The breakfast was very good. It was bigger than I expected. It was very nice; rooms are very big; modern and clean. The reception desk was open until late at night (even though my booking suggested that we had to show up earlier in the day). Compared to B&Bs, there is probably less personal service at this place.

We visited this area in late September 2015, which is a very nice time to go. Weather is temperate and crowds are not crazy. The hotel is very clean and charming. Our room had a large balcony with a sun awning, which was great. The restaurant served some delicious food, notably the house made ravioli with mushroom and ham sauce.... More

Clean, quiet and well maintained in a good location and with a good dining room. Outside the city, just a short 25 minute walk uphill to San Gimignano. A few things, however, prevented this from being a more positive experience. 1. no laundry service. We had been on the road for several weeks and had planned 4 days to see... More

Air conditioning, swimming pool, modern amenities, clean comfortable room, great breakfast, excellent Internet. There is a wonderful 2 km walk to San Gimignano on a back road, with vineyards to the sides with wonderful constantly changing views of the town. This is a photo taken from the road.

Clean hotel centrally located and minutes from city center. Bed was comfortable and allowed us a good nights sleep. Bathroom was roomy and had all the amenities. Breakfast was average but the view was great. Employees were polite, helpful and spoke English Wifi worked well.
