The palace is situated in the midst of Tuscany, in San Gimignano, a beautifully preserved medieval hill town, strategically placed between Pisa, Florence, Siena, Chianti and Lucca, and it provides an ideal base for the exploration of Tuscany.Palazzo Buonaccorsi, is a wonderful Historical House, dating from the thirteenth century and is located in the main street of the historic centre of San Gimignano, inside the city walls. Step away from the most beautiful squares of the medieval town and its imposing towers.The rooms are confortable, furnished with family antiques and tastefully selected appropriate, gives the impression of being a guest in the home of a famous person of times past.This feeling of intimacy and ease, is further encouraged by the Italian welcome of Pierluigi, together with his wife Marzia, and the their valuable informations.Their are proud to continue this family tradition, opening the ancient doors of this historical residence and to offer their guests a very pleasant stay under the medieval towers of San Gimignano.Residenza d'Epoca Palazzo Buonaccorsi is a haven of solicitude and courtesy from the family Boldrini.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

San Gimignano was a highlight of our trip, it is such a cool city and the surrounding countryside is spectacular. But our room, our courtyard and the city itself (especially in the rain) was breathtaking. The room was clean and comfy, and the location was perfect. I felt transported back in time. Marzia was spectacular - her attention to detail and especially her help with recommendations and aligning us with drivers was like magic. She knows everything and everyone about this place and it really helps. Would go back here in a heartbeat, it was perfect.

My stay was absolutely incredible. I took my 8 person family to San Gimignano because I wanted them to experience a tuscan city while also having plenty of liberty to explore on their own outside of our wine tasting and other activities. The host Marzia was so kind and gave us amazing recommendations. I highly recommend staying here with family, as a couple, or solo. They made yuo feel at home!

A very, very special hotel. Located right in the heart of the old town. Easy walking distance to everywhere. Rooms are fairly standard, but clean and a good size. What makes this hotel special is the receptionist. She could not have been more helpful- booking us a hotel for our onward trip (and negotiating a discount on a busy Saturday night), recommending us a brilliant restaurant and general info about the town. I heartily recommend this hotel

The staff was fantastic and extremely accommodating! Checkin was smooth, and the staff offered severa suggestions on things to do, places to eat, etc….The room was spacious enough for our family of 7. The location is perfect and close to several restaurants, bars, and sights.

Exquisite accommodation; original furniture and artworks, amazing location, quiet…. Can’t expect anything better! Marzia, our host was exceptionally friendly and helpful; she managed to book a table in one of the finest restaurants in San Gimignano during a wine festival when it was all booked out. She also gave us many recommendations about what to do, where to park the car etc. I highly recommend Palazzo Buonaccorsi for an outstanding stay.

Ok, let's start from the beginning. I fully understand that this place is special for the owners due to family heritage but when you decide to rent accommodation you need at LEAST to cover basic needs. Attached are photos from the supposed bathroom. I expect an excuse like "this is a real palace of the 13th century" but this doesn't mean anything. I understand that the Innovation will not be there but seriously, we couldn't take a shower nor use the toilet. On another note, the room was smelly due to humidity. Also there was no heating. Re helpfulness and hospitality, by reading the owner's responses to other bad reviews, one can understand that in this property the customer is NEVER right. We were doing city hoping in Tuscany and my girlfriend had a luggage of 20kg. We were allocated in the 2nd floor. I understand that in such a place, there is no elevator but I would suggest 2 options : 1) either inform the guests upfront that they will have to carry their staff through a tiny staircase or 2) have someone available to help. When it comes to the free parking, that was the most funny part. THERE IS NOT A FREE PARKING. The owner will ask you to log into Google maps to show you where you MIGHT find a parking space by the road in which you won't have to pay. In a public space. Lastly, we opened the fridge and we found an opened bottle of water. Probably forgotten. To conclude, this was the worst accommodation we had in Italy, thankfully it was only for one night. The location is truly great though. And one advice if I may as I also work in hospitality. I truly understand that this property is something unique for the owners. But there is huge area of improvement if you want to earn a living from hospitality. Long story short, everything that is written in the negative reviews, it's accurate and true. Now I am waiting for the owners response that I am the one to blame...maybe I am, since I booked it by myself

Booked a triple room and got a single. When booked I was told breakfast was included, no breakfast. I got a coupon for a coffe and a bad brioche. No maid service. Advertised free parking. If you can walk half a mile to you car and leave it parked on a narrow road, then it was free. 15 € per night to park a little closer. This place deserves a negative rating. Please don’t waste you money staying here. Unfortunately I cannot say anything positive about this property or the owner.

I know most people were happy, however we were not at all. We stayed in the 1 bed studio downstairs in the cellar section, equipped with a kitchenette, dining table and access to the courtyard. The Palazzo was lovely upstairs although l only saw the large sitting room. Other bedrooms look lovely on the internet. We did ask if we could move into one of the rooms upstairs but the owners kept saying they were fully booked!!! They were not booked out, as seen on booking.com website, just stubborness. I even spoke to the landlady and told her l was feeling quite depressed in the (train tunnel cave) we were staying in. That had a shrug the shoulders response. To be honest it was so dark, damp and mosquito ridden from the courtyard as she insisted upon watering each day. During our last couple of days stay l asked for fresh towels and toilet paper!!! She was quite aghast and asked me why l needed toilet paper!!! She also said to dry our towels outside on the chair even though the towels were already 3 days used. A very disappointing reply from the landlady to say the least. We had paid upfront for the accommodation at least a year beforehand. I had my own insect repellent but she expected me to buy the insect spray....... To add, the dishcloth was well used when we arrived and never changed. The shower area was dark and very small. The TV very small and hard to see. Couldn't open the windows or doors for flies and mosquitos would come in. Landlady told me she was not happy with me when l said l was tired and felt ill upon arrival and l had asked to go to our room as we were listening to the fine detailed instructions and information when we arrived. It was too much. I felt the stay wasn't about us at all it was about the accommodation place and the landlords. I must state that the staff girls ie: Bianca and others were lovely and accommodating. We would never stay there ever again. Such a shame to feel this way particularly in a lovely village as San Gimignano
