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

My two daughters and I just got back from a trip to San Gimignano. The staff is very accommodating. I needed help starting my rental car and findind a pharmacy. The restaurant is pricey but wonderful!

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. Our proximity to San Gimignano was handy and allowed us to enjoy the town by... More

The Hotel Sovestro is a family owned hotel, and it is very clean. The rooms are small but quite nice for two people and private bathroom. 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

We recently were guests at the Hotel Sovestro in October. Our room was very pleasant with a private patio with table and chairs. A lovely place to relax and visit after a long day. Our breakfast was very generous with an assortment of meats, cheeses, wonderful hard rolls, fruit, juice, cereal, and pastry that was "to die for." The staff... More

Comfortable room and friendly staff, but the bar was completely without soul, with bare tables & no ambience. We ate our evening meal in the restaurant and the food was very nice, but the dining room was brightly lit with strip lighting, which diminished the atmosphere. Breakfast offered a good choice of cereals, pastries & beverages, served in the pleasantly... More

We were very pleased at this wonderful hotel. It is situated in a quiet location. We took a taxi from the train station which costs EUR 20.00. It was a good idea because the bus stop is on a busy highway. It was very clean and the rooms were really nice and quiet. The beds very comfortable. We had two... More
