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. 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

A wonderful hotel in a magnificent town. We had a balcony room overlooking the Piazza for my birthday. Room was very comfortable and clean and an excellent breakfast in the dinning room with views over the Tuscan countryside . We arrived by car, parking and finding the hotel was made easy by a phone call to the hotel. You can... More

San Gimignano is the Jewel of Tuscany and this hotel is right in the heart of this Jewel! I have been to San Gimignano multiple times and have stayed in this very hotel every time. The location can not be better! You walk out of the hotel and you are right in the center of the main Piazza with the... More

We loved our second visit to La Cisterna. The location of the hotel is terrific and the views once you are in your room of the Tuscan Countryside are amazing. We look forward to our next visit there!!

The location is in a village at the top of a hill with a no car entry policy. We parked up in the most expensive one closest to the town and dragged our bags up the Main Street at night; not sure where we were going but you can't fault the hotel for being in the centre! The room had... More

Hotel Cisterna has the best location, right in the center of town. Stayed here one night and thoroughly enjoyed San Gimiginano. We got a room facing right out onto the piazza, a little noisy at night but not too bad, really enjoyed the view and people watching. Room was a good size, bathroom was a little on the tight side...

We did not have reservations and expected this hotel to be unaffordable being it was in the center of town. We were traveling with three other couples. They offered us the four terrace rooms with the most incredible views ever! The large, shared, terrace was perfect for our group. We were only there one night and wished we had more... More

Wen you visit San Gimignano, treat yourself to a valley view room at La Cisterna Hotel. This is the only place I will stay when visiting this mountain top village. Each morning you will wake up to the most magnificent views of the Tuscan hills that you can imagine. Rooms 59 and 60 have the best views. The rooms are... More

Excellent hotel. Location brilliant, staff friendly and helpful. Restaurant on top floor, good value set dinner and stunning views we booked a room with a balcony, only one down side room 503 is immediately below the kitchen on top floor so a little noisy early evening but this did not detract from stunning views from balcony. Take the offer of... More
