The rooms were very clean and comfortable. There is a kettle in the room, which is a perk for night tea drinkers. The staff were very professional and polite. The room was comfortable and afforded a great view. It was a little complicated getting to the hotel because of the zones in the city that do not allow foreign drivers....

Siena is an exciting city, and the Athena location helps you to discover the whole city center during the day, or to go walking through the city in the afternoon..Hotel staff is very helpful, breakfast is ok.
