“Hotel Arcobaleno, Siena, Italy”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 13, 2012

Very nice, friendly, small hotel. I stayed here in early January. Very tempted to return in the warmer months and take more of the whole area in. Very friendly reception personnel at check in, and check out.

Rooms are not very big, and almost spartan, however there is a good feel to this hotel, and I would like to return for pleasure next time as the location is good, and the conservatories and outdoor seating on the terrace look very attractive.

Room Tip: rooms at the back of the hotel have anice view. Looking out of the window, Siena is to the right. Go...

Arcobaleno is a small charming hotel. The personell is very forthcoming and always there for you to prepare a good Italian cappuccino, to recommend a good restaurant and to help with any requests you may have and thus make you feel home.

The rooms are comfortable and very clean and their style suits well to the local atmosphere.
You can have a very good breakfast with fresh croissants and pastries in a nice breakfast room.

The walking distance to the town center is about 15 to 20 minutes and you can also order a taxi that will take you there within less than 5 minutes.
I have stayed at the hotel many times during my business trips and I have always enjoyed it.

Great staff the hotel is small rooms are very simple but clean with comfortable beds. If you are there for work it is a nice place to stay a night or 2.

I join the Arcobaleno Hotel every week (at least 2 nights)during the last year for business. I found it very comfortable with a friendly and effective staff that do every time the best to be compliant with any requirements (from a suggestion on a restaurant to call a taxi or giving some useful suggestion to live Siena in full). The rooms are clean and well-furnished Claudia and Laura will take care of you with a lovely breakfast with some different " sweet thoughts" that you can taste on their wonderful balcony in front of the Sienna hills. The hotel position is pretty good, it is located in mid between the Sienna train station and the bus stop for Florence, the down town is not so far and you can reach some different and good restaurant at 5 minutes walking at max.

Room Tip: ask to stay in the main building.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2011

We stayed here for 3 nights in Oct 2011. We were travelling by train which is located half way between the city and the hotel.

The hotel was comfortable and clean, with friendly staff and a reasonable breakfast. Ample parking for travellers with a car. Out of town, therefore quiet and a place to get a good nights sleep.

There are a couple of bars on the way from the city to the town but not a great walk which was about 20 mins to the city walls. We did however get used to the walk, and there were plently of buses or taxis if your prefer.

There was a lack of general info e.g. we had no idea about where to eat and booking.com states that "in the neighbourhood... there is also a public swimming pool and tennis courts." but there was no details in the rooms about these or any other facilities.

Found a good Pizza place 5 mins from the hotel (turn right on the main road) the Jolly Pizzeria, they also did take aways.

Laura and the rest of the staff couldn't have been nicer or more helpful. The hotel is well taken care of. Breakfast was lovely. Two things that need to be noted are that there is no elevator (keep this in mind for your luggage!) and the distance from the city wall is about a 20 min. walk. The walk is fine, but then you spend hours walking around city centre. The bus is only a 5 min. walk so that's a big help. However, a solo female traveller doesn't have the option of trying different restaurants in walking distance. The restaurant beside the hotel though, is excellent.

Our stay was made even more enjoyable by Claudia who went out of her way to help us. We originally were going to stay for one night only but enjoyed it so much we made it our base for the next 3 days. Florence was easily accessible with a bus stop just 5 minutes walk from the hotel and taking just one hour traveling through the Tuscan countryside. Good sized and clean rooms with comfortable beds. Sienna Old Town is just a short walk of 10 to 15 minutes away. Breakfast was a treat looking out over the flower gardens and the Sienna hills.
