We enthusiastically recommend this hotel because of the very helpful staff and the spacious rooms . The view from our third floor room really gave you a true taste of Tuscany.
The room overlooked a period courtyard, an olive grove and a fortress on a hill. Compared to other hotels we stayed at during our 3 week exploration of Tuscany, the rooms at the Antico were more spacious. Our room included an extra bed on which we conveniently placed our over-sized bags. The bathroom was compact but very modern. The room was tastefully decorated and contained antique furniture. A full continental breakfast was included in the room rate and it was satisfying . WIFI was provided to us for free. What really distinguished this hotel though was the very helpful staff. They advised us on the best bus and train connections to our next destination and made excellent nearby restaurant recommendations. There is a shuttle for guests that will take you to the hotel from the Porta Giovani ,where you are dropped off by bus outside the city gates. You may need to call ahead though and advise the hotel of your arrival. Otherwise, you will have to trudge uphill to where the hotel is located towards the rear of San Gimignano. The hotel staff also informed us that buses to the train station stop outside the Porta Strada which is more convenient to the hotel (front desk will check bus schedule for you). This will avoid the longish trek back to the Porta Giovani upon your departure. We highly recommend a stay in San Gimignano and this hotel. You have the city all to yourself at night when the tourist buses pull out and you have a sense of having been transported back in time. Very Cool !
