Reviewed 6 June 2014

Belonging to Convent, this Hotel is renovated, has modern highlights, good bathroom, heater, no A/C, good elevator. Very clean facilities. Basic italian breakfast, just sweet and coffee. Very close to downtown. If you go by own car just can download luggage since Hotel is in ZTL area(protected only residents ad authorized). Parkings are available nearby.

Arrived there in the pouring rain and walked down the stairs to the reception to be greeted with a look from the receptionist as to why I was here. Im sorry I thought this was a hotel?
She then proceeded to take our passports give us keys (barely any information) and shuffle us out of the reception area as fast as we walked in.
The room was lovely to their credit. Good facilities and a nice breakfast. Also situated in an excellent position.
Dont bother asking for a map either. One the receptionist didnt seem to know what a map was and two you wont recieve any information about the town nor your position in the town so you will spend the next 20-30 minutes figuring out where to go and how to get there on the poorly photocopied map provided.
Recieved one friendly smile from staff and it was when we were leaving.
Would only recommend staying at this hotel for the price it costs if you have everything you need to know about the city already and dont require ANY help or local knowledge from the staff as they will probably just look at you and be confused as to why you asked a question.

I'm sorry if my colleague of the front desk was not up to the task, this is not excusable but as can be read from other reviews we all work hard to give good service to our customers, we also give everyone a map of the city and we give all the information about the city.

kind regards

I've stayed at Hotel Alma Domus for several days in the last four years. Every time I just feel "at home." If you arrive by shuttle or taxi, just tell them to take you to the San Domenico church. Then walk down the hill to the left of the church, follow it as it turns left, then take a sharp right down large stairs to the hotel on the left. I'm lucky I had been there before because our shuttle driver had difficulty with GPS since cars can't drive down that road!

The rooms are very clean, comfortable and quiet. The decor is a little different in each room. This year I had a proper shower with doors and did not have to shower over the toilet. I had asked by email to have a room with a view this year and was very disappointed not to get that. Somehow the staff missed that in my email. Fortunately, I travel with university students and our view-less rooms were more to our budget anyway. And truthfully, Siena is such a great city that I only go back to the room to sleep! Breakfast is typical and not memorable... breads, spreads, fruit, juices, coffee. The staff is helpful, knows your room number (they ask for you to turn in keys when you leave the premises), and some are friendly.

The restaurants just outside the hotel are terrific. We ate at San Domenico and Nonno Mede twice each! Can't wait to return again next year!

Spartan and clean and well located for touring Siena but the main reason to stay are the beautiful views of the cathedral. Although you have to sit on the toilet to take a shower I still like staying here. Great breakfast and the staff are generally helpful.

A little hard to find, but this hotel is a former convent and conveniently located in the heart of Siena. The staff were helpful and accommodating. The rooms were small with very narrow showers but nothing unusual for a lot of European hotels. There is an extensive breakfast buffet as well. Be sure to visit the adjoining church of St. Catarina, it's quite beautiful.

We had a nice stay at Hotel Alma Domus. Our room had a great view. Spacious bathroom, which is hard to come by in Italy! Someone is at the desk 24 hrs a day. The breakfast was very nice. It's in the lower level of the building and offers a nice spread. Location was pretty good. We were able to walk to hotel from bus station (we took bus in and out of Siena). We were able to leave our luggage in a locked room the day we were departing, which was great. My only complaint would be the Wifi. It was super spotty and did not work well at all. If this is important to you, then do not book here, because another couple that we met said they couldn't get the wifi to work at all for them. We only stayed one night, so we were not bothered much by the spotty wifi.

Dear Neenza,
thank you for choosing Hotel Alma Domus and for writing this kind review about us.
It's very nice reading you appreciated our breakfast, our renovated bathroom, our luggage store, our room with amazing view.I am sorry to the poor functioning of the wifi but if he had reported the problem when you were still at the hotel we could probably fix the problem; In any case I would like to point out to everyone that WIFI works perfectly and it's free as already reported correctly by other guests.

kind regards

We stayed for two nights and the view from our room was beautiful. The room was a good size and had a decent sized bathroom with an oil column heaterf which keep us toasty warm. The reception staff lady wasnt very friendly but still helpful. Wifi worked fine. The breakfast was ok, the coffee was ok too. It would be nice if they played some background music in the breakfast area. it is so quiet people are nervously whispering to each other! Overall good stay.
