This is a great hotel - the location is perfect for touring Tuscany - Chianti and all of the areas near and far. The restaurant is a major plus - means no driving and no parking to worry about and the food and service are excellent. The staff is friendly, accomodating and will go out of their way for you....

We really liked this hotel - I cannot think of any fault at all. The staff were exceptionally helpful and welcoming. The room was very nice. The adjoining restaurant was excellent - informal and friendly but top quality. The location of the hotel is fantastic - you can walk into San Gimignano in half an hour, up a lovely country... More

My husband & I stayed here for 3 nights at the end of June beginning of July. The location is lovely in the mountains with lots of trees - beautiful Italian countryside. The pool is perfect temperature & great to come back to after a day exploring in the hot sun. We ate at the restaurant on 2 nights &... More

overall give it good marks for cleanliness, spaciousness and comfortability - however,if your goal is to stay in a place with some characteristic Tuscan charm - I'd look for something else. this place reminds me of a Tuscan version of a standard US hotel - Hamptons Inn comes to mind. meets all the basic requirements but lacks personality and charm....

The hotel was spotlessly clean - something which, for me, is very important. The grounds are very pretty, landscaped, with two very good outdoor swimming pools. The hotel also has a very good gym, which includes equipment that is actually in good working order! Staff are very friendly and helpful. The overall impression was excellent.

This hotel is very nice and clean all over. The service is OK generally but excellent when Laura works. The breakfast is satisfying except for the coffee (cappuccino and latte) since it is a machine and not done by a barista. When i asked for a real one the lady who served the breakfast (the 29th of april) was not... More

Nice pool, friendly staff, good parking and nice to have a little balcony. Rooms were average, nothing to complain about but nothing special. Bit tired and not much style. Our balcony was nice but no privacy and looked straight onto the main road. We did however see fireflies in the evening which was very cool. 2km walk into twon, not... More

We did not choose this hotel per se - it was part of a package, but we were not disappointed. If is fairly small, located a few minutes drive outside San Gimignano, where you can park outside the town walls. Our floor was clean brown Tuscan tile, shower was a detachable sprayer, towels were huge. Shuttered French doors open onto... More

We spent a week here and it is wonderful. Why do I feel this is the hotel to stay in if you visit San Gimignano? First, if you have gotten this far into the Tuscan countryside, you are most likely in a rental car. This hotel has a very large parking lot that is secure. While the hotels in San... More
