Hotel Santa Caterina
Ranked #5 of 40 Hotels in Siena
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 8 July 2014

This hotel was chosen by me based on Tripadvisor reviews. From the moment we arrived, I could feel the warm hospitality. The manager on duty, Laurinza was most efficient in checking in all 30 of us in record time. The 2 bell men on duty did a stand up job assisting with the handling of the luggage and getting it delivered to the rooms as well as on the bus at departure. The hotel looks pretty basic from the exterior but once inside you see the real charm. It of course is an older property but it's quite evident the management has gone to great lengths to refurbish it and maintain high standards. I was in room #19 which has the only balcony and a panoramic view of the countryside. They have free wi fi which is always a plus for me. The staff kept the breakfast items well stocked and it was quite enjoyable whether it was in the bright and cheerful breakfast room or the lovely garden. I would definitely return on my next visit.

We stayed here for three days and thoroughly enjoyed it. This hotel is just outside the city gates and is easy to walk into the city. The staff was helpful and friendly. The hotel is quaint and our room was clean and comfortable. It had beautiful window doors that opened to the courtyard. The courtyard is such a relaxing area. It looks out into the Tuscany countryside. The tables are there for breakfast and anytime you want to use it. The rooms are clean and the breakfast is great. It is quiet despite being on a Main Street. I would definitely stay here again.

Daughter booked our room as a gift and the woman on duty was so accommodating. Gave us a great room, overlooking the lovely garden and an amazing view of Tuscany. Enjoyed breakfast in the garden and just sittting outside. Staff were so helpful and courteous. Restaurant recommendations were very helpful. Best location - walking distance into the piazza and even a bus outside their door if you didn't want to walk there or back. Our best stay in our visit to Italy. Highly recommend it.

Room Tip: May be a little more than you might want to pay but well worth the $$.

My wife and I went here after some nice pictures and good reviews here on tripadvisor. We had a really great time, the view from the room and the breakfast is just sublime, the true Tuscan experience.

A special thanks to the staff for a great help with excursions, resturant recommendation etc. and would also give an extra thank to Tiziana, our breakfast hostress.

This is a lovely 350-year old boutique hotel with a rich history, some of which has been preserved through framed documents in the little lobby. There are 22 lovely rooms with all the essentials: great beds, good bathrooms, free Wi-Fi, and air-conditioning. The highlight, however, is the beautiful garden with several tables, overlooking the country-side. An atmosphere of serenity pervades. Breakfasts are excellent and served in a glassed-in room with views to the garden and country-side -- or you can eat outside in the garden. The other highlights are the excellent, friendly, and knowledgeable desk staff who have each worked there for many years, and the proximity to the town. The hotel is located near the Roman Gate, and we walked into the main square of Siena in about 15 minutes and could walk to every restaurant and really, every part of the town. The guests were from many and diverse countries. Highly recommend this hotel for a great stay in one of Italy's loveliest towns.

Room Tip: We were on the second floor with a little balcony and our friends had a room with a loft--both were...

This was our first time to Siena but a friend had highly recommended this hotel and we were not disappointed. From our welcome to our room, everything was done so well. The property is beautifully located near the Roman Gate, about a 15 minute walk from the main square. We enjoyed early evenings in the garden of Santa Caterina, reading books, drinking red wine and the stunning views of the Tuscan countryside. The staff were most helpful, whether dealing with parking our car, getting laundry done on a 2 week stay in Italy, to recommendations for restaurants. This hotel should not be missed on a stop in Siena.

A mile-40 bike ride to this hotel in hot weather (but beautiful, beautiful scenery) only to discover that we left are passports in the safe back at our last stop. Ouch. Luzio, a charming young man, at the moment running the entire hotel simply made it right. He negotiated a very reasonable cab rated to have them brought to us we went out to one of the best dining experiences of our live on he reservation he got for us at the last minute. The location is great, an easy walk to downtown Siena, and the rooms are fine. But being usually competent in the world of travel but then failing miserably to be so, we were not yet acquainted with having to be bailed out so thoroughly and with such grace and kindness. The night staff was equally courteous when then passports arrived but needed special credit card treatment. We will always have a warm place in our hearts the these lovely, helpful and patient people and will certainly be back. Thanks, again, Luzio!

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.
