Guest reviews for Castello di Spaltenna

Everyone (1) Couples (1)
1 out of 5
The hotel staff is rude and unhelpful. The rooms are in serious need of renovation and the bed was as a hard as a rock. This was such a disappointing experience for a honeymoon couple. We had a problem exchanging our American money and they were not helpful until someone from home called to complain about their rudeness and lack of concern. Even after complaining the staff on that day we left refused to help me change my train tickets. He suggested I call and when I said I could not from my phone from the states because it didn’t work he didn’t offer to call for me or ask if I would like to use the hotel phone. We feel we were treated badly for being young and American. Do not stay here! I promise you will be disappointed!

A true 5 star castle in Tuscany

Pros: Everything
Cons: Our GPS had a hard time finding it. We had to rely on road signs for the last 15-20 minutes to get there. Not a big deal unless you think GPS is great
Location: This is in the mountains of Tuscany, in the center of Chianti. As such, there is a small town nearby, but you will need to drive to go elsewhere.
If you are looking for a romantic escape, or a quiet place for your family to unplug, all the while enjoying the fruits of a location in central Tuscany, look no further. This is quite simply Heaven. We took our eleven-year old daughter and stayed for several days in late September, and enjoyed wonderful weather, even to the point of the outdoor pool. We ate at the fine dining restaurant, which is NOT to be missed with its multi-course gourmet meals that far surpass the prices charged in quality, service, and the sheer number of complimentary courses and wines that accompany your meal. The breakfast bar is fresh and offers anything you could need, and we enjoyed eating alfresco almost every meal without question. We took over a two bedroom suite, and while it was large for our needs, was perfect for a semblance of isolation that our family needed. The wifi worked well when we needed, the cell reception from the U.S. worked better than I would have liked, and all our needs were met immediately. In fact, I can't remember a staff person who ever said anything other than: "Yes, of course," to any of our requests. Go there. Use it as a base to explore Florence, southern Tuscany, Umbria, or Pergia. Drive around aimlessly and find restaurants, wineries, or places to buy olive oil. And at night, go back to the warmth and security of your Castello.
