Hotel L'Antico Pozzo
Ranked #3 of 29 Hotels in San Gimignano
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 5 October 2007

Wonderful little hotel in the heart of San Gimignano, perfect for a romantic few days away. Breakfast in the courtyard outside was so peaceful and the continental style food yum. Service was excellent. I will definitely be making a return visit but next time not by myself!!

The Hotel L'Antico Pozzo is a great three star find. It's centrally located, tidy, and most comfortable three-star accommodation. My wife and I were quite pleased with our two-night stay at this hotel during peak season, as we enjoyed a cozy, attractive room with all the amenities you'd expect in this price range. (standard doubles will set you back 110-130 USD) Breakfasts were fresh and ample; service was friendly and helpful; and the hotel's peaceful courtyard was a plus.

If you are exploring Tuscany don't miss San Gimignano. It has all of the lovely charm of Tuscany and a perfect hotel. Hotel L'Anitco Pozzo is intimate and elegant, with comfy beds, spotless bathrooms and lovely rooftop views. We drove up to the hotel, through the stone gates of the town just long enough to drop our bags at the hotel and check in. We loved the town from that moment as several people helped direct our crazy 3 point turn on the ancient narrow street...applauding as we finally got going in the right direction.
You park down the hill, just outside of the town in a convenient lot.
San Gimignano is friendly and safe with nice shops and restaurants. The man at the front desk was very helpful with suggestions and directions in perfect english. We also made some day trips to surrounding villages and his suggested routes were very helpful.
My friend remarked every night at dinner, as she looked around at the charming scene " I could live here..I really could live here!"

We brought electric fans everywhere we went in Tuscany because it was late July and some hotels have little or no AC. This was a great idea and made sleeping easy on hot nights and lulled out street noise when necessary. We bought them in a store in the first town we stopped in.(best $20 spent!)

We arrived in the early afternoon to be told our room hadn't been booked because I, admittedly, hadn't read the email they sent me properly. It stated that I needed to send them my credit card details way down on the mail (BE WARNED). Fortunately they had another room, and although it was small it was nicely furnished and it had a good shower room. My issue was the service. The staff were really unhelpful and could barely lift a smile, maybe we caught them on a bad day! And the croissants at breakfast were burnt.

Great location but could be much, much better.

Following a note in Lonely planet, we book this hotel by calling them. Right in the center of this charming town, l'Antico Pozzo is a very good place to stay with a warm welcome, helpful advice and flawless room.
The breakfast on the patio was particularly enjoyable and I would recommend this place next time you stay at San Gimignano.
