I have tried to book now several times a one stay night through different booking platforms. The hotel always refused my one night booking. I assume that the hotel at high season on this particular week-end wants to sell the room for the whole week-end...More

Booked this place directly with the owners. Knew before hand (it's a pensione, not a B&B) that breakfast wasn't included. Cost really wasn't that bad and the rooms were OK. The plumbing (welcome to Italy) was a disaster. The only problem - as described here...More

Sir, You had chosen to spend a night in Radda in the same week end of the wine tasting along the village " Radda in the glass". It is not responsibility of the hotel if you were disturbed by noises coming from outside ( I...More

sirs, Your review has OBVIOUSLY been written by somebody who has never lodged at our hotel, and I'm going to explain you why: 1- the hotel isn't a bed and breakfast, there isn't any restaurant or dining room, as clearly explained on every website. If...More

Nice hotel in a small but very 'tuscany' village. The hotel has no services but the room was very spacious and warm which was very welcoming since we arrived on a cold December night. We were welcomed by a smily lady that had been waiting...More

Sirs, Since you already knew that breakfast wasn't included, I don't understand why you write about it (are you maybe just looking for a reason to complain?). The pensione doesn't have a restaurant, but it is placed in the very centre of the village, and...More
