The rooms are small and expensive, the internet only works in the small lounge. You have to use the stairs no elevator available and we were on the top floor. The staff was polite but clearly there to only do their job and they don't accommodate requests. There isn't a view from the pool or lounge even though they said... More

Dear Guest, I do not think you've ever stayed with us. You say "the internet only works in the small lounge". What do you mean with "small lounge" the 800 square meters of common areas available for our Guests and with free wi-fi access ?! "There isn't a view from the pool or lounge even though they said there was".Sorry... More

A beautiful cloister turned into a hotel a little outside Siena (5 mn drive), incredible garden, superbe service. It was just a 2 nights stop with the children but we could easily have spend a week. LOVED it. Probably my favorite place to stay in Italy this year !

Only had one night to stay in Siena and chose this beautiful old monastery. The staff was wonderful and the grounds were beautiful. Bed could have been a little softer but I couldn't have asked for much more. Great little spot. Wish we had more time.

The hushed elegance of a 14th century monastery was somewhat jarred when our little family with a rambunctious 2 year old, and Daddy clad in shorts and Rod Lavers arrived on Palio weekend. What a welcome. Benjamin and every member of the staff seemed to be focussed on hospitality and our comfort. Despite it being, perhaps, the craziest few days... More

This hotel is a real gem. Treated like Royalty from the moment we stepped through the entrance into the stunning courtyard and experience that happened every time we arrived. Taxi to centre of Siena can be arranged promptly and without fuss costs between 8-10 € per trip. (Not walkable in summer if you want to arrive in Siena fresh) This... More

We had a great time staying here, but I'll admit that it took us a day to fully appreciate the Certosa di Maggiano. First the good: wow, what a beautiful property! Staying at a converted monastery was so awesome, and it was nice to be away from the bustle of Siena after a day of sight seeing. Loved the pool... More

This is the third time that I have stayed at The Certosa. I like the hotel because of its location minutes away from the gates of Sienna. It gives you a Tuscan country feel while being minutes away from the sights and sound of one of Tuccanys great cities.That said I have a few issues. I raised the issue of... More

our trip to Tuscany didn't get off to the best start. We missed our Ryanair flight so had to fly the following day at an extortionate price. Added to this, car rental company once informed we would be arriving a day later, said they considered it a "no show" and cancelled the car altogether. Thus far we have not had... More

Disappointed from Certosa Di Maggiano, although my expectations were high. A truly wonderful old monastery with beautiful dining rooms. However, it gives the impression of being literally abandoned. Rooms with heavy and old furniture, prove some past glory, but these days are clearly over. Expensive at the same time. Definitely needs and DESERVES a good fresh touch. Change management for...

We were in heaven in this former monastery, and felt like we were in our own private villa. The service was beyond excellent. The location right outside the walls of Siena made it very easy to arrive and depart by car. If you ever want to feel like you own a villa, stay here.
