Very fine hotel with a/c, elevator and parking. Rooms with a balcony or terrace available. Ours 0006 had a terrace overlooking the city. They are taking COVID precautions seriously. It’s an uphill walk to town but that where the action is. Bus station about a 10 minute walk and train station about 20 minutes away Breakfast provided

We went to Siena for a few days city tour without the children and found it to be one of the nicest places we had ever been to. The hotel was exceptional and great value for a 3 star. The room had the most amazing terrace which had fabulous views of the city and was only a 10min walk to the Palio centre which was stunning. The staff at the hotel were great and the breakfast varied and fresh. We would go back again as we love Italy. Thanks Ps, we travelled in June 2018 and forgot to write a review

Could use an update, but clean and well kept. Small elevator. Our mini split ac unit was finicky. The breakfast was unusually good for this class of hotel as was the service. Really nice little garden veranda sitting area for breakfast or just relaxing. Hotel has its own underground parking that is as usual very cramped. The parking was also very expensive. A very nice restaurant across the street but everything else is a bit of a walk.
