We love this hilltop city, and are not alone: it is packed in the summer, but off season retains its massive charm. The staff is helpful and friendly, and we particularly appreciated - after sleeping in way past the breakfast hour - that the kitchen staff helped pull together a satisfying meal for us. The view from the dining room... More

Located in Piazza Della Cisterna, La Cisterna Hotel is in the heart of the piazza and the town. For the driving articulate (better in a small to medium car during the early morning or late afternoon particularly outside of the summer period) you can drive into the town via Porta Quercacchio turning right at Via San Giovani and proceeding directly...

We arrived after a long journey and were simply bowled over by the location and the beauty of SG. Having watched 'tea with Mussolini' the night before, we were thrilled to be staying in this hotel. Rooms clean, staff friendly, breakfast good. A great way to start a cycle tour of Tuscany.

A wonderful place to stay in a very central location, close to all the main attractions and a great base for the surrounding area. The rooms are affordable, clean and comfy, breakfast is provided and the staff were friendly and helpful. Thank you

Loved La Cisterna Hotel and the fantastic location. What can be better than being in a medieval town, surrounded by the ancient walls of the city, looking around and every single building is historical. Now add to that, that one can go out the front door of the hotel, walk across the street, buy a gelato from the world champion... More

We stayed at la Cisterna as part of our visit to Italy. The hotel is situated in the middle of San Gimignano in the middle of a piazza with plenty of shops and restaurants. The rooms are pretty basic and in need of a little tlc. The bathroom in particular needs some updating as the shower floods the bathroom floor... More

A decent hotel, typical of many we stayed at in italy at this price point with a fair breakfast offering right in the centre of San Gimignano. The staff are helpful but I would look elsewhere for dinner and the wifi is poor. Could use a spruce up here and there but reasonable for the price. No drinks facilities in... More

We stayed one night in this hotel, during our tuscan bike tour. The location is just perfect- facing the piazza in the center of the old town on one side while on the other side (can be seen from the restaurant) you get the amazing views of tuscan hills.
