“Good hotel in great location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 13, 2013

We stayed at the Hotel Chiusarelli as part of a Rick Steves group tour. The hotel is located near the Basilica dell'Osservanza and approximately a 3-4 block walk from the Piazza del Campo. Our room was good size with two twin beds, nightstands a desk and a clothes wardrobe. We had 3 windows. At first the room seemed to be a bit warm and stuffy and we couldn't figure out how to control the air conditioner. I inquired at the front desk and was informed that the front desk controls the temperature of each room. They turned down the temperature and we were fine for the rest of our stay. The room was clean and the beds were comfortable. There were heavy, light-blocking drapes on the windows. Our room didn't face the main street, so the room was quiet. However, some in our group had rooms on the main street, which they said could be noisier.

Our room had a regular sized bath with a bathtub/shower combination. The water was hot with good water pressure. There is free wi-fi in the room, which requires a password from the front desk. Unfortunately, the password expires after a period of time and you have to keep getting new passwords, but the front desk was accommodating and friendly in this regard. Breakfast was good, with a wide assortment of items.

Room Tip: Pick a room away from the main street if you want to be in a quieter location.

After a couple of days in Albergo Chiusarelli, my impressions were mixed. Nice and peaceful location, but only average breakfast. Clean room, but not especially clean bathroom. Much better look of my room than before (I've been in this hotel 2000/2001, and the interior was so grayish), but still pretty dark. Stuff very cordial (NB maybe not so warm if you cannot speak Italian language like me, which means: like an Italian), but service can be very slow, too.

Stayed here a couple of nights and I was not impressed at all. Booked the hotel due to its high rating on tripadvisor and was left dissapointed.
The service at the front desk was cold and not welcoming at all. The room, although spacious, was not 100% clean. The shower is very dirty with mold visible throughout. The toilet was also not in a good condition.
Breakfast also left a lot to be desired. The only positive is the location, very central, close to bus stops and all the big attractions. Hopefully the staff will correct these mistakes.

I had this hotel in mind to stay and my client also suggested since he is a local resident. Great hotel and fantastic location. The room was very nice and lots of space. The front desk was very nice and provide super service. The internet connection was even great. I could not find anything wrong. The hotel is so close to restaurants and places to visit. I love to walk and nice to reach everything. I wished that I could stay for Sunday since I love football and the stadium was right behind. I would go back tot he same hotel on my next trip to Siena and this was my first time.

Room Tip: Do not pay attention to negative comments. It is a great hotel to stay and great room for breakfast.

We booked this hotel because friends had already booked there. The hotel is near the bus station and close walking distance to all the interesting sights in Siena.
It's an attractive old building with helpful and friendly staff.
We were surprised that when we required some laundry to be done we were informed laundry was not done at the hotel. It could be sent out of the hotel and would take 2 days minimum.
Our room, at the back of the hotel overlooking a football field, had a balcony where we managed to dry washing in the afternoon sun!
The room was pleasant and roomy enough for our 3 night stay. The shower was over a small bath with a built in seat which I was able to use but my husband found annoying when showering.
We had dinner in the restaurant on our first night--10% discount. The meal was nothing exceptional but was satisfying and quite good value. We had better food at a comparable price outside the hotel.
Breakfast was self service with one machine that dispensed all hot drinks. No staff served at breakfast and only one person worked at replenishing the buffet table.
The queue to the machine was, at times, 15 people and a real time waster. A better alternative would have been to have tea and coffee served to the tables.
Breakfast was adequate on the first morning but there was no variety on the mornings we were there. The lack of variety in the buffet combined with the line up for a hot beverage made breakfast less than enjoyable.
Considering the tourist trade in Siena, I think this hotel is probably as good as you get for the price.

Room Tip: Ask for a room at the back with a balcony, if possible.

I was at this hotel for the first time, believe me, in 1960. The Chiusarelli was at that time as it is today, located in a quiet part of town, near a bus station and not far from the Duomo, the Piazza del Campo and the Palazzo del Comune, the overcrowded main atractions of Siena. Fifty two years later, Siena is allways splendid but no more a peaceful medieval enclave and for this reason my wife and myself have enjoyed for nine days the calm of our room at the Chiusarelli. Buffet-Breakfast, served at the dining room, was very good but diner was so-so. To be honest with the Chiusarelli dinner, it was the same everywhere in the city concerning the sienese cuisine despite a faithful follow-up of the recommendations of American and French travel guides. Maybe, a direct consequence of de crowds visiting the city. Nevertheless, the Chiusarelli remains a very good option as a base to enjoy Siena and sourrounding areas.

Room Tip: Ask for a room overlooking the Siena football ground
