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.

We stayed seven nights here this summer. Quintessential Tuscan town, lovely hotel in great central location. Terrific room, nice breakfast, great service! Great place to use as a base and explore Tuscany. Can be crowded during the day, but evenings and early mornings are magical! Parking outside of the city walls a bit of a hassle but easy to get...

We visited Florence a few years back and power toured through Tuscany one of the days. We of course wanted to see more of Tuscany and decided to split up our 6-night visit with 3 nights inside San Gimignano. After making the reservations we had two American “Tuscan experts” tell us not to stay in San Gimignano and only stay... More

This could so easily have been a 5 star review, they just skimped on a couple of small things. The welcome was warm and friendly and the rooms large and comfortable (we had the comfort rooms).

Super little hotel right in the heart of the town. Great value for money too but no scrimping on quality or service. Very helpful staff both during the booking process and whilst we were there. Would definitely stay here again on a future visit.

The staff was very helpful in all regards. The room was nice and clean with a wonderful view. Everything seemed fresh and full of life. Walking to breakfast in the morning we walked by explosions of bougainvillea. What a gorgeous place. Only issue is that the drive through the town toI the hotel can be intimidating. There are some very,... More

Locations don't come much better. To spend a night or two in this magical town is a true privilege and to wake up overlooking the towers and the Tuscan scenery will give you great long term memories. This classy hotel gives you all of that and is well worth seeking out. If you're driving to the hotel you'll have to... More
