The hotel is located on Via Banchi di Sopra, less than one minute's walk to the main piazza. The location is 5 star. The hotel? Not so much. Although the staff are quite friendly and accommodating, the hotel itself does not live up to the room rates. The historic building itself is beautiful, but the rooms need a little sprucing...

I am member of the leaders holtel of the world since 2001 and I cannot believe our management allows this hotel to be part oh the chain. Poor food! Not updated facilities, unqualified staff and absurd price. I paid at least EUR 680,00 per nigth for 2 adults and one child.

We stayed during the July Palio. The hotel is perfectly located and the rooms of a very good size. The thing that made it for us, though was the attitude and service of the staff. Everyone, doorman, reception, restaurant and all made us feel completely at home. The one who stood out, though was Nabil the concierge for whom nothing...

Although the location is excellent (albeit noisy) and the palazzo provides a taste of a historic grandeur, the modern frescos are cheap and furnishings haphazard. Common areas are hardly cozy or inviting. The rooms are worse--with furniture that seems collected from garage sales. Bathrooms are dated and incongruously efficient (read: rather cheap). Service is OK. Overall, there is nothing 5...

We stayed here for 9 nights in May. I have particular needs as I am on dialysis and the hotel had to make adjustments for my needs. They were fantastic with this and ensured that everything was in order. I had asked for a room that had a walk in shower and this was accommodated. We were also delighted that...

We are leading hotel members and immeidately were upgraded to a junior suite. Accomodations were very nice. The room had been updated, the bed was hard (European style) but our sleep was good.

Amazing room with a nice veranda where we could have dinner al fresco. Unbeatable location. Helpful and very kind staff, who helped us to plan side trips around Siena and reccomended and booked some nice restaurants. Room service is good and fast, but a little bit expensive.
