From the moment we walked in the service was incredible. Very easy access to the hotel to get bags out, the beds were extremely comfortable, the pool and gym were great and the terrace with our bedroom was awesome. A very nice experience, would return and would definitely recommend.

This beautifully restored 14th c. building in the center of charming Radda provides a perfect base for exploring the many picturesque villages of Chianti. Our room was actually part of a suite with a large salon attached. It featured painted ceilings, original brick floors, and lovely antique furnishings plus all modern amenities. Breafast served in the ancient kitchen was bountiful and inviting, and you could take a tray up to the sunny terrace if you preferred. Staff was very helpful and accommodating, full of good suggestions and attentive to details.

We stayed here for one week on a Culture Discovery tour, loved the place. The hotel is Tuscan elegance, lovely rooms with lots of beautiful views of the countryside. Radda is also a pretty town, nice local shops and restaurants. The hotel has a spa, and several sister properties in the Ross Hotel group. We ate in several of their restaurants and all were very good. We felt welcome here.

We stayed in Room 1 and I saw rooms 2-3 as well. All are lovely.

We stayed here for 4 nights. We arrived after midnight and the gentleman manning the night shift could not have done enough to welcome us to the hotel, he even parked the car in once of the hilly side streets beside the hotel until we could move it to the free car park the following morning. Our room was clean, spacious, had a new bathroom fitted and a comfortable bed. There was a small indoor dipping pool in the hotel but the spa facilities are in the next hotel down, and you have to pay to enter the spa (at a discounted rate for resident) - I always find this disappointing, if you are a spa hotel your guests should be entitled to access the facilities for free in my opinion. I cannot fault them as they do make it clear when you are booking whether you will get a complimentary access to the spa. You can hear the bin lorries and anyone banging in the street in the morning through the windows but this is to be expected in an old property. We did not have breakfast. I would recommend the hotel as the location is brilliant for Radda in Chianti itself and as a central hub if you are travelling in and around Chianti in general as the free car parking is useful.

Radda is one of the prettiest towns iin the Chianti region with lots of competition. The Palace is right in the center of the medieval village and has some hints of former grandeur. The public rooms have an austere beauty. We were upgraded to a larger room, which had some advantages and disadvantages. Lots of room to putter around in. The room furniture didn't quite fit the Renaissance gentry, but provided plenty of seating, tables, desk, etc.

The wooden doors to our room were very old, awkward to open and close, and somewhat of a safety hazard if one had to get out in a hurry. My main criticism, and it seems to apply to so many hotels these days, is that the bathroom lighting was designed by someone who didn't have to use it. The big low level moon light on the back wall, and especially the thin fluouescnt strip around the large mirror over the sink provided totally inadequate lighting for shaving, putting on makeup or anything else you wanted to do around the sink. The huge white slab sink didn't drain properly. and with the poor lighting, it was easy to miss what parts sloped and what small parts were straight. The fancy rainwater shower unit worked all right, after some trial and error, but the floor was treacherously slick.

Having to come into the main street, by a gate, unload baggage, and then return to the parking areas along the outer walls was understood to be necessary; but no fun in the rain. We would also have preferred private secure parking, but early in the season was not a terrible detriment.

The hotel's restaurant is adequate, if not inspired; and there are many other options. THe breakfast terrace was quite pleasant, although the breakfast really wasn't of a 4 star standard.

As to wifi/internet access., it just doesn't work on the higher floors. I spent quite a bit of time trying and getting kicked out of their system-it reappearing when I took my laptop to the lobby,. The young staff is earnest and charming, and ready to make recommendations if you ask for them. All in all a pleasant, but not exceptional hotel with regard to its aspirations at the near luxury level. Kudos to the Ross Group for taking on 4 or 5 historic properties. This one isn't entirely up to speed.
