Quirky hotel close to the centre of Siena
Posted May 26, 2015
This is a hotel with character! This review may sound quite negative, but actually we really liked the place - I just don't think it would suit everyone. We arrived by taxi, which is just as well because I'm not sure we would have found it by ourselves. The signage is quite discrete. Our initial welcome was a bit lacking due to the fact the lady on reception didn't speak much English. However, every other time we passed through reception we met with someone who, although her English was also limited, was incredibly friendly and welcoming. And she sorted out a taxi for us at the end of our stay. There is no lift and the stairwell was quite small up to the third floor - this is not a hotel for someone with mobility issues. The bedroom was not huge but ideal for a short stay. It was incredibly clean and tidy. The bathroom is very narrow but well equipped (including with lovely linen towels). The bed was very comfy and we both slept very well. Breakfast is limited but perfectly adequate. It's well within walking distance of centre of town and all the tourist sites. If you want a base for tourism, this is an ideal place to stay.
