I stayed here in mid-July, in a single person room on the top floor. The room was clean, modern (yet very Italian), comfortable, with a wonderful little balcony. The view from the balcony was absolutely incredible. There was AC in the room, and windows, so options for getting the room to your preferred temperature. The bed was comfortable enough. The...

Very bad room, hidden and very dark with old furniture. When we asked the reception than we want to change our room they didn't ask us which is the reason we want to change our room! They proposed a room in the last floor without elevator from the 2nd to 3rd floor and also the story was the same as... More

My wife and I chose La Cisterna from a list of possible hotels supplied by Arianna & Friends who put together an itinerary for us when we visited in July, specifically to attend the annual Andrea Bocelli concert in Lajatico. What a good choice we made, there have been some negative reports concerning this hotel, but we cannot understand how... More

The hotel is centrally located right in the heart of San Gimignano. Our room's balcony overlooked the main piazza. The room itself was ok, a little dated, with small beds (2 singles). The bathroom was quite large and had a shower and tub combination. Overall a good place to put your feet up for a few days. The hotel has... More

We stayed for 3 nights and by the time we had been there for 2 hours, we felt as though we had had a weeks holiday. The staff were extremely helpful and friendly, most spoke better English than my Italian.. The room was spacious and clean with the most incredible view of the Tuscan countryside and a private balcony. Air... More

... of returning to San Gimignano every evening when the hordes of tourists leave the Medieval town and you can really enjoy the small town atmosphere. And then there was the movie Tea with Mussolini. .. I was lucky to have a pretty room with a balcony that offered a spectacular view of the Chianti. The view from the breakfast... More

We have stayed in this hotel for 6 nights. Rooms are spacious, comfortable and clean. Rooms are air conditioned. Continental breakfast offers a good selection. Reception staff are very helpful. Hotel even offers a shuttle bus to carry luggage from and to the hotel on the day of arrival and departure. I recommend.

Stayed for 3 nights. The first thing you notice is the amazing panoramic views of the San Gimignano surrounding country-side when you enter the room. We opted for the comfort panorama room which was worth it for the view but the room, bed and bathroom are rather tired. I appreciate antique furniture especially in an old building and town such...

Nothing beats the view from our terrace room. Updated and modern (unfortunately though with no sign of the historic charm) but clean with nice bathroom, great olive oil toiletries and beautiful custom linen towels. And that terrace! We visited the shops to get bread, cheeses, meats, wine, fruit and sweets for a wonderful little midday picnic overlooking the Tuscan hills... More
