We took the bus from Rome to Siena and then took a local bus to Hotel Santa Caterina. As we opened the door to our room, I was instantly sure that we had made the best choice! The room was a loft (the bed was upstairs with a small sitting room downstairs). The wood beamed ceilings and large bay window made the space feel so charming and cozy. The view from the window was unbelievable! It was totally the "Under the Tuscan Sun" image that I had in my head and I couldn't believe that we had found such spectacular accommodations at a great price. (We were there in January, which is the low season.)
The hotel is a short walk from the center town of Siena. Staying outside of the city walls wasn't a problem at all and you certainly don't need a car unless you plan to travel through other parts of Tuscany. We stayed there for 3 days and already booked a wine tour for one of the days, so there was no need to rent a car.
I certainly plan to return to Siena in the future and will definitely stay at Hotel Santa Caterina again! My only regret was that we didn't stay there longer.
