We spent two nights at La Cisterna Hotel in San Gimignano in October 2013. We were pleasantly surprised by the amazing location right on the main plaza in the center of the walled city. We got a relatively inexpensive rate for our room (compared to other high rates we saw while shopping around) so didn't think the room would be... More

The hotel is simple but very good. Clean, cozy, great breakfast, friendly staff. The location is absolutely perfect!!!! And sleeping in a medieval castle is a dream! I do certainly recommend. But’s a little bit tricky to get in San Gimignano without a car. Although it’s a beautiful city that deserves a visit!

My husband and I have been to San Gimignano several times, but this is the first time we have stayed at La Cisterna. We had a room with a balcony - and a fantastic view of Tuscany. We were celebrating our 50th wedding anniversary - and what a treat! A wonderful string trio (street musicians - very talented musicians) set... More

On our family vacation, my FiL selected this spot because of the amazing view of the valley available outside the windows. Unfortunately, of all the places we ate at during our Tuscan vacation, this was our least favorite. The food was acceptable, not memorable at all.

My husband and I recently stayed at La Cisterna Hotel in San Gimignano, Italy. We loved this place! Our room with on suite bath was spacious and comfortable. The staff was friendly and helpful. The location couldn't be better, it is right in the main town square! The included breakfast offered a lot of delicious choices and the breakfast room... More

Staying overnight (2 nights) in the heart of San Gimignano was a wonderful experience--I would definitely stay here again! Two highlights or reasons we especially loved staying here were one, enjoying the peace and romance of Piazza del Cisterna at night after the tourists crowds were gone, and two, the view from our breakfast table. We had a nice room... More

I spent 3 nights at this hotel as part of a tour. The room was a decent size in the back of the hotel with one window and no view. The air conditioning was weak. A free continental breakfast was offered in the restaurant that had spectacular views of the countryside and rooftops. Located on the piazza, there was always... More

This is a wonderful hotel to stay in. It is situated right on the piazza. The hotel is lovely and clean. With a bar and restaurant directly in front you can sit and people watch for hours. The breakfast is typically Italian and the breakfast room has the most beautiful views over the surrounding valleys. What a way to start... More

We have had rooms with balconies on both sides of this hotel. Both were great, for different reasons. The balcony on the rear was quieter, with the most serene view of the Tuscan countryside I have seen. The balcony on the piazza side invited us into the happy lives of the people visiting San G and some great people-watching. The... More

Had a great stay at La Cisterna. We parked our car at the lot just outside the main gates of town and wheeled our suitcases up the steep cobbled street to the hotel which right on the centre square. We had wanted to avoid driving into the town and the trek up was not arduous. The room was great. Good... More
