Hotel was ok but very different from the pictures. Area wasn’t the best but it is only a short walk to a nicer part of town. We only booked so we would have somewhere to park our car but wouldn’t stay here again.

Lovely spacious room. Could use a teakettle though. Beautiful view from our window. Very good location. We could walk into the historical part of the city in 5-10 minutes. The local bus stop was a matter of a one minute walk away from the hotel doors as well. The breakfast was excellent. Perhaps the only negative comment I could make is that the breakfast staff seemed neither relaxed nor happy, though they were polite. I’m not sure of the reason for this but it might be something that the hotel should explore.

Efficient check in. Room is clean, spacious and nicely decorated. Hotel is easy to reach by foot from bus/train station and is also in the historical/central part of the city therefore very convenient for site-seeing. Breakfast is very good.

I had a great stay at this property, it was very quiet. The front desk people were not that helpful with questions, the restaurant servers NOT friendly or helpful at all. The breakfast was just cold. The hotel is about 10 min walking from the the Main Street in the old town and 15-20 min straight walk to train station.

Beautiful courtyard and view. Walking distance to both the train station and city centre. Upon arrival, A/C, fridge, and safe didn’t work. AC and fridge were corrected but not the in- room safe. Almost every thing at the breakfast buffet was cold or room temperature, not good. The orange juice was not real orange juice. Nice fresh fruit tho.

Fabulous view of city from the room. Large open windows. Easy access to hotel and parking with rental car. Helpful staff Breakfast in garden overlooking city. GREAT little botteglieria wine bar just a few blocks away, with absolutely delicious tapas-like gourmet food at very reasonable prices, with helpful Owner/waiter Manuel. Defintely recommend and would stay there again.

This hotel exceeded my expectations! This was my husband and I first trip to Italy. The hotel was walking Distance to downtown, lots of shops/restaurants. When we arrived the front desk provided a map to us of Siena as well - It was absolutely stunning. We had room 205 with a private terrace, breakfast included and the staff were so sweet! I hope to come back some day! Thank You!!!
