This hotel was perfectly located (could walk to everything easily); helpful staff (made good recommendations for dinner and reservations for one popular place for us); balcony lovely at night (views in Siena are not spectacular but it was still nice to have one); AC very good; WiFi free but you have to sign up daily for each device (not a problem but a little inconvenient). I would have rated it 5 stars BUT the bathroom was ridiculous. The fact that it was small was not the issue - it was that the shower was nothing more than a hole in the floor with a silly circular shower curtain that you really would NOT want to touch you - there is truly no excuse for this in a hotel that could spend the money (remove the bidet to make room for a small shower - I know it's Europe but I think most people would prefer to shower in a contained area rather than flooding the entire bathroom floor and then having to deal with slippery tiles and soaked towels on the floor in front of the toilet. I am not exaggerating - the shower was a spray head (not one you could take down either) and a hole in the bathroom floor directly in front of the toilet. Wouldn't care but the rooms weren't cheap - hard to believe even if it made a good story when we got home but I would choose another hotel if returning to Siena. Oh - be sure to plan carefully - there are horse races in August that would really impact the ability of a tourist to relax (crowds, etc.) and music students practice drums/other instruments loudly during the day but especially in the early evening - it was somewhat nice to hear but the hotel location really made this particular issue one that may be a problem for tourists who want to rest before the typically later dinner hour.
