This hotel is in the heart of the town and our room had a wonderful view of the main square. We could not have wished for a better location. It was very easy to locate and use the public car parks. The room was very comfortable and quiet at night. Breakfast was OK - but not memorable. We stayed for...

The staff were ok. We asked for a restaurant recommendation but after walking there we discovered they were closed. The location was fabulous. We loved the town. I wish I had taken a picture of the room however. It felt like a monastery. Twin beds, very plain bedspreads, no art on the walls. It did not compare to the other...

Neat, clean accommodation. Problems with wifi in rooms upstairs. Wifi only accessible downstairs on ground level. Breakfast was substantial and typically Italian but also catering for "westerners" . No parking in city.

The hotel is perfectly positioned right on the piazza and has that special ambience of a boutique hotel. To walk back into the hotel at the end of the day was like walking into home with the decor and sitting areas on all floors creating that warm feeling. We stayed in one of the large rooms overlooking the piazza that...

A nice hotel in the heart charming San Gimignano. Friendly staff, nice rooms and good breakfast. To bikers it is just perfect, because you can bring the bike into the hotel. From the hotel it is a short way to all the sights of interest.

The hotel is in an old palazzo on the Piazza della Cisterna, San Gimignano's liveliest square. You can drive into the old town to offload your luggage before parking in one of the car parks outside the old city (the staff are very helpful with advice and can provide cheaper parking than you'd get from the car park itself).

In the heart of this beautiful town is Hotel Leon Bianco located. Specially in the evening, when most of the tourists go home, the main piazza, where the hotel is located is a wonderful place to be. The atmosphere of both the hotel as the town is unique.
