Hotel Alma Domus
Owned by the Catholic diocese and still home to six Dominican nuns, this convent now operates as a budget hotel. And though its prices are low, the standard of its recently renovated 4th floor rooms are anything but...
Campo Regio Relais
Siena's most charming hotel has only six rooms, all individually decorated and luxuriously equipped. Breakfast is served in the sumptuously decorated lounge or on the terrace, with a sensational view of the duomo and Torre del Mangia.
Al Pozzo Dei Desideri
Three rooms-with-a-view (two over the Tuscan countryside and one over the town's main piazza) are on offer in this recently opened B&B. All have a charming decor, stylish modern bathrooms, a fridge and tea- and coffee-making facilities...
Hotel management schools looking for an exemplar of a well-run business could easily cite the Athena. Operated by the Bianciardi family for the past four decades, it's clean, comfortable, meticulously maintained and friendly...
Around 2.5km north of Siena, this 19th-century villa with two annexes is set in formal gardens and has plenty of amenities, including a swimming pool, restaurant (dinner Thu-Tue €40) and tennis court...
Albergo Villa Nencini
A somewhat shabby family-run hotel, Villa Nencini is a mere 200m beyond Porta San Francesco yet has a decidedly country feel. The pool is a major drawcard in summer.
This is a good-value hotel realised by two friendly English-speaking ladies. Look for the remains of an Etruscan wall upstairs and savour the fine views from the roof garden – a genuine garden with lawns and bushes. There’s also a self-catering kitchen.
Albergo Il Marzocco
Run as a hotel by the same family for over a century, the rooms in this fabulous 16th-century building are large, comfortable and well furnished. Those with a balcony and views come at no extra cost.
Hotel San Lino
This former convent is the best sleeping option in the historic centre, but it's certainly not perfect. Pros include the swimming pool and reasonable rates. Cons come courtesy of small rooms with cramped bathrooms. Parking is €11 per day.
Occupies a 14th-century mansion. This smoothly run hotel is welcoming and friendly with a ground-floor abundance of plants, a pretty inner courtyard, a breakfast patio, a billiard table and a fitness room.
Although it is in sore need of a renovation, the Cisterna is worth considering due to its setting (a splendid 14th-century building on the piazza of the same name) and its rooftop breakfast room/restaurant, which has panoramic views...
Albergo Cannon D'oro
Basic but perfectly acceptable rooms at keen prices are the draw here. Don't be deterred by the golden cannon (the very one that gave the place its name) trained upon you as you face the otherwise amicable reception desk...
Hotel Vecchia Oliviera
Just beside the Porta Cerbaia, this former olive mill has been tastefully restored and converted into a stylish small hotel. Each of the 11 rooms is individually decorated; the superior ones come with view and jacuzzi...
Pros: this is a welcoming, family-run hotel with 10 neat rooms and a gorgeous terrace sporting views across to the duomo and Chiesa di San Domenico. Cons: uncomfortable beds and the fact that only two rooms – the single and triple – have air-con...
Villa Le Barone
Surrounded by a rose garden and commanding panoramic views, this tastefully converted manor house was once occupied by members of the famous Della Robbia family of Renaissance sculptors, so has a historical pedigree as impressive as its facilities (sw...
Nearly all of the 10 high-ceilinged double rooms at this excellent budget hotel have fantastic views; room 6 also has a private terrace (€100)...
Hotel L'antico Pozzo
Named after the old, softly illuminated pozzo (well) just off its lobby, this hotel occupies a 15th-century palazzo on busy Via San Matteo...
A five-minute drive from the town, this historic villa set in formal gardens has atmosphere and comfort in equal measure. There's a spectacular pool terrace and an excellent restaurant where dinner is served in the high season (six-course set menu €35).
Hotel La Perla
The bathrooms are tiny, some rooms are noisy and there is a steep staircase to contend with, but the central location of this friendly, cheap and well-run option certainly compensates. No breakfast.
DH Lawrence once stayed in this late-19th-century hotel. Rooms vary in size and style and some have balconies; room 403, with a pair of them, is your best option...
Functioning continuously since 1870, this hotel has a pleasant, spacious breakfast room and attractive, though somewhat dark, bedrooms. It has a popular restaurant (meals €20) where you’ll be dodging elbows to find a seat among the locals.
Camping Boschetto Di Piemma
Located at Santa Lucia, 2km south of San Gimignano, this is the nearest camp site. There’s a bus service between the two (€0.50).
