The best thing about staying within the walls of San Gimignano is that when the sun starts to fall and the tour buses depart, you can enjoy this wonderful location even more.
This hotel is not cheap, but we had a fair sized room overlooking the square. There are 2 sets of shutters which enable you to block out light and most sound if you require.
Breakfast was good.

We used the Hotel Leon as our "base" while touring Tuscany for 3 days. Excellent value, room was beautiful with windows that opened to the piazza. The staff was very friendly and helpful, and the breakfast that was included every day was excellent. Wifi was "iffy" in room, but worked in the lobby. I will go back next trip.

Room Tip: Do not get a room facing the piazza if you're a light sleeper. A busy place in the early mornin...

Dear Sara,

thank you very much for your lovely review, the localization of our hotel is very important because San Gimignano is in the center of Toscany, and Hotel Leon bianco is in the hearth of the town, so we are very lucky to can work in this amazing location. We send you our best regards and we hope to can see you again here

The location could not be better, right on the main square. The hotel staff were helpful and friendly. We only stayed for one night - we had a nice big room and bathroom. Good breakfast. We didn't use the jacuzzi - didn't look very nice.

We stayed here for just one night and if you're looking for somewhere in the heart of the medieval town then this is the hotel for you! We paid a bit extra to book a room with a view and it was beautiful, overlooking the Tuscan countryside. The room itself was basic but clean and good shutters keep out the light for lazy mornings. Unfortunately we didn't get such a lie in as hoped as by 7.30am we were woken up by very loud housekeeping staff talking outside our room and banging doors which went on all morning! This was very annoying to say the least. Also at checkout the man serving us didn't speak much English (which is not a crime, I cannot speak Italian!) but we paid and then he moved on, there was no thank you, no how was your stay, no hope to see you again, which is surely the basics of good manners and hospitality. This left us leaving the hotel slightly stunned. Apart from that, it's a great location to soak up the atmosphere of this beautiful town, we'll just stay somewhere else next time.

Dear Mrs Michelle,

thank you for spending your time publishing your review and we are glad that you liked many aspects of our hotel. We are sorry for the inconvenience of the noise in the morning, but we do not believe they were the maids, who are informed that they must be silent and they begin their work at 8:30 and not at 7:30, neverthless we are sorry that you couldn't find quiet. Regarding the man at the reception, he apologies with you if you find him detached. We hope to can see you again in the future,

kind regards from all the staff

My husband and I stayed for only one night, but we sure hope to return. Hotel is located at Piazza de la Cisterna, the city's main square, with pleny restaurants, shops and, above all, great places for gelatto! Room was fair and so was the breakfast, but that was expected given the way the entire city preserves its medieval atmosphere. Wifi connection was very goo though, and so was the computer in the lobby.

Friendly, helpful staff, nice breakfast. The wifi a bit temperamental, we would restart the router in our bedroom which did the trick (turn it off and on again). Car can be driven to the square to drop off bags, an exciting moment squeezing through the medieval archway in the car!

Dear Vicky,

thank you very much for your kind words and positive comments, we are also very happy that you enjoyed trying to squeezing through the little arch with the car, but I have to inform you that who scratchs the car wins a discount to the hotel......I'm joking of course!

We hope to see you soon to San Gimignano,

many greetings from all the staff
