This place is more Motel than Hotel-- it's modern and clean, but too far from everything to make it an easy walk. It's a bit isolated-- there's nothing much to do in the immediate vicinity. The staff was polite and helpful. The room looked nice, but there were problems. The shower stall leaked so much that water was pooled an inch deep in the bathroom, and there was no drain so the only way to dry the floor was with the rest of the towels. The alarm clock went off at 3 AM-- I hadn't set it, and I have now learned to check. The TV came on by itself at 4, probably the work of the alarm-setter. Overall, a surreal one-night stay. It was ok, but I'd stay in town if I hadn't waited until the last minute to make reservations.

Room Tip: Check the alarm! Check the timer on the TV!!

New hotel slightly out of town, in a small-business area. Helpful staff. There is a bus stop right outside that takes you to the railway station (line 3) or to the center (line 54). You can walk back downhill from the center to the hotel in about 25 minutes. The hotel is located in between some busy roads, but there is no traffic noise inside the rooms; very well isolated. Good new rooms, new beds, well equipped; no english-language tv-channels though. Mediocre breakfast. P.S.: If you are at the railway station and you want to catch bus 3 to the hotel, you need to cross the square, go into the mall, turn left, and when you see the escalators on you right, turn left again. Here you find the elevator to the basement level. Once outside in the tunnel you will find the bus stop. Btw, taxi will take about 10 minutes.

This was a very nice hotel just on the outskirts of Siena. The breakfast is excellent. We had to leave early the next morning and the full spread was available at 6am. The bus stop is right outside to hotel and so it is no issue in getting into Siena itself. The hotel staff are very friendly and efficient. The rooms are large and very comfortable. Just a point to note, the hotel is actually easily accesible as it is right off the highway but the first time you see the area it was actually confusing for us. Our GPS did not recognise Via Massetana, 70 and said it did not exist. It took 20 minutes but eventually we did find it. It is still a lot less effrot than having to park in Siena and parking is free. Would have no hesitation recommending this hotel for functionality and value for money.

Hotel San Marco worked well for us. The hotel was easily reached by car and had a large parking lot attached. The local bus was nearby and a quick ride got you to the center of the walled town where there was much to do and see. Bus tickets were available at the hotel. The staff at the front desk were very pleasant and helpful. Although the room was basic, it was clean, quiet and comfortable with a good sized bathroom. The European breakfast was adequate with fresh cappuccinos made for you. Good value for your money.

On the fringe of Siena with easy access to the city, this (new) hotel is probably business-oriented, but served us well for two nights. Rooms are very comfortable and spotlessly clean. An excellent breakfast buffet. Free parking. Good-natured staff.
