Affordable luxury in ancient Italian village. Beautiful accommodations and friendly staff (Lucco was amazingly helpful) made our stay at Hotel St. Catarina's as magical as one might imagine. The breakfast was a lovely addition to this already perfect stay and it saved us a lot of $$$.
There is a bus stop directly outside the hotel or you can walk into town (10 minutes to the square). Siena is a quiet college town and it looks like the set of a Merchant/Ivory film. We loved this charming hotel and can't wait to return.
