Hotel Santa Caterina
Ranked #6 of 40 Hotels in Siena
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed January 10, 2013

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.

This was our first visit to Siena and we drove in ,we should of had a gps so it took a long time to find the hotel and parking was a challenge to navigate into.. Once we found the hotel-do not drive through Sienna old town ,it is spaghetti lanes with no rules- we parked in the secure parking (15 euros a day extra), The wonderful concierge took our bags to our room and made us very welcome. The room had a comfortable bed, shuttered windows, very warm, with under floor tile heating and quaint , simple decor. Being right on the road we were initially concerned about noise, but the night was quiet. The bathroom had a bath with shower over and was a decent size. Breakfast was simple; cereal,pastries with condiments and fruit in the lovely conservatorium overlooking the beautiful garden. Staff we helpful and friendly, they gave us a Sienna guide book and it was a very short walk right to the heart of the walled centre of town. Take their advice and walk down the road to their suggested restaurant, fabulous food at good prices. A reasonably priced hotel with good amenities and very nice staff.

After driving from Florence through Tuscany, we arrived in Siena a bit tired and drained. Arriving in town, we didn't know what to expect so we were a bit taken aback to discover that Siena, outside the walled fortress, was a bustling little town. The traffic and winding city roads disoriented us a bit so we decided to find a hotel. After driving a couple hours around town and being turned down due to no vacancies, we were growing frustrated and a bit anxious. In the dark, we stumbled upon the Hotel Santa Catarina. We really had no idea how close it was to the walled town of Siena.
Stepping inside was a cozy bricked Tuscan lobby. The helpful host let us know there was a room and even included parking for our rental, and a breakfast buffet. The rate was very reasonable so we took it.
Walking into our room, we were amazed to find out how clean it was and how spacious. It was a loft and the bedroom was upstairs. We really had to double-take on the rate since it was one of the cheapest during our trip through Italy.
A grocery store was nearby so we bought a bottle of wine and sat out on the terrace in the warm night.
The next day, we found out we were only a 10 minute walk to one of the gates into Siena. This really turned out to be one of the biggest surprises of our two week trip.

We felt at home right away. Our room & bathroom were very nice and clean. We had a great view from our large window of the surrounding countryside & beautiful views of the sunset. Easy walking distance,The hotel staff went out of their way to be helpful. Breakfast was great! We got a good deal on the rate. We'd go back in a heartbeat!

This was our first stay in this very charming hotel and in Siena for my family. The property has great charm and warmth. The garden is lovely with an enchanting view of the hills and countryside. We felt very much at home here. The location, right outside the city walls of Siena, was perfect. The staff were all very accommodating and helpful. I had a great "heart connection" with this place that felt more like a residence than a hotel. The owner collects classical art that he displays in the lobby and throughout the hallways. The view outside our windows was overlooking the garden and the misty hills of Tuscany. I got up every morning before sunrise to witness the "Leonardo landscape" that would unfold before my eyes. It was mesmerizing. I would definitely stay in this enchanting hotel again and recommend it thoroughly.

Room Tip: Book the garden side rooms for the best views and to avoid street noise.

My husband and I travelled to Italy for 3 weeks in late May/early June 2012 and had the pleasure of staying here for 4 nights. We had originally booked only one but once we got there and felt the warmth of both the place and the people we kept booking additional nights. We had some of our best nights in Italy sitting in the garden in the back with a bottle of wine and a picnic sourced from the local shops - some of our favourite meals the whole time we were away!

Room Tip: A room looking over the garden is very nice!

Just outside the city gate and on a bus route. Furnished in traditional style. Our room was on ground floor . It was quite large and the ensuite was a good size. It had every thing you need. Staff very helpful. The only area they could improve is more choice at breakfast. It was a bit thin compared to others we stayed at in Tuscany. Good view from back over the countryside. Local restaurants a bit thin on quality. It is better to go back into the city and get a local one. Overall good for a 2 night stay.
