“nice hotel in a great location to explore toscany”
Reviewed 19 November 2013

this nice family run hotel is located very close to the enrence to the old city of San Gimignano . It is nestled among the grape vineyard and beautiful hills of toscany . Rooms are spacy and nice even though a bit oldy. Nice terrace with exit to the garden and pool/ The view is beautiful/ The location is great to explore other parts of Toscany like Siena , Florence and even cinque terra which is great. Breakfast and dinner were great. Very tasty and big selection of Italian cuisine. Suitable for customer who sick a nice clean hotel property to explore this part of Italy whith reasonable price.

Room Tip: You should ask for a room with exit to the pool

Nice room, well located and comfortable. Breakfast was adequate and staff friendly and helpful. I had emailed 3 weeks prior to our trip to inquire if they could make restaurant reservations for me and they did!

What can I say that hasn't already been said? This hotel is simply lovely. From the moment we arrived we felt relaxed. The location about 25 minutes walk from San Gimignano is superb and very peaceful. The hotel itself is so quiet, and the whole place is beautifully maintained without any fuss. The management and staff are friendly, welcoming and helpful without being in any way intrusive. Each room is simply and stylishly furnished and has either a Terrace or balcony overlooking the countryside or the pool. Internet access in our room was excellent. The bed was large and comfy and the bathroom was spacious and spotlessly clean. The pool area is well layed out with plenty of sun loungers, chairs and umbrellas and a very efficient bar service. (snack prices are very reasonable as are the minibar prices in the room. Breakfast, served on the sunny terrace, was the best we've had in Italy. We would love to come back soon but I suspect the hotel won't remain a secret for long so come while you can. Well done Family Failli and thank you!

We only stayed here one night, but we wish we had spent more time on the terrace. The sweeping view of the countryside seemed too good to be true. We enjoyed a delicious dinner in the hotel restaurant with gnocchi, wine, bruschetta and florentine steak. Breakfast was quite extensive for Italy and was served outside overlooking Tuscany. Not an expensive hotel for the amenities offered and the scenery!

Room Tip: Make sure you have a balcony or terrace!

We reserved 3 rooms for extended family vacation. Spent 5 days using this location as a base. The location is great for touring Tuscany. We drove to Pisa, took a bus to Florence and drove to Siena. 15 minutes to train station. Walking path to San Gimignano - beautiful vistas. After spending time in the South of France and Cinque Terre, we LOVED the large parking lot. The rooms and facilities were impeccably clean, food was excellent. Agnese was so kind and helpful. The hotel was peaceful and relaxing. We will definitely come back.

Room Tip: We asked for a room on the 1st floor (2nd floor for North Americans) with a view of the hillside. I...

We stayed 3 nights at Hotel Sovestro while touring through Tuscany. We found this to be a great home base for a tour through the Chianti region. The hotel staff were very friendly and helpful, and our room was very clean and comfortable. The hotel is walking distance to San Gimignano (there is a back road that you can safely walk to town - about 20 minutes uphill), which was an amazing little town. We would definitely return when in Tuscany.
