“Room with VIEW!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 December 2010

This hotel was such a wonderful surprise. It's a budget experience - the room is basic and there's no TV or fridge BUT....... 90% of rooms have a view of the city. My room also had a big balcony. Try to get a room at a high level and ask for a balcony..... for the price it's amazing. When i arrived I opened the shutters and the view took my breath away. All for about 45 Euros a night.....It's about a 10 min walk to the very centre but this hotel, an old Sanctuary, is also in a lovely and safe area. There's a breakfast included which is basic but adequate. There's always good coffee!

We stayed here two pleasant nights. Beautiful view from our small balcony. Room and bath were ample size, but not plush. No TV, but hardly any English programs over there anyway. Breakfast was very good. Decent location for exploring Sienna and about 10 minute walk from bus station.

My wife & I stayed at the Alma Domus in September 2010 for 2 nights and had a wonderful time in Siena. Accommodations are small & no frills, but the location and hotel rate cannot be beat. It is only about a 10 minute walk from Il Campo, so close to the action but also very quiet. We both recommend this hotel. In Siena, you have to try the Antica Pizzicheria al Palazzo della Chigiana (Via di citta 93/95) for the best sandwiches. Great quality and huge sizes, 1 can be shared by 2 people.

Pros: Nice courtyard; great location (10-15 minute walk to Il Campo); nice small balconies in some rooms; tidy & comfortable; excellent & friendly service; decent breakfast with nice espresso; amazing rates.

Cons: Sewage odor in bathroom twice during stay. Staff was very accommodating and offered to change us rooms but running the shower for 30 seconds took care of the problem.

We stayed at the Hotel Alma Domus in Siena for four nights. While it is a pretty basic hotel, we really enjoyed our stay there. We had researched the location and didn't have any trouble finding it. The desk staff was not overly friendly, but they were helpful enough. The breakfast was fine with OK quality and plenty of choices - but remember it's a European breakfast, meaning basic breads, jellies, pastries, and juices/coffee. The capuccino was a nice touch. The breakfast staff people were very pleasant. Our room was very clean and comfortable and the view was amazing. And we appreciated the terrycloth towels in the bathroom. No television was fine with us. We would stay there again anytime!

This is a working convent with a unique history. Although spartan in furnishings, the rooms had everything needed, except the bathrooms were very tiny. However be sure to request a room with a balcony for the view is fantastic. All of Siena can be seen from my balcony room. The included breakfast was monotonous and like the rooms, spartan.

We stayed two nights at the Alma Domus in October. The rooms and also bathrooms are *tiny*, but the views from the bath-mat-sized balcony are fantastic. The bed was very hard but that seems to be an Italian thing.
The location is good, although I was hoping to be slightly closer to the city. I have walking issues and did not realize that the hotel's "street" was actually a long flight of stairs.
The service was mixed, with the gentleman on the desk in the evenings being an awesome reference while the lady on in the day time was a sourpuss. Breakfast was fine. Italians don't do big breakfasts and I was craving something other than pastries and coffee by the time we got to Siena. They had yogurt, which was nice.
In all, for a budget hotel I think it was a fair value. Not great, but fair. In retrospect I think I would have been happier spending a bit more money to have a nicer place, but I don't regret staying there.

This was our second stay at Alma Domus and both times it was exactly as expected: clean, decent room with a view of the duomo and a decent breakfast. Staff were friendly but not overly so.
