Village is busy during the day with day visitors, but a good base for day trips, quiet in the evenings and the views from the village across the country side are beautiful. Hotel is in a good position.Meal at the hotel was excellent, breakfast good and in a room with magnificant view. Would recommend to upgrading to a superior room with a balcony for the same view.

One of receptionists who was on the night shift while assisting guests from another room was speaking at very loud voice, slamming doors and making incredible noise with the chairs which woke us up at midnight. When politely asking her to keep the voice down she was very rude, shifting the blame to my that I am not patient enough.

The staff at the front desk was primarily a woman. I can't remember her name now (Julia?) who was absolutely lovely and so helpful. The location of this hotel is absolutely perfect for visiting the medieval village of San Gimignano. You are just inside the wall so its easy to pull up to the entrance take your luggage the few doors down inside the village walls that are pedestrian only, drop your luggage in the lobby, ask for directions to the "cheap" 6 Euro a day parking lot (we just left our car there for 3 days and stayed inside the village for all visiting & dining so all 3 days was 6 Euro). We absolutely fell in love with San Gimignano. Even though the basic rooms can be small, we switched to superior the second night which was a comfortable 2 room size and had an amazing view outside the walls to the Tuscan countryside with roaming sheep just out the window then the beautiful rolling hills, olive groves, cypress trees and sheer beauty for miles and miles! The only complaint was the terrible water pressure in the tub/shower. It was not a show stopper though because the hotels location absolutely makes everything worthwhile!

Located near the southern entrace, the Belsoggiorno is very easy to get to. (After unloading luggage, park in lot 1 and save $$- the walk isn't that bad.) The photographs overstated the brightness and quality of the room we were given, but the view over Tuscany was great. We were in a room with two rooms for 4 people but only one room was airconditioned. For the second room to be cooled down, the airconditioned room had to be freezing. The hotel staff were VERY helpful. This was one of the most expensive places we stayed so, the price/value didn't seem as good as in other places we visited. The dining room served a great breakfast --big windows facing east. The restaurant is reputed to be one of the best in San Gimignano---- it was very good, but....one of the best?

Really an excellent place to stay. The best breakfast buffet around but please remember it is not included in the price of the room. I would gladly return again. Go to the tourist information center regarding any detailed questions on the city or visiting neighboring villages as it is more accurate and reliable than that of the hotel staff.

I arrived early, but very hot as I'd staggered across town from the only car park with spaces. The receptionist barely smiled and said 'your room is not ready'. She did not say 'oh but have a seat' or anything remotely welcoming. After 5 minutes in the hot reception (no air-con) I went across to the bakery opposite for water and a coffee. When I returned she must have realised she'd been abrupt as she carried my bag up to the room. The room appeared basic, but clean, and I thought this isn't great for 100 Euros, however it had a terrace with stunning views, so that made up for the drab interior. I have to say the other staff on reception and at breakfast were pleasant and the restaurant has fantastic views and the food is excellent.

The staff were very welcoming and competent and spoke excellent English, though they let me speak a little Italian as well. The room we had was spacious,quiet, comfortable and clean and had a terrific view of the surrounding countryside. The A/C worked well in 35 deg. celcius daytime temperatures. San Gimingnano is a beautiful city, with the added joy of staying there before and after the day trippers arrive/leave. Wonderful views from the top of the La Torre Grande and fantastic, though little known, frescoes in the duomo and the church of San Agostino. THE BEST ICE CREAM IN THE WORLD IN PIAZZA DELLA CISTERNA in the centre of the town. WORTH THE VISIT JUST FOR THAT! Try the local white wine, Vernaccia (only from here), especially the Riserva. Plenty of little lanes and places to walk around, good restaurants, particularly Le Vecchie Mura.

The room was lovely and large, the view of the countryside fantastic, and the food at the restaurant excellent. It was the hotel we most enjoyed throughout our stay in Italy (we visited Milano, Bologna, Siena, San Gimignano, Firenze, Orvieto and Roma. I highly recommend this hotel.

