Il Chiostro di Pienza
Ranked #5 of 7 Hotels in Pienza
Reviewed 13 June 2013

Great location if you're looking to spend some time in charming Pienza. Amazing sweeping views over the Val d'Orcia. Rooms were very large by European standards. Nothing really stood out to me here, but it is a perfectly fine hotel in the region.

Stayed 3 nights as part of a cycling tour. The hotel is a beautiful old building, nice and clean. Breakfast excellent. just a few little things like no soap dish in the shower, so had to put soap on the floor. The staff were fantastic. So nice and friendly, cause I don't speak any Italian, they managed perfectly, but also initiated conversation which is nice for a solo traveller. I'd stay here again.

My wife and I, and our friend, stayed at Il Chiostro for 3 nights in mid-April. We had been here in 2001 and found Pienza and Il Chiostro to be just as magical as the first time. We had large, comfortable rooms, one with an amazing view of the Val d'Orcia. The hotel has large hallways and airy common areas in addition to the wonderful terrace mentioned by many. The young desk clerks were very efficient, helpful, and fun to talk with. 2 minor negatives: 1. the TV picture sometimes deteriorated (at least on the France 24 station we were watching for Boston Marathon bombing updates) and there was no English language station, and 2. the caffe' americano was quite weak, unlike the great coffee we normally get in Italy and France. Aside from those minor criticisms, everything was great. The town is small, beautiful, and frequented by tourists (individuals and busloads). There are several very good restaurants (we enjoyed Latte di Luna, and La Bandita Townhouse Cafe'), many shops, and historical sights (we enjoyed the duomo and the Palazzo Piccolomini). Also, if you book a deluxe room you get free valet parking which saved us the trouble of finding a parking place.

one week in a great location - the little hilltop village of Pienza. The room was comfortable, the bathroom a marble cavern (typically Italian), our TV never worked. The cloisters are a wonderful place to linger, enjoying the scent of jasmine in the heat of summer. The views over the valley are breathtaking, especially in the evenings - stay and watch the swallows diving and swooping. The restaurant food is wonderful, great wine (we had Prosecco every night, and lovely whites), breakfast offered a generous selection in the European style. There are a plethora of good restaurants within a stone's throw of this lovely hotel. I would love to go back

Room Tip: try for a room with a view. Ours faced a side street and was a bit dark and the noise carried up to...

Our room was quite small, however, there were many rooms that were larger. The views are really amazing. The service was fantastic and the location a dream. Noisy hose pipe directly outside the bedroom window one night. I would recommend this place, though, for its charm, service, breakfast and location.

Room Tip: Ask for one of the larger rooms.

I stayed here one night and would return again. The hotel is in the center of town. parking is outside the walls, in public parking. I was given the last room available. It was on the third floor, small but ample, with weird paintings on the walls. The bathroom and the room were simple and clean. I was awakened in the middle of the night by the phone. Someone had programmed it to go off. Around 8 am, i was again awakened by a clanging cart noisily bring breakfast to someone on my floor. My breakfast was aple but nothing special. No fresh juice, no scrambled eggs, but good service. The view from the garden of the hotel was exceptional. All in all, this was a pleasant place. The town is lovely and full of people. Getting dinner was tough without a reservation.

We were here for just one night as part of a walking tour and were happy to return after an earlier visit. It is a very pleasant, comfortable and quiet hotel with a lovely cloister and view over the countryside. Breakfast is very good - we didn't try the restaurant. The staff were welcoming, pleasant and efficient.

Our only cavil was that made by earlier guests. Our room (off the cloister) needed a bit of TLC and general brightening. We would, however, return but try for a different room.
