Walk to San Gimignano. Bus stop to Sienna and Florence at the front door. Friendly and helpful staff. Very clean and wonderful value. The breakfast was included and put out earlier than advertised for the early bird travelers.

This hotel is located just outside of the old medieval town San Gimignano. It is a 20 min walk town if you take a back road behind the hotel or a five minute drive. You will also find a special view of the city on the back road. We found it a bit difficult to find upon arrival. It is... More

We stayed here two nights to explore San Gimignano and surrounding areas. The hotel was great value for money. Good comfortable room and bathroom, good breakfast (though nothing exceptional), professional staff, clean rooms, good beds. San Gimignano can be reached in a 20 minutes walk on a back road just outside of the hotel. The hotel provides good parking and... More

With Tripadvisor's help, I selected Hotel Sovestro near San Gimignano for a two night stay in early October 2015. I will start off by saying that I would return to this hotel in a heartbeat! The location, less than a mile from San Gimignano, was outstanding and provided our little group of travelers with a strategically located base for our... More

The breakfast was very good. It was bigger than I expected. It was very nice; rooms are very big; modern and clean. The reception desk was open until late at night (even though my booking suggested that we had to show up earlier in the day). Compared to B&Bs, there is probably less personal service at this place.

We visited this area in late September 2015, which is a very nice time to go. Weather is temperate and crowds are not crazy. The hotel is very clean and charming. Our room had a large balcony with a sun awning, which was great. The restaurant served some delicious food, notably the house made ravioli with mushroom and ham sauce.... More

Clean, quiet and well maintained in a good location and with a good dining room. Outside the city, just a short 25 minute walk uphill to San Gimignano. A few things, however, prevented this from being a more positive experience. 1. no laundry service. We had been on the road for several weeks and had planned 4 days to see... More

Clean hotel centrally located and minutes from city center. Bed was comfortable and allowed us a good nights sleep. Bathroom was roomy and had all the amenities. Breakfast was average but the view was great. Employees were polite, helpful and spoke English Wifi worked well.
