“Review Spring 2012”
Reviewed May 15, 2012

We stayed for one week at these apartments. Initial impression was good but on closer inspection things were looking a little tired. The shower door was broken and the toilet didn't flush right. There were also silverfish insects in the kitchen.
Parking was an issue, you are only allowed to drop off/pick up at the premises and local parking is very expensive and can be a long walk in the heat.
If you really need to stay in the town consider these but if not there must be better nearby.
The bottle of wine given to us by the owner was fantastic, one of the best wines ever tasted.

Room Tip: Book a room away from the busy road.

I was really chuffed when I got here, after paying MORE for a very budgety place in Siena earlier in my trip... but this place was spacious and lofty, and the large bathroom (and rest of apartment) was totally clean... not sure what the other people are on about. The only complaint that I have is that there was no kettle in the kitchen (as an American expat living in Britain, I have a sensibility grounded in convenience and hot beverages) And there were no hot pads in the kitchen. I have a feeling that people don't actually cook there very often. Oh, and there was a beautiful Persian cat hanging around the courtyard, who we managed to entice into hanging out with us for awhile. (Don't worry, cat-haters, he seemed to dwell outdoors) San Gimignano is so tiny, that pretty much EVERY place is a "good location," I would think. I would definitely stay here again if I returned to San Gim.

We stayed for 4 nights. Apartment was clean and well equipped. Newly renovated bathroom which was more than adequate. The location in the walls of the city was excellent - restaurants etc easily accessible. The staff especially Mariela couldn't have been more helpful and friendly.

Just had 3 days here and the apartments were extremely spacious, comfortable and clean. Some reviews have said they need updating but they are perfectly adequate and the building itself is in a fantastic position within the outside walls of this fantastic medieaval city.

Just returned from a week in San G. We hired 2 apartments in Fattoria Guicciardini. Very large and well equiped. Yes they are a little old but you are staying in the walls of San G !!... perfect base to see the Tuscan countryside with Siena, Florence, Chianti hills etc all less than an hour away. Make sure you do a cooking class and long lunch with Mr. Fulvio (from Il Vicario - 0039 - 338-7335641). Our family loved it ....

The rooms were very big, but a bit dirty. The Location was very good, but the showers were awful. There were two bathrooms, one shower was cold, and the other was no more than a trickle. Overall we were a bit disappointed.

We stayed in one of these appartments for one night. They are quite large but the place was a bit dirty. The bathroom wasn't great, a handheld shower in the bath spurted water everywhere and soaked the bathroom. The view from the longe was lovely, looking over the Tuscan countryside. OK for one night but wouldnt want to stay for any longer.
