Dating back to the 11th century, Leon Bianco is in Piazza della Cisterna, one of San Gimignano’s main squares. During the summer, breakfast is served on the quiet, relaxing terrace.

Villa Ducci has magnificent, panoramic views over the towers of San Gimignano, and is situated less than one mile from the city center. The origins of the villa are lost in time.

Great location & very helpful staff. We are walking the via francigena and the restaurant gave us a lovely pack lunch with fruit & pasta. They also, on request, gave us a very early breakfast at 6.15am. Wonderful staff. Thank you.
This was the most charming hotel ever...from the setting to the room decor to the balcony overlooking a gorgeous vista. The staff of this multi-generational family business could not have been nicer..so helpful with every thing we needed, and so thoughtful with making our stay a delight. We will definitely be back!
We have used this hotel several times in the past. We find the location in the centre of san gimignano ideal - the staff are most helpful and the views from the bedrooms we have used are stupendous.
Can't honestly say there is anything we disliked about the hotel or staff.
Location, square view was excellent. 8min walk to parkings.
The staff at the hotel were friendly and helpful, the room I found it clean, even though I booked a single room, I found myself surprised that the room had a beautiful balcony overlooking the Tuscan countryside. The signal of wifi I found it powerful, breakfast very varied.
Central location and view. The restaurant too is good
Premises should undergo a restyling. However the one thing we disliked the most is the check out time that is so early (11am).
place, view, comfort
It was pleasure to stay here. Perfect location in a heart of town, nice staff, charming room.
We stayed for three nights and just loved the location and the view from our balcony over the amazing country side.Sitting outside at their cafe was wonderful people watching and the Vino Rose was wonderful. The bus connection was great to Poggibonsi for you either to pick up a train or bus to anywhere else in Italy. An amazing place to stay!! You can purchase your train tickets at the station where the bus drops you off,there are machines inside the station.
Room 61 is right under the Reasturant and noisey at night. In their in room instructions it says they have a bus timetable which the front of desk didn't appear to know about,but we managed to pick one up from the Tobacco store. Read carefully as the top symbols represent the days of the weeks.
Beautiful location. Beautiful room. Excellent meals
Wi-Fi connection only lasted 2 minutes at a time requiring resigning in every time. Took a long time to find. Not made aware we could have driven our car to the door to unload luggage, wasn't told this by the hotel clerk when we arrived, so we schlepped our bags a very long way up hill to the hotel.
great view if you have a country-side balcony room
My room was quiet, clean and comfortable with a wonderful view of the countryside from the small private balcony. The breakfast room was spacious, also with wonderful views, and the breakfast was excellent. The hotel's position is fantastic, and as most of the visitors to the square leave early, it was quiet during the night.
The staff at reception could have been more welcoming and friendly.
The location is great! right in the center.
Some difficulties to find the place with a car. Breakfast can be better.
View of the Tuscan landscape is amazing from the rooms. Quadruple room is extremely large.
A room with a view of the Tuscan hills isn't guaranteed. We paid to upgrade to a quadruple room as the rooms overlooking the town square are noisy. Breakfast is only continental style unless you pay for scrambled eggs etc.
Hotel is in a great location, staff is friendly, and the restaurant is very good. Although small, the rooms are clean and cozy. We had a balcony with an excellent view of the Tuscan countryside.
Our room with a view on the Tuscan countryside was fabulous.
Fantastic location. Room was big and the staff provided a baby cot as requested. As we had to check out early in the morning the man on reception arranged us a take-away breakfast which we were very grateful of. Was a bit of a walk from the car park to hotel so best to pack light if possible.
Good quality dinner in reasonable price at comfortable restaurant. The staff is helpful.
The table and the cabinet in the room are too old and not match the decoration. The bed is uncomfortable to sleep.
The mountain towns of Italhy are unique -- requiring exgtra effort because vehicles are not permitted. But it is worth taking a car to the hotel, iunloading, then parking on the ring outside of town. Great history -- very good views --and excellent hotel restaurant!
The view from the room is the only good thing about this hotel.
Staff totally disinterested - returned back to her Facebook page as soon as we paid for the room by check out. Everything is outdated and bathroom is a disaster. Beds are uncomfortable. The picture they published does not correspond with the reality at all: they probably collected all nice pieces from all rooms and put it in one room to make the picture for advertising purposes. Total waste of money.
it was in the center of the town
hard to get there with car
Location is just perfect in centre of town
Fantastic location right on the main square. We were upgraded to a large room with a double aspect view of the valley - absolutely glorious! Very clean and comfortable with large bathroom. Excellent buffet breakfast and extremely friendly and helpful staff.
Nothing! I would highly recommend this lovely hotel.
The staff were very friendly and helpfull. The breakfast was excellant
Their could have been more choice on the evening menu.
