Stayed a week as visiting daughter who lives in old city. Pluses are good location within city wall, free parking, friendly staff, good wifi and nice terrace bar. The rooms are adequate - we had deluxe on top floor with nice views. However, note that shower over bath arrangement was tricky to get in to and quite tight for space....

This hotel is right next to the old city wall, and an easy walk to all of Siena, which is a lovely town. The view from our hotel room showed olive trees, vineyards, the city wall, and the mountains in the distance. The front desk staff were helpful and assisting us make a dinner reservation the second night we were...

Hotel is located in historic Siena. Good location and walking distance to Piazza Del Campo and all of the old town areas. 5th floor (reception level) room was clean, but very loud on street side. Certainly not what was advertised in their website photos. The breakfast selection was mostly pastries, the eggs were watery and the bacon severely under-cooked. For...

This hotel is at the edge of the walled city - so the view is spectacular. It's quieter than inside the city centre with an uphill walk to the city centre (or downhill coming home) but not too far. We got a taxi from the train station with no problem. The traffic is controlled and mostly one way so don't...

This hotel is in a great position, just inside the walls and it offers parking which is so valuable. It has a lovely rooftop bar and the room was fine, a bit small bit with a nice balcony and view. What let this hotel down was the breakfast arrangements! Goodness it was like a bun fight. Far too many people,...

Loved this hotel. Would recommend taxi to get there - we arrived via bus from Florence and it was not a comfortable and straight forward bus journey to the hotel - save yourself the frustration - taxis are not that expensive. Once at the hotel, we walked to the city center - Palio site, and Duomo. Siena is beautiful. Breakfast...
