4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

The hotel is nice and only a short ride to the very pretty and charming San Gimignano. Hotel rooms nice and clean. We had a lovely view. The restaurant is superb and have a michellin star - not even expensive. You should definately try it!

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

A really nice hotel, friendly and helpful staff. Very nice pool area, rooms with patios. Breakfast was ok. That's it. Nothing to complain about really, nothing mind blowing either. I can forgive breakfast, since that's really not their thing but would have expected better coffee. Not entirely certain how the restaurant next to the hotel earned its Guide Michelin rating....

This was a very quaint hotel in Tuscany, the rooms were very good with plenty of space in the bathrooms and sleeping areas. The swimming pool area was great, also plenty of deck to sun or goof around in. The breakfast was very good, you could choose between an average Italian breakfast or your basic fruit, cereal, or pastry. The... More

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.
