We recently stayed here with a group of 9 people. We upgraded our room to a balcony room overlooking the Tuscan countryside. All of our friends standard rooms were very nice, but the balcony room was terrific!! Nice outside area to enjoy late evening wine and snacks with friends!! The staff was amazing! Very helpful, friendly, and courteous. Everyone spoke... More

Hotel was fine, especially if the room you select is on the seventh floor. Have a big problem with the valet parking however. I came to check out en route for Milan, bill paid but my car keys were not returned. I asked politely for them and then the bomb dropped! No car keys! The valet parking had managed to... More

We stayed here for one night during the Palio race festivities in August 2014. The staff were super friendly, eager to help and spoke perfect English. The hotel was just a short walk to Piazza del Campo. The room came with complimentary wine, water, fruit and biscotti which was a nice touch. The breakfast buffet was reasonably priced and had...

Mary and I stayed here for three nights and were extremely happy with everything about this hotel. From the moment we arrived there was a very pleasant young man of Indian origins who parked our car and showed us the way to reception. Considering that there is limited parking in Sienna, there was always space in the hotel for our... More

This hotel is inside the city walls and has plenty of parking. This parking itself is potentially a little tricky but the staff are obviously well used to making it work and have cameras at reception to keep an eye on things. We had a spacious room with a small balcony overlooking the hills; a great place to sit and... More

I stayed at this hotel for only one night on our trip in Toscana. Excellent location (5 minutes away by foot from city center!), good infrastructure, clean and spacy room, complete breakfast offer (for Italian average). Good welcome and service. Since they have quite narrow parking spaces, you are asked to leave car keys at reception, which I didnt want... More

booking a hotel online is sometimes a hit and miss affair. However, we were delighted with our choice. The reception staff were very friendly and helpful. Rooms were lovely and the breakfast above average for Italy. There are tea/coffee making facilities in the room and a Safe. They even put a complimentary bottle of wine (with opener).

We traveled here for 2 nights with kids and had a wonderful stay. The hotel is clean and comfortable and a short 5-10 minute walk to all sights. Breakfast was good and there is a rooftop terrace overlooking beautiful Tuscany which we visited several times. The staff were very helpful and attentive and arranged for dinner at wonderful restaurants. This... More

We enjoyed this hotel for its amazing view and location. The folks who run it were all so nice and welcoming. We felt like they were all ambassadors of this great town, and they really cared that we enjoyed our visit. (We did!)
