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

A beautiful hotel in a top location. We had a very nice room with lots of space and two chaires. The view from the window was to die for. A big bath with the same view. A big, nice walk-in shower. 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...

We recently spent two wonderful days here and fell in love with San Gimignano. The hotel is located right in the Piazza yet when you close the windows and shutters at night it was perfectly quiet. We were able to drive in, after much difficulty finding the right entry gate, to drop off our luggage. And then advised where best... More

We stopped for two nights, the hotel is in the middle of the town over looking the piazza. We asked for a room overlooking the countryside and the views were wonderfull. You can drive to the hotel to drop off luggage but you have to park outside the walls in the public car parks which vary in price. I did... More

As long as you come expecting a 3 Star Hotel you will be more than satisfied.
