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.

We visited in San Gimignano in july 2015 with my husband. Hotel was very good located and hotel staff was very friendly. Our room was also very quiet. Maybe one negative thing was breakfast, there was not many fresh fruits or vegetables available in breakfast.

The hotel is fantastic: the views over the countryside from the terrace rooms are beautiful (it's the perfect place to enjoy a glass of wine at sunset); the room was lovely too; the location is as central as you could get, in the heart of the old town; and the staff were very helpful (printing us boarding passes, for instance)....

The staff was very friendly and did their upmost to give us a great stay. The breakfast was better than expected. We never used the restaurant in... More

Good value for you'r money, but no more than that. Graet location. The staff are very kind and helping where he could. The rooms are renovated (like new) and equipped with everything that is needed. Breakfast is average - minus.

We stayed five nights at La Cisterna in June. This location can't be beat. The views are fantastic. We had rooms with a balcony and it was worth it. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The breakfast was excellent. There are many excellent restaurants within walking distance. We will recommend this hotel to anyone vacationing in Tuscany.

Getting to the Hotel was a challenge. Once we were there- we never needed the car. We stayed 3 nights- I wish it had been longer. We had a balcony room- make sure to get one with a private balcony- the view was spectacular. Every tour sends people along a walkway that is right below the room- because the view... More

We so enjoyed this hotel in this magical Tuscan town. We were given a room right at the top of the tower with a window overlooking the main square and a balcony on the other side overlooking the rooftops and countryside. The room was large and the bathroom adequate. This hotel is not luxurious but it is charming, I probably... More
