      Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Santa Caterina Siena

      A perfect 40th Wedding Anniverary celebration.

      from

      Perfect setting on 25/26th July 2004 for our Ruby Wedding date on our tour of Pisa, Siena, Florence and San Gimignano. Proprietor (Lorenze) perfect in organising those little extras. The garden setting for breakfast was intimate with beautiful views. A room at the rear of the hotel was very quiet with the panorama of the Tuscan countryside. Highly recommended.

      Loved the Villa Santa Caterina

      from

      I highly recommend the wonderful Villa Santa Caterina. Just outside the Porta Romana, and about a 10-15 minute from the Campo, it is small and charming, with a cosy lobby and comfortable, pleasantly decorated rooms. Excellent service and friendly, helpful staff. It is a converted villa with a beautiful garden where an abundant buffet breakfast is served, and views of the Tuscan countryside that go on forever. I loved this charming hotel and felt very comfortable here.

      Good choice

      from

      Stayed here in early June 2004 and would stay here again. We were traveling with our college age daughter and the room we had was very nice. The hotel itself is charming, and has a lovely breakfast room and outside seating area. The staff were polite and helpful.

      Hotel Santa Caterina is a gem!

      from

      My wife and I stayed at this hotel May 14-16th and really enjoyed it. It may not suit everyone's taste, as the room layout is unusual (their standard room would not comfortably accomodate four people but is just fine for two) and there is a ten minute walk into the city. However, the staff (Lorenza, Joseph and Roberto) are among the nicest young hoteliers that we have encountered and will go out of their way to make your stay a pleasant one. The hotel garden overlooks the rolling hills south of Siena and is a perfect, romantic spot...the view is breathtaking. This hotel is excellent value for the money and we would return without hesitation.

      Too cramped!

      from

      My family of four stayed here for one night, and then we had to leave.

      We asked for a room for four which was only comfortable for two. The cotts my kids slept on were uncomfortable. The queen size bed was up in a very clostrophobic loft. OK for 20-somethings, not for us!

      Wonderful hotel

      from

      My family stayed at the Hotel Santa Caterina on December 21-24. We had one of the family apartments on the rear of the property. It had 2 bedrooms and 2 pullout chairs in the living area (which were actually comfortable!). We had a living area with satellite TV and a large dining table. The bedrooms were a bit small but were 2 twins pushed together for king size beds and they were firm and comfortable. The apartment was very clean and the view out of the back was beautiful...the sweeping tuscan hills and valleys!!! The owner was very pleasant and the breakfast was a nice buffet. The walk into town takes about 15 minutes but is very nice and it goes quickly (even in the cold weather)! We had a lovely stay and would return to the Hotel Santa Caterina!

      Lovely, superior 3* hotel

      from

      A beautifully maintained hotel just outside the city walls - an easy and picturesque 15min stroll into the heart of Siena (Unless you're particularly infirm, or averse to walking through stunning medieval towns).

      Our room was very tastefully furnished - wooden furniture, tiled floors, immaculate bathroom etc. As other reviews have commented, there can be quite a bit of traffic noise in the rooms alongside the road, although the double glazing reduces this. But the rooms at the back, with dreamy views of the Tuscan countryside, are definitely the ones to get if you can - will make all the difference to your stay. Staff seemed pleasant and efficient. Having breakfast in the lovely garden area, overlooking the surrounding countryside, is a huge bonus.

      Overall, we had an excellent, romantic stay here and would definitely go back!

      Careful of This Hotel

      from

      Great location but at a very busy intersection at one of the main gates. Can be quite noisy.

      Really a terrific place

      from

      I just returned from a 3 night stay at Santa Caterina in Siena (05/23-05/26)We absolutely loved it! We requested a room with a view and it was perfect, overlooking the Tuscan countryside. Our room was bright, spotless and spacious enough for us. The big bonus was the beautiful garden in which to enjoy breakfast(which was very nicely done) or an afternoon drink. The garden is nicely manicured, with a lovely selection of flowers and greenery. The staff was helpful, a little standoff-ish, but never rude. They were accomodating, and even provided us with train and boat schedules to get us to Sorrento. We would heartily reccommed this hotel, even though it is definately a 20 minute walk to Piazza del Campo. The walk is pleasant and can be done at any hour safely. Kudos to Santa Caterina.

      After the excitement of the horse race the night before this morning it was time for some practical activities - the laundry. We caught the bus into town armed with two big bags of laundry and with some help from an elderly Italian lady who showed us where to put the powder and we were in business.

      While the washing was doing its thing, we went off to the Duomo. The streets are full of ...
