La Cisterna Hotel was recommended to us by friends,and we were delighted with every aspect of this lovely hotel. Our room was very spacious, with a large comfortable bed and an extra large bathroom. Drapes covered the tall ten foot window which when drawn aside revealed a lovely little deck with table and chairs and the most magnificent view of... More

We love this hilltop city, and are not alone: it is packed in the summer, but off season retains its massive charm. The staff is helpful and friendly, and we particularly appreciated - after sleeping in way past the breakfast hour - that the kitchen staff helped pull together a satisfying meal for us. The view from the dining room... More

Located in Piazza Della Cisterna, La Cisterna Hotel is in the heart of the piazza and the town. For the driving articulate (better in a small to medium car during the early morning or late afternoon particularly outside of the summer period) you can drive into the town via Porta Quercacchio turning right at Via San Giovani and proceeding directly...

We arrived after a long journey and were simply bowled over by the location and the beauty of SG. Having watched 'tea with Mussolini' the night before, we were thrilled to be staying in this hotel. Rooms clean, staff friendly, breakfast good. A great way to start a cycle tour of Tuscany.

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.
