This is another charming hotel in a charming town. We had a superior room that looked onto the main piazza (square). The room was large, clean and quiet. Although the town can drown under the weight of day trippers, at night it is quite special. And I cannot image a better hotel than this one.

Best quaint & quiet vacation spot for being in a prime location! Had triple windows so can't hear the people outside. Stayed 5 days in this beautiful little gem. It's simple but sweet. The staff was nice and had fantastic food recommendations, especially from Lisa. We found their restaurant recommendations to be better than the highly rated ones on TA.... More

This is a very charmy hotel right in the middle of the medioeval village of San Gimignano. The location is just perfect! You can walk to all the sights within the old walls. Our room was cozy and nice, but not very big. However the view was incredible! Overall it was a very confortable stay. The only very minor problem... More

An excellently located hotel on one of the main piazzas in San Gimignano. The front desk was very helpful, I had a lovely view and the wifi worked. Breakfast was the standard Italian buffet, but the staff was unfailingly pleasant. Would recommend

Had a two centre Tuscan holiday, a week in a villa in the hills then 4 days at the seaside, so going between the two we had one night here as we had often looked in the door on previous visits and said 'wouldn't it be nice to stay there?' Well it was! Right on the square, very welcoming staff... More

Greeted by hostess Lisa who provided guidance to drive into hotel during the day. Interesting maneuver through gate on via S. Stefano with Jeep Cherokee and 11th century structure. Narrowly escaped scraping Jeep on walls. Had to fold in mirrors in order to pass through. If traveling by car recommend smaller vehicle, perhaps Fiat 500L. Lisa delightful and helpful. Knows...

The location of this hotel over the square was superb! The concierge gave us excellent advice. The town for dinner is dead though! The breakfast was fair. The hotel was great in storing our bags and allowing us to drive right up to the hotel with our bags.

Dear Guest, thank you for your very nice comments about our hotel! From the end of October in San Gimignano starts the low season, for this reason is so empty the evening, but you can appreciate the original and authentic atmosphere of this wonderful town, maybe also with a little fog in autumn between the towers...it's romantic! Thank you again... More

I recently stayed at this hotel with my nephew and sister. I can't say enough about the location and the general feel of the hotel. It is very classy and clean with a nice breakfast included.
