    Great staff - friendly and helpful Surprising pass to their camping pool Not great breakfast- needs fresh fruit for sure. Wished the room was a little more unique or at least decorated- air conditioning didn’t work and we were so hot all night

    Great easy location. Not really within walking to the city of Volterra. But close enough to drive 2 min to parking. Great breakfast and good dinner location attached/near the rooms.

    Buon Ostello/Hotel

    Buon Hotel/Ostello, personale simpatico. Un po' rumoroso la notte ( deve esserci non lontano un impianto industriale)... ma con la finestra chiusa il rumore è attenuato. Belle le sale e i chiostri. Camere essenziali ma molto pulite.

    Si tratta di un ex convento ristrutturato ed è una struttura di un certo fascino con una bella sala colazione affrescata. Si trova appena fuori dal centro storico e dispone di un parcheggio. Camera semplice ma confortevole, bagno spazioso, letto comodo. Personale gentile.

    Gradevole struttura in un contesto storico, ristrutturata discretamente, seppure semplicemente, in sintonia con il luogo.

    Confort monacal

    Le confort est minime. Certes, c'est un ancien cloître mais le charme ne compense pas le manque minimum de confort.

    Ci siamo fermati solo per una notte, ma ci siamo veramente trovati bene. Personale gentilissimo, chiostro molto curato, camere pulite e con tutto il necessario. Inoltre molto vicino al centro di Volterra, raggiungibile a piedi. Ottima scoperta!

  • 4.0.Fair

    La camera non aveva aria condizionata, ma un vetusto piccolo ventilatore, e il bagno era sprovvisto di bidet.

    Stadtnah und trotzdem ruhig

    Die Zimmer sind zwar schlicht, aber es braucht in dieser Umgebung nicht mehr. Das Gebäude, ein ehemaliges Kloster, ist zu einem Hotel/Hostel umgebaut. Gefrühstückt wird in einem Saal, der mit alten Fresken geschmückt ist. Das Frühstück war sehr lecker, mit Ei, Wurst und Käse. Es ist absolut ruhig, aber trotzdem Stadtbahn. Ich würde jederzeit wiederkommen.
