do about it. I can't wait to go back.

Beautiful view, hotel very well decorated. Staff exceptionally helpful. Breakfast really good,
but our room was very noisy being next to the lift and having air-conditioning units outside our window. Walls thin, certainly in the room we were in. We just could not sleep. The hotel was fully booked and were unable to move us. So disappointing as we had had such wonderful reports and paid extra for a room with a view. Pool closed for renovation! If we could be assured of a quiet room, we would certainly return to Dei Capitani. Montalcino is a delightful village and well worth a visit.

Room Tip: I suggest you do not have the room next to the lift on the floor where reception is.

Our second stay at DeCapitani.
Staff friendly and helpful, good restaurants nearby (after all, you're in Italy), wonderful breakfast.

If you're driving, be aware that parking is very limited and accessible via a short VERY STEEP driveway that will test your skills.

Be sure to request a valley view. The mornings are spectacular.

We enjoyed our stay at this hotel. It was very convenient for exploring the small town. The breakfast room was delightful and the food was good quality. The staff were very good and helpful. It was pleasant to sit outside overlooking the pool and the fantastic view from the hotel. Our room was quite small but the view compensated for this.

Room Tip: Rooms on the back of the hotel have fantastic views, some with small balconies.

Hotel del Capitani is a great little hotel. It's clean and conveniently located in Montalcino. It's a short walk (though uphill) to the cafes and shops. We stayed 5 nights here in July and loved it. It's on the side of the mountain with a small infinity pool overlooking the valley. There's breakfast every morning with fruits, cheeses, meats, pastries, and cereals and the staff are friendly and attentive.

We stayed in one of the smaller rooms which was 2 stories. It had a bed in the loft and a great window looking out over the valley. Bathroom was on first floor and there was a small desk and wardrobe on first floor as well. Not a place to hang out in and relax, but was great for sleeping. The bed wasn't very comfortable, but none of the beds were during our 2 week stay in Italy. We also had issues with the shower (it was a bath with a shower attachment) not keeping water in the bath. Any time we showered we'd have a flow of water running on the floor. Luckily they provided lots of towels and it was easily remedied.

The walls are thin, which I'm sure is an issue at any small place in Europe, and on our last night a family stayed in the room next to us. Their infant kept us up a bit later than we wanted but it would be an issue anywhere.

The rooms were also reasonable by the standards we found in Italy and ended up being a bargain for the experience we had.
