The hotel has a perfect location, right in the middle of the city on the main square. We had a room with terrace and the view from there is superb! The room was very clean. The breakfast is good. If you come by car you better move your car to the number 1 parking lot, it is cheaper the daily...

It was almost perfect! I just expected a better breakfast and people at the reception could be a little more opened! But it is a great hotel, and the view is breathtaking! I really recommended it to everyone that goes to San Gimogniano

This is a nice hotel in the main square of San Gimignano! The location is just perfect to explore this little beautiful village by walk. We had only BB and had our breakfast in spacious restaurant with an amazing view of Tuscany. We have parked our car just infront of the entrance so there was no problem with that. The...

La Cisterna is located in the heart of San Gimignano, and relaxing and people watching from their piazza seating was relaxing after biking into the town. Our room was spacious, and the view overlooking Tuscany was picture perfect!

An amazing location with superb views from the restaurant of the tuscan countryside. You go to this hotel for the location. Getting to it by car maybe a little tricky as it is right in the centre of town but you cant beat the location. Service is good and rooms are a bit old and dated but very clean and...

San Gimignano has to be one of the most picturesque villages I have ever seen. Surrounded by breathtaking countryside. The hotel was in a good position, although parking was a problem, we had to leave the car outside the centre and pay for parking. Most of the staff were very helpful, one receptionist was a misery. The rooms were ok,...

Easy to find and in the heart of everything. Restaurant was really good and breakfast was plentiful. Don't be fooled you can't use the terrace unless you have booked one of the rooms on the top floor.

My boyfriend and I booked a room with a balcony and a view of the countryside. We were visiting friends in the area and wanted a base in close proximity. It is in the centre of San Gimignano, so great for exploring the small walled medieval city. The room itself was on the second floor and on the small side...

This hotel is located right in the main square of San Gimignano. It is older but very well kept up. The rooms are spacious and clean. If you upgrade to deluxe double with balcony, you will have a room that share a huge balcony with about 4 other rooms. However, when we went out on the balcony, there was no...

We had a large room with balcony overlooking the hills which meant a nice quiet stay and plenty of space. We had some minor issues with housekeeping and maintenance otherwise it would have been excellent rather than a very good rating. The restaurant is large but of average quality so best to try some of the local eateries close by....
