“make sure you ask for a room away from the road”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 June 2012

This is a lovely hotel with an amazing view across the tuscan coutryside
Its a short walk out of the Siena walls which is nice
Be sure to ask for a room overlooking the tuscan hills. Half the rooms face the road, and although the windows are glazed the traffic noise is awful

Room Tip: Rooms overlooking the tuscan countryside are quiet otherwise be prepared not to sleep

We would definitely stay in this hotel again. The location in outside the walls of Siena, but it is only a short walk into town. The staff was extremely helpful and made wonderful dinner suggestions. The view was spectacular from the garden where breakfast served. We enjoyed our visit to Siena and this hotel.

Hotel Santa Caterina is lovely and has a convenient location for travelers who want to spend a few days exploring Siena. Food and service were excellent, as was the garden in the rear of the hotel. The only drawback was the size and layout of the room (Room #7, which you should avoid at all costs), which was advertised as a triple room. The room has a small sleeping loft, just big enough for two beds and a cot, and then a spiral staircase leading down to a tiny (5' x 5') foyer and a bathroom. The foyer was just big enough for 3 people to stand in with their suitcases next to them, so there was no place for us to sit or relax in the room, nor could we all unpack or pack our suitcases at the same time. Given the price of the room, I thought it was a rip-off.

We just returned from a 10 day visit to Italy. We were fortunate to be able to spend 4 days at the wonderful Hotel Santa Caterina. Upon arrival we were upgraded to the "apartment", which includes two bedroom, two bathrooms, a dining table and sitting area (plus a private patio). The real surprise was when they opened the shutters to expose a gorgeous view of the Tuscan hills! The staff was the friendliest we encountered during our vacation. They were more than happy to accommodate us with tours, restaurants, and even letting us entertain our son's study abroad travel group. I am still missing the breakfast and the great service we received. While the hotel does sit just outside the city walls, we felt it was the perfect location and made the walk to town several times a day! Thank you Hotel Santa Caterina for great memories and photos! (forgot to mention the beautiful garden area! Perfect for some reflective moments with a glass of vino!)

Excellent hotel, it is lovely, quaint and in fine condition. It has a gorgeous garden in the back with spectacular views and tables , chairs for relaxing. Our room ( #1), was lovely, with a nice open window that looked out onto the garden. The breakfast and breakfast room is stunning and delicious! Great fresh fruit, wonderful coffee. The location is ideal, very close to the Porta Romana, within 15 minutes of the center of Siena - very convenient. This place has old world charm and is run by efficient and customer service staff.

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
