We had an ordinairy room, really close to reception & facing onto the road, so not a good start...
But it was Palio week, so we didn't bother trying to swap as we figured they'd be chokka.
And we soon realised we didn't need to - the room is in excellent condition & very well appointed. Noise from other guests was minimal - no more than normal in a hotel.
Similarly, it was only once we opened the window that we realised how good the glazing must be to make the room so quiet. If this is the most basic room then you have no worries.
Staff are attentive & professional (even emailing me advice about travelling from Pisa ahead of our trip).
A drink on the 7th floor terrace is a lovely way to spend an hour or two in the afternoon - amazing views & great bar staff.
Shame there's no 'proper' restaurant, but with the food options in Siena that's hardly a problem.
Excellent hotel - recommended.
