The room and bath were clean. The light by the beds was so dim I resorted to reading with my flashlight to augment it. The bed and linens were nice. Main concern was the noise level--I could hear adjoining rooms when they used the commode and the young Asian couple enjoying themselves. Glad I didn't understand Chinese! LOL. Breakfast looked...

i have said normal because their is nothing much to brag about this place but its simplicity defines everything. Above all I like it because it is a budget hotel but its good for one time. For second visit i chose another one of the same kind.

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

It is good located BUT: 1. the bathroom is not very clean 2. leaking sink does not work, 3. toilet hoop was not fixed. 4. window closes hard and you hear all the noises from the street. 5. Half of the double bed was like a trough - unconfortable I do not recommend.

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

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
