This is a great countryside hotel. The rooms are simple, but comfortable and functional. We had a room with a view, and as you can see in the photos, it was stunning. The staff is very friendly and helpful, and are able to create a family atmosphere. The hotel is very quiet and you can get lost in their gardens where you can sunbathe, relax in the shade reading a book, or have a drink on the terrace. In summer the restaurant is closed at night because dinner is served on the barbecue. The continental breakfast buffet is pretty good. The pool and Jacuzzi are great. Private parking is available and free. There is a charge for WiFI and there isn't coverage throughout the hotel. The hotel closes its doors at 12 pm and opens around 5:30 or 6:30. If you need to get in during this time, you have to speak with the staff. It's nice for short stays and ideal if you want to spend a week in the area and get some rest. If you are driving, you should know that is about 4.5 km from San Gimignano. The GPS Coordinates are 43 º 26'55 .15 N, 91 E 11 º 01'24.

This summer, I stayed here for six nights during my visit to Florence, and I highly recommend it. It is located close to the bus and train station of Santa Maria Novella, and a tram stop. In about 15 - 20 minutes you can get downtown, making it perfect for exploring the city on foot. Part of the hotel has been recently renovated, so it has two zones, so to speak - the old and the new. I requested a room on the modern side, and got it, so keep in mind that this review is only about the new part of the hotel; I don't really know anything about the old. Everything was very clean and in good condition.
The most striking thing about the bathroom was the "hidden" TV, behind a kind of transparent panel. Very original. The breakfast was pretty good, served on the ground floor and offering all the usual selection: fruit, different kinds of pastries, sausages, toast ... there was a coffee machine for hot drinks, or you could order them separately from the waiting staff. There are magazines and books available for you to sit around and read, as well as tourist brochures. The staff were all very nice and friendly, and did their best to communicate with me despite the language barrier.

This NH four star hotel offers 129 rooms in an enormous building that's well-connected with many buses and right next to the center.
It's very recommendable because of its decor, location and for having a bus stop right below that takes you everywhere. It includes day trips that leave from Sienna from different points in Tuscany (the hotel has information about them), they have the same departure point in the square.
It's not great that one person has to stay for two consecutive days, and that you have to pay for internet in your room (I always say this, it should be a free service), or that they don't speak Spanish, but overall it's a modern, functional hotel and very recommendable.

Having returned from a tour through Tuscany, while based in beautiful Florence, I would like to share some details with the minube community to complete the information about this area that so many minubers have shared stories about. I'll start with the hotel, which was a pleasant surprise: The Hotel Palazzo Ruspoli is right in the historic center of Florence just 20 meters from the Duomo Santa Maria del Fiore, which can be seen from the hotel. The hotel's central location is conducive to walking to the main Florentine museums and monuments. Because it only offers breakfast, I thought this hotel operated more like a bed and breakfast. The concierge is only staffed from 8:00 until 11:00 in the morning, and from 14:00 to 18:30 in the evening. The rest of the time the hotel works like a flat; in fact, they give you the keys to the front entrance for you to open the door if you arrive outside the concierge's hours and they refer you to the Hotel Brunelleschi, which is nearby in case you have a problem. This didn't cause any problems for me, on the contrary, the site was very quiet despite being in the heart of the city. The hotel staff, the little I came in contact with him, was very polite and very friendly and the breakfast buffet was substantial. It is a charming hotel, very cozy, and ideal for couples. As for the price, I paid 79 euros per night (breakfast included)for a double room in March. I highly recommended this hotel, I would visit again.
