we were abolutely happy with everything at this hotel. It looks fantastic, great breakfast, helpful service. It's about 15minutes walk from Volterra centre. On side, free and safe car park. We found this hotel the most quiet one on our one week roundtrip.

So glad we stayed here. 4 of us women shared a VERY spacious room with plenty of closet space. The bathroom had separate toilet, shower, and sink areas, so it works really well for multiple people in the room. It is a 15-min. walk into town. There is a FANTASTIC restaurant by the Coop that you pass on the way...

The room we stayed in was quite dusty and this was noticeable not only on the floors but as well on the top beds (the cover sheets were very very dusty). However, the bathroom was clean, breakfast was ok. We were by car and getting to the historical center was easy - right before the main entrance there's a spacious...

Great place to stay. Simple but well maintained rooms. Good breakfast. Only down was walking there with our bags and 4 children. Didn't realize it was that far. Without the bags and after staff had shown us an easier way of getting to the town it would take about 15/20min to walk. The options to stay in the town would...

Actually we've never stayed before at a place like this. It was a very interesting experience to stay in a former monastery. Its atmosphere was really inspiring. Our room was quite spacious and comfortable, very clean and bright and the bathroom too. We loved the small church next to the hotel. The breakfast room is incredible with the original (?)...

A wee bit away from the village centre but still a great...

We enjoyed our stay! It was very calming and quiet. Clean rooms, great service! Would plan to stay there again! Didn't know about lack of street lights at night though, so bring a flashlight for after dark if you plan to walk around! Bus stop to city center right in front at Lobby. Friendly staff!

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Not so far from the attractive Etruscan walls of Volterra, The Chiostro delle Monache is an ancient Franciscan convent, that was built together with the Church of San Girolamo in 1445 a.C. by the municipality and then assigned to the Franciscan order. Restored as a Hostel, The Chiostro delle Monache offers now some agreeably furnished private rooms, all with private bathroom and shower, and facilities, that you can find in higher hotels. Our aim is to propose a new idea of Hostel, closer to a low cost Hotel, perfect for families, study trip, business trips, groups, friends... Situated at only one km from Porta a Selci and the Etruscan Museum, this Hostel is situated in a quiet position, far from the city chaos and traffic, with the possibility to park the car free of charge. From her you can reach the most important cultural cities as Florence, Pisa, Lucca, Siena, San Gimignano and the seaside. Without structural barriers, this facility is well characterized by the internal marvelous cloister surrounded at the four sides by an open gallery, built respecting the drawing of Michelozzo (sculptor and architect in Donatello's laboratory), where you can sit and enjoy the peaceful atmosphere of the ancient Franciscan Convent, just a good stop. We offer a small caffetteria, a tv corner and a reading room, but also a beautiful frescoed hall, where breakfast is generally served. By reservation it is also available for dinners, brunches, business meetings, ceremonies and parties. At the back of the Chiosco there is a wide free parking available for all our guests and free of charge. ... more   less
