“Impromtu delight...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 21, 2012

On our way from Florence back to Sienna, we drove through this delightful castletown called San Gimignano & loved it so much that we looked for a hotel for the night.

Thankfully we stumbled upon this great hotel just within the entrance & were delighted by the service, wonderful vineyard views from our massive patio & the incredible ambiance of this medieval township.

Half of the price of our hotel in Florence, but twice as good. Make sure you go for a wander, buy deli stuff & spoil yourself at one of the local restaurants!

Hey Friends! The nicest little Hotel I have stayed in Tuscany is here! We were 4 friends from Mexico, We rented a car in Florence and drove thru Tuscany fields! The best of the best!
We plan several overnights in different little medieval towns to taste the gourgeus Wine and Italian Delicatessen.. The parking in San Gimignano is Outside the medieval town. the Parking # 2 (with a charge) it s located 150 meters from the Hotel.. not bad at all..
The Hotel is excellent! The rooms and not really wide but very comfortable and clean.
The breakfast is included and the panoramic terrace is FANTASTIC! The restaurant open also at night, but of course, the views in the morning during breakfast are breathtaking!.. I will come back for sure! The town of san Gimignano is great to stay for three days minimum and be the based to explore the surroundings! The medieval town is lovely especially at night ! all the restaurants I tried were delicious. Do not miss the Ice Cream Shop in the corner of the central "piazza".. they advertised it self as the "best of the World"...delicious! Good luck!

This hotel is just off the main street. It is filled with history. Staff are great and have some English. Room large but a unique shape. Door onto a veranda, shared , looking over Tuscany from a great height to the East. Fantastic view. The restaurant is superb with that same view. Service in here is a class act like a Michelin place. We had 2 dinners both superb quality. Breakfast buffet the best we had in Italy. A good reason to go back to Tuscany

Room Tip: Get one with a balcony at the rear for the view

We didn't have any reservations when we were driving in Tuscany. We wanted to check out the town and then decided we should stay overnight. We stumbled upon this hotel.

It was a great little place with nice staff, big rooms, decent breakfast and a garage nearby to park our rental car. We enjoyed sitting in the sun, sipping our coffee and being mesmerized by the totally awesome view from the breakfast room!!

San Gimignano was very quiet after 7 PM but it was awesome to wake up and explore the village before the huge crowds appeared. It's not the Hilton but I would highly recommend this place to most people.

My husband and I spent 7 nights at this lovely little hotel using it as a base to visit some of the wonderful hilltop towns which are within very access. As all the reviews say, San Gimignano is full of tourists during the day but in the evening is a different story. We chose to stay here as we like to be able to walk rather than drive to a restaurant/bar in the evening and there are some excellent places to eat within a a few minutes walk from the hotel. Our room, number 21 on the top floor, was perfect with 2 sets of doors on to a tiny balcony where we sat every evening before and after dinner.The view is simply beautiful!!! The room has both AC or ceiling fan, small sofa plus table and chairs which was really useful. Bathroom was fine but a bit dark. I would have liked a mirror in the bedroom. The hotel does have nearby reserved underground parking at 15euros/day but we parked at the lower car park, P1 for 6euros which is only about a 10min uphill walk. Good for walking off the Tuscan food!!!
The staff are very helpful and friendly, free internet access is available, breakfast is perfectly adequate though rather unimaginative after 7 days of exactly the same. Do ask for fresh cappuccino or espresso as the regular coffee supplied is a bit grim though they will charge you for a second cup! We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here and highly recommend it.

We have visited this town many times before and it has always been on our list to stay over. So we did. The hotel is inside the city walls so you do have to park in the car parks outside but this is not really a problem. You can stay quite close and pay 20 Euros or , being thrifty, we stayed further away and paid 6 Euros for 24 hours. Downside, yes, you do have to lug the luggage 400 yards and in 38 degrees plus you notice it but you pays your money and takes your choice. Staff warm and friendly and even are happy with slow Italian (well, you do have to practise). We had a 2 room suite. Bathroom quite large with bath and shower. Shower good. All clean and lots of what I call "traditional" Italian towels. The suite was spartan but more than adequate for our needs. I would have liked a mirror in the main bedroom to make drying hair easier but you can easily use the bathroom.or other room. The room was quiet. It had air conditioning which was needed. There are also fans. The view was WONDERFUL and I would stay again for this. The restaurant where we had breakfast was in a spacious area with wonderful views. (Downside, and it seems churlish to say but if the sun is shining this makes certain tables near the vast windows very warm. Not an issue for us as we sat further back). Selection of food was fine. I liked the selection of fruit. Staff helpful and not intrusive. I would stay again but would probably choose somewhere else just to contrast!

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a view!
