Lisbon, Portugal
Reviewed 20 December 2016

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.

Located in the center of town this gem of a hotel is a great place to stay. The room was nicely appointed. The view from our room was breathtaking as is the view from the dining room. The hotel accommodations are superb.

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...

First: Without a car it is a bit more difficult to reach San Gimignano. Not impossible, as we can attest but it is a bit more off the beaten path. Second: IT IS SO WORTH IT! We stayed at La Cisterna our room was lovely, the bathroom a bit on the small size but serviceable. The breakfast was self service...

Well, maybe not a surprise, but there is always this sense of apprehension when you book a hotel based on reviews. However La Cisterna certainly lived up to expectations. We had one of the rooms with a terrace overlooking the countryside. The view was magnificent. These rooms a are little more pricey but well worth it. The room was very...

We have spent the night in this wonderful old walled city a couple of times and stayed at the La Cisterna both times.

If you really are looking for a feel and sense of experiencing Tuscany as you expect it, then this is the hotel and city to start in for a quaint and loving entry into their beloved area. The room was amazing and the staff couldn't have been friendlier. Will definitely stay there on our next trip back. All around great.

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.
