We have just returned form a holiday in Siena. This hotel ticked all the boxes for us. We did not want a hotel in the centre but a little bit out of town. One that had a restaurant , a pool and car parking. The centre is about 30 minutes stroll away or there is a bus right outside that will take you into town. It is a busy hotel but they make you feel welcome and valued. All the staff are very helpful and friendly. The rooms are clean and comfortable, some do not have a bath so make sure you request if you need a bath. It is set in a quiet position with some nice gardens and view of the centre from the terrace. Plenty of seating. Lovely supervised pool, a little on the chilly side and good sunbeds. Tennis courts on site if you are feeling the need to expel some more energy after all the sightseeing. Atla the barman has an excellent way with all the customers and he was pleasure to watch, a lovely relaxed manner with a nothing is too much trouble attitude. The restaurant manager introduced himself to all the customers and made you feel welcome. Reception staff were helpful and suggested things to do and were very knowledgeable. The fact that we could only speak a little Italian was not a problem. There is also a bus just a few yards from the entrance that takes you to Florence in about an hour and 15 minutes. It was the ideal location to stay to explore the chianti region and some very interesting towns. We stayed 7 nights and could have still found lots more to do. The breakfast was complimentary on our deal and it was good with a selection of items including fresh fruit. Better than other hotels we have stayed at in Italy. We would have paid much more if this hotel was in the UK so we thought it offered very good value.
