My partner and I stayed here for two nights and just loved the location (Siena and Tuscany in general is lovely and the views from the hotel courtyard are so picturesque...serenity!). Service from the lovely Reception staff is impeccable...if only we had this kind of service in Australia...and the sweet lady who manages the breakfast buffet in the morning makes outstanding coffee (just get the Italian-style with the frothed milk served separately...divine!). We booked a cheaper room on the ground level rather than paying the extra to go higher for a view...but we're very happy with our choice...the room is large, comfortably furnished in old-style/antiques; lovely windows and shutters that open out onto the courtyard so you can hear the birds sing and get a lovely breeze; there is a smallish flat-screen tv (couldn't find any English-speaking channels but didn't care as we weren't there to watch tv!); a very full mini-bar at very reasonable prices and a good-sized bathroom with a full bath, bidet separate to the toilet and heated towel-rails. Minor issues for us: no tea/coffee making facilities in the room and only a continental selection for breakfast (but the cold meats and cheeses selections and juices were good). These are the only reasons we aren't awarding Santa Caterina 5 stars. But please note, after two fairly disappointing stays at the Hampton by Hilton in Berlin and the Hilton Garden Inn in Mestre, it was a delight to stay in a homey, old-worldly place with character and soul and with such lovely, honest and attentive people. If we come back to Siena, we will want to stay here again.

All rooms have en-suite bathrooms, direct telephone, TV Sat, minibar, air conditioning, wireless Internet access, and are furnished, as the lounge is, in the typical old Tuscan style.Providing guests with the cheerfulness and cosiness of a typical Siena’s bed and breakfast, Santa Caterina guarantees much more.
