What they say about us


Without a doubt, San Gimignano is one of the most picturesque places in Tuscany: a postcard-perfect hilltop village punctuated by 14 tall towers. During the day, the town bustles with activity, but after the busloads of tourists depart, the romantic ambiance of yesteryear fills the cobbled streets. For the lucky few who spend the night, there is a jewel of small inn…


L’Antico Pozzo is the choicest inn within the walls, a 15th-century palazzo converted to a hotel in 1990 with careful attention to preserving the structural antiquity without sacrificing modern convenience (guests even have Internet access). The subdued elegance and comfort offer the most medieval-feeling experience in this most medieval of cities…


“Arguably the best hotel in this famous walled town, Il Pozzo occupies a 15th-century townhouse which has been carefully restored and tastefully decorated. There are original terracotta floors, beamed ceilings and delicate frescoes; rooms at the top have wonderful views.”
“Painstakingly restored 15th-century townhouse. Original terracotta floors, beamed ceilings and delicate frescoes throughout. Romantic bedrooms in pastels with four posters and ethereal drapes. A charming spot for romantics and local exploring. ”

The sense of heritage here is irresistible: stone arches and winding stairs lead to an intimate breakfast terrace; chic, spacious bedrooms are often replete with cornices and crowned with networks of beams. The posher room are named after poets and graded – Dante, a high-ceilinged beauty rich in polished woods, is the best. Naturally.

The service from Emanuel and Elizabeth and the entire staff was exceptional. I believe we had their largest suite and it was spacious and beautifully appointed. Better experience than a recent 5star hotel we stayed with recently.
We have to say that it was probably one of the nicest places we stayed in a long time the family that runs it I think it’s two sisters and a brother we’re just unbelievable as the old fashion really successful Italian way of running a hotel that’s all I can say the food was great for breakfast their services impeccable they have a passion and love for their business and it shows We totally recommend it wholly,wholly It’s a no-brainer
The room had a vaulted ceiling with a handpainted cherub and pastoral scenes. We ate breakfast on the terrace outside with linen tablecloths and many coffee refills!

If you want modern, or large and opulent, then this is not the hotel for you, but if you want small, personal, charming, lovely, then this is a great choice!

The hotel was a delightful surprize. Very clean and a combination of historical and modern which surprized us since the building was built in the 1400's

It is a delightful building with a wonderfully calm atmosphere. Without exception, the warm, very friendly and helpful staff, in all areas of this lovely hotel, worked hard to ensure that every aspect of our week’s stay there offered comfort, relaxation and enjoyment
Very well maintained and run hotel. Not on one of the piazzas, but quieter for it and still close to all the attractions

The outstanding scenary from window was exactly the one which I had been longing for many years

The Hotel L'Antico Pozzo is in the heart of an enchanting medieval city, San Gimignano. The building dates from the 15th century I believe and it's like walking into a glamorous and elegant home, the perfect escape from the rather busy streets of the city. Quiet, beautifully restored, frescoes, comfortable beds, charming staff, everything you love!
