Hotel Santa Caterina was a perfect choice for my one-week stay in Siena.
The hotel itself — the lobby, bar, and breakfast room — is lovely and inviting. The outdoor breakfast area, which offers a wonderful view of the surrounding countryside, is a perfect spot to relax after a full day in the city or after a day trip to a nearby Tuscan hill town. The breakfast itself offers everything you might want to begin your day. The staff members are uniformly helpful, no matter what hour you might ply them with questions or request help. I've been traveling solo in Europe almost every year for the past 15 years, and I can say unequivocally that the staff at Hotel Santa Caterina provided unsurpassed service and support.
My room was remarkably quiet. Actually, incredibly quiet. I didn't hear a sound at night, maklng a full-night's rest easy. The mini-bar was well-stocked, with the items fairly priced. The bathroom was modern and immaculate, and the towels were full and plentiful, something other hotels might learn from.
The hotel is about 100 yards down from the Porta Romana entrance to the old city, or about a 15-minute walk to the Campo. I enjoyed the walk and found it an invigorating way to begin my day.
If I'm ever lucky enough to visit Siena again, I will certainly choose Hotel Santa Caterina once again without hesitation.
