Località San Maurizio 39, Santo Stefano Belbo, Piedmont, Italy
"During our month-long Italian vacation, Relais San Maurizio is the only hotel we regret having stayed in. Mainly, due to the extremely tiny room and doll-house sized shower and bathrooms and inadequate reception staff - a “monastic” experience not worth the price. Bar and Breakfast service was excellent. Unfortunately, we could not get reservations for their One-Star Michelin Restaurant and the hotel made very little effort to accommodate us. There are plenty of great restaurants in nearby villages and communes. The Relais San Maurizio is located on a hill overlooking manicured vineyards located on lower surrounding hills. It has beautiful well-kept grounds There were plenty of mosquitos late at the afternoon that were a nuisance. The hotel has an undeniable good advertising program that led us to our stay. However, after our stay we consider it misleading and overplays its reality. On checkout, we were handed our paid bill without an envelope (we requested one) this is unheard of in any other Relais & Chateau boutique hotel where staff are better trained. Use a GPS app to locate the hotel since wayfinding signs are next to none. A winding road that takes you in and out of the hotel; it is not lit at night and could be dangerous. Suggest you use a hotel courtesy driver to visit other restaurants in the nearby communes"
"What a place! There are endless aspects of San Maurizio that I could fill several pages of TripAdvisor, but probably the most impactful is the help that we received from Valentina. She took care of us like family and we will return any time simple because of her. The facility is amazing. The food and accommodations or fantastic too."
"Outstanding location, beautiful rooms, and excellent restaurant at location. The area is great for day trips and visiting wineries. Two hours drive from Milan. Recommend for couples or families with older children. I’m definitely coming back! "

Via Alessandro Roero 2, Guarene, Piedmont, Italy
"We stayed in this hotel for 2 nights as a family of 3. Hotel personnel was very friendly to our 3 years old toddler. A great stay in the Covid times. Very big spaces and a loooot of personal spaces. A great restaurant with a very good cave full with the wines of the region. You can book the whole spa and i found it very practical in these very speacial times. There were two set menus on the restaurant sep/2020. We tried both of them and they were very satisfying. Hotel also has a wine shop connection. And if not satisfied they are helping you through wine shopping around if you kindly ask. Very beatiful views, i very highly recommend this hotel."
"This was the most spectacularly beautiful hotel room I have ever stayed in (as well as the most expensive). It was the next-highest category offered. The view as well as the decor and furnishings were all so gorgeous that it was like a wonderful dream. The bed and furniture were very comfortable and the plumbing worked well. Convenient and safe free parking, helpful service, excellent breakfast, lovely lounges and dining rooms. Some of the central halls are quite spectacular, and there are a few side rooms furnished as museums."
"We were only sorry that we did not stay longer to enjoy this beautiful hotel and property! The staff is very welcoming and helpful! We will highly recommend this beautiful Relais et Chateau! I would advise a minimum of three nights here, in order to enjoy all that Hotel Castello has to offer. We visited some excellent wineries in the area as well."

Frazione Annunziata 27, La Morra, Piedmont, Italy
"We stayed here in August as a family of 4 who travel extensively to nice hotels. We were very excited about the reviews we read and were expecting a 5 star experience, especially considering the price you pay. We had a luke warm reception on arrival. We enquired about dinner on property for that night, but were informed that the restaurant was closed for a private function that night and just closed the following night, disappointing. The views from the rooms are very good and the decor is nice. I would say for a family of 4 though, that they are too small and the sofa beds are really a one person bed. Our biggest issue was that the aircon was not working in our suite. It took two nights of back and forth with reception before they believed us and then on the third day admitted that there was a fault that needed a day of repairs. We decided to check out early at this point the next day, having already had 2 hot nights and facing a third. We were not offered a discount, not even a bottle of wine and barely an apology. Very poor in our opinion for what it cost us. Not very helpful and not overly friendly. Our rating of 2 is based on the views, otherwise would have been a 1. "
"We are frequent visitors to Barolo region and have stayed in several hotels, all nice but none perfect. Relais Arborina is in many ways the best. While not a full service hotel, it has a great location in vineyards, nice clean modern spacious rooms with great views and a small nice staff. There is a small spa with steam and sauna. Wireless is awful but otherwise a good choice for exploring this great wine region of Italy."
"Just an amazing experience at Arborina. The entire staff is warm, friendly, and provided wonderful hospitality. The property is fantastic - and provides a great base to explore La Morra and Piedmont from. A great start and finish to each day. The referrals that the staff provided were spot on. Always great and amazing. Looking forward to returning and enjoying the area and property even more."

