The first hotel we stayed in in Italy, the beds were comfortable, rooms very adequate, breakfast substantial with friendly staff. Rooms are serviced daily, and the location is excellent. Walking in and around the picturesque town is lovely, and the circular walk around the town (+- 8km) is steep, but worthwhile. A 2 day visit is plenty.

This hotel is wonderful. It is in amazing location in the main square offering wonderful views of the square and town. When you enter San Gimignano walk up the hill to the square and it will be in front of you. The staff was very friendly and my husband and I both enjoyed the breakfast each morning. Our room was...

Good location, great actually. Good breakfast. Rooms a bit old, but does the trick if you're looking for a place to stay *in* San Gimignano. Rooms on the 2nd floor are all accessible only with stairs so no strollers can be there. We haven't tested the whirlpool tub but it sure seemed nice (and the water were warm, I checked).

This is a lovely friendly hotel right on the main square at the top of the hill that San Gimignano clings to. We could see three of the 14 ancient towers from our window. It looked down on the 14th century well. There are great restaurants all around and the award winning gelato shop. The room was nice and clean....

Don't judge a book by it's cover. The interesting entrance may throw you off. But once you get you and your luggage up stairs you will be happy with the modern feel and quality. Hotel staff is uber friendly and helpful. Great location. Just wish we had more time to stay another night!

Charming hotel in the heart of San Gimignano with best views - either on Piazza della Cisterna or on the Tuscan hills - it's up to you to choose:) Very friendly and supportive staff ready to help at any time.
