One night during our honeymoon. Have been to San Gimignano before and love it. This hotel lived up to all expectations and more! We were given instructions to drive to the hotel by e - mail immediately after booking and got good instructions about parking at check-in. Stayed in room 18 overlooking the square. The room is lovely and the... More

I have stayed in the Hotel Leon Bianco for four times in the past ten years. I now look forward to seeing the lovely family, including parents Paolo and Fiorella, who own this hotel. Lisa has also been part of the staff since my first visit and seems part of the family.. My return felt like returning to see warm,... More

stayed in room 32 for 3 nights and loved the room and the location. For a thousand year old building, the room was modern and spacious. The location right in the square is unbeatable and close to restaurants and shops. Also a great location to do day trips to wineries all throughout Tuscany. The breakfast, which was included, was the... More

This was a great location. Friendly staff. Beautiful view of Tuscany. We enjoyed 2 nights. We spent a day in San Gimignano and then the next day went to Siena and drive through the country. It was a great trip. San Gimigiano is a great place. This hotel was very unique and fun.

Very good value for money, and our room was a good size. Hotel staff was helpful and gave us good advice how to get around and what to see. Because we wanted a quiet room, we chose not to have a room on the square. We had room 32 which had a great view of the Tuscan hills. Room came... More

Just finished a one week stay in hotel Leon Bianco. Room 36, an oversized rooms with two views, one of the piazza, and one of the countryside. Pillows hard and flat, as was the mattress. A 2 inch memory foam topper would go a long way. No bell service, but that doesn't bother me, I travel light. Housekeeping was efficient,... More

Arriving at San Gimignano around 6 pm. Finally got into the hotel around 7:40. After searching for the hotel for 45 minutes---getting a ticket for driving on a wrong street, we finally found the hotel. Then we find that parking is back down outside the city wall. We drove down to the parking lot , then walked back up to... More

Mr Craigh, we could answer you with a question to your question...why did you book inside an historical center, with limited traffic if you have problems to drive? You come from USA, road are big, here in Italy is different, many centers of Italy were build in a very far past, and the roads are not like in Arizona....we suppose... More

Everything you need. A very nice breakfast served on a very nice balcony. Only thing was that the pillows... More

I stayed in this hotel for one night recently with my husband. On first impressions, we were satisfied with the room. Although basic, it had all of the amenities you need, and the view was really lovely as it looked out over the piazza. The night we stayed was not particularly hot, and we are not big fans of air...

As this year we haven't had any problem with any air conditionning engine, we suppose that you was not able to manage the remote control.
