As soon as we entered the hotel it felt better than others we have stayed in with the same staring/price etc. The porter was charming, helpful and came straight over with a WiFi password without asking. He then offered us a drink and asked if we recommended excellent restaurants for dinner.
Our room was split level, with the bed on a separate floor, this was nice so I did not see the mess of suitcases below! The room was warm (for a change compared to other hotels who do not leave their heating on at this time of year despite needing to!) and had a nice big window which looked onto the patio and had great views at a certain angle.
The room felt clean, the bathroom was small but adequate and the shower was excellent. Breakfast was in a sun room that was light and airy. The food was quite simple but there was fruit, cake and the usual continental stuff.
It was a lovely 10 minute walk into the centre of Siena. Parking was convenient. We would certainly stay again
