“Beautiful View”
Reviewed 11 December 2013

We stayed for two nights during our self-guided hiking tour of Tuscany. We were a little disappointed that the pool was closed for renovation as we were really looking forward to it after the long hike. The views from this hotel are stunning, especially in the morning. We chose the "comfort level" for our hiking tour so our room overlooked the street in front of the hotel and unfortunately was right over the main entrance ...so quite late into the evening we heard the front auto-opening door open and close. The room was rather plain, but it was comfortable and clean. It did have a mini bar which we appreciated for keeping waters cold.

Hotel dei Capitani is located a very short walk from the center of town. The breakfast was probably one of the better ones we had in Tuscany and the variety of options was nice and the staff was friendly. The front desk reception staff was also very helpful & friendly. I appreciated that they all spoke a few different languages, including English.

For this price point, we certainly would recommend Hotel dei Capitani.

Room Tip: Pay a little more for a room with a view.

We stayed here as the first leg in our walking tour of the Tuscan hill towns. Room was clean and very nicely set up with a good sized bath. The bed was in a loft area that required 10-12 stairs to reach - bath is on the first floor. Staff were friendly and professional. As noted in other reviews, you have an expansive view of the Tuscan countryside from the downstairs sitting room and outside terrace. Town is a short, but fairly steep walk up to the main street. There is a small, charming children's park at the top of the hill. All the shops, restaurants and attractions are with a 5 - 10+ minute walk. Breakfast at the hotel gave you several choices of the normal breakfast foods and beverages. Exploring the town in the early morning and later in the evening (outside the normal tourist hours) really adds to the charm. We recommend the hotel as one that gives you good service, great views and a clean basic room for a good value.

Room Tip: If stairs are a problem - check with hotel first about the floor location of your room and if the be...

We spent two nights here and found it centrally located, comfortable and quiet. Sitting on the terrace in the evening was heaven. The hotel staff were very helpful and the house wine was excellent. They offer a large selection of foods for breakfast.

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.
