Great Siena location

Athena is nestled within the heart of the Siena old town Guests appreciate the ability to get to certain hot points of interest quickly Specifically, the Piazza del Campo, Siena Cathedral, and Siena University can all be reached on foot within minutes.

Free parking

The inclusion of free parking is very important to guests, and those staying at this hotel appreciate that there is easy to access complimentary parking at this location Several guests specifically noted that it can be difficult dealing with parking in Siena otherwise.

Negative Reviews

Poor Wi-Fi

Don’t expect the Wi-Fi Internet access to live up to the other highly-rated amenities at this location Guests report the hotel’s Wi-Fi is a bit of a let down, and could certainly do with some boosting.

Heating issue

A few guests note that the rooms can get cold during certain times of the year There is no per-room temperature controls when it comes to heat Instead, the heating is turned on via a central heating system each year. Guests don’t care much for this arrangement.

Small rooms

While the beds are big and many guests still enjoy the lodging overall, a number of those that stay at Athena note that the rooms are a little too small for their liking.
