We booked a superior room with a balcony in the Cisterna Hotel and spent an unforgettable weekend in San Gimignano and surroundings. Everything in the hotel was great: friendly staff, our little dog was very well received, the room offered all we needed (cleanliness, comfortable bed, nice and spacious bathroom) and the breakfast buffet was okay. The only negative point:... More

Right on the main square, great views from both our room and the restaurant/breakfast room. very solid value. They have a nice cafe right on the square. Make sure you get a room with view of the countryside! Also, they do offer shuttle service from the parking lots but you MUST arrange this before arrival. Definitely recommend this as finding...

Great location in the main square. Tiny elevator that does not service all rooms given the various sub - levels - required climbing some steps with bags. We asked for the country view room - the balcony was right next to a roof of another building with the Tuscan countryside in the distance. The Wi-Fi in our room was very... More

We loved people watching from the balcony of our room with a glass of wine over the main square. €28 per night to sit on only 1 of 2 balconies that overlooks the square is a must. We almost saved this on parking by leaving our car in car park 1 (furthest away) for €6 per day rather than the... More

I love San Gimignano, getting to stay there within the city walls at such a quaint place was a wonderful experience! The hotel is in a great location, right on the main square so there is always activity right outside your doorstep, including live music in the evenings. The views of the Tuscan hills on the backside are breathtaking! The... More

What a charming hotel! With outstanding views of the beautiful surrounding Tuscan countryside, the front opens into San Gimignano's central piazza, which dates back to medieval times. The room was comfortable and well appointed. The restaurant was very good, with large picture windows offering panoramic vistas of the area.