Borgata Cerequio, La Morra, Piedmont, Italy
"Beautiful property, tucked away in the hillside of some of the most famous nebbiolo vines. The service is outstanding-- the family that runs the establishment and other staff are quite attentive and go out of their way to ensure your visit to the region is a memorable one. My wife and I stayed in one of the newly renovated modern suites (Duplex Ginestra). It was a beautiful suite, with a clean, modern-simplistic style. The two stories of large windows provide for amazing views of the vineyard hillsides. Wonderful spa features that provide for a very relaxing stay. We will definitely stay again during our next visit to the region!"
"This hotel is amazing. The room is very large, well appointed and the grounds spectacular. The amenities are perfect. The property literally sits in the middle of a vineyard and the views are spectacular. We were a bit worried that we were off the beaten track - but not to be. The property is well situated in the middle of everything great in the area. The staff also is first rate and so very helpful - they even helped me to coordinate tours of wineries that I had trouble contacting. This review constitutes my highest recommendation."
"We were staying for 2 nights and has a very nice time at the hotel - absolutely wonderful staff which cares about you and is eager to help you with anything. The location is beautiful, hotel restaurants is good, we’ve tried the wine tasting and had a good explanation about everything. The hotel is in the middle between 2 small towns - Barolo and La Morra, and you have a direct access to all walking trails that surround Piemonte Langhe area. Would definitely visit again - note that during October it tends to be fogy!"

Via Bava Beccaris, 1, Monforte d'Alba, Piedmont, Italy
"This was our first - hopefully not our last - stay at this wonderful hotel and we cannot recommend it highly enough. The location above Monforte is stunning, a perfect base to explore the Langhe and wider Piedmont region, the building is glorious as are the views from the terraces, the breakfast conservatory and numerous patios. Our large room was very well equipped with a wonderful view over the vineyards. The staff were, without exception, extremely helpful and couldn't do enough to make our stay perfect."
"Go for the views, stay for the friendliness of the staff and just kick back and enjoy the tranquility. Loved our stay here. The hotel is situated above Monforte d'Alba which means a walk down to the village for evening meals along steeply meandering cobbled alleyways, which means it's a steep walk back up again! But don't let that put you off. The views from the hotel grounds are stunning and on a clear day you can see the snow capped Alps and even Mont Blanc. We loved it!"
"A tiny village off the guide books but right in the middle of wine country. Amazing views and a beautiful hotel. The hotel is high up overlooking the village. The staff were extremely helpful, the room was comfortable and the pool area has views on one side of the vineyards and on the other, over the rooftops of the old city and down to the village center and beyond. The main building is old but beautifully preserved and maintained."

