The location of this hotel is excellent being just inside the walls of the old town. The reception was ordinary and not happy with having to leave our passports at reception and only got them back a few hours later when we insisted they took info. required while we waited.The room was reasonable but not happy, firstly with thin walls as we could hear people in the next room on the phone or having a shower. It became worse at night because the in house restaurant was directly below our room and we could hear talking, music, and the dishwasher and pots being cleaned up until midnight.
Buffet Breakfast was supplied but was quite bland and they were very tardy to replenish things.
Had a meal at the restaurant and the food and service was very good.
They also have a terrace upstairs where you can ring to order a snack or drink and you have a lovely view of the Tuscany hills.
The saving grace was the beauty of Siena.
Love the Old Town of Siena but would not stay at this hotel again.
