Fordele: Great location in the center of Montalcino. Our room was really an apartment - living/dining/kitchen area with a separate bedroom. Staff was friendly, helpful, arranged a wine tasting for us at the hotel owner's winery nearby.
This could be a nice hotel but ground floor rooms have problems with mustiness, mold/mildew. The dining experience is not great. The manager/owner should have been more concerned when we complained about our room, and she attempted to charge us (me and my brother, who had another room even worse than ours)the original rates for two rooms when we had moved into a suite together; she did end up charging the suite rate, fair enough.
Fordele: The booked room smelled and was not totally clean. We were given another room (with some resistance)which was clean, fresh, and nicely done.
Ulemper: the breakfast food varied from good (a fresh bread one day, eggs) to inedible (a baked pastry); the restaurant did have enough hint of cigarette smoke that i had to leave early, the owner/manager/cook was a smoker.
