    internal restaurant has a limited menu. Price is ok, but not many options. If you want to have a nice dinner, you must to go out.

    great place. Room was very clean and confortable. Location is good.

    The really small shower in the otherwise large bathroom was a huge issue. It was very hard to squeeze through the gap in the sliding doors and once in it was impossible to reach up or down to wash legs etc. It was impossible to reach around for the shower wash bottle or shampoo. A new shower is desperately needed to ensure that this accommodation is consistently good in all areas.

    Location. Friendly and accommodating staff. Far enough from town to be quiet but close se enough to shops restaurants etc.

    Lack of wifi

    Extremely well located to reach Volterra town. The accommodation and the premises were very basic and not particularly pretty looking, as such I thought the cost was a bit high. It says there is wifi but it works only in one common area of the whole Hotel so not ideal if on a business trip. Breakfast was great and the staff was really kind and polite.

    Large spacious room with private terrace facing expansive countryside views. Our queen bed room also had a bunk bed for children. Plenty of space! Good breakfast with lots of salad and fruit. Very quiet comfortable stay. Not really walking distance to Volterra, but absolutely convenient with car.

    The location is fine to drive to but not for walking to Volterra. It involves some narrow dark roads with no sidewalks, especially worse at night. The room had ants but they gave me a different room right away. The breakfast was very basic.

    Extremely helpful and pleasant staff. They were able to change me to a different room without much hassle.

    Shower and bed were very tiny. Walls were very thin- could hear other people's conversations and snoring. Cheap, but 20 minutes downhill from city center- ie a 20 minute uphill walk with no shuttle service.

    Staff was very friendly and helpful. View from room was spectacular.

    Wifi only in common area is inconvenient

    Located just outside town, it is peaceful and very quiet at night. Breakfast buffet had a good variety of breads, meats, cheese, cereal, juice, etc. We ate a lunch and dinner and everything we had was very good. Not much of anything within walking distance.

    - location is outside the city and looks a bit abandoned (but it was raining when we came, so the opinion can be biased) - it would be nice to have something hot for breakfast and o bottle of water (or a kettle) in the room

    Actually there is only about 1 kilometer to porta selci from the hotel, which is not so far. Needed 13 minutes of walk including 100 steps at the end. Room was big and clean and breakfast way above italian standards. Taking in consideration good price, this is it. Be prepared for wifi, working only in bar and reception
