This is an outstanding hotel. The rooms were very comfortable, the choice at breakfast great (and there was no problem in supplying me with a gluten free breakfast), and there were lots of amenities which make staying in a hotel very pleasant. What makes it outstanding is the attitude of the staff: Everybody from the receptionists to the restaurant and...

We spent only one night at Athena hotel. The room was clean and the service was good. Breakfast was ok. As the hotel is located at the edge of the city, we could park in the hotels' garage. We would come back!

We got early to the hotel and our room was not ready. Not a problem, they kept our luggages and we continue touring the area. The rooms are spacious, clean and modern.

We did an overnight trip to Siena while we were vacationing in Florence. Made a quick decision to book a room at Hotel Athena and did not regret it. It has a lovely Italian mid-century feel.

This was our first trip to Siena and we couldn't have been happier staying at the Athena Hotel. The hotel is gorgeous and the weather was lovely.

This hotel is right outside the walled city, and provides the perfect location for exploring Siena. Our room was nice, and had a beautiful view of the city walls.
