Wifi is only available in the lobby. The staff are nice but the place looks more run down and decrepit than historic and atmospheric. The bathroom was well equipped but the hairdryer didn't work, and there were a lot of hairs on the bed cover which was rather disgusting, it wouldn't hurt to use a vacuum cleaner on them.

There is a lot about this hotel that makes it stand out. The building is an old Monastery, very interesting and the public areas are lovely, with a beautiful outside courtyard where breakfast is served in summer, and lovely for sitting in the sunshine during the day. Very peaceful. Now the not so goods. Choice of room is important. We... More

While the young staff was polite, their lack of training/resources and shabby dorm like hotel was more like what you would expect from a hostel. The bathroom electricity worked in only one of the two rooms we rented, so we were asked to share the bathroom of the 2nd room. We requested laundry service which came back a ball of... More

We stayed at the hotel on a group tour, so the nightly price of the room and parking were not issues for us. However, the room we had was extremely small; a queen bed would have been preferable to the king, allowing more walking room. Lighting was insufficient, and there were long wires from the lamp and phone across walking... More

We had a so called de luxe room for two nights at the hotel. I have never had a more worse room ever. We payed a lot for(considering what we got): AC that did not work properly. It was noisy and it was very humid in the room. In additon it was a mouldy smell in the room. I am... More

We had a "deluxe room" with a terrace together with all the pigeons . The room was poorly cleaned, the AC not working properly, mouldy scent in the room, the refrigerator not getting cold, the wifi partly worked from a bench in the lobby but nowhere else. Parking is 15 euros per night a short walk away. The monastary certainly... More

From our oversized room we had a wonderful panoramic view of the Tuscan countryside. We found the staff very friendly and looking for ways to go out of their way to help us. There is a historic old charm to every room, especially the breakfast area, courtyard and our room. We found the entire experience memorable and would gladly stay... More

We stayed here for 3 nights during a tour of Tuscany and were very much looking forward to it as had been recommended both Siena and this hotel by friends. However this place more than exceeded our expectations. From the moment you walk through the main entrance - it is very much in keeping with Siena itself and of it's... More

Stayed only 1 night, wish we would have had more time. Very quaint hotel within easy walking distance of the center of Siena. Driving and parking is a bit of a challenge, but the hotel was very helpful getting us parked and unloaded. Our room was spacious (the bath was a bit small, but very adequate) and beautifully decorated. Very... More

I have just stayed three nights in this lovely hotel, which for under $150 per night in a quite expensive location, was an excellent value. My room and bath were indeed very spacious, and was told that all of the 29 or so rooms are laid out differently - definitely not a chain motel! My room was adequate enough, except... More