Via Bava Beccaris,3, Monforte d'Alba, Piedmont, Italy
"For years, we've based our stays in this area in Monforte d'Alba and watched the very gradual improvements made to accommodate tourists. We have often admired the appearance and situation of the building which became La Ribezza Hotel--a very elegant Liberty style at possibly the highest point in Monforte, with vineyard immersion and wonderful views of the village. So of course, we had to book it! I can report that we were very impressed with the entire operation and that we look forward to a return visit. The public areas are nicely furnished and lavishly decorated. There are a small pool, an outdoor terrace for drinks/snacks, an area that doubles as the breakfast area and then a bar area in the afternoon, and a small sitting lounge on the other side of reception. The rooms are indeed on the smallish side, but ours was well laid out, with a very comfortable bed, and good illumination. The building is far enough from the road that traffic noise was not a problem. As a treat, small cakes/cookies and teas are available all day--and I can't be sure, but it seemed to me that these are made in house. To us, what sets La Ribezza apart is the staff. From reception, to housekeeping, to the bar/breakfast (they do very good pancakes!) staff, everyone is helpful, friendly, responsive, and gracious. This transforms a nice stay into a fine one. One word of advice--to enjoy Monforte d'Alba the most, you will need to be able to handle some pretty steep hills--all downhill to the main piazza, but a fairly strenuous uphill all the way back. Or you can just stay in the hotel and chill."
"The property looks really beautiful and its location on the hill is amazing. The price they ask is really on a 5* level but there are so many gaps to deserve this 5th star. It started with the room we booked, they called it an executive room but we discovered to late that this was the name of the cheapest room. A small room with only a small window to get some daylight and almost now space around the comfortable bed. There is no water offered and ‘free’ coffee consists of only 2 nespresso cups with additional cups offered at the reception at 1 euro each... Although we drove almost 6 hours to get there, we even didn’t get a welcome drink offered. There is an unheated pool which is very very small and surrounded by too many beds which makes it too full around the pool. The free flavoured water at the pool is a nice geste. There is no additional service at the pool so if want anything you have to go to the bar by yourself. At arrival we had lunch but the selection is minimal and the quality not more than avarage. Waiting times to get serviced are awful. We travel quite a lot and usually don’t spend 300 euro a night, even not in 5* hotels, so expections were set quite high and we expected a real 5 start treatment. As an example: No towel replacement when the rooms are checked before the night. They say in the advertisement that there is a restaurant but that is actually outside the property and a few hunderd meters down the hill. Although the quality is quite good, the restaurant understands high pricing as well. The breakfast for 22 euro each was quite good although we missed the real fresh juice and nice selection of breadrolls. We read all the positive reviews of the hotel and we took the chance. Unfortunately we lost. Our rating here at Tripadvisor cannot exceed the level avarage and if we had to estimate the hotel classification if would not get more then 4 stars. "
"The hotel is full service in an absolutely gorgeous settings. It is high up on a ridge so it overlooks the surrounding hillsides covered in grapevines. There was also an amazing view of the snow capped alps across the valley. The room we had was small with a sitting area for relaxation. Given the time of the year we really didn't sit outside. The service was impeccable and the staff really went out of their way to be sure we were booked into restaurants and wineries. The breakfast was wonderful as were the linens and bed was so comfortable. The only negative is that it is in the very southern point of the Barolo region so travel to most places is 30 minutes on very winding roads. Although the village is Monforte d"Alba it is not Alba. The location wasn't much of a problem and the view was well worth it. We felt tucked away in paradise. We stayed close by for dinners to avoid traveling far on the steep, winding roads at night."

Fraz. Manera 1, Benevello, Piedmont, Italy
"Villa d'Amelia was the perfect home base for us on our recent wine-focused visit to the Piedmont. I was very impressed with the quality of the hotel relative to the price. Everything was very comfortable and I thought it was very good value. We would definitely stay again if/when we return to the area. In particular, the restaurant Damiano Nigro on the premises was absolutely spectacular. Would recommend securing reservations in advance. For anyone who needs driving in the Piedmont area, we would also highly recommend Daniela Maracine (daniela-maracine@hotmail.it) who was incredibly helpful to us on our recent visit. Daniela is very responsive and speaks English very well. She is knowledgeable about the area and has relationships and insight that helped add a lot of value to our trip. We could not have done it without her and would definitely use her again if / when we return. Especially for visiting wineries and vineyards - the roads are small and winding, and it is much better not to have to worry about drinking and driving around unfamiliar areas while on vacation."
"My boyfriend and I enjoyed a wonderful stay at Villa d'Amelia. The property was beautiful and in a great location of Peidmont. The staff was friendly and accommodating. The main restaurant at the hotel was very good. Our dining experience at Damiano Nigro was incredible. To facilitate our wine focused visit, we hired Daniela Maracine (Daniela.maracine@hotmail.it) as our driver for three days to get us to and from the hotel and the wineries. She was prompt in pick up and drop off, a great driver, and catered to our schedules. Daniela added so much to our experience! Most importantly she made sure to point out the beauty of each town of Piedmont and ensured we got to see as much as we could during our visit. Daniele helped to schedule lunch reservations and scheduled an additional special wine visit for us. Our trip would not have been the same without her guidance! I highly recommend to reach out to Daniela if you are staying the area. We truly enjoyed our stay and will absolutely be back to this part of Italy some day again!"
"I can only highly recommend this place - even for a stay in November (for the Alba Truffle festival) ! We were looked after so well by such a friendly team, given a great room with a little garden as we came with our labrador. Stunning views from most of the rooms and the restaurant. Lovely outdoor heated pool, then a relax in the Wellness centre with its sauna, steam room and hot tub. We had a drink in the very comfortable and attractive bar, ate in the DaMa restaurant (not Michelin star but you wouldn't have known it!) really delicious food and great wine recommendation. All in all a great experience and we will be back."

