We booked / stayed 6 nights in a double room in June 2015. The room description in the hotel listing was correct as a “simple room”. The ensuite was too small, the basin restricted access to the WC pan. The shower recess was dirty with mould in the tile grout. The drain from the wash basin was partly blocked as... More

We arrived late in Siena and the reception was closed. We were not given the access code to the front door, so we were lucky that other people got in while we were outside. The elevator doesn't work in the evening so we had to lug a big suitcase up four flights of stairs and that was not fun. The... More

I booked online and paid just €36 including breakfast. So I was not expecting 5 star. The room was small but clean but for one night fine. Right at bus stop from station and 5 mins walk to the Campo main square. Great value budget hotel with friendly helpful service and free wi fi

Through the advisory number of hotels in Siena, I was recommended to go to this hotel. Only 2 stars, a one person bedroom. The shower is only 60cm*60cm. The whole bathroom, which consists of a toilet and the shower is soo tiny that you can't turn around. The bed hangs in the middle. Never ever go there. I'm Cycling to... More

Location of the Hotel was fantastic, central and short (10-30 minutes) walk to most of the main attractions. Nothing too flashy with the Hotel. Deco, room size, breakfast and cleanliness is alright. The two main issues I had was: 1) The street that the Hotel is on, is very busy and traffic noise from the buses, motor bikes and trucks... More

Staff was kind & friendly. Location is second to none. If you are looking for an affordable and pleasant place to stay in central Siena, this is it! I would definitely return and I recommend this hotel to other travelers.

I stayed in this hotel on a school trip, and the location is excellent- very central in Siena and within walking distance of the main sites. The bedroom was clean, even if the furniture was simple and quite dated. The major let-down was the bathroom. It was tiny, and the toilet was literally in the shower, with a useless bidet... More

I've stayed in this hotel many times, and I haven't one single complaint about the staff. The rooms might not be the best, but this can always be improved upon. Good service cannot be improved upon, as it is worthy of a five star hotel.

This was a nice location to stay in Sienna. Very convenient to bus and short walk to all you would see in Sienna. The price was great, the breakfast typical for Italy. I would have rated higher except that the street noise was a bit load. The other reviews would have stated this as well. If you are one who... More
