Don't judge a book by it's cover. The interesting entrance may throw you off. But once you get you and your luggage up stairs you will be happy with the modern feel and quality. Hotel staff is uber friendly and helpful. Great location. Just wish we had more time to stay another night!

Charming hotel in the heart of San Gimignano with best views - either on Piazza della Cisterna or on the Tuscan hills - it's up to you to choose:) Very friendly and supportive staff ready to help at any time.

We stayed here for two nights and thoroughly enjoyed it. Our room was large and airy with a marvellous view of the tuscan hills. Stepping outside the front door of the hotel and you enter the main piazza where there are restaurants and shops, and in the adjacent square the city museum and the "Duomo".

This hotel was wonderful! My boyfriend and I stayed this summer. Perfectly centrally located and our room overlooked the beautiful Piazza Cisterna. As for accommodations, wonderful terrace breakfast, fully functional AC and large bathrooms. If you have a chance, go on the sponsored wine tour through the hotel; you will not regret it. Overall wonderful stay.

Really lovely hotel, located on the prettiest spare in San Gimignano. Huge, airy room, with a perfect bathroom. We had a stunning view over the Tuscan countryside. The selection at breakfast could have been better, but the quality of what was there was good.

Leon Bianco is located in the very centre of San Gimignano, front desk staff are very helpful, breakfast at the terrace is lovely, but they should start serving earlier than 07.00 for early departures.
