This is, indeed, a hotel in a perfect location in the square. The breakfasts are good and the staff pleasant BUT the only soap in the bathroom was from a wall-mounted dispenser by the hand basin, so no soap in the shower. No tissues either - seemed very odd for a hotel of that quality. The bar next door served... More

Lovely hotel located on the main square of San Gimignano. Perfect spot for walks. Good breakfast, and service, my only issue was a very hard bed. Beautiful building, good size to my room at least and a good sized bathroom.

I picked this hotel because of it 's wonderful location and because it has a small gym for my husband-a rarity for small town hotels. But this combined with everything else made for a perfect stay. We asked for a nice quite room with a view and we were given one in the back overlooking the country side. Comfortable, clean,... More

Dear Ann, thank you for your beautiful review, we are happy that you have enjoyed you time to the hotel Leon Bianco, and also thank you very much for suggesting parking number 1 to the other trippers, many people reject it thinking that it is too far, but as you said are only 12 minutes walking and it is cheap.......

Leon Bianco is a quaint little hotel on the main city piazza, bang in the middle of the old town- the hotel has ideal location for stay .

We have been many times at the Leon Bianco, and every time we leave happy for the choice. Located in the heart of San Gimignano, overlooking the main piazza with outdoor cafes and ice cream shops. Restaurants just around the corner. Extremely clean, spacious rooms. Professional management. A bargain overall.

We've been enjoying San Gimignano for over 30 years and believe that it's ESSENTIAL to stay within the city walls...We recently stayed at the Leon Bianco (we alternate between it, the Cisterna, and the Bel Soggiorno) during the January holiday season, and we were not disappointed in any of the hotel features. Our room was very reasonably priced, heated well,... More

The rooms were good size, clean, and very nice. Breakfast was included and was a good addition. The location cannot be beat and the staff was courteous and helpful. If you are driving, follow the hotel's directions, it's much easier that it sounds.

San Gimignano is a special place to visit. Generally, you've heard about it and you go out of your way to visit it. Getting the best of this hilltop medieval town, you absolutely want to stay in the CENTRE of it and there's no better centre that on the main square. That's the location of Hotel Leon Bianco.

We stayed there for three nights and used this as a base to explore Tuscany. This lovely hotel is situated in the central square of this beautiful walled city that is enjoyed best in the evening when you can truly appreciate it's unique beauty.
