The hotel was lovely and staff very pleasant and welcoming. Dedicated parking was available, first come first serve, near the street for free, which was great! Location was good - a little far from town, but still walking distance. Location was very quiet, tranquil country setting. Pool looked beautiful and inviting. Lovely breakfast room overlooking garden and pool.
Room was tiniest and most expensive of the 9 European hotels we stayed at. The bathroom was the most compact I have ever seen. I didn't even attempt to shower. The terrace was bigger than the room and bathroom combined, but was too windy and chilly to use it. I recommend this hotel because it was the easiest way to access the town and avoid the parking issues. Also, the hotel was very nice and the room was fine - just small.
The view from the bedroom window was spectacular. The location near town was most ideal.
Everything was great
Helpful staff. Clean. Lovely view, nice garden and pool. Walking distance to San Gimignano.
Just a very short walk into historical center so you can come and go as you please. Upgraded to best room and it was excellent with a great view. Breakfast good enough to satisfy most. Attentive staff.
Had to upgrade to receive decent view.
The hotel was perfect for a holiday in Tuscany. It was very peaceful and had beautiful views across the Tuscan hills. I would recommend this hotel 100%, the standard size bedroom was large with a great bathroom and great views. We stayed in Italy for 14 nights, 5 of which at this hotel and it was by far our favourite. We loved San Gimignano also, it has such character and history. The hotel is just a short walk from the city walls.
Originally I has booked a "small" room. The room was as stated tiny but had been advertised as having a large balcony. When I went out on this 'large balcony',the view was non existant and was facing other similar small rooms and we could not see any of Tuscany at all. This made the combination of the small room and the balcony very claustraphobic. We were advised that we could upgrade to a standard room at an additional 40 euro per night. We decided to do this and received a remarkably better room with a fabulous view. So if you are going, I would recommend this room type without a doubt.
Location and parking.
Location, friendliness of staff, cleanliness
Vey small bedrooms
Wonderful view - very pleasant surroundings within the grounds - convenient location
Dogs barking continuously - not the hotels fault. Air con not working (too early in the year I imagine) so not fully adaptable to unseasonable weather.
Helpfulness of lady on desk who arranged excursions
