We had such a wonderful stay at Hotel Santa Caterina! The staff was incredible and went above and beyond to help us get reservations at the local restaurants. The views from breakfast are breathtaking. Big shout out to Lisa at Beach Bum Vacations for making our trip such a success and so special.

Dear Rojanayol, thank you for writing about our Hotel. Critics are always welcomed here: it’s a good way to improve our service in order to make our guest’s stay as comfortable as possible. However, in your review, we find something not really coherent. You first stated that our Hotel is out of town: which is correct indeed. It’s one of...

Old building with stylishly decorated, large rooms, very clean. Mine looked out onto the fabulous garden and was super quiet. The garden has a great view of the Tuscan hills. Classy service, loved the breakfast room. Personally, I enjoyed the 10 min. walk to the old city, especially passing through the stately Roman gate. Great value overall.

We stayed two nights at this attractive hotel and thoroughly enjoyed it.

We stayed at the Hotel Santa Caterina for a second time. The first time was outstanding and we knew our mothers, aged 81 and 85, would love the garden, sipping wine looking out over the Tuscan countryside, as well as the ample breakfast with everything one could desire. The Caterina was as remembered...perfect!

This was our fourth trip to Italy, and the first time we were going to stay in Siena. On an earlier trip to Italy we did a day visit, and thought that Siena would be a good central location for daily tours of the Tuscan countryside and hill towns.

We stayed here one night. We found the room clean and the bed comfortable. The hotel is outside the old Roman gate and about a 20 minute walk to the main sites and most restaurants.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Santa Caterina Hotel in Siena offers more than a bed and a breakfast service. Housed in a renovated 18th-century patrician villa, it is a small and cosy hotel lying just a few metres from Porta Romana (Roman Gate), one of the medieval accesses to the town centre of Siena.If you are looking among all the hotels in Tuscany - and specifically among the hotels in Siena - for the one that can serve you both as a base for daily excursions and as a comfortable pied-à-terre within the city limits, our 22-room facility will meet your needs. All rooms have en-suite bathrooms, direct telephone, TV Sat, minibar, air conditioning, wireless Internet access, and are furnished, as the lounge is, in the typical old Tuscan style.Providing guests with the cheerfulness and cosiness of a typical Siena’s bed and breakfast, Santa Caterina guarantees much more. The wide and luxuriant garden with its veranda where breakfast is served can offer you what other Siena hotels cannot, that is, a view over the splendid Siena landscapes that will paint before your eyes every morning unexpected, changing colour shades among hilly lines. The refined but homely atmosphere and its privileged location, make this hotel the ideal place for a romantic and pleasant stay in the land locals love to call the old-fashioned way, "Terra di Siena", the land of Siena in Italy's heart. At Santa Caterina, “hotels in Siena” means home. Come and enjoy our home! ... more   less
