This hotel has the best location around the area, just a step away to the square and water well, and a minute away to the tower, the duomo etc. I found the receptionist both during check in, a lady and during check out, an old gentleman both are very nice people. The room was

Ideally located in the main square of this Tuscan town which simply oozes history. Rooms are comfortable, plain, compact and well-lit. More than adequate continental breakfast. Staff could not be more helpful, even if you don’t speak Italian. Comfortably priced.

In spite of a central location on the Piazza della Cisterna, unfortunately our room had a courtyard view only & was noisy. The bathroom was oddly shaped & not user friendly. The air conditioning had a musty odor. The breakfast was disappointing compared to other breakfasts we

Dear Luv, we are agree with you, the location of our hotel is great and we are happy that you have enjoyed it. Regarding the room, if you have got a room without panoramic view, is because you have booked it, in fact there is a detailed description on the website where you have reserved your room, probably you have booked an economy room or a standard room without panoramic view, for this reason, we are really disappointed to receive a complaint for an aspect that depends on the customer's choice..... We are sorry if the air conditionning had a musty odor, we will check it like always, even if we suggest to the guests to make staff aware of any inconvenience for receiving the proper assistance, if it is necessary also changing room. The other aspect that we would like to discuss is the chair on the terrace that was dirty: the sky of San Gimignano during the good season are full of birds (swallows, pigeons, sparrows, crows), and sometimes we do not have time to cope with their fast metabolism.... Kind regards from our family and from our staff

The hotel was lovely, however the room was smaller than we expected. The shower was very small, luckily we are small people! Overall it was a good experience. The location was fantastic and the staff were friendly and helpful. If you have a car as we did, you must park outside

Dear Linda, If you are by car, you can drive to the hotel to drop off your luggages, then you have to park the car in one of the pay car parks outside the town's walls (about 5-10 min. walking to the hotel) at 6 or 15 or 20 Euro per day (24 hours). The public shuttle service is available from April to October, every half hour it brings travelers from the parkings to the hotel. The cost of the trip is 1.50 Euro. If you will reserve a room, we will send you an email with all the informations to arrive with the car. Kind regards, Paola

Take the second street on your left and continue straight for about 300 metres until you get the second traffic lights. Drive through the small gate and, turn right after 50 metres and continue straight untill you reach the hotel. You are allowed to park the car in the square for 20 minutes.
