Reviewed 12 September 2013

We booked this hotel based on our Wedding planners (Original Tuscan weddings) positive reviews and what an amazing pick it was! Using GPS to get to the hotel helped a lot. The hotel from the outside looks really simple once we stepped into our room and saw the view we were taken aback from the beauty of the sights. The...

We were absolutely delighted when we walked into our room. We had made sure to ask for a room with a good view (6th floor, I think it was), and had been assigned a triple deluxe room at around 180 euro (including breakfast for 3 people). Probably the friendliest staff I have ever met at a hotel, even humorous. It...

We have just returned from a 7 night stay at the Athena Hotel as part of a Titan package trip to Tuscany. The Hotel is ideally located just a short delightful stroll to the centre of town and on arrival we found the superior room to be spacious and quaint if slightly old fashioned. Throughout our stay the reception staff...

Hotel is deceiving. Looks nondescript on the outside but inside is the most comfortable and service oriented hotel we've stayed at during our trip to Italy. Staff is fabulous and the food was very good. There was a complimentary bottle of chianti, sparkling water and biscotti waiting in our room (slippers too). Beware tho, if you want a western (eggs)...
