An absolutely awful experience! My wife and I were traveling by car throughout Italy. We thought Siena might be a nice stop on our way to Rome, so I made an online reservation for a modest room at Hotel Arcobaleno a couple days prior to our expected stay. AFTER my online reservation was confirmed, I then received notice of the... More

This quaint little hotel only 3 minutes drive from siena town offers great service, an amazing view and clean but simply rooms. The only way this hotel falls short is it breakfast. At around €54 a night this is a great affordable option I highly recommend.

Really nice little hotel, good restaurant with a nice garden and view. The breakfast was really good and the people working at the front desk were really nice and respond to emails very quickly. I would definitely stay here again!

Just came back from an excellent stay in this hotel. We stayed for 6 nights and I must say the hotel exceeded our expectations. Super friendly staff, easy check in/out and the price per night for what you get is unbeatable. We needed to go to Siena city center and followed all detailed instructions and recommendations given to us by... More

Hotel Arcobaleno was recommended by friends and it did not disappoint. It is nicely set back off the busy main road and has a very attractive courtyard entrance to the reception area. Very helpful reception staff always willing to answer questions and book tickets for us. We especially enjoyed having our continental breakfast each morning in the sun-filled veranda, a... More

This review is focusing on the value for value for money-aspect of staying in this hotel, and also what one can expect from a 3 star hotel. Service was everything from friendly and nice to somewhat restrained. We did though get the help we needed when we asked for help with booking some tickets and also with some laundry that... More

The end of a long day's drive and nowhere to stay. Driving around Sienna at dusk looking for hotels is frustrating. They are hid better than a hidden thing and so we drove on only to drive pass the Arcobaleno - stroke of luck! There was a free room. An extremely helpful receptionist who when we asked if we could... More

The staff in this B&B are great. They were extremely helpful and welcoming. The rooms were pristine but the decor in the bedroom is becoming slightly dated. The bathroom was fab and the shower gel/shampoo that is supplied smelt lovely. Breakfast was also great with a good selection of food and drink. The outside from the hotel is also very... More

Good place, close to the city center, but we really did not enjoy our stay (1 night), The hotel is uncomfortable. It does not have elevator and the room we stayed was very simple. Two beds for kids, not for adults. Too expensive according to the facilities.
