Very quiet while we were there but the experience of staying in a castle like location was good. Not too much around it however so you'll need to find somewhere for dinner.

L'Hotel della Fortezza è una location molto particolare e romantica, essendo stata ricavata all'interno dell'antica Fortezza Orsini. La camera che mi è stata assegnata era molto spaziosa (due finestre) ed aveva una splendida vista sul paese di Sorano, che rimaneva più in basso. In camera c'erano mobili antichi, tappeti ed un grande tv lcd. Anche il bagno era ampio, ma dotato di pochi punti di appoggio. I locali comuni sono ristretti (non c'è una hall vera e propria), ma bisogna tener presente la funzione originaria dell'edificio. La colazione è stata di buona qualità, pur mancando frutta fresca. Il servizio reception termina alle 20.00. In sintesi si tratta di un ottimo tre stelle, ideale come base per visitare i paesi dell'entroterra grossetano. Consigliato alle coppie giovani e mature in fuga per un romantico week-end.

This is an amazing place to stay -- a true Fortres. The town is Sorano can't be beat for charm. NOTE there is a bit of a hike from parking to the hotel and LOTS of hills / stairs in town, but well worth it.

Hotel has met and somehow exceeded our expectations in a very good manner. Room was clean, employee very welcoming and ready to fullfill all our needs and concerns. Very good breakfast and it would be excellent if a couple of eggs were provided. The only concern has been with spaciousness of our room: a good single one, a little small for a couple. This also fostered the need of a A/C, not available (and actually not so necessary if you were alone). Probably this was the counterpart of a very discounted rate (around 50% discounted). We have seen other rooms and... we'll certainly book again this Hotel in the future, to experience those one. Very good stay.
