“An unexpected treasure”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 May 2014

We ended up at Hotel Athena because others were sold out and it was to our good fortune. The staff goes out of their way to make you welcome and comfortable. Rooms are cozy and clean, the terrace bar a delight with among views and good service. A few minutes stroll to il campo with beautiful views surrounding this lovely hotel. I would recommend it highly!

We stayed here for three nights and had a room on the top floor with lovely views of the countryside. Short stroll to the main attractions of Siena. Staff were always helpful and friendly. Food on the restaurant was great. Hotel met all our expectations having looked it up on TA prior to our stay.

Recently stayed at this lovely hotel! Do not think twice, book it today! After a travel day had dinner at the restaurant that was delicious! Breakfast was amazing with eggs, meat, quiche, fresh fruit and the best cappuccino in Italy! So close to city center and sights yet on a quiet street. The rooftop bar is so relaxing with a breathtaking view. However the best part of Hotel Athena is their
friendly staff: Andrea, Suzanna, Thomas, Linda and many others! When I recall this fabulous
Italian vacation its the wonderful people I met that will first come to my mind! Thanks Hotel Athena!

Room Tip: try to get a balcony room to enjoy those beautiful views!

I choose this hotel after researching Trip Adviser and also that it has a free car park.
We arrived with no trouble parking in the ample car park at the rear of the hotel. Nothing but excellent, friendly service at the reception from start to finish of our break.
The roof terrace bar was an absolute gem, beautiful views, reasonable bar prices and lovely service from staff.
Having seen the hotel restaurant menu,it look very good so we decided to eat at the hotel one evening, which I don't normally do as I like to go out and about. The dinner was fabulous, with impeccable, professional service from the staff. This was much better than the meal we had out the previous evening in a local restaurant in town!
We had the economy room, which was an ample size, large bathroom and all necessary amenities. It was extremely clean everyday and with sweets left on our pillows each night. I wasn't expecting a view, or balcony etc for the room we had paid for, but we had an lovely view from the roof window which was an added bonus.
Town was a 10 min walk away and the car park was easy to exit to get away into the countryside.
All in all a brilliant hotel and excellent value for money.

Dear Meg ,
good to read you! Thank you very much indeed for your review. All the comments are really welcome but one with this rating is so much appreciated. All the opinions about us are useful to improve the services but your words help us to let know the people how important is for us the satisfaction of our guests.
A big thanks comes from our Maitre Marco and Aldo and our Chef Francesco always ready to prepare some typical and delightful Tuscan dish.
Our colleagues from the roof bar like to thank you too for the beautiful words , you are just right our San Marco Terrace is a gem with a great view over the landscape
We’re so happy to see that you had such good time with us and we want to thank you once again for your beautiful words and we are all waiting for your return to Siena. You’ll be always welcome!

Warmest Regards
Andrea

The hotel was modern and bright inside, our room light and airy with reasonable size ensuite shower room. The room was very clean, bed linen changed daily which is not always the case in other hotels we have visited. The only slight minus was poor pressure in the shower. The breakfast was an excellent buffet, the evening meals good without being remarkable. There is a lovely terrace on the 7th floor with wonderful views over the town walls and beyond. For those that can afford it there are rooms with the same view as the terrace. We would definately stay in this hotel again if we come back to Siena

Room Tip: Ideally choose rooms on 6th and 7th floors overlooking the views, they are more expensive but worth...

Used Hotel Athena as our first stopover on a five day cycling tour of Tuscany, Sardinia, and Corsica. After a very hot day in the saddle we were very pleasantly surprised when we arrived.

With a thirty man party something nearly all goes wrong or is forgotten but in the case of Hotel Athena everything had been sorted. Good secure parking for our cycles and support van, and very friendly reception staff.

Our evening meal was plentiful and well marshalled by the head chef who personally visited each of the group tables. The breakfast was the same and much appreciated by a team with 100miles of Tuscan heat in front of them.

As someone who makes frequent group bookings, this hotel was one of the easiest ever to deal with. As well as an excellent deal, very quick to respond to communications, and most of all, made us feel more than welcome.

Just a little difficult to find especially without a SatNav, but very much worth the hassle when we eventually got there... Will stay again if we visit Siena in the future

Wow what a nice review , you have perfectly described the hotel Athena from the moment of the booking till the check out time , we love to make feel our guests more than welcome, this is just our style , professional and efficient.
Our chef Francesco will be will be enthusiastic to know that you all appreciated his effort , so will be all the restaurant staff , you are right about the breakfast ,our buffet is one of the best in the all city.
Another thing that make the hotel Athena special , is our free and secure car park , and the city center is only at 10 minutes walking distance .
It had been a pleasure to host you in our hotel and we, everybody, hope to see you soon again in the narrow medieval streets of Siena. We’ll be honored helping you again in the construction of your next Tuscan holiday.
