Look at the pictures from some of the other comments - they don't lie. As my wife says, it's a view that just doesn't get tired. This is a true gem of a place. Get a country-side facing room and put on your walking shoes because it is a wee hike to the centre of town, but who cares, you're...

We loved this charming hotel. It was a bit of a splurge for us but worth it. Breakfast in the garden overlooking the Tuscan hills was the best.

We stayed for 2 nights at the Santa Caterina at the start of a cycling tour around some of Tuscany. The hotel was booked for us by the British company that organised our cycle tour, and it was a great choice. We had a large room on the ground floor with a large bathroom which had both a bath and...

What a great little hotel. It's a short walk to the Porta Romana, one of the gates into the walled town. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The hotel was spotlessly clean. Our room was large and airy, with a great view of the valley below. I couldn't stop taking photographs of this view - the light was different...

This is our 2nd stay at the Hotel Santa Caterina in Siena - and it stands firm as my husband and my favorite hotel. 2 years ago I read on this website about room 19 - and it was great advice. It is one of the only rooms with a balcony - and the only one that overlooks the Tuscan...

Of the 3 hotels we stayed in Italy, this was the most disappointing. The location isnt close to anything. Both day and night staff at the front desk was rude and not helpful, and our room was uncomfortable and noisy.

We stayed in Siena for 3 nights and loved this hotel. I am shocked to hear people complain about the size of the room because it was actually the largest room my husband and I had! We spent 120-150 Euros per night on rooms during our 2 weeks and spent 140 Euros on this room and felt it was one...

We stayed in Siena for only one night on our way from Tuscany to Rome. If you can maneuver your way around the walled city - which is a challenge in itself! - and find your way to this adorable family run hotel, you won't be disappointed. Although the rooms are extremely basic and very tiny, the location is superb....

We stayed in a double room at Santa Caterina for two nights in February 2008. It was reasonably priced at 85 euros a night, which included breakfast. We didn't need parking, but it's available for 15 euros per night. The staff were always friendly and polite, and breakfast was good (a few cereal choices, cakes, various pastries, yoghurt, cheese etc)....

very nice hotel only a 15-minute walk from central Siena; lovely breakfast room (terrace would be great in summer); extremely pleasant staff let us have a salami/cheese/wine "picnic" on the table in the common room and were accommodating in every way; room itself only average, but clean and reasonably good value (given the strength of the Euro)

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Santa Caterina Hotel in Siena offers more than a bed and a breakfast service. Housed in a renovated 18th-century patrician villa, it is a small and cosy hotel lying just a few metres from Porta Romana (Roman Gate), one of the medieval accesses to the town centre of Siena.If you are looking among all the hotels in Tuscany - and specifically among the hotels in Siena - for the one that can serve you both as a base for daily excursions and as a comfortable pied-à-terre within the city limits, our 22-room facility will meet your needs. All rooms have en-suite bathrooms, direct telephone, TV Sat, minibar, air conditioning, wireless Internet access, and are furnished, as the lounge is, in the typical old Tuscan style.Providing guests with the cheerfulness and cosiness of a typical Siena’s bed and breakfast, Santa Caterina guarantees much more. The wide and luxuriant garden with its veranda where breakfast is served can offer you what other Siena hotels cannot, that is, a view over the splendid Siena landscapes that will paint before your eyes every morning unexpected, changing colour shades among hilly lines. The refined but homely atmosphere and its privileged location, make this hotel the ideal place for a romantic and pleasant stay in the land locals love to call the old-fashioned way, "Terra di Siena", the land of Siena in Italy's heart. At Santa Caterina, “hotels in Siena” means home. Come and enjoy our home! ... more   less

“Rooms facing the garden are so quiet, you think you're in the country (at least in Nov. when there are no people in the garden.)”

“Choose rooms facing AWAY from the street, so you can enjoy the view on the occasion you're inside.”
