We stayed in Room 58 for one night, the most incredible view of Tuscany you can imagine, & witha double balcony! Lovely room too with bath in the ensuite. Excellent location in the heart of the town. The breakfast room also has panoramic views. Very reasonably priced, we will definitely return!

This hotel is located just in the heart of the lovely town of San Giminiano breathtaking location with a view on Piazza Cisterna. The hotel show anyway it's age and from my humble point view a renovation or refurbish is necessary

We stayed 2 nights early June in the Cisterna, and we found no quieter place than this one to enjoy a San Gimignano without tourists! During the day, the city streets are packed with hords of tourists following their guide, whereas beyond 7pm, the city belongs to its inhabitants... The hotel property was perfectly located, right in the middle of...

The views and the location of this hotel cannot be faulted. It is an old building, however, and the noise did travel between the rooms/corridors. The shower was small and struggled with water drainage, the WiFi was hit & miss, and the breakfast was ordinary. Having said all that it was excellent value for money. After all it is a...

Excellent location. We had a large room, with the most wonderful views overlooking the hills of Tuscany. Staff at the front desk were very helpful in sorting out a problem we had with the bikes that were supposed to be waiting for us. Wifi was free (good) but coverage poor. We had dinner at the hotel restaurant, it was ok...

Centrally located, this hotel is comfortable, with spacious bathrooms. The restaurant is excellent, and offers beautiful panoramas. One of the dining rooms is from the 14th century. Most rooms have beautiful views. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

This was the most amazing hotel in an idyllic location in the beautiful town of San Gimignano. Our room, 85, was in a row of four which had the most fantastic balcony overlooking the rooftops of the town. Each room had its own table and chairs, a wonderful spot to relax after a day's sightseeing with a glass of wine....

Positives: Excellent location on the main square. Large room (No. 88) with clean bathroom. Quiet. Great views of the Tuscan countryside from our room, the restaurant and the breakfast room. Negatives: Breakfast choice is limited; there is a charge for WiFi; staff spraying tables with disinfectant at breakfast time was overpowering.

This is our favourite hotel and town in Italy. The hotel is charming, the staff are wonderful and caring, the rooms are very comfortable, in character, and the views are to die for. Every evening you can watch the birds circling and then settling down in little niches within the walls and the buildings at night. The birds also gently...

Perfectly located in the centre of the town and the restaurant has both fabulous views and excellent food. Upper floors get the views as well. Room quite small and simple but perfectly adequate and staff very helpful. Nice bathroom goodies.
