Reviewed yesterday NEW

Beautifully situated hotel, within short walk of all amenities but very quiet location. Comfortable, well equipped rooms, ours with lovely view worth paying the higher rate for, and our son in smaller room but just across the corridor. Exceptionally helpful staff at Reception. Free parking. A birthday trip worth remembering.

Very comfortable room, spotlessly cleaned every day. Excellent breakfasts, though did not use dining room for other meals. Well placed for all central activities and sights in Siena, though walking is always either up or down hill! Very helpful reception staff who all spoke excellent English

Dear Alan, thank you so much for your excellent review about our hotel! We are very proud! We just want to point out that the dining room serves also the dinner every day. The menu is very genuine and based on the Tuscan tradition. Moreover during the summer you can enjoy the dinner on the terrace admiring the beautiful sunset...

The hotel receptionist was so friendly and they upgraded our room for free to one with a balcony which was wonderful. the rooms are decorated in a rustic style and the mini bar was stocked with complimentary water which was a lovely touch. The hotel is only...

The room was wonderful, the views stunning! Their breakfast was everything a breakfast eating American could ask for! The location was a...

We found the Hotel Athena on TripAdvisor when we planned our overnight stay in Siena. We arrived to a very gracious staff in a great location on the edge of the city. The rooms was more of a typical upscale hotel room with a spacious bed area and large bathroom and an amazing view of the Tuscan countryside. Morning breakfast...

We were here for 3 nights and it was a very good stay. Room was large and had fantastic views over the countryside. Staff were very helpful and opened up the bar for us. The hotel has private parking which is essential. Pay attention to the driving instructions as Siena cannot be driven through the historic centre. Hotel was quite...

My family of 4 stayed in one of the family rooms and we absolutely loved it! Everything was very clean, comfortable and nicely updated.

We stayed at he hotel for 5 nights, including New Years Eve.
