We stayed here two nights. Helpful staff, good location, our room had a view of the old city wall. Easy walking distance to the Piazza del Campo, the Duomo, and all the sights in the walled part of Siena. Got a really good recommendation for a restaurant from reception. Osteria Nona Gina, just around the corner. She told me to order the Gnocchi alla Lela. it was the best, melt-in-your-mouth gnocchi I've ever had. Spacious room, comfortable bed, nice bathroom, in room coffee and tea. Quite a comprehensive breakfast. All-in-all, very convenient and a very pleasant experience.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a view.

Dear feeardesh,

Thank you very much for taking time to review your experience with us. Even Osteria Nonna Gina shall be happy reading your comment.

Our Deluxe rooms as described everywhere have two views options, countryside OR city view with balcony, both choices are amazing, to wake up and see the city wall that still protect Siena to the invaders is an unforgettable experience :-)

Next time you’ll decide to stay with us I invite you to try our restaurant that is not a secondary choice respect to all the town restaurant.

We found the front desk staff extremely helpful in directions and suggestions for dinner and tours. We found the wait staff provided us with brisk service during breakfast. The rooms were large and the beds more than adequate. I would only recommend that they allow access to air conditioning.

This hotel was wonderful. The staff were very friendly and helpful. It was easy to get in and out of the city because of the hotels location. It was also easy to walk out the front door and explore Sienna. The terrace on the 5th???? floor I believe was lovely. It was large enough to accommodate more than a few people and it was a excellent place to watch the sun set or just check out the wall and country side. The hotel restaurant was fantastic when we ate dinner there one night. I left my orthopedic pillow in our room and they were kind enough to mail it to me in Rome. Room was a little small but I am used to rooms in the US. Our room was by the street and I would not recommend that for the sheer fact that you are woken up pretty early by the street traffic and pedestrian but if you are an early riser it would be not big deal.

Room Tip: Never checked out the fitness center and I am not sure if there was a pool

Dear basavard1,

This review is awesome, it had been a pleasure to host you in our hotel and we’re happy to realize that it had been the same for you.

Thank you to point out an important aspect of our rooms; the economy ones are located on the ground floor and for that reason they have no view, but they are large and comfortable enough to respect all the characteristic of a 4 stars hotel’s rooms. We provided to improve the sound insulation with brand new windows and now they are quieter than never. To choose an economy room is a great value for money choice.

For your next stay with us let me invite you to check and join our facebook page, full of news and tips.

See you soon and best regards

Got a fantastic price for this hotel mid week for 2 nights but once we got here and found it so great we booked for a third night. Lovely room with quite a reasonable amount of space. Bed was very comfortable. Plenty of wardrobes and a reasonable sized bathroom.
Very nice breakfast and the restaurant is good for dinner if you don't feel like going out.

Great location on the edge of town but inside the walls without too many tourists around. Easy walk to many great restaurants and to the Duomo and the Piazza del Campo. Would definitely recommend this hotel for anyone visiting Siena.

Half a day in Siena is enough, but if you need an hotel, do not hesitate to go to Athena hotel.
Location is great, the room are good and accessorized, but it all come to customer services.
You can find a chocolate on your bed, everyone is very pleasant and you can get an answer for any question in the reception.
We got even recomendations for the trip in the next days - where to go and what we can pass over.

Dear Amirlir,

Thank you first of all for your kind review. Let me point out a fact, Siena deserves much more than an half day tour, there are so many things to do and to see except the main square or the Duomo. The attractions in-town and in the surroundings are so many and so beautiful. Next time take 3 or 4 day at least.

So, for that reason, I invite you to book your next stay with us ASAP and trust us about the trip, we will make you enjoy Siena in the way you’d not imagined.

Follow us on twitter and keep in touch with us to get update.

Best regards

Ronny

Two weeks ago we were in Siena and stayed at the very lovely Hotel Athena. The hotel was spacious, clean and extremely convenient/close by to many attractions. We loved our stay and would go back in a heart beat. If you get a chance, go to the 7th floor where you have access to a terrace that has some nice views of Siena.

In addition to the location, the staff were so nice and friendly. No matter how many times they saw my husband and I walk in an out of the hotel, they always greeted us with a nice welcome and smile. :) We fell in love with Siena and Hotel Athena is a place that we plan on returning for years to come.

If you get a chance, get the breakfast! Each day there was a delightful spread of great food.

Hotel Athena gets a five star review from us!

We spent two nights in a deluxe room in March. The staff take real pride in delivering a great experience - this is an excellent hotel. Great service, wonderful view from the deluxe rooms, and a great location. It's an easy walk to the centre, and the on site parking is very useful if you have a car. I would come back in a heartbeat - highly recommended.
