Il Chiostro Del Carmine is a modernized 13th century cloister, complete with entry gate and walls enclosing the inner courtyard, sitting rooms, chapel, a beautiful breakfast room, and grand stairs to upper floors. The building was a cloister and the interior has retained its authenticity with modern conveniences. The bountiful breakfast had it all: savory, sweet, salty, fresh fruit, cereals, breads, pastries, juice, coffee, and more. Our room, with a very comfortable bed, was on the second floor with access to a sunny private patio complete with bistro table and two chairs. The room was very quiet, even with the window open to the night sky.
It's location is perfect, a few minute walk from the Piazza's, shopping, and the Duomo, close to trattoria's and osteria's, and the best gelato shop in all of Italy!
In addition, the friendly, helpful desk staff answered questions, printed maps, made dinner suggestions and reservations, and told us about Siena's ricciarelli, a sweet cookie made from almonds. Absolutely delicious! We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and we look forward to returning to the city and this special place.More
