This place is beyond dreadful. I booked because I was charmed by the notion of a historic former monastery and it supposedly had parking. I have stayed in quirky old properties before. This was not in that category. It was dirty. There was only one power outlet, which was already occupied by the clock. The shower consisted of a drain... More

We stayed 6 nights; staff friendly, good breakfast, great coffee. We got the infamous bathroom with shower/toillet together (common in small albergos in Italy). We requested another room without a problem we were changed to the one next to the front desk, clean, good size, tile floor but no mirror in the room, with a window facing the Piazza. If... More

50-75m or so from the major bus plaza, approx 7-10 min walk to the main square the heart of Siena, the convenience and friendly help from the staff more than make up for any complaints about noise (i admit-noise=action...). Happy to have a breakfast before setting out each day. All the buses go here, can get anywhere, walk all around... More

A very nice hotel with an excellent location. Within 10 minutes you can reach every place of interest. The hotel offer all kind of services you need for your stay in Siena. The breakfast was very good. We also loved the noise around the hotel - the noise gave us the feeling of being in the heart of ITALY. At... More

We liked this hotel - easy to find (we drove). Free parking a few blocks away. Right inside the city walls - very charming at night. The room was a bit small, but comfortable. The bathroom was quite small, especially the shower area but we worked it out. Great central location to do day trips to other parts of Tuscany.... More

We booked this hotel for one night, it was cheap in comparison to other hotel accommodation in Siena. The hotel in general was tired, worn out, depressing and dark. The carpets in the hotel were dreadful and it smelt of stale cigarettes. That said it was as clean as possible. Our room had its own toilet, sink and shower, however... More

A quite simple and a bit worn down. But considering the price and the good location, both me and my wife considered this a bargain. Breakfast was simple but OK. If you look for something fancy and are anoyed by a worn carpet I suggest you keep looking, but if you only need a place to sleep I'd recommend it.... More

We booked the stay via Lastminute.com a few days prior to arrival and when we got to the hotel were pleased with the welcome. The reception seemed a bit shabby but otherwise homely. The lift was a slightly worrying and shaky experience, the stairs and landings were filthy, threadbare and a cleaner's cart were left in the corridor outside our... More
