“Ticks all the boxes.”
Reviewed July 31, 2012

My husband and I spent 11 nights at Hotel Sovestro from 14th July. We loved it. Perfect location, lovely rooms, helpful and friendly staff. The adjoining restaurant Da Pode was fabulous also. We hope to come back again sometime. Denise from Ireland.

Perfectly located for visiting the surrounding towns, this hotel is just right for a relaxing break. The rooms are a good size and very clean, we had rooms in the older, one-storey part of the hotel which overlooked the pool and had their own little patio. Breakfast is plentiful, and dinner in the adjoining restaurant a pleasure. The staff were all very friendly and helpful. We shall certainly be visiting again.

I feel I should rate this hotel as 1 and not 5 because if everyone sings it's praises it will be full all of the time and I won't be able to get a room in future! One of the beauties of this hotel is that it isn't too large. There's plenty space to sit by either of the two pools without rubbing shoulders with other guests. The rooms are spacious and each has air conditioning and a balcony or private terrace. It is in a beautiful setting which is well maintained and is well located for travelling around central Tuscany. The hotel is family owned and run and they take great pride in the service and facilities provided to guests. The standard of cleanliness is excellent and the staff always helpful. The restaurant provides a good selection of local cuisine which is always of a high standard and the selection of wines is excellent. Breakfast is superb.

Room Tip: There are no bad rooms in this hotel.

We spent 5 days here on Honeymoon, it was a lovely hotel, the staff were very friendly, the room was comfortable and very clean, and the pools were lovely and refreshing.
It is a good 20 minute walk up the track to San Gimignano, but it was a nice walk with great views and surrounding scenery.
It was a fantastic location to explore the rest of Tuscany from.
I would definitely visit again.

We've been coming back to the Sovestro for years...9? 10? (Twice last year!) and we see a lot of repeat guests. This speaks well for the way the staff makes you feel like this hotel is your home away from home. It's located just outside of San Gimignano (2 KM). We enjoy taking a walk up to the town, around the city walls, and back each morning after breakfast. It's a great, scenic walk. On site is a great Restaurant da Pode. See my restaurant review. Check in is a breeze. If you're a return guest, they simply lead you to your room, as they keep your information on file to speed up check in. The hotel is constantly improving, working on the grounds, the rooms, new TV's, etc. They are not satisfied with having been one of the top hotels in the area. They want to stay up there, and it shows from their courteous service. They always have time for your questions and are genuinely concerned about your comfort. The breakfast buffet is huge, and it is a great way to start your day, breakfasting outside overlooking the rolling Tuscan hills. For those hot summer days, they have a wonderful, large pool; where they know how to keep the temperature of the water just right. It's fun to watch the people come out to the pool after four in the afternoon when the sun isn't so intense and the touring is done, to swim, have a drink, visit, or just laze around. It's wonderfully relaxing. The grounds are manicured aesthetically pleasing, and the hotel sits among olive groves and vineyards. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay again, and we look forward to coming back...hopefully this September!

Room Tip: Pool side rooms are nice. You have a patio looking onto the pool.
