We stayed in the hotel 5-8 January during our vocation in Italy, floor 8, superior room.
We were driving around Italy and one of the pluses of the hotel was very convenient free parking.
Hotel is located 10-15 minutes walk from the city center, but i don't think that you could find anything with free parking closer to the center.
It is a good quality hotel, reasonably equipped, clean, good standard breakfast - overall a very nice location to enjoy beautiful city of Sienna.
I would recommend to ask for a room on a higher floors as it seems like lower floors lack sunshine ans it is humid there (as the hotel is literally build withing the rock wall from one side).
As for useful tips - if you need there are couple of laundries very close (coin ( 3 EURO) and served), which is useful after the long road trip.
Wi Fi is free of charge , although not very stable - again, i think it is a result of Sienna typography ( hills and rock walls).
Special positive comments toward hotel reception staff - very knowledgeable, friendly and helpful.
