Stayed there in May on a wine tour of the Tuscan region. This hotel has a lot of old Italian charm, feels like a Italian palace and is wonderfully located in the heart of Sienna. The staff are wonderful and very friendly and helpful. The old negative is that the air conditioning is a bit loud. Otherwise great stay. Best... More

...are too small, and a strange (and not pleasant) smell stagnates in the hall and corridors. Rooms soundproofing is weak, the voices of all people walking on main road are hearable, even with windows and curtains completely shut. Classic room are aging, very small, not usually expected in a 5*L hotel. Wifi in the room is weak, not always easy... More

Great location, very nice staff, decent breakfast, great bed and linens, clean. BUT the wi-fi problems were so frustrating and not worthy of the hotel. Would be hard pressed to give it more than an average recommendation.

The hotel is situated perfectly; quiet and peaceful, away from any traffic noise and within a short stroll of all the wonderful art treasures of Siena, It is an old city and the hotel is on top of the hill, so inevitably there is a climb back to it up cobbled streets, all of which adds to the charm, but...

This is a luxurious hotel in a great location in Siena, no more than 2 minutes walk to the Piazza de Campo. Rooms are very spacious on Europe standards. The head concierge is Nabil and he can't do enough for his guests. Highly recommended if you want to splurge in Siena.

This stunning hotel in the heart of Tuscany was a great home base for our three days in the region. The hotel is located in the center of the old walled city, and sits across from a small stunning piazza especially when it is lit at night. Our room looked directly into the square and with easily 20 foot soaring... More

Stayed here for two nights last week and could not be more pleased! Beautiful hotel, large, exquisitely appointed room, delicious breakfast, unbelievable service.

This is a beautiful old world hotel, which is incredibly well located, immediately opposite Monte dei Paschi and 2 minutes walk from the Palio. The inside have been stunningly well preserved and modern additions (a lift) fit in beautifully. The room themselves are somewhat small, but one could swing a cat in them. The bathrooms are somewhat dated, if functional.... More
