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

Stayed here 3 nights in May and had a wonderful time. The location of the hotel could not be better. During the day, the town fills up with tourists. They thin out after 7PM and my the time we went to bed we could leave our windows open and it was completely silent. Our room was on the second floor... More

We stayed in San Gimignano for two nights and really enjoyed our stay at La Cisterna. It is in the heart of all the action: across from the duomo, next to the best gelato place in the world, around lots of museums, and of course situated right in the heart of the square. At night there was live music and... More

We experienced the best time at this hotel. We had a room on 2nd floor with large balcony which is shared by adjoining rooms overlooking the tiled rooftops of San Gimiagnano and Tuscany countryside. The bathroom was fine and we had a luggage rack for case. You get access to the beautiful fresh air by opening the glass doors and... More

This hotel is located on the main town square. The interior is modern and spacious. The restaurant is large and can easily accommodate the tour groups that seem to favor it. Most of the town attractions are a few minutes walk away at most.
