Historical Traveler Reviews NH Excelsior Siena
Location great; Hotel below average
Jolly Hotel Siena was below average. Stayed in an unrenovated room June 2004 which was hot, noisy and tired - poor value. No internet access available at hotel. Some staff speak English well and some don't. Location is perfect though just a short walk from Piazza del Campo.
It was okay
We stayed at this hotel in late May 2004 and were generally pleased. Our room was spacious and had recently been renovated. The room decor was very modern - while I prefer a more "old European" ambiance, it was difficult to complain because it was so comfortable. We arrived without reservations at around 9:30 p.m. and it was apparent that the dining room was closing up but they were, nonetheless, extremely gracious in agreeing to serve us dinner.
During our stay the hotel was undergoing extensive room renovations and very noisy construction started early in the morning.
Overall, it was a good stay - very convenient to the old town center. I would not have a problem with staying there again but there are undoubtedly more interesting hotels in Siena.
This is more of a response to the widely varied opinions expressed by other reviewers. I have stayed with my students groups at the Jolly in Siena three times and will again this summer. It's location is excellent --a block from the old city. The rooms are entirely adequate, as is the buffet breakfast, the service, the cleanliness, all we ask in a tour hotel. I wonder if the negative reviews are from people who expect 5-star accomodations at a 3-star price. I have 20 years of experience with students tours all over Europe. The Jolly in Siena ranks well above the run-of-the-mill; we request the Jolly year after year.
Good location in medieval Siena
I am a tour operator and have stayed at the Hotel Jolly Siena with groups many times. The location is excellent (if you don't have a car and don't have to worry about parking.) Walk across the street, through an alley, and you are in the 1300s. The rooms are smallish, as you would expect in a medieval city where space is at a premium, but clean and neat. The showers have plenty of hot water and good water pressure.
The public areas and dining rooms are large. The food is good and reasonably priced. The breakfast buffet is ample. The staff is professional.
We rated this the worst hotel in our two week stay in Italy. The bed was about eight inches from the not very clean floor. But the major problem was the shower that flooded the entire bathroom and took hours to drain. I felt worse after I showered than before. When we checked out we asked if they could call us a taxi but we were told to call ourselves because taxis are Sienas nightmare. We definitely would not recommend or stay here again.
Nice, small hotel. Very well located. Clean and friendly atmosphere.
View of Stadium
We stayed at Jolly in April and the hotel is located adjacent to the stadium, so you could sit on your balcony and watch the game; it was within walking distance of the city centre; the rooms were small but very clean and new; the hotel bar was cheerful and the internet access was not crowded. Overall, we had a very good experience at the Jolly in Sienna.
The Crappy Hotel
One of the worst hotels I have been in!

... original town. It is a great place and we really enjoyed our day here. Paul managed to con me into yet another tower climb, but I was happier doing this one and the photos were worth it. It took around 1.5 hours by a rattly old bus. Buses in Italy seem to come with two criteria.....standing room only and no shock absorbers. The standing room only thing I have beaten.....I am an expert at wheedling my way in and through (being short helps, I stay low to ground under ...
... paintings of St. Catherine's life and other biblical stories. It had very unusual, colorful and striking stained glass windows above the alter. Rather than visit St. Catherine's home, we decided to hit the road, which meant a long walk back through Il Campo and the Dolphin district before finding our parking lot, along with other Creatoile guests that had been on the tour with us. After the hour trip, we stopped at Creatoile for ...
... full full of people so it is hard to bustle our way through. The stands are like a building from Lego land, we make it to no. 23 and the seating guy has to take apart a couple of step sections to let us through.
John Cooksley , sorry mate but you would have no chance. Womby got through, and I had to hold my boobs down with one hand and suck in my tummy and squish it down with the other hand, stand on tip toe to squeeze through. Was really funny. ...
A quick decision to stopover in siena before getting us to rome was a brilliant idea- what a beautiful medieval town!!!! First thing first we need to get a photo in front of the train platform siena sign to send to our two nieces! I think they will be very excited to see we are staying in a place the same as their name!! We arrive in the arvo and find our hostel- everyone in Italy is so helpful and kind! We are always asking for directions ...
... enclosed by restaurants and cafes. Everyone goes to sit there for picnic lunches or just to visit, toddlers run around chasing pidgeons and school groups mill about taking pictures. We really felt like we were part of Italian life there.
The Duomo (cathedral) was impressive inside as well as out - the ceiling looked like it had been quilted, it was so heavily ornamented.
We actually didn't do a whole lot in ...
