Please bear in mind that i stayed in a single room as i was traveling alone. Double rooms may be different but this was my experience. When i asked to change rooms i was told that this was the only single room that they had in the hotel. Trust me, it was a real afterthought that they should have done without.
The website said views over the rooftops of Siena but my window looked directly on to the reception desk and area and if i looked below, a rubbish dump. i could therefore not open the window or curtains during my 2 day (felt like 2 years) stay as then everyone including the receptionist could stare directly in to my room.
I i stared effectively into the wall and the reception area, the room was very dark and i needed to put the lights on at all time, even at lunchtime in Summer!
The room resembled a tiny prison cell. Small cot bed, table chair.
The drain in the shower (which was effectively in the toilet as well stank after i used it
There were 32 steps to the 'hotel' and it was a nightmare lugging my heavy suit case up them.
The walls and door were paper thin and i could hear people sneeze outside never mind talk to each other or on mobile phones or open and close doors.
This is not a 'hotel' in that there is no breakfast and no where to sit or relax. It is a hole in the wall with a reception desk and a rabbit like warren of rooms.
It was a total depressing rip off at E65 for one person
Although it was so hot and hilly in Siena i forced myself to stay out the whole day as i could not bear going back to the 'room'
If you are a single traveler staying in Siena unless you are desperate, do not stay here,
