This was our first trip to Siena and we couldn't have been happier staying at the Athena Hotel. The hotel is gorgeous and the weather was lovely. Our deluxe room was large and spacious, very clean and quiet with an enormous bathroom and our balcony had beautiful views of the Cathedral and the surrounding hilltop countryside. The front desk staff... More

The hotel is just 7 minutes walk from the heart of Siena - a nice walk that makes me feel like a local. The rooms are enormous, the staff is excellent and all speak very good English. Very good breakfast. A large open sitting area and also a cozy spot by the bar - two lovely places to relax. The... More

This hotel is right outside the walled city, and provides the perfect location for exploring Siena. Our room was nice, and had a beautiful view of the city walls. The nicest thing about this hotel, in my opinion, was the very thoughtful and friendly service by the staff. Everyone was welcoming and helpful, and really made us feel right at... More

The location is excellent, with parking. The staff is very helpful. The breakfast was very nice. The only down side to this hotel was the lack of "hot" plugs in the room for charging when you take your card out.

The views from the room ( and the terrace bar if you don't have a view room) are great. Room was lovely, staff was helpful and pleasant, free minibar was a nice touch (although it had limited content). They did cancel our room key after day 3 of a 4 day stay, and skipped replacing facial tissues, but these are... More
