Very high quality, spacious, modern hotel room and furnishings. Very nice shower. The location was good even though not right on the city center. The walk to the main plaza was no more than 10 minutes even though one of us had knee pain. We were there only one night and did not eat at the hotel since we wanted to have our one dinner on the plaza.

Dear Larry, Thank you so much for your lovely review. While we're not located at the center of mass of Siena the Hotel, being inside the medieval walls, is in the city centre. And, as you said, Piazza del Campo is only a few minutes walk. Please come back soon, and consider having dinner in our Mangia Restaurant; we can confidently say that the food is top quality, our chef is truly dedicated to her craft and she only uses local ingredients. Best regards, the Staff.

Old building with rustic feel in a cute town. Check in was friendly and helfpul . they were able to accomodate parking a huge van adjacent to the building for free. Breakfast was buffet style. Limited options and overall poor quality. Views were nice Bathrooms inconvenient. Toilet positioning is challenging to access Bed was comfortable. Air conditioning not available off season. Not at all handicap friendly. Although elevator is present, multiple split levels on floor requiring stairs.

Dear sir/madame. We think you've been too harsh and unfair with your vote. You listed many of our virtues yet you punished us for things that are either not really the case or could have been solved by just asking the reception or the restaurant staff: We dispute that our breakfast is of poor quality, every single ingredient comes from local producers and is prepared with the utmost care by our chef. As for the limited options: that is also not the case, apart from the food on display the kitchen is operative and quite able to prepare many more meals even during breakfast. As for "multiple split levels on floor requiring stairs", that is simply not the case. If you are referring to the breakfast room we ask our guests to access it using the stairs due to covid restrictions, but of course we are more than willing to make an exception for guests with disabilties. Regards, The Staff.

This hotel is ok because of car parking and roof terrasse with nice view. Because we arrived late and had been driving we dident want to go out for dinner, but we wish we did. Either the breakfast or dinner was something extraordinary. The room was ok, but not very up to date.

Dear Sir/Madame, Thank you for leaving us a review. It's regrettable that you left us such a low score, we're used to receive much higher ones. And it's unfortunate you didn't find the room to be of your liking, being in a historical town we must follow strict canons; of course all our rooms have all the comforts of a four star Hotel. As for the Restaurant: it offers a wide selection of dishes, each prepared with the utmost care exclusively with local ingredients... we're wondering why you did not find it to your liking, is there something specific you expecter from breakfast or dinner? Best regards. The Staff.

Perfect views , great location in Siena, right outside the center so easy to get to by car. Parking lot a little tight but what else is new in Italy. Good service, clean large rooms. Great central location of you plan to travel Tuscany.

Dear Anthony, Thank you for your amazing review! I think you went over our major virtues: the location in the City Centre, we're just outside the ZTL and walking distance to all the major points of interests here. The view of the famed Tuscan hills. Hoping to see you soon again, Kindest regards. The Staff.

We had a nice three night stay at the hotel Athena. Our large executive room was spacious with a great view. The hotel staff was friendly and accommodating. From a location perspective the hotel is a ten minute walk away from the Piazza Del Campo. The breakfast spread included eggs, bacon, cereal, yogurt, and an assortment of pastries. Complimentary parking is included at the hotel.

Dear Anthony, Thank you so much for your words. Indeed the Hotel is only a few minutes walk from Piazza del Campo, we're glad you mentioned that. The breakfast is made with care and only using local ingredients by the Mangia Restaurant staff, we do offer the continental version as well as a more typical Italian breakfast. Parking and valet service is always included. Come back soon! Kindest regards. The Staff.
