Having read previous Trip Advisor reviews we knew that we had chosen well. We recognised Luigi immediately! The hotel is modern, clean and very comfortable. It is by no means plush but where it lacks it squishy sofas it more than makes up for in welcoming and accommodating staff. The hotel is located just outside San Gimignano, an easy drive to Sienna or Florence or over the mountain from Voltaire. We spent many hours travelling the Italian countryside but we were always glad to walk through the reception doors to a chorus of 'buonasera'.
