This is a charming, family owned and run hotel, just outside of San Gimignano. The owner, Elio, believes in the importance of hospitality to weary travelers, not just for the sake of business, but because our happiness also gives him satisfaction. We awoke to his graciousness each morning (3 mornings which we extended to 4) as we enjoyed a hearty breakfast of homemade cakes, focaccia, salamis, cheese, freshly sliced fruit, coffee, yogurt...
The room in the thousand year old tower was spacious. The bathroom was a decent size with an excellent shower. Both were very clean. Elio's restaurant suggestions were also very good. The hotel is well situated for leisurely exploring the area between Florence and Siena. I'd recommend this hotel if you're planning to stay for several days. It is not directly off a main highway if you want something quickly accessible, but it is a short drive to the main thoroughfare. It's also about an hour's drive from Florence airport.
