10/10 Exceptional

A short walk from the Duomo and El Campo, Il Chiostro Hotel (The Cloisters) is an oasis of calm in the busy city of Siena. The ancient building is set in a cloistered garden where drinks and snacks are served in the cool of the evening, often by Adil who takes personal pride in the premises, the kitchen and the garden. Breakfast is full of variety and the fruit is absolutely fresh and hand-cut. Special requests, such as a very long cappuccino, are not only served with a smile by Fatima but remembered the next morning. Some of the breakfast tables are next to large windows that can be thrown open to enjoy the fresh air and stunning views of the countryside around Siena. The hard-working staff of Il Chiostro quickly felt like family. A team works hard at Reception and we are very grateful to Marta, Matteo and Rachele for their cheerful responses to all our requests. Siena is a city built on hills and not suitable for people with impaired mobility. There is hardly a level surface beyond the Campo and church interiors. Similarly, Il Chiostro requires some mobility. There are some rooms at ground level and an Albatross stair lift to the first floor. After that you’re on your own. The stone staircase is a workout and worn in places by centuries of nuns making their daily observances. If you enjoy a sense of history, Il Chiostro is for you. If you prefer modern, minimalist accommodation, look elsewhere. Our heartfelt thanks to everyone at Il Chiostro! 🙏

4/10 Fair

Despite having an interesting appeal of an old building, the place lacks care, charm and pride by its owners. The surroundings reinforce that same feeling of lack of care and sloppyness. Siena is a big dirty tourist trap and this hotel is no exception.

8/10 Very good

Great Location, just inside Porto San Marco and easy walk to Duomo and the main square. Breakfast buffet was outstanding. Reasonably priced. One negative…our room had an odd smell…mildew/locker room…however, room was clean and comfortable. Great staff!

8/10 Very good

We enjoyed the historic aspect of staying in an ancient convent. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was good and the view from breakfast area is absolutely beautiful. There was bar service in the courtyard in the evenings which looked great...but we didn't take advantage of this. Our room was very spacious, the a/c really couldn't keep it cool. The staff was very attentive to the issue but it was never resolved. They did end up bringing us a fan which we really appreciated. The location is great...short walk to shopping, restaurants, the square. There is a great little laundry facility very close was laundry day for us!
