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

Located right in the hear of this wonderful town, good bed, the bathroom is a little small, but the view is outstanding , either you see the hills of Tuscany, or the fountain square. Near good restaurants and the world's best ice cream is just no more than 20 steps from the hotel

The ideal location for spending the night in this beautiful medieval city. The rooms are all different, with a lot of atmosphere. The bathrooms are well equipped and surprisingly spacious. All have a private bath which is not standard in Italy. The staff is friendly. I was a bit worried getting my family of 7 and all the luggage there,... More

Nice rooms, very clean, poor internet, but with a superb location right I the middle of the town. The breakfast was extremely poor, with minimum choices.... Friendly staff, all around the clock. There is a problem driving to the hotel, as it forbidden to enter by car in the Center of the city.
