Bed sheets were full of MOTHS! When have asked to change my room I was told the hotel was fully booked and I do not have other choice than to sleep in this dirty room! The only choice was to give us new bed sheets. However when my Italian friend started to speak with him Italian he directly managed to find us another small room however we have paid for a bigger one. They are trying to take advantage from foreigners visitors. Pay attention!
We booked a superior room but the first one we got was definitely not the room we booked. We immediately informed reception that it was not acceptable. The second was also small and without a sitting area. The third room we were shown was good and spacious. There was a large bathroom. Airconditioning worked great. The Wifi was not good, very slow. Probably due to thick walls inside the property. Breakfast with a view was lovely and we used the pool a couple of times which was nice. Free parking was available around the center, 5 to 10 minutes walk. The hotel is close to the town walls.
A beautifully situated hotel in a former cloister. Those rooms which face out over the terrace have awe inspiring views over the Val d’Orcia The terrace provides a wonderful place to enjoy breakfast and the pool area is calm and relaxing. The rooms vary widely, I had a very comfortable and spacious room with a magnificent view, a couch, a couple of chairs and a frescoed ceiling, Some other rooms I saw were less desirable. On the down side, the bathroom was cramped, the air conditioning balky and the wifi mostly unusable (which was a significant inconvenience). They claim to have problems with iPhones. The location is outstanding, the staff welcoming and I could happily spend an entire day watching the changing light pass over the valley from the terrace.
Pienza is a magical Tuscan hilltop town, and I’ll Chiostro is a jewel of an accommodation. This former monastery is in a beautiful setting, with a staff that was eager to place. The valley views from our room and the outside area were stunning to say the least. The pool looked lovely, even though we were too busy to use it. Pienza is definitely worth visiting, and there are a selection of small osterias and restaurants to choose from. EAT THE PECORINO CHEESE made here. We had a courtyard picnic one evening with a bottle of Brunello and bread and cheese.
Generally speaking it is a pity that a property like this is losing value because it is not properly managed. 1. The room was dirty and we had to ask to have the sheets changed and one towel was stained. 2. The elevator works randomly to say the least. In the evening it did not work at all and we had to take the stairs to 3rd level. 3. There is no WIFI. Each time we had to log onto a hot spot. It is impossible to have both the laptop and a phone on. The response is very slow or not at all. Do not use any on line bank account. Very dangerous. 4. Breakfast is impossible to eat. First you have to wait for over 20 minutes and eventually you will get reheated scrambled eggs(most probably in the microwave??? unacceptable). 5. The restaurant service is another lack of service. Long wait and even more long wait between services. Have to ask several times for oil??? Pitty, pitty... for a UNESCO heritage site…
An outrageous location with rooms from the old times, excellent atmosphere and the garden which you won’t even dream about. The view from the garden, the swimming pool and the restaurant is breathtaking. The food of the restaurant is in its own class. We stayed there was 23 people with motorbikes. Parking was outside the pedestrian soon. But Still easy to access the hotel my feet. You feel like being in a different world. I fully recommend this hotel I will
The location is magic. Set in the heart of town at the Via de Rossalina number 26, overlooking the Orcia Valley, there aren’t many hotels that can beat it’s view and setting. Being in the middle of the town, which is in a ZTL, you can’t reach it by car. Not to practical if your traveling with your family. The hotel could have informed us that it is possible to enter the Via della Mura to unload at one of the appointed parking spots, but their scarce abilities in English made them refrain from that. The hotel itself is in dire need of refurbishment and overhaul. It’s being enthusiastically cleaned with chlorine these days, but that can’t hide there is a lot of decay going on. Our first room had a broken bed that I fixed for the night. The next day we where given the adjacent room, which was fine. The mattresses are totally shot. So make sure you stay maximum of two nights, or your back won’t be pleased. The hotel is very noisy, so be aware of that. …
Really interesting location in the cloisters. Room was fairly small and a small bathroom with tiny shower which after our walk didn’t seem big enough. Room was superior but presumably that was for the view. Quite spectacular with the thunderstorm! Nice staff who were very helpful. Breakfast was ok but nothing to write home about compared to others in the area. Hint: have a drink at the bar in front of the Duomo called Idyllium - it is quite spectacular!!!!
we stayed for 1 night in this hotel. The lady at check in was very friendly and helpful and all cheerful and smiley. The same could unfortunately not be said about the restaurant staff. The room was very basic, no frills or anything else but I guess that suits a chloister which is a place of modesty. The view from our windows was stunning: right over the Val d'Orcia so I could. just catch the sunset from our room! Breakfast was plentyful and very tasty and nice to have on the terrace with again the stunning view. Overall this hotel felt a bit impersonal and crowded, but for 1 night it was okay
We stayed in this hotel two nights and it was a very pleasant stay in a very special building. The building was formerly a monastery and the history is very apparent. The breakfast was lovely (a great way to start the day) and the pool was perfect (a great way to end the day).
