Dear Helen, Wow! Thank you! We appreciated so much your beautiful words and we’re so happy to realize that you enjoyed your beautiful Superior room, that, even if does not have view of the countryside (deluxe rooms characteristic) they are large, located on the higher floors, well designed keeping all the Tuscan and sienese style and newly renovated.

This was an excellent hotel. It was about 10 minutes walk to the Piazza del Campo but was situated within the city walls. It had free parking which from our experience is a rarity in Italy so this is not to be sniffed at! We had a superior room which was very spacious, well appointed and very clean. The staff...

Stayed in a superior room in Aug 2013. Despite the website showing the differences in the size and quality of the rooms this one was on the small side with very little room between both sides of the bed and the walls. Room was clean, bathroom a good size however walls quite thin so light sleepers might struggle to get...

Dear TotoahBelfast, despite to the average review I want to thank you anyway for giving me the possibility to say that the 4 categories of room we have are different even in the size.

We really enjoyed our stay at this hotel. The reception staff were extremely helpful. Free private car parking was a great asset. The breakfasts were delicious with great choices. We had a very nice room with a great view of the countryside. The hotel is within walking distance of the major tourist sites.

There is a free private parking in hotel even though the hotel is located is inside the wall. It takes around 5 minutes to get to the cathedorale of Siena. Staff was very kind and efficient. The bar on top floor opened only in summer was an excellent place to have some drinks with nice view of Siena.

We chose to stay at this property based on the price (under 100 euros) and the positive reviews and it certainly did not disappoint. We had a deluxe room on one of the higher floors that overlooked essentially the Siena countryside. It was gorgeous. Our room was also very very spacious. Having stayed in other European double rooms before, this...
