Was in Siena for three days. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this clean, comfy and centrally located hotel. Our room was large enough with great views overlooking the Cathedral. Plenty of storage for your clothes. Our breakfast buffet was excellent with a great many choices. The hotel staff was attentive and courteous. Communicating in English was not a problem like... More

Grand old hotel with a stunning modern glass atrium. Location is unmatched lending to instant access to the medieval streets of Siena. Our room had exposed wood beam ceilings and windows opening onto the streets below, yet rooms and bathroom were quite small. Don't be fooled by the brochures of this hotel; decorated walls and ceilings are all Trompe L'Oeil.

We spent two nights here in a lovely 2nd floor room overlooking the Cathedral. The room was very comfortable if I had to be picky (and with 5* hotels ii think you can be) the A/C could have got the room cooler, and the WI FI signal could have been better, But both worked and as we never mentioned them...

Booked superior junior suite with roof top terrace in August 2014. The roof top terrace is small with no view, only the stars. The bathroom was dated in need of renovation just not 5 star quality. The mattress was petrified, very old extremely dated and uncomfortable. The air conditioning was regulated by the hotel, too warm for August. All upholstery... More

This hotel is perfectly placed to explore Siena. It is essentially a converted palace and this has its pros and cons. The major public rooms are wonderful with frescos everywhere. Our room (a royal double) also had a frescoed ceiling and a lovely view across to the Duomo and the hills beyond. But there were significant weaknesses particularly given the... More

If you’re in Siena for Palio time, then this really is the perfect spot. Less than 5 minutes walk from the main piazza and all the action and still you can escape into the seclusion of this 5 star hotel to avoid the madness when you’ve had enough. As you’re inside the city, arriving can be a bit fraught and... More
