A local friend recommended this hotel after the farmstay we had booked the night before phoned the next morning to say they could not accept our reservation as clients from Booking.com took precedence!! At the end though we felt we had more advantages staying at San Claudio because of its proximity to Macerata and the freeway. The hotel opened for business in 2000 after restoration, and is part of the Abbey of San Claudio complex. It is reached via an impressive avenue of cypress trees with fields of cereals and vegetables on either side giving a feeling of being in the countryside. There is secure parking for hotel patrons. We had a corner room which was fairly quiet, we could hear the pizzeria/bar located across the laneway when we had our window open, but once closed all was fine. The room featured wooden beams, air conditioning, safe box, hairdryer and TV. The only negative detail was that the outside door handle fitting was attached too closely to the edge of the door, resulting in us nearly catching our fingers when closing the door behind us. There is a lift, handy for luggage. Guests can enjoy the lounge area furnished in leather settees, TV and books.
Buffet breakfast included cereals, fruit juices, mineral water, yoghurt, pastries, cakes, cheese and small goods (these were average), toaster and choice of cappuccino, espresso or tea. There is a small terrace with seating outside, and we enjoyed watching two cats frolic in the garden beds whilst having our breakfast. Being a 3 star hotel, we can say it is very good value and we can certainly recommend it.
The concierge booked a restaurant in Macerata for us and explained how to arrive and park.
We dined the first night in the hotel restaurant (under separate management) and we hope to write a proper review with photos. It was excellent.
We hope to return to Macerata during the concert season at the Sferisterio, the famous arena located in the old part of the town.
