“Does what it says on the tin!”
Reviewed 11 July 2012 via mobile

A fairly basic tourist hotel. Very clean though and quite sufficient if you want a good value option away from the main tourist villages but with good access to all of Tuscany. Room quite small but comfortable. Breakfast ok but not remarkable. Hotel restaurant gets reasonable reviews but could be better. Would we return?........ Probably, just to use as a good value base

Used this hotel as a base for visiting San Gim, Sienna, Volterra and rural Chianti. Absolutely perfect location for exploring from. Clean, comfortable, friendly helpful staff make this a low budget choice.

This place has all you need to sleep well, have a shower and a breakfast. It is in the middle of the Tuscany triangle San Gimignano, Firenze and Siena, the rooms are clean, the people are friendly and the price we paid was really worth it. And believe me, if you are in Tuscany, you do not want to stay in your hotel room... you want to be out all the time and I rather spend the money in Firenze on the market and buy some beautiful leather things other than pay too much for a hotel room that I hardly use...

Down from Florence to Poggibonsi exploring Tuscany! Arrived at the hotel in the morning and was greeted by very friendly receptionist. Our room was on 5th floor (I think, well, quite high) and we had an amazing view of town and the hills surrounding it. Our room was small but nice, only downside was two twin beds pushed together, but really comfy. We were staying here only one night, we wanted to explore Poggibonsi (very small but nice town) and from there visit some places in Chianti. We were not sure where to drive so we asked at the reception and the very friendly staff recommended to us Castellina in Chianti. Only few miles away we found this beautiful town and had a great afternoon. Breakfast was amazing, great choice for everyone. This hotel is really nice, and it makes such a difference when staff is so friendly and helpful. We paid only €45 for the night which I consider to be a bargain for the great service we received.

Room Tip: If you are driving - free car park at the hotel.

visiting Tuscany, we had a very nice experience. Very friendly welcoming, clean rooms, very good restaurant.
Restaurant specialized for fish. They even organize a CACCIUCCO day, the famous fish soup tuscany art.
Poggibonsi was surprising and nice in the old center and the castle called Cassero.
The atmosphere is certainly due to the family management
