We are enjoying a three night stay here, our room is very large, very good sized bathroom, a separate room with plenty of storage and a very large safe in fact the largest safe we have encountered during our travels, which is really handy when wanting to store camera equipment. The room is room 243 and there a the most... More

I had always wanted to try this hotel and this was a birthday treat. Lovely grand public rooms and high ceiling bedrooms. Staff were really friebdly and helful and there was complimentary prosecco for my birthday. The location is ideal for exploring siena. All the major sites are just minutes away on foot. The only drawback is that being city... More

I'm glad I chose this hotel for our first visit to this magnificent Italian city. The staff was incredibly helpful, the location within the walled city can't be better; breakfast was the best we've ever had as an included feature in any hotel we've known in Europe.This is, for sure, the place to stay in Siena.

We visited two nights last week. The location is incredible - on the Main Street in the city of Siena. Impressive views from our windows at every hour of the day. The staff was excellent in every respect- every person, every contact. The classic 5-star European hotel experience (except the shower pressure was stronger). Breakfast was copious and bountiful. We... More

My wife and I stayed here for four nights and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. It is a 'grand' hotel with large public spaces and high ceilings: the central atrium incorporating the chrome and glass lifts was a fine space to spend time in, and we did! Our room was spacious, perfectly clean and well-appointed. The heating was excellent. We had... More

PROS - location, 5 minutes walk from Piazza del Campo - great view from the second floor room in the back side CONS - room very small - unrequested wake up at 7,00 am because of the sound bells nearby - in the evening voices coming from the very narrow street were heard inside the room, notwithstanding the windows seemed...

The location of the hotel is excellent: few minutes of walk from Piazza Del Campo; in the middle of the city commercial area. Comfortable rooms with high ceiling. Strangely, the pictures on websites don't reflect the luxury of the rooms. Most importantly, the service. During our stay, the concierge gave us suggestions of great restaurants for all budgets. They could... More

A very quaint hotel in the middle of Siena. A great location close to shops and not a far walk from the Duomo. The staff seemed nice but they weren't very good at following up on requests or even getting the answers to questions. Breakfast was awful. Very few selections and the food was cold. We had to ask for... More

Beautiful, luxurious and with the best location. Service was great too, from breakfast to the concierge. We were upgraded when told we were on our honeymoon and they gave us great restaurant tips. Only annoying thing is that they charge for wifi!! Who does that anymore??
