We stayed in the superior room and it was fantastic. Amazing views and a huge room. The shower was a tad disappointing but that's just nit picking. The lady on reception was great offering recommendations for places to eat and booking a table for us. The location is great, private parking is free and I would definitely stay there again.

As do a lot of other people I reserved this hotel on Orbitz. I checked Trip Advisor for reviews and it had a favorable rating, 3 to 4 stars. I wasn’t disappointed. This hotel is nicely located; My Garmin GPS took right to the front door. Just a 10-minute walk to the Piazzio del Campo. The Athena was nicely priced and had all the amenities that I have been accustom to having at larger hotels, such as free Wi-Fi, free parking, and free breakfast. The staff was very friendly and helpful. I reserved a standard twin. We wanted a room with a bathtub and they moved us to a nice large deluxe room with a tub at no extra cost. Our room was very clean along with the bathroom, Even had the smell of clean. No bathroom mil due which I seem to find in almost every hotel bathroom. We were there only one night and wish I could have stayed longer. I am very critical when I rate a hotel, but I believe the Athena deserves 5 stars from me.

Room Tip: Ask for the 6th or 7th Floor

Dear, mrafwingnut,

you cannot figure out how much we’re proud of your beautiful words. We appreciated your rating and we appreciated much more that you think we deserved it.

The cleaning is one of our point of strengths and we’re so happy you valued it with five stars.
The low season give us the possibility to be more flexible about the rooms and the upgrade are possible than on high season.

We can’t wait to host you again here in Siena and don’t forget to follow our facebook fan page where you can join all our posts and live the life of Siena 24/7.

Our recent stay in Siena was just great at Hotel Athena. The quiet location was out of the way enough to offer some beautiful views of the countryside, but near enough to all the sights to walk with no problem. Our room was gorgeous, spacious and so clean. We loved the staff with their smiles and genuine service. Thanks to the front desk for helping us get our laundry sent out despite the late hour!! Much appreciated!! We enjoyed having a drink on the seventh floor terrace with the Tuscan setting. Having umbrellas to borrow was a perfect touch! We cannot say enough about our positive experience at Athena.

My G/F and I stayed in a Double Deluxe room for 4 nights. The room was not particularly large or special for a deluxe room, but it was decent sized with solid amenities. We stayed on the highest floor so we got a good view of the Tuscan hillside from our window. The rooms on the other side of the hallway appeared to have the same configuration but with balconies (maybe smoking rooms?) Breakfast was good with plentiful hot and cold options. The property is located on the edge of town so it is necessary to do some walking to reach restaurants / shops. It is about a 10 minutes walk to the Piazza Del Campo (town center). Overall, the hotel is not the most exciting property but it is a solid option when in Siena.

Room Tip: Deluxe rooms are slightly bigger with more updated amenities.

we stayed for a week and would have loved to stay for longer, lovely position and views to die for, the hotel is spotlessly clean and comfortable, the buffet style breakfast was good but for evening meals the resturant couldn't compare to the fabulous food on offer in nearby resturants and inns.
Staff were all polite and helpful

We stayed at Hotel Athena at the very end of the summer last year and whole heartedly agree with the positive comments of the other reviews..

What really made our stay was the wonderful care and attention we received from Andrea, one of the staff. This elegant young man's thoughtfulness and kind actions absolutely made our holiday! And left us with some lovely memories of the hotel and Siena.

I highly recommend staying here.The location is great as it's nestled within the city's walls. The breakfasts are good and it's an easy walk to the centre of Sienna. Arrive in daylight if you can, we found it a little tricky to find Siena in the dark.

And don't forget to say "Ciao" to Andrea, because he is worth his weight in gold and any hotel would be lucky to have him.

Room Tip: It's worth asking for a room with views over the hills not the car park, after all you're in...
