                    7.8

                    reception was particularly helpful and the hotel is a nice quiet location but only a ten minute walk to the centre of siena. No particular charm in hotel but clean and comfortable.

                    9.2

                    We liked the staff, easy internet access, room design and comfort, BBC News access on TV, generous breakfast

                    Location inside the old city of siena in walking distance to all attractions

                    The staff were very helpful and assisted us in all that we needed. Breakfast was very good and also hotel is suitable for young children.

                    The hotel is situated rather near the city centre and the train station. About 15 min by walk. Rather good and big enough room and bathroom. Nice breakfest room. Very helpful stuff.

                    Good variety in the breakfast and confortable room

                    Good location and easy to get there from the railway station (road signs). Kind and helpful staff. The bedroom was quite large.

                    Problem with hot water under shower, the sink faucet was working fine. Thin walls, it was a bit noisy in the morning.

                    Well the balcony off our room was nice, however it certainly wasn't maintained! It needed some tending too, sweeping, weeding a little clean up! The bathroom was very nice. The man working the front desk on the day we arrived (Monday May 30th) was a bit rude & not helpful!

                    Having to pay for wifi connection! And the staff wasn't very helpful! The hotel needed some updating & clean up to the balconies off the rooms!

                    Reception staff is very helpful and positive. We were provided by the good room on 1st floor with huge terrace with perfect view of old Siena. Not all rooms are equipped with terraces, there are only few ones as I understood. Location is not bad, about 15 minutes walk from Piazza del Campo, however similar time from train station. For me, this location is optimal for Siena if you arrive and leave by train, as climbing to city center with heavy luggage is not pleasant thing.

                    The cleaning service should be seriously improved. For example, the maid who cleaned our room was leaving only 2 very small packages of bath gel / shampoo for 2 people, which was for sure not enough, it should be at least 2 for one person when it is combined bath gel / shampoo in such a small packages like here. One day they forgot to leave anything. However when I came with this problem on the reception, the guy here was very helpful and provided me immediately with all I needed. Second issue is soundproof. It looks like it does not exist at all. There was a football match on TV Saturday evening, and it was like the match was in my room however only my neighbours attended it via TV.

                    Clean and good size room.

                    Not sound proof so practically heard walkway and neighbouring room noises that disturb our sleep.

                    The location is excellent! We were able to walk to the center of Siena and felt safe when walking back to the Hotel in the dark. We overlooked the back of the Hotel and sun rising over old Siena was magnificent.

                    The girl that registered us wasn't overly friendly and the fellow removing dishes at breakfast removed our coffees while we were up getting more food. The breakfast buffet was great and the lady making coffees was pleasant and did a good job but the busboy was inattentive.

                    Good location with reasonable price, rooms were comfortable and quiet, some with nice patio / balconey. Breakfast buffet was great. Storage cupboards in the lobby for our bags after checkout.

                    Complimentary computer in lobby for guest use was old had a tiny monitor. Only given 15 min at a time to use and only one computer.

                    The room was very spacious. I also liked that they had a computer in the lobby for guest use. I was having trouble with my wireless all through Italy, and it was nice to not have to go find an internet cafe.

                    Front Desk staff is not very helpful. I work in a hotel, and I guess have a certain expectation of service. If a guest is saying they are going to walk to the Tour Office to rent a scooter, and that tour office is not walking distance, I would probably advise them. But no, it was a kind stranger on the street who did. Then I had to walk all the way to the train station to grab a taxi.

                    Quality of the rooms was quite poor for the price paid. The whole place is just a bit tired. Single rooms exceptionally small. Nothing particularly superior about the superior double rooms.
