Quaint, Clean, and Great Location!Posted Sep 16, 2013 on Hotels.com
The hotel was very clean, the room was nice and it is a very convenient location for exploring San Gimignano. It was little confusing checking in to the hotel. You need to go to a Tabbachi shop a block over and they walk you back. The hotel covers several buildings on the street. We enjoyed our stay!

Just Inside the Wall -- A Quiet Place to RestPosted Apr 24, 2013
Pros: The room was large and the linens crisp.
Cons: The front desk is not always occupied.
Location: Tthe location is super quiet and restful but within steps of "happening things."
It's hard for a couple to travel with one teenage daughter and one 21 year old and stay in the same room. Of course, European rooms are often much much smaller. NOT this stay. We enjoyed a huge room with a bathroom down a flight of stairs within our own room. It even had a jacuzzi tub that was uber clean. Although we had a slight snaffu upon check-in, a local art studio attendee shut down her shop to walk us to the local tobac to call and locate the proprietor. Once we checked in, and found our room overlooking the old town wall, we melted into perfect bliss. The hotel was near a fantastic local tratorria and wonderful morning breakfast spot. Perfect place to explore the town -- even though our car had to remain outside the city walls.

BEAUTIFUL TOWN - WORTH THE TROUBLE TO GOPosted Feb 18, 2012
The town is absolutely beautiful. We were there a day after it had snowed, and the vineyards were amazing. The town is on a hill, so you get an great 360 view of the Tuscan countryside. Getting there was a little crazy. From Florence, take a train to Pongibossi (approximately 10 Euro per person), then take a bus from the Pongibossi train station to San Gimignano (about 3 Euro per person). The train runs more often than the buses from Florence to Pongibossi, so don't waste a day sitting around waiting. Also, don't let anyone help you with your luggage at the train station (there are people who stand around in the train stations looking to con you out of your hard-earned Euros...they demand that you tip them and make a scene...even if you don't ask for the help or don't need it. Don't let them touch your bags. The hotel was nice, but for the town we would have even stayed in a cardboard box on the street. There are a few flights of narrow stairs that you must climb inside the hotel, so be prepared. Also the staff is not always at the site. They run the tobacco shop down the street, but they are easy to find. The entire town is composed of two streets that run the length of the town. My new wife and I explored Rome, Florence, Venice, and San G...San G was the best. We only stayed one night, and we still regret it. Stay at least two. Very relaxing, friendly people, great views. Our best restaurant experience in all of Italy was at Trattoria Chiribiri at the wall entrance.

Un capodanno specialePosted Jan 3, 2012
Pros: il bagno che ha una doccia molto spaziosa e una grande finestra
Cons: la colazione si poteva fare entro le 9.30. Un pò prestino quando si è in vacanza !
Location: San Gimignano non si può raccontare . San Gimignano si deve vedere . INCANTEVOLE !!!
le camere di questo bed and breakfast sono deliziose e confortevoli . Inoltre si trova a pochi passi dal centro . La signora molto cordiale e gentile ci ha dato ottimi suggerimenti su cosa andare a vedere e dove mangiare bene spendendo il giusto. Consiglio vivamente questa stuttura che ha reso la nostra mini vacanza romantica e indimenticabile.
