“A nice, memorable place to stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2012

We decided to go to Siena for the Palio horse race during our recent trip to Europe early this month. We was overjoyed when finally got one available triple room at Hotel Moderno because most of hotels in Siena were fully booked at that time. It took about ten minutes to get to the hotel from Siena train station by taxi. The hotel location was perfect. It was just across the escalator leading to the historic center. Our triple room was compact and clean. It had a window opening to a beautiful garden. The bathroom was small but clean. There was no mini bar, tea or coffee in our room. We stayed one night at Hotel Mederno. When we checked out the next morning we forgot to take our passports back from the hotel receptionist. We did not realize it until we arrived to Rome. The hotel staffs were very nice and helpful when we called them and told them about it. They sent our passports by courier to us immediately.What a nice, memorable experience we had in Siena.

We were very happy with Hotel Moderno in Siena. Some of the complaints I've seen on here would be valid at a fancier hotel, but when you are traveling on a tight budget I think it's important to be realistic in one's expectations. For 130 Euros a night ( which is a great price in Siena), I got a big, quiet room for 4 with a large bed for my husband and myself and 2 singles for my daughters.
The a/c was ice cold, which was a must in the middle of a heat wave. There was also a mini fridge in the room, which is a big plus. The room was a good size and perfectly clean, as was the bathroom. Yes, the bathroom was outdated, but again, this is to be expected on a budget.
Parking was free, and the location of the hotel right next to the escalator going into town was perfect. There was no in- room safe, but I just used the safe at the main desk.
The staff helped us park and unload our car upon arrival. They were also extremely helpful in giving us driving directions for road trips we took, down to suggesting both scenic routes and faster highway routes.
Also, we ate at the restaurant our last night there and it was actually quite good and well priced.
I would stay there again.

We stayed here to see Siena for a day. On the plus side they offered free parking right across from the hotel and the location is great to walk straight into Siena. It's in need of upgrades but for a night, it's fine.

The hotel is not modern anymore, but it is clean, the staff is helpfull, the breakfast is okay. Best of all: the location is perfect. you can go to the historic citycenter by escalator wich is in front of the hotel. You can park free in the street. Parking in the hotelgarage is 10 euros. Nearby also a parkingplace but this is expensive.

We stayed at the Moderno as we decided last minute to overnight in Siena and had no booking anywhere. Avoid if you are looking for somewhere nice as a couple, it has certainly seen better days and is anything but modern! However,the good points. It was cheap,parking was free,the front desk were very welcoming and offered us a good rate for the rooms,and the location was good. The 24 hour escalators up to the town centre are just across the street. The price we paid was a fraction of what the hotels right in the centre were charging,but we were only ten minutes walk away.
If I'm honest it wouldn't have been our first choice but we were tired and it had availability. It would certainly be a good choice if staying on a tighter budget or if arriving by car. And as much as the rooms were from a different era,they were spotlessly clean,and that is always a good thing.

It was quite difficult to find a hotel in Siena so when we found the Moderna we accepted it.
It is in a convenient location, just across the street from the escalators that take you up to the historic center. Free parking, breakfast not too bad.

Rooms are rather old, from your bedroom you can hear the shower running, toilets being flushed etc. Beds were very comfortable though and room rate was ok. You can't expect much for what we paid.

Room Tip: Ask for a room at the back, very noisy street.

While it is hard to find hotels in Sienna, particularly in August because of the Palio, this hotel is expensive for what you get. The location is decent and they do offer parking (at a fee) but the hotel has lost whatever charm it may have had 20-30 years ago. It is very outdated, not in the charming, old way that Italy has, but in a standards. The carpeting needs to be cleaned, changed and the bathrooms are atrocious- towels that feel like dishrags- water that seeps out everywhere-. And in the summer, the AC is not really AC but air that blows. This may have been a nice restaurant many, many years ago, and the pictures are somewhat deceiving. Moderno needs to get a new decorator and clean up their act. (or change their name- this is not moderno, its uglio)
