This is the place to stay for your San Gimignano experience. The location is excellent and the views from both the rooms and restaurant are wonderful. The La Cisterna is a quiet hotel. You will be able to relax here.

Excellent service and very clean
The main thing to realize is this hotel is 12 km from San Gimignano if you are planning a stay there. I was disappointed to find I had to drive 34 km round trip each day to my event near the city. And gas is very expensive in Italy (75 USD to fill a tiny Fiat) I drove around the small quaint city of SG for an hour looking for this place and asking people before finally having someone call and find it was another 12 km down the road. Most Italians do not speak English very well but nevertheless they are eager to help..........in Italian with hand motions!.
However, I was treated to a superb breakfast each morning with cappuccino, fresh fruit and pastries, also various shaved meats and an assortment of cheeses and bread. I wish I could have gotten up an hour earlier each day just to enjoy it, but I had to adjust to jet lag and include travel time so some mornings I just had to bag it. What a shame!
The beds could use a mattress pad as mine was a bit stiff, but the room was always clean and the place was spotless. Nestled in a very tiny town called Castillo de San Gimignana.
Nice hotel with only short walk into town. Lovely pool area, great breakfast on terrace overlooking pool. Bedrooms smallish but very quiet at night. Staff always pleasant and helpful. Free car parking limited but not a problem for us. Great place to chill out and do very little, but also good base for visiting Tuscany sights.

Medieval 'skyscrapers' make this Etruscan town completely unforgettable. Just 14 towers survive from over 70 14th-century versions built to proclaim the power and wealth of its inhabitants. Revived by wine and tourism, the city is rich and crowded again, but off-season, the backstreets are quiet enough to enchant. Besides the towers, star sights are the frescoed cathedral and the Palazzo del Popolo with its museum and art gallery.
