We spent a quick couple of days in Siena, and really enjoyed our stay at the Hotel Athena. Had a large, comfortable room on the southeast side of the property, looking toward vineyards, mountains and even a castle in the distance, a remarkable view. Breakfast at the hotel was also very good, wide variety, nice room. Desk staff was very helpful with information and suggestions for dining, etc. Also, and most importantly for some, the value was excellent, far better than we found at other hotels. We will absolutely return for a second visit-- and Siena itself, FASCINATING!!!