Lovely hotel situated next to Porta San Giovanni. The bus from Poggibonsi stopped just outside the wall , so only a 2 minute walk to the hotel. The view from the spacious balcony was beautiful, breathtaking, we could have stayed on the balocny for the whole 2 days. very good air conditioning as well as a large ceiling fan.Small fridge in room. comfortable bed with a good sized bathroom.There is a lift. The breakfast was good with a range of cereals, yoghurt,meats, cheese. ask for a freshly made espresso - great way to start the day. Staff were friendly and helpful, use of internet/ printer helpful when planning next stage of journey.We will definitely stay here if we return to San Gimignano.

This hotel was just as described. We were lucky to have a room with a shared balcony with unbelievable views. Only downside was that most guests passed our room so did have some noise on one night as happy guests returning from night out. I would definitely reccommend this hotel and location. The restaurant was good for breakfast again with amazing views, evening meals were expensive although very good quality.

We initially selected this hotel from Frommer's guide for Florence and Tuscany despite the fact that the guide book criticized the Belsoggiorno for its "lack of charm, too soft beds and cheap functional furniture". The bed was comfortable. Functional funiture is unimportant compared to the absolutely unparalled view of the Tuscan landscape from the terrace. There was plenty of hot water, the linen towels were luxurious, the breakfast offerings better than we experienced anywhere else and the reception staff were pleasant, friendly and helpful. The hotel itself is only a two minute walk from the bus stop. It was quiet and clean. Large room, lights on both sides of the bed, functional and quiet air condtioning, elevator service available, close to everything worth seeing. The only item I would suggest as missing from the room is a no-slip mat for the bathtub.

Fantastic views from balcony of room 321, and from Dining Room too. Great location for exploring the whole town. Enjoyed many walks of the town and overlooks of the valleys surrounding. Guests cannot park near the hotel and must park in municipal lots. We had to walk at least a km. to get back up to the hotel. Front desk was friendly, but of no real help for parking. Extremely busy town and nearby roads. Save yourself the trouble of waiting for a parking spot in municipal area P2, the closest parking at 20 euro/day and go to P1 - further, but far less busy and 6 euros per day.

Nice hotel and well located, once we found it. We were able to park our car in a nearby carpark for 6 euro per day, which is located about 5 mins walk uphill to the hotel. We requested and received a large room with shared balcony offering spectacular views over the valley. Air-conditioning and ceiling fan were both available, but we ended up using a/c only because the fan was too noisy and felt like it would fall from the ceiling. After a restless night from being bitten by mosquitoes, we awoke to the peaceful view again which restored our good impression of the hotel. The breakfast room had equally spectacular views and had a good selection of foods, including fresh fruit. San Gimignano was the first stop on our 5 day honeymoon and all of the following towns we visited could not compare to the beauty of San Gimignano. Highly recommend this place!

A very well located hotel, inside the walls less than 100 metres from the southern Porta San Giovanni. The hotel stands by the pedestrian street of San Giovanni, but our room faced the other side of the hotel, the Tuscan landscape. Traffic noise from normal cars (down from the valley) was non-existent. When accessed by car there is a parking space (P2) just outside the Porta San Giovanni, but it´s often full. Another much bigger parking (P1) is a little further down the hill, generally has a lot of vacancies. Seven minutes brisk walk uphill, or take a bus with the baggage every 20 minutes (note: only until late afternoon), or drop off the baggage at the port (if you are not alone), or simply drag it uphill, it´s a ggod exercise... The hotel itself and it´s location: Fabulous.

This hotel is close to one of the gates and was easy to find. It was fairly basic but clean and spacious with a large shared balcony which was lovely. The restaurant for breakfast was quiet (so maybe better to not bring your children) and the food was good.

The ladies who ran the desk were friendly and accomodating. The room I received was a little small. When I reserved the room in March, I asked for a room with a countryside view, but none were available, which was disappointing. However, this is an excellent hotel, with easy access from the parking and bus stops. I recommend it to anyone wanting to stay in San Gimignano. Instead of making it just a day trip, stay overnight and enjoy the town without the bus crowds.

Delightful stay - kindness and attention of staff outstanding. 4th visit to San Gimignano (our 50th Wedding Anniversary trip)and we enjoyed everything about it. The hotel and the general relaxed atmosphere was exactly as we had hoped. Perhaps the only improvement (for people arriving by train) would be to provide 'phone number of taxi prepared to come to station in a reasonable time. Bus is OK, but not good for first time visitors. The views from the dining room are wonderful. We were also delighted that our room had a balcony and the same lovely views.

