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.

For the price paid (E135 per night including breakfast) this was great value. The room was adequate with a separate small lounge and a large but awkward positioned bathroom. Breakfast was satisfactory and the staff helpful. The positon was perfect, right in the heart of the city centre.
