We have stayed here a number of times over the last ten years, and each time are completely satisfied.
Our room is big and overlooks the main square. Triple glazing and effective shutters cut out noise and light if required
The rooms are individually air conditioned.
There is WiFi and a good choice of TV channels.
Breakfast is good with the choice of pleasant outdoor seating .

We, unfortunately, were only able to spend one night here, but it was fantastic. We actually booked this hotel the night before, due to a mixup at the place we were staying previously. Somehow we managed to get the 'Apartment' and it was just wonderful. HUGE. Two bedrooms, living room, bathroom. A gorgeous view of the Tuscan countryside. It's right in the city center so there's plenty to do and see. There was a concert the night we were there, right outside our hotel. The staff were very friendly. The breakfast was enough so that we didn't have to eat lunch. A truly wonderful place to stay in an equally wonderful little town.

The hotel is located in one if the best place in town. Close to all the interesting visit points at the city.
Actually right after I booked via booking.com the hotel contacted with me in order to give us arriving instructions.
When we arrive we were amazed by the hotel. Its small central located It's design beautifully , cosy , warm lobby. The room ( #30) was not big but was enough for a couple. The view from the window was spectacular !!
bed comfortable , the bathroom was very clean, with shower glass cabin. In the room there is air condition , mini bar and tv.
The stuff at the lobby was very helpful with tips of what to see and recommendations of restaurants .
Wonderful hotel in an amazing place !!

This hotel was centrally located in Piazza Cisterna (and the world's best gelato -- award winning) is located just across the square. We were able to drive right up to the hotel to unload the luggage. It was a nice surprise to be upgraded to the apartment! What a treat. The views from our room were spectacular. The staff were professional and helpful. This hotel served the nicest breakfast (with the nicest views) for the outdoors 2nd story terrace. We highly recommend.

This nice hotel is found right on the main square of this hill town. Our rooms were large and tastefully decorated. The staff were very helpful: arranged parking, made dinner reservations, aided with driving directions to and from Florence, etc. Our view was to the east- truly outstanding. If there were late night noises from the square, we did not hear it. The town was a great place to visit and we would consider coming back again. Our teenagers agreed. If we did, we would stay here for sure.

Leon Bianco offered us a very comfortable and pleasent stay, beautifully situated and with excellent service.
I think I´ve never experienced a better mix of location, service, comfort and price.

San Gimignano is beautiful, extraordinary, and during the daytime overcrowded with turists (like us). When the daytrippers have left, you can enjoy some excellent restaurants and have a quiet walk in the streets and piazzas, admire and wonder about the towers, and enjoy a beautiful tuscan sunset.
I have here stayed several times, and I have no doubt that Leon Bianco is the best base for a good experience.
My last stay was in June 2014. I took my 3 children, aged 16, 13 and 11, for a trip to Rome, Tuscany and Venice, and I felt that a visit to San Gimignano, with the distinct medieval layout opposed to the reinnesance marvels of Florence, was a must.
We had the apartment on the top floor, spacious and comfortable, very comfortable for a family, and very reasonably priced. I had ordered a quad room, and for the price I expected nothing more than a 4 bed room. What we got was an apartment with 2 bedrooms in addition to a very nice sittingroom and bathroom.
My children loved the late night sightseeing of San Gimignano, and were very impressed that the spa/ bubblebath were open late in the evening.
Early morning in San Gimignano is a fantastic experience, this is something you´ll never experience on the daytrips from Siena or Florence.

Room Tip: For families: Ask for the top floor apt., usually sold as a quad-room, but could easyly sleep more.

In the square, lovely view. Hotel very nice, helpful staff. Breakfast ok, not the best we had in Italy, but more than sufficient. Clean and good sized room. Parked outside walls in Car Park 1, A bit of a walk, but there is a bus if needed! Would go back again, San Gimignano is a great place.
