“basic, comfortable, clean”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 3, 2013

A basic hotel, convenient with lots of comfortable sitting areas to visit and chat in so you were not confined to your room. rooftop terrace with views to die for. Perfect summer location. Breakfast was good, service excellent, the place was spotless. an attentive staff that went out of their way to be helpful.

The view from my pillow was out the window to the top of the Duomo! That could not have been better. The staff were very helpful with everything from restaurant suggestions to getting my clean clothes back! I had washed a pair of pants and put them in the window to dry. The wind caught them and they got stuck on a shutter a couple of floors below. Paulo was able to retrieve them with a long pole from his aunt's back yard. Needless to say my travel companions were VERY amused and I was most appreciative!

The hotel was close to all of the sights. Rooms were very clean. Showers were a little odd, it and the toilet shared a common space.

The staff were very helpful and very nice. I would stay there again.

We were quests at Hotel Duomo for 6 nights in November 2012. Hotel Duomo turned out to be just what we had hoped for! Its location is Siena - just next door to the Duomo was perfect as the whole old city was at walking distance from te hotel. Another advanage of its location was the fact that there are many good restaurants in the vicinity -just a few paces from the hotel. Our rooms were very comfortable with a lovely view of Siena, were kept perfectly clean and the reception desk was extremely helpful with every injuiry and question we had. We felt very much at home and amongst friends.

The Cadogan "Tuscany" guide curiously rates this hotel as very expensive. It isn't, tho we did get a special offer. Indeed it's quite cheap, we thought. The view from the window of our room (44) was luminous with the sun shining on the jumble of houses going up a hill and the dome and tower of the duomo rising above it. The room was good sized tho very plain. We once stayed in a perfectly ordinary hotel in Trento which became memorable for me, and where I intend to revisit, because they had reproduced on one wall a secular fresco from the Bishop's palace. It's a simple way to make a room memorable and certainly Siena with its wonderful frescos would lend itself to the same treatment.

As is common with less expensive hotels, it lacks much common space. The breakfast room is not accessible for the very disabled (Siena would not be a good place, anyway, for those with disabilities.) Staff were friendly and efficient, breakfast copious tho rather boring, good internet.

Room Tip: The lift only goes to the first floor.

If you're planning a vacation to Siena, I would definitely recommend Hotel Duomo. Whenever I'm on vacation, I always think the hotel's price for a given location is the number 1 factor. And on that scale, Hotel Duomo is great. A five minute walk from Il Camp and from the Piazza del Duomo, there's not much to dislike about the location. We took a bus to Siena from Florence, and the cab ride to the hotel was only about 10 Euro. And, in hindsight, would only have been about a 10 minute walk. Really the location could not have been better, and the rate we got I thought was low, so it seemed a very good value.

The hotel itself is pretty basic but is everything you'd need. The rooms were clean. Ours had a fantastic view out the back of the hotel to the Duomo. The hotel was quiet. They had in room free wifi, which was the best wifi signal of any hotel we stayed at in our 2 weeks in Italy.

The room itself was a little small, but it was fine for just myself and my wife, and we spent very little time actually in the room.

The breakfast was pretty basic but OK. There was no hot food, but they had a selection of meats, cheeses, rolls, cereals, and other cold items. They do not have a restaurant on site, but there are a number of places to eat within walking distance.

Everyone working at the hotel was very pleasant, although we did not make any difficult or unusual requests of them.

All in all it was a nice place to stay for a couple nights on vacation when your main focus is sightseeing, and I would definitely recommend it.

My husband and I stayed at the Hotel Duomo for four nights in October. The hotel is situated perfectly, just a short distance from the town square and an easy place to explore Siena. We had a 3rd floor suite that looked out to the town of Siena and gave a view of the Duomo, with a view below of a lovely Grotto. The large bathroom and spacious room was bright and decorated in a soft, relaxing green. The small table and chairs afforded a restful place to relax with a beautiful view. "Tony" at the front desk was most helpful, spoke excellent English, and overall treated us as "special guests". Alexandro (the manager) was also very helpful and gave us special service, including providing china, glasses, and silverware so we could have a "picnic" on their rooftop patio (don't miss it for the daytime views and the evening sunsets!). We loved their breakfast, especially the made to order expresso or cappucino, the fresh fruit, and wonderful pastries. Since we had four nights, we took advantage of the local laundry service, and were pleased to have our laundry returned as promised and looking great, a pleasure half way through our Italy trip. Don't miss the Trattoria, on the left as you exit the hotel, just a few steps from the hotel. Excellent food and service, with reasonable prices. - Theresa and Ken-Colorado USA

Room Tip: Ask for a larger room with full length windows for the best views of the Duomo and town.
