“What a view!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 February 2012

We stayed in Il Chiostro Del Carmine in Siena for Valentine's Day during a week long trip to Italy. I can honestly say our room had the best view of the entire trip - absolutely stunning. Big double windows looking out onto the surrounding country side - could even watch the sunset.

Siena is a charming town with a much more laid back feel than the bigger cities we also visited on our trip. With that in mind this hotel fits the bill perfectly - maybe a little on the shabby chic / studenty side for some, but we thought it was lovely.

I would stress to those less abled that there didn't appear to be a lift, so that might be worth investigating further before booking.

When we checked out it did seem a bit hectic as several people were checking out at once. Apart from that the customer service from the staff we encountered was very good. Our request for a room with a view, as it was a special trip was most defiantly met.

I’d love to return in the summer and appreciate more of Il Chiostro and Siena.

Room Tip: Room 19 a deluxe double has amazing views!!

My wife and I recently stayed here for four nights and it is a wonderful place with very pleasant and accommodating staff. Our twin room was of good size and so was the bathroom. Breakfast is plentiful and again the staff does its job with a smile. The views from the breakfast room are splendid. Hotel is a few minutes walk from everywhere and is close to some very good eating places.
We had a very good stay here.

Our stay at Il Chiostro del Carmine was delightful. After arriving by bus, we walked about 15 minutes through the city centre to Il Chiostro. Upon arrival, Jean-Pierre --whose English is perfect-- informed us that we had been upgraded to deluxe accommodations. He made sure we knew our way around the premises, and that we could find our way around Siena. He proceeded to show us up the stairs to our spacious room. It was beautiful, and the bathroom was enormous!

After Jean-Pierre made sure we were comfortable, we ventured out for a moonlight walk around the city. We popped into an alimentari for some fresh local food and a bottle of wine which we brought back to the monastery. Jean-Pierre supplied the corkscrew. Our lovely room had a door that opened onto a rooftop patio, where we enjoyed our finds al fresco. Magical.

After a perfect night's sleep, we were treated to an expansive breakfast buffet in the sunlit dining room, with impeccable table service. Jean-Pierre was still on duty, and made sure that we had all of our questions answered, including advising us about travel options and providing clear maps, before we set out to enjoy Siena,

Il Chiostro is beautiful, and every staff member we encountered was charming and welcoming. We will be back!

I'll always remember the narrow, winding streets of Siena - one of my favorite stops in Italy. Hotel Il Chiostro del Carmine is ideally tucked among the streets, a short walk to the center of town. It is moderately priced and so much of the original charm has been preserved, making it a memorable place to stay. The rooms are clean, comfortable, and everything you need for a night or two. The staff is very helpful, breakfast is quite nice. I would definitely stay here again.

A beautiful building where we had a lovely spacious room - the people on reception were very helpful and we can highly recommend this hotel. Just on the outskirts of the city centre but that only means a 10-15 minute walk to the Duomo etc.
