The location is perfect - very close to the Piazza and Duomo. We paid 80 euro per night for a very small room (no. 16) with a tiny bathroom. The bed was comfortable, the room warm and the water hot. The problem we had was that our room (along with a few others) was immediately above a bar. This is fine if you're planning a late, boozey night. Further, the room was above a lane connected to a square so other noises started very early and finished very late. People use the lane to get around at all hours and they don't keep their voices down. The hotel was expensive for what you get but I really can't understand why you would stay outside the walls of Siena. We're travelling on a budget however there was no question that we'd spend a little more to stay in the old town. That said, there are other hotels close to La Perla. It would be worth checking out their rates or asking reception at La Perla for a room not above the lane. There is no breakfast included and wi-fi is available for a fee. I recommend this hotel mainly because it's very cheap for Siena.
