“Totally forgettable!”
Reviewed July 9, 2013

We arrived having to find a detour as the main road up was closed. Went into reception, only a man watching tv, we thought a guest, but no he came to the counter, no words of welcome, just "passports" and gave us the key. The same on checkout, no words! We still have no idea if he is the porter, owner, receptionist?

But we were just here for one night and had booked a room with a view. Well the small window was about 4 feet from the ground so on tiptoe I could see out, not what we had envisaged! The room was adequate.

We left before breakfast, wishing we had gone elsewhere.

This was by far the best place I stayed at in Italy during my honeymoon. The location is in a cute town of San Miniato. The rooms are huge. The price was excellent and very cheap under 100 euros. The bathroom was large and clean.
The breakfast was very delicious. Only wish I could've stayed longer.

We stayed here while walking the Via Francigena. It is a beautifully converted old building in the historic town centre which has been a medieval church, an 18c convent for an enclosed order of nuns, a 19 and early 20c prison and in this last reincarnation a lovely hotel. The baroque chapel is their conference room - in England it would be licensed for weddings and would be a spectacular venue but it doesn't work like that in Italy (civil weddings at town halls only). The rooms were lovely, the beds comfortable, the showers excellent. We were only staying one night - I should like to come back again and stay longer. One of the reviewers complained that she wasn't given a dressing gown and slippers but that isn't common in Italy and certainly not in hotels at under €100 a room. At these prices she should have brought her own if they were so essential. Breakfast was good - unfortunately it wasn't warm enough to eat outside in the sunny courtyard.

I was a tag-a-long with my husband on his business trip mid-November 2012, but after researching & finding the truffle festival, we extended our stay to the Hotel San Miniato at the gracious hands of Paul & his kids. We had great, warm service; wonderful food, wine & Paul does make an excellent cappuccino! We had a wonderful experience with the truffle festival & the town of San Miniato is just beautiful. Add the history, friendly people, rich scenery, hills, vineyards, etc., it was a memorable trip for us both. To finish our stay, Paul, himself, took us to the train station, bid us goodbye with the traditional kiss on each cheek & a bottle of wine. We hope to make it back with our teenage daughters & stay with Paul once again.

Paolo and his daughter are incredible. We stayed at Hotel San Miniato at the end of November during the truffle festival. We stayed in the back building and the room was spacious with a great view. The satellite tv was pretty limited on channel selections but that was the only minor complaint. Otherwise the room and property are gorgeous and in great shape. Paolo works 24 hours a day but is always ready and eager to make sure that you're having a great stay. During the fall white truffle festival the hotel hosts a special truffle dinner in their 600 year old chapel. The space alone is worth the price and the food is fantastic. The breakfast buffet has a good selection of meats, cheese, croissants and they'll make you a cappuccino if you ask. Excellent hotel, incredible staff and a gorgeous location. Highly recommended.
