With a hilltop location, Agriturismo Casa Colsereno offers panoramic views of the surrounding vineyards. Dating back to the late 1800s, it is a working farm that sells its own wine.

Location is good. Breakfast is nice.
No kitchen. Bathroom could be renewed.
The location was perfect, right across from the Fortezza inside Montalcino itself. The price was very reasonable and the rooms were clean and comfortable. We only had the included breakfast one day of our stay due to travel plans, but it was more than adequate. All in all I would recommend Il Refugio to anyone wanting reasonable lodging within the walls of Montalcino.
Staff was friendly but a little difficult to get in touch with. We had to call the cell numbers to find someone to check in with and when I got hold of someone, they didn't really speak English, so it was fortunate I speak a little Italian. Once we checked in there were no problems, however. Wi-Fi would be a welcome addition.
hard to check in and find owner
The excellent location of this hotel is, unfortunately, the only good thing I have to say about this hotel. I gave a good rating for the Wi-Fi only because it never cut-out (a standard feature of Wi-Fi in general in Italy).
There were no staff on hand throughout my entire stay (two nights), even during their supposed 'business hours' - including when I wanted to check-in. I had to call a number (at international rates using my mobile phone) that was written on a tiny piece of paper (that also declared their supposed business hours) stuck in the bottom corner of a window almost totally obscured by a pot plant, just to check-in upon my arrival which was during their 'hours of operation' on a week-day. I still waited for an hour before someone showed up. There was no maid service at all during my stay - so no bed made or replenishment of towels/soaps/toilet paper etc. The breakfast is not in the hotel but at a trattoria a fair walk away from the hotel. A long walk just for a very mediocre and unimpressive breakfast. Not very much choice, and none of the breakfast cereals were fresh and they tasted like cardboard (the cereals were clearly constantly left out in the open and never put away). When I first arrived at the hotel and had to wait an hour before someone arrived so I could check-in, I really wanted to just go to another hotel. But, of course, the hotel were already holding my credit card details hostage and as a minimum I would have been charged at least one night's penalty, so I really didn't have much choice. I am a regular visitor to Montalcino, but I shall never book this hotel again.
Fabulous view of the castle from our room. Great breakfast on the terrace of a neighbouring hotel (owner ran this too).Good location.
Breakfast was down some steep alleys. Did not bother us but would be a problem for anyone with a disability.Owner not on site so had to be contacted by phone on our arrival.
The location is good. It is a very simple hotel but the price is also fair. The room it is not that nice but it is ok. Bathroom is so so.
There is no attendent there, never... This will certainly give you some kind of problem. The breafast it is not in the same place as the hotel and the quality of the Good it is not Good.
Our first impression of the lady who greeted us was 'a bit strange' but it turned out she was in fact very helpful. The breakfast was basic but the same that we paid 15 euro per person for the day before. Excellent value for money, extremely original and quaint but still very clean. More stunning a view from the bedroom window, of a medieval Italian castle you can not better.
Felt like we were deep in old Italy. Old fashioned key to room. Shutters on windows that opened to reveal an old 14th cent. Fortress. The facade looked real and 400 yrs old.
Was hard for us to locate. Included breakfast served at a different location well down a hill (meaning a good uphill walk back). Thought Montalcino itself was skippable.
Comfort and breakfast
Owner was very relaxed :-)
Location and price..
Having to walk to another location for breakfast because they didn't serve it in the B&B when we stayed there(perhaps because it was low season?). Also, there was never really anyone around so it was a little difficult to check-out and pay for the room when we wanted to leave.
The location is fantastic, right across the street from the medieval castle and within easy walking distance to many restaurants. If you stay, definitely ask for a room on the top floor for the views and take them up on a wine tasting of the family's label.
The room is tired and needed maintenance. The overhead light fixture had a blown bulb and the toilet seat was extremely old and threatened to fall off several times.
Nice location, nice view of the fortress from the window. Nice cozy room.
WiFi can be accessible around the ground floor, front area. Not at all in the room on 3rd floor. The owner runs a restaurant and she is not always in the hotel front, I was not sure when arrived, and took some time to get in touch with her.
