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

This was a very nice place, the rooms were very nice and clean. The staff was little stand offish, except for one guy he was very friendly...the breakfast was good and the view was better. We ate at the restaurant the night we got there, it was kind of expensive and not all that great. Overall a real nice place... 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

Dear LorikAtlanta, thank you for your review. It's a really pleasure to know that you enjoyed staying to Hotel La Cisterna to be closer to shops and Restaurants, in fact we are in the center of the town and in 3 minutes walking you reach: the City hall, the Civic Museum, the Torre Grossa, the Basilica di Santa Maria Assunta...

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. The place is clean and the rooms are good in size.... More

We were pleased to spend six night in this delightful place in the heart of Tuscany. The staff is friendly, the rooms are unique, and the location is superb. The building is most interesting -- your room may be up, over, and down. When you reach it, the view of the countryside is amazing. The shuttered windows are practical and... More

We stayed at this hotel recently and had a lovely time. It is a little tricky getting to the front of the hotel to unload luggage since it fronts on the main square of San Gimignano.We had directions, but for us who are used to wide open spaces, it was a bit stressful driving up those narrow streets. Staff were... More

Great hotel in San Gimignano. The views from the diningroom of the Tuscan countryside are picture postcard perfect. Remember to bag a table at the windows which open up. Excellent table for breakfast and friendly, helpful front desk staff. Although we did not have a room with a view - ask for one - it didnt matter as we were... More

Loved staying in this hotel for the view of the countryside. Had a balcony room which opened out so we could see not only all the towers of the city but the countryside below us. Room was nice, but the view was outstanding. Hotel is located in the center of the square across from the cistern, making it even better.... More
