Our two-night stay was perfect! The hotel staff couldn't have been nicer, from the valet who helped us with our bags from the parking lot, to the front desk staff, to the bellboy/bartender, everyone was there to please. We went to Siena the weekend after Christmas so the town was buzzing and the hotel seemed fairly full. Our room was on the 8th floor, as we booked a balcony room. We didn't really need a balcony after all because there wasn't much view on the side of the hotel with the terraces - though we did get a nice nighttime view of the top of the Duomo all lit up. Our room was darling, plenty spacious for my husband and me, with a nice bathroom, we couldn't have been happier. The included breakfast was decent in a nice bright breakfast room on the parking level. There is a good sized terrace on the 7th floor, that has several tables and bar service for the warmer months, that has a lovely view of the valley. The bar in the back of the lobby area was spacious and well stocked (very tasty to have an evening glass of Prosecco). As I mentioned the staff was very helpful and they gave us good restaurant recommendations. And the lobby had such a pleasant scent - they were showcasing local products, including a fragrance called "Aqua D'Alba" that made the first floor smell so nice. I so enjoyed it that I went to the store to take some home with me, they gave Hotel Athena guests a free gift! The hotel wi-fi worked great and the walk "in to town" was a nice 10 minute stroll. We would definitely stay at the Hotel Athena again.
