The hotel is within the city walls and a very short walk away from the main attractions. The hotel staff are consistently helpful and charming throughout the hotel. The rooms are well equipped- and we finally had a room with a bath ( the first on our Italian tour). The rooms are modern- not traditional Italian. The breakfasts are very...

Perfect choice for location in Siena. Eight to ten pleasant minutes walk to the Duomo and Piazza del Campo in the historic old town.

we stayed here for one night while we were on a walking tour of Tuscany. The hotel is about a ten minute walk from the center of town, but this meant it was quiet and not quite so subject to traffic noise. The rooms were comfortable and the buffet breakfast was more than adequate. The staff were friendly and helpful,...

We procured what they told us was the best room in the hotel and indeed it could have been.

Dear Pompero F, Beautiful balcony, beautiful view but bad review.

My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our recent 3-night stay at the Athena in beautiful Siena. The hotel is a short, albeit hilly, walk to all of Siena's sights.

Our stay at Hotel Athena was superb. It is located just inside the city wall and just a 6 minute walk to the to Piazza del Campo. Whilst the hotel isn't new, it is extremely well kept and nothing is in need of repair. The age adds to its uniqueness. Hotel parking is a blessing if driving around Tuscany and...

Booked this hotel on line and took note that the standard rooms were not "recently updated" whereas the superior rooms were noted as "recently updated" and were bigger so we went the extra mile and booked the better room.
