We found this hotel just by coincident and thought the buliding looked nice from the outside so we checked in for one night. The only nice thing was the balcony, the rest of the room was horrible!!!! It was so dirty, the carpet was not hoovered, the walls just dirty, the interior dated and scruffy. But the worst thing of...

Everything was good organized. The only thing that could better is the shower. The water came almost in the sleeping room !

This place is beyond dreadful. I booked because I was charmed by the notion of a historic former monastery and it supposedly had parking. I have stayed in quirky old properties before. This was not in that category. It was dirty. There was only one power outlet, which was already occupied by the clock. The shower consisted of a drain...

We stayed 6 nights; staff friendly, good breakfast, great coffee. We got the infamous bathroom with shower/toillet together (common in small albergos in Italy). We requested another room without a problem we were changed to the one next to the front desk, clean, good size, tile floor but no mirror in the room, with a window facing the Piazza. If...

50-75m or so from the major bus plaza, approx 7-10 min walk to the main square the heart of Siena, the convenience and friendly help from the staff more than make up for any complaints about noise (i admit-noise=action...). Happy to have a breakfast before setting out each day. All the buses go here, can get anywhere, walk all around...

We liked this hotel - easy to find (we drove). Free parking a few blocks away. Right inside the city walls - very charming at night. The room was a bit small, but comfortable. The bathroom was quite small, especially the shower area but we worked it out. Great central location to do day trips to other parts of Tuscany....
