BUT, tonights meal was the worst food I ever had. The roasted pork with balsamic & honey was bad....really bad. And yes, I finished my plate as I had very little... More

I say surprisingly as we were not originally booked into this hotel. Our original hotel "lost" our reservation and we had hours to find a new hotel before the flight out to Italy. Call it fate but but it actually worked out better. The only drawback was that the Semifonte did not have a family or connecting room available for... More

We traveled with two teenage (14 and 16) boys in Tuscany for ten days. We stayed at six different hotels and at Semifonte for three nights. We were more than pleased. The staff is incredible! They have a pleasant and subtle way to make you feel almost at home. Their warmth and hospitality is very rare in todays hotel business.... More

Spent three nights here a few days ago. Was astonished at how great the service was from the minute we walked through the door. We wished that more hotels would be as welcoming and friendly during our trip but if you check my other reviews, this is not the case. Rooms were spacious and clean with a minibar. Only bad... More

Have just spent two nights at this hotel during a tour around Tuscany. The hotel is modern and sited on the outskirts of Poggibonsi. Some have commented about its location being near an industrial estate but it is quiet at night and very handy for road access to the main tourist areas. If you don't want to eat in the... More

This hotel is comfortable enough, very small bathroom, tight shower. The major problem I have with this place is that it is so far from anything that it is not a good idea for people who think they will be close to any town. It is in the middle of nowhere.
