    Superb

    The hotel is located in the building of the XIIIC monastery - inside Siena city walls. The whole hotel breathes history. The staff is also extremely friendly and helpful

    The reception staff was extremely helpful. Always there to answer any questions we had. The location is ideal and not too far from the city centre.

    This was one of the most pleasant stays I have experienced in a hotel.The staff were charming but discreet. The whole hotel had been, as its discription, an ex monastery/convent. This was not merely a facade. Although near the centre, the surrounding area was incredibly peaceful. The views from the rooms were magnificent.Would recommend this to anyone. I would rearely do this.

    Great location. Easy walk to the city center.

    No storage in the room, bathroom space very limited.

    Good

    Pleasant and helpful desk clerk

    The price for the second night (149 €) was very high for a not so big and ordinary hotel room.

    Fabulous

    One of the reasons for choosing this hotel was that it was an old convent and the photos were enticing. We were not disappointed. It is a lovely old building and taking breakfast in the central square or in the cloister was an atmospheric start to the day. The breakfast was ample, choices for all tastes and the hours civilized. Our room had a stunning view over the Tuscan countryside. The staff were all polite and more than helpful. There could be a disadvantage for people with difficulty walking up steps as there were a lot of steps to climb and no lift, so lugging bags up is also necessary. The room was comfortable and very quiet; our only complaint was that the tv volume was too low. Access to the centre was easy and tours were offered in the hotel for those who wish.

    Siena is hilly and the buildings old so anyone staying in a hotel like this should be aware that there will be a lot of steps to climb, and sometimes you have to carry your own bags too.

    Unable to as in the whole disappointed with the whole experiance.

    No cold water in the room, so bath and shower scalding hot only. Poor quality room, fixtures and fittings dated and felt grubby. Not the deluxe room as described. Could not wait to get out. Overall, poor!!!!

    Fabulous

    The hotel is very nice and if you like historical places, you will love it. The staff was very nice and helpfull and we really enjoyed our stay here.

    There is no elevator which means we had to carry our luggage to the second floor. The internet is available only in one room of the hotel.

    Fabulous

    The hotel is in a former monastery, which leads to interesting design of the rooms and the breakfast room. The location is perfect for people coming to see Siena. The parking option was also extremely valuable for us (parking in the cities is not an easy thing to say the least). Breakfast was very good with exceptional service (even my kids noticed !!) Everything was generally in line with our expectations for this kind of price range.

    There were 2 issues with our room (which I decided not to take up with the hotel, because we had an odd arrival time - Sunday night, when everything in Italy is dead, even many restaurants close early). One was that the airconditioner was stuck at a pre-set temperature (very low), the other was that the bathroom was not cleaned impeccably (a couple of hair strains in the bathtub - not ours :) ). Those are little things, though, and would not stop me from staying at the same hotel again, with great pleasure.

    Beautiful building with possibilities but wait for a refurbishment.

    Sadly delapidated building. Tiny room with space hacked out of it to make space for the corridor, paper thin walls so you're at the mercy of your neighbours and the plumbing, poky bathroom with mould in the shower, no view but over the improvised parking lot. Beautiful courtyard unused but for some tables and chairs.

    The executive junior suite was wonderful. You truly have the experience of staying in a monastery with charming characters. Lovely stay.

    Superb

    The location of the hotel is excellent and the rooms were better than expected - basic but very clean, good modern bathroom, air conditioning and fantastic view over the Tuscan countryside

    All as expected the hotel doesnt have a lift so carrying cases two floors wont be easy for everyone and the breakfats buffet is a bit basic and 'tinned'
