How often do you have the chance to stay in a beautiful, ancient palace in the heart of one of Tuscany's most beautiful towns, with views of the countryside, great food, and wonderful service? There's little more else to say. Just book it. From the moment we arrived, the staff were incredibly helpful and polite. But then we were shown...

Leon Bianco is a beautiful little hotel right on the main piazza in San Gimignano! It is immaculately clean, has beautiful lobby, hallways, breakfast terrace, etc. Everything was more than we were expecting! It is a wonderful hotel to stay in and relax after the "day-trippers" leave the town in the afternoon!

If you need a hotel in San Gimignano look no further than Leon Bianco. Reasonable rates, spacious rooms, charming family run business. Absolutely spotless and well designed. Although right on the main square there is no noise due to the double window design. Great location in the middle of town. As in all of San Gimignano, the car had to...

This town is special, and so is this accomodation! Definitely ask for a room with a view. Great room, breakfast and helpful staff. The kind of place one does not hesitate to recommend/come back to. Very touristy town..so one /2 night stay fine.

We were absolutely delighted that we booked this hotel. It was in the best location, right in the main square so we could walk to everything. The only problem with San Gimignano is having to use public car parking on the outskirts of the town - quite expensive. Having said that, we did not need a car of course, so...
