Loving Life in San Gimignano
I was thoroughly enthralled by both this hotel and San Gimignano. I want to go there repeatedly! It's possible to drive into the Piazza for drop off of luggage and then go to Parking Area 2 for the closest parking. This was a marvelous property right in the center of everything. Be sure to ask for a room that opens on the terrace.

Our room was small and dated (typical for a European hotel) but the bed was really comfortable! You can't beat the location. Everything is beautiful and walkable.

Just Ok
La Cisterna was just ok. For the money it seems the rooms should have been a little nicer. But, the breakfast was good with a nice view over the Tuscan countryside. Also, I appreciated that they stocked the mini fridge with water. It's been super hot in Italy this August so it was nice to have the water on hand. Location to the main Piazza was excellent as well.

Stuck in time
My room reminded me of the $5 a night on the early 1960s. Really dated
