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!

... I got to the Ottavia stop, I hopped off and followed the instructions to get to the meeting point. Because streets are not always clearly marked, and because there are usually 5 or 6 of them branching off in every direction, navigating to get to a particular point can be very difficult! With a few pauses to reorient myself, I made it to the meeting point without too much of a delay. Upon my arrival I was awarded with a bright blue box to wear around ...
... Ate more gelato myself (had Bueno in it, which is a popular candy bar in europe, sort of like twix).
Went to the siena cathedral, sat outside it and stared at it for a while but didn't go in (too.. many.. churches..). Saw a kid's clothing store named "Original Marines". It had an american flag as its logo, appeared to be a popular chain. First Sergent Major, now Original Marines. So weird. Probably going to see stores ...
... Santo Spirito (closed) and Sant'Agostino (had a sign "Chiusura invernale" which translates to "winter closure")..nearly as good as the sign we saw last night on a restaurant (" Chiuso per turno di riposa" which translates to "Closed for weekly rest")....getting chilly now and walked out so headed back to the hotel for a small relax before deciding where to go for dinner and to admire the new (Versace!!) tie Michael bought for himself on the way to one of ...
... bare-bones - no fancy mosaics or stained glass, statues al la gothic cathedrals.
Tomorrow is our last full day in Italy so we do some final shopping and site-seeing. Perhaps a walk or two and a final dinner out. There has already been some money spent on table-cloths(Karen), and Italian pottery (Diane). I've been scouting out the shoes - oh, the beautiful Italian shoes and boots.
I think we've all enjoyed our Italian trip but, ...
... history so I decided to book a very expensive night in a hotel and enjoy the ride. I did a little bit of sight seeing in this small city before heading down into the crowds around the Piazza del Campo to see where all the action was.
I noticed that everyone was wearing a scarf with different animals and colors and figured that they belonged to the particular contrades of Siena and that I needed to take a stand and choose a side like all ...
