We stopped for two nights, the hotel is in the middle of the town over looking the piazza. We asked for a room overlooking the countryside and the views were wonderfull. You can drive to the hotel to drop off luggage but you have to park outside the walls in the public car parks which vary in price. I did... More

As long as you come expecting a 3 Star Hotel you will be more than satisfied. The location itself is 5 Stars all the way and the rooms provide not only a stunning balcony with views overlooking the surrounding breathtaking countryside but also a charming window that opens to the gorgeous medieval square below. While the room itself is spacious... More

This hotel is in a great location. We were right in the middle of town and had great views of the countryside from our window. The room was spacious, clean and well serviced and the staff were great and spoke English well. I would recomend this hotel to anyone.

This hotel is right in the center of San Gimignamo, overlooking the piazza. It was as if time stood still as all the buildings were at least 800 years old, including the hotel. The view from our room was spectacular, as we could look out over the piazza and see all the comings and goings of this busy town. And... More

let us get one thing straight, this is not a luxury hotel – it is a 3 star hotel of very good quality. The staff were always friendly and helpful, there is a small gymnasium attached, there is a great little bar restaurant downstairs, breakfast is very good, our room was a good size and we paid extra for what...

With no planning for a quick getaway, we landed up checking in to Hotel Leon Bianco smack bang in the centre of this medieval town. The perfect location if you want to be immersed in the atmospheric feel of this quaint but vibrant place. Being high season we were limited with choice and availability. We were offered a room for...

Prior to our 5 night stay the hotel recommended and arranged dinner reservations at some of SG's best restaurants which was just as well as there was great demand at this busy time. Reception staff were most helpful in explaining the intricacies of driving and parking around the city and we were able to leave our hire car safely and... More

The best thing that this hotel has going for it is that it is in San Gimignano. In general the hotel has nothing outstanding other than that is in the middle of this wonderful mediaeval town. The rooms are well equipped with windows which do an excellent job of keeping out the noise from the piazza - when they are... More

This hotel was charming, beautiful, and very romantic. The rooms have a Renaissance feel and are decorated in a way that you feel like you have been transported back in time. The bathroom was also lovely and we had a nice sized bathtub. The location cannot be beat. We had the view of the square from our room which was... More

This hotel was very well located on the main piazza of San Gimignano. The staff were very friendly and helpful, especially Lisa. The rooms were fully equipped and very comfortable. The only small glitch is the walking noise on the roof in the morning (but thank God we were already awake) and the small flight of stairs to take the... More
