This hotel was real find and a perfect location for us to explore the surrounding area and to really enjoy San Gimignano itself in the evening once all the coach parties and crowds had left for the day. The room we had was large and very comfortable with a good sized bathroom. Both the room and the bathroom also had...

Really lovely hotel, located on the prettiest spare in San Gimignano. Huge, airy room, with a perfect bathroom. We had a stunning view over the Tuscan countryside. The selection at breakfast could have been better, but the quality of what was there was good.

Leon Bianco is located in the very centre of San Gimignano, front desk staff are very helpful, breakfast at the terrace is lovely, but they should start serving earlier than 07.00 for early departures.

This Hotel is slap bang in the middle of the best square in an exquisite town in beautiful Tuscany. The location was perfect and deserving of 5 stars. San Gimignano is a bustling place during the day with fantastic sites and wonderful cafes and shops; by night after all the day trippers have gone it is even better. There was...

For the price paid (E135 per night including breakfast) this was great value. The room was adequate with a separate small lounge and a large but awkward positioned bathroom. Breakfast was satisfactory and the staff helpful. The positon was perfect, right in the heart of the city centre.
