Overall, we enjoyed our stay at the hotel. It is a hotel by name only – in fact Residenza d'Epoca Palazzo Buonaccorsi an 800-year-old house in the heart of the town. The entrance is inconspicuous – it’s a good thing we had clear directions to it. That said, don’t expect round-the-clock reception and your regular hotel facilities. We were greeted... More

Marzia and Pierluigi are always hard at work restoring this fantastic property in the heart of San Gimignano. The Palazzo is a great value. Very comfortable bed, staff on site, storage for luggage if you check in early or late, and location, location, location! A short walk up the street leads to the famous piazza with the well that you... More

Great place in the heart of the mediavel town. Doesn´t look like a hotel so you feel like at home. Lovely rooms with authentic furniture, shared bathrooms. Excellent reception service, well runnign wifi, deposit for bagage. Nice bar for breakfast or a drink in the neighborhood.

We spent two nights in the room you see in the presentation picture. Marzia and Pierluigi (the owners) were really frienldy and gave us all the practical information we needed, plus interesting historic facts about the beautiful building and the town of San Gimignano, and more. The room was clean, big and furnished with original furniture from the early '900s;... More

If you like 5 star hotels with pools and spas and golf courses don't come here. If you like individual, in fact unique places to stay that are typical of the region and steeped in history yet offer a high degree of comfort, stay here. I did, and I loved it.

We stayed right in the heart of San Gimignano at this family run hotel. Huge rooms furnished with antiques. After the tourists left, we had the town to ourselves. Carried our things up from the car which we parked outside the walls. Lovely central courtyard where you could sit with a glass of wine.

Located very well (although it was dificult to find it because there is no signage) this hotel is a great place for short stay in San Gimignano. Run by a friendly couple who advised us to move the car from expensive parking to free-parking place down the road (and it is very difficult to find free parking in San Gimignano!),... More

Central, polite staff. Honest staff.....when passports and money left behind we wet immediately contacted. We were v tired on arrival-early bed but woken by massed drums at presentation of la Palio. Wish I'd known.....would have attended! So not really a complaint!

The room was huge, and the building was really charming with uneven floors, a courtyard garden and charachterfuk rooms. We only stayed one night here, and the experience was really good. The town is right on your doorstep so the location was perfect, and you really felt like you were staying in an ancient Palazzo, which of course you are... More

We were really surprised that inside this great old door was such a superb place to stay. the Palazzo is in such a good position - within the walls and there was no problem to drive in and leave our luggage. The owner was very friendly and helpful telling us where best to park for free just outside the walls.Our... More
