Recent guest reviews
This was my 2nd visit to Siena (went last year) and my 2nd time to choose Hotel Chiusarelli for my stay, this time with my daughter. We love this location - it's only a block from Piazza Gramsci, the popular bus stop inside the city walls. The bus comes from both Florence and Rome. It's a 2 min walk to the hotel's front door.. The Basilica of San Domenico, also called Basilica Cateriniana (St Catherine), which is just across the street, and the amazing Duomo di Siena can be seen from your room if you get one of the street-facing corner rooms on the 3rd floor ((2nd floor to Italians)..One note, this hotel does not have an elevator..They will help you with luggage if needed. The stairs are not steep. Stairs are also necessary to access the dining room on the lower level, which has a lovely terrace for both inside and outside dining, depending on weather. Stairs are not a problem for us, but just be aware.. The reception at each visit has been wonderful..they have a great city map and will show you where you can find restaurants (probably a half-dozen within a 2 minute walk) and other areas of interest. Very helpful staff. The dining room is quite spacious with a full buffet breakfast of pastries, wide selection of coffees/teas, eggs, fruit, yogurts, meats. The beds are comfortable - we had twins - with extra blankets and pillows, and a spacious bathroom/shower. I highly recommend this hotel and location..it puts you in the heart of the city, about a 10 minute walk to Duomo..you really can't get lost in Siena.. I especially enjoy the passagiata on the weekends in the evenings..when everyone is out strolling the streets; families, children, elderly couples arm-in-arm, young people..Great fun to observe and participate with the Sienese. Italian Opera Siena has a wonderful concert several evenings during the week and was only 2 blocks from the hotel - an easy walk after dinner in the hotel restaurant..Tickets can be bought online or at the door at Santo Stefano alla Lizza, on Piazza la Lizza. This year, a Rick Steves group tour was also staying at the hotel..It's on his list of recommendations and that was another reason for my selection.
This hotel is very convenient to the bus station but is in a very good area of town and near to the main sights. The staff were very pleasant and the room felt very clean. The only improvement would be the provision of tea and coffee making facilities in the room
Stayed here while on a Italian tour. Room was clean, modern but with old touches. View was not terrific, but nice to have a big window for air. Nice breakfast. The bells are unforgettable! Easy walking to all attractions.
Excellent location with fabulous, friendly staff, this hotel if great. It's not fancy by any means but it offers great value for money and the staff are worth their weight in gold. If you have a problem with access let them know in advance so they can give you a suitable room. This old building has no lift.
This morning we woke up at seven. Not because our alarm went off, no because of the church bellls. Its a nice hotel, comfortable room/bathroom. The hall smelled funny. Breakfast was okay. The bread was as everywhere in Tocani not tasty. The hotel is well situated, near all the main sites.
Great location - within walking distance of the medieval city. Really loved the ambience, decor and elegant style. However there are multi levels so flights of stairs of varying lengths - no lift. There were some rooms on the reception level.. The breakfast/restaurant was in the basement and I'm not sure whether there is a way of accessing on the level. the breakfast was acceptable and adequate but not outstanding. The only lounge area was in the hall area - rather bleak and not very welcoming. One afternoon I would have enjoyed tea on the terrace but this was not really available - reception had a kettle and tea bags but no milk. It appeared they had access to some alcohol but there was no real bar just a corner of the restaurant which was open about 7.30. The room was excellent although no view, well-appointed and clean. Towels were changed every day and sheets 3 times in our 4-night stay. Staff were efficient and generally helpful but not very welcoming. Would I stay again....probably for it's location.
A classic little 3 star (no more, no less) hotel with a great location on the edge of the city proper. If you are driving (we were) there is nearby free parking and it is relatively easy to drive to the front door to drop off and pick up bags. (No small thing in Italy!) There is no elevator, so be prepared to lug the bags. And the church bells and traffic noise (see other reviewers) is considerable. Bring ear plugs. Still, the staff is friendly, the breakfast is OK and the location is, as mentioned, great.
First things first. If you are driving pull up the front and park sort of on the sidewalk and take your luggage inside. Parking is a couple of blocks away at the stadium. We were right after a lightening strike had damaged everything electrical. The staff did a marvelous of trying to make things work. They found us a room after we returned from dinner that had the A/C working. Good location to all of the sites. Decent sized room, well equipped.
Stayed 1 night with family. Looking charming on entering. Staff at reception are efficient but lack warmth. There is no lift in the hotel. Staff will offer to carry your luggage. We were on second floor. The stairs are a challenge after a day of sightseeing. The room is clean and relatively spacious. The main problem is the noise. Street noise was loud on the night we stayed. The worst was the church bells. They are loud and long. They ring at 7am and 7:30. No need for alarm. Breakfast is basic. Mainly pastries and cereals. Coffee from a self serving machine. The hotel is close to bus station which is it’s main attraction.
We stayed for 6 nights in September. The hotel was clean, the staff was friendly and helpful and the breakfasts were more than adequate. Breakfast included fresh fruit, a pleasant surprise. We were provided with assistance for tour planning from the front desk. The staff spoke English and were very helpful
