    The staff was friendly, a parking space was available, the location is close to the city center (10 min walk).

    The breakfast was very poor: no descent coffee, not much choice, fruit came out of a can, ... . Moreover, some floor tiles in our bathroom were loosening, I cant imagine they didn't know this. The room was also very small. And finally, tv had no international news channel like cnn or bbc or others. So a rather disappointing stay.

    Very good

    Hotel is well situated in Sienna although a little away from the Old Town Centre which is why you would go there.Overall a good hotel

    The room and the bathroom were very spacious, comfortable and clean. Beautiful common terrace area with great views -- wonderful to sit after a day of sightseeing with a book and something to drink. Service was good, as was the breakfast. Parking garage under the hotel.

    At the far end of the old city -- still a good location and absolutely within walking distance of everything.

    Good

    Great location, 10 min walk from town center , free parking. Large marble bathroom.

    Although we had "deluxe" room , it did not appear like one. Rooms need refurnished , they look old and tired. Uncomfortable beds. They did not use quilts for the beds but blankets.

    Superb

    The staff were excellent - more than happy to help with advice about renting bikes, where to go, and what to see. The room was exactly as described, and was well cleaned and maintained. The location was good - within the walls of inner Siena, and probably a 10-15 minute walk to most attractions.

    The location of the hotel was excellent and the staff was very helpful.

    No Kleenex in rooms and need larger bars of soap.

    Superb

    The location was just inside the walls of the old town but on the lower west side, so not right near the centre, Il Campo area, but was within 10 minutes from there and had great charm. The view from our window was spectacular - over the fields outside the wall. The hotel was surprisingly more upscale than expected and was great value and quality for the price we paid.

    I would like to highlight that there was no "Evacuation Map" anywhere in the room(Standard twin). I think it's illegal!! We requested it, but they couldn't. Not only the room too small for moving our suitcase( thesuitcase would get stuck between the desk and bed), we could not close the inner door without moving the bed ourselves. There is no safety box in the room.We were shocked by how small the shower booth was. I could barely fit in it(I'm Asian Lady) . None of the photos of these are on their website(Standard rooom). They couldn't give us a refill of the broken porcelain glass of the bath room. This is clearly not a 4 star hotel. 2 or 3 star Level!!! We traveled in Italy 1 month, but we can say this hotel is the worst!
