Help? inside vs outside Sienna walls.

We have reservations pending and need help. We found nice sounding hotel (Arcobaleno) outside Siena "25 minute " walk to Piazza. My guess is the walk is uphill. Does anyone have experience with the walk (safety, curvy roads, traffic, etc). Reviews for hotels inside Siena walls seem mixed, and hotels are more expensive. We have 2 children (10 & 12) who are great hikers. Time might be a factor, and darkness at night after dinner in town. Dates - late March.

Arcobaleno hotel is actually outside the city walls, along the main street coming from north (Florence). It is well inside the town, anyway, but outside the historical centre. Porta Camollia (the northern gate of old town) is a 10-15 minute walk from there, along a pretty straightforward street, with sidewalks. No safety issues, and public lighting should be OK all along the way at night.

Thanks for your prompt reply. We're now also looking inside the gates at some b and b's--Palazzo Masi, Campo Regio Relais, and Residenza San Domenico.

Any input will be appreciated. Thanks!
