“A True Sanctuary in the Heart of Siena”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 March 2014

Hotel Alma Domus is so much more than a "hotel" - it truly is a little sanctuary in the heart of Siena. It is beautifully simple and immaculately clean. The staff is wonderful and accommodating - Emmanuelle (hope I'm spelling that right) was at the front desk during the day, and I wish I could remember the night person's name; they both made my stay so much easier. I had a single room with twin beds and an amazing view of the Duomo from my little terrace. Waking up to views of Siena every morning was something I'll never forget. My bed and pillows were so comfortable, and the room was a haven to come back to each evening after a day of sightseeing. Alexandra prepares a feast of cakes, croissants, pastries, yogurt, cereal, fruit, toast, coffee, tea and juice for breakfast - she'll also whip you up a cappuccino if you ask her. There is a room, more like a living room in an elegant home, with a piano, plenty of places to lounge, a large table, and two computers if you want or need internet access and don't have your laptop with you. I didn't have a television, but I didn't want one - I was truly on vacation and unplugged. The price for my stay was extremely reasonable, and I can't wait to go back.

I've stayed here several times over the past few years when visiting Siena and have found it to boast the best location - particularly for those on pilgrimage or looking to stay in the heart of the city. The hotel was recently renovated making the stay even more comfortable and the view is excellent. Also, the prices can't be beat.

This place reminded me of an upmarket youth hostel. Breakfast was served with plastic plates, bowls and cups -a disgrace in terms of the environmental impact, as well as being awful to eat from. I had a tiny single room- big enough for a single bed only, and the shower went over the sink. If you stay it's worth getting a room with a view- it looks towards the duermo, no view means a brick wall, which is the other side of the building. Overall it's okay, but you can probably find better.

This hotel was extremely reasonanly priced compared to others we looked at. Our room was extremely clean and appeared as if it had been newly renovated. The view over Siena towards the Duomo was a delight to wake up to. Highly recommended.

Though it's one-stared hotel but with stunning view from balcony! our room was very clean n comfortable, we've had a good sleep there. What interesting is only us two girls lived in hotel that night except the staff, even so they still have offered us a great service. They were very friendly n have answered all of our questions with patience. And the second day when we were eating breakfast(there were still a lot to eat even though only us 2), what has made me surprise was one of the staff went to buy the bread especially for us(cuz in breakfast hall, they have already prepared cornettos ). They really have left a deep impression to me, the best service i have ever seen.

We loved our experience at the Alma Domus. Our room was modern, clean and had an amazing view. Great location. Internet was a little annoying as had to sign in every day and get a new chit, however it was free. Breakfast pretty spartan but lots of great cafés near by. Would definitely return.

I would agree with several of the other reviews of this hotel. We were very pleasantly surprised by how nice and comfortable the hotel was. Our room overlooked the Duoma which was great.
Breakfast was good. We were able to leave our bags locked up while we did a little sight seeing before leaving. The only reason I rated the room as very good rather than excellent was it's size but for the price it was well worth it.

Room Tip: Ours overlooked the Duoma which was great. See attached picture.
