My wife and I arrived late at the Hotel Athena in Siena, Italy and they kept their dinning room and kitchen open for us. We sat on the balcony and had a late night dinner over looking Tuscany. The next two nights they recommended restaurants that were outstanding -- one a mom & pop with hand written menus and the other un scale that was actually a restaurant in a cave. On the third day we had to leave early before breakfast and they packed us a wonderful breakfast to go. I highly recommend this place if you are planning to visit Siena.

This hotel, arranged by our travel agent was just what we needed! Clean, quiet with very attentive service and a terrace with panoramic views of the sunset while sipping on your favorite beverage. The front desk staff was extremely attentive, arranging private tours and transportation as well as walking instructions to find the sights of the city. When we return to Siena, this would the first choice for our stay.

We were lucky to spend three nights at the Hotel Athena on our recent visit to Siena. Our room was comfortably large, nicely furnished, with a very comfortable bed with nice linens. The outdoor terrace and bar opened every evening at 5 (this is contingent on good weather, which we were fortunate to have); it's a lovely place to have a drink and enjoy the lovely view of the countryside and the sunset. Breakfast was included in our rate; the selection of breakfast items was good, with freshly baked pastries, scrambled eggs, a variety of meats, cheeses, and fruits, plus cereal and yoghurt. Guests were expected to make their own coffee from the espresso/coffee machine. The staff was helpful throughout; the receptionists were gracious, the bartender very professional. The historic center of Siena is a fairly easy 15-minute walk from the hotel (prepare for some hills along the way). The nearest restaurants are about 8-10 minutes away by foot; we didn't try the hotel dining room except for breakfast. We'll certainly consider the Hotel Athena again when next we're in Siena; it's convenient to the center of town, and really nicely appointed.

We spent three nights at the Hotel Athena. Positive attributes include its excellent location, so you can walk to the Duomo in ten minutes and Il Campo in 15-20 minutes. Yet, you can still drive and park free in the hotel’s parking lot. Parking is crowded, as the hotel is quite popular; it is also a little challenging if your vehicle is large. Other positives are the room is clean and the staff is very friendly and helpful. A small positive is the included breakfast, which is certainly more than the standard Italian breakfast; it wasn’t great, but it was more than adequate. The only real negative would be that the room we had was rather small. Looking at the floor map (for fire exit), it appears that those on the other side of the hall are larger. I don’t know if there is any difference in price or why particular rooms are assigned. I did see three people coming out of one of those rooms, however. In summary, I will probably stay here again.

Siena is one of my favorite cities in the world and the Hotel Athena is a wonderful venue from which to explore this great city and Tuscany more generally. The rooftop patio for drinks at sunset is a must. The staff are top notch and very helpful.

If you ever want to see how clean a hotel is lose your wedding ring! We had stayed at the hotel for four nights and on departure day I mislaid my wedding ring (we discovered later my wife had "tidied it away" by mistake). Until we found it we took the room apart, moved furniture, stripped beds, looked behind sinks - everywhere. After about half an hour Mrs B turned to me and said had I noticed how clean the place was? When she pointed it out I did notice it was spotless and we had been in places you wouldn't usually go. So full marks to the hotel for the clean rooms. In fact if I could I would give this hotel 41/2 stars because only two things let it down - of which more later. First the good stuff. The hotel is no more than ten minutes walk from the centre of Siena on a quiet street. The rooms are not huge but are certainly sufficient for a couple. Good European air conditioning (which didn't blow out icy blasts at 200 miles an hour like the Brunelleschi), very comfortable bed AND bliss of bliss they serve breakfast until 1100 every day. Other hotels please take note. The view from our balcony was amazing. Reception staff multilingual, knowledgeable and fun. All in all a bit of a find and one we hope to return to. What let it down? Well, and this the hotel can do nothing about, being so close to the city centre space is at a premium so the only outside space available to sit outside is the terrace, which on the photographs looks very good. While the view is, the terrace is a bit cramped and its where they serve drinks and food so we didn't feel like just sitting there reading a book. A garden would have been great and a pool would have been bliss but that would probably double the prices and I don't see where they could put it. Don't let it put you off but be aware it is what it is. The other thing disappointing was the one evening meal we had at the hotel. The food wasn't bad but it was probably the least favourite meal we had on holiday. The service was more miss than hit and it was expensive for what we had. Which is strange because breakfast food was great. Again, don't let it put you off, it could have been a bad night and even it was the norm Siena has so many great restaurants you won't starve. And the very many plus points of this hotel far outweigh the few not so good things.

We really enjoyed our stay at Hotel Athena, which is closely situated to the city centre but just outside of the city walls so it nice and quiet. The lady receptionist was very helpful answering our queries. The rooftop terrace was amazing and the bartender served excellent and delicious cocktails, definitely worthwhile.

Response from HotelAthena Siena, Altro at Hotel Athena
Responded 12 Aug 2022
Dear Marion, Thank you for choosing the Hotel Athena for your stay in Siena, and thank you for the beautiful review. We would only like to specify that we are INSIDE the city walls, thus in the City Centre of Siena. What we are is outside the limited traffic area so that our guests can come and park their cars without having to ask for a permit first. Come back soon! Kindest regards The Staff

Dear friendly reception staff, many thanks for the very nice stay. Also the rental bikes were perfect and a fantastic service. Very nice outside patio bar with a view over siena. I would highly recommend this hotel. One advise would be: Upgrade your breakfast items and breakfast room. Also the staff is too much stressed in service, no friendly faces with a smile. Coffee quality is not good.
