We stayed in the Semifonte for five nights as a base for exploring Tuscany. From the hotel you are central to Siena, Florence and San Gimignano. The hotel room and bathroom are spacious, well appointed and very clean. The air conditioning was a little warm for my taste, but was very quiet. WIFI is free, but the signal was so... More

We stayed at this hotel for 2 nights. We were a family of 4. Rooms is tight for 4 and sofa beds are used. The hotel is in a industrial area with good access to many sites but do not expect nice views around the hotel, which is a pity considering you are in a beautiful area of Tuscany. Breakfast... More

Just about to check out... This place tries sooooo hard for their guest's satisfaction. Excellent breakfast buffet with delicious cappuccino if you kindly ask the efficient staff. Bravo tutti at Semifonte. At this price impossible to beat !

The hotel was very good. The breakfast included everything, the rooms were clean, the pool was clean and quite and the staff very friendly! Opposite to the hotel is a large supermarket but if you want to visit for example San gimignano or another place you need a car cause the hotel is not in the center of a town... More

I stayed for two nights whilst on business in the area. It is an industrial area but was quite. All the staff were very friendly and the food, dinner and breakfast, was very good. If I return to the area I would stay again

The location is both easy to find and quite good for visiting many of the Chianti producers. They did not receive (or notice) my request for a bath tub (online reservation), but they found one for us once I asked in person. Noticeable failure: There was some promotion that included a glass of local wine to participants. The wine was... More

The hotel is located in the heart of Chianti region in Tuscany, so if you are by car and you are visiting the region, it is a good place to stop. The rooms are clean, large enough, the breakfast is plenty and the staff is there if you need them. It is advisable to have a GPS if you don't... More

Rooms were a little bit small for 2adults and 2 Teens, but it was manageable, considering the perfect location between Pisa, Siena and Florence. Staff was more than helpful with directions, train tickets, winery tours and more. The minibar didnt work, but reception offered to replace it right away. Nice room, clean, good standard, air conditioning worked […] perfectly. Dog... More

I stayed here one night in May, but only for the location. It's a nice place, but has faults. The desk staff are really weak - rare in Tuscany. Wrong room (wanted smoking), wrong info about shopping in this very urban area, and wrong directions to local sites. When I finally settled in for the night, the TV just didn't... More

My husband and I stayed the at Hotel Semifonte for 10 nights recently. We were delighted by the welcome we received and impressed at how clean and inviting it was. We were shown to the bar first for a cold, fresh beer by Daniele who was extemely helpful and answered all our questions about Italy. The room was clean and... More
