“Horrible!!”
Reviewed 4 October 2013

I dont know where people who wrote the reviews for this place were accommodated but my room was horrible!! Rooms dont look like the pictures, and I understand the building is from 1300 but some paint on the decrepit walls dont hurt anything.

We take this rooms from venere.com where didnt not specified the room is without bathroom!!! We had a shared bathroom with another two room, and the owner lady ask us to wash the floor in it after we take a shower. I dont pay a room to cleen it myself! Besides, in the next morning there was no toilet paper in the bathroom!! Lucky for us that we stayed only one night, anyway I would not have lasted more.
Everything is old in a bad way there, and the furniture are blighted.
Beside of that the lady owner have the guts to ask us to write a review on tripadvisor because she needs money for renovation. Renovation is needed indeed but not to fool customers by then!! ..and a last thing dont eat where this lady tells you because it also horrible like her "palazzo".
The position is only thing good about this place..and San Gimignano is a great place, crappy that we didnt enjoy it like we shood because of the accomodation.

This place was very quaint and it was in a great location with views of Tuscan countryside from our clean room (n. 5). We arrived earlier in the day, and Lola, the super-friendly housekeeper, let us in to drop our bags off, which was most appreciated. If I had to name a negative, I would say the shared bathroom between 3 or 4 rooms was a little inconvenient at busy times like before bed and in the morning when everyone in the place is looking to shower or wash up. However, it is my understanding that this is not an uncommon set-up with these beautiful, old homes, so it was easy to overlook. I would stay here again in a heartbeat, very good value-for-money.

We were a group of six friends from South Africa. We used San Gimignano as a base from where we traveled and enjoyed the rest of Tuscany. The character of Palazzo Buonaccorsi is more than special, neat and in the heart of San Gimignano. But the best of all was the personal attention and assistance that we got from Marzia. It is clearly her passion and not just a job.

My husband and i visited San Gimignano 17years ago. We took a photo behind the ancient wall of this old mediaval time and after 17 years we came back to visit this beautiful town again for our wedding annivesary.
Wanted to find a place within the old town and decided to pick Palazzo Buonaccorsi. Generally Aug is a busy month for travellers in Italy but I think there is tourist through out the year here. If yiu are coming by car, remember that there is very heavy restriction for cars entering the old town. Parking is extremely expensive so probably the best is coming by train or bus.
Made my booking with Signora Brunella. Told her that it was our wedding annivesary and she was very kind to offer us a bottle of sparkling wine to celebrate.
The little apartment we had was just beautiful. You enter into a small fully equip kitchen and a sitting room. Than there are some stairs which lead to the loft where there lies a king size bed. Love the feeling as it is inside an old building and very rustic.
My husband and I tried locating the same place where we had our picture taken 17 years ago. Unfortunately the upper part of the surrounding walls of the city is now close for tourist. Hope to visit San Gimignano again and will definitely stay at the Palazzo Buonaccorsi because of the services and location

We stayed at Palazzo Buonaccorsi for a week and couldn't have been better looked after. On our arrival Marzia upgraded our room to the gorgeous small apartment which came off the delightful courtyard towards the back of the building. Both Marzia and Pierluigi couldn't have been more helpfull and gave us lots of ideas on where to visit in the town and the surrounding district. Being so central in the town made exploring easy. We would recommend this to anyone as their first choice when staying in Tuscany.

Room Tip: The rooms off the courtyard are wonderful.

Palazzo Buonaccorsi is a wonderful place to stay! The two hosts Marzia and Pierlugi are so warm and welcoming that they make you feel like a real member of the community. Marzia helped the group I went with on book some great side trips and was always willing to go out of her way to make sure we were enjoying our stay. The rooms were beautiful and very spacious. The area was nice and quiet. All of the staff was vey kind and truly helped to make my visit to San Gimignano unforgettable! If you are looking for a place to stay it San Gimignano I would 100% recommend you to come here!

My wife and I stayed with Marzia and Pierluigi in June. They are excellent hosts, and the ancient palazzo is wonderfully charming. It is located at the far end of San Gimignano, away from the the tourist bustle and buses. Its courtyard is a medieval oasis. It is an excellent location for exploring this beautiful city.
