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.
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.
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!
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.

While I enjoyed the experience, I was delighted the tour was over. I was ready to get back to the B&B and pack, and to get to Roma Termini with enough time to eat and feel organized. I walked a long, hot walk back to Ottavia station, hopped on the subway and was joined by 2 guys from my group. They immediately expressed their annoyance with the man and his daugther. I guess the tour guide and I weren’t the only ones! These ...
... with our luggage by a very sweet young woman.....maybe she felt sorry for us 'oldies' :-) Then a nice young man helped Joy up the stairs with her bags (poor Michael had to manage on his own!). We grabbed a cab, knowing from a previous day trip that it was a 25 minute walk or 10 minute bus ride from an awkward to get to underpass. Very soon we were at our hotel and the staff were brilliant in welcoming us. The room is pleasant and ...
... flag. Before each horse race, all 17 horses get blessed in a chuch from their respective district. If the church has too many steps then the blessing is done in front of the church. If nature calls a horse during the blessing, it is considered good luck. We toured the city for a two hour guided tour. Our bus driver was named Franco and the tour guide was named Lucca. We saw a building with the faces of Michelangelo ...
... tackle the clim 503 steps to the top of the Torre del Mangia. Its Greg and I again and this time no back packs allowed only the camera. Its quite a challenge for me to make it to the top, and it is quite steep and narrow in parts so was very glad I did not pass many people on the journey up.
The views from the top are spectacular. You can see over the whole city and great views of the Piazza below, I can only imagine what ...
