The hotel is in a great location. It is clean and a good value. The bath in our room was especially small. The staff were efficient but everyone lacked warmth. Overall it just was more dormitory-like than anything else.

Arrived and polite check in, very clean rooms and great views. Central location. The staff were very police and spoke Italian and English.

The only down side was paper thin walls, so you can hear everything your neighbours say and do. Literally everything.

Breakfast was ok, not awful and not great, typical stock standard included breakfast quality...

Overall I would stay here again for a cheap stay but is the bare minimum basic, but is clean and good location.

Perfect location with some wonderful views of Siena old town. Rooms are basic but comfortable. Some nice restaurants nearby also. Very clean and nice seating area outside. Staff are very helpful. Would stay here again...

Definitely worth booking a city view room. Nothing short of stunning. Whilst the hotel walls are not sound proof, in fact I could hear the person in the next room snoring, that's the only downside. The reception staff are friendly and helpful for non-Italian speakerd, the breakfast was the best we'd had in Italy, the lady who works in the breakfast lounge was lovely and having a lounge where you could use a computer for internet instead of your phone was wonderful. Wish I'd had more time at the Alma Domus and in Sienna.

It is very hard to find accommodations in the historic center of Siena, so we took a chance on this place. Not your conventional hotel; it was a convent that has been refurbished as a hotel. It is very modern, clean and up to date. The rooms aren't large, but comfortable, and the one we had had a tiny balcony, and the view was to die for. They had a nice breakfast included. Altogether charming and I would totally recommend it.

Room Tip: The higher ones have better views.

Lovely clean hotel within walking distance of Piazza del Campo and the Duomo, and next to San Domenico church. Siena is a great place in itself but also as a base to visit other areas in Tuscany and its wine regions. Too far to walk from train station, taxi was about 8 euro to the door.

I had a single room, small but enough space with an amazing view of the Duomo. Bathroom was small with a shower over toilet type scenario with a curtain. Not a big fan of shower curtains or this design as the floor remains very wet and slippery - which this did be careful! Walls are thin and can be noisy from both inside and the street but nothing too outrageous. Hotel has quiet time from 10pm to 8am which was respected. Yes, there are rules but nothing too spoil your stay. I planned in advance and did washing at my previous stop so not effected.

Breakfast was standard continental fare, drip filter coffee provided but can ask for cappuccino etc. Bread, cakes, croissant, fruit and yogurt. Kitchen staff cleared quickly and replenished as required too.

Overall lovely clean accommodation at an unbeatable price for Siena with a view to die for.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a view of the duomo
