San Gimignano is a beautiful medieval hilltop town in the rolling Tuscan countryside. I knew it was famous but didn't realise until i got there just how much of a tourist mecca this world heritage listed place is. The hotel L'Antico Pozzo was a perfect place to stay, I was very lucky to be able to book a room at... More

The hotel location is fantastic. We went back and forth between staying somewhere outside the walled town where you would get beautiful views and staying in the town. We are so happy we opted for inside the town. The roads are narrow, winding and up and down; we did not want to drive at night. The town comes alive after... More

In previous trips to San Gimignano, we never stayed overnight. What a treat to enjoy the evening in the center of this most charming town. Arriving to a warm welcome, we were then shown to o spacious and charming room. When we asked to visit friends nearby, a car and driver were arranged quickly and efficiently. Claudio, the hotel's driver,... More

+ Great location, near parking and right in the center of the village. Staff was very helpful and friendly! Breakfast was good and they made very good cappuccinos. Nice inner court yard where breakfast was served - Bed was hard and AC was a bit noisy so it was hard to get a good nights sleep. AC was also leaking... More

Perfect position in the heart of the old town. Loved waking early in such an elegant medieval building hearing the town come to life. Simple rooms.... some with frescos....some with four posters.

Had the pleasure of staying 3 nights in May, at this family owned hotel. It was recommended in Karen Browns book,(now out of publication), and it was spot on. Having breakfast (included in the price) in the enclosed garden puts you in the right frame of mind for the whole day. In the afternoon or early evening, jump across the... More

Getting to the hotel was quite an experience. We had not been to San Gimignano before and had no idea that there was no parking at the hotel. It also didn't help that it was Republica Day -- a national holiday -- and the city was overrun with people! We used our GPS and it directed us to the hotel,... More

We stayed here with our 12 year old son in the last week in May 2014. We had requested a room overlooking the courtyard and were given room 33.

This hotel was by far the highlight of our trip to Tuscany. San Gimignano was our first stop and we felt completely spoilt in this charming rustic Italian accomodation. The room was absolutely gorgeous (triple room) and overlooked the main Piazza. We felt like we had the place to ourselves as there are few rooms with little else apart from... More
