The rooms themselves are fine for a hotel room. Comfortable bed, decent bath. The hotel staff is very helpful: I would say they are the best part of the hotel. All spoke excellent English for those who don't speak italian.

I would avoid breakfast, as it was crowded and not great. You can get a much better experience at any local bar for only a few euros.

Th outdoor patio on the 7th floor offers a good after dinner drink experience with a view.

The underground parking helps me feel the car will avoid theft and break in, which does happen in this part of the world. Sienna is a small walking city, so it was conveni r not location. Also, very easy to take the train up to Florence for a day trip.

I like Siena as a central local in Tuscany, but I think my preference is to stay outside the city.

For those who want to be centralized in the ciyt, this is not a bad choice.

Room Tip: Do not get a balcony room. There is a daycare across the street and is noisy from 7:30 until 6.

Dear Andrew,

Such a pleasure to read your words! We'd prefer a top rakin' review, but...that's life.

In fact many guests choose us first for our strategic position then, they can appreciate all our services from our lengthy and delightful breakfast to the gorgeous view from the roof terrace. By the way, the local bars are beautiful but I doubt they can serve hot and cold breakfast as we do.

All our staff wants to thank again and waits for your return to Siena, perhaps, why not, throughout this year, Siena deserves more time to be appreciated at 360°. About that, please do not hesitate to contact us, we'll be honored to arrange you the best treatment.

Warmest regards

Ronny

Our family (2 adults and 2 teenagers) stayed ad Hotel Athena in June. It was quite easy to reach the the hotel by car. The staff at reception was helpful and I heard them speak Italian, German, French and English (fluently). The room was ok and the breakfast was great. It took only a few minutes to walk to Il Campo, very nice! I think we choose the same hotel next time we visit Siena.

From the moment we arrived and were greeted by the friendly and efficient reception staff it was apparent this hotel was managed and run to the highest standards. The standards and cleanliness of the public areas and bedrooms were exemplary and our room on the 8th floor was both large and comfortable.
The hotel is well situated on the verge of the city just 10 minutes walk from the main square.but for older retired folks like us it should be noted there is a little hill climbing to do which is if course one of the features of Siena. I had previously researched restaurants in the town for dinner but not wishing to retrace our steps in the evening booked the hotel restaurant. I was not to be disappointed as the outdoor terrace restaurant overlooking the countryside provided an excellent meal with a good menu and wine choice at a totally reasonable prices for the standard of hotel and location. The ambiance was perfect, the staff friendly and efficient and as such I had no hesitation booking it for a second night and binning my prior researched local restaurants.
Should I be in the Siena area again I would certainly stay at this hotel again, highly recommended.

Perfect service, very friendly and competent. Excellent restaurant with good choice and quality.
Very clean and propper.
Room was little bit noisy (just 1 floor under the reception - very loud in the morning).

We only spent one night in sienna at the Hotel Athena. It was a bit difficult to find, but after we did we found the staff and hotel to be excellent. We upgraded our room(probably not necessary) but we enjoyed the view and the additional little touches to the room. The rooftop bar was a lovely place to unwind after a day of both travel and then exploration of Sienna. One of the great things about this hotel was that they allowed us to keep our car parked in their rather small lot after we checked out on Monday and continued our touring of the city. It was really the only "classic" hotel we stayed in and it was a gem

Room Tip: 7th floor executive rooms were lovely

My wife & I were delighted by this hotel. Just inside the wall of the old city, with complimentary parking and b/fast, and 10 minutes walk to the Duomo and square. The staff are helpful, courteous and welcoming. The rooms are spacious and comfortable, and the Terrace offers wonderful viewing of the Tuscan scenery over a drink (or two). Only spent one night here - would have liked to stayed many more. Highly recommended.
