This hotel is in the main square of San Gimignano surrounded by lots of restaurants and shops. We had a view over the Tuscan hills which were stunning. The room itself is a little tired but it's spacious, clean and well equipped. The staff are very helpful and the breakfast is adequate.

Stayed at the Leon Bianco Hotel in July. The location was perfect, it provided us with views over the Piazza della Cisterna and the Tuscany hills - perfect! The hotel is smack in the centre of the City & room was spacious with good A/C, and a comfortable bed (a must for a good sleep). The staff very very friendly,... More

A gem in Sam Gimignano. We were a group of 8 and reserved three rooms. They were very kind to upgrade me to an apartment which was huge with one drawing room, two bedrooms, a changing room and a toilet. The windows of the rooms opened into the beautiful valley. All of us enjoyed our stay and would definitely go... More

Classic rustic tuscan hotel with amazing views across the rolling hills of Tuscany (room to the rear). Rooms to the front of the hotel overlook one of the main squares in town and the hills beyond. Comfortable enough and decent value. They could offer more selection at breakfast but plenty of decent restaurants within 50m of the front door. Friendly... More

Dear Adam, thank you for your positive feedback, we are happy that you have appreciated our hotel and the beautiful views from our windows, valley and square. Neverthless in our opinion our breakfast cannot be compared to a meal of a restauant beacause even if it's plenty it is still a breakfast not a lunch or a dinner... Thank you... More

Great service, right in the center. Nice spacious rooms, great air conditioning, and a fantastic breakfast - prosciutto, cheese, salami, pastries, hot options, fruit, plus way more. The only challenge is it's tough to get to, you have to go through a quite complicated maze of narrow San Gimigiano streets to get to it to drop your luggage off. Pay... More

We have returned from our trip to Europe over a month ago, but the kids and I still talk about Hotel Leon Bianco! It was simply amazing to stay at this beautiful hotel, smack in the middle of San Gimignano. The front desk personnel was outstanding. Especially Lisa, who was kind and helpful in any way possible.

Very nice hotel. Clean, spacey rooms. Right on the central plaza. Even though it is in the most busy place in San Gimigniano it is very quiet. The staff is polite and helpful. The breakfast is good with a lot of variety and it has a patio with a limited view. The only negative that I found is that their... More

We got a room facing the main square which we thought was going to be loud when all the tourists arrived but to our surprise the triple window makes the room really quiet. The terrace where breakfast is served is really nice.

If you are staying in San Gimignano for a few days you should well consider staying at this hotel. We are here right now, resting from the midday heat, and it is delightful. We requested a countryside view, which was honored, and have not been disappointed. The room is quite clean, spacious and the housekeepers attentive. Breakfast is the best... More
