Great staff - friendly and helpful Surprising pass to their camping pool Not great breakfast- needs fresh fruit for sure. Wished the room was a little more unique or at least decorated- air conditioning didn’t work and we were so hot all night

Great easy location. Not really within walking to the city of Volterra. But close enough to drive 2 min to parking. Great breakfast and good dinner location attached/near the rooms.

Comfort and Character at a great price.
What a great find. Lots of character. Comfortable room, especially like the bed and pillows. Breakfast was excellent. Just a short walk to the beautiful town of Volterra. Hotel was quiet. Free parking and good wifi. Quite a unique place to stay. Would recommend.

A unique and enjoyable experience
An enjoyable stay in a unique facility. The rooms were clean and comfortable. The courtyard provided a wonderful place to relax. While the reception desk was not open all day, when it was it provided beverages and a cappacino at truly modest prices. The restaurant affiliated with the facility was excellent and I highly recommend the pollenta appetizer.

Great hotel, inexpensive and friendly staff.
The best! Great historical place. Excellent accommodations. Good breakfast. Excellent location near everything and everywhere you need and want to go. Valentina, at the front desk she is the most professional, smart, helpful (speaks 4 languages) knows what to recommend to fit your budget. Every Concierge speaks at least 3 languages: English, Spanish, French. I have not enough words to recommend and thank this beautiful hotel and the city of Volterra and its kind people for making our vacation a forever memorable experience. Thank you Chiostro Delle Monache. We'll return for sure. Grazie mile!
