Stayed at this hotel for 4 nights. We used it as a base for exploring Tuscany.
As a Base: the hotel is conveniently located between Florence and Siena. That means within an hour drive you are in these 2 major cities. It also means you can explore small villages within a 30 min drive.
Hotel room and grounds: The general feel is that this is a 2-3 star hotel. The rooms are very basic. However, the swimming pool with a fantastic view kind of makes up of the lack of modern amenities in the rooms. The hotel staff are also very welcoming and friendly. We didn't try the breakfast but I would presume it would be basic. The hotel has a parking and is only a 10min walk to the center of San Gimignano.
As a choice: if you use this hotel as a base and accept the fact that the room would be basic I think is an excellent deal. San Gimignano is a fantastic place to head to after a long day wondering around in Tuscany with many restaurants and bars. It is actually much better in the evening when all the tourists have left.
I would highly recommend this hotel as a base for exploring Tuscany. If you are looking for a hotel to stay and spend more than a week or so in San Gimignano I would look elsewhere.More
