Stayed here for one night in the winter. There weren't a lot of open places, and we were lucky that we walked up to this place just when the proprietor was walking up. There was a definite language barrier, but we were able to communicate well enough, and were provided with a nice sized room. The room felt like you were staying in a guest room at somebody's home, both in good ways or bad ways. By that I mean that the room is decorated like a guest room, not a hotel room. It had a large, though only somewhat comfortable bed. The bathroom was only somewhat clean looking, but had a surprisingly comfortable shower. There aren't modern amenities like internet, though I think there may have been an old TV. There was a balcony of some sort attached to the room, but since it was winter and dark, we didn't use it.
The breakfast part of the bed and breakfast was fairly week. It mostly consisted of shrink wrapped pastries. Unfortunately the woman serving the breakfast spoke even less English than the first woman we'd met, so we weren't able to talk to her, which would have been nice.
Perhaps the best thing about the b&b is it's location in the heart of San Gimignano. In fact, that makes the whole experience much more charming. When you're in the middle of a old town, staying in an authentic b&b run by older women seems much more charming than if you were doing the same thing in a large city.
