In a good location, yet quiet. View from the window was fantastic. Room was clean. Parking is some way from the hotel, but this is going to apply to most of the hotels in San Gimignano given how pedestrianised it is. Hotel also had complementary wifi and the staff were only too keen to help show is highlights of the...

Lovely place, in an excellent location. We particularly appreciated staff and breakfast. As it's in the inner city centre it's not possible to park nearby, so we left our car at parking P1 Giubileo, at the very convenient rate of 6€ per day, with a shuttle bus taking you to the centre in 2 minutes. Everything was more than perfect!

Lovely big room at front of pensione. Francesco, the owner was very obliging and made me feel at home. Lovely facilities and she made a nice breakfast for me I had in my room (small breakfast room and it was full up). Great wifi.

I stayed at Palazzo Al Torrione during Festa Delle Messi 18-20/June 2016 I wouldn't qualify Palazzo Al Torrione a B&B but a very good hotel standards, its historic building inside the city walls so more central impossible, rooms are perfectly clean new bathrooms spacious showers and all amenities you find in any 4* hotel, buildings are newly restored and have...

Palazzo al Torrione and Palazzo al Torrione 2 are actually the same place. A small and friendly B&B, near the surrounding wall of San Gimignano's old city. The owner is extremely friendly. The breakfast is served in her little kitchen, just like in a traditional Tuscan home. You MUST ask for the tomato bruschetta. Some of the rooms face the...

I stayed here two years ago and knew I'd be returning this time so booked ahead (last time it was last minute). They were very accommodating and helpful. It's a little tricky meeting up with them because they run a tabbacheria nearby and you have to coordinate meeting with someone from there to get into the hotel. Depends on who...

Given that San Gimignano is the most popular and quaint Tuscan city, this guesthouse is definitely the most value-for-money option you will have! Situated inside San Gimignano walls and close to San Giovanni, the main road of the city, Palazzo Torrione has nice, comfortable, clean and well-decorated rooms. The check-in might be a little tricky, as the owner works in...

We arrived in SG last Nov 12, spending 2 nights in SG. The owner had her son to pick us up at the front gate. We were 3 ladies that had some 6 luggage and we actually expected the son to help us with the heavier one- guess what?- he just took the smallest roller bag and had us lagged...
