We stayed at the Arcobaleno Hotel in Siena for 4 nights during the first week of May, 2008. The staff was wonderful. Upon our arrival we were given a nice map of Siena and shown the easiest way to walk into the center of Siena. Throughout our stay they answered several questions we had and were very friendly and helpful. Our room was fairly large and decorated nicely. It was also very, very clean. I was amazed at how well the room was cleaned and straightened up each day. The breakfast in the morning was not extensive but still good. We used the Internet point in the lobby and it was very fast and reliable. The charge was 3 euros for 1 hour.
It took us about 30 minutes to walk to the main square in Siena from the hotel. Because we only spent one day visiting Siena and spent the rest of the time going to other towns in the area this didn't really bother us. However, if someone was planning on spending most of their time in the center of Siena, the walk to and from the hotel might get old.
My biggest complaint about our stay was the shower in the bathroom. It was not just a shower - it was also a bidet! It was very small and I know a few people that probably wouldn't fit in it. The doors didn't close well and water collected on the floor each time it was on. I dreaded having to use it every morning. The outlet for high powered devices in the room wouldn't work so I couldn't plug in my blow dryer and had to use the one in the bathroom instead. The bathroom's blow dryer didn't work well, so I found having to use it very annoying. The room also had thin walls - we could hear people in neighboring rooms quite often. Because of these issues if we ever traveled to Tuscany again we would find a different hotel to stay in.
