      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.

      Wonderful staff


      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

      Loved it


      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.

      Loved it.


      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!

      ... here. Districts have a two way rival. Worse than losing the horse race (one in July and one in August) is having their rival win. Districts do anything so that their rival will not win-- including transfer of money, whipping the jockeys etc. A horse can win even if the jockey falls off. If your rival wins, you leave the race as fast as possible, shut your windows/shutters and mourn for a few days or even leave town. If your district wins, ...

      ... represent different districts of the city, they all have their own stands and colours and every contrada tries to out sing the others. The crowd too are wearing their districts colours. The horses are brought in from outside the city and are allocated at random to each contrada. The riders are amazingly bare back, a real feat to stay on as they dash round a tight circuit as they race around the piazza. It's all over in 90 seconds. Apparently the races have ...

      We returned to Colle di Val D'Elsa and showered before we walked to the lower part of town to go to a lovely restaurant for dinner. The group split into two so there were 8 of us at the restaurant. We sat upstairs outside on the roof and the meal and service were superb. We tried some local wines that the waiter recommended. We were all very pleased with our dining experience and then we had a leisurely 20 minute walk back up to the hotel.

      ... aren't big enough sponges to soak in the glory, I am glad. I am glad that the sacredness of this place can never be captured or taken even in the mind's eye. It belongs here. And while I will not leave with any picture of justice, I leave with a strong sense of awe and inspiration.
