Budget accommodation in San Gimignano and Verona

We have our accommodation worked out for most stops but can anyone give us some ideas on places to stay in these 2 towns? Many thanks.

We stayed here many years ago and loved it. The rates ares still quite reasonable.
Can't help you with Verona, as the place we stayed was not "budget" catagory.

You'll get more responses if you tell us what "budget" means.

Good point Jeanne. I guess I was hoping for a double less than 150euros. Possible?

Clicked on your link for La Cisterna and though I didn't have time to look long at it right now, I enjoyed the "Offerta last minute" - all the details in italiano, but that last minute standing out proudly! Will rank with OK and weekend I guess.

In San Gim you will have to decide if you want to stay inside the town our "out in the country". Country may be better if you have a car. I have not stayed at these but bookmarked them based on reviews and "budget". Good luck!

Thank you both. We will go there from Florence so I think we will have the car then.

Not sure what your budget is. We stayed at the Palazzo al Torrione on a quiet street just inside the walls of San Gimignano and thought it was great value for the money. We paid 78 Euros per night for double occupancy excluding breakfast. We had a nice room with a terrace appointed with all the comforts.

The parking was an extra 5 Euros per night arranged by the owner at a private lot. Public parking is quite expensive so this was a good savings. They showed us where to park and then drove us and our luggage back to the door of the hotel. When we left, they took us and our luggage back to our car as well. I was grateful that we didn't have to try and drive to the hotel to drop luggage...or the drag our luggage from a parking area outside the walls to where we were staying.

Two years ago we arrived in Verona without a hotel reservation and found a room at Hotel Valverde for 80 euros:

The hotel is well situated, clean, and best of all it had a wonderfully strong air conditioner. (We were there during a July heatwave.) We really enjoyed Verona, great ambiance in general. We saw Nabuuco performed at the Arena and it was THE best opera production we have ever seen.

Thanks Crazy Travel and Reen. Another place in San Gim to investigate and it was good to get a suggestion for Verona.

Peteralan - if you are not set on staying in a hotel, I can recommend an apartment called L'ospite di Federica de Rossi (http://www.lospite.com/).

She rents out several apartments in a building in a residential area of the city. They are clean, large and especially convenient if you are more than 2 people (you did not say).

There are fixings in the pantry of the complete kitchen and while you don't get the services of a hotel (like towel changes, etc.) it was a good option for us two years ago.

Thanks Flame. No we don't necessarily need a hotel and this place looks good too. There will be at least 3 of us, maybe 5 or 7! All adults so we could take over the place!We will definitely keep this in mind too. Thanks again.
