The hotel's position is superb. Right in the centre of the town, but with wonderful views over the Tuscan countryside.

Its breakfast, restaurant facility with such a magnificent view. Its wonderful convenience right in the centre of a famous heritage town still operating even when full of tourists during the day was very emptied out at night and so was possible to experience the piazza which we overlooked as quietly resting and atmospheric......a little piece of history perhaps as it once was and to experience as a place people still lived in and loved.....especially during Easter...

Room was not as advertised on Booking. Was more like a cell.
Location, breakfast were excellent.

You have to park the car quite faraway from the center and pay extra fees but it worth it.
The view from restaurant,the food,perfect location.

Location, friendly staff, big room with own balcony looking to the splendid countryside. A bit old but charming--more than a 3-star hotel to us.

Fantastic location at the most beautiful piazza of the village. Room for 4 was spacious with separate room for the children and the breakfast was great with awesome view. Fair price for what was offered.

Everything from the location to the beautifully decorated rooms with the painted furniture, the views, the restaurant (its setting, food, staff). Location, of course, right on the town square. Management were delightful and most helpful.

Some difficulties with wi-fi. Staff on the reception is not really attentive.
Amazing view from the window! I stayed in the single room with the breathtaking view to the valley. Very nice furniture in the room. For 3*** breakfast is pretty rich. Nice staff in the restaurant

My single room was quite comfortable but very small with window opening on to inner stone wall. Specify "room with a view" when booking to avoid disappointment. Be prepared for a steep walk from extra-mural car parks (not hotel's fault!).
We had been to San Gimignano on previous holidays and I hoped we might one day return and stay at La Cisterna. Location is delightful, in a beautiful main square. The view from both breakfast room and restaurant is breathtakingly lovely, the archetypical Tuscan landscape. Good buffet breakfast. Superb restaurant, remarkably modest prices for this quality. Very welcoming and helpful reception and restaurant staff. City at its best in the evening when it has a lovely, quiet atmosphere. About 1 hour's drive to Florence, less to Siena.

Very enjoyable stay in a prime location right in the central piazza of San Gimignano. Very friendly staff, rooms are very clean and well maintained with a daily maid service.

The wifi was very slow and intermittent and no drinks facilities in the room. A fair hike from the parking to the hotel but you can drive to drop off bags.
We liked the location and the views, well worth the extra for the balcony and the breakfast was not too bad when compared with others

rooms were very unappealing bed were uncomfortable shower leaked all over bathroom
great location outstanding breakfast attentive staff

There is no parking within the town's walls so we had to park outside and walk to the hotel (first day you could drop off bags and then park) It was always uphill! Sometimes there was no parking space so one had to wait. I cannot say any more because I liked everything else . The town, the buildings and the people.
The location of the hotel in the square ensured that there was always something going on. Hotel had an area outside for eating.The staff were more than helpful and spoke good English.There are amazing views of the Tuscan scenery particularly from the restaurant. The room was a good size well equipped and comfortable.
