Stayed for one night in February and really enjoyed the place. The location is wonderful - right on one of the main squares (and across from the famous Dondoli gelato :)). We had a room overlooking the square and our room was spacious, very clean and the beds were very comfortable. The hotel is in the old building but the shower and all the amenities were modern and top-notch. Reception is open only for a few hours every day, but the owner left us keys and a list of wonderful recommendations and tips.

Lovely historic place just keep in mind there is no elevator (there are a few stairs up) and there is no parking in the city center (but the hotel sends you a pass to drive into the town to drop off the luggage).

Stayed in the 3 person room. Very spacious, very comfy bed, great shower room, staff so friendly and great advice on places to visit. Would definitely stay here again . Air conditioning is a little loud but nothing earplugs won't sort. The restaurants are fantastic in San Gimignano and the ice cream in the shop below superb. Try the wine bar next door, you will not be disappointed in the view from downstairs !

I wish I could give a better review of this place, but because of the bed being uncomfortable and the air conditioning noisy and unable to cool the room I just can't.

The good:

Central, right on the main square. You get to enjoy san gimignano after the day trippers have left which is extremely special.

You can drive and drop off your bags before parking or park in P4 (€15/day) and take the elevator up and walk for 15 mins.
P1 is €6 and a bus ride up if you'd rather. (Prices June 2017).

It's hidden a little but look at the cafe on right in the corner with your back to the award winning gelato shop, and it's just left of there.

The building is stunning and the rooms decorated beautifully.
The shower built into to the arch was exceptionally pretty and had the best view I've had from a shower (and a good shower, hot and powerful).

Hair drier and basic soap provided.

Mini fridge in the wardrobe was good too.

The room was a good size and clean.

We had no issue with noise with outside or reception.

Check in was limited with times 3-7pm only and limited staffed hours, which was fine for us but worth knowing.

Staff were lovely, friendly and helpful.

The bad:

The bed was just so uncomfortable.

The air conditioning was extremely noisy which we would have put up with if it had cooled the room but it wasn't powerful enough.

I'm sad that I can't recommend this place unless they replace the mattress and the sort out the air conditioning (in summer months) which is such a shame as it could be very special.

Recently returned to this lovely three room BNB. Just lovely. And the location is just fabulous. We love how quiet and romantic San Gimignano becomes in the evening after the bus crowds leave for the day.

We recently stayed in the four person room in this hotel. It was lovely - very large, and our teen girls each had their own bed. The bathroom was huge and clean too. The hotel is right on the main square but very quiet as the room looked out over the countryside. It was perfect to stay right in the heart of San Gimignano which was so much more peaceful in the evenings and mornings. There is a cafe right below which has breakfast pastries. The staff easily arranged a check in and check out time and were very friendly and helpful.
