Reviewed 18 September 2013

Great place to stay and relax, travelling into Florence a little difficult but doable. Great to be in the Tuscany countryside and just relaxing and seeing the local sights. We had 4 nights in Rome, stayed in Tuscany for a break, and then continued onto Venice which was an excellent sequence. The town of San Gimignano was an outstanding day visit, very very cool.

Room Tip: Get a room with a view of the countryside.

One word: amazing.
My wife and i booked 2 nights there and after first night immediately decided to stay an extra night. Such a peaceful place with an amazing view. The staff was also super-friendly and helpful. Would recommend it to anyone.

We stayed at Villasanpaolo at the end of August. We had a beautiful, spotlessly clean room, with a balcony and a tremendous view of San Gimignano. The staff at the hotel were genuinely very friendly and helpful. In particular Sara on reception was lovely and helped us with directions and suggestions of places to visit. The pool was in a beautiful setting and was never too busy. There were also nice lawns for sunbathing. We booked half board at the hotel and enjoyed both breakfast and dinner. I felt that after our six night stay we had probably exhausted the dinner menu, although there were daily specials that were not on the regular menu. Having said this we were glad to have dinner at the hotel as San Gimignano is a car journey away and you have to park outside of the town, which could be exhausting after sightseeing all day! The dining room has beautiful views of the Tuscan countryside and the staff always ensured that we sat at a table which allowed us to see this.Overall this is a great hotel and we hope to visit it again one day.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the second floor with views of San Gimignano.

It's an overpriced place with lack of charm one would expect of a place in this area. Would not go back or recommend to anybody, unless you are just looking for a clean a d comfortable place to spend a night or two at. But why would you in this area?..

Dear Oles, as you may read from other reviews we fully respect all our guests and their opinions. we simply regret you could not feel how wonderful it can be our territory of San Gimignano, its landscapes , rich and valuable produces , cultural heritage . and , by al means , UNESCO given patronage and protection.

My husband and I enjoyed a 5 night stay at Villasanpaolo as part of our honeymoon to Italy. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay! We had a lovely room, it was on the ground floor which meant we have a private patio area and although it was quite dark in the room, it was a great size with a lovely clean bathroom and lots of wardrobe space. We were greeted with a bottle of champagne on arrival and although we unfortunately didn't have time to use it, also a free pass to the wellbeing centre in the hotel.
The pool and sunbathing area were great, not too busy whilst we were there and lovely and peaceful to relax and enjoy an afternoon snooze under an olive tree!
Aswell as breakfast on the terrace which was great with a lot of choice, we also dined in the restaurant 3 times during our stay which was lovely. There was a wide variety and the wines were excellent. There are a number of tables set in the window were the view is outstanding but you have to book and reserve these well in advance to get them.
The location of the hotel was perfect, set in the quiet countryside with only crickets for company however I would suggest a car is needed to get around and see the sights, of which there are many to visit all within an hour of Sam Gimignano.
We would love to return to Tuscany in the future to see more of it and would certainly recommend Villasanpaolo as a great base for any Tuscan holiday.

Room Tip: Although our room was a great size, lots of space and storage and the terrace was very private it wa...

Dear signor Alvaro, thank you for your stay with us at Villasanpaolo. As you may read from other reviews, we fully respect opinions of our Guests and from them we enjoy their appreciation, we learn how to further improve standards, we apology when critics have a real motivation.
Reading your review, very respectfully, we do not agree and we wish to provide correct information for readers, as hereafter. Your reservation and your original request, for which you have received a extremely detailed confirmation reply, did not include SPA entrance. Please kindly note we do not have a indoor pool, but we have a huge wellness pavillion named IRISPA, which include a large hydromassage pool, sauna, turkish bath and other different sections. We expose in our web several special offers including IRISPA benefits, and several others including other services, to give our Clientele as many options as possible, and avoiding obligations. Receptionist giving you information about IRISPA entrance fees, I am sorry to say but is never rude, perhaps can look discreet or may be shy, ma rudeness I can assure is not within his dna. I am sorry you do not mention a nice gesture we have done : your hotel reservation with instant confirmation and guarantee was done in evening of august 22nd. with arrival guarantee for same evening and for 1 night stay. You have in fact arrived the following day, august 23rd for a change in your plans, and without any advance notice to us. Our reception team, as hotel was not full the previous evening, did not charge any penalty fee for "no show" and I sincerely believe this is a polite and honest token to good hospitality. Finally, our full buffet breakfast and its tuscan section "mattina Toscana" do receive a very high degree of satisfaction by our international Clientele and I cannot understand comparison with other different hotel brand. It seems not really appropriate. I trust readers will appreciate this reply, as much as reading your review. kindest regards from San Gimignano, Luigi Zaccardi

We stayed for one week.....and did not want to leave !! Our room was exceptionally clean and well kitted out, and the balcony (although not with a view of San Gimignano but the beautiful Tuscan landscape ) was very pleasant.Initially we intended to eat out in the evenings in the beautiful Tuscan area.....but we quickly found that the food at the hotel was excellent and the service was very friendly and efficient, with many locally sourced foods. We made use of the spa , which is very well equipped, and the therapists are excellent....a beautiful place to "unwind"
Nothing was too much trouble for the staff during our stay, and on returning home to find a very minor discrepancy with our bill, Luigi the manager pulled out all the stops to correct the mistake and recompense us. We thoroughly enjoyed every moment of our stay and would definitely recommend it to anybody looking for a truly relaxing holiday in Tuscany.Can't wait to return !!!!

Room Tip: All rooms seemed to be of a very high standard and in good locations.
