“Modern Hotel in Good Location”
Reviewed 11 September 2013 via mobile

We stayed here for 3 nights in September and after a very slow check in we found this hotel to be a great choice. Our room window overlooked the street with the Bus Station but we were not affected by any external noise. The room was small but clean and modern- the mini bar is expensive but has space for your own snacks. The bathroom was clean with fresh towels and toiletries daily.
Breakfast offers a wide range of choices and all seems tasty. The hotel is also close to the centre of town and the fortress which was useful.
A good stay overall.

This hotel has a modern interior and is located just outside the cobbled stone walks and walls of historic Sienna. The lobby is attractive but the elevators are small. Our room was in the front of the hotel, which faces the bus station and there was noise every one of the 4 nights... especially on the Friday where I had real trouble sleeping. The room was modern and clean, the bed was comfortable, the desk was convenient, but it is a European-style room with insufficient space for two people. We were literally tripping over our stuff which we had to leave on the floor. The room would be perfect for a single traveler. There is a free, working safe in the room and the air con was just fine. It has a modern comfortable bathroom with space for your toiletries. There is a 'balcony' door which did not close properly. The mini-bar is great to put your own snacks in. There is a resto on site and the meals at dinner were decent. They offer a breakfast buffet which included scrambled eggs, bacon, croissants, cake, choice of juices, coffees, pastries, breads, cheeses, cold meats, fruits... a good and tasty spread. Anyone can find something satisfying here.

Room Tip: I would avoid the rooms in front facing the bus station for the excess noise. I wasn't the only...

This hotel is the most central to the Siena's bus station at Piazza Gramsci. You can catch buses to just about anywhere, and there are a number of cafes where tourists stop by for a cafe or an Aperol Spritzer!. The hotel is air-conditioned, has an elevator and ramp (for those big wheelie suitcases - overflowing with fabulous leather goods bought at Florence Mercato) and is accessible for people with mobility issues. The breakfast is wonderful and is best purchased when you book your accomodation. The breakfast room and bar is a good place to meet other friendly travellers, and there is tea, coffee, and sweets available at a small bar during the day. There is a fitness centre, but honestly, you will keep fit by working around the beautiful streets of Siena. The city of Siena is directly behind the bus station, where you can wander through its beautiful cobble stone streets each day, walk to the Duomo and Santa Domenica church, attend a football game at the sports stadium, or simple enjoy Siennese hospitality and lovely food (not like tourist food in Rome).

The hotel was "okay". We chose it because it was very close to the bus stop in Siena. Our complaints were that the television was small and filled with static, with few/no English channels, the room had stains on the wall, there were bugs on the wall, and when we told the front desk that it was our honeymoon, they would not do anything special or complementary upgrade us. I thought, in the end, the hotel was too much for the services that were provided. The three positive things about this hotel were its location, the breakfast was decent, and the common area/lobby was very nice.

Clean, comfortable and very nice. Rooms are spacious and personnel is very nice. Has an astounding breakfast. Distance to the city and campo il palio is ideal, just a 15 minutes walk to get there. Wifi works good. Only thing that may stop you from getting here is price, but there are nice promotions now and then that make it very economical. I definitely recommend this hotel for a nice stay at this beautiful and unique city.

Very reasonable prices, great location, walking distance to the old city center and the 'Il Campo' square. Quiet neighborhood. Cheap good pizza places and fancy restaurants around. Nice shops, bars, cafés, markets and delikatessens a few meters away. Also, quite close to the Cathedral, the Fortress and many other churches and interesting spots.

We have stayed in the NH Excelsior Hotel now for two months. The staff is great and goes out of their way to be helpful. This is exemplified by the Emanuele who is the front desk manager/superviser. He has given us the best service like that of higher level hotels. The breakfast at Excelsior is the best we have experienced in Siena Hotels ......lots of fresh fruits, special juices, croissants, eggs, cheeses and meats, cereals, yogurts with lots of dried mangoes, papayas, and other dried fruits, walnuts and much more. From the previous reviews that I have read, the hotel is now greatly improved. Capuccino and expresso and tea is available from 7:00 am to almost 5:00 pm. My wife and I truly enjoyed the hotel and its central location close to the Il Campo and numerous restaurants.
