“Nice and comforable hotel”
Reviewed June 26, 2011

This was a very nice hotel just on the outskirts of Siena. The breakfast is excellent. We had to leave early the next morning and the full spread was available at 6am. The bus stop is right outside to hotel and so it is no issue in getting into Siena itself. The hotel staff are very friendly and efficient. The rooms are large and very comfortable. Just a point to note, the hotel is actually easily accesible as it is right off the highway but the first time you see the area it was actually confusing for us. Our GPS did not recognise Via Massetana, 70 and said it did not exist. It took 20 minutes but eventually we did find it. It is still a lot less effrot than having to park in Siena and parking is free. Would have no hesitation recommending this hotel for functionality and value for money.

Hotel San Marco worked well for us. The hotel was easily reached by car and had a large parking lot attached. The local bus was nearby and a quick ride got you to the center of the walled town where there was much to do and see. Bus tickets were available at the hotel. The staff at the front desk were very pleasant and helpful. Although the room was basic, it was clean, quiet and comfortable with a good sized bathroom. The European breakfast was adequate with fresh cappuccinos made for you. Good value for your money.

On the fringe of Siena with easy access to the city, this (new) hotel is probably business-oriented, but served us well for two nights. Rooms are very comfortable and spotlessly clean. An excellent breakfast buffet. Free parking. Good-natured staff.

Found this hotel purely by chance on driving into Siena. Since we had a car we really wanted a hotel where we could park outside and not have to leave it in a parking lot and walk with our suitcases. We were very pleasantly surprised by what we found.

The hotel, rooms and breakfast area were all very clean. TV and internet worked well, although the internet did come at a relatively high charge (15 euros/24 hours). The staff were very friendly and accomodating. The price was excellent. Overall we had no complaints at all and were very very happy here.

Be aware that the hotel is outside the main city a bit, but this does allow for easy parking. Since we were more interested in the countryside around the city this was perfect.

We used the hotel as our base for a 7-day visit to the region. The hotel staff were all very helpful and friendly. The rooms were spacious and quiet. The beds were so comfortable that we wanted to bring them home! Breakfast was excellent with a large selection of cakes and pastries each day (yes, there was healthy stuff also...) The hotel location was excellent for day trips with easy access to all routes. The hotel is located about 20 minutes walk outside the city walls so the best way to get there is to use the local bus - cheaper to buy a ticket at hotel reception than on the bus. The hotel has no restaurant but there are two restaurants near by. The only difficulty we had was in finding the hotel (a GPS will solve this). Otherwise, look out for Ristorante da Michele (also excellent) and the hotel is behind it! I would definitely recommend this hotel.

The Hotel San Marco is excellent in all respects. The staff were pleasant and helpful; the rooms were a good size, well appointed, quiet and spotlessly clean; breakfast was very good by Italian standards. The hotel is not in the centre of Siena but it is really only 20 minutes walk to get to the walls and then another 5 minutes to get to the centre. Get a decent map before you come and work out the shortest route. The walk is uphill but, hey - Siena is a hill town! There are two restaurants close by - we went to the cheaper one which was fine. If you are coming from the A1 on autostrada, you need to follow the signs to the Siena Tangenziale Ovest and then come off at Siena Ovest. All in all, I very strongly recommend this hotel.

After just making it to the Tourist Information Centre in the Historic Centre of Siena just minutes before it closed at 7pm we were directed to this Hotel. As I like to research Hotels a little I was a bit concerned at the very hasty booking. We were in and out of that Office with a reservation and deposit paid in under 5 minutes.
The Hotel was a short drive from the Siena walled City and we were very happy with it.
Reception staff were very friendly and our room was large and clean and functional.
There are no pictures on the walls and there is a real minimalist feel about the whole building but everything is there that you require for a comfortable quiet stay.
The breakfast room was sunny and more colourful and we were given a good breakfast.
For an inexpensive room for a night I would highly recommend this Hotel.
There is also a very popular restaurant right next door for dinner which we used and would also recommend.
