Reviewed 7 July 2014

We walked from Montelpulciano to Chiusi and were using this as an overnight stop before we caught the train to Siena,we received a warm welcome,our room was very clean,with a good sized bathroom and everything we needed

The Hotel is a few minutes walk into the town,where there are plenty of restaurants and bars,plus a nice square which has a really nice local feel to it

Worth noting it is 3 to 4 kms from the railway staiton a 10 euro taxi or a 30 minutes walk assuming you get a taxu uphill and walk down,there are also buses

Couple in our 60's stayed 5 nights and enjoyed the time there. Hotel about 3km from train station and an easy walk back down to the station. Best to get bus back up the hill for 1.10 euro, tickets in station buffet. Small town with great views especially up back street of sunsets. Good central location to get bus/train to Siena, Montepulciano, Orvietto or Arezzo amongst others. Owners very helpful with any needs. Coffee and tea making facilities available but needs a small fridge in room for drinks in the summer heat.

Room Tip: There are three levels but no lift so easier to get the first floor unit.

There is not a lot of choice of accomodation in the hill town of Chiusi for travellers without a car. This hotel was very comfortable and convenient for our three night stay. Clean, with comfortable twin beds and ensuite bathroom. We did not have a problem communicating with the owners even though our Italian and their English was minimal.They provided us with all we required but we didn't see them very much. It was good value but breakfast was not provided. We bought that about 50 metres away.

Located a few kilometers from the train station (e.g. a taxi ride away), in the ancient village part of Chiusi, it was an ideal one-night spot for us. Our light-yellow room with good views was on the third floor (I don't believe there is an elevator), and while not spacious, was adequate, outfitted with hangers, bedside tables and (I think) reading lamps and had minimal "geegaw" decorating things.

The owners were available, helpful and pleasant.....made our dinner reservations in the La Solita Zuppa restaurant next door. Turned out to be a memorable meal of good food and wines (though you should read the restaurant reviews if you're thinking of going there because they are mixed, but accurate).

We really enjoyed the Etruscan Museum and city park with E. ruins, walking around this peaceful village and sitting outside for coffee or beer, etc. at the central square "bar" where everyone seems to gather to visit with their neighbors.

After booking rooms at this hotel, I tried multiple times to contact them to confirm the reservation. Expedia also tried multiple times for me. They refused to respond to emails and phone calls. Finally, the Expedia rep told me to stop trying, find a new place and stop payment on my credit card - which I did. We stayed at the Borgo Dolciano for half the price, great service and clean rooms.

If a client book through Expedia booking is automatically confirmed, there is no need to reconfirm by phone.
Unfortunately, not showing up at the check in and not having given notice, he had to pay for the room.

Se un cliente prenota tramite Expedia la prenotazione è automaticamente confermata, non c'è bisogno di riconfermarla telefonicamente.
Purtroppo non presentandosi al chek in e non avendo dato disdetta, ha dovuto pagare la camera

Cycled with Bike Team Keymove, through Tuscany. This was one of the hotels we stayed at. It was well located, clean and quiet. We had a nice room with a view and the staff were very nice.

We stayed here for four nights for a friends wedding. Our room (22) was a nice size, bright and clean, good comfortable furnature and a nice wetroom style bathroom.
Pro's are Price, Location, and very clean.
Con's are that the owner's accomidation is on the second floor and he is a smoker. unfortunatly that carrys into the hall and is off putting when you step out of the room... Breakfast is not included, but that is fine as there is a lovely cafe just around the corner.

I would return here again but maybe to the first or third floor
