Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Garden Siena
A fine hotel
We had a double in the lest costly wing in October, 2004. The room was very modern, plenty of room, and comfortable. My only wish was that they used a less strong floor cleaner - smelled like clorox! But, opening the large windows took care of that daily.
The breakfast was an excellent buffet and the cozy bar was welcoming after a day of sightseeing. The views are gorgeous and with a bus stop in front of the hotel path, you are in Siena's center in minutes.
We would stay at the Garden on a return visit.
My friends and I just returned from our trip to Siena, and we all really loved the Hotel Garden.
The staff were amazing - friendly, helpful and had a great sense of humor. The hotel itself was very clean (the review complaining about cleanliness was from four years ago - things are certainly clean now).
Some of the nice features: internet access just off the lobby breakfast (a step above those in other hotels we stayed at in Italy) Atla, the friendly bartender
We stayed at the Hotel Garden 1st to 12th September 2003. The whole experience was excellent. The service is pleasantly attentive, the food is fabulous and the whole hotel is spotless. The hotel grounds and pool area are a delight. We stayed in the Casabianca annexe - quiet, with lots of comfy seating areas and a pleasant terrace. Grey painted wardrobe and vanity units are a bit austere - but certainly did not spoil our stay!!
Great value for money
We stayed here in May 2003 and after reading the reviews I was very concerned about my booking. To my delight I found the hotel very charming and the rates very reasonable. The resturant food was great and the staff friendly. This hotel is quite dated but what do you expect for 200 euros a night. !!!!!We upgraded and stayed in the Belvedere wing of the hotel -the room was very spacious and peaceful.
The hotel is set in an excellent location just outside Siena and the views from the outside bar/resturant are lovely. The pool area was very basic but I didnt go to the hotel to sunbath so this didnt reflect on my stay but if you fancy spending hours round a pool I would suggest staying at a different hotel.
We stayed there in 2000, there were 9 of us total. Unfortunately we were only able to stay 1 nite. We loved it. They were so nice---I had broken my ankle in Rome and was hobbling around and very uncomfortable. I am a travel agent and have sent others there whenever I could. I have had all positive responses.
Never going back
I stayed at Hotel Garden four years ago. My stay was for much too long, and my family luckily found another hotel to move to-- but only after the Palio had ended. The hotel was 2 wings: while both are grimy and extremely mediocre, the wing closer to the pool is much better. We refused the first room we were shown because of a horrible stench of nail-polish-remover-type odors. While our second room was better in appearance, it turned out to have an even more nauseating smell of either fungus or dead animals. The staff was incredibly unhelpful in resolving the odor problem. The stench was so bad that we could not turn on the air conditioner (presumably where the smell originated) which made the warm Italian nights almost unbearable. Perhaps, fortunately, we left the shutters open, but, because there are no latches, our shutters banged all night long. A choice between heat & noise is not much of a choice. The food was fine, nothing memorable. I certainly would not return to Hotel Garden and wish that I had never been-- except that it does make for some very funny stories, retrospectively, of course!

So today we went into Siena again. You will see from our photos that we do look tired. That's because overnight there was a lot of lightning and thunder action – waking us several times. Only a little rain and then today it has been bright and sunny with lovely blue skies and about 15 degrees. We went back to Siena as today is market day and we have read that the Siena 'Mercato’ is the biggest and ...
... stay there!!" They stayed and they waited, and waited, and waited.... About an hour later they turned up. The Calvary are here - "Follow us" said the Sues. And they followed, and followed, around the local roads and back again, and round and round. The IPad went flat, then the phone went flat just as we arrived at The Villa. Great exhilaration that we had arrived in one piece after many scary driving experiences..narrow ...
We got up at 6am and went for a 1 hour walk to the lower part of town in Colle di Val D'Elsa. We walked down the steep narrow road to the lower part of the town and wandered through the local streets and piazza's before catching the lift back up. The upper part of town where we are staying is on top of a steep cliffed hill as is common in Italy. The lift is built inside the rock face, quite a clever concept, beats walking up the slope.
Our bus picked us up at 9 for our trip ...
We woke up early on Wednesday because had to be at the train station (close to a thirty minute walk from our apartment) at 7:45 a.m. We were Siena and San Gimignano bound!
We arrived in Siena and had a walking tour of the city. It was really neat because it was built in between hills, so every road was up and down. Siena is the home of St. Catherine of Siena (who I think is my saint from Confirmation…). They love ...
