“Well satisfied”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 December 2011

I stayed in the very top room - 53 steps up from the reception - for four nights in mid-June. I thought the room, bathroom and a/c were good. So was the refrigerator. The view, directly to the east, was wonderful around sunrise and sunset - but I did have to close the shutters shortly after sunrise, because the sun was so powerful at that time.

The staff were not only cordial but friendly. Breakfast was more than one would expect from a "continental breakfast." There's a supermarket very near, on the main street.

I would love to go back there with my wife, but she has a minor mobility problem, and the steps would be difficult for her.

Room Tip: I had a room on the very top floor, which was okay for one person. The room directly below it is bet...

My husband just spent 19 days touring Italy from North to South and our stay here was disappointing. Upon our arrival, a note was affixed to the front door stating they would be back pronto. 10 minutes later a young lady arrived to check us in. She was very strange and didn't seem to have all her faculties.
Our room was on the second floor over the "lobby" and was pleasant enough and clean if not a little claustrophobic, the shower was the smallest I ever encountered.
What made our stay awful was the the persistent odor and stench of cigarette smoke, ever present. The proprietor is a constant smoker and although there was a sign behind the counter indicating no smoking, apparently it only applied to guests.
We had to put a towel in front of the door to keep the stench of the smoke out.
In the morning we tried to go down for a quick coffee but after going down two flights of stairs through the smoke, we couldn't stand sitting in the basement breakfast room, marinating in the smell.
The first thing I did when we arrived at our next hotel, was take a long shower and wash my hair!

Room Tip: If you stay here, stay as far away from the lobby and front door unless you enjoy the smell of cigar...

The location the best one just 5 min from the Piazza Del Campo ( the centre of Siena).The room was very comfortable just as a medieval one and very clean.Breakfast serving was very good one with fresh nice bread,fresh coffee etj..The staff are very nice and gentle.I think it is a good place where you can feel yourself well after the trip round Siena.I would recommended every one, who wants to visit Siena a medieval city to go to this hotel,because you can feel as you are in middle age.It is the aim of this travel!!!!.That Mr.or Mrs who has written so badly didn't want to enjoy the medieval hotel they had to go to somewhere!!!

Room Tip: It is very quiete place,the location excellent.Don't forget that it is a medieval kind of hotel.

maybe it was just bad luck, but we had no hot water and noone was around the lobby to ask for help. the hotel was left unattended. unbeknownst to us the owner lives across the street. we should have know to call her there if there was a problem. she was apologetic and did the right thing and discounted our rate. no hard feelings. we loved Siena.

I booked this hotel because Arthur Frommer recommended it highly. I just really did not care for it. It was clean, the room was fine but it all felt sort of claustrophobic. Lobby non existent. They provided you with a key to unlock the outer door at night. I did not know if the owner was there, or for that matter anyone else! As I was traveling alone the thought that I might be the only one in the building was unnerving.
The air conditioner was so so with a remote control that was impossible to figure out.

Per other reviews; the location is the main selling point on this property. The woman who runs it is also extremly kind. I think it is possible that some people find the place charming, though we did not happen to feel that way. It was disappointing that our a/c was broken given how hot it was while we were in Siena. When we asked about it, we were told that the entire hotel had no a/c and we understood. At breakfast, we overheard a couple of other tables talking about their a/cs--and how they worked so well that one person had to turn his off halfway through the night because he was so cold. So that was a bit off-putting. However a/c does not make or break a hotel experience; this place just felt rather out-dated in general.

Very good situated hotel in centre of Siena. Breakfast was OK and the staff very friendly.
Calm streets around so our sleep was perfect. Rooms are big enough and very clean, with all needed facilities. I would come back again.
