We had a one-night stay here as part of a Cosmos tour. The hotel was in a reasonable location. The room size was surprisingly adequate. However, the beds weren't very comfortable. The bathroom was okay but the shower itself was terribly mouldy and very off-putting. It looked as though it had never been cleaned. Our tour guide did warn us that this was going to be one of the more basic hotels on the tour. We actually found the included meals there to be quite good, and it was the only hotel on our tour that had a toaster in the breakfast room! I'll mention the staff, who seemed to be very sullen and unhappy, and possibly tired due to it being the end of the busy tourist season for them. Overall, it was a comfortable if very basic stay here. I don't know if I would stay here again.

The room was fine, as was the bathroom (except for the towels which where sheets) and a little fridge was nice to see. But this is a 62 room hotel and it (so far as I can tell) specialises in taking groups. There was a crowd of rowdy Italian teenagers, plus 2 other groups. The hotel put us in a corner room but it made no difference. 3 complaints as we were kept awake had no impact either - the hotel could do nothing. The next morning we checked out - another group was due in later. They apologised.

Not a modern hotel today but would have been in 1910! However we were lucky and had a large room with old wonderful furniture including the matress which was one of the worst ones I have ever slept on! Room,bathroom and linen were claen and breakfast and evening meals were fine. Excellent location for town escalators.

We spent 2 nights in the Moderno in June this year and were satisfied with the Hotel, not pleased, just satisfied.
It is sited on a very busy road at the foot of the Siena city wall so is very convenient to the sights of Siena.
Simply walk across the road and ride the free escalator into the city.
We had a room at the rear of the hotel so the road noise did not bother us but the noise and voices of every other occupant of the hotel seemed to carry into our room very loudly as they climbed the staircase.
It is a very dated hotel. I would guess it was built in the 1920's but hey! it could have been the 1820's.
The staff were friendly enough, except the dinner waiters who were a bit stand offish.
Everything in the room worked, including the a/c, but it also was a bit noisy.
The breakfast was adequate, - I will never get used to having jam tart for breakfast, but when in Siena etc. etc.
The breakfast/lunch room is big but the menu at the hotel is a bit limited and the cooking average. However it was good to have an evening meal in a garden restaurant for a change.
We would not definitely refuse to go there again, but will probably try going up one standard of hotel next time.

Cosmos put us here for the May Splendors of Italy tour. You arrive here after a pleasant drive around 4 in the afternoon. My advice - push yourself to head up to Siena it is well worth it! There is plenty of place for you to relax and sit or even lie down on the Il Campo (the gorgeous city square..pedestrian only). Some folks on our tour didn't make the effort and really missed out on what could have been a nice relaxed evening.

Room was large, bathroom moderate - clean but the flush didn't work and my resourceful better half fixed it, we got a room on the quiet side but some folks got rooms facing the motorway and couldn't sleep at all - carry earplugs or an ipod to plug into your ears just in case. Breakfast was BAD. Everything was sweet and we chose to avoid the meat having read someone else's review mentioning worms in the meat. Had coffee, a sweet orange marmalade tart.

GETTING TO SIENA/AROUND
Cross the main road from Moderno, turn left and about 50 metres from the hotel is the entrance to the covered escalators leading up to Siena(which is on top of a hill). After taking 4-5 escalators up you are in Siena just behind the San Francesco cathedral. It is an austere structure but dramatic! Entry is free and inside are some nice stained glass windows that are good photo ops though they were created only in the 1900s so aren't 'history'.

Arm yourself with a map/directions from google earth and check out the siena city website to pick out shopping/eating options before you go.

Head to Il Campo for a rest and a gelato. After you're rested walk up to the Duomo and if you're looking for spectacular views of Siena and around, go into the Museum del Opera del Duomo which is right next to the striped Duomo. Pay a 12 euro entry for 2(they sell entry in pairs!) and follow signs saying Panorama. A few flights of stairs later the signs end, ask a museum curator for directions to the panorama and he will show you the spiral staircase leading up to the unfinished wall near the duomo. From up here you get great views of the city and the countryside. Worth every penny!

Then go visit the Duomo itself and walk back towards Il Campo down Via Di Citta shopping on the way! Do dinner in Siena or pack dinner if you're tired, the hotel restaurant was really bad according to folks who ate there. Pack stuff for breakfast the next day too if you can.
