I absolutely LOVED this hotel and everything about Siena. We stayed in a 3-room suite to up the ante for our honeymoon. The view was surreal - straight out of Under the Tuscan Sun. We had a view of the countryside of Siena - with it's rolling hills and old brick buildings.
Our room was fit for royalty - it had a living room with a TV and desk, then the master bedroom, and a HUGE bathroom with a bidet, hot tub and shower. The hotel also has a wonderful rock garden area where you can eat your breakfast (comes for free with your hotel stay) with the same extraordinary view as we had in our room. You can also drink wine in their garden/patio area when the sun sets. I don't know how to describe it besides breathtaking. Their house wines are also very affordable and they have 2 types of beer - around 3-6 Euros per glass/bottle if I remember correctly.
Their breakfast was fantastic - fresh mozarella, salami, bologni, a selection of cereals and pastries (chocolate croissants, croissants, grain breads, etc.) and an automatic coffee machine (choose the mochacchino!)
Lastly, I can't forget to mention their staff. It felt like they only had 3 staff members who worked way too hard! I can't remember their names, but they were all fantastic and really catered to customer service. There was an older gentleman who gave us his honest advice about the restaurants we wanted to try. He was very kind and patient - tended to every single one of our needs. Then there was another younger male staff member who was part time server in the AM, and general grounds manager/bell boy in the PM. His English was impeccable. My husband and I got to know him a little bit, but he would sit and listen to all the hotel guests ramble on and on about their home country and adventures in Siena while cleaning up our breakfast tables. Oh and we both agreed - he was one of the best looking men in Siena! Who would've guessed?
Anyhow, we HIGHLY recommend this hotel - it was our FAVORITE hotel on our honeymoon. It's a short distance away from the town square, and far removed enough so that it's quiet at night. It's also literally a two-minute walk away from one of our favorite restaurants in Siena - GATTO (see my review on that joint).