If you want a hotel in San Gimignano, I would recommend you stay here, if only for the view from the breakfast room, it is truly stunning and a marvelous way to start the day, the food provided is varied and plentiful also. Some of the hotels rooms have a similar view too. Our room, although facing the street and not the Tuscan countryside, was clean, modern and comfortable. It was reasonably roomy and good value at 120 Euros per night in an expensive town. The hotel is the first that one comes across as one enters the town through the Porta San Giovanni. As San Gimignano is a small place, it is easy to walk to all attractions; the presence of a few hills should mean that you earn your gelati or dinner from any of the excellent restaurants and trattoria around. Finally, the aforementioned breakfast room doubles up as a restaurant in the evenings. It serves some excellent food and is well worth booking a table. Try to time it so that you see the sun go down – it should make for a memorable dinner.

Belsoggiorno is great IF you want to stay inside the walls of the city. Noise is high because you're right over the main street. Quality is as advertised. As you come into San Gimignano, park in Parking Lot #2. You see P#1 and P#2 in blue sign. P#2 is written in small black and white sign. Come into circle in front of city. When you get to turn where you have to go right or left -- Go straight. That's #2. Walk in on main street, hotel on right about 75 yards in.

We stayed in a suite on the top floor of this hotel. The room had a balcony the length of the whole top floor overlooking rolling Tuscan hills for miles. The only sound we could hear on waking was loud birdsong and crickets clicking. A wonderful stay. Food in hotel restaurant at dinner excellent (breakfast a little uninspiring with not much choice). San Gimignano is a staple on the tourist trail. It is only when you stay there at night that you can really appreciate (and move around freely) in the place. Highly recommended!

San Gimignano is unique and beautiful. This hotel is one of the few inside the walls. The hotel is very nice, and has a great restaurant. Breakfast is good. Room a little small and antiquated - but - the views make up for it. The hotel is basically on a cliff in the elevated city. Our room had a breathtaking view of sunrise over Tuscany. Spectacular views of the countryside for miles. Dining room had similar views. We arrived in San Gimignano in time for sunset, had a great dinner at La Stella, and spent one night at the hotel. In the morning we woke and enjoyed the hotel's breakfast and then self-toured San Gimignano for a few hours before moving on. It was perfect.

This is the second time that we stayed at the Belsoggiorno. We use it as a home base for exploring the area. The location is great. It's the first hotel that you come to after entering the main city gate. The staff is very friendly and helpful and speaks excellent english. We haven't tried the restauraunt for dinner but the breakfast is very nice. Yes, San Gimignano is a tourist trap so don't plan on shopping for deals here but the town is fantastic AFTER all the tour busses have left around 5PM. However, the best reason to stay here are the views. Get a room overlooking the valley. Get up early, open the windows and just sit and watch the sun rise. It's incredible. The sunsets aren't half bad either.

Wew were absolutely delighted with our first 4 nights as we had a huge room (nr 2), with a wonderful terrace. However the last 3 nights we were moved to an attic room (nr 27, with a good window view but we missed the terrace, and the room was smaller. We were not expecting to be moved and were disappointed, and it was the same price! Otherwise the hotel is wonderful, location is perfect, dinner in the restaurant is great, although breakfast could be a little more varied! Staff are all lovely. I recommend it, but be careful about the room you book.

This is one of the nicest hotels I have ever stayed at. The rooms are terrific, the staff is freindly and helpful, San Gimignano is a gem, and the view from the breakfast room will take your breath away. When booking a room, I highly recommend getting a "Superior" room. These are the rooms with views. The increase in cost is worth every penny. Although San Gimignano can be very crowded during the day, the evenings and early mornings are quiet and wonderful. Staying in the town is worth the effort.

This hotel is located within the walled village - you need to park your car and bring your luggage up the streets. We didn't mind that but had spent the previous half hour driving around looking for the hotel! Our room out the back had a fantastic view over the Tuscan countryside and the breakfast room has the same amazing view.

Perfect location. We arrived by bus from the train station and walked into the city hoping our hotel wasn't too far away and there it was! It is right on the main street so expect car noise in the morning, when vendors are unloading their goods (as once the tourist crowds arrive, not many cars can get through) so bring ear plugs. The room was the cleanest we encountered while in Italy - I especially liked that the top cover of the bed was fresh white linen.

