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.
