“Lovely hotel in great location”
Reviewed 27 April 2011

Despite being in an old paper factory, the hotel itself is modern, clean and businesslike. Not incredibly charming but very comfortable and clean. Our double room wasn't huge but had a decent sized bathroom and a really comfortable bed. The buffet breakfast was great, with a good variety of things to choose from.

The village is lovely, with a castle and a couple of nice squares to walk around. We drove to Siena very easily in under half and hour. We managed to find a free parking space right outside the hotel, so it may be best to try this rather than pre-booking a paid parking space.

We found the service to be outstanding - when checking out we asked for advice on a good route to take to Lucca as we wanted to see some scenery and avoid the motorway. The lovely lady on the reception desk went onto Google for us and printed out full directions, a map and talked us through the route.

The staff were very friendly and my rate at 50 euros was very good. I had a small but functional room. Ok, the shower was tiny but this is Europe. The Internet worked fine and was also inexpensive. Breakfast buffet was the usual European offering of cold cut meats, basic pastries, cereal, and hot drinks...

Definitely not luxury but it fit the bill great for my solo business trip.

Nice hotel right on the corner of the main town square. some furnitures are a bit outdated but it was not a big problem. the rooms were cleaned and the breakfast was a lot to choose from. note down that the part of the town where the hotel is situated in in the lower town part, as the old part of the town is situated on a hill. we did the sightseeing of the areas around, so it was a great location to see Siena, Chianti, Firenze, Monpulciano. Internet is for extra charge, also no free parking but you can leave the car in front of the hotel for the extra charge.

We were very pleased with this quiet little hotel. The owner was very helpful with recommendations for dining and parking. It has a very pleasant breakfast room with more than the usual offerings. Our room was comfortable and clean with windows opening to the quiet street just steps away from the town’s main square. Parking was on the street in the neighborhood with meters or for fee parking garage. The hotel was a little difficult to find because the internet site we used listed the address as 579 Via Oberdan when in fact was 5/7/9 Via Oberdan which confused our GPS.

I moved to this hotel after spending a couple of hours at the Relais Della Rovere and being unhappy there. (I have written a separate review of the Relais Della Rovere.) This hotel is central, charming, warm and welcoming. It is family owned and operated, and a family member was always around during my stay. The owners/management knew that internet connectivity was important to me. When the hotel's internet provider continued to experience problems, one of the young managers allowed me to use her private account, going well above and beyond what one expects. (At the Relais Della Rovere, no one was even aware that there was a problem with the internet provider to hotels in the area; simply told me that sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't and that I should keep trying.) The restaurant at Hotel La Vecchia Cartiera was excellent and well-priced. I would select this hotel again. It is a far superior choice to Relais Della Rovere.

I spent three nights at this well-managed hotel in the lower part of Colle Val d'Elsa while attending meetings in Oct.. The staff was very pleasant and helpful. The room with a king size bed (two individual beds put together, actually) was clean and adequate. Breakfast was very complete and well-presented. The hotel is also very close to the bus stop for traveling to and from Siena or Florence. I would happily stay here again.

A very well managed hotel with extremely helpful staff. Located in the centre of this small non-tourist town with plenty of attractive old hill-top towns in easy driving distance
