We stayed here for two nights to attend a family wedding. All the staff were friendly and helpful. The young manager in charge of the evening menu took the time to explain some of the meals, the vegetables and one of the cheeses of which came from his family's farm. The olive oil also came from there and the wine selection was good.
Rooms were spacious, comfortable and clean.
The bedroom decor was slightly dated but we were perfectly happy and enjoyed our stay.

Excellent hotel for a real welcoming Italian experience which offers good value for both accommodation and meals. The rooms are spacious, beds comfortable and the staff are very friendly and helpful. The location is 5/10 minutes easy walk from the centre. Free and easy parking. WiFi and aircon both work well. Although breakfast is basic there is a good restaurant available for lunch or dinner. English speaking staff. We stayed here 10 days and had a delightful experience. We will be back.

With a party for a conference party on Luca Pacioli (Father of Accounting) and we hardly had much time at the hotel - however it was a cool place in the late evening and the staff were very friendly and many spoke English and when they did not they were sure to make sure that your question was answered. The rooms are large and the beds comfortable and the bathrooms well appointed. Our room had a balcony but no time to use it. The hotel is located within easy walking distance of the library and museums in the old medieval once walled town and there is a Farmacia just across the road. The best features were the elegance of the hotel where they make their own very special olive oil and have a fine cellar for Tuscany wine. Also liked the cross bows on display and learning of the history of the family skills at this traditional form of archery and the fact that the hotel has been in the hands of the same family for several generations. They do have laundry service and it was good and not expensive.

After my four hour drive up from Rome, it was easy to find the Balestra.
An outstandingly friendly receptionist, provided me with a key to a room on the second floor. The room was larger than expected with a well appointed bathroom and everything was spotless.
Although there is a restaurant, I cannot say anything about that as I was eating that evening at the home of my client. What I can say is that it looked beautifully presented and I am sure it would have been very good.
After a comfortable night, I enjoyed an excellent breakfast before moving on.

Our group stayed at the hotel during 1 week, and everybody were very pleased by the comfortable rooms and friendly staff. We felt really welcomed, the whole impression was very good. Breakfast always was tasty, with different meals, and trays were replenished all the time we were eating. Additional advantage is a location within 10 minutes walk from historical center of Sansepolcro, so you can visit there whenever you want. My next trip to Tuscany I'll try to book this hotel again, as to me it is recommendable place also for its good proportion between price and level of service.
