Pamper yourself in the heart of Siena
Sweet sinuous hills, orderly cypress trees on the horizon, multi-coloured fields and enchanting sunsets: this is the distinctive Tuscan landscape and the typical scenery that surrounds Siena. It is the view to enjoy from Hotel Athena: let your eyes roam in a timeless universe from the terrace and the Executive and Deluxe rooms.
An envied 4-star hotel, ideally set like a bastion over the medieval walls of Siena, in the historic centre but leaning out towards the peaceful countryside. Just a few minutes on foot separate the facility from the Duomo, the famous Piazza del Campo and other wonders having the unique service of a free car park for all the guests.
The rooms, divided into different categories to satisfy all kinds of guests and their needs, start from Economy and Standard, simple and convenient solutions, ideal for short stays. More spacious and located on the upper floors of the hotel are the Superior rooms; going up in category are the Deluxe rooms, which enjoy either the view of the countryside or the city roof tops to relax in the open air. Then there are the Executive rooms, large and bright with breath-taking views. There are also large four-bedded rooms or communicating rooms for large families.
Along with the usual amenities in the rooms there is also a kettle for tea, coffee and hot chocolate, free drinking water and a first-class, ecological welcome kit made from olive oil.
For guests who never leave their four-legged friends at home this is the right place: pets are welcome with no limits of size or extra costs: the hotel has kennels, bowls available and small gifts offered by the personnel at reception.
A professional but also warm staff will be able to welcome and inform the guests about their visit as well as offer booking services for tours and tickets. The day at Hotel Athena starts with a rich, sweet and savoury buffet for breakfast with homemade, locally-produced products. The same goes for dinner, enjoyed on the stunning terrace in summer, based on a delicious menu with local Tuscan dishes and the finest wines of the region. Let yourself be pampered by the hospitality at Hotel Athena!
