We spent 3 nights here and we were impressed. The location was fantastic, the staff friendly and very helpful.
We had a room over the square which we found fun. Even though the square was busy, the shutters and windows were efficient in blocking out almost all of the noise. There was a bit of a hum but we live in the city and found this a home comfort.
Great stay!

You simply have to visit San Gimignano and you simply have to stay at the La Cisterna when in Tuscany. We stayed in a luxury double room with a view over the valley and the Tuscan countryside. Absolutely Awesome! The room and bathroom was HUGE and the balcony was an absolute delight. There is no better place to have a glass of wine and some local produce for a romantic picnic dinner than your own balcony. The location of the hotel could not be better. You are right in the middle of everything. Breakfast was average and the staff was fairly helpful and friendly.

Room Tip: Opt for a room with a view and a balcony - it is worth it!

When booking our accommodation here we opted for a room without a view as we were on a budget. In hindsight we wished we had the view! The hotel is located in a great spot, however that is the most complimentary thing I can say. The breakfast that was included finishes quite early (9.30am). The staff were not outright rude but not helpful either, and seemed to be using Facebook quite a lot when people were standing at the desk. The bed was average and they only give you one pillow. The restaurant is expensive compared to others in town, but does have a spectacular view. The shower was very very small.
All in all it was clean and tidy but I expected better for the price.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a view. It costs extra but worth it!

We had a room on the second floor with a great view. The room was so-so. Mattress lumpy, fridge not working, Airconditioning desperately trying to work. Reception staff just this side of surly. They need to try harder.

Room Tip: Rooms facing the square may be noisy until late

This hotel was built in the 14th C, but it has modern amenities. The view was amazing and can be seen from the restaurant and from most rooms. It is right in the middle of town, but don't worry about noise. My daughter and I decided to take a walk and to out delight, a market had been set up! This was on a Tuesday, but If you want to go to a market, you might want to check the market day as I had heard it was on Thursday. We ate at the hotel on the main plaza. It was fun watching the people. Two musicians were playing music nearby. I would definitely go back!!!!

Room Tip: Ask for a balcony.

You can't get a better location in this town. The hotel is directly on the main plaza and easy walking distance to everywhere. The room was neat and clean however not all the rooms have a view particularly the lower priced rooms. If you want a view pay the extra for a room upgrade. The staff were ok.