Belsoggiorno was delightful- just inside the walls of the city so easy to get to with bags (as you have to leave the car in the parking areas outside of the city itself). We received a very special room with a large terrace and amazing view of the tuscan hillsides- definately an added bonus and worth requesting! The restaurant downstairs is also beautiful- the breakfast is lovely and we ended up having a very very special dinner one night there as well- highly recommend it. We later found out there is some hotel parking for guests so make sure you ask about it as it is very limited. We used the public one instead (for 5 euros per 24hrs). If you can't get into the hotel parking be sure to use the carpark they reccommend (there are three different ones) as they all have different rates and we saved 50 euros by using the one they recommended. The rooms were very clean, very quiet- one of the best hotels we stayed in while in italy. We would DEFINATELY stay with belsoggiorno again!

We only had one night at Belsoggiorno because we moved to a Villa nearby for the next week. However, we visited this hotel for dining and assistance periodically throughout the next week. All the staff was helpful but especially Alysha?. I thought that she must be the owner since her incredibly high level of service and competence was beyond what anyone of our group could have hoped for. Each room was different but the one I was in was magnificent. It had everything plus a balcony and a view. The bed was very comfortable, the food was good, the room was very clean, and the location could not be beat. Venere.com is the only way to make your reservation in Italy since all the places we stayed through them were outstanding. Thank you.

Wonderful hotel! The staff were wonderful. Amazing views from room - we asked for the third floor - you open the window and there lies Tuscany! The second floor with extended terrace will probably work for families with children. Hotel was immaculate, the restaurant was topnotch, fine dining at reasonable prices (be sure to try the pear/cheese pudding entre! - weekends booked up quickly so we had to reserve to get a table. The hotel embodies the charm of San Gimignano. You can't put a price on that view! Location was great, on the main street but no real noise to worry about. Close to the best gelatarias, cafes, wine bar, and the town square. Evening were wonderful, a glass of wine from the winebar, relaxing by the great wall overlooking Tuscany, and running down the street to the hotel if we needed anything. Belsoggiorno has great internet service, and reasonable. This hotel helped make my boyfriend's and my vacation a dream - we found a wonderful jeweller around the corner and commissioned our wedding rings (we became engaged in Venice on St. Mark's Square) - so San Gimignano and Belsoggiorno are near and dear to our hearts - we plan on returning as soon as possible. Do stay there - you won't be disappointed. Try the horseback riding in Tuscany (hotel has information) - that was wonderful too. Best luck to all and I hope you'll be as happy there as we were. - Leslie and Jeff

A well located Hotel in the heart of town, ideal for exploring San Gimignano. The air conditioned Hotel restaurant is excellent with beautiful views across the Val D'Elsa. We had requested triple room which included a seperate romm within the room for our 12 year old daughter. Great place to stay for a short period.

Definitely could recommend this hotel to anybody in this price class. The 3-person suite for 135EUR/night in July was spacious with beautiful views to the countryside. Location inside the town is very good and everything is close by. Hotel garage few hundred meters away was an unexpected plus. Reception was friendly and helpful. At breakfast I felt little akward with two noisy kids vs. other clientele consisting mainly 30+ couples and older people. The town itself was minor disappointment, probably due to too high expectations. I found e.g. Cortona and Montepulciano more interesting.

Hotel Belsoggiorno was a great place to stay, right inside the gate of San G. A short walk to buses and parking. Our room was big and comfortable - bedroom separate from sitting room and even had a walk in closet. The only complaint was that the air conditioning was only in the bedroom which made it quite warm in the sitting room. We had no balcony, but the windows opened out and the views of Tuscany were spectacular. Ceiling fans in both rooms were great. Chiara at the front desk spoke very good English and was very helpful. Their sister hotel, Hotel Pescille, is about 5 minutes away and offers free shuttles throughout the day. The pool is there and very nice, except for a lot of bees. Lorenzo runs the grill...best bruschetta and kebobs in Tuscany. We would definitely go back!

We stayed one night in San Gimignano and it was great to wander the streets in the evening after the crowds had gone. Our room was on the back and had what must be one of the best views anywhere. The restaurant had the same fantastic view and the evening meal was superb. You have to carry bags from the car park to the hotel but this is only about 100 metres. The best car park is on the left as you approach the walls from the south, where the road bends left then right. There is an overnight rate of €15 so it is not too expensive.
