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

We've just come back from 3 nights in Siena, this hotel was just the job for a short stay. It is a budget hotel, has a very traditional feel. Yes! It needs a refurb, everything is very dated and used but our room was spotless, bedding and towels were spotless too. The only bad thing I have to say is... More

Did not pre-view this hotel, it was bundled in with a select travel package. My first impressions were how quaint, until I walked into our room and almost vomited from the smell. The shower was covered in mold. The lack of upkeep is its downfall because of it great location to the city center and the charm of the structure... More

This hotel is a few hundred metres from the bus terminus at Gramsci Piazza and a short walk from Piazza del Campo the historic and cultural centre of Siena. The railway station is some distance away, about 20 to 30 mins by bus depending on traffic conditions. It is a convenient, budget hotel for one or two nights. The rooms... More

I was a guest of this property for just two days during a business trip and really had a comfortable stay. Staring with location of the building to the bed in my room, everything was of my choice. Property is very clean and artistically decorated. Rooms are designed according to the need of travelers. Washroom was big and functional. Food... More

This is an excellent place to stay at the historical center of Siena and the price is really good. The staff were really friendly and helpful. The room was clean and decorated with authentic furnitures. At the reception were Contrada flags, pitures from the Palio and comfortable area to take a rest and make some pictures (with the flags).

Please, please ignore the bad reviews for this hotel. I am really not sure where these people have been but evidently not the same place as me and my partner. Firstly the price is reasonable, especially so for a charming historic building in a wonderful city like Siena. The staff were friendly at all times and seemed to appreciate that... More
