Fully agree with recent reviews by Markhoni and Jean B. The hotel is a short 20 min walk via a back road to San Gimingnano. Restaurant Pode which is attached to the hotel served excellent food, we ate there twice and the service and presentation of the food was exemplary. Owners were very helpful in providing everything we wanted. The... More

Stayed here 3 nights. Excellent welcome and very helpful staff at reception. It's more like a 4 star. Spotless spacious rooms. A lovely walk to San Gimignano via back road in daylight. About 20 mins gentle uphill with great views of the towers. Good breakfast and meal in the Restaurant la Pode. Recommend it for a stay in the sea... More

Thank you Hotel Sovestro for another wonderful stay. The pool is immaculately clean and a pleasure to swim in. The small pool is also good for cooling off when the bigger pool is more full in the afternoons; it's great to have two venues for relaxation. The breakfasts are a joy with a wide choice of fruit, meat, pastries, bread... More

We stayed 14 nights at the Hotel Sovestro, and we would have liked to stay longer. Every year when we come back, we are greeted by the same friendly hotel staff. It's amazing that we've seen the same people at the hotel for the 18 years we've been returning here! It's like coming home! Every year we note some improvements.... More

• This is a “happy hotel”, run by a family group where all the staff are friendly and helpful. • The location is superb, only 20 minutes walk via the vineyards, too the old walled town of San Gimignano. The hotel also runs a shuttle service by road which eliminates the need to endure the overcrowded parking around the town.... More
