Good location, great actually. Good breakfast. Rooms a bit old, but does the trick if you're looking for a place to stay *in* San Gimignano. Rooms on the 2nd floor are all accessible only with stairs so no strollers can be there. We haven't tested the whirlpool tub but it sure seemed nice (and the water were warm, I checked).

This is a lovely friendly hotel right on the main square at the top of the hill that San Gimignano clings to. We could see three of the 14 ancient towers from our window. It looked down on the 14th century well. There are great restaurants all around and the award winning gelato shop. The room was nice and clean.... More

Don't judge a book by it's cover. The interesting entrance may throw you off. But once you get you and your luggage up stairs you will be happy with the modern feel and quality. Hotel staff is uber friendly and helpful. Great location. Just wish we had more time to stay another night!

Charming hotel in the heart of San Gimignano with best views - either on Piazza della Cisterna or on the Tuscan hills - it's up to you to choose:) Very friendly and supportive staff ready to help at any time. Clean and comfortable rooms, breakfasts on the sunny terrace. I never wanted to leave this hotel!

We stayed here for two nights and thoroughly enjoyed it. Our room was large and airy with a marvellous view of the tuscan hills. Stepping outside the front door of the hotel and you enter the main piazza where there are restaurants and shops, and in the adjacent square the city museum and the "Duomo". Parking is outside the city... More

This hotel was wonderful! My boyfriend and I stayed this summer. Perfectly centrally located and our room overlooked the beautiful Piazza Cisterna. As for accommodations, wonderful terrace breakfast, fully functional AC and large bathrooms. If you have a chance, go on the sponsored wine tour through the hotel; you will not regret it. Overall wonderful stay.

Really lovely hotel, located on the prettiest spare in San Gimignano. Huge, airy room, with a perfect bathroom. We had a stunning view over the Tuscan countryside. The selection at breakfast could have been better, but the quality of what was there was good.
