    Noisy Rooms! Walls are paper thin and you can hear other guests having a normal conversation in their rooms. Very difficult to sleep with the noise and also very uncomfortable knowing everyone else can hear you talk. Tiny, outdated bathrooms despite nice size clean rooms. This place is cheap, but not worth it if you can’t sleep.

    Great views and lovely host at breakfast with good choices available to eat and drink.

    We couldn’t open the room’s window and room was a bit smelly beause of the dampness . It is an old hotel but pricey.

    The hotel’s general view, the scene of the lake is wonderful. The staff is wonderful they tried to make us comfortable.

    Italian experience

    If you're looking for a true Italian experience, this is your place! Don't expect boring luxury that you can find in top hotels. This is an authentic place, managed by an Italian family (I assume). They are super friendly and helped us with everything we asked. The breakfast is delicious - they serve great coffee, many types of croissants, Italian cold cuts, cereals etc. There's also a lake just next to the hotel! Great base for vineyards trips - we slept there 6 nights and every day we went to a different vineyard. Easy to get there from Pisa/Florence by car (highway most of the time).

    We have no complaints.

    Lovely family-run country hotel. The family and staff were very welcoming and helpful, and we got good advice on places to visit and local ammenities. The room, ensuite bathroom, and all linen was spotlessly clean, and neatly prepared for us each day. We looked forward to our plentiful daily breakfast. Mara, the lady who served us each day, is so extremely cheerful and bright and is truly a treasure. The hotel overlooks a lake, and is surrounded by extensive grounds with flowers, fruit trees, shady areas for sitting, and also a large area for parking. The train station San Giovanni Valdarno is just a few minutes drive away, which we found ideal for train travel to Florence. We enjoyed several other day-trips to nearby places of interest, all a convenient drive from the hotel. We would love to return for another stay.

    The shower was a bit small but overall it was totally fine.

    The personnel was really friendly and looking to help you as much as they could. The breakfast was also a nice surprise as we expected something light but it was actually pretty well served with a choice of italian cheese and processed meats, italian pastries, cereals, bread, biscottes, ... The hotel does not have a restaurant inside but there's a restaurant called La Gatta Nera a few hundred meters away which looks simple but where the food is delicious and typical.

    The uncleanliness of the garden and the terrace was a disappointment among all good things. With a better management the place could be much more popular.

    The view from the room window was beautiful. The room and the bathroom was a bit small but clean. The location was superb on the best part of the lake. Very peaceful yet 10 min drive to town. Breakfast was good and the service during the breakfast was exceptional. Thanks for the lady with a nice smile and sparkling blue eyes. After settling down in the room a glass of wine on the terrace looking to the lake close to dawn was something not to forget. No parking problem. Free Wi-Fi.

    The bathroom is really bad with the shower directly on the toilet, you have to choose if you want to take a shower or use the toilet. No air conditioning and pretty old furnitures. Walls are not really thought to protect from noise, easy to hear other people television or even snoring.

    The price is very good and the outdoor area is really nice. Staff is pretty kind. Mosquito net on the window is a must on the lake and thanks god they have it, so you can sleep comfortable even without air conditioning. Quite good breakfast, especially considering the price.

    My quibbles are minor. Lack of traditional facilities like a pool seemed inconsequential when compared to the peace and tranquillity you receive in exchange. Dated decor only added to the charm of the place. Also the lack of restaurant facilities out of season was minor.

    The hotel is in one of the most beautiful locations you could ever wish for. The hotel was a spotless, family run hotel in immaculate grounds serving a very good breakfast. The staff were excellent and nothing was too much trouble. Excellent value for money. If you are anywhere near Florence please do not stop in a city hotel. Fill your lungs with fresh air and stop at this beautiful place 40 minutes South.

    The breakfast was fine and delicious, but it was always the same, and we missed the local vegetables, like tomatoes. After the third day we had enough of the same prosciutto and formaggio.

    The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. The location was marvelous. The hotel was in a very silent and calm area, so it was a good place to return after our visits in the busy and noisy cities of Tuscany. It was a perfect starting point to explore Tuscany.

    The central heating might have been turned on longer at night. The cleaning works might have started after 8 a.m. so as to let the guests sleep a bit longer.

    A lady who served breakfast was extremely nice and helpful. She was so very kind that it was really remarkable. She changed the way the breakfast tasted in rhe best way possible. The food in itself was very good, but the lady's kindness and her service made it all unique. She the hotel's treasure.
