We spent 12 days at Locanda La Mandragola and loved every minute. It's true that San Gimignano is busy with tourists during the day, but Mandragola is a world all its own. Located just a block from the main drag, this place is quiet, comfortable, and beautiful. Chiara was a gem caring for us. Our room overlooked the peaceful garden and the rooftop terrace offered us the best of Tuscany for 360 degrees, the towers of town in one direction and the vineyards and hills in the other. Breakfast was outstanding and the whole place could not have been cleaner or more comfortable. We took a couple day trips to Siena and Pisa, but the highlight was right here in San Gimignano at the amazing Locanda La Mandragola!
I couldn't fault this place at all. Absolutely stunning room with incredible view of the garden. No expense spared on the furnishings. Rooftop balcony was a treat and we felt at home in the gardens.
This B&B is simply superb! Modern comfortable and quiet rooms and a beautiful large (kind of roof top) garden with tables, chairs and even loungers. Fantastic place to have a drink, enjoy a bottle of wine or just lie in the sun while admiring the towers of San Gimignano only 100 m away. Breakfast was good and had the level which you generally find these days in Italy: fruit juices, cereals, ham, sausage, cheese, sweets, coffee or tea. I cannot imagine a better place to stay in this town – despite of the small troubles in accessing the place and some small service deficiencies.
The B&B is within the city walls in zona traffico limitato, but in principle accessible with a car to unload the baggage. But attention: if you follow your navigation system you will end up directly in the central pedestrian zone with hundreds of people walking there, looking at you strangely and perhaps thinking that you are a real rowdy. This happened to us and we had tremendous difficulties to find a side exit from that zone leading us back to the main road circumventing San Gimignano. I strongly recommend to directly drive to parking lot P3 (15 EUR/day) and walk to the B&B with your luggage (5-8 minutes). Alternatively if you want to drive close to the hotel you should ask them to send you their instructive map how to access the street next to the B&B (you cannot enter Via Diaceto). If you have this know-how access is rather straightforward (albeit still leading you through a ZTL, but no video cameras installed!). I frankly do not understand why the B&B does not do that automatically upon reservation as many places do in Spain (which I just booked for our next Easter vacation). This is a definitive lack of service. Another less comfortable issue is that check-in starts only at 15.00h. Another service problem is the fact that they do not have a computer available with a printer, e.g. to make a check-in for your flights. WiFi is however functioning very well.
Especially liked the beautiful garden.
Everything,really nice friendly hotel in a good location.
Position is very convenient, just 5 minutes walk from main parks outside the town (be careful to don't carry many luggages because the San Gimignano pedestrians); Rural style rooms; HUGE CHOICE breakfast (I mean it); Good quality mattresses; Private garden where to relax; Good Wifi service
Everything about this hotel is first class, everything. The garden at the rear is very peaceful, we spent a number of hours there. The breakfast was very nice and included. There is also a restaurant nearby that is owned by the same family and offers 3 courses including everything on the menu, except for the Florentine Steak, for €20 per person. The food is delicious and generous in portions. This deal is only for guests. Wine is €8 per bottle and local, delicious.
Nothing to dislike
a decent hotel in the middle of the town, perfect location
WiFi was not working
I couldn't have been more satisfied with my choice to stay at Locanda La Mandragola. After booking, my request for directions to the B&B were promptly responded to by Alessandra who provided a detailed map of the town making the place easy to find by foot. I was checked in by Vierra, a lovely hostess and placed in the Margherita room facing the west where I could watch the sun set from my window. The location of the B&B was excellent, on the north end of San Gimignano, right next to a park and with rooftop views of the setting sun. In fact, the solarium (rooftop terrace) was one of my favorite places to enjoy the sunset with a glass of wine. The B&B also has a gated garden that was a cool and quiet oasis away from the tourist that crowd into San Gimignano during the day. The whole place including my room exceeded my expectations! Well designed, stylish, spacious, comfortable bed and very clean. The a/c worked great and the wifi connection was strong. Toiletries were amply supplied as well as complementary samples of the wonderful fragrant oils placed in the rooms and throughout the property of the B&B filling the place with the most wonderful aromas. The breakfast was superb: cappuccino, meat, cheese, pastries, cereal, yogurt fresh fruit and juices. This was a lovey choice to enjoy Tuscany and the surrounding countryside. Can't wait to return!
That I had to leave.
1. Great location in the center of the village. 2. Really nice hotel. Much better than the pictures in the website.(They should put more professional pictures, those they have aren't good enough) 3. Excellent decoration. 4. Nice view from the terrace. 5. Extremely helpfull staff (they gave us a key of the front door after we check out, because we left our baggage there). 5. Good breakfast 6. WiFi in the room
1. No 24 hours reception (but that wasn't a problem because we had keys.) 2. We had difficulties find it because when we asked people send us in a restaurant with the same name (and the same owners.)
Excellent value for money. Perfectly situated in center of town. Nice and clean room. Excellent garden. Standard breakfast.
Beautiful garden, nice rooftop, excellent location and good breakfast. Would return there any time!
A wonderful oasis of peace and comfort in the centre of San Gimignano. Our large room opened onto a lovely sunny garden. Very good breakfast.
Location. Friendly staff. Clean rooms. Good breakfast. Good price.
No coffee or tea-making facilities in room.
Location in picturesque, historic San Gimignano
Have stayed in this hotel on last visit to San Gimignano and once again have no hesitation in strongly recommending same. It is a delightful little gem nestling in the middle of the town just off the main street with resultant peace and quiet. Hotel is small (Approx 8 bedrooms) and can be difficult to find (located beside north gate but bus stops at south gate which leaves 15 minute walk to hotel). The hotel is close to the main square and there are numerous restaurants nearby.The hotel has a very nice rear garden with many tables and chairs to relax with drinks. Most enjoyable.
Really nice spacious room, beautiful garden & excellent breakfast.
We liked everything.
Lovely village! Good value compared to other places in the area. Reasonably good breakfast included.
Location in the centre of old town is excellent.
NO car access and parking space rather far from premise.
Nice hotel in the middle of the town with everything in walking distance. Very quiet. Friendly staff.
Rather tricky to reach by car: you have to go inside the town to Via Mainardi street to unload your luggage, but then you have to park the car outside the city walls (however hotel staff helped to find places with free parking in a walking distance).
Everywhere special parfumerie for home was placed - that made excellent atmosphere, very nice.
Very pleasant and central location, clean, friendly, excellent value. Their restaurant is also outstanding.
The room was really lovely, spacious with charming furnishings. The bathroom was a good size with extra toiletries provided free. We were very happy with the room.
It was not easy to find. The hostess was less than friendly and not very helpful when asked for assistance where internet/printer services could be found locally. The breakfast was adequate, but was continental only.
