“Lovely hotel in great location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 24, 2013

My husband and I spent 5 nights in Siena at the Hotel Chiusarelli. It is a lovely, smaller hotel in a great location, halfway between the Cathedral of San Domenico and the Piazza Gramsci, the main bus terminus. Great for exploring the city, and to catch the bus to Florence, Rome, etc.

We were promptly greeted and shown our rooms. Staff helped us carry our bags to our 3rd floor rooms. (Note: there is no elevator, and anyone who has trouble with stairs might have difficulty. However, if you can't climb stairs, you might want to reconsider visiting Siena, a hill town with many steep streets.) Our room faced the back of the hotel overlooking the soccer stadium with a small outdoor patio. The room and large bathroom were well-maintained and meticulously clean throughout our visit. There was a large armoire was for our clothes, and a small desk with a fridge. We slept with the windows open, and were awakened by the 7 AM bells tolling from San Domenico - not a problem for us, close the windows if it will bother you.

A nice buffet breakfast was included: self-serve espresso/cappuccino/coffee machine as well as a choice of teas, cornetti, cold cereal, bread with choice of cheeses and meet, fresh fruit and juices. Wi-Fi was not included, but available for purchase: 1 hour/2 euro, 3 hours/3 euro. (You sign in and out, so time does not have to be used in one sitting.) Dinner is available in their restaurant,

Other reviewers comment on front desk staff. They were not warm and fuzzy, but always friendly and responsive to any of our needs.

Room Tip: We asked for a room in the back away from the street. If stair climbing is a problem, ask for a room...

Very comfortable hotel and pretty interior; painted (trompe l'oeil) walls, back terrace facing towards the soccer field. Very comfortable room and good value for the quality. Pretty breakfast room and very nice breakfast. Well situated very close to the main bus station (Piazza Gramschi) and other areas. I found Siena to be a little confusing at first to figure out as the streets curved a lot. But enjoyed visiting the town and day trip to San Gimignano.

First we were convinced that we could walk from the train station to the hotel. It was pouring rain so we got a cab. A note about cabs...if you get them from the train station the price is lower than if you call them from the hotel. Once in the cab we realized that we probably wouldn't have been able to figure out how to get to the hotel. As most of the way was uphill it would have been a challenge toting the luggage we had.

This hotel was small and quaint. Pluses were that it was close to most everything and the price was excellent. Room was adequate. I like good reading lights and a clock; clock missing and lights dim. Bed was good, temperature comfortable.

Easy walking distance to many of the attractions. Gates to the old city are very close. Duomo an absolute must see!!

Breakfast which was included was quite good. Lots of choices. We had one dinner at the restaurant. No one raved about their choice; my sirloin was raw. Evidently that is how meat is served in that part of Italy. After sending it back, it returned medium rare. All in all dinner was pricey and only okay. Breakfast was so much better.

Front desk people were helpful but not overly so. Twice they had a longish conversation with one of the other people who worked there ignoring us. We thought that was curious.

Would we return? Depends on if we wanted to spend more money or if we were okay with the negatives to make up for the lower price.

We got a great deal on this hotel and noted that it was fully booked out even though it was the off season. The location is on the edge of the old city but still an easy walk to the main city attractions. We requested (and got) a room with a balcony overlooking the sports oval behind the hotel and some bushland. The room was comfortable and the breakfast room was great with a good selection of food. Staff were busy but remained friendly and helpful. The hotel is in a fairly ordinary street but we found a couple of good restaurants nearby at the bottom end of the street near the cathedral. There is no lift and getting to the room is a bit of a trek up and down stairs but that was not an issue for us.

I was here just for one night, but I was very satisfied. Room was great, old furniture but nice, bathroom very big, everything really clean, good heating, staff really nice, very helpful.
Location is great, 5 minutes by walk to main pedestrian area. You can reach everything in easy way. Breakfast was also great, various things, typical continental breakfast.
Parking was 15 euros for us for 24 hours.
Be only aware of hot water, sometimes I had a feeling that it burns skin. It comes on waves, and it is a problem for child or women who is more sensitive. I don' t know what is a problem with it.
At the end, very nice hotel with some problems.
