We recently stayed at this hotel for 2 nights. We booked the cheapest accomodation that had twin beds because we were Only at hotel to sleep. Hotel was nice, allowed us to store bags since we arrived early. Room was good size, had ackward layout and a view of parking lot---guess you get what you pay for---room was very clean and had a nice sized bathroom by European standards. One major dissappointment is that they will not allow you to take your own wine out to their terrace, you must purchase their wine....this was the only hotel I stayed in that was this way, all others would allow you to take your own wine to the terraces... We had done a wine tour with Franco Fadda (check out tripadvisor he was excellent) and wanted to drink some of the wine we bought on the tour ended up drinking in our room.
Hotel is about a 5 min uphill walk to everything. There are some great restaurants on the way into the main area of town from the hotel. The staff is helpful if you need recommendations.
I would say for the price the hotel was good, however lacked some of the Tuscan charm of other hotels.
