We stayed at this hotel while on a Northern Italy road trip and San Gimignano was our first stop. The hotel is quite lovely and the location is perfect, just steps from the towns entry gate. An older building, the hotel was charming with a beautiful lobby, tiny 4 person elevator and very nicely appointed larger rooms. This hotel is right in the town but the eastern side of the hotel faces out to the beautiful Tuscan countryside, and we were blown away by the view of the rolling hills from the rooms window. Here you get the best of both worlds. You can walk the city during the day (or night when the town empties out of the day tourists) or you can retire for a rest to your room and with glass of wine and enjoy the countryside view. The room we had was a four person room, with a bar fridge and a large walk in closet. The bathroom was large, well laid out and had lots of hot water. Our friends who accompanied us had a two person room that was large and had table and chair by the window (but no bar fridge). As is typical in Europe, the double bed in our room was made by placing two single beds together. The beds are very hard. This also seems to be a European norm. There are no pillow top beds as you would find at a typical North American hotel, these are designed to last a century. The breakfast was quite good (€6 per person) and had wonderful coffee, sweets, eggs, sliced meats and juice. The room has a glass wall facing east and has lovely views of the Tuscan hills.
We loved this hotel and I can forgive the hard beds as the views and the location was fantastic.

San Gimignano is a beautiful hill town in Tuscany encircled by a 14th century wall. It is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and about 13 of the original tower houses still exist. Friends recommended Hotel Bel Soggiorno and we were not disappointed. Ask for a room facing the valley and you will awake each morning with a breathtaking view. We spent our morning & evenings sitting out on the balcony sipping prosecco & relaxing. This town is a gem & the hotel was very, very nice. A definite recommendation.

This is a very pleasant hotel within the city walls and with a companion restaurant in the same building. Reception staff were friendly and helpful. Our room had a magnificent view over the Tuscan country side. It was facing east so the sun rise was spectacular. The room was very comfortable and well furnished. Breakfast was OK and seemed par for the course in these Tuscan hotels.

Use car park two if you can as the hotel is a short walk through the town gate. When we arrived we had to use a car park diametrically opposite which meant a 20 minute walk through the town. The car parks clear of day trippers around 18:30 which is when we moved to car park two.

Sitting on the balcony with a relaxing Chianti Classico was extremely pleasurable. From the hotel you can walk to the central square in 5 minutes. We would certainly stay here when we visit San Gimignano again, but this time not leave a gap of 43 years.

Room tip: East side as high as possible

We were lucky enough to get a room with a shared terrace (between 3 rooms) which had the most fantastic view (the same as the restaurant has). We had our own table and chairs and sun loungers and there was normally no-one else out there with us so it felt very exclusive. The hotel is in a great location in the town, just inside the gates and near the main square. All the staff were very friendly and helpful. The bedrooms are not modern and the bathroom was very small but it seemed to fit the style of the hotel and as we were only staying for 2 nights it was fine for us. The terrace made it for us though. We sat outside one late afternoon on the sun loungers in the sun watching thunderstorms across the valley and one grew closer and closer until we had to rush indoors as hail stones came down on us. Unbelievable to be in the heat of the sun one minute to hailstones the next. A great experience. We ate in the restaurant both evenings as it was including in our holiday and I highly recommend it.

Room tip: The rooms with a shared terrace add a touch of luxury

Just inside the town gates and along the bustling cobbled road into the centre of the town, this delightful, family run hotel sits beautifully disguised between busy shops and its own restaurant. We had walked a long way and were given a warm welcome in English despite our attempts in Italian. We got to the room to find it all very dark, then the wonderful surprise - opening the wooden shutters revealed a panoramic view over the beautiful Tuscan countryside - a view that changed as the day progressed and which sometimes became dark and broody with the thunderstorms that Tuscany experiences. The room was large, we had a bath and over bath shower - the bath was very welcome after a 13 mile walk.
Breakfast was a spread of cheeses, hams, toast, jams and cakes. The coffee was not too good but that was about the only criticism we had. Breakfast with the same beautiful views we had from our bedroom. Beautifully decorated and carpeted, marble floors - we loved this haven inside the very touristy (from 9-5) town.

Room tip: Ask for a room at the back of the hotel looking out across countryside
