What We Love
- An enchanting stay in Tuscany's historic city of Siena, with breakfast and a restaurant discountSavoring delicious Tuscan specialties and enjoying a discount at the hotel's restaurant
- Visiting Siena's central square, the Piazza del Campo – a UNESCO World Heritage Site
- Strolling the charming medieval streets of this historic city
What To Know
- The large pool, terrace, tennis courts and gardens are great spots to relax
- Breakfast is buffet-style
- It's a 20-minute walk into town (or five minutes by bus, which is easy and affordable); to explore the countryside around Siena, it's best to rent a car (parking is free at the hotel)
How to Get There
Very rude and unhelpful manager who seemed to resent fact that we booked through Travel Republic. Rooms nowhere near as nice ad in pictures. Basic and in a 1960s building resembling a toilet block.I could go on but no point as they do not seem to care.
We stayed for 3 nights at the start of a touring holiday. We had booked an upgraded room as there were some negative comments about the basic category room. Our room was fine, in one of the blocks separate to the main hotel. It was spacious, air conditioned and a very large bathroom. Everywhere was very clean and well maintained.Only downside we found was that the bed was extremely hard- maybe good for your back but this was like sleeping on a board.
The hotel is in a quiet location but it is quite a walk to the centre, about half an hour. There is a bus you can catch from outside the hotel.
Breakfast was good with fresh fruit, cheeses, meats and pastries on the buffet. Hot food was scrambled eggs and bacon which seemed to be the standard in all the hotels we visited. Lovely to take breakfast on the terrace with distant views of the city.
We had dinner in the restaurant, food was good but the lighting in the restaurant could be improved to create a better ambience.
Great swimming pool area with plenty of sun beds and shade if needed.
Good bar with outside terrace with free bar nibbles provided every night.
When you arrive there you think that you come on some beautiful place. But unfortunately there is not beautiful, only cheat from side of pictures what you see on internet and realistic situation. We reserved Triple room but picture on booking.com and also on site of hotel is totally different. Room look terrible. It was very cold in side, we was on minus three floor and outside look like horror movie. You just wait that somebody get in your room from outside...
Floor in side of shower was dirty. Refrigerator wasn’t worked. Many flys was in side. But cold was very strong in side, and we didn’t want to use blanket because didn’t look clean. Furniture was from period of Maria Teresa and also smell in side was from that period. They really cheat with picture on web site...
Only good thing in this hotel is breakfast. Offer is very good, almost fantastic. Everything is very fresh and cookies and pies was fantastic. But this was one of my worst night in some hotel in my life. This is not hotel for four stars, maybe some others rooms but all of like this is less than one star.
My wife and I stayed here for the first leg of out Italian trip for 4 nights, we arrived late after a slight flight delay and a longer trip than expected in a hire car(my first time driving in Italy!)
Room was functional rather than plush and no kettle!
The main hotel was beautiful, we were in a separate block but the gardens and pool area and terrace are stunning it’s a great base to stay in Siena as only around 15-20 mins to the centre.
Train station is around 10 minute walk from hotel.
We enjoyed breakfast here most mornings and had great coffee.
The room was spacious, plenty of amenities.
The breakfast was quite good:good pastries. In my opinion it was missing more cooked food(there was only bacon and scramble eggs).
The staff was correct.
Overall, it was good and I would go back again
