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!
