Hotel Semifonte

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

This is a supercute little hotel in a kicky area of town near the duomo and the David museum and that awesome gelato place. The elevator is really small but the rooms are roomy and fun. The people is nice too.

To stay in hotel you need to travel by car, coz hotel is located far away from Florenze and Siena too. I reccomend the restaurant and quality of rooms. Also staff was nice and helpful. Everything was perfect.

We are staying here at this moment and for anyone who is thinking of staying here in the next few days, don't. Yesterday, a coach full of very, very, noisy, excitable children arrived. They were running up and down the corridor outside our room and in and out of each other's. We had an hours reprieve while they had dinner, then it went on again after dinner until 10.15pm. I thought we were staying in a hostel. Imagine our dismay, when tonight, not one, but TWO coach loads arrived. Twice the noise, twice the banging. We went, very respectfully to ask to be moved, as we are surrounded on all sides by children, and all we got was a shrug of the shoulders from the duty manager and shaking of heads from two teachers. We are parents ourselves and have grandchildren, so are not children haters. This is our first time in Tuscany, and this is really ruining our holiday. We will be looking for alternate accommodation tomorrow. This is totally unacceptable. DO NOT BOOK !

Found this hotel on line as it was close to the company we were visiting. Stayed 2 nights as we arrived around 7pm we decided to eat in the hotel restaurant. The service, food and drink were good enough for us to eat at the restaurant the second night. The rooms were very comfortable mini bar etc. Breakfast which was included had a good selection continental. Great coffee. All the staff were excellent. November is off season the charges for the rooms, drinks, dinner, breakfast was very reasonable. Will definitely stay here again on my next visit. The hotel had a pool and is central to the Chianti region so would make a good touring base.

We stayed here for a stop over on route to our holiday accommodation. The staff were very friendly and helpful, check in was quick. Our room was very clean and big enough for a family of 4. I had a requested a cot it was all ready and waiting when got to the room. The food in the restaurant was of a good standard. I had the beef stew with chianti which I very much enjoyed. a wide selection for breakfast but a shame there was no fresh coffee. The downside was that there was a light fitting hanging off the wall which was low enough for the children to get too. The pool was also very cloudy which was off putting so we didn't use it. Overall, good for what we needed.

Very good hotel, modern architecture in quite place with nice room and good meal . The staff was very helpfool and pleasent Excellent position for travelling around Toscana. Beáta , guide from Slovakia

A nice place. A little bit far from the town. The room was good beside the shower - which isn't that good at all. Good parkin spot near the main road. Not a very good Wifi connection though, but we almsot didn't need it.

We stayed in the Semifonte for five nights as a base for exploring Tuscany. From the hotel you are central to Siena, Florence and San Gimignano. The hotel room and bathroom are spacious, well appointed and very clean. The air conditioning was a little warm for my taste, but was very quiet. WIFI is free, but the signal was so weak as to make it practically useless. The breakfast is very good with plenty of variety and nice cappucino. We ate at the hotel on three nights and enjoyed the meals, the food and drink prices are very reasonable. The hotel pool was much appreciated at the end of a hot days sightseeing, as was the ‘happy hour’ drinks and nibbles. The hotel is located to the north of Poggibonsi with little else nearby other than a large supermarket and is best suited to travellers with cars.

We stayed at this hotel for 2 nights. We were a family of 4. Rooms is tight for 4 and sofa beds are used. The hotel is in a industrial area with good access to many sites but do not expect nice views around the hotel, which is a pity considering you are in a beautiful area of Tuscany. Breakfast is very good, hotel is clean and staff is nice but maintenance is very average. We had a inoperable sink that was not addressed due to lack of personal @ 6pm..we left the next day. I would only recommend for one night if you do not care about the area in which the hotel is located.

Just about to check out... This place tries sooooo hard for their guest's satisfaction. Excellent breakfast buffet with delicious cappuccino if you kindly ask the efficient staff. Bravo tutti at Semifonte. At this price impossible to beat !
