We stayed here for four days in September and it was lovely. The hotel itself was nice and the staff were polite and helpful. The most amazing thing though was the view from the balcony of our room. Absolutely stunning - actually brought a little tear to my eye when we opened the shutters on arrival. Only downsides were the... More

Our 5th time in this hotel. We even brought our 80 yrs old grandmother from Finland to see this unique place. She was treated very well and loved the hotel and San Gimignano. I love the view from our balcony over the Toscany hills. We admired the sunset with glass of wine. It brings me 800 years back in history.... More

La Cisterna Hotel was recommended to us by friends,and we were delighted with every aspect of this lovely hotel. Our room was very spacious, with a large comfortable bed and an extra large bathroom.

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.
