... 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

I'd like to give a better rating, since the front-of-house staff we interacted with were welcoming, helpful and pleasant. And the location in the heart of San Gimignano is very convenient (and the instructions to get there by car to drop off your bags are excellent, by the way). However, the room we booked ("Comfort Double with Panoramic View and... More

We really enjoyed our stay at La Cisterna and found it to be a very comfortable and charming hotel in which to stay during our two nights in San Gimignano. The front desk staff were extremely helpful in arranging winery tours, providing directions, etc. We went to the hotel restaurant, The Terrace, one evening and had the best meal we... More

We loved our balcony and it's view of Tuscany room 61! I can't emphasize enough what a joy it was to relax on that balcony overlooking the tuscany countryside and watch people strolling the panoramic walk just below our balcony. La Cisterna's location in Piaza Cisterna is perfect. The charming Piaza with it's world famous gelateria is the heart of... More

So here's a hotel that claims to be one of the best in town, but for that there is still much to be improved. Some rooms are in poor repair, but apparently others have been recently renovated and are in better condition. I unfortunately got one of the old ones, with a bathroom that urges for a complete makeover! The... More

We had a balcony room overlooking Tuscany which had been beautifully renovated. Definitely recommend paying a little more to get these rooms. The bed was comfortable and there was plenty of space. Good wi Fi and ample breakfast. Terrific base to visit the rest of Tuscany but you need to be fit if you are bringing your own car.

Good hotel right in the heart of a superb medival Tuscan hill top town. You can drive to the hotel to drop/pick up suitcases as parking is outside the town (some narrow streets though). Had a room with a superb view across the surrounding countryside - well worth getting as internal rooms didn't look so good. Breakfast reasonable. Best to... More
