Located extremely close to San Domenico, as well as the hugely convenient Piazza Gramsci (loads of buses pick-up and drop-off here), this hotel/B&B is seriously amazing. We are a young couple, traveling on a budget and not only did we want to stay within the Siena walls but also near the area I used to live in. Residenza San Domenico... More

But for a few minor issues with one of our rooms we enjoyed our stay at Residenza San Domenico. We drove to Siena and navigating to the hotel was a challenge. They do not have parking so we had to get a free spot in the lot opposite the fortress about a 15 minute walk from the hotel. The other... More

The only negative thing about my stay at this amazing inn was not booking more than one night. My cousin and I had just arrived from Vernazza taking three trains and a cab, and were exhausted from travel. We knew we had arrived the moment we entered from the street...this place has real character. The lady who registered us was... More

We chose San Domenico because of its location and we had stayed there before. On our previous visit it was just self catering and frankly it was not a lot different this time. If you are expecting a real B & B with fresh breakfast served every morning you will be disappointed. Breakfast consists of a selection of packaged items... More

I got dropped off by the taxi and couldn't see where the hotel was but after waking down the street and speaking to another hotel he advised to check out the buzzers and that I'm not the only person to not know that the hotel is behind these massive wooden doors! Stayed for 4 nights and the location is brilliant... More

We stayed at the San Domenico for three nights. Siena is an amazing city and is not to be missed. While the location of this hotel is great, they desperately need to remodel their bathrooms. The bathroom flooded multiple times and it made it terrible to shower. Our friends stayed down the hall and had the exact same issues. While... More

We were an easy walk from the bus station, and the two main attractions for us, the Duomo of Siena and the gigantic Piazza Il Campo. We wanted to see them by day and by night. Little did we know that one of the most breathtaking views of the beautiful Duomo would be from our hotel window. Daniella and Claudio... More

My huisband and I atyed there for 2 nights on our honeymoon. The rooms were clean and comfortable. The view from our room was beautiful! There is an espresso maker in your room for coffee in the morning. There is also a "kitchenette" in one of the closets, which was nice. We were able to make dinner and a good... More

My family stayed for two nights. We were in a quad room facing Via della Sapienza. The property is in a convenient location and a short walk from the bus terminal. The property is within a building that also contains various offices and perhaps other residences. You buzz to enter into a dark and somewhat uninviting space, then walk up... More

We had booked a room and paid a deposit 2 months out from our visit to Siena. When we arrived we waited for over half an hour and then had to speak to someone over the phone (as the receptionist spoke no English) who told us they had double booked and there were no rooms. There were lots of people... More
