    A bit close to the road. The pool is smaller than it seems in the photos.

    Clean, nice room with nice furniture. The building is beautiful- it was an old convent. The pool is very nice.

    Expecting much more from a 4-star hotel!

    WiFi was too slow and dropped frequently. This is unacceptable in 2018 in a 4-star hotel! Moreover, there is no elevator in the building which makes it difficult to carry the luggage upon check-in/out. We happened to have a room over the restaurant which was a bit noisy in the night and morning.

    The room was simple but pleasant. The bed was comfortable. The shower stall in our room was very good: Spacious with consistent water pressure/temperature.

    Brekfasts could be more generous as there was no 'warm buffet'. There was a possibility to order a warm meal but we had to ask a waiter first (no menu). Our room looked a little bit like under reconstruction.

    Nice staff, historical building

    There is no anything that we didn't like. Only suggestion, in some places on the wall paint is not perfect and its getting down.

    The hotel is very nice and it's close to Florence, but far enough to don't feel all the noise of the touristic city. The room is big and clean with a big bathroom. People work there very nice and kind. The food in the restaurant very good and not so expensive.

    I really expected more from the breakfast on a 4-star hotel. If you're planning to use the sauna, prepare to pay €15 per usage (I went on the summer and was not planning to, but I saw there on the menu and found it pretty alarming).

    Very nice location to be the starting point of driving around Tuscany. Only 30min from Florence and 50min from San Gimignano. The staff was super helpful with all requests (travel tips, restaurant indication, etc). The dinner is marvelous and very nicely priced (I'll dream about that steak with trufels sauce for a long time nhomnhomnhomnomnmom).

    Not a major issue but Wifi in corridors only and unfortunately our reservation for dinner at the hotel was cancelled due to closure of the restaurant that night (they did offer to book a table at other restaurants in the area).

    We stayed early Oct during a thunderstorm but was still a great stay. Amazing, quiet triple room and value for money. The staff were wonderful, extremely friendly and helpful (in particular the young lady who had recently started). Great breakfast. Would definetly recommend.
