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

Dear JH3traveler, Thank you very much for you lovely comment and the great score! Sorry for the noise that comes from the square. Sometimes people's voices and songs sung sitting on the well are nice, but certainly the sound of the sweeper is less romantic! We send you all our best regards and we hope to have you as our...

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.

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. Driving up through the city streets to drop off luggage feels very strange since so few cars are allowed into the village streets, but glad we could do it. We were... More
