We were recommended to stay in this unique hotel by friends. I say unique because it is split over different levels on different floors which makes navigating the hallways an interesting experience. I suspect it has been created by blending 2 ancient buildings to create the one hotel. We had a small balcony off our room with lovely large french...

This Hotel is our favorite almost anywhere. Some are fancier and some have more stuff- but the value and view can't be beat. Spend the money for the view of the valley- it is spectacular. It is so cool to go out front and be in the piazza filled with activity. Then you go to the room in the back...

First of all, I like to encourage people to stay overnight in San Gimignano. It is just a peaceful and magical place after most tourists leave. This is our second time in San G. First time, we came with a tour and left after 2-hr visit. Despite that many people commented that it is a very touristy place, we had...

I stayed for 2 nights as part of a trip to Tuscany. Helpful staff, quiet room and the most amazing view for breakfast. Definitely recommend staying here- also great to experience the town once the crowds had left. Car parking can be tricky try and get there ahead of day trippers/later in the day. You can drive to the hotel...

The Hotel location is in the enchanting medieval town center. We had a room with a nice view on the ancient towers and the countryside. We had a pleasant staying in this place, but the parking lot was too far away (not covered by Hotel fee).
