We booked this hotel through the web site booking.com. The details given on this website were completely wrong and booking.com were no help whatsoever when we asked for help. We chose it because it said 'parking on site' and my husband is awaiting a knee operation and has difficulty walking. Firstly we were asked to contact the owner Maurizio when... More

Pros: - Good location in the centre of the (admittedly very small) city of San Gimigliano. - Very warm welcome over the phone by the owner. - The room was spacious and had a good temperature during this time of the year. Cons: - Dirty: The shower cubicle was small with yellow limescales in the corners. The toilet bowl had... More

This tiny hotel had a great location across from the Duomo. It was so clean inside and outside. It is away from the two big tourist streets but in the middle of town. There maybe only 10 rooms. GREAT!!!!!!!!!!! Location.

The owner of the hotel is very friendly and ready to answer any questions you may have. However I am not sure that enough is being done to provide guests with basic comforts. The owner did warn us about a 'few-stall-market' being held in the square on Thursday morning, but did not mention that the noise would be so terrible... More

A la Casa Dei Potenti is located at the center of San Gimignano which is also at the top of the hill town. Therefore, it requires an enjoyable uphill walk from the bus stop to the top of town. It might be a little challenge if you have big suitcases. Study the map and the hotel is not difficult to... More

Yes the bells were there every morning but what a treat. Get directions as it is in a no drive zone but are allowed to bring the car to unload. Paul and Steve are excellent host and it was a special experience for both my wife and I. The owner Maurizio was extremely helpful and overall this was a class... More

Loved staying right in the heart of things. Got up early (around 8 am) and had the entire town to ourselves for half an hour or so. Nice room, friendly welcome, interesting room (like a loft with a slanted roof) with a small view of the square. Plumbing made noise all night, however (Blu room).

My husband and I had a disappointing stay. As a hotel, we really felt that the reception should be open for more than 4 hours per day. On the first day, when we left to have dinner, we said to the receptionist (owner's wife) that our aircon wasn't working (room 8). She said she'd fix it while we were out.... More

This hotel is perfectly located for easy visits through out the day and evening. It was well furnished and certainly very well located. Our room was on the second floor overlooking roof tops and the side street but you could see parts of the Piazza Delle Erbe if you poked your head out the window. Quiet location, great bed ,... More
