Reviewed 18 September 2012

We were absolutely delighted that we booked this hotel. It was in the best location, right in the main square so we could walk to everything. The only problem with San Gimignano is having to use public car parking on the outskirts of the town - quite expensive. Having said that, we did not need a car of course, so...

This hotel is right where you need it to be. A couple of minutes walk from all shops and restaurants. When we arrived we had a view of the square. We asked if we could change and without any fuss were given an apartment overlooking the valley. The staff were very helpful. The breakfast very good. This is a great...

We were pleasantly surprised with this hotel! The room was soooo cool, with beautiful shuttered layered windows that opened right onto the piazza so we could people watch from the comfort of our room! Ambiance, service, cleanliness, and breakfast were excellent. Our only complaint was that the bathroom had a funny smell (probably just the ancient plumbing beneath the newly...

Dear Mrs Abby, thank you for your beautiful review and your positive feedback! The attitude you had is the better to enjoy San Gimignano: relaxing yourself and observing the people outside our beautiful square, it's funny! Regarding wi.fi, we are working to solve the connection problems that sometimes occur.... Thanks again, and we hope to can welcome you in the...

This hotel is beautiful; lovely rooms, great location, and a very nice breakfast. When things go well I can imagine giving this hotel an excellent review. When things break down - as they did in my case - I have to lower my impressions. I'm actually loathe to offer a negative review being a merchant myself and having received unearned...

Dear Sir, as you are a merchant, you could share with me the opinion that working in contact with people can give many satisfactions, but sometimes also some problems. It 's definitely true that without trouble it's easier to work First, despite the low score of the review, thanks for the compliments to our hotel! Both the times you came...

The hotel is located in the center of San Gimignano. You can drive to the square to load and unload baggage but have to park outside the city walls (the walk back to the center is not long though). The rooms are nice but the walls between them are thin and you can hear your neighbours through the bathroom. The...

When visiting San Gimignano, I'd highly recommend staying the night. This town is beautiful after dark and not as busy without all the daytime tourists. If you do stay, Hotel Leon Bianco is the place to be. Located right in the center of Piazza del Cisterna. The rooms are spacious and clean. Our room had a fantastic view of the...

Right in the centre of things - simple 3* hotel but with good service. Our room was large, didn't have a particularly good view, but it was the space I wanted. You can request views of the town or the countryside. As it is in an historic building the layout is quite complex, but it adds to the interest! Pleasant...

We really loved this hotel and have already recommended it to friends. The location was excellent on one of the main piazza and within ten minutes walk of anywhere in the centro storico. Service was really excellent, front desk staff were incredibly helpful with directions, recommendations, even a little box of electrical adapters for those of us who forgot ours!...

When you drive into San Gimignano, try to park in parking #4. Then with your luggage you climb up the stairs and follow the signs into the center of town. We found this better than driving into the ZTL zone, dropping off our luggage and than walking back. Just one trip was enough. Keep in mind that we are light...
