UNA Palazzo Mannaioni4.0 out of 5.0

Not sure how to review this one. On one hand it is an elegant, well appointed hotel. The bar and restaurant areas are well decorated and have a luxury feel to them. We were however dissapointed in our room. Whilst it was comfortable and clean, we were expecting more from a superior double in a 4 star hotel. We deduced that the only differance between a standard and a superior is the view....though ours could hardly be described as spectacular and could only be enjoyed from certain angles. The bathroom was especially dissapointing. Small and cramped. The shower was a tiny corner unit that larger guests would struggle with. The shower would also not stay tight in the holder due to the water pressure (a personal pet peeve of mine). We returned from our first evening out and decided to have a nightcap in the bar before bed. Reception told us the bar had already closed despite it being only 11.10pm and the bar being advertised as open until 11.30pm. No explanation was offered. We were earlier the second night and managed to get 2 glases of limoncello.....though at €6 for a small glass we wished we'd stayed in town where even the best restaurants only charged €2.50. The pool area was pleasant, though the sun loungers had seen better days and only 9 didn't seem nearly enough for the size of the hotel. The pool was also closed all day on our second day for cleaning. All in all we enjoyed our stay though it seems the days when you could expect a touch of luxury for 4 stars are gone.
The hotel was was in a nice, central location within Tuscany. Montaione is a quaint, hillside town and our room was very nice, but less modern than the newer part of the hotel. The room is comfortable and has heat when e needed it during a cool April period. Italy controls A/C start up (June 1st), from what I understand, so hotels could be warm if it is a hot spell. I wouldn't want to leave the windows open as I think the pigeons would come on into the room. The blow dryer was functional, but an odd looking and one speed contraption. Beds are a little firm, but overall a nice room with a safe. We recommend getting a superior room for a better view and experience. We saw a room in the newer part of the hotel and it was very spacious and nice, but perferrred ours with the view (photo below). Breakfast was good and had a nice variety of foods: meats, eggs, cereal, fruit, yogurt, etc. The service was good that we experienced albeit was limited.
The hotel was very clean and very central for restaurants and shops nearby. A very good base for exploring Tuscany. We were in the newer part of the hotel and our room was very large with a good sized bathroom and was very well decorated. The restaurant where we had breakfast had a lovely vaulted ceiling and was very characterful. Service was really good and we were treated to a fabulous wine tasting in the hotel's cellar which we really enjoyed. A slight negative was the distance to get breakfast every morning from the new part.....we had to go through a tunnel and through the gardens to get to the restaurant and reception which wasn't great when raining. Also our room did not have any drawers......so nowhere to unpack clothes which was not ideal when staying for a week! The room was plenty big enough to accommodate some as it had a huge desk with a mini bar which took up a whole wall???( Totally unpractical design I think) Apart from these 2 points we really enjoyed our stay and had a great week thank you
We had a very pleasant stay in this nice hotel. Rooms are modern,clean and spacious. There is also an underground parking (9euro per day). Staff is very polite and helpful and restaurant delicious!! Really recommend to stay here if you want to feel the Tuscany atmosphere. Only one thing was not very good - they have two parts of the hotel (modern and old part) and modern is not part of the old building so we had to go around the outside pool to the reception and restaurant.
Simply the best stay!!! 5stars!!! Pleasant and very nice hotel The village is beautiful The staff and service are rare to find Far more than you can expect Thank you very much!!! Special thanks for To mr Luca You are the best!
We picked this hotel because we had a voucher for a free stay, so I can't say a lot about value for money. We had a very spacious room and bathroom, both were modern and clean. Staff was friendly and advised us on restaurants in the neighborhood. Breakfast was a buffet with lots of options. The hotel has a pool, but that's only open from June to September, so we were too early.
We did not realize this was not a hotel, but we were not disappointed. We had an awesome loft room with two bathrooms and a kitchen. There was not daily maid service since we were staying less than three days. The staff was very helpful and suggestions of places to eat and how to get around. The location is just over the bridge from downtown. Great location with a slight walk.
Hotel is situated in a 16th Century villa in the old city. No two rooms are alike. Our room was small but comfortable with a very nice bath. Restaurant breakfast was ample with both hot and cold food. If you stay here try to avoid the. 07 rooms. 107, 207, 307. They are the smallest.
Just back fron our 2 nights stay in this hotel and we were very pleased byt our stay. We had a room in the "old" part of the hotel (as per our request) and we really appreciated it. The staff is very friendly and professional. The hotel is in the historic centre of Montaione, a marvellous village which I don't know why is out of the usual touristic routes in the region. I would recommend this hotel and would like to come back soon.
There are two sections of this hotel, an old and a new new. The new requires going outside and crowding under the street. The rooms are nice and have plenty of room. The older part has a nice feel and are in the same building as the restaurant. Like many older buildings, not all rooms are equal. Great front desk staff. Dining staff not so happy. The town is very small, very nice with great views.
