A very pleasant 4 night stay at this hotel in Siena, that is about a 10 minute walk to the main plaza of Piazza del Campo. The location is just inside of the city walls, making it close to everything but far enough away to have “quiet time”.
The roof top lounge on the 7th floor has a fabulous view of the Tuscan countryside and city walls where you can enjoy your favorite beverage, a light snack and watch the sun go down over the Tuscan hills.
All of the “Reception” staff were very friendly & helpful with excellent English. They made suggestions for dinner and went out of their way to suggest other local day trips.
Our room was big and light, with high ceilings, a large window and a traditional Tuscan design, with a nice welcome bottle of Italian wine and fruit waiting for us. The bed was very comfortable and the bathroom was spacious and clean with nice thick towels.
The breakfast had a nice selection of items too, although the juices were not very good.
Stayed there May 2013 and would definitely stay there again!
