눉To be honest we only booked this hotel because it was in Volterra 3* and close to the Andrea Bocelli concert in Lajatico that we were going to. Very high up with a magnificent
view. The town is very old with lots of restaurants,tourist shops and tourists.You can only park on the perimeter of the town.
The hotel was old and tired. Our bedroom had paint peeling off the walls. We knew there was no air-conditioning but didn't know there was no fan! August is hot in Italy and this August no exception. Our bedroom window looked out on to a small back alley and a bit of greenery in the distance..this is no problem for us,we only use the bedroom to sleep but,because of the heat and no fan we were obliged to leave the windows open-this was a major mistake. Drunken revelers in the early hours kept us awake,followed by restaurants having their bottles collected at 5.30am etc left us with little or no sleep.
Two nights of this was more than enough and we were very glad to leave. Breakfast was appalling and we even decided to have lunch-a pizza- (Italy- Pizza !!!) and both of them were completely tasteless! The service however was good. Nothing more to say I'm afraid. I have written many reviews on Booking.com hotels we have stayed at,this will be the first ever,not recommended. Sad.
눇The very best thing about this hotel was its position and the female receptionist. Position,because it was very close to underground parking €15 per day and only a short walk away and the very helpful receptionist.
