We spent five nights here this past October and we were very satisfied with the property. Our room was extremely clean, spacious, and comfortable. The breakfast selections were generous and varied. We ate in their restaurant one night because of the rain and we were very satified with our meals.

Hotel exceeded our expectations. Great location with parking. Large 3 bedded room with all facilities, complementary mini bar (soft drinks and water) and breakfast with extensive selection of fruit, cereals, eggs, pastries etc. All the staff were helpful and friendly.

Dear guest, we are very glad to read your positive review! The only "safe" access to the Athena is through Porta San Marco on the west side of the city... that is the reason why we have a wonderful view of the sunsets! Regards, Katia More

Loved this hotel. Great location and friendly staff! The room was spacious with a nice balcony. Loved little things like complimentary water and juice, extra pillows, hair dryer, places to hang clothes. Pretty hotel and great breakfast. Short and pretty walk into Siena and could drive into the parking lot (Siena itself does not permit driving). The only complaint was... More

We stayed three nights and after the first night were given a free room upgrade, because frankly the first room, called "standard" was poor. However the staff were proactive and resolved the issue as soon as they could. It was also my birthday and they left a card and bottle of wine in the room. The restaurant is also very... More

We have stayed at the Hotel Athena twice, and have found it to be a great value, very comfortable and convenient. The breakfasts were wonderful, the service everywhere in the hotel was very friendly and efficient, and parking - a premium within a medieval city - is included.
