Everything was good organized. The only thing that could better is the shower. The water came almost in the sleeping room !

I would reccomend any traveller never to stay in this horrible establishment.Its medieval credentials did it no favours,on the contrary,it was the gloomiest most uugly hotel imaginable.The receptionist looked embaressed to be there.Huge flags decorated the dark,vaulted walls of the sinister entrance.No porter assisted us with baggage.No-one was on duty after 7.30pm.After 7.30pm the lifts did not work either.Coming back from dinner ,letting ourselves in with our own key,and then walking to our dark room,was a nasty experience.And the room.Well,I can only shudder at the memory.The tiny bathroom had a sickly urine stench that never went.The dark green wall to wall carpet was stained.The matresses sagged.The covers looked dirty.It was apalling in every way.Run a mile if you get offered this dump in your itinerary.

Room Tip: run away,thats my only advice

This place is beyond dreadful. I booked because I was charmed by the notion of a historic former monastery and it supposedly had parking. I have stayed in quirky old properties before. This was not in that category. It was dirty. There was only one power outlet, which was already occupied by the clock. The shower consisted of a drain in the floor of the bathroom. Since the drain was very slow, you had to take a zippity quick shower so the water didn't spill into the bathroom. Who knows what would have happened if I had dropped the only towel on the flooded bathroom floor because the staff left at 7:30. The "free parking lot" consists of whatever street parking you can find outside the city walls by divining the limitations in the street signs and then trying to find your way back through the streets of a medieval city.

Room Tip: Stay somewhere else.

We stayed 6 nights; staff friendly, good breakfast, great coffee. We got the infamous bathroom with shower/toillet together (common in small albergos in Italy). We requested another room without a problem we were changed to the one next to the front desk, clean, good size, tile floor but no mirror in the room, with a window facing the Piazza.
If noise bothers you this is not the hotel for you. Hotel is located at Piazza de la Sale, where buses depart every 10 minutes. A restaurant across the Piazza with outdoor tables can be noisy as well.
As a travel agent I have to admit the price is right, no frills, safe and good location.

Room Tip: Request a room with shower & toillet separated. Avoid rooms facing the Piazza/street.

50-75m or so from the major bus plaza, approx 7-10 min walk to the main square the heart of Siena, the convenience and friendly help from the staff more than make up for any complaints about noise (i admit-noise=action...). Happy to have a breakfast before setting out each day. All the buses go here, can get anywhere, walk all around Siena from here. I was in Siena at high season and the price was very very reasonable - and i was "tipped off" by the staff when to go and see the festive parades for the special festival during August. Siena - the place to be in Tuscany, smaller and friendlier than Florence its traditional enemy...

first of all don't watch the movie 1408 before u going to visit this hotel.
the smell in the hallways and in the room was awful. there is only one person in the hotel that takes care of all the visitors requests. and after 9 pm this person leaves, so there is nobody at the desk. the elevator is also not working after 9 pm, so we had to use the stairways.

A very nice hotel with an excellent location. Within 10 minutes you can reach every place of interest.

The hotel offer all kind of services you need for your stay in Siena. The breakfast was very good. We also loved the noise around the hotel - the noise gave us the feeling of being in the heart of ITALY.

At last: the staff added value to our stay - always kindly helping us - thank you Rosa & Jannicke.
