We would have welcomed tea and coffee making facilities in the room. There was a fairly good breakfast but cereals, fruit juice and fresh fruit were poor. The pool area was pleasant and the swimming pool was superb. General... More

We had a fantastic time at this hotel. It was immaculately clean and the staff were consistently helpful and attentive. The breakfast provided for all tastes and the swimming pool very well maintained. It was the best place we stayed at, during our 5 weeks of touring Italy. Just a word of warning that the walk in to San Gimignano... More

We stayed at the hotel for 4 nights in July, the hotel room was quite spacious with a patio. The bed was comfortable and generally very quiet. San Gimignano is not really walkable (no footpaths) bit a quick 5 min drive. The hotel has ample of free and secure parking. The Italian restaurant attached to the hotel is very good.... More

So,the dilemma is...do I stay within San Gimignano city walls..or choose a hotel nearby. I did the latter and had no regrets. Hotel Sovestro is in a lovely spot,nestling in a vineyard strewn valley,within a ten minute bus ride,up the hill,to the main gate into the town.The bus stop is at the main entrance to the hotel and they come...

I spent 2 nights. Everything comfortable, well furnished, clean. Close to main road but in peaceful area- you can have real rest. Big car park, luxurious swimming-pool in front, absolutely smashing restaurant with unprecedented choice of great wines. I had the best dinner in my life (so far:) Rather high prices. Plan to come back.
