Great location, wonderful staff, very accommodating. We had a great room with a view. Yes, I would stay here again, and I would recommend it. Once we found it, it was a great location, very comfortable.

After traveling through Europe for the past 5 months, this was one of the only hotels with FREE PARKING! The location of the hotel is inside of the city wall and very easy to access if you are driving. The streets are narrow but thankfully you don't have to drive down "pedestrian only" streets to get to the easy accessible parking garage/lot.

Once we got into the hotel we were pleasantly surprised with the friendly staff and large, spacious rooms. The hotel is just a 5 minute walk to the Duomo and city center. It's a little of an uphill walk to and from, but really everywhere in Siena has hills. The location is nice because you are in a quiet part of the city and can leave your window open at night. but I will say the walls are a tad thin so just cross your finger you don't have noisy neighbors.

Overall, I would definitely be back to stay at this hotel when we visit Siena again.

Only stayed one night on a long weekend and despite being fully booked out, the staff were very friendly and welcoming. We hired a car and the hotel was little hard to find as it is inside the city walls. Very close to the old city centre and we were able to leave our car in the hotel car park for the entire day after checking out. Excellent wifi and breakfast was good. Extensive view from our very roomy 8th floor room.

Hotel Athena is a nicely located hotel just inside the city walls, but you are still able to park your car there without entering the restricted zone. Very useful for people who wish to explore the countryside with their own transport.
Service is excellent, friendly and prompt. All the staff are able to converse fluently in English.
We had a room with a very decent view on the 7th floor.
Room was very comfortable, quiet and spacious, and with a nice bathtub.
Breakfast spread was more than adequate.
Highly recommended!

A very nice hotel just inside the city wall. Easy off and on the highway once you figure out the exit and road pattern. We rented a car and were able to easily take some side trips around the Tuscany countryside. If you are up for walking you can see the sites in town and access some great restaurants on foot. The terrain in town can be steep at times so be aware. The terrace bar was great with a wonderful view. Our room was on the same floor (7) and was spacious enough, clean and comfortable. Very nice lobby and breakfast dining room. We did not eat dinner in the hotel restaurant. The staff were very polite and very helpful. They even parked our car if we couldn't find a spot in the hotel lot. Very satisfied with our 5 day stay.

Room Tip: Stay on the upper floors.

Wonderful hotel in a good position to get into Siena for the restaurants and tourist attractions. Secure parking, but really difficult to find hotel unless you find the correct "gate" into the city. Got a complimentary upgrade to 8th floor, lovely room facing north east with a large balcony. WiFi worked well. Stayed 3 nights and ate out in restaurants suggested by reception, they were excellent. Nice bar area, though we took our drinks to the upper reception area where there were sofas, newspapers etc. Great open terrace on 7th floor, though we didn't use it as in December it was a bit chilly in the evenings. Breakfast on the 3rd floor was extensive and fresh. All staff were friendly and helpful at all times.

Room Tip: Seemed quiet in all areas. Ask for rooms away from lifts.

Green Features: The usual: leave towels on floor if you want new ones.

The hotel was situated within the old city walls and was larger than expected... We entered via the hotel's secure parking area below the hotel. We took 1 of 3 elevators (lucky as we had several bags and we could not find a hotel concierge) to the reception floor. The check-in staff were extremely helpful and the process quick and efficient. The room was better than that of some 5 star hotels. It was spacious, well appointed, clean, comfy bed. The bathroom equally as good. Our floor level was however quite low, actually lower than street level, almost basement level and the room window was obscured by the street. The hotel's breakfast was excellent with a vast variety of food. We could have easily stayed a few more days at this hotel!

Room Tip: Ask for a room on a higher level and you might get a room with a view...

Wow thanks for your beautiful words an Italian gem I think suit us very well , considering our free car park in the premises , and only 5 minutes away from the city center , while you are saying that we are better than some of 5 stars hotels make us so proud it means that we are doing a great job to satisfy our clients , and many thanks form my colleagues from the restaurant because the breakfast is great indeed and with a great choice of cold and hot dishes , I would like to tell you to come again and try one of our deluxe room on the top floor with a great view over the Tuscan landscape , thanks again and see you soon
