A few days in Poggibonsi
Posted Jun 16, 2014
A few days in Poggibonsi is enough, we were here for a friend's wedding and Alcide hotel is perfect for the price. You need a car as there isn't anything to do in PB, we couldn't even find a restaurant in the town! Out and about though is wonderful, we had dinner one night at Monteriggioni and another night at Vico Furbo in Vico D'Elsa. Its also only twenty minutes to drive to San Gimignano which is where we spent the second half of our trip, where one of the hotels in the main square was just a extra €30 per night.
The room is large enough, there are two bathrooms one with basin and bathtub the other with basin and toilet so that makes morning logistics for a married couple slightly easier. The hotel wifi works well, once you can figure out how to get connected. The free bottled water in the fridge was good. The TV is too small and without any international channels. The aircon is a little slow and ineffective and we couldn't figure out how to override the automatic operation. The breakfast was very average.
Overall we would recommend the Alcide for a few nights.
