Hotel L'Antico Pozzo
Ranked #3 of 29 Hotels in San Gimignano
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 15 October 2017

My husband and I spent two nights at Hotel L'Antico Pozzo in mid-September and had a lovely stay.

Location: The location of the hotel is excellent. You are in the heart of the city and within walking distance to everything, restaurants, shops, and sites. We were glad to be staying in San Gimignano, as opposed to outside of the city walls. The city swells with visitors during the hours of 10am to 6pm and we loved being able to be see the city at night. It is almost more special in the evening hours, as so many people leave around dinnertime...it's like you have the city to yourself.

Since the hotel is within the city walls, I thought cars weren't allowed, so we rolled our suitcases all the way from Parking lot 4 to the hotel. We are both in our 30's and the temperatures were comfortable, but I certainly wouldn't have wanted to do that if it had been hotter or if we were with our parents who are in their 70's. I realized after the fact that you can drive your car in to the town for the purpose of dropping off and then collecting your luggage when you leave. I would recommend driving in to drop it off, as it is a 20 minute walk otherwise.

Room: Our room was spacious and well appointed. It was a simple room, but it had everything we needed and it was extremely clean. The one thing I am critical of is the bed linens, they were not of high quality, but only being there two nights, it wasn't that big of a deal. Upgrading to some higher quality lines would really elevate the hotel and the experience of staying there. It is an incredibly beautiful hotel and space overall.

Service: The front desk and staff who served breakfast were friendly and helpful. They were available to give directions and make suggestions for things to do.

Breakfast: Delicious! Anything you could want. We loved sitting outside in the little courtyard!

Classy hotel inside City walls, ideal location, beautiful large room, with view of courtyard and Walls, really clean, lovely staff and good breakfast. Thoroughly recommend. Good for couples as rtooms very romantic, and the building is full of tradition but with all mod cons.

We only stayed here one night, so we just booked a double room, this was on the top floor, so it had a good view but the room was extremely small, the shower was small and there was only shampoo toiletry in the room.
The receptionist was extremely helpful, advising us of different places to go to. The hotel is on one of the main streets in the town and you are spoilt for choice for places to eat and drink.
The breakfast was very good, with a large selection.

Room Tip: Top room was very small

We stayed here as a couple for 4 nights. It was a gorgeous spot and the accommodation was lovely and spacious. We were in a Petrarca room.

We had the breakfast buffet included and it was very good.

Depending on how you arrive at San Gimignano I would recommend finding the Hotel first before unloading your luggage - you could be dragging it a long way.

Ask the staff at the front desk for restaurant recommendations. I would also suggest booking as many times we went to places that couldn't fit us in until after 9pm.

Also they are more than happy to provide you with wine glasses and you can sit in the outdoor area with your cheap vino and drink to your hearts content.

One of our favorite places to stay in the Tuscany region. Charming hotel inside of the city walls. Adorable rooms with Tuscan charm yet modern bathrooms. Delicious breakfast and wonderfully friendly and helpful hosts. Very comfortable and feels like home. Great location for a home base as the hotel has easy parking just outside the wall making it easy to drive off for day trips to the surrounding other midevil hilltop towns and then return to San Gimignano for dinner. There are several amazing dinner restaurants in San Gimignano and its a lovely little town at night after all the day visitors have left. We can’t wait to return next year,
