We spent a lovely evening at the Porta Romana. The hotel is just on the edge of the city but only takes 15 mins to walk to the 'centre' or main square. The walk will take you through the city walls and the past the Porta Romana itself. It's basically a gentle amble which will take you through the lovely...

We were immediately impressed by where the hotel was situated, overlooking a gorgeous Tuscan valley. We recommend getting a taxi to the hotel if you arrive by train as it's quite a hike from the station and you will need to catch two buses to get there. Our room was clean and comfortable and the staff were exceptionally helpful and...

We really enjoyed our stay here. It's situated on the edge of a hill, with a nice valley view of olive groves and a large patio in back. Our 2 bed room was quite large and had a large bathroom (shower only, which is common). Clean comfortable and quiet. It's outside the walls of Siena, so you have an up...

We had a very hard time finding this hotel; their directions aren't really directions and our maps didn't really help. I'd recommend getting directions from the hotel ahead of time. Our room was comfortable with a tv, shower and toilet. There wasn't A/C, but we didn't need it in September. We had a great view overlooking the hills of Tuscany....

This hotel is ideally placed if you are travelling from the south. it is then easy to walk from the hotel into the old city and all the delights of Siena await. Parking is available and is a must for a hotel in this city. The room was very small and hot -no air con. But it had all the...

This is a delightful budget hotel (we paid only E65-75 through venere.com). The rooms are a nice size with a little extra space to spread out or do yoga. Although located on a busy road, the rooms are away from the road and look over the Tuscan countryside. There is plenty of parking. The bathrooms are large and the towels...

What a disappointment. The location is very good – the only place I could find with a car park but also within walking distance of the city of Siena, so you don't have to worry about driving in and finding parking or getting the bus. The other review here talks about the wonderful views from the rooms, but the view from...
