We went there in June 2014 and were very satisfied with our stay in this hotel. The location is just perfect (right in the market place next the famous well). The rooms were very good and the staff friendly. Though right in the center of the town it still was quite during the night. Highly recommended.

We (3 couples) have visited San Gimignano 3 times over last 4 years and have always stayed at Hotel Leon Bianco. The staff are great, rooms are very good and location is fantastic. The breakfast is not 5 star but better than other hotels in Italy. It is an old village, so limited access to driving in the village and... More

Spent New Year 2015 in San Gimignano and then enjoyed a friends wedding in the town hall. Just magical. What a wonderful historic location. Hotel Leon Bianco was right in the middle of San Gimignano and where all the action is happening. The room was big and clean with views over Piazza. Thick glass on the windows shuts out all... More

Very nice hotel in the historical town. Just we coldnt reach the hotel by car. We had to bring all things from the nearest parking lot. But it was ok. I like the location on the historical center. I recomend this hotel.

A delightful hotel on the main plaza of the beautiful Tuscan village of San Gimignano! Excellent accomodations, great breakfast, friendly staff, and beautifully appointed setting! A great place to stay if you want to visit Tuscany! Full of charm and character. Very nice room and setting! A short drive to Florence, Pisa and Siena!

We were on a small group tour and stayed at Hotel Leon Bianco for two nights. The accommodations were wonderful and we enjoyed the included breakfasts. San Gimignano becomes very busy with all the daily tour groups but staying in the center of town afforded quiet mornings and evenings. We appreciated the chance to stay here and experience this part... More

Provide very detail information for parking when you book it. Really good location and service. Breakfast is very testy too. Although the building of hotel is a stone made and looks like old, but room and bathroom is quite clean and comfortable.

We have visited San Gimignano several times and have always stayed at Hotel Leon Bianco. San Gimi has become quite crowded during the day, even in September, so staying in this hilltop village is a better way to get a sense of place. Early mornings and evenings are quiet as most of the tourists leave. This is also the best... More

this was our first stop on our honeymoon. We wanted something right in the square and we certainly got it. Getting there was by far the most entertaining portion of the trip. You are allowed to drive right up to the door of the hotel, and they are the tiniest of streets. Their directions are perfect, follow them and you... More
