We stayed at Hotel Leon Bianco 2 nights in September/2011. The hotel is fantastic, we stayed in a big room for 4 persons. Unfortunatelly the room was't in front of the "piazza" but it also had a great view! The room was spacious and clean and the bathroom was big and had a bath tube. The staff was very kind...

I love San Gimignano and this hotel was the right choice for me. You walk out their door and you're in the main square. I loved throwing open my shutters in the morning to a spectacular view of the countryside. The owner knew little English but there was always someone there to help us (keep in mind that we're going...

The Leon Bianco Hotel has the advantage of being right in the center of the beautiful walled city. I recommend room 15 which has very large windows that overlook the old town well. It's a gathering place for everone and you can spend hours just people watching. Our room had beautiful antique funiture with clawed feet and 2 foot charibs...

We stayed in a standard room for 2 nights in October 2011. The room was spacious, clean and quiet with the reception extremely courteous and helpful and all times. Byy far the best part of our stay was the central location of the hotel, and being able to enjoy San Gimi before the 10:00 tourists arrive. We would certainly stay...

We stayed 4 nights in September and had a wonderful stay. We had a superior room overlooking the beautiful Piazza which was very spacious, extremely comfortable with a modern well appointed ensuite.

Location, in centre of this beautiful Tuscan town, is great. However, rooms are inconsistent in size, quality and view and staff attitude is surprisingly surly. Don't bother with breakfast - you can get much better (with a smile) in the various cafes less than a few minutes walk away.

Sir, we regret that your stay at the Hotel Leon Bianco was not pleasant. Regarding your protest, we reply that you have booked a room at the lowest price, and it is clear that the cheapest rooms have no view (it is also written on the Web site), however you had a room with a partial views of the countryside,...

The hotel is ideally located in the centre of San Gimignano (driving directly to the hotel proved to be an entertaining experience, as cars aren't really allowed or expected in the centre) and the room was spacious and comfortable. We received a very friendly welcome from the owners and a superb breakfast too. Considering the price this hotel represents great...

We stayed 4 nights here in August and found the hotel more that adequate. The staff were very friendly and helpful although there were some questions they could not answer but you can't expect them to know everything.

We spent two nights at Hotel Leon in San Gimignano in late June. The hotel was beautiful, comfortable, very clean, with a friendly staff, and a beautiful breakfast patio.
