Visiting San Gig. is a regular event in our family. Tripadvisor and my brother's recent stay in winter brought me to this hotel. Out of the 5 times we visited S Gig., this was the first we stayed inside the city. We used to stay at Santa Chiara and had wonderful experience. Four in the family stayed in room 10 and 11. The rooms were small. They were stuffy. The bathrooms were dirty. The toilets were stained. The shower hose had mildew on it. The emergency call string had black stains in its lower part. They were small and had no room for your toiletries. The room had barely any furniture for 2. So plan to stay outside the room when you are not sleeping. I asked for top floor rooms before my arrival as advised by my brother. They said they were not available. They said that I would be given the "quite" rooms facing the patio. It turned out to be the breakfast place in the mornings and the bar in the afternoons and the evenings. We will be sleeping right there. Fortunately the guests when we stayed there had not been noisy. The staff had been nice. They were very helpful in their emails (so were the nice responses to the tripadvisor reviews). The breakfast was quite typical.So, Those who gave great reviews had the better rooms. Beware what room you will get. Our family decides not to be back in this hotel.

Room Tip: Refuse 10 and 11 unless you have a great discount

We thank you for your review about your recent stay with us. We are sincerely sorry to read that the assigned rooms were not of your liking.

From your description on cleanliness and comfort, I think it's a miracle that we still manage to be on the hotel business.
I am also puzzled to see how different is your opinion compared to many other guests who reviewed the same two rooms and showed particular appreciation for their location and comfort.

Furthermore, I would like to remark that despite availability for 2 rooms on the upper floors, we gave priority, as agreed, to your specific request to have close or adjacent rooms.

I especially regret not having being informed of your opinion on the assigned rooms during your stay, so that we could have immediately offered you other rooms of your preference.

Our sincere hope is to once again be able to serve you and meet your every expectations. As a family owned-establishment, we take great pride in doing our utmost to please our Guests

With kindest regards

Emanuele Marro

We did watch the video on how to arrive by car at this hotel. We then decided to park in lot outside walls and take city bus in-so much easier! Trust me!
We stayed in the green triple room, great view, good air conditioning. Plenty of room for the three of us. Wifi worked great! Breakfast was lovely. They also have a very cute outside terrace where five of us played cards when we returned from dinner. Front desk very helpful. Location is perfect for exploring this great little town.

I stayed here with a girlfriend for 4 nights. We had a charming twin bedded room overlooking the courtyard where breakfast is served on fine days. The hotel is only 3 star but , rooms comfortable with sky tv, minibar, hairdryer, bath and shower too. Staff v helpful and friendly. Would definitely stay here again. Wonderful.

My wife and I visited San Gimignano in early May. The hotel is great because of 1) location; 2) staff; 3) services.
Staff was exceptionally nice and helpful in pointing out local attractions etc.

One thing to remember is that it is located in the central street so now and then it may get quite noisy and we recommend not to take any chances and before getting to bed to close the windows and the shutters.

The room was clean and spacy.
