I'm not satisfied because there is no Internet in rooms , poor service at breakfast . Lady on breakfast watch every peace I took from self-service , is it my problem if I like to eat a lot? But the hotel is near city of Siena , and only because of that is good . This is my experience and I hope it never happens again

This hotel is a short 15 minute walk into the walled city and is located in a nice, but busy area. The staff are very friendly and helpful. There is an outside terrace that has a nice view (have a picnic and wine there). Now the bad news: The rooms are beyond small and the walls are thin. Breakfast is in a nice outside patio area, but is sparse.

Room Tip: ask for one on the top floor, provided you are prepared to carry the baggage.

Perfect location, just down the road from the Romana Gate into old Siena. Charming like crazy. The view is breath-taking from our room. Very good breakfast. Michael at the front desk is amazing. Got us easily on the road to Montalcino, then the next day to San Gimignano. You will love it. A great value for the price. Easy to find, free parking, easy to venture out to other parts of Tuscany. Very homey and cozy. Lovely.

Room Tip: Our room was very quiet, had a great view. I heard the rooms on the first floor are bigger, but we...

We stayed at Porta Romana in the first week of October/2012. We choose the hotel because of the amenities and the location near one of the "Portas" of the city.
We stayed in a room on the second floor with a marvellous view to the hills, and to the countryside. The room and bathroom had good size and were very clean.
The main point is that the hotel was just a little walk to Porta Romana and we were able to reach the old city in few minutes.
The staff was friendly and the only aspect that they should take care is the breakfast that is very basic, with few offer of fruits, bread and cheese.
Strongly recommend this hotel. Lovely place.

Room Tip: Choose rooms in the main building and in the 1st or 2nd floor. they have a beautiful countryside vie...

We stayed here in September 2012. We made it our "home base" during driving tour of Tuscany hill towns. Easy to reach and good parking. Within easy walk of Siena and easy drive of other towns. Nice spacious room and bath. Wonderful breakfast. Very friendly staff. Lovely olive trees, rosemary plants and restful patio area. Hated to leave!

This hotel was perfect for our needs. The room was small but very clean, the bathroom was tiny. Free parking and a short walk to the centre of Siena. Breakfast was good. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Our room had an amazing veiw over the Tuscan countryside! Would stay there again.

Lovely hotel just outside the walls of the city center! The people working in the hotel are so helpful and kind. The views of the Tuscan countryside are also pretty incredible! Although it is a little ways out of the center of town, it makes the experience more peaceful.
