Reviewed January 19, 2012

This was a lovely hotel. The multi-lingual staff was so helpful. The room was spartan, but it had everything we needed. My friend and I had a great time. The proximity to St. Catherine's sanctuary, a couple of great restaurants, and San Domenico make it a great place to stay.

Lovely hotel to stay for a short period, basic but very clean with an amazing view over Siena from the balcony. Staff were very friendly. Would definetly stay here again when in Siena.

For 40 euros a night you get a decent size private room with private shower and your own (small) balcony facing the town. Staff was helpful in recommending free parking and places to eat. An authentic Siena experience I would say! Paid Wifi.

Room Tip: The top floor (4th?) can see the Siena town.

We went to this small hotel by accided, because we had a problem with our reservation for the hotel where we intended to stay. Everything was full in Siena, so we give a try to this one, as we've been told that it was run by nuns. It was an excellent choice: very good location, pleasant staff and spacious rooms. Of course it was no-frills, but we found our room clean, spacious and with a marvellous view to the Duomo. The bathroom was also inside the room, being a plus. At night, we could hear man singing opera in the street, so it was quite beautiful. The breakfast is excellent, with fresh croissants and delicious food. Wifi is paid.
In 5 minutes walking you are near restaurants and the "centro storico". As Siena train station is out of the city walls, it takes about 30min to walk there.

Our memorable night in Siena was enhanced by our stay at Alma Domus. The room was clean and the staff was friendly. But it was the view from the balcony and the smell of croissants in the morning that I will remember most. For a pair of budget travelers this was somewhat of a splurge at 75 Euros a night, but it was worth it.

Room Tip: Get a room with a view of the duomo

We spent three nights here in October, 2011. Though not fancy, our room was clean, large and adequate. We were greeted by Giorgio - English speaking and very welcoming. The breakfast room was beautiful and provided a very nice relaxing breakfast. Walking distance to Il Campo and all the main attractions with restaurants closeby. We were very satisfied and would stay here again.

Room Tip: We asked for a room with a view and were lucky to get one. When we opened the doors to our small ba...

I went in this hotel following the suggestions on this website.
The man on the front desk is a bit rude but this is not important for me.
I get the key and once in the corridor I realize the real level of this hotel.
The door of the room is so thin that you can hear the conversation in the other rooms from the corridor.
The bathroom is poor and the shower not so clean.
The room is completely emty.
The next day I leave to change hotel.

This hotel can offer you only a beatiful view. That's all.

As regard the price: it is quite low to be in Siena but, really close to this, I found another hotel that for 10€ more per night offered me a real service and a beatiful room.

I would like to say that it has been the first and the only time, but in this case the average score of trip advisor is completely far from the reality.

Sig. Matteo p. Le scrivo in italiano perchè Lei è un italiano che scrive in inglese perchè pensa di danneggiarci un pò di più. Lei ha scritto solo sciocchezze perchè è rimasto in hotel solo 2 ore, e la compagna che l'ha raggiunto successivamente, solo 10 minuti; Lei semplicemente pretendeva di non dover pagare la camera ma purtroppo per Lei il ns non è un albergo ad ore. Quindi, in ordine: non è andato via il giorno seguente, quindi il suo sonno non è stato disturbato da nessuno, etc quindi tutto falso. Le persone che leggono le review non sono così stupide come Lei pensa e spero che il trip advisor cancelli le review palesemente sospette.
