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... More

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.
