Just home from a wonderful Easter weekend break in San Gimignano. The hotel is right in the centre of town and has beautiful views to the front and to the rear of the building. On the recommendation of my brother, who has stayed here many times, I booked a valley view room and can honestly say I have never had...

The hotel La Cisterns is quite outstanding. A perfect fifth generation family run hotel soon to celebrate its centenary. It is as far removed from the generic and formulaic hotels that increasingly seem to dominate our modern travel experiences. Instead it is a truly unique, historically significant and thoroughly friendly home from home in this lovely medieval town. Great staff,...

It was on Easter holliday, but hey, what do you expect as a host? Lots of tourists! So prepare with a lot of joy and patience. Be happy to be the one that is able to fulfill someone's dream! I still think the same about Tuscany, not about people!

A simple but clean hotel in the center of town. The staff was friendly and helpful. The breakfast room enjoys wonderful views of the town and its surroundings. The breakfast itself was one of the best we had in Europe in recent years. Recommended.

Reviewed 18 March 2017

This hotel couldn’t be better placed not only to explore the lovely hilltop village of San Gimignano but also as a base to explore the surrounding villages and countryside. The hotel is inside the walled, pedestrianised part of the village so parking is a few hundred metres from the door, but don’t let this stop you from booking. The hotel...

We stayed in La Cisterna for two nights in a room to the back of the hotel overlooking the Tuscan landscape the sunset and the sunrise, magnificent views in resume. It was a simple room, with very good sleeping quality, the breakfast in good and the location central in the small village.

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...
