I liked this hotel so well I booked here again. For starters, it is a 3 minute walk from the bus terminal. Our room was on the 3rd floor overlooking the soccer field and we were situated in what I think was an ideal locale. In 5-10 minutes, we could be at the main piazza, site of the famous il Palio (which I am attending this summer). But we took two day trips and so our guide could park right in front of the hotel to pick us (cars are not allowed in most of Siena. We were also located about 100' from Basilca San Domenico (see my review) and the home of Saint Catherine was a 3 minute walk. The staff were very helpful and the breakfast among the best in our travels. If you were lucky, you could dine on the terrace though it filled up rather quickly. We had heard that this hotel was noisy and you could hear carousing at night. Those reviews recommended a room in the back which we requested and received. Those same reviews indicated the noise came from bar activity and even though we came in at all hours, I never detected such. And I honestly looked for it. Our room was simply appointed but very nice and clean with a small frig and nice view. The internet did not always work reliably but it was tolerable. The winding staircase up was a hike (they had an elevator) but worth it because it was an architectural work of art that just invited you up and down it. I would, highly, highly, highly recommend this hotel when traveling to Siena.
