GREAT LOCATION, GREAT VIEWS
4 su 5 stelle - Recensito il 18 ottobre 2013
We stayed at this hotel for 4 nights on a recent Riviera trip and if I could give 31/2 stars overall I would: 4 stars is generous, 3 a bit mean. The hotel has lots of plus points, including an excellent location just outside the Etruscan gate (a 10 minute walk uphill gets you to the centre of Volterra, but you can get a bus), breathtaking views across the countryside and elegant furnishings in the very attractive reception area. My husband enjoyed the pool and the sauna (there is also a jacuzzi and spa on the lower ground floor). The waiting staff were both helpful and good fun, though one member of the reception team was a bit grim on occasion. The bedrooms are tiled but have good storage and the shower was powerful with a constant supply of hot water - not always the case when you are on the top floor of a hotel.
The weak point of the hotel for me was the food. Breakfasts provided a good choice if you ignored the hot food issue but the standard of evening meals varied. Some courses were very pleasant others less so and if you don't care for squid/octopus etc your choice could be rather limited.
Overall I would consider the facilities and general ambience of the hotel to be worth 4 stars, but not other features.
