    Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Santa Caterina Siena

    A perfect 40th Wedding Anniverary celebration.


    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


    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


    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!


    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!


    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


    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


    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


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

    Really a terrific place


    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.

    Contrade fountain hunt

    ... We had saved the owl till the end as I hadn't been able to identify where it was within the boundaries but we were hungry so we stopped for some gelato and I asked a traffic cop who pointed us in the right direction. Initially we walked right past it only when we turned around to go back did we notice it. It was a very small owl atop and tall skinny pole with water trickling down it, so technically a fountain?? We were lucky to see it or we would have never ...

    ... sure some Ukrainian man copped a feel before a very sweet and chivalrous older Australian gentleman noticed me struggling and allowed me on the bus after his wife. We arrived in Siena and walked to the car rental place. The door was locked and there was a note in Italian saying "Be back soon". We waited outside for 1/2 hour before I noticed another note saying "If we're not here, come to the ...

    ... promptly tossed in a vast of hot tar and beheaded, he left a legacy. For contrast the city is also dedicated to the Virgin Mary. These seemingly contrasting symbols of mythology and religion are seen on every historic building in Siena. It is particularly interesting to see many portraits of Mary breast feeding the baby Jesus.

    Siena had many rulers over the centuries. The Church remained in power until 1147. Then the Florentines ruled until 1260 (the ...

    So after almost two weeks of hitting the ground running, one needs to spend ones time contemplating under a magnificent magnolia tree in an ancient garden, with a tortoise. Steve has trotted off somewhere with tripod and camera, so just me and little T.

    ... to, Italy is the first to impose a dress code on entering a church. I was wearing a strappy dress. I comply as i have no problem with it and its respectful to do what is asked. Others are not so respectful and some in hotpants and vests are asked to leave....I observe one man and his daughter being allowed in after he pleads with the guard and promises to cover her with his hat. Wholly unaffective. While Michael is outside he hears a woman ...
