This B&B is in the heart of San Gimignano and makes a great base camp for the rest of Tuscany. It is clean and cozy; staff is friendly and helpful; and the rooms are perfect for families. The price is extremely reasonable. We really enjoyed our stay there and would stay there again. It is easy to miss the entrance... More

This place is a gem. The location is right in the middle of the historic little Town's activities, which at night is very peaceful when the day-trippers leave. The building is beautifully renovated and keeps the historic charm. The room is graciously appointed, even the wine and mini-bar is reasonably priced. There were 4 of us in the room -... More

First the Pros - fantastic position and rooms were nicely done. The cons however were - there was a 'minibar' advertised on the website we used as well as complimentary toiletries, what they translate to is an empty fridge and some hand wash - not a problem unless you arrive after the shops have closed. - the air conditioning unit...

Great view of Tuscany out our room window. Perfect location on Piazza Cisterna. Tastefully updated rooms in keeping with Tuscan feel. It worked out perfectly for a family of 4, kids ages 14 and 11. Just a note, no breakfast was included, but there were multiple cute cafes next door. Recommend is to park outside the city walls and walk... More

First off, as helpful as the website is with helping you figure out where to park and how to get to the hotel, it is actually a little challenging to find the hotel once you're in the square. The sign for the hotel is in a door, not above the door on the outside, which makes it difficult to spot.... More

This hotel is in a building built in the 9th century; it's one of the oldest buildings in San Gimignano. You feel it, with the thick walls and the rough stone walls. But they've done it right, putting the showers behind floor-to-ceiling glass against the exterior walls so you have a view of the city's famous towers while you bathe.... More
