Pleasant stay. Located within a short walking distance from the Volterra. Restaurant was nice, had my first experience with wild boar and became hooked. The staff was very helpful and communication in English was no problem.

The service at this hotel is good - the receptionist is very polite and helpful. But overall, the hotel is not very pleasant - it has everything needed for a very short stay but nothing more. The wi-fi is not reachable from the rooms.

We booked this hotel principally because of its rooms for disabled access, Our expectations were exceeded mainly because the staff all had a very friendly helpful and natural manner and did everything possible to make our stay a pleasure. We found the room, beds and pillows (others complained about) firm but not hard and ideal for a good night's rest'...

Large hotel . Basic rooms but very clean. I agree with reviews beds hard and pillows the same. But why we would stay there again was the staff and service. When they couldn't get a taxi for us to go into town, a staff member drove us. Paola at the desk was everywhere in the hotel making drinks for us...

This was a fine little hotel a little out of town so I was grateful to be driving. The rooms were small but clean and had a cute little terrace with a view. Wifi only in one common area which was frustrating but in saying that I met some lovely people being forced to sit there. Staff were scarce.

We booked for the Hostel Chiostro delle Monache, but when we arrived it was closed and we were referred to Hotel La Foresteria, where we were already expected by the staff. La Foresteria is a very good hotel, very clean, good breakfast and good dinner. As the hotel is far from Volterra walls, we chose to have dinner in the...

Overall pretty good value for Italy. The room was spacious and clean, great view, quiet and decent. The mattress was very firm, but we didn't mind that. The pillows were awful, i've never seen pillows like that before, that was the main downside. That and the fact that there was no tea/coffee in the room. Otherwise, a decent place to...

I had booked a converted monastery in Volterra and somehow ended up at the just above tourist class hotel. It was okay for one night though didn't meet my anticipation at staying in an old monastery. Also ate in the restorante in the hotel with a fixed menu. Much of the charm in Tuscany is the discovery of the food....