Strada Nicolini Basso, 34 - Loc Tre Stelle, Barbaresco, Piedmont, Italy
"We stayed here as a stopover en route down from Switzerland, hoping to eat truffles at the end of the season and to sample the wine in a beautiful setting. Casa Nicolini provided the perfect accommodation for this. We had a room with a gorgeous view over the vines and to the village of Barbaresco (we were given the suite, jacuzzi included, at a very reasonable price). The decoration is slightly dated and the amenities are basic, but this is a 3* hotel. The breakfast was served with a smile, and included fresh orange juice, fruit from the valley, and different types of non-dairy milk, so it exceeded our expectations. The staff were super friendly and accommodating to our requests. We can’t comment on the restaurant as we didn’t stay for dinner, but the number 1 restaurant in the region (as per tripadvisor) is in walking distance, so we were able to leave our car behind for the evening. Overall a highly recommended experience! Congratulations to the staff"
"The room is clean and spacious with a big bathroom, however my room on the ground floor right next to the staircase was not ideal as I was disturbed on the first night for almost 2 hours by drunken and inconsiderate female guests. Breakfast is very good with a large selection of cold meats, cheeses, pastries, breads etc. Evening taster menu on Friday was excellent and I would recommend this to anyone and for an extra €12 you get 3 local wines thrown in. Pool and gardens are lovely with a spectacular view over the valley. "
"We spent a lovely 2 nights here and thoroughly enjoyed it. Incredible views of the vineyards, staff we ever so helpful, professional and friendly, and great pool and restaurant. We wanted to extend our stay given we enjoyed it so much but only reason we didn’t was because the hotel was booked. Will definitely come back another time. "

Via Alba 15, Serralunga d'Alba, Piedmont, Italy
"I wanted to like this hotel more than I did. Rooms were fine (I was surprised they didn't have robes). We had a balcony and it was nice to sit out at night. The breakfasts were great! The chef makes great cafe americano (best we had anywhere in Europe) and my omelette both mornings was delicious. They were nice enough to accommodate us for an earlier breakfast as well, as we had to leave early our last day. Very convenient free parking, too, On the whole, the hotel is a large building. Rooms are on top levels and the entire downstairs is one very big room consisting of the breakfast area, a wine tasting area (never saw anyone there but I think that's what it is), and a bookstore. To me, the modern feel of an area whose history is so ancient- including that of the hotel itself felt out of place and somewhat antiseptic, though again- may just be personal taste. It would have been nice if there was an area to purchase bread and cheese or sandwiches to enjoy on the balcony or in the park that is part of the property. The hotel does not offer dinner and is somewhat isolated. Driving those windy roads at night (after maybe drinking some wine :-) was a little scary. A lot of potential- I hope they can figure out who they want to be."
"One of the best places I stayed in Piémont! The hotel is newly refurbished, the staff is very attentive, service is excellent, bed extremely comfortable, the pillows are super comfy (dear Hotel management- where did you get this pillows? I would like to order few for my home). We travelled with dog and the hotel is a dog friendly- even the dog bed they prepared was loved by our Labrador. The hotel has a wine shop, where they sell own produced and local wines. You can taste everything at their wine bar at the shop. They also have cellar tour but we didn’t have time to visit. The restaurant Bistro Guido, managed by the same family as the Michelin restaurant they also have, was excellent! We were at the fold heaven. Strongly recommended! "
"Design hotel, Modern minimalist architecture, friendly staff, delicious breakfast .we had been this hotel for two night.Here is a savoy ville, beatiful nature and wonderful garden. Very large vine yards"
