                        Amazing home with frescos and very modern and large rooms. Michel and his wife are truly wonderful people. They arranged everything. We will be back.

                        Very nice and knowledgeable staff. Great location, and free parking

                        The entrance to the parking garage is tricky, watch the sides of your car.

                        The Hotel is very well positioned in Siena and it is easy to walk to the heart of the old town. The hotel is simply furnished but very pleasant, clean and comfortable.

                        Although the hotel does have parking for guests, places are very small and limited and cannot be reserved so parking can become tricky during busier times.

                        Very friendly and compentent staff, very good value in an expensive part of the world. The standard of room decoration cleanliness and service was very high. The entire interior of the hotel is in an excellent state of decoration and is very comfortable. I highly recommend this hotel but will bring my own instant coffee and pwdered milk next time a stay.

                        Only minor issue, the instant coffee provided in the room coffee maker was decidedly not to my taste, only reason for this remark is that Italian coffee is normally of a very high standard.

                        Well managed hotel sky tv was good to have breakfast was good I was on the top floor so it was quiet, with great views also terrace on 7th floor is an excellent space providing wonderful views over the countryside very good evening meal on the edge of the city which means it is relatively quiet and a pleasant walk in to the centre

                        Internet did not work in my room so had to work downstairs in the lounge but not a big problem. This was provided free instead of having to pay.

                        Good location for visiting Siena.The superior room was small but had a balcony to relax on. Easy to walk to the centre and find restaurants. Breakfast was excellent. We did not eat in the restaurant at night.

                        We were driving and it was hard to find our way in and out of Siena to the hotel. Got lost often. The hotel has a nice terrace bar on the 7th floor with views over the country side but the bar service was so poor that people gave up trying to get drinks. There was no area to sit outside and relax, but it is a city hotel.

                        Great location, lovely terrace bar for drinks, very friendly and helpful staff. We stayed in superior room with balcony. Thoroughly enjoyed our two night stay and would highly recommend this hotel.

                        There wasn't anything we didn't like about it.

                        The View out of the Hotel Rooms are Fascinating. The Hotel is located along the old city wall, with a good view to the Tuscany Landscape.

                        Most all spoke good English or atleast some. Room was good size, we had a balcony which we had requested, The on site resturant was good, service was A-1. Had computers right next to the elevators no charge-- Great stay will go back in 2113 and bring friends.

                        Balconey overlooked the parking area, but if you smoke who cares. Also would have liked a little more help on directions to Hotel.

                        The hotel was in a good location overlooking Tuscan hills. Our room was large, comfortable, clean with a nice bathroom. The terrace area has such incredible views. Lovely hotel.

                        The hotel is beautiful and is set right outside the city of Siena...easy walking to see the shops and sights. They have a roof deck that overlooks the city to get the perfect photo. The exception staff was amazing-- very kind and courteous and even offering suggestions for places to see that weren't on my original agenda and I'm so glad I took them. The breakfast was very good and even the wait staff was incredibly attentive The parking is also very easy and plentiful.

                        The only thing I can complain about is the bathroom...very clean but a small shower. I was traveling solo and only booked a single, so maybe the other rooms have larger showers.
