Had intended to turn up in siena and find somewhere really central. Didn't work. Booked here on line and thought it looked miles out, but it really is a ten minute stroll to the centre,and for the money, it's one of the nicest places I have ever stayed at. My room (3) has flagstones, beautiful old furniture, a desk, a television( which I haven't turned on) , a gorgeous view over the hills, beautiful painted ceilings. In short, I feel I have got a great deal. The breakfast, which I have had in the lovely garden has been good quality continental standard. On arrival, hot sweaty having struggled with a heavy,ruck sack, I asked for a gin and tonic, and had it in the garden. I settled my billtonight, and see that it cost me 5euro, which for,siena, is nothing.
The staff are friendly. There,are dishes with sweets. The reception smells lovely. The flagstones and the rugs and the,fittings are all delightful. I am reluctant to go, but intend to come back very soon, and bring others. I feel like I have had a great holiday. The ambience of the,Santa,caterina,has,had,a lot,to do with this. Oh, and the room is beautifully clean, and well made up,every day.
