Very good value for money. The BEST location in San Gimignano by far clean comfortable rooms with great views. Only the breakfast needs attending to. The front desk staff were more than helpful and very friendly

Had a lovely room with amazing view of Tuscan hills from quaint shuttered windows. Bed comfy and linens great (why someone said something negative about bedding I don't understand). The breakfast was wonderful and the service too. We loved Lisa! She was incredibly helpful and kind throughout our stay. The location is ideal and we will definitely stay here again... More

We spent 4 nights on our return visit to San Gimignano, after noticing that the location of the hotel was particularly good for getting around the town. Prior to arrival we contacted the hotel to arrange a taxi to pick us up from Florence airport, and they were very helpful in doing this for us. We booked a comfort room... More

Stayed here in late March and loved it! Right on the fantastic square. Getting to the front door a bit of a challenge but ok. Room overlooking the square was lovely. Clean, quiet, all necessary amenities. Not luxurious, just nice. Best location you could imagine- everything a few steps away. Breakfast was very well done. Staff was very friendly and... More

Dear Sir, thank you very much for your lovely review...I didn't know Rick Steves, so I went to search....I agree with him for few ideas, 20 years ago in San Gimignano we could breathe a more genuine and original athmosphere, but hey this city is a pearl and tourism is inevitable ....and as you said there are also many shops...

My granddaughter age 15 and I stayed at this hotel in July. It is a medium size hotel with a lovely atrium type lobby. Our room was on the third floor with a view of the courtyard, not unpleasant. Our room was quite large as was the bath, which is unusual for Europe. Our room was cleaned and well stocked... More

I thoroughly recommend this hotel. Lovely staff and fantastic location, right on the piazza. Stroll to great restaurants and shopping. Our room was comfortable and quiet. Opening the windows to look at amazing views over the countryside. Breakfast was similar to other hotels and we ate on the charming terrace.When we booked we were provided with a map of the... More

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
