My partner and I had one day to see Sienna. We arrived in the evening and checked into Athena. Linda at the front desk upgraded us before we even finished saying Ciao! Our room was lovely and we had a private balcony. I hope I can go back and spend more time in that glorious city. When I do I will definitely stay at Athena.
We booked this hotel the night before we arrived and found it to be a lovely place to stay. The staff was great. The accommodations were also quite nice. This was our third hotel to stay in while traveling through Italy. So far it's our favorite.

Lovely hotel, lovely varied breakfast. 20 min to trains. You have to ride 10 escalators up from trains to town. That is an experieince in itself. Smaller than Florence but lots to see and do. Main piazza, Fortezza Medici, churches, parks, views of countryside, restaurants. We were there for fall wine tasting festival. For 15 euros got to taste 50 different wines at least and given crystal wine glass to keep. Not many tourists either. Lovely city.
There is no lift to the second floor, beware if you have heavy suitcases!
The Hotel is old world and some of the fixtures and fittings reflect that.
Breakfast was good and served in a really nice courtyard. Our room was OK with a nice view across part of the town. Local cafes and restaurants are good, being a little bit out from the tourist area they had more atmosphere and were frequented by locals.Overall a good stay with access to all tourist attractions.

All in all we had no issues with the hotel although it isn't actually a hotl but more of a bed and breakfast. Beautiful and very clean. As long as you are able to walk it is close enough to the center of town. My only comment is that we found it very noisy since it is on a Main Street, now this is probably not a problem if you keep the windows closed but we had to keep them open because air conditioning was off for the season and the room was very hot. So ask for a room towards the back of the property. Great cafe latte!
Excellently reception, very curteous and relaxing. Amazing position high up on the hill in medieval Siena. Fabulous but quirky room, new & lovely features. Good breakfast, nice shaded terrace, if weather nice could have an al fresco glass. Lots of tours organised as well.
