The hotel is in an old palazzo on the Piazza della Cisterna, San Gimignano's liveliest square. You can drive into the old town to offload your luggage before parking in one of the car parks outside the old city (the staff are very helpful with advice and can provide cheaper parking than you'd get from the car park itself). The...

In the heart of this beautiful town is Hotel Leon Bianco located. Specially in the evening, when most of the tourists go home, the main piazza, where the hotel is located is a wonderful place to be. The atmosphere of both the hotel as the town is unique.

Perfect location. Large and clean room with a view overlooking the town square. Good breakfast which is definitely above average. Staff was very friendly and helpful. If you drive to the hotel, you can unload your luggages at the door by going into the old town then park your car to a 15 minute walking distance parking place.

It's all about location. Hotel Leon Bianco is located in the heart of this beautiful walled city on the central square. The drive to the hotel on the narrow streets is not for the faint of heart but you can unload your luggage at the front door. After unloading you are required to park in specified lots outside of the...

We stayed in this lovely hotel while holidaying in Italy last year (NOT 2016, but can't change the year here). It was a challenge to drive through the gate with a huge rented Jeep, in order to unload our luggage. We had a room overlooking the square & worried it would be noisy, but not at all; things quietened down...

We spent 3 nights at Hotel Leon Bianco. It was very challenging to drive up to the door of the hotel, then to return the car to the remote parking lot -- but that's the price you pay for being centrally located. Our room at the back was quiet (as we'd requested) and charming with shuttered windows opening to the...

San Gimignano was one of our favourite destinations on our 17 day trip through Italy. It's full of character and charm. The Hotel Leon Bianco is in the perfect location in the main square.

The first hotel we stayed in in Italy, the beds were comfortable, rooms very adequate, breakfast substantial with friendly staff. Rooms are serviced daily, and the location is excellent. Walking in and around the picturesque town is lovely, and the circular walk around the town (+- 8km) is steep, but worthwhile. A 2 day visit is plenty.
