We had a room with a beautiful view and two large windows for enjoying the breezes of Tuscany. Friendly hosts who served a great assortment of pastries, meat and fruit in the morning. My only suggestion would be to start serving a bit earlier, or have coffee available for the earlier risers. Close to the arch and right outside the...

We booked this hotel through Expedia and when we arrived we were disappointed to find that they had been overbooked. Although this wasn't the ideal start to our vacation, within the hour they had offered us a cafe and personally escorted us to another nearby hotel with the exact same conditions and price. Maybe next time we will get to...

This small gem of a hotel is located right beneath the Volterra city walls. The hotel is lovely, with comfortable and well-decorated rooms, and the most comfortable bed we had in many vacations. It's set in a nice garden, which would be an added attraction in summer (we were there in winter). The hosts are very nice, and the breakfast...

Volterra is a beautiful medieval town in Tuscany, & is definitely one of my favourite towns in Italy. It is not far from San Gimignano, but evidently lacks the tourism draw of that (also beautiful) town. This B&B is located very close to the city walls, just a couple of hundred metres from an Etruscan gateway into the town. The...

This hotel is conveniently located, just outside the walls of this beautiful Tuscan town. The rooms are spacious, nicely furnished, and clean. It only takes a few minutes to walk into the wonderful old city, though it's uphill. The hosts are lovely people and eager to help you with logistics or just to chat at breakfast. You do need to...

We stayed in a three-person room. The room was beautifully decorated, which made me feel comfortable instantly. Also good size, lovely view and very friendly owners. Wi-fi worked without a problem and the room was clean. Downsides were that the third person was on a fold-out-chair-bed instead of an actual bed, so not as comfortable. Also I dearly missed insect-screens...

Located about a 10 minute walk below the Volterra town walls, it is located in a 19th century Italian villa. Our room was nice enough for 3 people. The owner is welcoming though I had to rely on my memory of high-school Spanish to communicate with him in Italian (sic) - he does not speak any English. My only complaint...

My wife were really looking forward to staying in Volterra and this hotel based on all of the good reviews and with close it was the city center.

We only spent one night here, but thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The property is amazing, all the original touches give it character missing in new builds. The hostess was very friendly on arrival and gave us some information about the city, she told us about the house and how it had been in the family for many years. We enjoyed...
