Travelled with partner
Disliked: Staff & service
My partner and I stayed for 3 nights, Thur-Sun, last week. This is definitely more of a B&B than a hotel and from our experience, 3 stars is rather generous. On arrival at 3:30pm the hotel was closed and we had to call staff to check in. We waited nearly 30mins. The room we were given was on the ground floor right by the entrance (no.24). It was clean, but rather dark and dingy. There were only 4 clothes hangers provided. The road was also quite noisy. The hotel is just a 5 min walk to the old town, which was excellent and there are plenty of places to eat. Although, you have to walk along the edge of a busy road and I would be wary if you have children. We also returned to the hotel at 10pm in complete darkness, which felt rather strange. In the mornings we were woken by people talking outside our room by the entrance and smoking by our window. Breakfast was fine, but rather basic. As the hotel began to fill for the weekend, parking became problematic, by Saturday we had to park a 10/15min walk down the steep hillside at a local supermarket. On Sunday, we were told to check out by 9am, however at 8:30 reception was still closed. We had to call staff back to the hotel again and had to wait over 20 minutes. It was rather stressful, as we had a flight to catch. So overall not a particularly relaxing stay at this hotel, but it was cheaper than other accommodation in the area. Volterra is an exceptionally beautiful town though and we enjoyed the area very much.

Disliked: Staff & service
My partner and I stayed for 3 nights. On arrival the hotel was closed and we had to call staff to check in. They said 10 minutes it was 25. Not too much of an issue, as it was a nice sunny day while we waited, but we had a long journey and were tired and hungry, so not ideal. The room we were given was on the ground floor right by the entrance. It was clean, but very dark and dingy. The road was also quite noisy. We were hoping for a room more similar to those photographed. The hotel is just a 5 min walk to the old town

Would visit again
The location is better than indicated as although just outside the wall it is only 5 minutes from main square. The building is more of a large house than hotel which was fine for us. The reception is only staffed on checkout and checkin, to checkin had to wait 30 minutes in the heat and make several phone calls. The staff were friendly especially the breakfast staff and served very good coffee, on the downside breakfast day one expectable but more fruit on second day, room was cleaned each day. Would visit again especially if arriving by car although a car is not necessary as there is parking.

Boutique hotel very close to old town
We only had 1 night in Volterra but found the hotel very good. Parking on site was a plus and it couldn’t have been closer to the old town. Just a short uphill walk to the town Gates. We had to leave early the next day so staff arranged early breakfast. Nice outdoor area for afternoon drinks.

Nice hotel
Good location, right outside the town, short walk to the stairs. Room with a full and a twin. Twin was uncomfortable, like a pull out couch.
