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

When I go back to Italy, I will stay at Hotel Sovestro. The staff is friendly, helpful, and approachable. The accommodations are clean and comfortable. The restaurant was fabulous, the ravioli and bruschetta was unforgettably delicious. The location is central to the entire country for day trips.

My wife and I just returned from a delightful week at the Hotel Sovestro. Is it a five-star hotel? No. But the warmth, comfort and welcome we received certainly qualify as such. The Sovestro is family owned and operated, and it shows in the attention and care evident throughout the property. Rooms are smallish but very comfortable and scrupulously clean.... More

Another last minute booking whilst driving through italy. The rooms were quaint, roomy and clean with a large bathroom. Our French doors opened to a garden area and thanks to security type shutters we were able to enjoy the cool night air while we slept.

There is a restaurant that is part of the hotel and the food and service excellent. The Hotel sits at the base of San Gimignano and is two minutes drive from there. If you... More
