We stayed a week here, and were well satisfied. The location is great, just outside the main core of central Siena, in a quiet neigbourood (the Contrada of the Snail). There is genuine character to the hotel because of the building's history. The cloistered entrance area is attractive and must be really handy in summer. he staircase is grand but defintely hard work. The breakfast room has interesting frescoes and beautiful views over the surrounding countryside. Our room (no 12) was big and high but always warm despite freezing weather, the bed was large and comfortable, bathroom excellent - it soes seem to matter which room you get. Staff were quiet, friendly and efficient - fitting in with the generally subdued atmosphere of the hotel. As you do not go through reception to get the rooms and use a card key, you see little of the staff anyway. Wifi (from the lounge not the rooms) was straightforward. Altogether a good choice of hotel base for us. There are plenty of eating opportunities in Siena, but if you do not want to go far, the Due Archi trattoria, a few yards away from the hotel, is as good as any similar place we tried.
