Only 10 minutes away from San Gimignano, and 15 mins from lovely small Certado (great place for dinner - L'Antica). I booked it last minute and stayed only one night. The room is quite big and comfortable with a beautiful Tuscan view from the window. Big (accessible!) bathroom. Its a lovely small family run hotel, Arto and his family are... More

What can you ask for more? A kind and courteous host who personally welcomes you to his hotel, offers suggestions regarding itineraries throughout your stay and prepares a sumptuous breakfast of cakes, focaccias, bruschettas, fruit, cheese and cold cuts? The location of this hotel is ideal to reach all major points of interest in Tuscany, including San Gimignano, Volterra, Florence,... More

The hotel owner personaly met us when we arrived and showed us the room and the very smal and personal hotel. The standard is very high and we were really suprised by the comfort of the room. The hotel owner personaly served us home made breakfast and recomended us some really good restaurants in town.

Stayed here for only one night on June 13th; if we had known how good it was, we would have stayed longer. This is listed as a one star hotel. I don't understand. Easily a three star – closer to a four. It is, for sure, better than some four star hotels we stayed in in Italy. As for the... More

We enjoyed a memorable week at this hotel. Our host, Elio and his wife Stephania were truly kind and always helpful in providing wonderful breakfasts, good travel advice and a warm, clean, and very comfortable facility. Located in Ulignano, just outside San Gimignano, enabled us to really see the Tuscany area, which by itself was beautiful and inviting. We would... More

We stayed here for two nights at the end of our week in Tuscany and Umbria. First week of June. Loved it! No need to repeat the positive reviews left by other guests; we agree with them all. First impressions count and being greeted by Elio with his sincere smile and welcome when we arrived was a delight. We entered... More

After reading all the reviews, I have expected a lot out of this place. Besides the proximity to San Gimignano (I tend to stay close but not right at a tourist attraction to avoid the crowd and for easier parking), the spacious room, the breathtaking view of Tuscany from the room (ask for one that has such a view, not...

I've been to sleep in this hotel after a very hard day with my family. At the entrance shows one star hotel, but it's five stars! I highly recommend it, the family who runs the hotel is wonderful, the atmosphere is relaxing and the ambient with his bedrooms is rich in details. Very very good breakfast with typical Tuscan fresh... More

Most pleasant with worm welcome attitude by the owners, Mr. Elio and Mrs. Stefania. This hotel is highly recomened and we'll stay again in our next Toscana trip The hotel is strategicly located near San Gimignano and with short access to the main Toscana sights. Haim and Tova. .
