We loved our stay in this beautiful hotel and our corner room with two windows had such an amazing view over the countryside. The hotel was easy to find and the staff very friendly and helpful. The buffet breakfast was tasty and the restaurant where it is served also looks over the countryside so you can enjoy the view.

We stayed for 3 nights in room 60 which had wonderful views over the Elsa valley. On our 2nd night we came back to our room to find a bottle of sparkling wine and a 'happy birthday' as they had noted from my husband's passport it was his 40th birthday. Unfortunately we had a problem with our hire car and... More

There are plenty of nice things about this hotel: great location on the central square, our room was adequate, and the price was reasonable. The reason we can't give this hotel a glowing review is the service. When we checked in, the employee at the desk was completely unhelpful and didn't give us much guidance regarding where to park our... More

La Cisterna was a great find. The staff was very accommodating to our needs and moved our rooms so our children's room would be near ours. We had an outstanding balcony view of the beautiful countryside and a quiet, air conditioned room. The breakfast room is truly a delight as was breakfast. The only room for improvement was the wifi... More

We got to see three rooms in total here. The first two on the ground floor and the third on the top floor. The first room was set up with separate twin beds, the second only had a tiny window high up which let in a sliver of natural light. For an extra €25 we upgraded to a balcony room... More

The La Cisterna Hotel is in the Piazza of San Gimignano,with an outside cafe for people watching and enjoying a glass of Rosa. We stayed for three nights and loved our view from our Balcony over the Tuscona country side. The breakfast was very disappointing,we didn't bother going on our last day,but the views from their are amazing. The service... More

The hotel is lovely and the restaurant where breakfast is served has a view to die for (as, I assume, do the rooms that overlook the back of the hotel). We were in a room overlooking the piazza. It's a wonderful view as well, but ended up being very noisy. We were there on a Saturday night so that didn't... More

If you want a room with a view, then this is the hotel for you. We asked to be booked into a room looking out over the valley and weren't disappointed. Hotel itself, was nice enough, rooms what you would expect, clean and comfortable. One thing to disappoint was breakfast, there was a buffet which was fine, but then if... More

We stayed here 15 years ago and loved it, and returned this year to find the same amazing views, the same terrific and filling breakfast, the same friendly service.
