Lovely, old world charm. Amazing Resturant

Originally wrote 3x as much! Close to the train station, not walking distance, will need to take a cab. Parking avail if you have a rental car. You cannot drive in Siena unless you’re a resident or cab/mass transit. The main hotel does not look that big, but they have separate buildings. The place is bigger than you think. I booked one of the lower cost rooms, they upgraded us upon arrival since it was our honeymoon. All the staff were so friendly & helpful. I love the Tuscan décor of the whole place. Don’t expect new, luxe or modern, it is typical and gives the appropriate Tuscan feel you should want for your experience. Breakfast is included, it’s good, the tartes were personally my favorite. Skip the “American” scrambled eggs & bacon and enjoy the fruit, cheese, meat & pastries. Take advantage of their nightly wine & delicious tapas in the bar, it’s included but I don’t see it mentioned in the description. We enjoyed our wine & nibbles on their outdoor patio which overlooks beautiful Siena before heading in for dinner. Everything we ordered at their restaurant for dinner & dessert over the course of our stay was amazing. Make friends the with matradee, he’s a gem! They packed us box lunch for free one of our tour days. The Duomo is prettier & more intricate then anything in the Vatican museums and the Sistine Chapel. We extended our stay an extra day so we could enjoy and explore Siena more. We will be glad to stay here again!
