I liked this hotel so well I booked here again. For starters, it is a 3 minute walk from the bus terminal. Our room was on the 3rd floor overlooking the soccer field and we were situated in what I think was an ideal locale. In 5-10 minutes, we could be at the main piazza, site of the famous il Palio (which I am attending this summer). But we took two day trips and so our guide could park right in front of the hotel to pick us (cars are not allowed in most of Siena. We were also located about 100' from Basilca San Domenico (see my review) and the home of Saint Catherine was a 3 minute walk. The staff were very helpful and the breakfast among the best in our travels. If you were lucky, you could dine on the terrace though it filled up rather quickly. We had heard that this hotel was noisy and you could hear carousing at night. Those reviews recommended a room in the back which we requested and received. Those same reviews indicated the noise came from bar activity and even though we came in at all hours, I never detected such. And I honestly looked for it. Our room was simply appointed but very nice and clean with a small frig and nice view. The internet did not always work reliably but it was tolerable. The winding staircase up was a hike (they had an elevator) but worth it because it was an architectural work of art that just invited you up and down it. I would, highly, highly, highly recommend this hotel when traveling to Siena.

Room Tip: Although we did not notice the noise, request a room in the back overlooking the futbol field.

This hotel was a good value in Siena. Our room was clean, spacious, and well maintained. The staff was friendly and helpful. The hotel does not have its own parking, as parking is very scarce in Siena. The staff can direct you to a nearby parking lot where there is no charge. We enjoyed the breakfast, although the push button coffee dispenser can get a little jammed up when there are lots of people trying to get kick-started for the day. It was a great place to stay and we would go back.

We stayed at the Chiusarelli for several days in the winter and I would stay here again. It is really conveniently located, not at all far from the "center" of things. Walking distance to everything (with lots of steep climbs...) The hotel is charming, lots of marble inside, old furnishings, etc. We had a good-sized triple room -- a queen and a single bed -- facing the street, beds on the firm side, a large bathroom with shower/bath. Comfortable. Breakfast was ample: a lot of nice fresh fruit on offer, ham, cheese, hard-boiled eggs, yogurts, etc. I can't comment on noise or lack of breakfast offerings because off-season, it was quiet and large groups of visitors were absent. The staff were very helpful and overall, we had a great visit.

We try to stay in nicer hotels at the end of our trips as a treat and although this was one of the more expensive three-star hotels, it was disappointing. The location was very good and we could walk everywhere, but the hotel or at least our room was tired looking with had no conveniences like a dresser or even a luggage rack, no shampoo, shower gel or lotion aside from some little packets of combination shampoo,conditioner and body wash. The bed was firm which we prefer over soft, but there was no top sheet over the blanket and only one extra pillow for the three of us. The bathroom was clean and although there was a shower, there was no shower curtain or door so whenever one of us showered, the floor was soaked. We had to use the towels to clean up the wet floor. I'm wondering if others had to do the same and that would explain why the towels didn't look very clean. The front desk staff was very nice and helped us get our bags to our third floor room and we were grateful for that since there was no elevator. I know it was an old villa, but I don't think it was stated that there was no elevator in the description. I hope that there will be some restoration to this lovely place in the future, but as is, I don't think I would recommend it to a friend.

The hotel is in a great location and the staff were extremely helpful. The room we stayed in was average with a view over the football stadium. Not what we expected nor wanted. Our disappointment was breakfast. By the time we arrived for breakfast the hordes from the tourist bus had cleaned out the food leaving us with very little choices.

We spent five nights here in April. We were four - myself, my husband and my two children. We had a king size bed plus two single beds. One of the beds was in a different room, although it was open to our room and had its own TV. The room was spacious and had a TV, although like so many Italian hotels, there was no extra chair to sit on. The bathroom was adequate but not very new. The shower, like all hotels in Italy, was quite small, but the water pressure was excellent and the hot water was plentiful. The location of the hotel is excellent - close to the center but not in the middle of all the activity. We could walk everywhere in the city. There are both free and paid parking lots nearby. The staff is excellent - so friendly and English speaking if need be. The restaurant was on the bottom floor of the building and it serves a very nice, cold breakfast: yogurt, cold cuts, cereal, rolls, fruit, etc. We would definitely stay there again and heartily recommend it.

Room Tip: Our room was on the back of the building and we were able to hear the church bells in the morning, b...

The room was comfy and the location for walking into old Siema is hard to beat. Our room had a wrap around balcony on the rear of the building which afforded a view of one end of the soccer field in the local stadium right behind the hotel. There was a match on the afternoon we arrived which made getting our rented car to the hotel a challenge as the local police had blocked off several streets near the stadium, requiring us to backtrack and try three different routes to get I front of the hotel. So the lesson learned was arrive earlier on game days.
