Reviewed yesterday NEW

Rooms great size, staff on reception very helpful, dine on rooftop terrace during summer with most magnificent views, complimentary bottle of wine on arrival, complimentary water in fridge. Staff very helpful in organising tours and anything we needed, bar/waiters were very knowledgeable and friendly, plenty of areas to relax in and papers to read.

We spent the night here while exploring Tuscany. The hotel was fine. Not Special but nicely located to explore Sienna. The staff were VERY nice. The hotel feels a bit old. we asked about air conditioning and they suggested we open the windows. Our room had LOVELY views over looking the countryside--which we paid extra for--but also over the rooftop...

The hotel is on the edge of the city, just inside the city walls, about 10-15 minutes walk from Il Campo. The staff (including those in the dining room) were both efficient and very friendly. The breakfast buffet had quite a variety, and the one dinner we ate at the hotel was excellent. The room staff always managed to clean...

Stayed a week as visiting daughter who lives in old city. Pluses are good location within city wall, free parking, friendly staff, good wifi and nice terrace bar. The rooms are adequate - we had deluxe on top floor with nice views. However, note that shower over bath arrangement was tricky to get in to and quite tight for space....

This hotel is right next to the old city wall, and an easy walk to all of Siena, which is a lovely town. The view from our hotel room showed olive trees, vineyards, the city wall, and the mountains in the distance. The front desk staff were helpful and assisting us make a dinner reservation the second night we were...

Hotel is located in historic Siena. Good location and walking distance to Piazza Del Campo and all of the old town areas. 5th floor (reception level) room was clean, but very loud on street side. Certainly not what was advertised in their website photos. The breakfast selection was mostly pastries, the eggs were watery and the bacon severely under-cooked. For...

We arrived at Siena for a one night stop over. The Hotel Athena lovely reception and very friendly and helpful reception staff. Quickly registered and shown our room , large with lovely view over the countryside. The hotel is ideally located to visit the local sites with only a short walk away. Parking available. Highly recomended

This hotel is at the edge of the walled city - so the view is spectacular. It's quieter than inside the city centre with an uphill walk to the city centre (or downhill coming home) but not too far. We got a taxi from the train station with no problem. The traffic is controlled and mostly one way so don't...

This hotel is in a great position, just inside the walls and it offers parking which is so valuable. It has a lovely rooftop bar and the room was fine, a bit small bit with a nice balcony and view. What let this hotel down was the breakfast arrangements! Goodness it was like a bun fight. Far too many people,...
