What I liked:

The location is very convenient for exploring the western and central part of Tuscany; about one hour from both Lucca and Sienna and very close to San Gimignano. The hotel has a good restaurant with great service.

What the hotel could do better:

We stayed in the new part of the hotel as we liked the modern and new design of the rooms and thought the 'old' part was a bit outdated. However, views from the 'old' rooms are much nicer. The swimming pool is located next to the public road, so we didn't use it. Prices for drinks from the minibar are very high. No complimentary water. Wifi is not included in the classic rooms and costs eur 3,00 for 30 minutes. For this reason, we chose to upgrade to a superior room. In conclusion, we didn't like the very 'commercial' feel of the hotel, which we didn't expect in such a small village in Tuscany, and would choose a smaller hotel with a better atmosphere next time. Not what we're used to from Tablet hotels.

Hotel Description

If you’re a fan of extraordinary hotels, then you’re a fan of Italian hotels, almost by definition. (We’re fans of both, of course.) Seemingly every city, every town, every village and every third or fourth country estate is home to a lodging that excels in design, in luxury, in creativity, in cuisine, or some combination of the above. And in the 16th-century Tuscan hilltop village of Montaione, about midway between Florence and the seaside, the local hotel of note is the UNA Palazzo Mannaioni.

Original stone exteriors pay homage to the building’s history, while the interiors effortlessly incorporate contemporary interior design alongside period architectural details — another reason, as long as we’re gushing, to love the Italian boutique-hotel style. Some face inward over the pool and courtyards, others outward over the village rooftops, and the suites expand on the rooms’ already quite generous space.

Another Italian hospitality classic is the restaurant under the arched ceilings of the old olive mill — in Palazzo Mannaioni’s version the local specialties are accompanied by vintages from the old wine cellar (itself doing double duty as a private dining room). Add a stylish cocktail bar and the prospect, seasons permitting, of a drink by the pool, and you’ve got another stellar example of the good life, Italian style.

How to get there:

UNA Palazzo Mannaioni is located about 6 miles from San Gimignano, and about 30 miles from Florence and Sienna. It’s about an hour’s drive from Florence Airport, Peretola (FLR). For further information or assistance with transportation, please email CustomerService@TabletHotels.com.
