We were in Volterra and most hotels were booked, so the Albergo Nazionale was about the only choice with a roof. It is an older seedier place. If there is a fine line between quaint and seedy the Nazionale passed it years ago. The gentlemen who checked us in was stone-faced, and spoke no English. Not a requirement, mind you,... More

Albergo Nazionale is a no frills hotel located in the center of Volterra. It's the perfect choice for a quick visit and for those on a budget. The rooms are reasonable & very clean. Definitely request a room on the top floor.

Great central location and nice room with window opening over a square. Woman on reception in morning was working very hard but kept smiling and not only let me use her computer to book accommodation but called up the hotels for me and checked they had rooms and spoke English. Very pleasant. Breakfast was also good

I recently travelled to Volterra for a wedding and stayed at the Albergo Nazionale. I can't fault these guys on anything. I had the smallest room in the hotel, extremely cheap and still got a kingsize bed. Staff were very helpful. Grazie mille.

Was easy to access from the bus drop off and centrally located to the entire city of Volterra. Had seen complaints about the surly front desk staff, but only encountered that with the male night manager,all of the ladies that worked other shifts were very friendly and helpful.
