Hotel Sovestro is a small, somewhat quaint hotel on the outskirts of San Gimignano. Although surrounded by the most beautiful scenery in Tuscany, our room was somewhat close to the road and there was some noise. The rooms are small with a little patio area; however, that area is small and very close to neighbors in the adjoining rooms. Still,...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 10 August 2016

Thank you Hotel Sovestro for another wonderful stay. The pool is immaculately clean and a pleasure to swim in. The small pool is also good for cooling off when the bigger pool is more full in the afternoons; it's great to have two venues for relaxation. The breakfasts are a joy with a wide choice of fruit, meat, pastries, bread...

We stayed one evening in a standard double room which had a wardrobe, small safe, one luggage rack, small desk, fridge, chair, comfortable bed and bed tables. The bathroom was small by American standards with a small shower and heat rack. The light was poor and we did not find a coffee or tea maker in the room, unlike the...

A quiet hotel with restaurant, nice garden and outdoor swimming pool located about 10 minutes from the small middle-aged city of San Gimignano. Big room, big bathroom, and possibility to make coffee/tea in the room. Good WiFi receptions inside room and outdoor. The breakfast was excellent, with good selections of dishes.

We were supposed to stay in a agritourismo villa in the region, but we felt we did not want to have to go to the grocery and cook, so we choose Hotel Sovestro because it look different then the other Hotel.

I don't think I've seen a harder working family run business. I don't think all the staff are related, but many are and they are really hard workers and can't do enough to make sure you have everything you need. The father must work 80 hours a week. He is EVERYWHERE. The mother is the Chef, the grandmother (and grandfather...
