If you take the Leon Bianco on its own, it's very good. The staff are friendly and accomodating. The breakfast is lovely. The rooms are clean and comfortable. But it's the location that makes this so wonderful. Right on the central square in San Gimignano, there is nothing more romantic than looking out of the window in the morning or...

We stayed here for 2 nights during a 16 day trip (touring and visiting family)with my husband and two children. I loved it! Perfect location, roomy especially for Italy's standards. Great breakfasts. Great wine bar across the street. The views out our window were lovely.

San Gimignano is my favorite town in Tuscany. It is beautiful and relaxing. The hotel is in a lovely courtyard near cafes and shops. I've taken friends and family to stay at Hotel Leon Bianco while I lived in Italy.

Just spent two days at HLB and it was great. Given the great location, the room prices were fantastic. In addition, the rooms were clean(albeit a bit outdated) and the staff was courteous. I can't comment on breakfast but the cafe attached to the hotel makes a mean cappuccino.

Dear Jants, thank you for your nice review, we are agree with you, the location of our hotel is fantastic, just in the centre of the medieval town, in front of an ancient well where in old time people took water to drink....maybe it's for this reason that we have style rooms (more than outdated), we aim to create an...

First of all, ask for either countryside or Piazza della Cisterna view because you can end up with a humble view on hotel's inner courtyard. Hotel's position is really awesome, right on Piazza della Cisterna in center of historic San Gimignano. You can reach hotel with a car, just follow the signs, leave the luggage and then return to one...

Dear Ecdurant thank you very much for you positive review and for your good opinion about our staff! As you say, all rooms have their positives, those with view are very pretty, but many rooms with the windows face on the inner courtyard are romantic and cozy too. Regarding our suggestion, we can recommend good restaurant primarily because many guests,...

A beautifully presented hotel in the absolute centre of the UNESCO protected Tuscan hilltop town of San Gimignano.
