These rooms have the most spectacular views from the balconies. This place was so perfect that we didn't want to leave. The town is full of beautiful scenery and fantastic wine! The hotel is located in the heart of this medieval town. The rooms are spacious and comfortable and breakfast was lovely. The bathroom had been refurbished and was so... More

The property is located within the heart of charming San Gimignano. It's conveniently located near shops, restaurants and points of interest. The room was clean and roomy and it's very quiet at night. The breakfast included is delicious only to be outdone by the views from the restaurant. I highly recommend this hotel.

We upgraded to the superior room with balcony. The balcony was a large terrace shared by 4 rooms. We were able to sit out with friends, enjoy the evening view, and sample local food and wine. The room itself had a large modern bathroom, though with a shower not a bath. Bed was comfortable, and the room quiet. The hotel... More

This was our second stay at La Cisterna. The location is perfect and a great place to spend your evenings walking, eating and drinking your through this charming town. I would suggest asking for a room in the back of the hotel and the views are nothing short of spectacular. We ended every evening with a glass of wine on... More

We booked a room at La Cisterna Hotel during our honeymoon trip to Italy to enjoy the quiet "after hours" of San Gimignano and were very glad we did. Our room was perfect, very spacious with a patio looking out over one of the most scenic/AMAZING Tuscan hillside views. In fact, tourists would come to the wall just below the... More

We chose a Superior room with balcony & had an amazing view! Our room was simply furnished but was spacious & very clean. Breakfast was self-serve, but was fresh & items were replenished. Great location in San Gimignano, which is best appreciated at night after the busloads of tourists leave!

We enjoyed our stay even though our room windows faced the next door building. It was a quiet room however, we could smell fumes coming from the hotel's restaurant, if we left our windows open. Breakfast was served upstairs with beautiful views of the landscape. With an advanced reservation, we were picked up from one of the parking lots around... More

Located in the heart of the old city this hotel has amazingly good staff, quality rooms and excellent service. The view from some of the rooms is textbook spectacular looking over the Tuscany valleys. The entire center of the walled city is available simply by walking out the front door into the main courtyard.

We visited this hotel as part of a Tuscany hiking trip organized by Sherpa Expeditions. Our room was at the back of the hotel, just above a square where people gathered to enjoy the view over the countryside. During the day we could hear them talking but as the sun set, the people dissipated. We certainly enjoyed our view. The... More
