This hotel is in the main square, (San Gimignano is a world Heritage site, so is busy with tourists from all over the word during the day, but at night it becomes much calmer.) I first had lunch here 35 years ago, and I had always promised a return trip, but this time I stayed at the Hotel, and I...

If you really are looking for a feel and sense of experiencing Tuscany as you expect it, then this is the hotel and city to start in for a quaint and loving entry into their beloved area. The room was amazing and the staff couldn't have been friendlier. Will definitely stay there on our next trip back. All around great.

We had been here once before, but we had not asked for a balcony location overlooking the valley. (The view overlooking the piazza would be useless!) Great views and a nice room. (This is a hill town however, so do not expect a five or four star hotel, although this one comes close to a four star.) It is located...

It is difficult to say exactly how this hotel disappointed us - it's just that the whole place needs a makeover. Our room seemed like it was a dungeon - our dinner was good but the breakfast lacked a lot. In particular there was a fantastic Italian high spec coffee machine lying dormant in the corner (whilst a staff member...

A charming hotel in the famous Piazza Cisterna. Our room had a communal terrace shared with three other rooms but still with privacy and the rural Tuscan countryside view from it was breathtaking. All staff in the hotel are very friendly and helpful. I would love to visit and stay again.
