We stayed here for four nights and could not believe our luck! No reviews onTrip Advisor meant that we felt we were taking pot luck but……what a find! To lie in bed with uninterrupted views of the Torre Guinigi from one window and the Tuscan hills from another is something that you would expect in a smart hotel, but to stumble across it in L'Altana was a wonderful treat. The location is ideal-just steps away from the Via Fillungo. There are two suites-we were in the Tower Suite which has a sitting room and bedroom. Although the bathroom is not ensuite it is a mere step across the landing (which is private to both suites) so is no hindrance. The bathroom is well appointed with a good shower, and the provision of robes was a nice touch which, again, you may expect in a high class hotel but here was a lovely surprise. Lucrezia (the owner?) is charming, helpful and speaks reasonable English. She emailed us with suggestions of restaurants to go to for our anniversary and made a special visit to give us the wifi password. Breakfast was brought to our suite at a time to suit us and was perfectly fine, but with a few minor improvements could be great (fresh juice, cold milk for cereal, plates for pastries/toast).
One word of caution-the physical price for those great views is a lot of stone steps to get up to L'Altana. Not a problem, I'm sure, for most people but thought I'd better mention it!
Overall, a great place that we highly recommend and consider ourselves very lucky to have found.
