The staff is very friendly and eager to help you make the most of your time in the town. The hotel's location is excellent. It's about 5-8 minutes walking from the gate where most buses drop you off (Porta San Giovanni), and from one of the main car parks (no cars allowed into San Gimignano). The hotel is in the...

First: Without a car it is a bit more difficult to reach San Gimignano. Not impossible, as we can attest but it is a bit more off the beaten path. Second: IT IS SO WORTH IT! We stayed at La Cisterna our room was lovely, the bathroom a bit on the small size but serviceable. The breakfast was self service...

We stayed in Room 60 which had a balcony with panoramic views of the Tuscan Countryside, large room with a large comfortable bed, old style furniture, bathroom was spacious but showed signed of wear. I scored a 5 because of the location and the views and the staff were friendly. It's not the quietest as you can hear noise from...

Well, maybe not a surprise, but there is always this sense of apprehension when you book a hotel based on reviews. However La Cisterna certainly lived up to expectations. We had one of the rooms with a terrace overlooking the countryside. The view was magnificent. These rooms a are little more pricey but well worth it. The room was very...

We have spent the night in this wonderful old walled city a couple of times and stayed at the La Cisterna both times. Both times we have had very comfortable and clean rooms, the first time with a view of the beautiful Tuscan countryside and this time we had a view of the main square. A hearty breakfast buffet is...

This hotel is in the main square, (San Gimignano is a world Heritage site, so is busy with tourists from all over the word during the day, but at night it becomes much calmer.) I first had lunch here 35 years ago, and I had always promised a return trip, but this time I stayed at the Hotel, and I...

If you really are looking for a feel and sense of experiencing Tuscany as you expect it, then this is the hotel and city to start in for a quaint and loving entry into their beloved area. The room was amazing and the staff couldn't have been friendlier. Will definitely stay there on our next trip back. All around great.

We had been here once before, but we had not asked for a balcony location overlooking the valley. (The view overlooking the piazza would be useless!) Great views and a nice room. (This is a hill town however, so do not expect a five or four star hotel, although this one comes close to a four star.) It is located...
