    Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel L'Antico Pozzo San Gimignano

    Loved Antico Pozzo

    from

    Recently enjoyed a whirlwind trip of Europe, ending with a couple of days at San Gimignano. A great place to end the trip, especially Hotel L'Antio Pozzo. Newly refurbished and nicely done. Many of current amenities we're used to, but keeping the old charm of San Gimi. Would definitely stay there again.

    Loved Antico Pozzo

    from

    When our daughter got married in bellagio in April of 2004 we rented all of the apartments at the Antico Pozzo for our friends. These are new, very nice apartments. There is no view but a very comfortable apartment for a very reasonable price.They also have a great restaurant attached to the apartments with good food also at reasonable prices. I would highly recommend Antico Pozzo

    A Bit of Medieval Heaven

    from

    We spent four nights at the L'Antico Pozzo in March,'04 and loved every minute. You are truly stepping back a few centuries. We used San Gimignano as our base to visit all of Tuscany with the exception of Florence, where we later spent six days. What a wonderful hotel! Our room was spacious and beautiful, right off a lovely courtyard. The breakfasts were superb and the staff couldn't have been more accomodating. We parked our car at an indoor garage in a space held by the hotel, only a five minute walk away. I highly recommend staying in San Gimignano and hope we will be able to return to L'Antico Pozzo. Be sure you have good, solid, comfortable walking shoes!

    Our place in San Gimi!

    from

    This is a wonderful little gem of a hotel. We have stayed here twice in the past two years and we just love the town (San Gimi is wonderful), the service and the rooms. We get a junior suite -- I suggest you do the same. Rooms 12 and 14 are both wonderful. The regular rooms are smaller and not as cute. Enjoy!

    Comfort with Class in San Gimignano

    from

    A stay at this perfectly located, beautifully restored medieval palace is a must when visiting this incredible treasure of a town. The hotel is furnished in the best of taste: unfussy and elegant and the staff is incredibly informed....they even helped us locate a church where we could be married!! Unforgettable!

    Damp smell

    from

    We stayed here for two nights, which was one night too long! San Gimignano is a tourist magnet, which can be enjoyed in an afternoon or evening. Our room initally was very pretty but only had a view of a fire-escape and brick wall to replace the beautiful Tuscan landscape!

    After changing rooms, the view was much better (ish) but the room very dull. The air conditioning didn't work and the lights in the bathroom failed.

    Breakfast was acceptable, set in the courtyard but there was a distinct smell of damp throughout the hotel (emanating from a "dungeon" and "well") The bar wasn't inviting.

    Reception service was frosty and did absolutely nothing except for check us in and out! This is not good enough. "Established" Italian hotels like this need to wake up and smell the coffee!

    Excellent service

    from

    This is a FABULOUS hotel. The rooms were wonderful and ours looked over the rooftops of this small town!!!! There was a good variety of food offered at breakfast and the service was excellent!!!! Upon arriving at breakfast, the staff person would inquire if we wanted coffee, tea or hot chocolate!!! Then we would help ourselves to the rest of the breakfast and sit outside in a lovely area. What we really appreciated about this hotel was the very fine service we received from desk staff.

    We had booked a flat in town but it was very noisey and was hot!!! So, the person at the front desk was very helpful in finding us rooms at the last minute so we could have peace and quiet (and a/c!!!) The front desk staff was also VERY helpful in providing directions to the hilltowns. They gave us scenic routes that we would not have taken.

    Also, with their directions we did not get lost!!!!! Most important to us, was the help they gave us when our credit cards and money were stolen. They were sympathetic and helpful. I did not speak much Italian so it was great that they spoke English!! I can't say enough about the wonderful staff!! There is also internet onsite which was very nice.

    And last of all, this hotel is in a great location!!!!! I would obviously highly recommend this hotel!!!!!

    Loved the L'Antico Pozzo

    from

    We stayed at the L'Antico Pozzo in both 2001 and 2002. Originally, we had made reservations ouside of San Gimignano, but really wanted to be inside the city walls. After consulting Frommers, we moved to the L'Antico Pozzo which was less expensive than where we were staying.Room #14 was just incredible. Windows overlooking the street, canopied bed, and a large bathroom. While it was a little noisy in the mornings (street and breakfast room noise), we would definitely go back. Highlights: Nights in San Gimignano. Very quiet and romantic. Introduced to a great local wine Chianti Colle Senesi by the night manager.Small Issues: Night manager did not know how to connect to Internet. Air conditioning sometimes went off at night.

    Wonderful Tuscan Hotel!

    from

    The Hotel L'Antico Pozzo is a beautiful hotel and our room was phenomenal (room 14 is well worth the upgrade). The hotel's private patio is nice for re-capping the day's events over a bottle of wine. Their attention to detail enhances its reputation as a place for "lovers of art," and they really take care of their guests with a huge breakfast and air conditioning. However, they DON'T ship wine, so limit your purchases if you visit the local wineries. As for San G, it is a great home base for doing day trips around Tuscany. Francesca at the wine shop across from the hotel knows her stuff and is fun to talk to. And don't overlook the Torture Museum... macabre, but fascinating.

    A small gem

    from

    Patrizia and the rest of this hard working, caring staff went out of their way to take care of everything we needed in a very polite and professional style. The room was beautiful and the hotel was well located - just like the town. We will be back.

    ... I realized my seat was crooked! Not too smart! Cyndy has not biked as much as the rest of us - and this as a major ride. She was pretty spent from struggling with the gearing and the four kilometers of gravel road - and then she hit the major hills. Not such fun for the Cynd! :-(

    We took Rick Steve's advice and found a small town off the beaten path. We found a 1300s treasure hunt to check out 13 km from a train station in a town we didn't know how to pronounce. After arriving we found our hotel to have a gorgeous view, so beautiful in fact we slept most of ...

    Shopping and parades....and a little serendipity

    ... the focaccia. €1.50? Who needs a receipt....well, seems if we didn't get a receipt, perhaps the shop didn't ring it up and if they didn't ring it up, they don't pay the VAT....scary, cause we really like the focaccia place. We had lunch at I fratelli for the second day in a row...something about butter and anchovy keeps me coming back! Of course Larry likes the tomato and bufala mozzarella. And then came the afternoon siesta...yep, after 12 hours ...

    ... quite large and we were all packed onto a large bus. This is what we were expecting as we chose the cheapest one we could find (they were generally super expensive). The first stop was at a vineyard about 40 minutes out of Florence where we had a small tour of the inside part and explained why Chianti is so amazing and how they make it. We then got to try all of the different Chianti wines (one white and about 5 reds) and learned about the different types and the government ...
