Villa San Paolo is an OK hotel with fantastic views of the Tuscan countryside and of San Gimignano. But what was disappointing is that the website implies some kind of contemporary boutique hotel based in a classic old Italian villa, when in reality most of the hotel is a modern block with basic rooms decorated almost 20 years ago.
Despite asking for a rose garden room (from a previous TripAdvisor recommendation), the room was actually very disappointing and the potential view of San Gimignano from the garden was almost entirely obscured by a staff car park gate.
The restaurant had the most spectacular views but the staff were stressed and the waiting times were so long that at one point we just got up and left. When we did eat at the hotel, the food was average at best. Good pool, but otherwise not recommended.
