This hotel was offered as an option to us as part of a visit to Siena for il Palio in August, 2010. It was a pleasant stop for three days in the city. Everything previously reviewed by many is 100%. The shower...think cruise ship shower, less 15% in size. Internet...I suffered iPhone withdrawal in Italy, and this service is for a fee. It wasn't bad for 24 hours, because they give you 24 cumulative hours (e.g., on for 2 hours, still 22 left to use whenever, not consecutively). Terrace...beautiful views, and it turns into a restaurant after 7:30 (reasonable). Snacks... nice assortment of free(!) homemade snacks in the bar all day.
Once you pry yourself out of the shower, this is a nice respite. Also, it's near a great little restaurant, Osteria Nonna Gina (free grappa at the end of the meal!)
