Dating back to the 11th century, Leon Bianco is in Piazza della Cisterna, one of San Gimignano’s main squares. During the summer, breakfast is served on the quiet, relaxing terrace.

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
Some difficulties with wi-fi. Staff on the reception is not really attentive.

NO problems whatsoever...
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.
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!).
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.
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
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.
great location outstanding breakfast attentive staff
rooms were very unappealing bed were uncomfortable shower leaked all over bathroom
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.
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.
Location. View of San Gimignano and its countryside. Breakfast.
Windowless bathroom. Slow wifi
Great location in centre of town, not far from car parking. Rooms were a good size with fantastic views across the open countryside.
Can't beat the location....it's in the center of town, which makes it perfect for touring the city.
This is a lovely hotel in a great location - right on Piazza della Cisterna. We had a very nice room with a balcony overlooking the piazza, which we really enjoyed because we could sit there and watch all the activities and listen to the entertainment in the evenings. The views of the countryside from the dining room are stunning. The breakfast was nice - cold meat, cheese, eggs that you could boil if you wanted one, cereals, yogurt, fruit, breads, etc. Everything was very clean, and we would definitely stay there again, although next time in a room with a balcony overlooking the countryside.
Although BBC was listed on the TV, we couldn't get it. We mentioned it to three different people on reception. Each one said they would come and check it out, but no one ever did, and never mentioned it again. It would have been better if they had come straight out and said it just wasn't available - we would have understood - instead of promising something they didn't deliver. We would have liked to watch English language news, but no big deal if it wasn't available.
Hotel is in the centre of San Giminiano but is very old so rooms need updating a bit. Staff not very friendly. We were on the ground floor which was quite quiet so we slept well. The restaurant has stunning views and we had dinner there and the food was really good. Breakfast was really disappointing.
Staff not friendly Breakfast very disappointing Rooms need updating
Very warm facility in San Gimignano and close to everything to do in Tuscany. Very helpful staff and fluent in English. All of their dining recommendations were spot on. Will do again in the future!
San Gimignano is a small medieval town and certain days attract a multitude of cruise tours which clogs up the small town - but it is a great location if you want to experience the Chianti and Brunello wine regions.
Great location in a fantastic picturesque setting
Everything was great. Location was perfect.
Room had a balcony that we could enjoy a glass of wine before dinner overlooking vineyards and olive groves. Two of the mornings we saw a hot air balloon traveling over the misty morning clouds over countryside. Food and view from restaurant was spectacular!
We had to leave!
Fantastic location. Restaurants close by. Good spacious room.
Parking is a good walking distance away and no discount for short stay. EUR 20/day in P2 which is the closest parking area. You cook the breakfast egg yourself; so if you think the eggs in the basket are hard boiled you will be mistaken. :-) Another guest made the experience...
Location, location, location - on the main square of San Gimignano, with a great view over the hills of Tuscany! Breakfast great! Friendly, helpful staff. Allowed us to book in hours before normal time as our room was available.
No coffee facilities in room (or in hotel for guests), room on the small side.
Location, location, location. Excelent breakfast.
The hotel is slighly outdated. Other rooms sounds are heard.
Very central for all attractions. Our room had outstanding and stunning views over the countryside.
Inferior breakfast, little imagination.
Centrally located Clean hotel Nice view from room and reataurant
Hotel front desk not helpful. Specially the girl. Gave incorrect information and gave an attitude when asked a question. No help from the staff to locate the room which was not easily accessible with the luggage.
Great location & very helpful staff. We are walking the via francigena and the restaurant gave us a lovely pack lunch with fruit & pasta. They also, on request, gave us a very early breakfast at 6.15am. Wonderful staff. Thank you.
This was the most charming hotel ever...from the setting to the room decor to the balcony overlooking a gorgeous vista. The staff of this multi-generational family business could not have been nicer..so helpful with every thing we needed, and so thoughtful with making our stay a delight. We will definitely be back!
The hotel was very nice as the pictures show. The room was spacious and the view towards the countryside of Toscany was simply amazing. If you want to stay in San Gimignano, this is the place to go.
Nothing to complain about the hotel. We loved Toscany very much, but I would recommend to travel there in the off season and avoid San Gimignano and the most of the other medieval villages in the middle of August as it is completely full of tourists! This is not where you will discover "real" Italy.
