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...

We have stayed at La Cisterna Hotel in San Gimignano 5 times and each time we have been extremely pleased with the hotel and especially with the staff. From the management at the reception desk (Silvio, Christiana, Alessio, Silvia and Paola), to the breakfast room staff and the housekeeping staff, all we come in contact with are friendly, courteous, and...

It is difficult to say exactly how this hotel disappointed us - it's just that the whole place needs a makeover. Our room seemed like it was a dungeon - our dinner was good but the breakfast lacked a lot. In particular there was a fantastic Italian high spec coffee machine lying dormant in the corner (whilst a staff member...

We were on a tour of the Chianti Region for the day and whilst everyone else went to stand in line for their free ice cream we took the advantage of a quiet respite and went for a coffee. If the coffee is anything to go by then the hotel has nothing to worry about. It was the best coffee...

A charming hotel in the famous Piazza Cisterna. Our room had a communal terrace shared with three other rooms but still with privacy and the rural Tuscan countryside view from it was breathtaking. All staff in the hotel are very friendly and helpful. I would love to visit and stay again.

You will tour Europe to find a better location without success. The hotel is great, rooms comfortable some with fantastic views. Breakfast could be better, the external restaurant was good and allows you to enjoy the square throughout the meal.
