We stayed one night en route from Pisa to Montepulciano. We chose the hotel based on the favorable TripAdvisor reviews. The location is simply fantastic and our room was spacious and clean with a beautiful view to the Piazza del Cisterna. Staff was friendly. The only negative I would mention is the breakfast. Both the coffee and juice was below...

We had a room overlooking Piazza Del Cisterna. I leaned out of the window and photographed rein-actors. Our friend's room overlooked a garden. Our bathroom was beautifully tiled. We discovered the beer and sparkling wine from the bar fridge was VERY reasonably prices and we brought them to the 5 person hot tub so soak our muscles on our final...

Myself and my partner stayed in this hotel in recent weeks as we were attending the nearby wedding of friends. As we were going to a wedding I decided that I would go for a good value hotel since I knew we wouldn't be spending long in the hotel itself. When we arrived I was amazed to see how lovely...

We had a lovely room overlooking the main square, good size, all proper amenities. Plus the window was triple glazed, so absolutely no noise from outside!. Breakfast perfectly OK, we didn't use the restaurant for dinner. Excellent value all round.

Getting to Hotel Leon Bianco by car is a little tricky, GPS doesn't work so I recommend walking to the hotel, get the map and have them mark the route and then go back and get your car to bring your luggage. Here is one time it pays to go for the deluxe room with a view-amazing view of the...

We had 3 rooms here for are overnight stay in San Gimignano. If your car is small enough, you can drive up to the front to drop off your luggage before finding one of the lots to leave cars in. I have to say that Hotel Leon Bianco is one of the nicest & most reasonably priced hotels that I...

There are a lot of hotels in San Gimignano but what first time visitors don't realise is that they are not easily reachable if you don't have a vehicle! This hotel is in the best possible location if you are going to explore the town on foot (and who wouldn't be!); the hotel itself was clean, the staff extremely helpful...

We stayed for 2 nights at Hotel Leon Blanco and thoroughly enjoyed our stay there. San Gimignano is a gorgeous hillside town with amazing views all around. It's so much nicer to be there in the evenings when the hordes of tour groups are gone. The hotel is located in the centre of town in the Piazza della Cisterna. We...

Of the five hotels I stayed in whilst touring the Tuscany region I have to say I consider the Leon Bianco to be the best. The hotel is situated in the very centre of San Gimignano and the only drawback is the up-hill climb to the hotel with luggage, there is a bus that takes you to the square from...

Well-situated hotel in San Gimignano which is at the main place "Piazza della Cisterna". Very convenient to see the very nice medievan village which is a "must see" in Tuscany. Very quiet, very good quality and very reasonable in terms of price.
