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!

Lunch in the Piazza del Campo was as one expects...over priced, so so food but great to sit and watch the square and world go by. Well worth it. After lunch we practised our bargaining to great surprise of the merchant...not like Istanbul for sure. Some success. Then we retraced our steps to ...

The Duomo was indeed palatial with frescoes, mosaics and statues by Michael Angelo and others, plus a wonderfully complicated tower with it's windows increasing in numbers upwards. The side area was also interesting because they started to expand it in the mid 15C but plague crippled the town ...
Ok, truth time. I've left out a few details of the trip so as not to worry anyone, but I've been very unwell since getting on the plane to Florence. Most people know how much I really don't like Drs, much less hospitals, so when I find myself googling things like "how do Americans go to the hospital in Italy" you know it's bad. But I didn't go to the Dr (just couldn't figure it out), I figured I was really dehydrated from the flight. By Sun morning I was so tired of ...
... It is less impressive but its importance cannot be understated as it is the foundation of the Duomo. The top of the hill did not have enough square footage for the Duomo so they built the Baptistry under where the Duomo would be built. The Baptistry extended the foundational "ground" upon which the Duomo would be built. The bronze relief around the base of the font were beautiful. The frescos on ...
